Cooler Master Cosmos II - Ultra Tower Computer Case with Metal Body and Hinged Side Panels
  • Owned For: more than 1 year

Pros: This case has room for 13, 3.5" hard drives plus 3, 5.25" bays. Eleven of the drives are tool-less mountable or you have the option to add a screw on each side of the drives and 2 are slide in from the front. Be careful as some drives can bind as one reviewer broke his case. room for up to 11 fans, more if you get creative.
This is just a great case, buy it!

Cons: an extra inch above the motherboard would have been nice for thicker radiators or push fans and an extra inch in length for easy hose routing

Other Thoughts: I used every inch of this case with a 360 radiator on top, 13 hd's a dvd, usb panel, and a 140 rad mounted on the back of the case.

  • Owned For: 1 month to 1 year

Pros: If you have been putting off a SSD upgrade its time to jump in and do it! The prices are good right now and the performance is outstanding. Not only do you get superfast boots you also get longer battery life in your laptops. Boot time was 12 seconds with windows 7 64bit with office installed

Cons: none

Other Thoughts: this was put in a friends laptop along with a memory upgrade, he saved $$ and says its better then a new laptop

ASRock Fatal1ty H97 Killer LGA 1150 Intel H97 HDMI SATA 6Gb/s Intel Motherboard
  • eggxpert iconEggXpert
  • Owned For: 1 day to 1 week

Pros: I was surprised on how easy this was to setup. I tried windows 7 and it installed without problems, probably because it is a very simple board. My Asrock X79 Extreme 11 required several attempts before a stable trouble free install. the disk also has many apps on it maybe too many for most people. Bios was a little picky about some changes but the only reason I know this is because I read the previous review. I had set up my bios before install and had no concerns. According to manufacturer this is normal. I was curious why a new motherboard with thunderbolt has old pci slots? There is plenty of software on the disk that comes with it including some interesting cloud software that many will like if they don't already have a cloud account. the board itself looks to be well made and looks nice with the red heat sinks, I didn't have any next gen ssd's to try out the M.2 socket but this will be a definite plus promising twice the speed. booting was fast and stable but I don't have much installed yet.

Cons: Pci slots? why how many people buy anything in pci format today? The pci slots should be replaced with PCIe slots. Pci is an outdated form factor like ISA slots of the 70's. Could use more SATA ports

Other Thoughts: This is a good product for a dedicated gaming machine or a work station but I would buy something with more SATA ports
