Corsair Carbide Series 200R Black Steel / Plastic compact ATX Mid Tower Case

5 out of 5 eggs Understated, Simple, Cheap 12/01/2015

This review is from: Corsair Carbide Series 200R Black Steel / Plastic compact ATX Mid Tower Case

Pros: I used this case for a budget workstation build. Unlike all the gaudy gaming cases in this price range, it's simple, clean design makes it great in a professional environment.

The case fit two full sized graphics cards without issue, along with a 4 HDD internal RAID, 2 SSDs, and the rarely used optical drive. There are plenty of fan mounting and ventilation options.

Cons: In shipping it seems that a little bit of metal got bent, which causes the side panel to not quite line up on it's own. However, once the thumbscrews are tightened the side panel sits flush with the rest of the case. So not really a big con.

Other Thoughts: When rendering through Octane, and I would assume any other engine that requires heavy GPU use, the cards get throttled due to overheating. I don't really think that would be any different with any other case, I just need to do a better job of keeping them cool.

I have now bought this case twice, once for a workstation build for a job I had, and once for my personal build.

HP Smartbuy ZR2740w 27

Pros: I really like this monitor, great color, and overall image. Hi resolution makes all the difference when working on video and graphics.

Cons: It had a few groups of dead pixels near the edge of the screen. They only show up on really dark images, and the client never sees this monitor so I am going to live with it for now instead of dealing with the whole RMA game.

Other Thoughts: Good monitor I knew it had to be too good to be true for the price.

GIGABYTE GA-X58A-UD5 LGA 1366 Intel X58 SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 ATX Intel Motherboard

  • neweggOwned For: 1 week to 1 month

Pros: works great so far, right now I am just concerned with getting a stable system, haven't tried overclocking yet. I can say that the audio is good coming from the optical out. I haven't done any benchmarks with the sata rev. 3

Cons: I don't know if it is a problem with the heatsink(stock from intel) or the motherboard, but it won't connect on all four pins, I can only get three down.

Other Thoughts: Worked well with hackintosh, got everything up and running, although audio took a while. Apparently hackintoshing is easier with the ex58-ud5.
