Thermaltake VP40031W2N Black ATX Full Tower Computer Case w/ Liquid Cooling System
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: more than 1 year

4 out of 5 eggs Nice case but some flaws 01/08/2016

This review is from: Thermaltake VP40031W2N Black ATX Full Tower Computer Case w/ Liquid Cooling System

Pros: LCS is pretty nice for the price, it is a nice looking case

Cons: Okay, where to start

1. The cooling fans on the radiator are junk, they made more racket than a cat in heat. I had to remove the brand new fans and put on some articcool fans off of my old case.

2. The case needs to be at least 2 inches taller. You have to completely remove the radiator to install the mother board.

3. It will not work with RAM that has a tall heat sink. Once you put the MOBO in, you realize you need to put the ram in before you can put the radiator in. Well to my dismay when I put in the Radiator in, I bent one of the RAM DIMMS on ASUS Rampage IV Black mother board to the point that the dim in question no longer works. If the MOBO was just a hair taller it would have cleared everything. In the end I figured out if I clipped or removed the fans protective wiring it wold fit the ram.

4. It says it will handle an E-ATX MOBO, and it does, just not very well. I only have access to half of my processors heat sink brace. The MOBO covers up almost all of the cable routing holes.

5. The front faced fits very loose

6. The USB 3.0 cable for the front port is too stiff and torques on the plug a little to much and has popped off.

7. With the LCS in place you can only fit one 5 inch drive. The 3 inch drive can not be modified to for a 5 inch drive.


Update: after a year and a half ownership the case is still holding up well and the SATA hard drive adapter on the top of the case has come in hand many many time. It just need to be a tad bigger in dimensions all around

CORSAIR RM Series RM650 650W ATX12V v2.31 and EPS 2.92 80 PLUS GOLD Certified Full Modular Active PFC Power Supply
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: more than 1 year

Pros: Absolutely silent
Modular

Cons: none

Other Thoughts: Perfect for an always on HTPC. In the year I have owned the PS, my HTPC has only been shut off a small hand full of times. Not once have I had the fans come on to cool it down. If you want a dead quiet PS for your HTPC this is the only way to go.

1 out of 5 eggs Does NOT fit the Corsair H50 08/07/2014

This review is from: NZXT RL-KRG10-B1 Sleeve Kraken G10 GPU Bracket

Pros: can use a OTC water cooling on your video card

Cons: Poor design
soft metal
poor fan placement for VRM
VRM close to the back plate get no cooling at all

DOES NOT WORK WITH THE CORSAIR H50. It looks like it will, but the pump and copper plate are too think and wide to fit into the the covers slip hole.

Other Thoughts: It is a good idea, but needs a better design. I attempted to re-engineer the H50 and destroyed it in the process.
