This review is from: Fractal Design Core 1000 Black MATX Mini Tower Computer Case
Pros: Great case for only $36.00! Can't get this quality usually at this price. Doesn't have flimsy sides like you would expect, It's Fractual Design and yes they add their white back plates> Looks great for my clients and for any Professional environment and has USB 3 and 2 in front panel. I threw an ASUS B85 1150 board for this build and worked out great! Again, PRICE, PRICE, PRICE :)
Cons: Okay, Feractual I know the price was good, but the screws for the chasis to ecure mobo was horrible in quality! Not the same as you use in $70+ cases. Not a con folks, just use better ones, not the ones that come with. You can, but their horrible!
Other Thoughts: I was able to place a SSD & HDD in this. Since I placed a Samsung EVO which doesn't come with bracket I worried I might need one. Nope! You can make it work without one right from the box so don't worry :) If your on a budget build this is your best choice in the $30-$40 range. You won't be sorry. I went with 2 and look great in a office!READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: This PSU is great for the price, especially if you got with rebate and on sale! Newegg shipped extremely fast and was well pleased with that!
Cons: Okay, 1st if you plan to go with this, don't, unless you plan to place only 1 HARD DRIVE or BUY Molex to S-ATA adapters! Put in a Fractal Design Core 1000 FD-CA-CORE-1000 matx, and installed SDD & HDD.
Well when I connected the module S-ATA Cables they could ONLY REACH 1 Drive. Boo Corsair. These drives were very close to one another and this should be address to whom ever decided the S-ATA cable length distance from one another on the cable. Very poor design for all the cables, but managed to add adapters to the molex connectors (Only Option), Corsair your customers should NOT have to buy an adapter to have 2 hdd or like my situation sdd to hdd. Ridiculous!
Further more I seriously doubt you can get in 2 media drives close enough to work with S-ATA. The 2 x S-ATA connectors that are one each cable should have 3 to correct this poor design as well as longer distances between each connecter. Folks you only get two S-ATA, both same,. You have a choice to add 1xmolex connecter as I suggested with adapters and 1 S-ATA cable. That's it for this moduler PSU. Keep in mind when building!
Other Thoughts: Corsair, Before you respond, consider the fact you should send me adapters or better longer module S-ATA cables....REALLY!READ FULL REVIEW
This review is from: ASUS B85M-G LGA 1150 Intel B85 HDMI SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 Micro ATX Intel Motherboard
Pros: Great budget board with many features. Came with HDMI, DVI & VGA connectors onboard. Many internal connectors to accommodate most users. Easy to install!
Cons: Bad onboard video. Works 50% of time then goes to permanent sleep almost immediately. If your planning on using this board I would suggest buying a video card. I could not resolve the issue and I don't care to waste my time calling ASUS. Since I am using a graphics card, this is not a major issue, because it solved the issue immediately. ASUS should fix this issue as most may want to use the onboard with these new Haswell processor from Intel.
Other Thoughts: Not much more to say. Since a gpu was placed on the pci-e 3.0, it works as it should. Take my advice or RMA this one. I would go for a better chipset than this one, but a budget build is a budget build. I took off two eggs and should have knocked off 3, but an easy fix...who really uses onboard video anyways ;)READ FULL REVIEW
