Very Good Cooling
Pros: VERY good cooling. Im running about 28Celcius @ 4.2ghz. Fits in very nice with my color scheme and impresses friends through my side window!
Cons: I had to take everything out because I couldn't fit my hand behind the phantek cooler to plug in the 8-pin cpu power.
Overall Review: I seriously recommend plugging in the 8pin power first before you stick it in your case! I couldn't fit my hand behind it and had to take everything out :/ Sucks but that was my fault not the coolers so im not docking a egg. P.S. For all the people complaining about the ram not fitting under it. Whos fault is that? Do some research before you blow 90$ on an amazing cooler then put a bad review just because you didn't do research.
Pros: Seriously amazing! Best case I have owned yet. I thought the white led would look dumb but they look amazing! Cable management in this case was super easy and actually fun! It was EXTREMELY easy to install my SSD and HDD and there is great airflow love this case and will use it for years!
Cons: Wish fan controller had better control. :(
Overall Review: This case does fit with the phantek cooler! The top exhaust fan comes a little close but it does fit! ~All compatible~ Corsair Special Edition White Graphite Series 600T Phanteks PH-TC14PE 140mm UFB (Updraft Floating Balance) CPU Cooler CORSAIR Vengeance 16GB (4 x 4GB) 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM DDR3 1600 (PC3 12800) Desktop Memory Model CML16GX3M4A1600C9 ~~~~~~~~~~~
Pros: Very good processor this is a no brainer and runs cool. With my phantek cooler @ 4.2 I run 28deggres Celsius. Very fast runs everything I throw at it and all around better!
Cons: None Yet
Overall Review: For people researching and looking at the 2500 don't listen to the people that say 20$ less is better. The k part means it is overclockable and a unlocked processor im sure most of you know about it but just thought I would throw that out there the 2500 is locked and the 2500k is overclockable.
Pros: Seriously great ram. I thought the low profile wouldnt look good man was I wrong it looks really sleek and fit under my phantek cooler! It is cheap and 16gigs of ram will beat anything you throw at it!
Overall Review: If your at 1333 go into bios and turn on XMP it will kick it up to 1600.
Pros: Very fast compared to my HDD. I boot up my computer within 6 to 10 seconds and straight to the desktop. Just magnificent speed and totally worth it.
Cons: Price, due to ssd pricing you cant really get a very large one but this will probably change in the future.
Overall Review: You seriously need to get a 128gig or higher if you want a ssd for your operating system. A fresh installation of windows 7 on my new build came out at 80gigs! So that means getting a 64gig you wont even be able to use your operating system! So do some research before you make a decision!
