This review is from: Antec Nine Hundred Black Steel ATX Mid Tower Computer Case with Upgraded USB 3.0
Pros: Very very very very nice cooling. You can control the fans with a little variable controler hooked to each fan. On all low settings, the fans are virtually silent. With the fans on high, they are still pretty quiet, and pump TONS AND TONS of air through the case. I had just a Rosewill case before this, and I had overheating issues. With this case, it dropped my temps 10 Celcius, just by buying this case. That is awesome. The 200mm fan ontop is awesomely HUGE! And also very slient I might add. I can hear my northbrige chip fan over my whole case fans. You can add a 120mm on the side if you would like. It has a moutning bracket built onto the side panel already.
Cons: Case panel came broken. I called newegg and they manufacturer sent me panels at no cost. The second set of panels came bent..but whatever I guess. I bent them back well enough to where I could put them on so they were flush. When I first recieved them, they wouldnt even latch because they were so crooked. Also, it is kind of flimsy, pretty stirdy, but definitely not as sturday as they get.
Other Thoughts: I would recommend this case. I just build my brother a system and I used this case for his build also. You can re-arrange the fans in the front if you would like. Overall, a decently nice caseREAD FULL REVIEW
Pros: Looks AWESOME to begin with, and is also very fast. I have 4 gigs in my XFX 680i motherboard. BIOS read all 4 gigs right off the bat. Couldnt have asked for more

This review is from: XFX MB-N680-ISH9 LGA 775 NVIDIA nForce 680i SLI ATX Intel Motherboard
Pros: I did not buy this product from newegg, but I bought it used on e bay. I was a little skeptical about buying this board at first, because of the reviews, but I am very, very happy I purchased this board. Everything you can think of is just great about this thing, it overclocks like a champ, it has 3 PCI X16 slots, supports plenty of RAM...and so on. No problems whatsoever. I have read reviews where people can only get the C2D E6750 up to 3.2 ghz. On this board, I had that cpu at 3.86ghz, stable with just a slight increase in voltage. I "un overclocked" it because I am waiting for my water cooling system to help cool it down al ittle. Overall, BUY this board if you are hesitant...you will not regret it.
Cons: The North Bridge fan is a little LOUD! It's not THAT bad, but I can hear it over everything else in an Antec 900 case. You NEED this fan if you plan on overclocking at all. That north bridge gets extremely hot.
Other Thoughts: My system specs: 20" widescreen Acer, XFX 680i mobo, BFG 8800GTS 640mb, 4gb Crucial Ballistix RAM, Antec 900, CD/DVD burner, COOLIT Eliminator TEC cooling, 700watt OCZ gaming PSU, 200gb Seagate 7200RPM HDREAD FULL REVIEW
