Pros: Easy to install, ran great until.....(see cons below)
Cons: it overheated and shutdown. I check Catalyst temperature monitor and it was coming down, but it was still 87C. And that was after the computer rebooted so it had a few secs to cool down. Another time I checked whie playing a game and it was over 90C. I took the side of the case off and had to put a floor fan there.
Pros: Great cooling...especially the exhaust fan. Plenty of room to work. Tooless mounting for optical drives. Looks GREAT. TONS of extra parts....no need to worry about dropping a screw. Even includes a polishing cloth.
Cons: HD cage blocks flow from intake fan. The cage has slots for 4 HDs, but if you use SATA, the cage blocks the power connection on the bottom slot. I am still confused about the front "wings"...what is their purpose?
Overall Review: Over all, I really like this case. The HD cage keeps this from getting a 5-star rating. But still a great case...considering buying another for my other computer.
Pros: When it wasn't locking-up my system, it ran great.
Cons: Frequent lock-ups. Gave me error messages saying it was in an infinite loop. Updated my drivers, but it still locked up. I then went to message boards and found out this is a common problem with this card. So, IMO....avoid this card.
