COUGAR Solution Black Steel ATX Mid Tower Computer Case with 12cm COUGAR TURBINE HYPER-SPIN Bearing Silent Fan and USB 3.0
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: 1 day to 1 week

Pros: * Good cable routing space
* Easy to open and shut for maintenance
* Lots of airflow
* Cheap
* Roomy

Cons: * Unless you have aftermarket CPU / GPU coolers designed specifically for noise reduction it can get a little bit noisy under load. There is very little in the way of noise insulation
* The USB3 cable that attaches to the front panel appears to be all inclusive and non divisible, so unless you have a motherboard that has all the USB3 pins right next to one another [and you don't], the front panel cable is worthless. Seemed like a bit of an oversight so -1.

Other Thoughts: For the price on a scratch build it's hard to go wrong with this case. Would recommend it for a first timer. Would buy again.

CORSAIR XMS3 8GB (2 x 4GB) 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM DDR3 1600 (PC3 12800) Desktop Memory Model CMX8GX3M2B1600C9
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: more than 1 year

Pros: * Have used this memory in multiple different configurations of both home built and pre-built machines, have yet to run into a single problem with it

* Fast and reliable

* Competitively priced

Cons: I honestly can't think of any, though I haven't pushed this memory to its absolute limit... so there could feasibly be shortcomings that I'm not aware of when juicing it beyond its specification.

Other Thoughts: Need it to "just work?" This is the memory you want.

ABIT Fatal1ty FP-IN9 SLI LGA 775 NVIDIA nForce 650i SLI ATX Intel Motherboard

3 out of 5 eggs Nothing spectacular 08/25/2007

This review is from: ABIT Fatal1ty FP-IN9 SLI LGA 775 NVIDIA nForce 650i SLI ATX Intel Motherboard

Pros: Nifty red- overclocks decently at speeds up to 3.0Ghz [no success beyond that]. Egregious RAM support. Was pretty easy to install and update the BIOS.

Cons: No x16/x16 SLi support. It seems to be limited by the 650i chipset. I could not get any cards to run with full bandwidth. Just x8/x8- which is somewhat weak considering this is a 'high performance' board. Also has random POST hiccups- where the machine won't even post.

Other Thoughts: I think Im going to return it for the Asus board with the hybrid chipset for x16/x16 SLi support.
