This review is from: Thermaltake Level 10 GT (VN10001W2N) Black Steel SECC / Plastic ATX Full Tower Computer Case with Four Fans-1x 200mm Colorshift side fan, 1x 200mm Colorshift top fan, 1x 200mm Colorshift front fan and 1x 140mm rear fan
Pros: Where to Start....
I suppose I must start with the price. I sent in for the MIR, and after that the cost will be $159.99 (with free shipping). For that price, I could not pass up this case. I have been eying it for quite some time.
This case comes loaded with all fans that you need, so you don't have to go out and buy more. It comes with 3 200mm Colorshift fans and 1 x 140mm fan on the back!
Unlike others, I have had 0 issues cycling through the different Fan settings (High, low Fan speed), and color settings
There is tons of room for building in the case. Unlike what many said, in the back there is PLENTY of room for good cable management. Also, the cutout for the CPU is very large and should acommadate pretty much any aftermarket CPU cooler.
The handle is great and the case is HUGE (which is a big plus to me).
The side fan has a dust filter and has been pushed out away from the case, so you can still fit in very large CPU aftermarket coolers and GPUS. I have the GTX 780 Classified, which is much wider than normal cards and it fits with no problems.
The Hot Swap bays are just awesome. It even works with my Velociraptor hard drive (which I was worried that it wouldn't fit)!
Cons: My handle Red Led doesn't work
The front Red light on the right, doesn't work either
The White case wasn't on sale, because I would have bought that one instead
Other Thoughts: This is a good case, but you shouldn't buy it until it is on sale. My last case was the Thermaltake Chaser MK-1 and that was a great case. If you can get that for around $100.00 with free shipping, I would get that insteadREAD FULL REVIEW
Pros: This card is absolutely amazing! ASIC quality on this card scores at a 75.6%! Pretty awesome. This card right from the get go, has the boost clock go to 1189 MHZ with no overclocking! I am impressed
The box is amazing (and has lots of accessories). Yes, I am a box junky and like to have a product in nice packaging. That is a huge plus for me.
I also really like the look of the VRM blue lights and the GPU reactor that glow Blue. Not to mention the backplate, the card just screams awesomeness!
Cons: Not really a con - but this card requires 2x 8 pin pci express connectors. So, if you wanted to SLI, then you would need 4 x 8 pin's. If you only have a couple of 8 pin pci express connecters and 2 x 6 pin connectors - You are in luck!! This card ships with 8 pin to 6 pin converters
Other Thoughts: I have owned many many cards, and I have to say this card is fantastic
I have NEVER seen the card get past the high 60's celcius, even under full load for hours of gameplay. The cooling solution (Twin Frozr IV) design runs quiet and cools effectively.
If you are looking for a gtx 680, I wouldn't look any further. Most games @ 1920x1080 (to 1200p) don't really need the extra 2gb that other cards have to offer. There is only really a handful of games that would make a difference ( and No Battlefield 3 is not one of those games ;) - Max Payne 3 and a few others can benefit from the higher V-ram
Buy this card before it is gone. At the price tag of $459.00, you can't go wrong
