This review is from: APEVIA X-TROOPER Series X-TRP-GN Black/Green Steel ATX Mid Tower Computer Case
Pros: Cool looking case, love the green fans. I ordered a big green Monster Drink decal for the blank side, should fit the theme well. Inside space seems to be adequate, unusual to come with 5 fans but there lies one of the problems, see cons for that.
Cons: It's great that it comes with 5 fans but apparently to save money they are the 4 wire molex type, using 2 of the wires. Most new modern mother boards come with several fan control headers so therefore in order to use them you have to buy adapters to get to a 3-4 pin fan connector. Then because they are only 2 wire there will not be any rpm's reported, however speed control still works. I would have given it 5 stars if it had the right fan connectors reporting fan speed. Guess you can't win em all.READ FULL REVIEW
This review is from: Denon 7.1 Channel Networking Home Theater Receiver
Pros: After going thru 4 other receivers (Panasonic, 2 Onkyo, and Yamaha) all having HDMI switching or screen drop out issues this one works quite well. Not one problem after 1 month . Onscreen programming works well. Really enjoy the internet radio more than I thought I would. The remote is simple, easy to use to almost to a fault as I'll explain in cons. Has good sound quality as well.
Cons: I do wish it had 2 subwoofer outs. The remote while being simple and easy to use has one big fault. Has only 3 favorite station buttons, seeing how there is a huge amount of internet stations available, more would have been nice. It definitely has the space for it, could easily have 9 buttons.
Other Thoughts: Overall this receiver is a solid performer, the few issues I have were not enough to make it less than 5 star. Wish I would have started with this unit and saved myself a lot of grief.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: This case is a great bargain, looks nice, has removable h/d cage for extra room for those huge video cards, cooling is above what I expected, by adding 200mm fan on top (not included, get C/M fan) it brought my motherboard temp down 12 degrees, CPU temp down 15 degrees. Cable management is very good, can run biggest (24 pin m/b feed) cable in back of m/b. And it's actually lighter than most of this category. For the price it's a no brainer.
Cons: None that I can find.READ FULL REVIEW
