This review is from: SilverStone RAVEN RV01-BW Black Steel / Plastic ATX Full Tower Computer Case
Pros: It's pretty. Pretty big. Thankfully the bottom area for the PSU is so enormous compared to most cases because my PSU STILL barely fit.
Cons: The 90° angle necessitates that you make sure your PSU connections are long enough (i7 8 pins are a great example of this).
Power/Reset buttons could have been put inside the sliding panel, considering how ridiculously sensitive they are.
Could Silverstone have been troubled to add in at least one or two more single backplane modules? It's not like they're that expensive to begin with, and only having one for hotswap functionality is just dumb.
Other Thoughts: Never noticed the blue light across the top front in pictures of the case that I've seen, but I don't think I'll be not lazy enough to disconnect that molex in ever.READ FULL REVIEW
This review is from: EVGA E758-A1 3-Way SLI (x16/x16/x8) LGA 1366 Intel X58 ATX Intel Motherboard
Pros: The I/O plate has a cushioned back side! No more snagging those things on my fingers now! Ha HA! This was the ONLY reason I got this over other i7 boards, as it's all pretty much the same specs unless you're wanting some goofy thing on yours like a speaker for a heatsink.
Cons: The heatsink that's in the way of the 8 pin makes me wonder what the people at eVGA are consuming.
Other Thoughts: The I/O plate. It's cushioned. Seriously, get this one.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: Hanns-G did a great job with this monitor. The color reproduction and brightness were a detraction at first, but after calibrating this thing, I am impressed. The OSD menu is a definite improvement over the 22" Hanns-G that I had prior to this.
No ghosting, HDMI input's great, and
Cons: My wife keeps trying to steal it from me. I have to actually move my head to follow the mouse from opposite corners of the screen.
Other Thoughts: I was wary of getting a Hanns-G monitor the first time I got one, which was a 22" that was $40 cheaper than the competition at the time (two years ago). Now I have no qualms whatsoever about continuing to purchase from this company, as they make incredibly well-done monitors for those on a budget.READ FULL REVIEW
