Pros: Much quieter than my old ps (no buzz.) Looks good.
Cons: Not stable. Caused random freezes on my computer, 12v rail wasnt stable. It was powering a 4 year old computer, it should have been powerful enough.
Overall Review: Hoping I just got a lemon, waiting for an rma to see if that is the case.
Pros: Love the small size, the backlighting is just right for a dark room (bright enough to see, not bright enough to blind you). Very responsive.
Cons: Short usb cable, purchased a cheap extension for just a few dollars to get rid of that problem.
Overall Review: Great keyboard.
Pros: Looks really nice, kept my e6300 pretty cool.
Cons: Mounting method isnt the best out there, took several tries to get it seated properly, and once it got on there the idle temps were in the low 30s, but the load temps in TAT would jump up to 55c+ real quick.
Overall Review: Probably just my fault that it didnt cool as well as I hoped, it was my first after market hsf that I installed, but I have seen better built mounting pins (these were really "soft" feeling).
6 stars for the looks though.
Pros: Keeps my e6300 as cool as my case temps (around 29c), and it keeps it under 45c with a 100% load in TAT. Used arctic silver 5 and a scythe 120mm fan instead of stock.
Cons: Very tight fit on a gigabyte p965 s3 board, but it does fit just barely.
Overall Review: The 775 clips seem more well built than on my old heatsink, you can really tell when they are click.
Pros: Ok, you can convert a 5.25 inch bay to hold a floppy drive, it comes with the stuff for it. Took a couple of minutes to figure out though.
Overall Review: Might get dusty. Great layout if you keep your computer under a desk.
Pros: Case runs much cooler than my old case. Having 2 120mm fans in the middle of the case (run in the front and one really in the middle) makes for great airflow over the mother board. Another 120mm fan over the hard drives makes that run great too.
Cons: No dedicated 3.5 inch bay, and the adapter that it comes with requires the removal of one of the front fans.
Overall Review: Dropped the temp on my raptor hard drive from 38c to 18c, and the idle temp on my 7600gt from 52c to 37c. Works great with an extra 120mm fan in the middle of the case (you have to supply this yourself though. )
Pros: Roomy enough, lights look good, stays cool.
Cons: 250mm fan was DOA, which worked out good since the aftermarket heatsink I had wouldnt fit with the fan installed. Also didnt come with any spacers to mount the motherboard with.
Overall Review: Good case for the money.
Pros: Great mettalic blue paint finish, runs quite and smooth.
Cons: Cables were a bit long for my case, but thats not its fault.
Overall Review: Really nice power supply for the money.
