SilverStone PS08B Black High-strength plastic and meshed front panel MicroATX Mid Tower Computer Case
  • Owned For: 1 day to 1 week

Pros: Decently-solid construction
One of the few cases that have two USB 3.0 front ports at this price point.
Easily removable front mesh fan cover and dust filter
Good value for $40

Cons: Power and Reset buttons are in a strange spot.
HDD activity light is overpowerd by the insanely bright power light.
Stock fan in the front is very loud. Restricted airflow due to filter and mesh makes it even louder.
Difficult to mount a hard drive when motherboard is installed. I would suggest installing the motherboard first without CPU heatsink or RAM as these were the two components that tog in the way when installing the Hard Drive.
Knockout PCI covers are just lame....
Oily smudges show up easily on the exterior when handling.

Other Thoughts: For those complaining about lack of 2.5" SSD mounting options... just use one screw... anywhere... thats all it needs.

ASRock H97M Anniversary LGA 1150 Intel H97 HDMI SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 Micro ATX Intel Motherboard
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 day to 1 week

Pros: POSTs and boots extremely fast. Everything works. NO problems found.

Great price for what you get
- USB 3.0 header
- 6 SATA ports
- 3 display connections
- 4 RAM slots

Cons: Only 1 fan header (besides CPU fan header)
Lots of flex on the VGA connection when plugging in
24 pin was nearly impossible to connect / disconnect; extremely tight.
No Intel NIC - it uses a realtek

Other Thoughts: Wish it had a 4th PCI slot

Great value overall. Highly recommended.

GIGABYTE GV-N730D3-1GI GeForce GT 730 1GB 64-Bit DDR3 PCI Express 2.0 Video Card
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 day to 1 week

Pros: No PCIE power connector required
Supports 3 displays
Higher performance that Intel's integrated GPU
Quiet fan

Cons: This is a single slot card, but the heatsink/ fan assembly takes up 1.5 slots blocking the lower PCI lane. I used this in a Micro ATX build and it limits my ability to install another card beneath it.

Other Thoughts: Didn't perform any benchmarks to share, sorry.
By no means is this a gaming card. It's meant for lower powered systems that might need some graphics horsepower for professional use.
