Pros: Low price, nice appearance, no sharp edges inside
Cons: I had trouble matching the connectors to the front panel LEDs. Probably not a con, due to fitting a very old, IDE computer I fit into the case. The one USB in front is way at the bottom, although in my case, I didn't wire it, so students would not play their own bloody games. I would have liked the side panel removal screws in the back to be the larger, finger-operated type. For the price, I can easily live with these small negatives.
Other Thoughts: This case and PS was a perfect way to affordably keep an old computer alive for a classroom (LAN'd mild war games to reward high schoolers at the end of the week!)READ FULL REVIEW
This review is from: NZXT CB-LED10-BU Sleeved LED Kit - Blue, 1 m
Pros: Overall high quality.
Cons: The lights are extremely directional. Each light has a beam 10cm wide when shooting across the width of the case, about 14cm. If components are closer to the light you get small bright spots on them. Maybe not the option if you want "glow" in your case.
Other Thoughts: In my NZXT case, the blue is a little more cobalt blue color than the stock fan LEDs, OK, but it's always hard to get exact matches. I took out my NZXT's main black mesh metal piece so that enough light shows through.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: Very good cooling, quiet fan.
Cons: Backplate changed from metal to plastic, which turned out to be OK but initally disappointing. The printed instructions did not include my FM2 socket. The fan LED's are white, so I clipped the wires to defeat them. Default LED color should be blue which is probably the most common case light color. NO SPRINGS in the cooler mount, leaving me unsure of proper torque when tightening. Instructions are sparse to accomodate every language in the known world. The drawing shows a wrench tightening the screw, an illustration which could also work for replacing the lug nuts of a truck.
Other Thoughts: This is a revised review from my previous slam "Not As Advertised" which was hasty. I called Xigmatek and the rep said their website now includes the directions for my FM2 socket, which it did. The install went well from that point. Overall, not smooth, so I'm adding 2 eggs.READ FULL REVIEW
