Pros: This is a case that Thor himself basks with his glory from on high. The case is huge...huge. It will have no trouble fitting anything. Fans are quiet, large, and keep my system quite cool. The red lighting is a plus.
Cons: Mjolnir not included
Pros: It's an SSD.
Cons: So, after ordering this to install my OS on, as life is, I got busy and didn't actually get to do it until a couple months later.
It was a total failure. The SSD sounds like a racecar getting ready for the race (lots of revving that is louder than my velociraptor HDD) and then my first installation of Win 7 fails. So I try again. Success, but then the updates break it. So I reinstall yet again and the updates break it again.
So needless to say, this drive is broken. Hope you have better luck.
Pros: It's an SSD, so it is extremely efficient, no noise from it, super super super super super super fast.
Cons: Too Small for Windows 7 Ultimate.
Overall Review: I purchased this with the intent of making it my boot drive. Worked well, but with the amounts of updates that Microsoft is putting out for Windows 7, this drive is 95% full already after only 1 month of use.
** RECOMMENDATION: DO NOT USE AS A BOOT DRIVE, IT IS TOO SMALL**
Pros: Absolute Beast. All of my games (War Thunder, Skyrim, Total War's, etc.) are running completely maxed out with 60 fps. Additionally, the card has excellent heatsinks and runs fairly cool for the power that's going through it. This is a graphics card well worth the money.
Overall Review: The card is large, so make sure your case is big enough.
Intel i7-4771 (3.9ghz)
Pros: This DVD drive worked the moment it was plugged in. So far I've burned 3 audio CD's in under 2 minutes.
Cons: Noisy...very. When warming up, the drive sounds like all the case fans on full. After about 10 or 20 seconds it dies off, but still very loud in the beginning.
Overall Review: It's a good drive for the price and speeds. But that noise...
Pros: Worked right off the bat, (an auto 3 star) and continues to work well. The drive is much slimmer than expected and runs cool and quiet.
Cons: None so far
Overall Review: Good hard drive for the price.
