Most Critical Review

The rebate is a pain

OCZ Reaper HPC Edition 4GB (2 x 2GB) DDR2 800 (PC2 6400) Dual Channel Kit Desktop Memory Model OCZ2RPR800C44GK
OCZ Reaper HPC Edition 4GB (2 x 2GB) DDR2 800 (PC2 6400) Dual Channel Kit Desktop Memory Model OCZ2RPR800C44GK

Pros: The memory works.

Cons: They make you work hard for the rebate. You need to log into OCZ site, figure out part number and offer numbers and enter all of your info. Then you still need to mail them stuff and wait for the rebate - a lot of work for $10. It is very tall. Make sure the airspace above your memory slots is free. I have a small case and these modules wouldn't have fit in two of the slots.

Easy to install. Faster than spinning drive.

Pros: It fits in a short window. I think my window was only 9" tall and this fan fit. It is quiet and blows pretty hard.

Cons: No problems

Pros: Drives go in and out easily. Most of the drivebays have these little pushpin gizmos to hold drives so you don't need to use screws.

Cons: I replaced the fan with a quieter one.

Overall Review: Nice case. nice price. easy to put together.
