This review is from: DIYPC HTPC-MiniCube-Gold Gold Aluminum Mini-ITX Tower Computer Case
Pros: -It looks amazing.
-The gold is not shiny or gaudy..It's a nice matte-ish look to it.
-Doesn't look like a Klingon warship or disco party.
-Clever placement of power buttons and I/O.
-Actually mini ITX. It's tiny. It's beautiful.
Cons: I'm honestly not sure what size of fan will fit on the side panel. I bought 80mm Noctua fans and also purchased some silent Gelid 70mm fans..None of them fit. I ended up using strips of rubber and superglue and just stood up my two noctua fans as an exhaust.
-It's a little thin..but I don't expect something insane at this price point.
-I wish that it had the same fully vented panel as the red revision/version of this case.
Other Thoughts: Buy a SFX power supply. You CAN fit a full ATX power supply but things are really tight and the air flow is restricted, even if it's fully modular. An SFX power supply(Make sure it comes with the ATX bracket!!) will improve airflow, but more importantly, it'll give you room to mount some fans if you figure out the size...It will also give you more room to play with bigger coolers!
Also a final warning/suggestion. This is meant for low power/HTPC builds. You can throw in some pretty powerful components in this tiny babycase, but make sure you have proper ventilation/high quality components. If you're throwing in a gaming rig, please do yourself a favor and go SSD only for this..Or a laptop 2.5 inch HDD..I had a full size HDD in here but replaced it with two SSDs..It's honestly not worth it because it vibrates, creates extra heat, and is old news.
-Silverstone 450w fully modular 80+ Gold SFX power supply
-EVGA 750ti SC
-i3 4150 3.5ghz
-Noctua L9i Low profile cooler
Pros: -Great switches.
-it contends with more expensive keyboards that I own in terms of build quality and performance.
-Lovely MX Blue switches. This is for the clicky clack noisy lovers.
-Heavy/doesn't move around.
-Braided micro-usb cable.
-Comes with a USB/PS2 adapter and a keycap remover.
Other Thoughts: If you're on the fence about entering the wonderful world of mechanical keyboards, this is definitely a great entry level board and can handle quite a bit of abuse and at its price range, the build quality is astounding. It's also a dream to type on.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: -Looks awesome: Not gaudy or a laser-cyborg-disco look..but a subtle robot sexy. You can adjust the colors on three different spots on the mouse.
-Build quality is amazing.
-Adjustable height and swivel/curve.
-Easy software to use, DPI Settings on the fly.
-Five different mouse profiles on the fly.
-Great sensor and response.
-Braided cable..though honestly, I wish it would break in faster/not be so stiff.
-The packaging/presentation is second to none..Comes with a really cool carrying case that's made of what feels like a wetsuit material. Super nice!
Cons: None, though I wish companies would make MATTE white mouses. While this isn't overly reflective, I love the feel of matte or softfeel rubber or whatever they call it.
Other Thoughts: The software looks like it was designed by a five year old, five years ago. It looks like snipopota. Mind you it's very light, functional and definitely does the job.
I guess what I'm trying to say is that the aesthetic look of the software doesn't match the incredible attention to detail that Tt Sports took in the beautiful packaging and look of the mouse.
