Thermaltake V9 Black Edition ATX Computer Gaming Chassis with Dual Oversized 230mm Ultra-Silent Cooling Fans VJ400G1N2Z Mid Tower
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: 1 day to 1 week

Pros: The giant cooling fans are nice and quiet, and the tool-less installation equipment is pretty nice. HD bays face outwards, which I like.

Cons: I couldn't figure out how to mount my HDs in a non-awkward way. I eventually mounted them with the ports facing inwards, which made wiring them very annoying. Maybe I'm just missing something...

Other Thoughts: not many great places to run wiring, but it's not a side-view, so no one can see the wiring if it turns out a little messy.

GIGABYTE GA-790FXTA-UD5 AM3 AMD 790FX SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 ATX AMD Motherboard
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: 1 day to 1 week

Pros: Tons of features, very easy to adjust setting in BIOS. I did a mild over-clock on a Phenom II X4 965, to 3.8ghz, didn't even have to touch voltage. You might have to adjust RAM speed manually, my DDR3 1600 defaulted to 1333, but only took a few moments to correct. Dual BIOS chips, dual LAN ports, lots of redundancy to keep your computer going if something dies.

Cons: Not cool colors :-p

Other Thoughts: This is a great MOBO with tons of features and things to tinker with.

Get the RAID drivers copied onto a floppy for an XP install, or an SD card (or equivalent) for a windows 7 install.

Driver CD has a great auto-install to manage everything.
