Fractal Design Core 1500 Black Compact MATX Mini Tower Computer Case
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: 1 month to 1 year

3 out of 5 eggs Good concept, but still some flaws. 05/29/2016

This review is from: Fractal Design Core 1500 Black Compact MATX Mini Tower Computer Case

Pros: Good cooling with plenty of fan slots, fan controller. Modern look.

Cons: Fan controller failed and the wiring to one of my fans MELTED! I will NOT be asking for a replacement fan controller, I wouldn't trust the fragile wiring used. It comes apart too easily! A few of the wires detached from the controller. The connector is too weak! Power and reset buttons are noisy. Bottom 120mm fan cannot be installed unless you remove the lower hard drive cage. They should have made this case a few millimeters longer so you wouldn't have to remove that cage. Also, you can't install a regular 140mm or 120mm fan on the top by the 5.25'' bays if you have something installed in the top bay, you have to use a slim fan (20mm thick or thinner). I use both bays, so I managed to barely fit a 120x20mm fan in there.

Other Thoughts: No hard drive mounting screws were included with my case, but I contacted Fractal Design and they were able to ship me the screws. Good job with that.

ECS KAM1-I (V1.0) AM1 SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 HDMI Mini ITX AMD Motherboard

Pros: Good price, works fine. Audio is clear and loud - impressive! Why can't more expensive boards have good sound? This board's audio has better sound than most so called "high end" boards!

Cons: No Windows XP support, VGA Port *WAY* too close to USB 3.0 ports. I can't use the USB 3.0 ports because I'm using the VGA port and the cable gets in the way.

Other Thoughts: Well, I needed a cheap ITX combo and got this with a Sempron 3850. It works okay for internet, audio playback and low definition video.

EVGA GeForce GT 740 Superclocked DirectX 12 (feature level 11_0) 04G-P4-2744-KR 4GB 128-Bit DDR3 PCI Express 3.0 Video Card
  • neweggOwned For: 1 week to 1 month

Pros: *True Single Slot Design
*Good Temps
*High Core Speed
*Large 4GB Memory Buffer

Cons: *Memory Bandwidth is so low it's almost embarrassing.

Other Thoughts: It's a few bucks more than the 2GB version. This is noticeably faster than the 1GB Geforce GT 640 I upgraded from, despite having slower memory. It's not much of a difference, but it's there. You can play most modern DX11 Games on Medium settings @1080p with playable frame rates. Just remember that this card by design is pretty crippled when it comes to memory bandwidth.
