Pros: Everything -1 complaint...
Cons: The screws that come with this case are a joke... You would think for a 300 dollar case you could get better hardware... I've never seen such horrible mother board screws in my life... Corsiar at provides washers, screws that are not serrated on the back... This is a horrible horrible joke... I love the case but it only takes 9 screws to ruin the whole experience. Those screws if not careful and over tightended could easily damage a mother board...
Other Thoughts: VERY DISAPPOINTING COOLER MASTER... do a better job on the hardware screws you provide and be the product you claim to be. I'm very very very disappointed by this.
I gave this case 3 eggs although it's worth 5, but because the screws are so bad, so horrible that will be my rating. These screws are of low quality and not taking into account the components they are being attached to. I hope they do not cause any problems with my mother board. I should order some mother board mounting screws from corsair at least they are of good quality and does not make me worry about the damage they can cause because they are not serrated on the back side.
Pros: If i could get one that didn't have issues would be nice.
Cons: I have purchased 3 of these for a tri monitor setup for gaming. first one has dead pixels but not enough for exchange or manufacturing replacement.
Second one so far seems okay.
Third one has been sent back twice now. The assembly has been poor at best on the third one. Both had similar problems.
Bezel's are not very well put together the plastic molding process needs to be looked at. Their were a lot of plastic shavings where the bezel meets the LCD panel also assisting in holding the bezel from it's position. sent it back for exchange.
The exchange was sent back because the join that swivels etc.. etc.. allows the monitor to be positioned was very loose to the point the monitor would not stay in position very well. At this point out of 5 monitors I might have 1 that does not have issues.
Very disappointing samsung. Very disappointing. My future monitor purchases will most likely go to a different brand. This has been a disappointing hassle.
I expected better. But NEWEGG on the other hand has been amazing in making sure I have been taken care of as a customer. Thank you NEWEGG!!!...
This review is from: CORSAIR Hydro Series H110 Extreme Performance Water/Liquid CPU Cooler. 280mm
Pros: None - Poor Quality Fans, Make grinding noises not vibration. But grinding like they had been used for 5 years without any cleaning. Horrible Horrible FANS!!!...
Cons: Up till now I have been a hard core Corsair supporter until my last purchase. I built a new machine from ground up. And all but 1 of my Corsair branded items were defective in one way or another. I ended up shipping most of it back and getting different branded items. I will List below what I purchased from Corsair and what I ended up replacing it with. In summary Corsiar has lost a customer. I will no longer hold Corsair in high esteem. They must have changed the manufacturing or moved it to a different country or facility but I've lost faith in them and will no longer purchase Corsair products.
1.) Corsair AXI series AX860I Power supply
Issue: The 24pin mother board cable would not stay plugged in and would creep out of the power supply itself. Basically the plug itself was poorly manufacturerd. Where the clip clips onto the power supply was straight and not angled so that it could latch on.
Replaced with: EVGA SuperNOVA 1000 p3 80 plus Platinum 1000w PSU
LOVE IT!!!... KEEP UP THE GOOD WORK EVGA!!!...
2.) Corsair Carbide Series Air 540:
Video card would not bolt down without pulling the video card out of the slot. Basically the case is built so cheaply that if you looked at the back it bowed outward from the case enough that the components would not bolt in. The case would rock when sitting on a flat surface due to the cheap nature of this case. Additionally the case side panel would not shut flush when reassembled.
Replaced with: Cooler Master Cosmos II... LOVE IT!!!... but one major MAJOR complaint on the Cosmos II... THE MOTHER BOARD SCREWS ARE HORRIBLE!!!...
3.) Corsair HYDRO H110 Extreme performance water/liquid CPU cooler.
Fans are absolute Junk... This thing does not cool better than my old Corsair hydro 80. The fans make horrible grinding noises which will need to be replaced. I will not PURCHASE fans to fix this problem I WILL EXPECT corsair to send me new fans. I did not replace this item, but I can tell you the quality does not impress me on this either. The heatsink portion of this cooler is not flush flat, it actually has a concave bow to it. Very disappointing. I will most likely continue to keep an eye on my temp's until I can afford to replace it with another brand.
4.) Corsiar Dominator Platinum 8GB (2x4GB) x 2. So far so good... I will not hold my breathe at this point. If they go bad I will make sure that Corsair at least lives up to their warranty and get them replaced if I have any issues.
Other Thoughts: This has been a fair unbiased review. I have been an A+ certified technician since 2000. I have been building gaming systems for years. Never have I ever had an issue like this where I have had so many bad parts from one vendor in my history of building computers. The MASSIVE inconvenience cost me more money than I wanted to spend because all of these parts have a limited return policy. So I had to out of pocket a lot of money to get this system up and running to make sure all my components were good to stay within my return policy so that if any other parts were bad i could exchange them.
Corsair... get your act together. DO NOT be like all these companies who build a name and them try and go cheap based on GREED... we the customers will NOT tolerate this. I will NOT purchase anymore Corsair branded products for years to come. When you failed other brands saved the Day Such as EVGA & Cooler Master. This has been one of the worst building experiences I've yet had.
My view of Corsair as of now is BUYER BEWARE... If any of you have also had the same issues please post them to help other customers avoid the nightmare I went through and tell Corsair we will NOT tolerate poor quailty!!!...
