DIYPC Adventurer-9601G Black/Green Steel Gaming ATX Mid Tower Computer Case with 5 x 120mm Green Fan and 1 x USB3.0
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: 1 week to 1 month

Pros: 5 120 mm. fans. Cool green LED color scheme. Good Airflow. Toolless design. Enough room for my build.

Cons: As many other reviews has this is not a full tower. I had seen this in other reviews and so was aware of this when I bought it. I was still surprised though when I got it how much smaller than a full this tower is. this tower is barely bigger than a mid. I mean like 1" taller and wider than the mid tower that it replaced. It should be labeled a mid tower not a full tower.

Other Thoughts: I only gave it 4 eggs due to it being advertised as a full tower but is closer to a mid. I am actually happy with the size of it as I already had a full tower and didn't want another one quite that large, but needed more space than the mid I had offered. I have a cooler master TPC 812 cooler on my fx 8350 and I couldn't put the side panel of my mid tower on, this I can, although just barely. So if you are looking for a tower with just a bit more space than a mid, but do not want a full, this is a good option. If you want a true full tower do not get this.

Cooler Master TPC 812 - High Performance CPU Cooler with 2 Vapor Chambers and 6 Heatpipes
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: 1 week to 1 month

Pros: Large, good heat dissipation, Looks nice.

Cons: I mounted this on an AMD FX processor, and the only way that I could see that it mounted was with a vertical airflow through the cooler. This wouldn't be a big deal if your case has a vent on the top but mine does not. It would be nicer if this cooler could be mounted on AM3+ boards and have a horizontal airflow. This is why I took an egg off of the review. Other than this I am very happy with the cooler.

Other Thoughts: This cooler is large. I knew it was when I bought it so not a bad thing for me, but check your dimensions before buying, I currently have it in a mid ATX tower, and the side panel touches the cooler. Also memory clearance is and issue as well as this cooler sits over top of the DIMMS. Many high performance ram sticks with heat spreaders will not fit underneath it. I am using G-skill Ripjaw series ram, and it does fit with the heat spreaders, just barely though.

ARCTIC Accelero TT II VGA Cooler - nVidia & AMD, Dual Quiet 92mm PWM Fans, SLI/CrossFire
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: 1 week to 1 month

Pros: Quiet, and cools the card effectively.

Cons: Large. Takes up 3 slots in case. I was aware of this before purchasing product so I am not taking away any eggs for that.

Other Thoughts: Due to the generic fit application of this product, installation is a little time consuming, and not the easiest cooler that I have installed on a PC component. The fact that this will fit so many applications though, makes the pricing of this cooler quite nice. I would recommend this cooler to anyone trying to reduce card temp or cooler noise. I installed this on a 470 primarily because I was sick of the extremely loud stock cooler. This is keeping the card cooler and way quieter.
