Pros: Big case, Sturdy, Decent amouunt of airflow due to the mesh and due to the dual 120mm Fans.
Cons: Blue light isn't too bad but at night it's rather annoying, my 92mm man I installed on the side seems to kick out more air than my two 120mm fans....and I hate the case alarm thing, even with it connected to my motherboard it still keep prompting me at boot that my case was recently opened.
Overall Review: Decent case, worth the money, cools well, a lot of room. I just wish I could do my wiring better so that it'd be cleaner. Quick fix for that case alarm issue, just set in bios to halt on no errors. *8800GTS 640MB, 2gig OCZ PC8500 RAM, Intel Core 2 Duo E6750 2.6Ghz, Western Digital 160GB 16MB Cache 7200rpm Hdd*
Pros: Really good overclocker. Nice performance even when not overclocked. I run oblivion with 2 gigs of ram with slow down only when I go out to the main field and try to turn the screen really fast.
Cons: Like everyone else says, the stock fan sucks. I have decent ambient temperatures now, in fact I rearranged my entire room to accomodate my new system. Runs at about 50C idle and about 79C full load....not good.
Overall Review: I want the most bang for my buck so I'm going to overclock my system and I guess I need a better cooling device. Good bang for your buck though. Got real high scores on benchmarking tests. *8800GTS 640MB, 2gig OCZ PC8500 RAM, Intel Core 2 Duo E6750 2.6Ghz, Western Digital 160GB 16MB Cache 7200rpm Hdd*
Pros: I like the fact that it has a lot of overclocking capabilities right out of the box. Nice design, nice color scheme, I love that it displays error codes for me.
Cons: Every 1 or 2 days my computer might go into hibernate for a while. When I try to boot my machine all of my bios settings are not only erased, they are set to the lowest settings. I figure its a safety measure but I don't know wat the problem is. It's really annoying though.
Overall Review: This is part of my first build, I overclocked it but I guess I need more cooling because I'll leave it running some tests all day and by the time I get home...lo and behold..it's frozen.
