Most Favorable Review

Worth every dollar.

Corsair Certified CW-9060007-WW Hydro Series H60  Water Cooler
Corsair Certified CW-9060007-WW Hydro Series H60 Water Cooler

Pros: -> Very cheap for liquid cooling. -> Corsair is an extremely reliable name. -> Installation isn't any more complicated than an air cooler. -> Less maintenance, noise than an air cooler. -> Still a one year warranty on a refurb.

Cons: - > None at the moment!

Overall Review: -> Tubing is a tad stiff. It's not really anything anyone will have a problem with, I'm just very meticulous when it comes to cable management, and my inability to flex it a certain way was a mild annoyance.

Most Critical Review

Not a fan of this fan

Thermaltake CL-F016-PL20BU-A 200 mm Blue LED Pure Series Quiet High Airflow Case Fan
Thermaltake CL-F016-PL20BU-A 200 mm Blue LED Pure Series Quiet High Airflow Case Fan

Pros: -> Cost friendly. -> LED's are pretty good for the price.

Cons: -> Didn't come with screw for mounting. I was rather certain these were supposed to come with their own screws, as the ones required are somewhat unique. As such, I've not been able to use this product, and I'm rather disappointed.

Overall Review: Obviously this has my rating at a lonely 1 egg as the product arrived unusable.

As advertised

Pros: Case does what it promises. Sturdy. Simple. Effective.

Cons: Instructions aren't very clear. Pictures being black and white means that it's hard to tell which bars are meant to be in what direction your first time. Nothing major, but a tad annoying.

Overall Review: Unless you're running a crazy number of cards or anticipate major heat issues, this case is great and will do exactly what you need it to.

DRAM issue seems common for this board.

Pros: Effective features for the price.

Cons: Apparently you get what you pay for. Board is DOA and I'm increasingly discovering my issue is far from an isolated incident.

Overall Review: Board arrived DOA. DRAM error from the start. Verified my RAM is functional, seated it in every slot. Reseated all other components. The only thing not functional is the board itself. Now I need to find another solution for my business PC, send this part back, wait, etc. Quite disappointing. If the seller wants to send me a functional product, I'll consider editing my review. Otherwise, 0/5 eggs, would not recommend.

Pleasantly surprised.

NZXT Phantom PHAN-001WT White Steel / Plastic Enthusiast ATX Full Tower Computer Case
NZXT Phantom PHAN-001WT White Steel / Plastic Enthusiast ATX Full Tower Computer Case

Pros: -> Significantly more spacious than it looks to be - and it already looks to be rather roomy. Specifically when it comes to cable management, I was very, very impressed with how much room I had to maneuver in this case. -> Comes with 4 pre-installed fans, all of which are LED's to boot. Two come already plugged into the cases fan controller, which is also quite nice. -> If you're not into LED's, there's a simple button on the back to disable the lighting. -> Does look really nice when lit up. -> Rubber stoppers on the bottom, holding up the PSU to reduce sound via vibrations. -> Otherwise has all the other gratuities you'd expect of a full sized tower, including allowing for proper air flow, easily removable doors, a frankly alarming amount of drive bays, etc.

Cons: -> My case arrived with a small bend in one of the corners of one of the door. It's actually rather difficult to see because the case is white, but it's there. If not for this, I would have certainly given this case a 5 egg, without question.

Overall Review: -> This was my first venture into a brand that isn't Corsair, Thermaltake or Cooler Master for a case. I was extremely impressed by the case, inside and out, and would highly recommend NZXT in the future, considering.

Good value.

Corsair Air Series AF140 140mm Quiet Edition High Airflow Case Fan Single Pack(CO-9050009-WW)
Corsair Air Series AF140 140mm Quiet Edition High Airflow Case Fan Single Pack(CO-9050009-WW)

Pros: -> The red loop is interchangeable with a blue or white one, for people with a colour theme. -> Seems to work as desired.

Cons: -> I get a slight noise from the vibrations when the fan is cranked to max. When set to approximately 80% it's dead silent. I can live with that.

Overall Review: -> Seeing a consistent problem amongst the comments about the rubber in the fans, and the screws. Can't say I've had the problem myself.
