Cooler Master Elite 130 - Mini-ITX Computer Case with Mesh Front Panel and Water Cooling Support
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 week to 1 month

Pros: This case is very compact. I moved to this case from my old NZXT Vulcan mATX case and the size reduction was amazing! This case is shorter, and just about less than half the height of the Vulcan. It has great airflow (best configuration I have found is with the PSU fan upside down and the 80mm fan acting as exhaust).

I was able to cram a Zalman CNPS8900 CPU cooler in this thing and it fits with about a quarter of an inch under the PSU.

I have this case sitting on my desk to my left, and the front I/O is really nice and easily accessible. I charge my phone and from the front USB and even have my keyboard receiver plugged into the 2.0 USB since there are 3 USB ports, when most cases only feature 2.

I have a Rosewill 120mm red LED fan in the front, and it glows through the front mesh giving this case a mean but sexy look. If I were attracted to computers I would slap a ring on this one.

The power and Reset buttons are great. Very sturdy, with a nice and audible click when depressed.

And finally, I was able to fit two 2.5" drvies and one 3.5" drive with a 5.25" Fan Controller in this case. I also have an R9 280 which fits perfectly and still has more room to go.

Cons: Nothing worth noting.

Other Thoughts: I put an MSI A88XI AC WiFi capable motherboard in this case and take it to friends houses for LAN parties. It's small and and hardly take up any space which is nice.

Transportation is just about as clumsy as a normal mATX case though, considering there are no handles or easy way to carry this case. With both hands is optimal, but if your carrying a monitor and/or backpack with keyboards and mice, one handed transportation of this case can be a bit difficult, especially since it most likely will be heavy due to the components you'll out in this thing.

This is not a con, but merely something to consider based on what you're buying the case for. Otherwise, the small form factor makes up for everything when you see how much space you're saving. I cant this case in a backpack!

Rosewill RFA-80RL - 80mm Computer Case Cooling Fan with LP4 Adapter - Red Frame & 4 Red LED Lights, Sleeve Bearing, Silent
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 week to 1 month

Pros: This fan is great. Not too loud, and it is very bright.
Comes with extra fan screws and a molex adapter.

If you need an 80mm fan just buy this one. No reason not to.

Cons: None.

Other Thoughts: Won't fit in the Cooler Master Elite 130 ITX Case.

XFX Double D R9-280A-TDFD Radeon R9 280 3GB 384-Bit GDDR5 PCI Express 3.0 CrossFireX Support Video Card
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 month to 1 year

Pros: -Easily boost clock speeds using drivers
-Cheaper than 280X yet nearly same performance
-Beautiful design that matches almost any color theme in your PC
-Plays all of my games on High-Ultra 1080p no problem

Cons: -None

Other Thoughts: Bought this card a while back with 2-day shipping and was around $311 to order. Since then the price has dropped further, which is great!

This card is an excellent card. It isn't to loud, but it also isn't quiet while gaming in high-end games.

Have never had any issues with this card. JUst plug it in, boot up, and download the latest drivers from AMD and it will work like a charm.

I have boosted the GPU clock speed from 933MHz to 1025MHz, and the Memory clock from 1200MHz to 1325MHz and have had no issues with games crashing or running poorly.
