DEEPCOOL TESSERACT SW Mid Tower Computer Case with Side Window and 2 Blue LED Fans SGCC+PLASTIC+RUBBER COATING
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: 1 week to 1 month

Pros: Cheap
Comes with 2 fans
Mostly toolless drive bays (2.5 still need a screw or two)
Lots of fan mounts

Cons: Front is a little bit difficult to remove
Can't reattach expansion slot covers
Only has space for 1 fan in the front
Doesn't come with extra fan screws
Tight fit. You would need to spend a lot of time with cable management or buy a bunch of right angle cables. You most likely will need to force the back side panel in.
First PCIE space seems long, but it will still have trouble with cards similar to it's size. A 305mm 390 Nitro needs a lot of delicate twisting to get in the case. It mounts fine in the end, but the 310mm spec doesn't factor in the hinges for the case panel.

Other Thoughts: It's slightly different from the images/videos. The one I got has an updated outer 3.5 bay, where there's a small cutout inside the removable 5.25 cover.

The front mesh really can't push a lot of air through. I could hardly tell I was blowing air from the other side. It's mostly going to get air from the bottom where it's wide open and doesn't have any sort of mesh. You can technically remove the mesh and have it wide open and still have the front casing intact.

Top and bottom mesh are sturdy. Might have a hard time cleaning them out. Top mounted mesh goes in the inside of the case, so you will probably end up getting more dust in the case trying to clean it/remove it. Bottom mesh goes outside of the case. Probably better to move the top mesh to the side panel since your cpu fan will draw in lots of dust from the side.

AOC Q2778VQE Black 27
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: more than 1 year

Pros: Looks good.
No dead pixels.

Cons: Might be dying soon. It's starting to pop up weird monitor graphical effects after a little over a year of use. For example:
Where the menu/startup logo would be in, it will show up a weird box in the middle of the screen in different colors. Sometime red, sometimes green.
Other times, it will show a weird gel/glue like box that spans the entire screen.
These visual errors only show up during games. Afaik, gpu errors wouldn't do these. The games I'm playing isn't particularly demanding on the gpu. They look more like where the lcd is attached is manifesting itself thru the monitor.
I haven't noticed these problems during video playback and I usually watch a couple of hours a day at fullscreen.

Other Thoughts: It's generally on around 16 hours a day. It has no vents from what I can tell, but it generally receives colder than ambient air blowing on it from another source. The back isn't hot, and the lcd generally is the only warm part. So I'm not sure if it's an overheating issue.

I'm kinda hesitant to issue an rma since it's a 27" screen. It will be too expensive to get them to check it when it's not fully broken yet. I suppose it still has 2 years to go before the warranty expires.

G.SKILL Ripjaws X Series 8GB (2 x 4GB) 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM DDR3 1600 (PC3 12800) Desktop Memory Model F3-12800CL9D-8GBXL
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: more than 1 year

Pros: Low profile enough to fit with my 212 evo on z75 pro3 motherboard.
Works with z75 pro3 motherboard. I had 2x8gb stick of working Team ram, and the board didn't like it, but this one boots fine.

Cons: They're not 8gb sticks.

Other Thoughts: I've bought a pair 3 years ago. And bought another this year. The new ones were labeled for last month July 2016, but are completely compatible with each other.
