Pros: -4GB RAM with an amazing 512bit bus
Cons: -Price to performance ratio doesn't feel worth it
-AMD control panel and drivers are second if not third class
Other Thoughts: I upgraded to this from a GTX 660Ti and in all honesty, I was not blown away by the performance increase. Yes, it was noticeable, but not to the extent I thought a $500 card would get me.
I get around 50fps on BF4 ultra @ 1440p
-Quality Components (including Japanese Capacitors)
-Heavy / Solid Build
-Fan only comes on at certain power usage point
-Semi Modular (You don't NEED full modular, your motherboard has to be powered somehow)
-Platinum Energy Rating
Cons: -A little expensive, but you get what you pay for
-Just a rebranding
Other Thoughts: Bought this guy on the famous website known for free 2 day shipping and named after a certain south american river...
In the end, this unit is a real under dog and has gotten a bad rep because AZZA rebranded some really terrible PSUs before this new line, but these new ones are top quality units from the Super Flower Design. I am not one to follow the crowd and just get a corsair unit, I chose to give the under dog, and am very glad I did!

Pros: I upgraded to this case after using an NZXT Phantom for two years, and I am so glad! The rotated motherboard configuration really does work, 7-10C cooler than in my Phantom (which had the extra fans installed). The case is also considerably quieter than the Phantom, I was expecting the "Air Penetrator" fans to be much louder, but they are very quiet.
I didn't read about this but one of the HDD slots has a pre-wired power and sata connection build in, so you can literally "plug and play". I really hope in the future, they allow the option to have every drive cage like this.
Overall building my system with this case was really enjoyable, and I took all day installing my components slowly. The system looks edgy yet sleek, has great metal build quality, is quiet, and you can tell the engineers really took their time in designing this case.
9.75/10 would happily buy again!
Cons: Ideally it would be great to have one more fan pulling air out of the top, but as it stands the case is amazing.
