This review is from: Antec NEW SOLUTION SERIES VSK-4000 Black SGCC steel ATX Mid Tower Computer Case
Pros: Nice big case
Cons: Damaged, big dent on top making the side cover hard to remove. package looked fine on the outside, no visible damage.
Other Thoughts: Was only 20 bucks, will use in the garage. Scratch & Dent works fine in garage. nothing a hammer and a can of black paint wont cover up. cost to ship back under RMA not worth the effortREAD FULL REVIEW
Pros: Has mSATA slot on top of board making it easy to install the mSATA card after its in a very small box.
Z77 chipset so you get USB 3.0, along with all the other great options that go with a Z77 as well a WI-FI and Bluetooth.
Rebates are always a nice bonus o a board that you are going to buy regardless of price
Cons: mSATA is rated a 3 GB vice 6 GB but you never noticed the lower speed when paired with a Plextor M5M PX-256M5M mSATA 256GB SATA III MLC Internal Solid State Drive (SSD).
Other Thoughts: Bought a second board after I built an i7 with an mSATA drive and now I am waiting for the mSATA to go on sale again so I can afford another Plextor M5M PX-256M5M mSATA 256GB.
Hope the holiday specials, will see a huge cut in CPU prices and I can pickup another i7 with a huge discount and a holiday promotion like I did when I bought components for the last build.
Pros: Has VGA, DVI, HDMI outputs
Drives my 23 VGA and 27 HDMI monitors without issues.
Rebate is a plus making an easy choice for a low cost upgrade.
Other Thoughts: Paired with Q9500 & 8GB DDR3 Memory for a workstation that performs well at all the work task I can throw at it.
Being spoiled with an i7 at home this makes the work machine more than acceptable.
Very responsive when using two monitors as compared to the GT430 it replaced.
