Pros: -Lots of room - fits huge gpus, huge cpu tower coolers, etc.
-Looks great - Nice LED fans, clear window, cool/aggressive design
-Great Airflow - Lots of space + huge fans make for great airflow and nice temps
-"Tooless" - Thumbscrews where there are screws, no tools needed for optical drive/hard drive bays.
-Dust Filters - Mostly easily removable dust filters (all except the one on the side fan, but they can all be vacuumed reasonably without taking them out) to keep the components nicely dust-free. (One on the front, the side, and the bottom (for the psu))
-Feet - Keeps the case off the surface it's on to allow air to flow from the bottom (for the psu).
-Cable management - Keeps the case looking tidy and allows more open space for air.
Cons: Cable management - This is probably more my fault than anything, but it would have been nice to have a little more room for cables.READ FULL REVIEW
This review is from: Cooler Master Hyper 212 EVO - CPU Cooler with 120 mm PWM Fan
Pros: -Cools well
Here are some comparison temps (sorry i didnt want to try 3.6 on the stock AMD cooler)-
@3.1ghz w stock cooler
@3.6 ghz w Cooler Master Hyper 212 Evo
This is an AMD bulldozer (AMD FX 8120), btw...thats right, 8 cores @ 3.6 and still a lot of room to go for OCing!
Cons: None as of yet. If I have problems, I will post an addendum to this review. Installation really isn't hard, the instructions and the process itself are quite easy to grasp. Big, though, if that is a problem. Wasn't for me. MEASURE BEFORE YOU BUY.
Other Thoughts: Did couple this with Noctua NT-H1. Works well.
AMD FX 8120 (now @ 3.6)
Gigabyte AMD Radeon 6870
Crucial Ballistix Tactical 8gb (4gbx2) 1600mhz 8-8-8-24
OCZ Vertex 3 120gb (OS and games)
Seagate 1tb (files, music)
Pros: Great performance for the price, i can run everything maxed out (besides bf3, i have to turn down texture detail to high) and in my huge case, it's impossible to hear. Great card. Owned it for about 6-7 months now and i havent had any problems with it. After about 3-4 hours of gamins it can get to 65ish(Celsius) which i say is fairly good, especially compared to Nvidia's card's temps.
Cons: -Long (measure before you buy)
-Fans loud at ~75-80% and up
Other Thoughts: -AMD FX 8120 8-core 3.1ghz (stock now, hoping for ~3.8)
