Pros: I think this thing could survive a fall from the roof and suffer only cosmetic damage. Definitely a man's tower case. The black, military appearance will cause your wife to say, "That thing isn't going in the living room!"
Cons: 1. I've built every computer I've owned...perhaps 10 or 12. I couldn't take much advantage of the cable management routing. Several cables were barely able to reach the mainboard sockets. The large GTX-780 video card doesn't help matters.
2. The spiffy little 3.5 trays seem like a good idea, until you start cramming in 4 drives. And with no way to access the opposite end of the bays, you're stuck with either plugging the cables to the drive and THEN sliding them in, or trying to cable them to the front. Each time I tried sliding one it, one of the side-locking pins would fall out. It got so bad, I tossed all of the trays and stacked the drives into the empty space.
Other Thoughts: The "manual" was worthless. You're left figuring out some stuff on your own.READ FULL REVIEW
This review is from: Thermaltake CLW0217 Water 2.0 Extreme/All-In-One Liquid Cooling System
Pros: Silent as the grave. I thought it was broken when I first turned on the machine. It sits inside the CM Haf Full Tower, on an Asus Crosshair V Formula Z MB.
Cons: Even the longer fasteners were too short. I had a lot of trouble getting the first threads of each to grab on. As such, there's a slight wobble on the pump. I may have to go to a hardware store and find some longer bolts and compatible nuts.
Other Thoughts: The software says it can't detect any fans.READ FULL REVIEW
