Pros: Front USB 3.0, full size PSU, small size, no optical drive opening, price.
Other Thoughts: This is a great case for a mini itx build. I wanted to keep this a budget build and the price and ability to use a full size PSU really helped. This case is actually fairly roomy for being so small, lot of options for cable management and multiple anchor points.
Like another reviewer mentioned you are able to route the 24 pin cable around the front of the case, under the fan. This frees up the area between the fan and motherboard, really increasing airflow.
I didn't bother with the 80mm fans but the case is staying very cool with the 120mm fan and a GELID Solutions CC-Shero cpu cooler. Idle temps of 26C and load of 42C on an Intel i5-4430.
I don't own an optical drive, I don't want an optical drive and it was really nice to find a case that didn't have an opening for one.
Pros: USB 3.0 header, 3 monitor support, great UEFI, price.
Other Thoughts: Building a budget mini itx I was still looking for several things in a motherboard. USB 3.0 header, 3 monitor support, 4 SATA 6GB/s, reasonable price.
So far this motherboard has been perfect, I had 0 issues with the assembly. Booted up first time with no problem.
The UEFI is very nice, well laid out and easy to navigate. The fast boot coupled with a SSD is amazing, boots to desktop very quickly.
I coupled this with a Intel i5-4430 for the HD 4600 graphics capability, running two 20" monitors and my HD TV without problem.
Pros: Price, shipping, refresh rate, no dead pixels.
Other Thoughts: Got this on sale for $89.99, shipping was very fast. Monitor has really good color and refresh rate. Hard to beat at this price.READ FULL REVIEW
