Pros: Very understated and stealthy.
Enough room for most cards and drives.
Decent clearance for all but the tallest heatsinks.
3 fans for good ventilation.
Cons: Some of the side panel cables were barely long enough the reach the headers on the opposite corner of the MB.
The screws for the side panel are very delicate and can strip easily.
Pros: 1.5V = lower power consumption or more headroom for overclocking.
890gxm-g65 detected the correct timings on auto.
First pass of memtest86 is clean....but I'll let it run overnight to be safe.
Cons: None so far.
Pros: This is one of the lowest heatsink+fans on the market. I thought I needed a low heatsink for my V351, but after putting this in, there was tons of clearance left.
Installation wasn't too bad on a 890gxm-g65, though I did have to use a pair of pliers to close the latch that was partially blocked by the chipset heatsink.
The fan is upgradable to a 140mm Kaze Maru which can move even more air.
Cons: You cannot use DIMMs with a heat spreader since there is not enough clearance. I had to cut a tooth off of my Ripjaws DIMMs to make it fit, otherwise the heat pipe would rest on top of it. Then again, since it overlaps, the fan blow down onto the DIMMs
