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.

DIYPC D480-BK-Window Black Case
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:

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.READ FULL REVIEW
