Most Favorable Review

The last case I'll ever buy.

Cooler Master HAF XB EVO - High Air Flow Test Bench and LAN Box Desktop Computer Case with ATX Motherboard Support
Cooler Master HAF XB EVO - High Air Flow Test Bench and LAN Box Desktop Computer Case with ATX Motherboard Support

Pros: * It's roomy * It's different * It's well-built

Cons: * Wasn't free

Overall Review: I LOVE this case. Seriously, it has so much room for when I'm installing or replacing hardware. Turns into a testbench when testing things out. Just a thing to consider; when I attempted to use the XDock for a backup drive, it wouldnt recognize it. I tried some light troubleshooting to no avail, but even that proved no real problem because the back panel for that can be unscrewed easily. Read that sometimes it's faulty.

Extremely quiet and Great airflow!

Pros: * Quiet * Bright * Powerful

Cons: * Wasn't free

Overall Review: I have 3 in my CM HAF XB EVO and have used them in other builds. Cougar is my go-to for fans. I've tried Rosewill and found them to be a bit on the loud side.

Pros: Dropped 3 degrees Celsius and easy to install. Comes with pre-applied thermal paste.

Cons: A tad bit loud but I personally don't mind.

Pros: Bright. Intensely bright. Pushes a decent amount of air for such a tiny fan.

Pros: Great airflow and bright blue lights.

Cons: Not as silent as expected, but definately not worth removing an egg.

Overall Review: So far COUGAR has proven to have great quiality and reasonable prices. I would definately recommend COUGAR and purchase from them if the need arises.

Amazing!

Pros: Smooth and quiet. Runs cool and looks BEAUTIFUL. I am very pleased with the performance I get on Skyrim wth ultra settings.

Cons: None at all.

Overall Review: Seeing how much of an upgrade this was for my rig, it definately lit the old flame of passion for building gorgeous PCs.
