Pros: After over 5 years I had to...
1.Take 2 fans out, added car motor oil(literally) then put them back in.
2. maintain the "dusting regimen"
3. bend the hdd rack to fit the msi 1080 duke oc
5.Seriously, no one will probably see this, but this case deserves the recognition after 5+ years.
6.Even flew this cross country, and amazingly the case experienced no jet lag...lol
Cons: See number .3 above
Overall Review: If your a gamer
If you can find it
If you can afford it
Pros: Fit fine (Antec df-85), asus x79 mobo, gtx 680sc and 1080 duke oc,
1. INSTALL/SEAT IT CORRECTLY in correct "per channel" slot as the picture in the manuel shows. (B-1 and D-1)
2. Google for your bios options, enter bios and either enable xmp or use aitweaker to pick your ram speed. (1600=799.9x2)
3. antec DF 85, x79 sabertooth, 2 sticks of the above, 1 ssd, 3 hdd, i7 3930k 3.8, h100 cpu liquid cooler, msi gtx 1080 duke oc
1000 watt rosewill.
Cons: My own lack of patience.
Overall Review: 5 years later and just now am getting 2 more.
SIDE NOTE: Asus C/S teams fully kicks mule!
If you have an ASUS mobo and an issue, they will help you over the phone until its fixed.
Thanks NEWEGG and Thanks Gskill!
Pros: Silent at 68c (max temp), at 65% fan speed under custom fan arc. Frozen and silent.
Clock speed (while gaming) 2012mhz out of the box.
Gaming? Put a game in, any game. This thing will shred it!
Replaced my evga gtx 680 sc (had since launch) with this and I'm glad I did.
No, you can't have it!
Will not let you down!!!
Cons: I had to bend my drive rack to get it to fit, and I noticed the 2 feet on the mounting bracket were slightly bent stopping it from mounting. Bent them gently back and VIOLA! Dropped right in. No need to dock an egg for that as I got to take out pc anger on my case...HAHA I win...
RGB? Just Ehn.
Overall Review: RECOMMENDED FOR ALL!!
Will definitely purchase from MSI in the future!
Next MOBO?. . . .MSI!
Thank you for such a wonderful product!!!
Pros: Drive is extremely fast. It can be sent back (RMA) for just a few stamps as it weighs almost nothing. That was a joke. . . But not really, I am sending it 8-3-12 Back to corsair. I have heard they are awesome. Another pro is the opportunity to strengthen my resolve, hence I am now less apt to flip out when my computer devices malfunction. So they even helped me as a man. Good looking out corsair, they replied and took care of it the next day!!!
Cons: Having to see the upset on my wife's face when I did everything to trouble shoot and the only problem was the ssd. Even ate my pride and took it to best buy as I have 2 years geek squad tech support. She was very upset having based the other parts ( from new egg totaling over $3000) solely around this drive. Sorry the gtx 680 was from a new egg censored competitor.
Overall Review: I will still purchase corsair products, they are the most trust worthy name in business, that truly care about their people. CORSAIR FOREVER!!!!!!
... I am still a little sour though, If you could of seen the devastated look and the tears, it would of melted you.
