Pros: After looking at many silent pc cases, I settled on this one. I looked up the reviews and according to previous generations, the r5 is a huge improvement in terms of custom builds. The drive cases are removeable to increase air flow which is excellent if you are aiming for silent pc build (less than 20db builds). I was worried about air flow since the vents are on the side on the front of the case, however my pc is running at 30~40C with fan 2 front fan and a strix 980 and cpu overclocked 4690k. Definitely recommend this pc for extremely high performing silent gaming enthusiasts
Pros: Although I do not own a device able to measure the DB of the fan while in operation, I can say that this fan is extremely quiet. The purpose of this purchase was to fit it into my Fractal r5 and my PC build requirement was for the fans to be dead silent while under heavy load.
Pros: No discounnects, or drop in mbps. I was on the fence about getting this since its from a chinese company, but its impressive. Depending on your router, the speed advertised will work as intended.
Cons: Kind of pricey, but you get what you pay for
