Pros: Not just a Heat-Pipe Monster. Heat pipes and a base with fins. She works better than stock cooler and well designed. Can't beat the price. No metal
Cons: Had to figure out the 4 securing points mech. But it was short.
Overall Review: Wish I knew what was better, the stock patch of heatsink greese, Or my old tube of paste at home?
3 months and Failed display port..
Pros: Can run some impressive visual games. With overall smooth fps.
Cons: 2 months of ownership and all functions of the display port failed. Board looks fine at site. Wasted money on a super fine monitor to use the display port and not the HDMI. Which I'm down to. Runs hot for sure. Even with everything else liquid cooled. Constantly reminded on some games that it's out of video memory. But not actually out. Lots left. The price was not a happy point either for what you actually get. If a simple part like the display port goes dead in 2-3 months I shutter to think its not long for this world..
Overall Review: Cooling solution could be easily designed cheaper and perform better. Evidently Quality control is a problem Dieing display ports is not an ok problem for a VIDEO CARD!
Nice, If you didn't buy it
Pros: Good light source, No burning hot light housing. Mobile work light (cordless).
Cons: Bulbs are hard hard to find. And pricey for what its used for. Bat. Life is ok, but could be better. Over all the thing is just too pricey to compete with the big cheaper LED work lights we use. Basically no one on the crew uses it, so as not to be responsible for it.
Overall Review: Nice idea. Not executed right though.
Wow, who could accually want this
Pros: Cheap price for a ATX fit case. striking looks for the money. came with one small noisy fan. Front phone jacks and 2 USB's. DVD Rom drive hider.
Cons: Cheap thin made in china steel case. Maybe strong enough to sit my 2 year old atop without it collapsing. No place for front fan intake = No Hard drive cooling! Front plastic face plate is easily scratched by fingernails and is only removed with 6 itty bitty screws. All fan openings are terrible for airflow= loud fans. Mainboard post holes NOT FULLY tapped with thread. They start and the you have to crank those buggers in with a nut-driver. 1 smaller bay only fits old school floppy drives. Was not happy trying to mount my flash card reader.
Overall Review: This case would not have angered me so much if it was about $13 less and free shipping. Lots of tweaking and modding to even get to standard needed features. Also was surprised that the case had moved while installing windows. 2 H-Drives No case fans or dvd mounted, and -no pads on case feet- Make for ghostly-who moved the comp case experience. Bottom line: Give Gigabyte the finger for wasting time and money, and the people of china's steel. Spend the money on a low cost COOLER MASTER model. No matter what the cost, Fresh air front fan... Tourists.
Smooth for renters
Pros: What can I say other than Panasonic from now on. We had no cable TV so we just watch movies... all the time. 60,000+hrs. easy in the first 3 yrs. a good theater system. nice input jacks.
Cons: Some how a disc was dislodged and crammed in housing of player... Had no idea for a year till i was cleaning the fan in the back.
Overall Review: No doubt this has been well worth the money spent for like 5 or 6 yrs. of use! And the sound system can bump a party something fierce. And tick off the neighbors!
