This review is from: Antec Sonata Series SOLO II Black Aluminum / Steel ATX Mid Tower Computer Case
Pros: Super quiet.
3 Large Fan openings (I bought 2 for the front)
No overheating problems, ventilation seems good.
USB3.0 to bring me to the next gen
I will likely keep this case if I ever change MBs, this is just a great all around case for general use.
Cons: Little plastic clear thing to shine HDD light to the fron of the case broke off before I even got the PC setup. This does not bother me at all, and should actually be a pro, because I can still see the HDD light perfectly well without the little "portal", and I would think it would be too bright with it installed.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: Works great for basic computer functions. Also, with as many times as it has crashed, I have not lost any data. This works great if you do not expect to be gaming very much.
Cons: Crashes when I play intense games, usually online, but not always. I can feel the heat from the Hard Drive on the side of my case. Nothing else is hot, pc and vid card show standard temps. I will be getting a better hard drive shortly and will use this as storage.READ FULL REVIEW
This review is from: ASUS P8B75-V LGA 1155 Intel B75 SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 ATX Intel Motherboard
Pros: No issues with the MB so far. It perfectly fits my needs as I balance my work/play life. Expansion slots (incl PCIex3) provides enough room to keep my PC up-to-date with anything I need.
Mem: DDR3 1333 (PC3 10666) - Mush
Stays cool, works well, can't beat it for the value!
Cons: I do not overclock, but read that this motherboard does not support OC very well, if at all.
Other Thoughts: If you are not a hardcore gamer, and don't OC your build, then I highly recommend this board. It should be able to bring you into the new age. I hate having too many options, like OC, when I know for a fact that I will not be doing that. This is the perfect MB for the average user.READ FULL REVIEW
