Phanteks PH-ES515P_BK Black Steel / Plastic ATX Mid Tower Enthoo Pro M ATX Chassis

4 out of 5 eggs Great but also confusing 10/16/2016

This review is from: Phanteks PH-ES515P_BK Black Steel / Plastic ATX Mid Tower Enthoo Pro M ATX Chassis

Pros: 1. Awesome cable routing
2. Great layout for hard drives
3. Separate bay for PSU

Cons: 1. Loose PCI brackets
2. Front panel buttons are good quality however why they couldn't route the wiring differently is beyond me. It's in the perfect place to get caught in your front-top fan if you don't use a grill.
3. Side panels are hard to get on and off, inspection of them reveals why. First the holes for the screws are to small. Second they have wiggle room so any cabling pushes them out and off alignment. Heck they don't align well anyways unless I'm applying pressure to the side where he screw goes.

Other Thoughts: The slots the brackets slide into are to big and allow for movement, way touch in my opinion. What ends up happening is any PCI card you put into your motherboard has wiggle room in that slot and you can literally move it. Over time I think this would be risky and may allow for damage. Say you have your giant GPU and go to plug in a cable, well it actually moves inward because the bracket slot has to much room. Sure it's a few mm or so but you're bending that bracket every time you push on it! this flaw is absurd in my opinion. I bought some Scotch clear removable adhesive squares cut them to fit at the end of the brackets to prevent this issue. Only 2 stacked are needed to prevent slot movement.

SAPPHIRE NITRO Radeon RX 460 100409NT-4GOCL 4GB 128-Bit GDDR5 PCI Express 3.0 x8 HDCP Ready Video Card
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: 1 day to 1 week

Pros: 1. 4 GB of RAM
2. Fast fans, upwards of 3000 RPM on full speed
3. Cool illuminated logo

Cons: 1. Coil whine

Other Thoughts: Everything about this card seems great, fortunately I decided to try a few tests. Running games with 2x MSAA at 1080p produced noticeable coil whine, as did load screens in various games. If by some chance my PSU contributed to this I'm listing it here - EVGA 750 GQ. I ended up sending it back for a refund and have yet to receive my new and different card.

Enermax Magma Advance UCMAA8 80mm Case fan with 3 speed modes

4 out of 5 eggs Great style seems somewhat noisy 10/04/2016

This review is from: Enermax Magma Advance UCMAA8 80mm Case fan with 3 speed modes

Pros: 1. Love the color
2. 3 speed modes
3. Excellent grommets

Cons: 1. They do make some noise, though it's not noticeable from a distance.

Other Thoughts: I must say I really like these fans and they're cheap. The addition of a 3 speed switch is truly brilliant and I commend them for that. I had 2 begin making to much noise recently that were from last May. It was not super loud but annoying. I think they lasted well really for what they cost.
