PC Power & Cooling ModXStream Pro Series 600 Watt 80+ Semi-Modular Active PFC Performance Grade ATX PC Power Supply (OCZ600MXSP)
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: 1 week to 1 month

Pros: Silent, modular PSU.

Cons: The 12V 8 pin power cable may be too short for use in popular cases with bottom mounted power supplies. I ended up having to get an extension cable to get the cord to reach the top of the motherboard.

Other Thoughts: I've had a great experience with OCZ customer service in the past when a previous 650W died on me after a few years while still under warranty. They sent me not one, but two replacement 700W PSU's (probably by mistake, but they still upgraded my unit upon return).

Logitech K400 2.4GHz Wireless Touch Keyboard
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: 1 week to 1 month

3 out of 5 eggs Good for HTPC 11/07/2013

This review is from: Logitech K400 2.4GHz Wireless Touch Keyboard

Pros: Affordable, compact keyboard for a wireless connection. Works with Logitech Unifying wireless receiver, so you can connect a proper Logitech wireless mouse with the same USB dongle.

Cons: The track pad click is very touchy and I ended up dragging files around accidently on a few occasions.

Other Thoughts: A good, cheap solution for when you absolutely must use a keyboard or mouse quickly on your HTPC. Not recommended for exclusive use.

SILVERSTONE Black Aluminum / Steel Grandia Series SST-GD08B ATX Media Center / HTPC Case
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: 1 week to 1 month

4 out of 5 eggs Excellent for old desktop to HTPC 11/07/2013

This review is from: SILVERSTONE Black Aluminum / Steel Grandia Series SST-GD08B ATX Media Center / HTPC Case

Pros: Perfect amount of space for a full ATX motherboard, large graphics card, and CPU fan. This case fit the guts of my old gaming PC without problem. It also supplies a good amount of airflow and allows for installation of additional case fans.

The design is slick and fits in well in a home theater environment.

Cons: Optical drive installation requires a lot of adjustment.

Other Thoughts: To get the optical drives ejecting properly, I suggest propping the hinges open while installing the removable drive rack. This will allow you to align the ejection mechanisms while actually seeing where it will make proper contact with the drive. You may also need to adjust these while the computer is on - attempting to open the drives with the buttons and using software to open them if that fails. I also had to shave a bit of plastic off of the bottom bay door with a razor blade since it was getting stuck on the case and keeping the bay from opening.

I was able to fit the following components:
ATX mobo
2 slot ,full size video card (Radeon HD 6950)
110mm Zalman 9700 CPU fan
2 Optical Drives

There is still room for additional hard drives, but a large graphics card takes up a lot of room in the drive area, so take that into consideration if you are planning on putting a ton of drives in it. The manual also suggests a card that vents towards the back of the case, which should help your air flow.
