Pros: -Works as advertised
Cons: -Red light is dim
Pros: -Tempered glass, glass and glass
-Beautiful case to display all your goodies
-Was easy to install everything and cable manage
-Updated with PSU shroud and rubber grommets to run cables at the bottom of the motherboard
-difficult to move case around
-while installing need space to set aside glass panels
Overall Review: Got it on sale for $140. I love it. You will too.
Pros: -Blazing fast (OS startup, installs, loading)
-Looks cool on motherboard
Cons: -Lot of finessing to install on mobo cause of size (with small screw)
Overall Review: -Installed windows onto this thing and it boots super duper fast.
Pros: -Fast 6 cores
-Get 144+ Frames in most titles (paired with a 1070 GTX)
Cons: -Only 6 threads (can't multitask with two monitors as well as I hoped)
Overall Review: -I upgraded from an i7 980x (yep you read correctly). This is a very good CPU if you primarily game. If you plan on multitasking more you may want to look at the 8700k as is has 12 threads vs 6 threads. The i7 980x has 6 cores 12 threads and did a better job with two monitors compared to the 8600k (gaming on one monitor, videos on the other).
Pros: -Good value for a z370 board
-10 power phases
-Easy BIOS use
Cons: -Board has minimal RGB lighting
Overall Review: -It is not the best of the best, but it works well with my 8600k
Pros: -Good exterior build quality
-Easy to install in most cases/motherboards
Cons: -Gave my new build Memory_management BSOD
-Errors in MemTest86
Overall Review: -My experience was not a good one with this product. Maybe you will have better luck. I ended up picking up a pair of DDR4 3000mhz Corsair Vengeance and haven't had any issues so far.
Pros: -Keeps CPU cool (Using 8600k and H100 GTX)
-Easy to work with
-got 8-10 degrees less than Coolermaster thermal compound
Pros: -32Gb to do anything
-Compact, super compact
-Tiny, super tiny
Pros: Very spacious, black finish in-and-out, has slots for about 6 extra fans, cable tucking is a breeze, the lights on the front two fans make a pretty white spiral :D and there is a button to turn them on or off.
Cons: The hard-drive tool-less slots are easy to pull out and put in. However to fit a 3.5 hard-drive into one of these, I had to pull the 2 pins that would fit inside the screw holes off because they didn't match the holes my hard-drive had.
Overall Review: Would recommend this for any build.
Pros: Runs Battlefield 3 Ultra High 60-80 FPS. Nuff said.
Cons: Didn't come with a McRib... I'm hungry.
Overall Review: Will consider getting another for SLI.
Pros: Booted up Windows fast, games loaded up in seconds (Battlefield 3, Crysis 2, etc.)
Cons: Died in about 4 days. Windows would freeze up and accessing programs was impossible. Did a clean install of Windows and the problem recurred after an installation of video drivers. Ran tests on another computer and the SSD was unrecognized.
Overall Review: Sending it back for another. Hopefully this one won't fail.
Pros: Works like a dvd-drive should work. Easy installation. Sata connection is great.
Cons: It takes it time to load up dvds/cds.
Overall Review: Very good buy for a new computer builder.
