Pros: -Runs fairly quite considering how big the fan is on it
-Keeps CPU around 15C - 25C for about anything I do
-Works great, haven't had any issues with it
Cons: -HUGE, that's about all I can say. I had to take out a side Case fan for it to fit and I have a Full Tower
Pros: Probably one of the best card readers I have found. Great for SD cards and MicroSD cards. Really fast transfer rates since it has a USB 3.0.
Pros: Great LED's, nice and bright but not too bright. Great drive bays, plenty of room to expand. Overall great amount of space inside the case for great airflow. Nice access to USB 3.0 ports. Front pops off easily to switch out fans when needed or for expanding. Fan controllers have easy access to on top of the case. Fan speeds from slow to high and turning them off completely. Great when the fan controllers actually work (I explain this more down below). I ended up switching out 3 fans with green LED fans. Makes the case look sick :D Planning on replacing all the blue LED fans with green ones sometime (I would of gotten the Skyline-07-Green case DIYPC was selling on newegg but they were out of stock). Overall awesome case!
Cons: Okay, this is a great case for the price but DIYPC HAS to start including instructions for their fan controllers with their cases. The fan controllers took me awhile to figure out how they work. I kept shorting out everything when I would turn the fans off or on slow. After awhile, figured it out and they work great now. Also, the HDD Hot swap on top of the case was not working at all for me for some reason. I have the cables hooked up correctly to my motherboard and psu. I don't get it. Oh well, I won't use it anyways. Just would be nice if it did work. Besides that, those are the only two cons I had with this case.
Overall Review: DIYPC needs to start including instructions for the fan controllers with this case or any other case they include them with. It's a BIG pain to figure it out.
Pros: Amazing GPU! That's about all I can say. It makes your display so much cleaner, smoother, and crisp. In the drivers for it, you can fine tweak it for pc games and it has some great features for that. I can now play a ton of games in HD with no lag whatsoever. Another great feature to the GPU is that it has two HDMI's (I bought the older model - ZOTAC AMP! ZT-61003-10M GeForce GTX 650 2GB 128-Bit GDDR5 PCI Express 3.0 x16) and it's so dang small it will virtually fit in any tower. Looks tiny in my full tower case haha. Overall, amazing card and no regrets buying it. I've had this card since last year it works great for dual monitors with my LED TV. I would recommend this to anyone that wants a great GPU for a good price.
Cons: None. It's too awesome for a con xD
Pros: Sick LED's and can change it to a couple other colors
IT'S A FREAKIN DECEPTICON KEYBOARD! ~ TRANSFORMERS
Nice keys and shortcut keys
Overall nice keyboard
Cons: Wish there was a choice of all Green LED's for the entire keyboard instead of the Decepticon icon being green itself.
Overall Review: It took a week to get to my house because it's from China. It's a good quality keyboard though.
Pros: Two HDMI's for hookup to two TV's/Monitors.
Very small so the card fits about anywhere in the tower.
Very very quiet, I can't hear the fan on it at all.
Great display, I noticed it's clearer then my last graphics card.
Cons: Nothing, works great!
Overall Review: It's my first time using this brand but it works and I like how small the graphics card is. Fits like a glove in my tower xD
Pros: Awesome RAM, really fast. I have always trusted G.SKILL. I love the Ripjaws X series. I have used them for 5 years and they run great :)
Cons: None at all
Overall Review: Couldn't get my motherboard to set the speed to 1600 (went to default of 1333 mhz). Oh well, still awesome. Had to tweak some settings on windows 7 to make my system recognize the 16gigs but besides that, really happy :)
