This review is from: Corsair Obsidian Series 650D (CC650DW-1) Black Aluminum / Steel ATX Mid Tower Case
Pros: Would be a great design if it had better Quality Control.
Cons: Cheep parts on inside.
Other Thoughts: I replaced my Antec 900, one of my two Antec cases (1200 and 900) with this case, and will not make that mistake again with my 1200. Both of the 200mm fans made horrific noises before they died and the docking port on the front never did work. For the price point of this case I expected much better quality. I have owned this case since 11/2012. I have owned both of my Antec cases since 2009 and have had no problems with either of them. Will avoid Corsair in the future, was going to upgrade my PSU and RAM next also, I guess its back to the drawing board.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: ??????My apologies this is a typo, as what I had meant to say was 2 SSD's.
Cons: Sata III does not work any faster than the Sata II ports. The whole reason I bought this board was to compliment my 2 SSD's. I had to put them in raid 0 to get 450 reads. I should be getting over a 1gig reads in raid 0.
Other Thoughts: Not sure how that could be your response, knowing that it is a issue with this board.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: USB 3.0, SLI, Debug LED, 24 GIG ram, everything BUT the sata III falsely advertised (by EVGA) to do something that it does not. Now I know EVGA does not make the Sata ports, controllers or drivers but that is no excuse you make the board and put your name on it. Test it make sure it works and if not fine just do not put in the description that it is something it is not. And hey maybe try a different sata III configuration, don't tell anyone but there are some that work.
Cons: Sata III does not work any faster than the Sata II ports. The whole reason I bought this board was to compliment my 3 SSD's. I had to put them in raid 0 to get 450 reads. I should be getting over a 1gig reads in raid 0. This is unacceptable to me, why advertise 6gps when clearly it is not. Was this not tested before it was launched.
Other Thoughts: I do not know what else to say.... I am not happy with this purchase, no fault of Newegg though.
