Other Thoughts: Bought this for a htpc. Realisticly its kinda slow. My old htpc had a dated socket 775 Celeron E3400 dual core 2.6ghz, 4gb ddr2, and a GT8500 512mb card (this computer is about 8 years old). My old htpc would walk circles around this Athlon 5350 far as user experience. I ended up switching my new htpc to a Intel Celeron G1820 (same price) and h81 mothboard. Did some testing and the G1820 beats the 5350 in every test even multitasking and graphics dispite being a dual core. Mean while with Intel Speedstep enabled keeps it cool and sipping power. Testing was done with Geekbench 3, Cinebench r15, Performance Test full suite, and Unigen Heaven. Plus the Intel hd graphics are easy to oc for a free performance boost.READ FULL REVIEW

This one is for Linus... It comes boxed nicely in hard foam.
Cons: One con I have and this is preference is the side window is smoked not plain clear. This makes it hard for my girlfriend to see all her beautiful hardware....LOL
Also the plastic snaps that stick up through the bottom to hold the rear back corner foot on the case sticks through the bottom of the case to far and slightly impedes where the PSU sits. Not a big deal with a little determination.
Other Thoughts: Would buy this case again over ANY other case in its price. Heck I might buy another for no reason.READ FULL REVIEW
