This review is from: APEX TX-381-C Black Steel Micro ATX Tower Computer Case
Pros: Inexpensive, plus I got it with free shipping. Well ventilated. Plenty of bays. Attractive.
Cons: Sharp metal. Others have stated this, but I'm kind of slow and in my impatience to remove the case from the carton, I received a nice sliced thumb for my efforts that is as painful as any paper cut I've had. BE CAREFUL.
Other Thoughts: I bought this case to build a small computer for my youngest son. My oldest seems to dominate "their" computer and I had heard enough.

All of these parts have been accumulating over time and were crying out for a cheap case to begin playing online RPG games and yet another copy of folding@home. After shopping around a bit, I came upon this case at newegg, and they were running a promotion, free shipping. 24.99 and these various parts would be up and running again. All I added to the case was an 80mm fan in the front in order to help keep a rather crowded interior cool. All items went in and fired up on the initial post.

This review is from: COOLMAX CX-300(Silver) 300W ATX v2.01 0.7@230VAC PFC Power Supply
Pros: I installed this power supply in a customer's HP. It fired right up with no problems. I let it run continuously for 2 days and it operated as it should. Very decent price.
Other Thoughts: Should be fine as a replacement PS in any Dell, HP, Compaq etc.READ FULL REVIEW
