Pros: Great air flow. Great layout for cables. I was able to run all of my power cables behind the main board.

Cons: None. Please note, this case is a bit taller than any other standard sized case I've owned. If your case sets under a desk or needs to fit somewhere, I'd check the height specifications first.

Overall Review: Used this with a Neo 550 psu. Worked great. No extensions required. Upgraded to this from a Sonata II. Took core temps down from 40 to 32 idle and 58 to 48 load (q6600 @ 3ghz). This is with the p182 fans at low which is barely audible. I highly recommend this case. I also highly recommend running your cables behind the motherboard so they are out of sight. This takes a bit more time but is well worth the effort.

Pros: Installation is fairly simple, just take your time. This thing is massive, you just don't comprehend it until you see it. Big, but looks good and it works.

Cons: None.

Overall Review: Cooling a q6600 (3x333) @ 3.0ghz. 35C idle. 58C load. Non-lapped with ARS5. Some boards will manage the fan speed incorrectly. I believe speedfan will correct this if it's a concern for you.

Pros: Great motherboard. Easy install. Tons of SATA and USB ports which is why I went with this over Asus.

Cons: None.

Overall Review: Two things to keep in mind. Old bootable cds which use the old driver (oakcdrom.sys) will not work going forward with most of the newer boards. They need to be rewritten to use the new driver gcdrom.sys. Not a big deal but it can be a hassle if you use that sort of thing (Ghost, PM etc). The other thing, if you plan on enabling AHCI for your SATA drives (enables ncq and a few other performace features) do some research on it first. Vista you will need to enable the AHCI service first, and XP is a little more involved than that. Try querying AHCI on wikipedia, you'll find what you need. If you do a fresh install, enable it beforehand and save yourself some trouble.

Pros: Fast, four cores, need you say more? OC's pretty easily even for a first timer like me.

Cons: None.

Overall Review: G0 received - ordered 12/13/07. This little puppy is warm. I've never purchased a 3rd party cooler before but did for this. My setup runs around 58C load @ 3x333 (3.0ghz).

Pros: Cheap. Quiet. Quick. BIG. Full format with 0 bad sectors.

Cons: I only own one.

Overall Review: Do yourself a favor and keep your drives cool. They don't need to be subthermal ... a simple fan will do. Heat kills. And of course, newegg rules.

Pros: Great look. Very well put together. Great PS. Tons of power. I had no problems whatsoever with the vent hood over the cpu. It fit perfectly with a 939 athlon 3700. VERY quiet. The exhaust fan actually comes with a switch so you can choose between performance, max, min etc .. based on your fan needs. I have mine set at the factory default and i can barely hear anything. The dust filter is a nice feature as well. Five stars.

Cons: None whatsoever.

Overall Review: Newegg I love you.
