Pros: Lots of air

Cons: Rosewill customer support has stopped me from buying ANYTHING from them again. First case shipped from Memphis TN, the electronics in this case were junk. The power switch caused random turn offs and reboots, unplugged the switch, no more problems. The side case fan can not be disconnected unless you have little hands and can reach the circut board tucked in at the top front of the case. The electronics board that the fans plug into was wired very poorly, and looks like a 5th grader did it. Second case shipped from Edison NJ, this case worked fine, the wire from the side fan now has a quick disconnect on it, an improvement from the other case, and the electronic board that all the fans plugs into is neatly wired. It looks like they made improvements on the case, possibly from all the complaints/RMA's on the first set of cases. There have been 32 complaints out of the last 100 reviewes for the power button, this is a real and SERIOUS issue with this case.

Overall Review: USE CAUTION when ordering this case! Newegg customer support rocks, this was my first return in over $10,000 of products ordered since 03/12/2004. After talking to Rosewill customer support, and the emails i got back from them, i will NEVER buy ANYTHING from them again. The next lines are a copy/paste from rosewill customer support. Unfortunately, the Rosewill/Newegg warehouse only receives these units in whole full units so if any parts that are sent are from canalized spare units and that means there is not way to do any testing on spare parts for this unit. The next line is what they said after i told them i wanted NEW parts to replace on my NEW case. Our most sincere apology if you have found the Rosewill replacement procedure unsatisfactory by your standards. Although the same procedure is offered for any Rosewill replacement product as stated below since Rosewill is not the direct manufacture of the products offered but the sole Newegg home rebrand.

Junk, you get what you pay for

Cooler Master SickleFlow 120 - Sleeve Bearing 120mm Blue LED Silent Fan for Computer Cases, CPU Coolers, and Radiators

Pros: Nice light, quiet

Cons: I bought 4 of these on 02-24-2012 to use on my H100, and another on 02-28-2012 for the back of my 650D case. I have so far replaced the 4 fans on the H100, and this morning at 2 am i was woke to the last fan dying. In under 3 months i had all 5 fans die. They rattle, and make horrible sounds. Back to using the stock fans that came with the cooler.

Overall Review: Going to use the Noctua NF-S12B next http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16835608009 These things are a waste of money. What are the chances of having 5 defective fans in 3 months, more likley just poor quality.

Very Nice

Pros: I Have been using Asus for over 10 years, they never fail to impress.

Cons: A double slot card such as the EVGA GTX 580 if in slot 1 covers the fan for the southbridge. No power or reset switches on the board, like on my AMD M4A79T Deluxe. While it comes with lots of fan headers, if you run fans on the ram, it uses up 2 fan headers, and if you run the fan for the I/O Controller, you run out of spots for top and rear fans.

Overall Review: Stay with Asus, my minor cons are not even close to making me want to switch brands.
