This review is from: Antec DF-85 Black Steel / Plastic ATX Full Tower Computer Case
Pros: Had this case for a year now. Came back to write a review after owning for a while.
-Front fan filters are very nice and easily accessible for cleaning
-Cable management is awesome. Tons of room on the back side to hide everything and plenty of holes on the board to feed the cable in the right place.
Overall very sleek looking as a good price.
Cons: A few things I think they could improve on.
-The 3 latched covers on the front of the case to "hide" the drives are very fragile and unnecessary. Had to go through 2 cases to find one without one or more of these broken. They feel more "in the way" than anything else and I almost want to just remove them.
-My USB 2.0 on the front of the case (right next to the 3.0 USB) has not worked sense I bought it a year ago. IDK if this is a common issue with other cases, but I have tried about everything and cannot get it to recognized anything. If anyone knows a repair for this then please let me know.
-The front fan control knobs are very fragile. I have almost broke them a few time trying to tinker with fan speeds.
-Wish they would ahve made the hard drive bays as a no screw installation
Overall, I think that a lot of the plastic "flair" on the outside seem unnecessary other than for cosmetic reasons and I think they could have made a sturdier unit without all this.
This review is from: ASUS Sabertooth X58 LGA 1366 Intel X58 SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 ATX Intel Motherboard
Pros: Very solid built board, this thing is much heavier than any other motherboard I have handled. Specs are comparable to the Rampage III, but at a better price for what I am using it for.
Cons: The only thing I do not like about this board is how the sata connectors are positioned. They are facing to the right of the board rather than up as sata slots usually are which makes it hard to connect to. Only other thing would be color of the board, which is like a military green, but color should not keep you away from this board.READ FULL REVIEW
