Pros: aesthetically pleasing, great air flow, easy cable management, ssd cage, plenty of fan mounts, great watercooling capabilities, easy maintenance.
Cons: a bit pricey(you can get full towers at this range), no fan filters beside the front, stock fans are a bit on the loud side, optical bay drive lock mechanism is iffy at best
Overall Review: one of the few cases I've come across that I truly love. I'm a sucker for air flow so the dual chamber setup is great. Though personally, I wish there was an extra 1-1.5 inch on the psu chamber so I could have recycled my old chassis' HDD cage, oh well.
Pros: powerful computer chip in terms of raw power. My chip is a fairly decent overclocker, 4.8ghz capable within very reasonable temps (tc14pe). could possible reach 4.9/5.0 if i ever decide to delid.
Cons: intel's TIM almost porked the potential of this chip greatly. Thank gosh for delidding- if not it would have been a serious hamper on this chip's reputation.
Pros: windforce cooler is very quiet and efficient. My card was a decent overclocker, combined with factory overclock=good clocks overall.
Cons: a tad on the long side, no backplate, pcie connectors that have the click/tactile feedback when plugging them in.
Overall Review: not much to say for graphic cards, usually all the same. Haven't had a issue with the card yet so I cant comment on Gigabyte's customer service either.
Pros: -bought it during a shellshocker, 4TB for $133 is pretty sweet -comes out to 3.63 after proper format -used as a simple storage hdd for about 3 months now in my high end rig and still kicking *knocks on wood*
Cons: -Newegg packaging for bare drives are pretty bad
Overall Review: a lot of reviewers who list a 5 tech knowledge level and don't know the GPT requirements for hard drives > 2TB should be ashamed of themselves.
