This review is from: NZXT Phantom 410 Series CA-PH410-R1 Red Steel / Plastic ATX Mid Tower Computer Case
Pros: This is the second Phantom box that I've purchased,and while they are quite large I love the extra space. If you don't mind the size this box offers a lot of room to work with, allowing for several expansion slots and good air circulation. As far as quality goes, I have no complaints about either of the two that I've purchased. The power chords and fan connections are easy to work with and can leave you a lot of room since the box has plenty of pathways to run through.
If you don't mind the bulky size, I can't recommend these boxes enough.
Cons: The only two real cons that I have for this box is that the rubber covers inside are not very well attached and come off quite easy. Additionally, the door to the disc drive area on the front of the box uses a push-to-close/open set up, so it can be a bit temperamental at times about doing either.
Other Thoughts: In the future, if the manufacturer can improve both the door and inside rubber wire padding, this box would be just about as perfect as it can get.READ FULL REVIEW
This review is from: ASUS P8Z77-V LE LGA 1155 Intel Z77 HDMI SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 ATX Intel Motherboard
Pros: I purchased this motherboard as it's similar to a previous one that I used in my last computer build. It's easy to use and set up even for first timers.
In comparison to the motherboard that this one was purchased to replace, the GIGABYTE GA-Z77X-UD3H LGA 1155 Intel Z77 HDMI SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 ATX Intel Motherboard, which I had nothing but problems with from the time I opened the box, it's infinitely better.
As for this motherboard, it has easy to use BIOS and simplistic adjustments if you're looking to squeeze a bit more power out of your hardware for gaming. I would certainly recommend this line to those looking to replace their motherboard or build a new PC.
Cons: I'm happy to say that there are none so far.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: Not a one, and that's a first.
Cons: I bought this motherboard to build a cpu for my nephew. I've had nothing but trouble with it. It came with bent pens in the USB 3.0 MB socket. I've been unable to even get it to turn on, so given that all the devices hooked to it are in good working order, I can only assume there's an issue with the motherboard. It's in all likelihood just dead.
My best advice is to avoid this and anything like it. This is pretty much the harshest review I've written, but if it saves anyone else the headache that I've had with this thing all the better.
