Pros: one game went from 50-200 fps, to 200-750. The grid game that came with it is amazing, really shows off the power this baby has. Runs nice n quiet, can hear it over the cpu fan somewhat. Does run hot but i'll be getting n extra exhaust fan to remedy that somewhat.
Cons: could have come with n extra sticker?!?! haha
Pros: Great design and airflow, PWM and awesome cable length and cable comes sleeved with a molex adapter/4 screws. They blow, and they are good for radiators or filters.
Cons: Could come with voltage resistor but then again these are pwm and I haven't bought the standard ones yet.
Overall Review: Bearings seem to run pretty cool, they give a decent amount of air and that's the only noise you hear is the air.
Pros: Nice looks, great space, nice design. Great airflow. Filters. Cpu backplate cutout. Great customer service.
Cons: Could use more cable management space, this is the v2 so it has more than the v1 but it's still not enough for a super build, for first time its ok. Standoffs aren't standard threading. Must remove front panel to remove top panel. Thin steel. Only came with one fan (see other thoughts)
Overall Review: Fans, they give you one 4 led fan of decent quality. Most of the time I pull these out (and probably do most people) and replace them with good fans so why give you more then 1 when its waste and makes the case cheaper to purchase. I'm used to my last raidmax case, the smilodon with 1mm steel. But its not gonna fall apart on you never the less. Top fan screws.... seems they don't come with them. I emailed them and within 2 days I had my screws. I don't know if they have fixed this and these are already boxed like this, or they just like wasting money, but nether the less AWESOME customer service which raidmax has always seem to give.
Pros: Led, lower power, better picture, lighter etc etc. Came well protected and no stuck pixels. Newegg support is great, price went down while it was being shipped and gave me the lower price.
Cons: Wasn't free. Could've included a HDMI cable, rather than the antique VGA cable...
Overall Review: Replaced my old hp 23 inch lcd with this just because....
Pros: Cheap, looks cool.
Cons: Inverter box for some may be hard to hide.
Overall Review: Using this for my not so old, but old IDE file drive I just can't seem to want to get rid of. Bought it new for dirt cheap (western digital green 320gig for 35 bucks) so I can't complain but I had to get rid of that ugly cable.
Pros: Its got all the power, cables are crazy long. Fits the df-85 like a glove.
Cons: Its heavy but doesn't that mean it has good quality?
Overall Review: I like the flow through design of the fan, its pulling air right from the bottom front 120 through it. Fan on it never kicks up as a result.
Overall the "themis" heatsink I purchased is pretty good quality, the instructions are pretty good. Lots of pieces. Would have liked to see some sort of padding on the backplate but it is plastic. The heatsink interferes with tall memory (gskill sniper on 990fx gigabyte board) Doesn't have to be made taller just cut the lower 3-4 fins from the corner, Or just make it 3-4 fins taller either way. Packaging could have had some thin foam around the heatsink but it wasn't beaten up, just one twerked fin. Fan seems high quality and braided which is nice. Its a bit of a pain to install after you put the heatsink on. Which I would say redesign the crossplate to slip in a slot one side and tighten down the opposite side. For the price its good, no sharp edges it seems. They include thermal paste which I have no idea on quality but if you don't keep any handy its there.
