This review is from: Antec P280 Black Aluminum / Steel Super Mid Tower Computer Case
Pros: Nice simplistic design, very quiet, USB 3.0 without that cheesy bypass through the back method some cases use, easily removable dust filters on front and for PSU, tons of room behind mobo tray got cable management
Cons: Front panel connectors are a little short. I got them all hooked up, but some were a stretch and had to bypass the cable management holes to make it work (namely the front panel audio) and one wire from the USB header was broken when I got the case. Not worth RMA'ing it for one of four USB ports, but still aggravating.
Other Thoughts: This was a long overdue upgrade to my old case, so overall I'm very happy with it and I would recommend it to anyone else. I just wish they'd make the front panel connectors a couple inches longer.READ FULL REVIEW
This review is from: Crucial M4 2.5" 128GB SATA III MLC Internal Solid State Drive (SSD) CT128M4SSD2
Pros: It works. What else is there to say? Fast at stock speed with the ability to OC (allegedly, I haven't tried to, and likely will not try) and is cheaper than many other memory options out there
Other Thoughts: Comes with a case sticker, in case you really need people to know what brand of RAM you have I suppose.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: Runs cool, fan isn't loud even under load, 1gb of VRAM means you can run higher resolutions without your framerate tanking; overall a great value.
Cons: Only thing I can think of is that it has a mini-HDMI port instead of a full. Not a big deal since it comes with an adapter cable though.
Other Thoughts: For people complaining that your performance dropped with this card versus a inferior card; that's not an issue with the 460, that's an issue with your windows install. The 32bit version of windows 7 has a max of 4GB RAM TOTAL. Meaning, video card ram counts against your total (look at your ram numbers in your computer info, it'll say 4GB total, 3.25GB available after installing the 460). Install the 64 bit version (the retail windows 7 box comes with a disc for either, and the same registration number works for both) to be able to utilize up to 32gb of RAM, so you'll get all your system memory and the gtx 460s VRAM. Easy peasy.READ FULL REVIEW
