This review is from: Razer Naga Hex MOBA PC Gaming Mouse - Red
Pros: I love this mouse custom DPI, looks, feel, quality, it's weight, it has a braided cable which has become a must for me. I also like the synapse software. It's easy to use and it works soooo much better than Logitec's hack software which would frequently crash my pc.
Cons: The buttons on the side. I thought this would be a big improvement playing games like dota 2 and league but they're just not for me. This is completely my personal preference. Sometimes I will accidentally hit one of those buttons and drop a ward where I don't want it. I have just turned them off completely
Other Thoughts: This is my first Razer product but it won't be my last. This is a great mouse I love using the top buttons to change the dpi settings in games like battlefield 3 and splinter cell. My next mouse will be Razer but I'll probably go with one that has fewer buttons on the thumb. Then again, maybe I'll just work on getting better at using them.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: Price - in my opinion this case has the highest quality for the price range. It's just about as small as it gets for a high performance Mini ITX gaming machine. See "Other thoughts" for more details.
Cons: Size - I'm water cooling mine and I was able to fit a single 120mm rad (25mm thick), fan and pump/reservoir combo but it's a tight fit and I had to remove the drive bays. Also, it fits one 2.5" drive and one 3.5" drive. So don't look to this case if you're looking to build a NAS or have more than a couple drives.
Other Thoughts: Bravo to Silvestone on this one. I liked this case but up until this "lite" version they all came with power supplies. I have a 600W power supply and the largest offered by Silverstone was 450W. The front of this case is metal and feels very solid (there is some plastic mounted to the front to connect it to the case).
I love that the 5.25" slim drive and 3.5" bays are removable. Makes it very easy to install all your components. There is plastic grommets to protect cables from sharp metal (I personally wouldn't expect this for a case in this price range).
When I had taken everything out of the case (bays, fan, front cover, etc.) the frame is still very solid. It does not bend or twist.
Stand-offs are mounted to the base. Screws for the standoffs fit perfectly. Fan comes with grill.
If there was anything I would change about this case, I would make it 1" longer. That's just so I could fit a thicker radiator in there. Air cooling, I think this case hits it out of the park.

Pros: See, tech specs... Everything about this board is awesome. It has everything you can ask for in a high end mother board and it's mITX!!! Over clocking is fantastic. love the ROG colors and BIOS interface. Boots insanely fast with my samsung 830 pro SSD. RAM Disk! BRAVO ASUS, well done!
Cons: Sata port placement, they're behind the memory and pci-e slot so cable routing is not as pretty as it could be. The wireless/m.2 daughter board doesn't feel solid after mounting. It has one screw to mount to the mother board and one screw to mount to the back plate. With both in place it still doesn't feel stable. I won't be using the wireless or the m.2 port for at least a little while so I won't dock an egg.
Other Thoughts: One other thing I don't like about the wireless is that it has wires that need to run along the back plate which adds more wires inside the case. While to some this may be a benefit by being able to run it to a different location inside the case I don't like the look so I will not use this card until I decide to upgrade to an m.2 SSD.
I have water cooled mine with the red bitspower water block and it looks fantastic.
