Pros: -Looks awesome
-Tempered glass door is really convenient
-Cable management is pretty decent
Cons: -Only one USB 3.0 Port on the top, rest are USB 2.0
-The PSU shroud should have some holes in it, for better GPU ventilation
-Airflow could be better
-Should include more hard drive screws as well as screws to attach PCIe devices (Graphics cards, wifi cards, etc)
Overall Review: I know I listed more cons than pros, but honestly, I'm really being nitpicky and a lot of them might be due to my own stupidity (this was my first build). I really like this case and I definitely recommend it. If you'd prefer a mesh front for better airflow, check out the DLM 21 (also by Darkflash).
Pros: -Works fine
-B+ on LTT Tier List
Cons: -Power cable on my unit was a little loose
-Ketchup and Mustard Cables
Overall Review: I've been using it for two weeks with no problems.
Pros: -It just works
Cons: -No RGB on stock cooler :(
Overall Review: Works for all the games I've thrown at it. Would definitely recommend.
Overall Review: Works as advertised without any problems so far. No complaints, would definitely recommend.
Overall Review: Able to reach advertised speeds after enabling XMP in the system. No complaints so far.
Pros: -Easy to understand instruction manual
-Great variety of ports
Cons: -Could use more fan headers
-I/O shield could be improved
-Would like it if the PCI 3 and PCI 2 slots were swapped
Overall Review: Great motherboard with a decent selection of connectivity for the price. Do note that this motherboard does NOT come with onboard wifi; you'll have to buy your own wifi card if you want it. Also, make sure none of the I/O shield tabs end up inside the ports; you might end up frying your board then.
Overall Review: They work fine. Not really much else to say about them.
Pros: -Works great
-EVGA customer support is top notch
-RGB is a nice touch
Cons: -Coil whine when under load
-No screws provided in the box (though I think this is standard for most graphics cards)
Overall Review: Great card overall, works and looks great. You can control the RGB using software you can download from EVGA's website. The only problem I've found with the card is that there is some coil whine when it's placed under load, but I'm able to ignore it, especially if I'm using headphones.
Also, keep in mind that the card is REALLY thick (like 3 PCIe slots).
Overall, would recommend unless you're really sensitive to coil whine. If you don't know what coil whine is, do yourself a favor, look up Linus' video about it on youtube and decide for yourself if you can deal with it before you buy this card.
