SHARKOON VG5-W Red Steel / Plastic ATX Mid Tower Gaming PC Case, 3x120mm LED Cooling Fan Pre-Installed, 2xUSB3.0, Max: 15.16
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: 1 week to 1 month

Pros: Pros are it is a sturdy case, easy to work in and I did not find any sharp edges that's a plus.
Nice looking case, the side window is nice I just wish they would stop tinting them, clear is much better for see through, which is
why you get a windowed case to begin with.
Plenty of space for 3 ssds or laptop sata drives or a mix. Also, 3x3.5 inch hard drives.
The red motherboard mounting area lets your MB stand out, and cable management is easy enough in this case.

Cons: Now for cons which to this point I have only 1 major so 4 stars, the included fans are not worth a flip, at least they are free with the case.
But, they do not last long at all the rear fan went out within a week, so I have replaced all of them with some purple led corsair
120mm fans.
Other con is the front fans are skinny and the corsair fans or thicker so the included long screws did not work, luckily I had some short screws that came with my cpu water cooler that worked but you need a skinny screwdriver to pass through the first hole on the fans to reach the small screws to attach to case, so I recommend replacing the fans when you can but try to go skinny on the fans so you can use the long screws or get other screws and do it like I did.

Other Thoughts: All in all though the case is great and great looking, they just need better quality fans.
Grab one the case is still superb, just replace the fans and you will be happy.

Silicon Power Slim S55 2.5
  • eggxpert iconEggXpert

Pros: To start I have to say I am very impressed with this Silicon Power S55 240gb SSD. Runs pretty much to its specified speeds.
Sata 3 6gb/s connection on a motherboard that supports it, will give you the full potential of this drive.
I have a Sandisk 240gb plus SSD drive that I compared this to, and this SP S55 performs faster hands down, I benchmarked both drives and on the sandisk ssd got a below average performance rating, The Silicon S55 ssd scored above average performance rating. Both were benched on the exact same system with the OS cloned to both ssd drives so the test environment was exactly the same.
The test system I used is, AMD A8-7600 quad core cpu, Asrock A88m-g/3.1 motherboard FM2+, 16gbs Team Dark 2400mhz DDR3 dual channel kit, corsair ax1200i modular power supply, and xfx R7 370 video card pcie 3.0, running windows 10 pro 64-bit.
Here are the test reults of the SP S55 240gb SSD.

I would like to have one of the 960gb size SP ssd drives but price is just a bit much, but for a fast booting and snappy system this 240gb S55 ssd fits the bill and budget for boot drive with a 1tb sata 3 7200 rpm HDD for storage and programs.

Cons: The only cons I have is it needs the little spacer included for installing in laptops, and some cloning software which they in clude in the upgrade kit, but not with this single drive by itself.

Other Thoughts: All in all this SP S55 240gb SSD performs very well and if you are on a budget but want a fast SSD then this is the drive for you don't be scared off just because Silicon power isn't a well known name brand, this drive will impress you with its speed.
I recommend this SSD for any use its fast and so far very reliable.
Pick one up you won't be disappointed.

5 out of 5 eggs Nice water cooling 06/11/2016

This review is from: LEPA LPWAC120-HF AquaChanger 120 Liquid CPU Cooler 120mm

Pros: What can i say it does a good job for me, i run it on an A8-7600 quad core kaveri and under load it keeps it at around 40 - 45 degrees celcius works great idle temps about 33 degrees celcius.

Cons: no cons so far works well.

Other Thoughts: setup can be a little difficult but managable if you have a helper its very easy. i recommend and the red led matched my setup perfect.
