RAIDMAX Troy ITX-121B Black Steel / Plastic Mini-ITX Tower Computer Case
  • Owned For: 1 day to 1 week

5 out of 5 eggs Awesome PORTABLE case 04/22/2015

This review is from: RAIDMAX Troy ITX-121B Black Steel / Plastic Mini-ITX Tower Computer Case

Pros: First I'll start with the build I put into this case because I know that's the first thing people are going to think... "will such and such part fit in this cast"
I'm running:
mitx motherboard (obviously)
8 gbs ram
gtx 780 windforce edition
1 tb rotational drive
1 256gb solidstate
650w seasonic non-modular atx powersupply
intel i5 devils canyon (cooled with an H80i)

This case was really fun to work with once you get the inside cage out. There is one side that collapses on the motherboard IO panel that once it's unclipped you can remove the cage unhindered. Plenty of room for any full size graphics card. Had to read the manual to figure out where they wanted to put the rotational drive (under the graphics card of all places)
The hotswap bays do not come with a power cord or sata pre attached remember to connect them on the bottom of the cage.

Now on to everyone's big worry.

I used a full size 650w seasonic atx powersupply on this build, non modular. There are two positions to mount the powersupply, Flipped (air pulled from inside the case) and standard (air pulled from outside the cage. I went with the first option which put my cables toward the top of the case, well away from my ram sticks. Getting all the cables of a non modular powersupply to behave was a bit of an endeavor but not impossible.

So yes, get a modular powersupply, yes a full size will fit without interfering with ram.

Very quite case, handle is sturdy enough. Exterior is all plastic, while the inside cage is steel. I've owned lots of coolermaster cases, antec, corsair, and this is by far my favorite.

If your looking for a smaller build, consider this as your buy.

Cons: The inside lock for the key mechanism should have been metal instead of plastic.

Other Thoughts: To sum this case up, it's like raidmax took their best engineer and gave him the cheapest materials and said make a Rembrandt

Very happy with the case.

MEElectronics AF-52 Bluetooth Over-Ear Headphone
  • Owned For: 1 day to 1 week

5 out of 5 eggs Get them if they go on sale 04/22/2015

This review is from: MEElectronics AF-52 Bluetooth Over-Ear Headphone

Pros: Comfort- I've owned DT770 pros, K701's, and quite a few other headphones. While these are not the most comfortable ones I've ever worn. They're still pretty nice. They don't put any pressure on my ears or the top of my head and their fit is similar to logitech G930 if you've owned a pair of those, the build quality is around the same as the G930 as well. I can easily wear these headphones for around six hours before my ears start to feel warm. Very happy owner.

Sound- The sound is astonishingly good for bluetooth headphones, I used samsungs adapt sound to measure how flat their graph was and I was pleased with the result. While these will not rattle your head with bass, you can still tell it's there. Very warm and pronounced. The bass is a bit round but I still enjoy it very much. Mids and highs are exactly where you'd want them to be.
Battery life- I haven't delved into just how long they'll last without a charge because I rely on them for work. That being said I can work all day and not need to charge them... when I'm not wearing them I just hook up the microusb cable and let them juice up.

Cons: DO NOT USE WITH THE BUILT IN MIC!

when I tested out the mic that's built in with these I lost the quality sound these produce, and the mic's pretty poor itself. Interestingly enough when you choose to not use the mic as your input device on your pc the audio goes back to being pretty incredible.

Other Thoughts: $119 is too steep for these headphones, I pick up my pair open box for $50. I did have to open up the headphones and solder a disconnected wire in the right speaker. But if you know what your doing it was painless and simple.
