This review is from: APEVIA X-Gear ATXB5KLW-BL Blue Steel ATX Mid Tower Computer Case 420W Power Supply
Pros: My daughter wanted a blue computer for christmas so this was the box I chose. It came in less than 24 hrs and looked great! Plenty of room and glowing blue lights.
Added a DH67BL MB, an i5 2500 and all the other goodies.
Ended up with a great computer for my gaming daughter
that looks very cool in her darkened room. No problems yet. This was an incredible buy for only $40 bucks. I had planned on spending about $150 for the case & PS so I was thrilled to get both for such a low price. Thanks Newegg &
Thanks Apevia X-Gear.
Cons: The only issue of course like all the other reviews was the
lack of sata connections, but I knew that going in.
It was no problem getting adapters. When this box was manufactured there probably wasn`t much demand for
Other Thoughts: This was a gift for my daughter who pointed out to me
that the cover over the top fan, looks like the alien-ware
logo. Wasn`t sure if there is a connection there.
Pros: New build for my gaming daughter who always complains: "it`s laggy", with all her other comps.
Set her up with this board, an i5 2500, 4gs of ram
plus the usual, in a shiny blue case. She is now very happy and can now skype, play games on hi-res, record music
and chat all at the same time with no lag. I had hardly any problems setting up, and the board has been on non-stop
for almost a week with no issues.
Cons: The only problem on setup was trying to get the board to recognize the HD. I kept getting the BSOD on boot. Had to change the bios to IDE. After that it worked like a charm.
I gave the full 5 eggs because the problem was nut behind the wheel, not the board.
Other Thoughts: Newegg came through as usual. At the height of the Christmas rush I got all my items for my new build in
48 hrs or less. With just regular shipping. Thanks Newegg!
