Pros: This case replaced a Lian-Li HTPC case that I had I needed to go with something shorter than what I had for a new TV stand. Comparing this to the Lian-Li both are exceptional cases. The Lian-Li gets the edge on layout and aesthetics while I would give the Fractal case the edge on build quality. The Fractal case I did not have any stripped out screw holes as I did with the Lian-Li out of the box. Also thought it was nice that the Fractal case has a noise cancelling coating on the underside of the case top cover. Makes the HTPC really quiet.
Cons: Compared to the Lian-Li I feel like the hard drive trays are a little flimsy. The drives are suspended next to each other and while in the frames they can wiggle and bump against each other when putting in or removing them from the case.
Other Thoughts: Overall this is a great case with a wonderful design. I would recommend this case to someone looking to build an HTPC.READ FULL REVIEW
This review is from: ZALMAN CNPS8900 Quiet 110mm Ultra Quiet Slim CPU Cooler
Pros: I have no doubt in this things ability to keep my A10-5800K cool. I had an Arctic Pro cooler that more than did the job but I needed to switch to a low profile case. This thing is huge with that said it is low profile enough to fit in my case. Installation was a little tricky it does require a little more work than some of the other brand of coolers on the market. That said it is more than capable of cooling my cpu this is being used in a Fractal HTPC case and it is quiet.
Cons: Before ordering I would definitely look over the size and double check your motherboard to make sure it will work for your needs.
Other Thoughts: Overall I am very happy with my purchase it is definitely a high quality product capable of meeting most peoples cooling needs.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: I purchased just about every brand of wireless routers and so far Engenius has been as rock solid as they come. This unit has been up for a week and I have had no issues what so ever out of it. The wireless N works great and I am getting full bars both upstairs and downstairs for a 3500 sq ft home.
Cons: The wireless AC on this is unusable. If you are setting right in front of it then you can get a signal. If you are more than 15-20 feet away nothing. Luckily I didn't buy it for the wireless AC I wanted to replace my old Engenius wireless N router with one that had gigabit ports. I tested the wireless AC with my Samsung Galaxy S4 it was fast when it worked. I have the newest firmware installed at the time of this review.
Other Thoughts: Overall if you are looking for a great wireless N router with gigabit ports then this will work great. If you are looking for wireless AC I would stay clear of this one.READ FULL REVIEW
