Great looking case

Corsair Crystal Series 460X RGB CC-9011101-WW Black ATX Mid Tower Tempered Glass Computer Case
Corsair Crystal Series 460X RGB CC-9011101-WW Black ATX Mid Tower Tempered Glass Computer Case

Pros: -Tempered glass on the Side AND front. -3 RGB SP120 Fans with the Controller and Hub. Those alone normally go for 60 dollars for the 3 pack. -The Fans/hub are already cable managed so you don't have to worry too much about wiring just simply need to power them. -No need to buy another hub/controller. If you want to add 3 more Sp120 rgb fans, you only will need the fans as they all can plug into the 6 slot hub. -Basically a 400c with glass which was already a great case. -Dust filters are easy to clean and remove. -PSU Shroud which I really like. Helps hide some wiring and is also removable if you wish to show your PSU. -Removable HD Cages if your only using an SSD then that frees up some room as the SSD fits in the back. -Can choose colors right on the case fan control making it easy to switch color schemes. No need to go into the case to use the controller.

Cons: -If you plan on putting a 240mm radiator on top then it might be a tight fit and some ram may not be able to fit with the radiator and the fans. It is possible that some ram can fit it though, mostly low profile ram. Otherwise you have to put the radiator in front which kind of blocks some of the fan lights from going inside the case. Not that big of a deal because the biggest draw is seeing the lights out in front of the case, but some people may not like that. This was also the case in the 400c case. -You have to be careful removing the side glass panel. There is nothing to stop if from falling so prepare to grab it before unscrewing the last screw. Tempered glass panels in general are a little more difficult to work with if your constantly removing it. Not a big deal once you get your machine up and running.

Overall Review: I would totally recommend this to anyone looking to jump into the tempered glass case market. The RGB fans and pretty design make this truly a unique looking case. I was considering either this or the S340 Elite but ultimately decided on this case due to the RGB fans and tempered glass in the front.

Great Cooling Power

Corsair Hydro Series H100i GTX Extreme Performance Water / Liquid CPU Cooler. 240mm (CW-9060021-WW)
Corsair Hydro Series H100i GTX Extreme Performance Water / Liquid CPU Cooler. 240mm (CW-9060021-WW)

Pros: -Easy to install -Solid build quality -Corsair reliability and support -Great cooling performance. -Keeps my i7-6700k OC to 4.5GHz around 55 degrees Celsius under full load.

Cons: -Always a risk with water coolers to have leakage but corsair has great support encase that happens. -Tubing is a little stiff but can be bent a little.

Overall Review: I used to use air coolers but after using this cooler the past month, I may not go back. It makes the build look much cleaner with the added led logo.

Great looking rgb fans

Corsair SP Series, SP120 RGB LED, 120mm High Performance RGB LED Fan (CO-9050061-WW) 3-pack
Corsair SP Series, SP120 RGB LED, 120mm High Performance RGB LED Fan (CO-9050061-WW) 3-pack

Pros: -Multiple colors / effects -Works get with 460x RGB Case -Moves a lot of air -Easy to install -Cheaper than HD120's

Cons: -Had one fan go semi-bad after two weeks. The Lights still turn on but the fan does not spin at startup. However if I push the fan it will start spinning. I have 6 of these fans in my case and the rest work great. In the process of RMA'ing this one fan. -Alot more wiring. 6 Fans = 12 Fan Wires in total

Overall Review: Love these fans and would recommend to anyone looking to spruce up their rig. They are not as bright as the HD120's but imo look better.

Pros: -LEDS! -Breathing Effect -Premium Feeling Heatspreaders

Overall Review: These look fantastic and with the rising cost of RAM currently they aren't that much more expensive than some other basic kits. One of my favorite pieces of my rig. White also goes with everything.
