This review is from: Fractal Design Arc Midi R2 FD-CA-ARC-R2-BL-W Black Steel ATX Mid Tower Computer Case
Pros: Great looks- neither flashy nor dull
Smoked side panel window
3 dust filters- top, front, bottom
3 140mm fans w/ speed control & dual 240mm rad support
Modular and sturdy drive cages
Clean cable management options
Cons: Drive cages are not tool-less (not a con personally)
Smoked side panel window is a little darker than I expected
Other Thoughts: I absolutely love this case. Very easy to build in with lots of hardware flexibility. I rearranged the included fans- 2 in the front and one on the bottom all as intakes, and have a Corsair H75 exhausting out the back. The smoked window looks great and is the perfect size, showing all that you want to see and nothing that you don't. Definitely the best case I've ever worked with and would recommend to anyone.READ FULL REVIEW
This review is from: Rosewill HIVE Series HIVE-550 550W Continuous @40°C,80 PLUS BRONZE Certified, Modular Design, Single +12V Rail,ATX12V v2.31/EPS12V v2.92,SLI Ready, Crossfire Ready, Active-PFC Power Supply - Retail

Model I received had all black wires as apposed to some sleeving over colored wires shown in the pictures
Very attractive price
Cons: The pci-e cables were too short to route behind the motherboard tray and back to the gpu (fan-down position in a Fractal Arc Midi R2).
Other Thoughts: Its hard to complain about anything considering what I paid for it compared to other similar power supplies. Just wish the pci-e cables had just a little more length. But it works fine so far and had the features I wanted at great bargain.

This review is from: AMD Athlon II X4 620 Propus Quad-Core 2.6GHz Socket AM3 95W Processor ADX620WFGIBOX
Pros: Bashed everything I've thrown at it so far... I've downloaded a game, copied music from a cd, and played Oblivion maxed out all at the same time. Plus its the cheapest quad core out there. Love it.
Cons: I can't really think of any- it does exactly what its supposed to do at a fantastic price. Haven't tried to OC it yet so I can't comment there.
