4 out of 5 eggs Fine case for the money 05/15/2015

This review is from: DEEPCOOL TESSERACT WH Mid Tower Computer Case SPCC+PLASTIC

Pros: While the sheet metal on this case is definitely of the thin and lightweight variety, the overall fit and finish is quite good, especially at this price-point. The white finish on my mine is very nice; evenly applied, with no sags or overspray. The side panels actually fit properly, something I can't say about some cases at 2-1/2 times the cost of this one. Up to six 120mm fans can be mounted, although it's hard to imagine that being necessary. I didn't have any difficulty with cable management using two HDDs and an optical.

Cons: About the single biggest con with this case, (with mine anyway), is that there isn't any proper strain-relief on the front-panel cable harness. You do not want to stress these wires/cables during installation. And, be careful with them if you need to remove the front panel. The "punch-outs" on the rear panel provided for use with "old-skool" liquid cooling units could be inadvertently, and permanently, removed if the case isn't handled carefully. DEEPCOOL should re-engineer the front-panel wiring harness to provide a strain-relief, and save itself a manufacturing operation by eliminating the probably obsolescent openings for liquid-based coolers.

Other Thoughts: The included fan is very quiet. It should be, as it turns at about 900 RPM, and doesn't move a colossal amount of air. This might be just what you need, or, it might be not nearly enough. I had no issues installing drives using the supplied parts. Didn't encounter any sharp edges. Yeah, the twist-off expansion slot covers are a bit cheesy, but if this bothers anyone, please re-examine the price of this case. One can always nit-pick with an inexpensive case, but any shortcomings should be measured against the cost. If you're looking for a very decent, inexpensive case, and are a bit weary of the ocean of black boxes, (black is the new beige), this might be worth a look. I'd purchase it again.

AMD A4-7300 Richland Dual-Core 4.0GHz Socket FM2 65W Desktop Processor AD7300OKHLBOX

Pros: Inexpensive, yet a great performer. Runs cool, and as a result, very quietly. Very responsive graphic performance. Flawless HD playback.

Cons: Haven't discovered any... I suppose there is a chance one might receive a fan that isn't as quiet as it should be, but that didn't happen with mine.

Other Thoughts: I originally planned using this simply as a "placeholder" in my FM2+ system until I reviewed AMD's available APU lineup later this year. But, it has surprised me by being a much more solid performer than I imagined it would be. Now, I'm not nearly as inclined to replace it. If you are in the market for an A4/A6 APU, I'd give this one a close look. 3.8/4.0GHz base/turbo clocks, and HD 8470D graphics are very competitive with even the A6 "K" chips, but for two things: This APU isn't unlocked, and the memory controller is capped at DDR3-1600.

AMD Athlon II X2 260u Regor Dual-Core 1.8GHz Socket AM3 65W AD260USCK23GM Desktop Processor
  • Owned For: less than 1 day

Pros: See "Other thoughts."

Cons: See "Other thoughts."

Other Thoughts: With the "u" suffix, the "Total Design Power" (TDP) on this processor is only 25W, *not* the 65W stated in the specifications. If you require an extremely low-wattage CPU for an AM2+/AM3/AM3+ motherboard, this is as efficient as they get.
