This review is from: ZALMAN Z11 Plus Black Steel / Plastic ATX Mid Tower Computer Case
Pros: The case is amazing, simply put.
I've had this case for something about 2 years now, and I still love this case.
The summer after I bought it I moved and I dropped my computer *really really* tough, on concrete. It fell with a thud and I was convinced that everything in there was completely trashed. I didn't think *anything* survived that drop.
To my shock, everything still worked- and the parts I'm still using from that drop STILL work. It's safe to say this is a really really sturdy case- the only thing damaged by the fall was the case itself. Multiple plastic pieces on it broke off or cracked, and the metal itself took so much of the force that it's very very hard to close this case up.
But everything inside still works perfectly.
The case before this one I was using a really small case that had *horrible* ventilation- my computer was legitimately BSOD'ing from overheating. It was terrible. After I got this case none of that was an issue- the first time I turned it on after moving all my parts over I thought I broke something because it was so quiet.
It's still really quiet- one of the fans (not sure which) buzzes when I first turn on the computer for about 30 minutes then it's whisper quiet the rest of that day- that fan is just loud and needs replacing is all.
As far as space goes, I highly reccomend this to people making their first build, or people who prefer a modest sized build...
Actually, ignore that. I'd recommend the Z12 Plus for that. It's actually the next case I'm getting- I loved this case so much, to replace it, I'm getting the Z12 Plus. Even my friend I told this case about to loves this case. It's just a phenomenal case.
Cons: I can't think of anything specifically "bad" about this case. It can be a bit annoying to clean but that's about it. Mainly because mine is broken, though. I'm not a fan of the side panel though.
Other Thoughts: This is overall a great case that I definitely recommend- and that's all there is to it.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: Has a bit of weight to it, which I personally love, great lagless sensor, neat looking design and LEDs, feels very solid
Cons: Ambidextrous design probably isn't for everyone. Button sensitivity takes a while to get used to- they're very sensitive, which is GOOD, but it takes some getting used to if you're coming from a bad mouse like me.
Other Thoughts: Overall, this mouse is great. All the cons I've listed are very minimal disturbances. I've seen alot of folks talk about how they hate the software that ships with the mouse, but I personally love it. It works, and gives me alot of ways to customize my mouse. Albeit, the DPI setting only lets you choose between 4 different DPI settings, but still good software. I also think it lacks the ability to change your profile IN GAME.
Regardless, this mouse is perfect for me, and I do a variety of things, not just FPS shooters with this computer.
My word of advice is to DISABLE the two buttons that sit near your pinky and ring finger, because those [for me] just got in the darn way.
Pros: Well, it's RAM. It works or it doesn't. This RAM works, and from this set, I've had no issues. Runs sweet enough.
Haven't gotten to test these for gaming though, not yet. [PSU issues. WIll update this when I do]
Other Thoughts: The first pair I bought of these were DOA, unfortunately. Thanks to Corsair's amazing RMA process, I was able to get them sent back in and easily have them replaced, though.
No issues with these what-so-ever, though, and I won't hold a set of duds against a perfect 5.
