Seagate Barracuda ST1000DM003 1TB 7200 RPM 64MB Cache SATA 6.0Gb/s 3.5
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 month to 1 year

Pros: Got it for a build i was making for my wife. Pairing it with an ssd and using for storage. It serves it purpose well and haven't had any issues. Installation was also trouble free.

Cons: doesn't come with a sata cable. This is common with drives, however it's something to be aware of if you don't already have one.

Other Thoughts: will update if it fails but as of now i recommend.

Sentey Optimus Extreme Division Tower Case - RED 3 x LED FAN / 1 120mm Rear FAN /2 x USB / Card Rdr / Fan Control /4 x Removable Bays / Screwless
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 month to 1 year

Pros: Looks great and comes with led fans. Glossy finish gives it a nice shine. The large side fan looks awesome with the room lights off but not so bright it hurts the eyes.

Cons: Mostly plastic but not a big deal to me. Only problem was that covers that go over the fan vents both on the top and side. Very hard to remove when you need to clean the filters. I think i broke one of the clips on the top. Should be easier to work considering the filters need to be clean every so often.

Other Thoughts: Was on sale and i needed it for a build i was doing for my parents. Nice value for the price. No regrets.

XION XON-560 mATX/ ITX Meshed Mini Tower Case, USB 3.0, Black/Blue LED

4 out of 5 eggs Good deal for budget build 11/02/2014

This review is from: XION XON-560 mATX/ ITX Meshed Mini Tower Case, USB 3.0, Black/Blue LED

Pros: Was trying to build a solid all around pc as cheaply as possible. This case was inexpensive and has all the features i could ask for. The front usb 3 cable comes with an adapter for usb2 which i needed for the mobo i got. Without it the port would have gone unused. I placed a 140mm fan on the side panel with no issue at all. The case can hold two hard drives and two ssd drives. The ssd' can be mounted sideways above the drive cage. I had no trouble with the length of the or functionality cables coming from the front of the case. The led fan is not to bright but looks good. Airflow is about as good as you can expect with a stock case fan. I was also able to fit an HD 7770 gpu and the cooler master seidon 120mm cooler into this case with no hassle.

Cons: the side behind the mobo has a vent, for what reason i have no clue. You will not fit a fan back there not even a slim. You can route cables back there but it is a tight fit especially for those heavily braided psu cables. The routing holes for the cables could also be placed a little better. The real reason for the egg drop however is the bottom right corner under the motherboard has no standoff. In this case the standoff's are pre-attached. Problem is that there simply isn't one at all on the bottom right. Didn't break off either as i felt the surface with my finger. No cut out or jagged surface indicating it was there at some point. Some might say no big deal one missing standoff isn't really a big deal. I agree but its annoying cause that's the corner with my sata ports. So i need to be careful when pressing down to brace the board with my other hand to avoid bending it.

Other Thoughts: This is a microatx case meant for matx boards so the missing standoff is odd. I decided it wasn't worth the hassle and cost of an rma since the heaviest thing i'd attaching to the board is a light weight gpu. However anyone using a beefier add on card might want to be careful. Its necessity pretty much depends on the board in questions overall layout. However unless your planning to stick a r9 290x in this thing you probably don't have a reason to worry about the standoff. I will also say that i would recommend this case for budget builds looking for a balance of features and value.
