DIYPC Skyline-07-B Black SECC ATX Full Tower USB3.0 Gaming Computer Case w/ 7 x 120mm Blue Fans

4 out of 5 eggs Good features, mediocre design 09/28/2016

This review is from: DIYPC Skyline-07-B Black SECC ATX Full Tower USB3.0 Gaming Computer Case w/ 7 x 120mm Blue Fans

Pros: Top mount hot-swap HD connection (SATA) - pretty unique.
Fan controls on the top (Hi/Lo/off).
Positively insane number of fans.

Cons: Full length hard drives will NOT FIT - the case is not wide enough.

Other Thoughts: I like the design, weight, features all that - I have yet to power it on so I'll reserve any comments about the fan noise for later.

Unfortunately the case has a great big huge deal breaking flaw: The quick mount hardware for internal drives wastes over 1" just for the quick connection, and they're inset from the left panel by an inch or so. Which means that if you want to use full length hard drives they're going to be seated all the way to the rear of the bay - meaning that, if you are using standard SATA power connections you WILL NOT BE ABLE TO PUT THE RIGHT SIDE PANEL BACK ON unless you torque the cables severely (or you happen to have a set of 90-degree SATA power cables handy, which no power supply comes with so you'll have to special order them).
Honestly, if the build was not time-sensitive I would be sending this case back for something else (the former case is a Rosewill Thor I would've used, but it's still in operation), the top-mount HD connection is not THAT important. Oh, yes, there are no protective caps for those connectors when they're not in use.

Suggestion to the manufacturer: I note that the HDD bays are molded with fan mounting in mind - a good idea would be to add standard HD screw holes as well, so I can attach the HD to the underside of the rack so that it'll be closer to the left side and my power cables will work without having to order a set of 90 degree connections.

EVGA SuperClocked 02G-P4-2662-KR G-SYNC Support GeForce GTX 660 2GB 192-bit GDDR5 PCI Express 3.0 x16 HDCP Ready SLI Support Video Card
  • neweggOwned For: 1 month to 1 year

Pros: Compared to what?

Cons: Video card drivers crash constantly... they 'reboot', but any applications DON'T.
My other comp runs a pair of 460s or whatever they are... older cards. NO crashes, under twice the load.

This 660 is a [censored] pure and simple.

Genius GX-Gaming Gila Black 12 Buttons 1 x Wheel USB Wired 8200 dpi MMO/RTS Professional Gaming Mouse
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: 1 month to 1 year

Pros: Plenty.

Cons: 2 buttons on far right are not intuitive in placement, left & right secondary buttons require abandoning common L/R finger placement which is rather distracting in game.

Primary Con - this the only mouse I've ever had that began double-clicking with every single click after 8 months. I find no way to get into the case to clear possible debris (pet hair, typically) or otherwise determine if the fault is native to the device - a failed part - or from a secondary source. Drivers have not updated in quite some time.

Other Thoughts: I would definitely recommend this mouse for those who find the button placement comfortable for them. It's nice under the hand, moves well, has nicely positive clickback on all buttons.
