Pros: This thing is massive. When I first took it out of the box I had reservations on whether or not it would fit in my Corsair Carbide Series 500R case. Luckily it did with room to spare. It keeps my CPU around 82-85°F.
Cons: The instructions were not the greatest but if you've installed coolers you can figure it out pretty easily.
Other Thoughts: As I mentioned above this thing is massive. Definitely check your dimensions before purchasing. Also if you use high profile RAM you can't use the dual fan configuration. As it is you have to mount the fan on the opposite side of the RAM.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: I wanted something that didn't look like a gamers case or had so much LED lighting you could light the room with it. After looking around I found this case which to me was aesthetically pleasing, doesn't scream out "look at me" and had a button to turn off all LEDs. Plus with the rebate it was a no brainer for me.
The case is well ventilated with the fans provided and has options to add even more fans. While the HD trays may seen flimsy at first when you attach them to a hard drive it's a non issue. If you have a 2.5" SSD drive they easily attach to the tray from the bottom via screws with the holes provided. Cable management is pretty decent but in my case I had a little difficulty closing the side where the cables are located.
Other Thoughts: I didn't put this in the cons section because it might be an issue with just my setup. But for my non modular Corsair PSU the 4 pin CPU power cable was not long enough to route through the cable management system to my ASRock Z87 Extreme6.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: After two months so far so good. Card runs everything at max settings with no issues. With normal use the temps hover around 78-79°F and with BF4 it's around 108-110 °F. The card operates very quietly as well even when under heavy load. The Sapphire logo also lights up when on if you're into that sort of thing.
Other Thoughts: The card is very long. With my Corsair Carbide Series 500R case I barely have half an inch clearance between the card and the HD drive cage.READ FULL REVIEW
