LIAN LI PC-V358B Black Aluminum Computer Case
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 week to 1 month

4 out of 5 eggs Update to previous glowing review 01/26/2014

This review is from: LIAN LI PC-V358B Black Aluminum Computer Case

Pros: I still love this case, but there is room for improvement.

Cons: When the cover of the case swings open, there is considerable force placed on the internal USB3 port connector. This resulted in the first broken MB connector pins that I can recall ever happening to me (bent yes, but never broken off).
Extreme care needs to be taken to disconnect the USB3 cable from the MB BEFORE completely opening the case cover.
Perhaps Lian-Li should include/develop some type of 20pin quick connect adapter and include it with the case? Otherwise a longer USB3 chassis cable should be used by Lian-Li instead, because this is a very common location for internal USB ports.

ASUS A88XM-PLUS/CSM FM2+ / FM2 AMD A88X (Bolton D4) HDMI SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 Micro ATX AMD Motherboard
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 day to 1 week

Pros: Worked out of the box with Kaveri APU!
Easy to setup with minimal tweaking
Great options in UEFI for quicker booting

Cons: Would have preferred that the PCIe 16x slot and 1x slot not be next to one another and had the 16x and PCI slot there for more optimal configurations - who uses PCI anymore? :/
Pins for the internal USB3 ports broke after several insertions. Still allows for 1 USB port to work, but I've never had pins break before - bend, yes, but never break.
Memory Overclocking and Memory button are a joke. I wasted so much time pressing the Mem button to auto config and could never past reach POST. Ended up just leaving my APU and Memory without overclocking.

Other Thoughts: Also, would have loved a DisplayPort on the board like they have with their ATX Pro boards. Why do vendors not include DP when it's free to license?! I would happily pay another $5 for this feature.
This board has been out a while and with my luck they will replace it soon with one that I like more. ;)

4 out of 5 eggs Seamless Installation, Fast Performance 01/16/2014

This review is from: NETGEAR AC600 Dual Band Wi-Fi USB Mini Adapter -  (A6100)

Pros: Installed in seconds. Windows 8.1 installed the drivers instantly and sync'd my wireless settings from my other pc.
This isn't the fastest wifi adapter, but it is great for the money.

Cons: none
