This review is from: Antec Nine Hundred Black Steel ATX Mid Tower Computer Case with Upgraded USB 3.0
Pros: Looks nice and solidly built. USB 3.0 is nice to have right up front. Comes with 4 fans for plenty of airflow right out of the box with additional room for a side fan and (although, rather unnecessary) an internal fan. Just an all around rugged and solid case. Another very nice feature if you swap coolers or CPUs fairly often, they cut out the back behind the MB for easy access to the back side of CPU. A great feature because you don't have to remove the MB just to swap out your cooler.
Cons: A little limited inside on space (see other thought below). The optional interior fan housing is a bit in the way as well, limiting the internal size even further. A large graphics card will basically run from the back of the case to this fan housing and takes a bit of work to get the card around it. Cable running is a bit of a chore with only two very small holes in the back to access the back panel and they are so close to each other they hardly seem necessary at all. Due to this cable issue, the beautiful window they place on the side becomes more of an eyesore than a glorious display of your hardware. You can't hide the cables, so you can see everything hanging inside; not very pretty! (Get a modular power supply to cut down on this!)
Other Thoughts: All in all, a great case for utility, but leaves a bit to be desired in space and cable management. ATX board is pretty much exactly the size of the inside of the case, so if you like a little more room for cable runs and/or to just get your hands in there to work, you may want to look for something bigger. Lots of air flow but no cable management.READ FULL REVIEW
This review is from: Far Cry 3 PC Game
Pros: Great Graphics, Excellent adult story, Cool progression of abilities, Just an awesome game.
Cons: Uplay, Crafting/Hunting can be tedious, but I suppose that is a matter of taste.
Other Thoughts: I can't figure out the complaints some of these people have with this game. This is one of the best shooters I have played. The open world allows you to push the story or do your own thing with a lot of side quests to pursue as well. The story and characters are great and well voiced. Weapons are varied and accurate and stealth kills are just awesome.
Uplay is kind of a drag, but I had no problems as far as it interrupting my game or glitching things up. The crafting/hunting mechanism can be tedious and cause you some hassle but my next paragraph will explain how to remedy that. Graphical glitches like clipping and pop up are rare if you have the juice to run it, but that should go without saying (notice "SHOULD" but since that was a few of the complaints I saw, I thought it should be addressed).
I lucked out in the way I chose to play this game and did not realize it until my second play through. The best way to play is to do all your hunting/crafting first while unlocking towers in the process. This will open up a lot of the game and get you the best equipment before tackling the main missions. Try to avoid run and gunning the encampments as taking them out quietly yields more experience and is a lot more satisfying anyway. There are plenty of run and gun moments in the game anyway, so enjoy those stealthy sections and get the most out of them. On my second play through, I avoided the camps entirely until I unlocked a lot of the stealth kill perks (and the silenced sniper rifle to take out guy on the towers or occasional stragglers). Another thing I did not really use until my second play though is the multi stealth kills, but is definitely worth using and getting good at. Nothing beats sneaking up behind a bad guy at a camp fire, stabbing him from behind, then quickly stabbing his buddy sitting next to him and finally throwing the knife across the camp to kill the last guy at the edge of the base. Adrenaline rush, silent and PRICELESS!
