COUGAR MX300 Black Steel ATX Mid Tower Computer Case with 1 x 12cm COUGAR TURBINE HYPER-SPIN Bearing Silent Fans and USB 3.0 Standard ATX PS2 ( optional ) Power Supply
  • Owned For: 1 week to 1 month

Pros: Good looking case, good layout for HDD's & SSD's bays.
This case has room for most of your needs. Lots of room for your fans. Cable management not that bad, could use so more room. But then most Mid Towers do.

Cons: I wouldn't be looking to put a 240mm AIO water cooling in the top. It's weak in that point. Front bezel USB2 hookup plug wires are thin so watch with care as they will pull out easy if and when you unplug it. Ready needs heavier wires for it.

Other Thoughts: Hats off to the Cougar RMA support as they are sending me another one to switch out. Fast response from there RMA support. Thank you Newegg offered a replacement case: But why, only need the new hookups from the front bezel PCB board, Thanks anyway e Bay-Newegg store. Even offered shipping cost return label. "First on that point from Newegg" Hope this review helps
ps: I would still buy another has case fits a lot of needs and also looks good.

MSI Z97 U3 Plus LGA 1150 Intel Z97 HDMI SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 ATX Intel Motherboard
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 month to 1 year

Pros: Cost, looks good,UEIF Bios easy to work with, I would read up on your bios settings first to make things easier for you if not use to UEIF.

Cons: Ram Compatibility List

Other Thoughts: Ram compatibility list states 8GB kit of Corsair XMS3 4x2gb kit CMX8GX3M4A1333C9 is compatible. Doesn't seem to be. Is causing freezes with computer. Ram tested good "mem86test" so not the chips. "Maybe motherboard doesn't like 4 chips installed??" Doesn't freeze with one 4gb stick installed. Research on your ram first to be installed into mobo. CPU is a Intel Pentium Processor G3258 <<--- OC's great: I don't know if problem is in CPU but most likely not as runs fine with just the -- one ram stick in it. <-- " Different Brand " Bios is flashed to latest release.
MSI please recheck your Ram Compatibilty List
Not Neweggs doing so cant knock off egg for that

Cooler Master Elite 430 - Mid Tower Computer Case with All-Black Interior and Windowed Side Panel
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 week to 1 month

Pros: Price; Looks

Cons: Cable management, knock out PCIe slots

Other Thoughts: This is a good looking case and the price is low. But it does not have any cable management at ALL. I would not purchase this case again. If your not into cable management then your should be happy with this case but still,, only purchase it on a special only.Knock out PCIe bay slots need replacements after, Case is still made somewhat cheep. If price is a factor then go for it.
