This review is from: Fractal Design FD-CA-CORE-3500-BL Black Steel ATX Mid Tower Computer Case
Pros: Very nice,solid built case.Good metal,not flimsy.Cable management system is very good and helps you keep all the unwanted wires away.Built in fans giving decent airflow without bringing too much noise.Case is very roomy for any kind of set-up.Tons of options for your cooling solutions (that's why i bought non-windowed version-for additional fan on the door) you can install water cooling or 3-4 additional fans to the bottom,front panel or to the top.One feature i really love-the cut under the MB,right under the CPU socket-so if you are playing with custom CPU fans or cooling solutions you don't need to remove MB in order to change/remove mounting brackets.Case is also wide so my Cooler Master 212 EVO is not even close to the door,with nice cable management-the description is correct,it's essence of airflow,period.
Cons: HD audio cable ruins the whole cable management process. Cable is too short and in order to get it connected you will need to pull it across the case.USB 3.0 cable is too long (at least for my MB) and seems to be a bit loose.Case got a nice set of screws but no screws for additional fans (i got silver so they are not looking good on black body). 2 additional spots for the SSD are accessible only with MB out of the case.
Other Thoughts: Overall i will call it a very good case.The features you got for the price-are closer to high-end Full ATX towers.Case is very wide and roomy,with a lot of nice features,just need a little bit more love and design added.Make the audio cable longer and add some kind of SSD mounts to the back-and i can bet this would be a best seller.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: It's an update for me,and it holds solid 54 Mbs on my old ATT dsl modem/roouter which is on the other side of the house,behind 3 walls.
Cons: Doesn't drop the connection but if you watch it for a while you will find out that it's dropping packets,not very often but it does.Not good for on-line games.
Other Thoughts: It's worth the money for sure.I would suggest Realtek drivers instead of Rosewill.Realtek driver is newer and works with Windows 7/8/8.1 If you are trying to get better signal for home use-this adapter is your best bet.If you trying to keep solid redundant connection-look for something else.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: Good fan,i can use as second fan on my Cooler Master 212 EVO CPU fan.Bright beautiful blue LED lights.Quiet.
Cons: It's not that fast and not that efficient- ok as additional case fan,but i expect a little bit more from this fan.Doesn't make a decent airflow,just takes some fresh air in.
Other Thoughts: It's a good fan but i won't really recommend it as main case fan unit,it's quiet but it doesn't move a lot of air.Style and additional flow-yes.READ FULL REVIEW
