This review is from: DIYPC D480-BK-Window Black SPCC ATX Mid Tower Computer Case
Pros: Just about everything. It's very well built and I've bought cases costing twice as much that weren't as nice. Nice powder coating, A EATX motherboard does fit. the case is sturdy, and you can actually mount AIO coolers in the front, top or rear. That's something that a certain maker of AIO's can't say about many of their own cases.
Cons: The Built in fan controller uses MOLEX! Who uses molex connectors anymore? I also wish the 3-1/2 bay used threaded fasteners and not riveted. If your using a modular or semi modular PSU as I did, you'll have to connect all the wires you'll need to it before bolting it in.
Other Thoughts: I've seen complaints about the "Paint" scratching during a build in this case. Maybe it's just me but I don't assemble a new PC with a butchers knife and a chain saw.READ FULL REVIEW
This review is from: AMD FX-8300 Vishera 8-Core 3.3 GHz Socket AM3+ 95W FD8300WMHKBOX Desktop Processor
Pros: Runs much cooler with a H80i Than my 8320 with a H80i and overclocks higher than my 8320 at stock voltage. Mine runs at 20x without a increase in core voltage.
Cons: Box cooler might work alright on a dual core sempron. Leave it in the box.
Other Thoughts: Wish I would got another one instead of my 8320.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: Works great for older games and apps that need a 256 bit card. I use mine for personal video encoding on a modest system.
Cons: Had to send 1 back
Other Thoughts: Bought 3 of these. 2 for crossfire, and one for another machine. The third one had issues with the memory and I had to underclock it to 1225. I returned it and got the replacement. Same thing, but this time I decided to run VMT (Video Memtest) after running that one full cycle, which takes over 2hrs, it is now fine at default speeds. The Problem disappeared. SO I guess it just needed to be heated up. New memory of any kind sometimes needs to be stressed. The card is working perfectly now and I'm pleased.READ FULL REVIEW
