Pros: So I already own the previous verion of a V8 CPU heat sync and fan. The new model is close to actually being 1 1/2 wider than the previous V8! The reason for this is because the new model has 2 fans instead of just 1. Once I got it installed I checked my CPU temp and when it's idle it's sitting at a 5c! In this model the other change is that you can see red lights shining out from inside the dual fans at pretty much every angle.
Other Thoughts: My only gripe isn't about the fan. I just hated that I had to take out my mobo from my case just to put this fan on. But after that it was all smooth sailing :) After you see it you'll realized that it was worth the $100.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: I switched out two 8800gs that were SLI together for one of these cards and my 460 works great. I haven't seen any lag time on any of my games when set to "high". This card has provided me great bang for my buck!

Pros: HUGE. Plenty of space to put fans. I do love all the options available for cable management. I naturally filled every spot with fans on my system. Everything runs ice cold. Nice big window for viewing components. Great price for such a big case. For months I was oggling the Corsair 800D that my friend has. Then I saw this case and checked everyday on online for someone to start selling. I prefer the black case personally. The inside looks gorgeous.
Cons: I will say it's annoying that the front and top panels can just pop off when you pick up this heavy beast. Moving the case around takes alot of effort, especially when you start loading everything into it just becomes a boat anchor quickly. Normally this wouldn't be that big a deal but with the weight behind it the case cases the plastic pieces to act all crazy. So pretty much it's a contest when moving it around to keep all the pop off panels in place. Adjusting the top vent could have been made differently so you don't have to put so much effort into getting it open and close. It does collect fingerprints badly on the outside. But after you clean it up it should be fine. I wish the outside of the case was made of similar materials as the Corsair 800D.
Other Thoughts: Price is way cheaper than the Corsair 800D. The dimensions are close to the size of that case. The cooling options in this case are alot better as well. If you prefer to use fans for cooling use this case. If you're a water cooling system only type of person you could go with this case or the Corsair 800D. This inside design looks nice. The outside design while has some unpractical aspects it visually looks nice. I would just say initially loading everything into this case gets to be a pain just from the shear weight and the plastic panel issues, but once it's setup then everything works GREAT! I would still recommend this to any friend.READ FULL REVIEW
