Pros: Very sturdy fans, even when i had to clip off some excess to get it to fit in my Cooler Master HAF X 943. careful doing so because you can break it. Moves alot of air threw RAD into the case.
Cons: Had to have them push in to the case from the top because the fan blades seem to get stuck in the fan adapter for the RAD. Scared me almost lost a fan due to that. BE sure to watch fans wen starting them up the first time. Not really a con just mishap on my case.
Overall Review: Love the design on the fans, it make them look really beefy. even tho I cant see them under all the mesh and dust guards, still makes me feel better knowing they look AWESOME.
Pros: Really nice looking, Dose what it says. The screen is really sharp looking and easy to use. Would suggest this to any one to keep your case clutter free from mulit 3 to 2 pin connectors. That and it give the case a really nice look.
Cons: The switcher knobs can be a pain to turn for fan switching. They should have made it a bit better grip instead of smooth like the fan controller knobs.
Overall Review: I cut one of my 5 1/2 bays in half to make room for 400mm rad in my Cooler Master HAF X 943 and it fit perfect int the now "5 1/2" 1/2 bay. :D
Pros: The two 6 pin power cords are located in the back of the card which make it really easy and clean looking for cable managemant. Alos they run great with High res, ambient, DX11, which makes cloth texture look amazing.
handles every thing i have been able to thorw at it at ease, Ecept FFXIV. Will not push the game at full settings even with SLI. But dose run the game at high settings with smooth fluid like movements.
Cons: The cards run really hot, 100C in my Cooler master HLFX 945, Water cooling would be highly recomended, if running extream games or OC'ing. Other than that this card is AMAZING.
Overall Review: Running two of these cards with phy decated to the second card.
Pros: Installed well, with no issues. Well made, and has a good weight to it. also, it has extra power for overclocking built right in to the board. Also you can SLI and Cross Fire. has really good LED indicators which tell you what is going on. really great for trouble shooting. Also having the Start and Reset button on the board ROCKS!! Rog is another great feature you cant miss out on. MAKE sure to use it! has lots of 4 pin fan connectors, wich you can plug in 3 pin connectors to it. comes with really good programs, along with really really good audio! GREAT BUY!!
Cons: None really, just one small problem... the Leds that you use to see if your erroring out are covered with the 24 pin connector. Just bad placement.
Overall Review: CrossHair Formula V
Antec 1200 watts
Gskill sniper 16 gigs
AMD 6 core AM3
Soon to have 3 GTX 570s
Pros: Installed with out issue, Still using the stalk fan, which keeps it low for surfing the web for now. Have not been able to push the CPU yet.
Cons: Works GREAT, no Cons here. well except im using the Stalk fan!! Just in till i get Water cooling.
Pros: Works great with the Crosshair Formula V!! Lifetime Warranty threw Gskill. Heat spredder well crafted well.
Cons: One out of four was bad, had to RMA to newegg. Fist time with newegg and their support was really good. Got it RMA with ease, Only problem is that I had to pay for shipping back, so to get them back I will have to pay shipping 3 times.
Pros: Gold rated, also has all the connectors you could ever need.
Nicely rappted cables, and easy to bend and tuck around the HAF X full tower.
Cons: None! It works Well!
Pros: the case has very large cooling fans, and seems to be build tough, also the case is very BIG the pictures on newegg dose not do it justice. both side panels come off for easy wire management and has a port side hole for cpu cooling replacement. over all "a great case"
Cons: so far the only con is the screws that attach to the wheel mounts dont fit the holes and threads given. with a little bit of man power, you can get the wheels mounted hopefully with out stripping the screw them self.
Overall Review: this is my first time building a computer, and the case is my first peice of the build. if any one has any info that i have over looked here is the build.
this case ove couse!
