Corsair Carbide Series 200R Black Steel / Plastic compact ATX Mid Tower Case
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 month to 1 year

5 out of 5 eggs Corsair quality for cheap 06/18/2014

This review is from: Corsair Carbide Series 200R Black Steel / Plastic compact ATX Mid Tower Case

Pros: Its Corsair

Tons of airflow options if you buy your own fans

Sturdy construction

Cons: Not enough fans included

Other Thoughts: Its Corsair! I used this case to build for a family member. If you haven't built in a Corsair, you need to try it. My personal computers have the Corsair 600T and 650D cases and they are amazing, and the price reflects it. They come with all kinds of goodies like rubber washers for the fan screws to keep it quiet. Easy to take out fan filters. Open airflow and plenty of space to build in.

This case however is on the cheaper side, so know what your getting. Don't expect a super amazing case. Yes its great at its price point, but don't expect it to be the same as a $200 case. Still, this case has plenty of space, fan holes if you buy your fans. The drive bay layout is nice. Its solid and sleek looking.

If your in the market for a case that has the mentioned qualities, look no further. You won't be disappointed.

G.SKILL Value Series 8GB (2 x 4GB) 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM DDR3 1333 (PC3 10666) Desktop Memory Model F3-10666CL9D-8GBNT
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 month to 1 year

Pros: G.Skill brand is solid
Good warranty
Good speeds
Works as advertised with ASUS board

Cons: No heat spreader, but thats only cosmetic.

Price has gone up recently, could be cheaper (remember two years ago when 8GB of ram was $40)

DDR 1600 would be nice at this price point.

Other Thoughts: I use to only buy Kingston, Samsung and Corsair memory. A few years back I thought I would try G.Skill because their speeds and prices were enticing. Good thing I did, because I have only had good experiences with them.

I have built 3 different computers since and used G.Skill for all of them. They have been rock solid for each build. That's not to say the other brands are bad, far from it. But the price and speeds of most G.Skill sticks are at the same level the more expensive ones are. So, if you have to buy your name brand because its on your "certified vendor list", go ahead, but you'll be missing out on some amazing products for cheaper. Also make sure you look at the warranties provided, G.Skills is fantastic.

If your in the market for some speedy memory and don't want to drop a ton of money, G.Skill has some great options.

Microsoft Windows 7 Home Premium SP1 64-bit
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: more than 1 year

5 out of 5 eggs Windows 7 is better than 8, 8.1..... 06/18/2014

This review is from: Microsoft Windows 7 Home Premium SP1 64-bit

Pros: Its Windows 7
Has the start button and menu!
Stable, fast, Direct X goodies

Cons: Not as Good as Windows 8 for tablet use, but who cares about tablets?

Other Thoughts: WIndows XP was flagship for what seemed like forever. Vista had some issues at the beginning, but was fixed in the first service pack. Windows 7 was a revamped attempt at what Vista was supposed to be and was a much better OS and is still the choice in my opinion. Windows 8 is a mystery to myself and many others. Why create a computer OS for tablet use?

Not going to get into the theological debate about the decisions Microsoft has made, but if your on a PC, with a mouse and keyboard, you want Windows 7. Get the 64-bit version because you get options with hardware usage and majority of applications and software are supporting it now. I will skip Windows 8 until they bring the start button and menu bars back.

Power users don't want to use our fingers, we want expensive peripherals to do it for us (thats you mouse and keyboard).
