CASE ROSEWILL | FBM-05 Dual-Fan Micro ATX Mini Tower Computer Case-Retail

3 out of 5 eggs Best Cheap Case but Quality Problems 12/07/2015

This review is from: CASE ROSEWILL | FBM-05 Dual-Fan Micro ATX Mini Tower Computer Case-Retail

Pros: Attractive, professional appearance, not too plain or too exotic/ugly. Includes ONE front USB 3.0 port for motherboard USB 3.0 header. Two fans included. No problems mounting motherboard, DVDRW drive, 3.5 inch front bay, and SSD with 2.5 inch adapter.

Cons: My first case was damaged with a punctured hole in the box, denting the side panel. Not sure if a warehouse or shipping issue. Newegg replaced, but that arrived with a badly crooked soldered USB 2.0 port. Another replacement (3rd time) was good. Front cover removal is too tight and has a bad crack on back side. Not visible on front.

Other Thoughts: This has a LOT of potential as a cheap priced micro ATX mini case with good looks and features. I had much trouble getting a good one though, and great Newegg service is the only reason I did not ask for refund instead.

G.SKILL Ripjaws Series 4GB (2 x 2GB) 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM DDR3 1600 (PC3 12800) Desktop Memory Model F3-12800CL9D-4GBRL

Pros: Good, reliable brand in kit with heatsinks and nice-looking design.

Cons: Price per GB is not as reasonable as larger capacity memory kits. Also, contrary to one posted user review this kit does not work in older socket 775 DDR3 boards requiring double-sided modules.

Other Thoughts: I bought this kit ONLY because the review by Anonymous on 7/9/2011 at 11:21:21 pm stated it worked with Intel DP45SG motherboard. That review is wrong as I suspected. Docked one egg only for price per GB, but not the faulty reviewer.

5 out of 5 eggs Fast Economical CPU with a memory limitation 10/16/2015

This review is from: Intel Pentium G3250 Haswell Dual-Core 3.2GHz LGA 1150 53W Desktop ProcessorIntel HD Graphics BX80646G3250

Pros: Rates better Passmark score (3327) than Intel Core2 Quad Q6600 @ 2.40GHz (2988). Has extra 1MB cache compared to current Celeron CPUs. Not as costly as G34xx or Core i3 processors. A great value CPU.

Cons: Integrated memory controller of G32xx CPUs limit DDR3 1600 memory to slower 1333 speed. To get full DDR3 1600 speed requires a G34xx CPU or better. However still seems blazing fast for Windows 7 and office tasks using a Samsung 850 EVO SSD.

Other Thoughts: Stock fan is OK, but never liked the pushpin installation that seems a bit fragile. Operates well with an affordable Gigabyte GA-H81M-HD2 mainboard and 8GB of G.SKILL Ripjaws X Series DDR3 1600 RAM.
