This review is from: XION XON-560 mATX/ ITX Meshed Mini Tower Case, USB 3.0, White/Blue LED
Pros: Bottom mounted PSU!! Drive bay layout creates a little spare working room. Optional SSD mounting spot!! Easy to disassemble/assemble. Front Panel options--all the basics!! Fantastic color/design. Cable management..
Cons: The supplied Intake fan mounts between facia plate and case. This is ok unless you plan to install your own Intake fan that has magnetics to it. I had to use tin snips and cut out a hole so my Intake fan motor wouldn't magnetize itself to the case. Not knocking an egg since supplied fan is fine enough for most people. OH, BEWARE! If you plan to put a large 220/200 mm fan on the side.... the thickness of the fan must be under 25mm or it will hit up against your psu... unless you have a freakishly small psu like my mini.
Other Thoughts: Overall, I'm pretty impressed with this case. It has USB 3.0 on front, more drive bay slots than I need, bottom mounted PSU, and has a slot for the SSD. With a little time and patience, cable management is good. Best of all, it looks nice even if I leave it on top of my desk.READ FULL REVIEW
This review is from: ASRock B150M-HDV LGA 1151 HDMI SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 Micro ATX Intel Motherboard
Pros: Has each component needed for a standard gaming or every day use PC. Seems reliable enough so far. Set up went pretty smoothly unlike the old relics I've worked with. Of course, the option for the Newest Intel cpu is why I bought it... along with my experience being awesome with the companies customer support in the past. Also picked this one as the PCIe x1 slot is far enough below the PCIe x16 slot so I can input a dual slot gpu and still fit in my wifi card.
Cons: Only one chassis fan header... nothing else wrong imo
Other Thoughts: I would of liked there to be more chasis fan connectors but, I'm not knocking an egg since it's typical for a lot of mobo's to only have one. I just feel there should always be two..... one for Intake and one for Exhaust controlled by mobo.... maybe someday....READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: My first set of RAM over 1600MHz and definitely impressed. Not super tech savvy at judging ram but, Windows Experience index rates them as 7.9 which is the max score for memory operations using that.... when looking at performance monitor, these are super low on read/write errors--there are always errors on any RAM (maybe more OpSys fault than ram?) but, these outperform any I've had in past.
Cons: Can't think of any. If they fail the test of time, I will update but, none for now.
Other Thoughts: Best part is these are on my Motherboards Qualified Vendors List for memory modules.... most likely will/should be for any general motherboard.READ FULL REVIEW
