Great MoBo

Pros: Great motherboard if you're trying to build a low budget but quite decent system. Works like a charm.

Cons: None.

Overall Review: Some sort of heatspreader on the south bridge would be nice. Even if a cheap one.

Incredible case!

Pros: Most of this is directed towards cons I've read about this case. This case has an advanced cooling design... all you have to do is learn how to PROPERLY utilize it. My system temp has not gone over 35C. And I got 8800GTs. Hard drive fan installation is NOT complicated. Just gotta have a bit of common sence :) Oh, and this thing IS quiet.

Cons: None. Got exactly what I wanted and more.

Overall Review: A high performance machine with air cooling, will NOT be completely silent. Even liquid cooling makes some noise. Don't bash a state of the art product simply because you don't know how to use it.

Great case!

Pros: Very neat case for a budget build. Wiring was a breeze with this case. Good cooling. (Feeling lazy, so not including temps) Looks great in the dark.

Cons: Not for 8800 cards. Period. Just enough space for 8600. Smudges very easily. Not enough to deduct an egg.

Overall Review: For the price, it's hard to find a better case. It's a mid size tower, so naturally it's not for "top-of-the-line" video cards. If you want a midsize case that is really designed for those, the the Zalman-Z.
