DIYPC D480-BK-Window Black SPCC ATX Mid Tower Computer Case

5 out of 5 eggs A very good value! 03/24/2016

This review is from: DIYPC D480-BK-Window Black SPCC ATX Mid Tower Computer Case

Pros: This case has a nice roomy interior that allows enough room to run SLI or crossfire and water cooling, if needed. The power supply is mounted upside down in the bottom of the case, which prevents the fan in the PSU from blowing on your video card(s). The internal fan controller is nice. I have not heard a sound out of this case. I am not sure why some people complain about fan noise.

Cons: There is only mounting available for 1 SSD and two large platter hard drives.

Other Thoughts: This is the best value I have seen in this price range.

My Rig:

MSI 970 GTX Video Card
i5 - 4690K CPU
Corsair H50 AIO Water Cooler
AsRock Z87 Extreme 4 Motherboard
2400MHZ Gskill Sniper Ram 16GB
Samsung 128 GB SSD
3 TB Seagate HD

4 out of 5 eggs A good board for the price. 03/04/2016

This review is from: ASRock H97M Pro4 LGA 1150 Intel H97 HDMI SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 Micro ATX Intel Motherboard

Pros: A micro ATX board that can Turbo clock a 1150 series chip easily with the provided ASROCK software. Installation was easy.

Cons: *** Crossfire only, but I knew that before I bought it. The board does not come with any mounting screws and only two Sata III cables. This board can only handle up to 1600MHZ DDR3 Ram. This is why I took one egg off. I have had any real issues with the board functioning or posting.

Other Thoughts: My Rig:

G.SKILL Ripjaws X Series 16GB (2 x 8GB) 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM DDR3 1600 (PC3 12800)
ASRock H97M Pro4 LGA 1150 Intel H97 HDMI SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 Micro ATX Intel Motherboard
Intel i5-4690K Devil's Canyon CPU
MSI GTX 970 4G
Corsair 500M Power Supply

Pros: This drive is cheap. If you have a need for a nice roomy drive to store media on, this is it. So far the drive has been very reliable. This drive is faster than the Toshiba 3GB drive I have. It came with a nice new label, and looked brand new.

Cons: None that I can think of so far. It is a mechanical hard drive. It works great!

Other Thoughts: I wish the cost of larger SSDs would drop to a reasonable level.
