Pros: Fast and it works!

Cons: None

Other Thoughts: Memory either works or it doesn't. I have 4 of these bad boys in my system for a total of 32Gb of memory and I've had absolutely zero issues with it. I have yet to attempt to OC it, so I can't speak for that. Great memory for the price! I'd definitely recommend!

Rosewill - BRONZE Series - 1000-Watt Active PFC Power Supply - Continuous @ 104 Deg. F (40C), 80 PLUS Bronze, Semi-Modular Cable Design, ATX 12V v2.3 / EPS 12V, SLI & CrossFire Ready - RBR1000-MS

Pros: is partially modular, but I'm not sure if this is a pro or a con. Some of the non-modular cables weren't needed for my build, so they are just sitting at the bottom of my case, cluttering it up. Regardless, I'm running quite a bit of hardware and SLI nvidia GTX 660's without any sort of problem what so ever.

Cons: The cable length sucks. I have this thing installed in a Rosewill full tower case and you'd think that they would have given consideration to the lengths needed IN THEIR OWN CASE! But alas, they did not. I ended up having to purchase an extension for the 12V rail to connect properly to my motherboard, which was quite annoying. This might not be an issue however if running a mid-tower case. Beware if running a full tower set up though!

Other Thoughts: Decent power supply for the money, but if I had to do it all over again, I'd probably go with a different power supply.

Pros: This case is absolutely huge! I'm running an AMD FX-8350 OC'd to 4.7Ghz and along with watercooling and case fans, this thing never goes above 35 Celsius. You shouldn't have any trouble fitting even the biggest of graphics cards in this monster. The additional USB ports and audio controls also come in handy as well!

Cons: I don't know if this is necessarily a con for the case itself, but I also purchased a Rosewill 1000w power supply and the 12v rail just simply is not long enough to reach the top of the motherboard.The power supply states that each rail is 18" long, but even at that length, it isn't long enough to reach. Take that into consideration if purchasing this case.

Other Thoughts: For the money, I'd highly recommend this case! The only oddity that I can't decide if I like or not is that when the case goes into standby mode, the two red lights at the top of the case blink until it's taken out of standby. If it's in another room, no big deal. If you have this case in a room that you're sleeping in however, it would probably drive you crazy.
