Train keeps rolling
Pros: Amazingly fast. Can't get it to slow down. Dual core technology is great for multi-tasking. Easily runs many programs simultaneously. Great value compared to intel.
Cons: Marriage isn't an option.
Overall Review: First build, my last computer was really slow (1.3 ghz celeron). Amazed with performance.
It's RAM, it's cheap (after MIR)
Pros: Lowest price I've found (after mail in rebate).
Cons: Heat spreaders seem flimsy was worried about them upon install. I HATE mail in rebates.
Overall Review: Already had 2 gigs of GSkill RAM. Didn't notice a speed increase, but probably due to fact that I'm not even close to maxing out what I had. Overall, good purchase.
Huff and a puff
Pros: Blows a decent amount of air out.
Cons: Seems a little flimsy upon install... wouldn't want to travel w/ this in my case.
Overall Review: Like others.... I'd like to see cards that extended farther out into the case to get closer to the core of the video card. Didn't notice a drop in temps, but I'm a little obsessed with cooling and already had a very cool running system.
Doubles as a hair dryer
Pros: Lots of flow. Highest CFM I could find. Adjustable speed.
Cons: Fan is big... I was it to be big, but this thing is huge. A little noisy.
Overall Review: Make sure you have a pretty big case as this is going to take up lots of room. Very pleased with performance, keeps everything nice and cool inside my system.
Pros: Lots of cables to power just about any system. Quiet fan, blue LED. No complaints yet.
Cons: Lots of cables. I mean, it's amazing how many there are. It's quite a handful working with this power supply.
Overall Review: After binding up the loose cables and putting them in a single area, all the cables were manageable. Impressive design, mucho power, very satisfied overall.
He seems like a nice guy
Pros: Mostly solid construction. Slide in drives are a joy to work with. This case is HUGE (pro and con i guess). Easily fit everything I need in there with room to spare. Having standoffs built in was a nice touch.
Cons: Case fans are big, but don't move a lot of air.
Overall Review: This was my first build. If I ever need to do one again, I'll use this case.
