This review is from: BYTECC Bracket-35225 2.5 Inch HDD/SSD Mounting Kit For 3.5" Drive Bay or Enclosure
Pros: Does exactly what it is supposed to do...it holds 2.5" hard drives. Yes, the bracket is made from plastic, but it is thick and not flimsy. Take a few minutes to closely align your mounting holes..you may need to move it forward or slightly farther back than you would think. Being plastic, you don't want to be removing and reinstalling the mounting screws too many times, remember, it's not metal..so the mounting holes could conceivably get stripped. The price is right and it works, what's not to like?
Cons: You have to think ( darn)
Other Thoughts: I'll be buying another when needed.READ FULL REVIEW
This review is from: LIAN LI PC-7B plus II Black Aluminum ATX Mid Tower Computer Case
Pros: Good solidly built case for Full ATX board. Definitely not fancy but fully functional. Does not feel as though the sides are going to get pushed in like some of the other inexpensive cases that I have used. Front panel pops off and on easily for Drive insertions and adjustments. Plenty of room for routing cables. Built in fans are well placed and create a good airflow through the case. room for additional fans should your build require the extra air.
Cons: It would be nice for the area that the motherboard is fastened to be detachable, but that would probably drive up the price.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: Good looking board, well made and sturdy. It matches my G.Skill Ripjaws. Add a couple of case fans with Red LEDs and it looks subtly cool..
Cons: None at the moment, but see other thoughts..
Other Thoughts: I read the review that stated that the install disc that comes with the board hosed their OS install...well they were right. I started with Windows 8 64 bit and then ran the install disc. Upon reboot selection, I selected update and restart...NO.. DO NOT DO THAT>>It sent me into a continuous loop of " Windows update failed to configure"..Darn.. Out comes the Windows OS disc and reinstall Windows 8 64 bit again, this time I unplugged the network cable and ran the Gigabyte install disc. I did not "reboot", I just shut it down. Push button and start it up and then hook up network cable and run Windows Update...all is now well. You can choose to believe or you can choose to reinstall your system.. :-)READ FULL REVIEW
