Pros: -The design is nice and it keeps everything simple -having one connection for the fans frees up space for more fans -it hasn't even gone all out yet, I may have to just do a extreme test to see what it can do -the hose covers look great and have enough length for any situation -I can't believe the little fan actually helps -very quiet. My video cards make more noise on high than this does
Cons: -for some I think being able to control where the little fan blows would be nice because every board isn't the same -it needs options for RGB. I know a lot of people don't like RGB but having the option for the ones that do would have been nice. -for having such a thick radiator I would like to see more RPMs from the fans. I know it would make it louder but 2200+ RPM should have been the minimum for the the max speed.
Overall Review: Yest take this product and be amazed. The only thing you have to worry about is that it is super thiccc so plan accordingly or make sure you have the space for it. Also be sure you look for if it will fit your 2011-3 because I got lucky and it worked for me but it said that it works only for the square shaped one I believe.
Pros: None I never got to use it
Cons: Where to begin. I am writing this from my phone yes my phone because this board was dead on arrival. This is my second MSI board and very frustrated with this one. First off the board wasn't even shipped inside the static wrapping. So I give this thing a shot debug panel stays at FF and doesn't post nothing zip nada. I call MSI and am told that it's a CPU issue and I have to replace. Well I am not a computer parts store so guess what I have to buy a processor which I did and take a wild guess that's right that didn't work $170 gone. Going to RMA this 1st thing in the morning very frustrated and mad heard so many good things about it and even liked MSI (notice the past tense) but this left a bad taste in my mouth. Not only did this dead board cost me time money and effort but is costing me a 2 letter grade drop because my paper is stuck on my harddrive and this thing was supposed to work 2 (technically 3) days ago when the deadline of my extension was up.
Overall Review: I inspected the board when i took it out of the box and all I could do was shake my head at the site of it being out of the static wrapping. I have no clue what is wrong I ended up getting all new components just to make sure that it was the motherboard because both times I called they said they couldn't do anything and I had to try everything on my own. Well money spend and still nothing in the monitor. If this doesn't get solved never again will I buy anything from MSI or even recommend anyone to get anything.
YAY no more thermal paste
Pros: -exact fit for my i7 6850k -easy install -temps are as cool as can be -really makes swapping cpus easy especially if testing or installing a bios for your cpu or whatever you need.
Cons: I can't think of anything
Overall Review: Yup I would highly recommend this. I bought a second one that I could use for my other systems and even let my family know about it. I am not sure about the negative reviews but mine is working like a charm I am glad I took the chance to find out about this myself
This beautiful tower
Pros: -all the space you will need -really makes your set up stand out -the ability to sync the lights to your motherboard -plenty of airflow and gives it to the video cards also -has dust filters for everywhere a fan might be -very sleek and eye catching -comes with instructions to help with the setup
Cons: -needs rubber grommets for all possible fans installed. -if running your cpu cooler on the side be aware that some cables may hinder placement -would be great if the option to stand the video card horizontal was available. -There is a spot of empty space where the exhaust fan would be. It would be great if they had their own custom fans in that spot with a sata adapter to run off the psu or motherboard. -some of the screws were funky and took many attempts to get them back in place -it didn't come with fan screws
Overall Review: Without a doubt I would recommend this to anyone but I would keep quiet about it so I can ooh and awe the crowd. I made one mistake and got the white version when I really wanted the black. The cons are very minor and plain nitpicky but honesty is what makes the product better. This tower is so nice I can't help but glance down at it being all sexy and stuff. One addition would be to get the RGB light in the front to trace the top along the tempered glass sections. You know RGB is in for a lot of people.
Such a wonderful item BUT.......
Pros: Durable, extra thick wiring, small connections to fit more if needed. Picture quality is great, no extra connections and worked right out of the box but.....
Cons: UGH it came to this..... With all the pros you can list there is a problem. While gaming and watching any stream the screen(s) it will freeze and then catch up. I am assuming too much data is trying to get through. For the wires to be as big as they are I can't understand the freezing part. It is very annoying because it is so random and could be costly in a game. I thought I could get rid of the adapters i had but that doesn't seem to be the case. The HDMI part is long maybe a inch and a half long so take that into consideration if you have a limited space hookup (I didn't knock off a egg for this).
Overall Review: I am on the fence about recommending this because of the screen freezes after some time I realize that it isn't just during gaming that it happens. It also happens regardless of gaming, watching streaming videos, youtube etc. Connected the old adapters and no issues
