Cooler Master Hyper 212 EVO - CPU Cooler with 120 mm PWM Fan
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 day to 1 week

5 out of 5 eggs Difficult to install, but works great 01/06/2014

This review is from: Cooler Master Hyper 212 EVO - CPU Cooler with 120 mm PWM Fan

Pros: The fan is quiet and seems to run the CPU cool. I haven't pushed performance on the CPU to see how hot it will get.

Cons: Had to remove the entire motherboard from the case to install. Getting all four screws of the mounting bracket in place was difficult and frustrating. The heatsink fills the entire width of the case, touching the cover.

Other Thoughts: I got this after reading other reviews of my selected CPU (AMD 8320) stating the stock fan was noisy and not as good. Although I never used the stock fan to see how bad it would be, overall, I'm glad I got this.

StarTech USBMBADAPT2 2 Port USB Motherboard Header Adapter
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 week to 1 month

4 out of 5 eggs Does what it is supposed to. 01/06/2014

This review is from: StarTech USBMBADAPT2 2 Port USB Motherboard Header Adapter

Pros: Provides two internal USB connections for embedding flash drives. The price was decent.

Cons: The USB ports are really tight. When adding a drive, it felt like it was bending the brackets the adapter was mounted into. When I tried to remove a drive, the entire adapter came out.

Other Thoughts: I bought this to install a small USB flash drive inside my case, to boot the operating system off of. It works and will serve its purpose, but caution needs to be taken when adding or removing a drive. It felt like it would pop the entire bracket off the motherboard when adding a drive.

Rosewill Blackbone Black Steel / Plastic ATX Mid Tower Computer Case
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 week to 1 month

5 out of 5 eggs Attractive and affordable case 01/06/2014

This review is from: Rosewill Blackbone Black Steel / Plastic ATX Mid Tower Computer Case

Pros: In opening the box, I was impressed with the packing and quality of the case. It didn't have any dents or scuffs, as if I was the first person to ever touch it. I love the matte black colour, as it looks classy. The included screws are all in black as well, so the only non-black on the whole case will be the motherboard faceplate. There is plenty of room inside for the components I plan to add. The fans are great and quiet as well.

Cons: Removing the front 5 1/4" cover was a pain to figure out. It wasn't documented in the included paperwork, nor could I find anything online. Just a minor cut on my knuckle trying to pry it out. Also, the front eSATA port doesn't seem to work; plugged in a drive that worked on other systems, and it was never recognised. But, this isn't a deal-breaker to me, as I can get by without it, and it frees up another internal SATA connection.

Other Thoughts: I plan on turning this into a home server running virtual machines. I don't expect to have any problems with it, after my initial set up is complete.
