Rosewill FBM-02 - Dual-Fan Micro ATX Mini Tower Computer Case
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: 1 week to 1 month

5 out of 5 eggs My GF's PC 09/12/2016

This review is from: Rosewill FBM-02 - Dual-Fan Micro ATX Mini Tower Computer Case

Pros: -Compact, fits perfectly a MicroATX (MATX) motherboard.
-Plenty of air circulation, quiet performance if you have the right components.
-Great quality build, ideal for filthy casuals with one GPU and Air CPU Coolers (Evo 212) ;)
-Nice aesthetics.

Cons: -The power light reaches like 10 feet across the room. (Surprisingly, it bothers only me)
-Only USB 2.0 on front panel (The motherboard compensates with 3.0, though)
-Power Supply on top, but the power supply does not get too hot.

Other Thoughts: Before changing our Case (well, my girlfriend's PC), I had an old PC my dad gave me back from his basement. Those old white PC cases that slowly turn yellow with time, unless you take care of it. Played endless hours with Morrowind, Counter-Strike Source, Half Life 3, etc. I replaced the old Windows XP driven hardware. I upgraded the parts, but the case didn't have the proper air flow, and caused the PC to throttle and it would freeze in some games. Now pretty quiet with the new Case. Rosewill is doing a good job. My girlfriend can play City Skyline for hours now.

Specs:
GIGABYTE GA-H81M LGA 1150
Intel G3258 3.2GHz
Cooler Master Evo 212
Sapphire Radeon HD7870 2GB
Corsair Vengeance 8GB
Baracuda 1TB 7200RPM
WD 500GB 7200RPM
LG DVD-RW
Corsair CX600 PSU

Seagate Desktop HDD ST1000DM003 1TB 64MB Cache SATA 6.0Gb/s 3.5

Pros: Quiet, fast and realible.

Possibly one of the best HDD you can buy for the buck.

This is sure not going to dissapoint you.

Cons: It's an HDD.

Other Thoughts: This is best for gamers who go on budget. Even for office work, this HDD doesn't take much time to load and unload. That's what she said.

SAPPHIRE Radeon HD 7870 GHz Edition DirectX 11 11199-19CPO 2GB 256-Bit GDDR5 PCI Express 3.0 CrossFireX Support Video Card
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: 1 week to 1 month

Pros: -First the Radeon HD 7870 GHz edition did not disappoint me. It run well, fast, not too expensive like most cards.
-Play all games on high/ultra settings.
-Bought it for 149.99$ refurbished.
-Sapphire's PCB is smaller then most 7870's out there.

Cons: I don't know if this is from manufacturing or because it is refurbished, but when the fans ramp'd up, there would be a vibration coming from the heatsink.
I am pretty sure I can adjust the cooling fans, heatsink, wires, etc. To stop the vibration. Still haven't had time.

Other Thoughts: I'm pretty it's just the wire's touching the heatsink's plastic part.
