Corsair Graphite Series 600T CC600TM Graphite Grey Mid-Tower Gaming Case

4 out of 5 eggs Great, but... weak front/top mic and headphone female socket design 07/11/2014

This review is from: Corsair Graphite Series 600T CC600TM Graphite Grey Mid-Tower Gaming Case

Pros: Big, with wonderful design features particularity the wire routing and the ease of adding cooling to the CPU without having to remove the motherboard first, the number and size of the fan openings, and the ease of adding hardware generally

Cons: The front 3.5 mm headphone and mic jacks are flimsy and the slightest pressure from the male plug will shift the base of the female socket inside the case from the position it must be to work.. Admittedly, the first time this happened I did move the headphone cord and put some though not much pressure on the socket. Corsair support is excellent and they sent me another front/top unit. This time I was meticulously careful to remove the headphone jack from the female socket every time I quit using the headphones. The same thing happened with only the amount of pressure that the headphone cord produced. as it hung off the female socket which is angled slightly down and forward from the vertical. Likewise

Other Thoughts: Corsair Support is excellent, and the video which I watched before swapping out the defective front/top panel unit was thorough going and helpful, however, the tiny plastic fins which must be disengaged before removing the front and back panels to do the job are also flimsy and despite extreme care prone some were broken. They are so flimsy that I have been reluctant to recontact Corsair support to get a third front/top unit to put it in with the attendant potential for rendering the means of securely refastening the front and back panels unusable.

1 out of 5 eggs 10/18/2013

This review is from: AVG Anti-Virus 2014 - 3 PCs

Pros: None

Cons: Impossible to uninstall. It came with a suite of programs I never installed and which google to a number of obviously bogus sites. I'm going to back up my data to Crash Plan and re-install Win 7 OS on both the laptop and Desktop. It showed up on my work computer with no shared media such as a USB. The only sharing was Google Mail accessed on both work and home computers and Ever Note. Insidious

Other Thoughts: They should have paid me to try it.

Pros: quality playback
runs at low temp
only 1 graphix glitch so far

Cons: when its been running for a day or more you might experience a small grafix glitch where tiny cubes cover your screen this harms the card in no way
just restart give it an hour to cool and it will be fine.

Other Thoughts: dont let the small run time problem stop you this card is fast and moast MB love it
