XION XON-560 mATX/ ITX Meshed Mini Tower Case, USB 3.0, White/Blue LED
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: 1 month to 1 year

4 out of 5 eggs Solid fantastic case! 01/04/2014

This review is from: XION XON-560 mATX/ ITX Meshed Mini Tower Case, USB 3.0, White/Blue LED

Pros: Solidly built (more quality than you would expect in this price range)
Noise reduction grommets for the optical bays.
Water cooling holes
Fits 12" cards with room to spare
Bottom mounted PSU
Fantastic air flow
... its white... your argument is invalid...
decent, ok cable management, super long cables are nice

Cons: No removable motherboard tray
Plastic HDD rails you HAVE to use for 3.5" drives, and there is only 2 of them
Only fits 3 hard drives, 1x 2.5" and 2x3'5"
3 optical bays... Why is this a con? How often in the last year or two have you used an optical disk in your PC? When have you ever needed more than 1 drive? The space could have been better suited for more hard drives...
Other side panel can't hold more casefans...

Other Thoughts: I fault this 1 egg for flimsy plastic hdd trays, the over usage of optical bays, only 1 USB 3 port, and no removable motherboard tray.
The side panel can hold 3 case fans... It has room for 4 but it won't fit with the power supply, unless you do slimline ones.
The front LEDs are white not blue... very bright...
Being white, the plastic and metal aren't the same hue of white.
It is a great office/gaming case.
Looks fantastic wherever it is put. I buy these for the computer shop and decided to get one for my house.
Great case for the price.

GIGABYTE Radeon HD 7950 DirectX 11 GV-R795WF3-3GD 3GB 384-Bit GDDR5 PCI Express 3.0 x16 HDCP Ready CrossFireX Support Video Card
  • neweggOwned For: 1 month to 1 year

Pros: * Plays every game I throw at it at max settings, Crysis 3 even...
* 3 Free Games
* 3 Fans, no need to buy aftermarket cooler unless you water cool, for forced air it rocks!
* 1GHZ clock speed

Cons: None it works great for $200 bucks!

Other Thoughts: Make sure you update your BIOS on your motherboard to the very latest. As some have noted it won't post dependent on motherboards. The ECS P67H2-A3 wont work with stock BIOS you need to head over to the site and update the BIOS. This is not secluded to Gigabyte alone, but the 7900 series cards and the instruction booklet says "please update your BIOS before you plug this card in to the very latest from your manufacturers website". If you can not be bothered to read the manual, do not fault the card. Also buy a PSU with both 6 pin and 8 pin connectors, expecting a PSU to just power this with the included adapters is asking for trouble and probably have issues powering the card as molex connectors are often given less wattage on the rails than native VGA power. Also you have to change the BIOS from "Automatic" to "PCI Express". IDK for some reason it doesn't always self detect. Other than people being nubs and not reading the manual and following the included instructions (who would have thought instructions would give you the answer) it is the best card I have ever owned hands down!

ARCTIC Accelero TT II VGA Cooler - nVidia & AMD, Dual Quiet 92mm PWM Fans, SLI/CrossFire
  • neweggOwned For: more than 1 year

Pros: Cools 30%-40% 30% under load, 40%ish idle.
Decent for overclocking a little bit.
Looks ridiculously hot in my case.
Super quiet. I run the fans on the lowest settings and it still cools better than stock cooler!

Cons: not really a con but adds like an additional slot making it take up 3 slots of space so you cant fit addon cards under neath it.

Other Thoughts: I don't get what people are complaining about. The included instructions make it very clear that you have to mix the glue for quite some time before applying it, and to let it sit for a few hours. They include arctic silver thermal glue and you complain about the best stuff on the market? It hangs from 4 screws, but its copper pipes and aluminum, so its not that heavy. If you are worried about stressing your video card out, use some clear cellotape and affix the back end and you will be fine. The product isnt the issue, the person is... One person said to use 2 part epoxy? yeesh...
