Pros: Air flow out the wazzoo. I really like having the psu at the bottom of the case, you don't have to worry about a large heat sink getting in the way, cable management is easier, allows heat to exit directly out of the top of the case, etc. Plenty of room inside this mid sized case. Screwless, which I'm fine with. On top of that, I think this is a really nice looking case. Sturdy too.
Cons: You may want to grab a 120mm fan for the rear, at least. There are 4 other spots if you need more fans. If you are still using IDE devices, keep in mind that sideways mounting hdds makes it impossible for most standard sized IDE cables to reach between the hdd and disk drive. At least that was the case with another case, this one is a bit different and it looks like the two bays would be closer together. You could always use a bay converter or just rig something up yourself.
Other Thoughts: I was using this for my second machine for a while before I used it to build a christmas gift for someone else. I'm sad I parted ways with it now. Nice case.READ FULL REVIEW
This review is from: OCZ Diesel 8GB USB 2.0 Flash Drive Model OCZUSBDSL8G
Pros: Durable, small, looks nice, good price.
Cons: The transfer rate isn't the best out there, but for the price range this is a pretty decent stick. The way the filesystem is formatted may help some, I really haven't tried to see if it's made a noticeable difference.
Other Thoughts: I've been using this to play xvids on my standalone dvd player, which worked fine. Took roughly 1 - 1.5 minutes to move a 700MB file. Just recently bought a 2tb drive, threw it in an external case. Would consider building an htpc, but to use on a crt tv would probably be mostly disappointing.READ FULL REVIEW
This review is from: Antec 761345-75024-0 120mm Blue LED 3-Speed Case Cooling Fan
Pros: After almost 2 years it's still running fine. 3 speed, at lowest it's hard to hear, high pushes a decent amount of air, but still isn't very loud. I've had this placed up front for hdds. Switch is on the end of a short wire, which I can access simply by pulling the filter cover off the front of my case.
Cons: None really. I really don't think it's bad for the price. There may be some quieter fans out there, but this one beats most that I've used on sound.READ FULL REVIEW
