I love this case quite a bit.
Pros: This is an amazing mid-tower. When I opened it up, I said "Wooo, there's so much room for activities!" It fits my standard ATX motherboard, AIO cooler and graphics card comfortably. I also love how the HHDs/SSDs fit snugly attached to the specified locations within the case. This makes some cable managing...more manageable. There is plenty of room underneath and behind the case to manage the cables and configure them as you please. There is also a ton of room to add a custom water loop if you do so choose. ***If you do plan to use an AIO in a push/pull method, I recommend only using a 120 radiator, otherwise you will have to attach it to the front and be pulling the hot air in and having a couple fans to push the hot out the back/top/bottom. This is all personal preference though.***
Cons: I keep smudging the inside of the glass and it drives me nuts, but that's my own personal issue. I wish there were 2 slots on the top of the case so I would be able to fit a 240 radiator to the top.
Overall Review: ***I highly recommend taking out the small magnetic screen that is attached to the inside of the front panel of the case. I know this is to stop dust from entering, but it also highly restricts air flow. The amount of dust that it catches is miniscule to the amount of air that it restricts. If you take it off, you're golden.***
I mean, for the price and being at 144Hz, they're pretty good.
Pros: -144Hz. -1ms. -Very stable base. -Clear image. -Slim sleek design. -My games look absolutely gorgeous on this monitor while running at high/ultra settings.
Cons: -I gave this 4 stars because it does not have a display port......why? You give the option for vga...but not dp....genius. -Adjusting the color settings is kind of a pain. -Unless your GPU has dual DVI ports, you will only have one monitor showing at 144Hz (If you run less than 1 monitor, you are weird.)
Overall Review: I do recommend getting this monitor while it is on sale (which happens often).
What a little beast of an AIO
Pros: The compact size of this AIO is one of wonders. This lets you retrofit this little guy into some pretty snug places and manage the cables easily. I was very surprised with how well this thing cools down my CPU. I have this sitting over an i7 8700K and I don't think I have seen the temps raise higher than 46C under full load for streaming. A lot of people complain about the pump being too loud on this AIO. The only time I have ever heard this pump is the initial start up right out of the box to purge the air within the tubes, other than that, it is the silent killer. Quiet and kills that heat. Many complain about the fan for this AIO. I did plug in the fan and notice that is was kind of meh for what it was. The only reason that I did test the fan was to see if these claims were true. I already had plans to replace it with my own set that I bought specifically for my build.
Cons: I recommend to replace the fan that it comes with, it's kind of meh.
Overall Review: This was first ever AIO and I have not been disappointed in the slightest. I liked it so much that I bought the 240 version as well just to have as a backup just incase an anomaly happened with this one.
SO fast, so pretty!
Pros: Enabled XMP in my bios and clocked these up to the respective 3600Hz that it claims. I was very surprised to see how easy it was to clock these and run with it. They are super awesome and the lights are amazing looking. Did I mention these things were FAST?
Cons: Is a con not buying 4 sticks? If it is, then that's my con, I need 2 more sticks.
Overall Review: There is plenty of RAM on the market, so you get to pick and choose what you want. What I liked about G.Skill is that I settled for the 3000Hz RAM, within 2 weeks the 3600 went on sale for the same price and they were kind enough to let me exchange for the better ones. So good on them for honoring that. Also, this RAM is Aura Sync compatible with my 370 motherboard. I can customize the lights and they look sweet.
Best SSHD on the market.
Pros: I have had a few of these over the years and these have done nothing but continue to be awesome. I have one in my laptop and gave one to my fiancé. They boot up games super fast and are very stable. Super trusting of Seagate and this line of SSHDs.
Cons: Idk, I guess a con would be that it doesn't come in a 10TB container so I can store all the things?
Overall Review: Buy it, you know you want to.
