Pros: Huge area to work in! Great build! Lots of fan room!, 1x front stock (can add 2x more in the front if buy 2 extra drive bay modules) , 1x back exhaust, 4 on side panel and 1x in top blowhole. Can take off door, can switch door to open left or right! Removable mobo tray!!! Aluminum!
Cons: They mention that 9 fans fit in the case which lead you to believe you can put 9 fans in out of the box. You can only have 1 fan in the front "out of the box". You have to spend extra and buy 2 more drive modules from CoolerMaster to have a total of 3 intake fans. So I was slightly dissapointed upon learning that once I received and opened the case. I had ordered 7 fans (comes with 2) and now Im going to have to refund 2 of them because I do not want to spend more money on the drive modules, already spent alot on this case. This isnt a huge con but I figured it was worth mentioning since this is not mentioned anywhere. I still highly recommend the case, it would just be nice if they would mention room for 7 fans stock, 9 total with extra purchase.
Overall Review: This case rocks! Hopefully the drive bay modules are cheap from CM. I'd like to add another intake fan.
Lives up to the hype!
Pros: No scratched side window. Amazing cable management. Clean Interior with nice removable dust filters. Velcro ties and awesome accessory box with lots of screws. Cool SSD mount and includes a PSU shroud. Thick rubber grommets. Sleek looks, amazing price. Screws everywhere means almost every part can be removed and modded. Many more pros.
Cons: I have no complaints at all about this case.
Overall Review: I love how everything is easily removable just with screws. I removed the bottom HDD drive since I didn't need it which allowed even more airflow from the front fan. I think they fixed the scratched side window issue as the box containing everything inside was fasted with 2 twisty ties. It was awesome to work in this case and my cable management was super easy. The 3.5 HDD mounting mechanisms and drive cage were perfect. I also used 1 optical drive and the optical drive brackets were great as well. I also installed a SSD using the included bracket, that was a nice tough. I was impressed by the Velcro ties as they were good quality. The included fans are good quality. Okay, this review is getting long but this case lives up to hype, cable management was awesome and this case comes with everything you need. This is the new standard for 99$ cases. I am eager to see if any other manufacturers can design a case that outpunches this one at this price point.
Pros: Great value. Decent performance for the price, loads Windows and games really fast.
Cons: Not as fast as the 256/512gb version.
Overall Review: I installed Windows 8.1 on this SSD and the OS loads in about 5 seconds now and games load super fast. I am satisfied with the performance of this drive based on the price I paid.
Well built modular SLI ready PSU is a great choice!
Pros: Modular, Active PFC, ATX12V 2.2. Length of cords is great and will fit a tower. Lots of amps (69A!!!!) on three 12v rails. SLI Ready with 2 PCI-E cables (none of that lame 1 pci-e cable and 1 adapter junk) with enough amps for each. Every single cable (modular and non modular) is sheathed with tight black mesh with heatshrink on the ends. The cables look nice and bend easily. Big 120mm fan that moves a lot of air quietly, you can tell that this unit is well built. Full honeycomb vents on the back to let it breathe. LOTS of extra modular cables.* Overall this Antec 550 SLI ready PSU is a great value and deserving of your hard earned cash! *I will list the type/quantity of each cable in "Other thoughts"*
Cons: Only 1 year warranty
Overall Review: I am using this PSU for a 8800GT SLI setup and it works as advertised. 1 day delivery from NJ warehouse for FREE using the free 3 day shipping! 2 x modular cable (aka MC) with 3 SATA power plugs on each. 1 x MC with 6 pin secondary PCI-E plug. 1 x MC with 3x molex power and 1 floppy power plug. 1 x MC with 3x molex power plugs. Connected to the PSU are 4 cables. A main PCI-E 6+2 power cable, a 8pin CPU cable, a seperate 4 pin CPU cable and finally the main 20+4 power plug.
