Xigmatek MIDGARD II CCC-AM36BS-U01 Black Steel + Aluminum and Aluminum Mesh Bezel ATX Mid Tower Computer Case
  • Owned For: 1 month to 1 year

Pros: The case is stylish and understated. The interior is well designed with with good cable management. The top bay is designed for a slim-line drive so I installed my old Sony slot loading DVD-RW and it looks great. The case comes with two case fans, but I usually like to use better fans, so not a con for me. I was able to shoehorn my Corsair H-100 into the top of the case, but it took some work. Once I installed the radiator inside underneath the top of the case I had to replace the back case fan with a Yate Loon 120 X 20 MM fan to make it fit. I have a pair of Corsair SP120 Quiet Edition fans on the top of the case blowing in. I also installed two Cougar 140 MM silent intake fans on the side panel, with a DEMCiflex 140 X 280 magnetic filter over them to keep out the dust. Case temps are about 2 C above ambient and the processor is running at 37 C under load and it is quiet! I've used the top mounted external port for 2.5" or 3.5" hard drives several times and it works well.

Cons: The case was just a little too tight for the H-100. I had to bend the clips on the top filter out and shave a little off the back of the rear fan to get the top to sit down properly. The screws that came with the case for the slim drive were too short so I had to order some more.

Other Thoughts: MSI Z77A-G43 LGA 1155
Intel Core i5-3570K running at stock speed
Flor now using Intel HD 4000 graphics
G.SKILL Ripjaws Series 8GB (2 x 4GB) DDR3 1600
Corsair Force 3 240 GB SSD
2 SAMSUNG Spinpoint F3 HD103SJ 1TB hard drives in RAID 1 as my data drive
Newegg rocks!

ABIT IP35-E LGA 775 Intel P35 ATX Intel Motherboard
  • Owned For: 1 day to 1 week

5 out of 5 eggs Good board for the money 07/09/2007

This review is from: ABIT IP35-E LGA 775 Intel P35 ATX Intel Motherboard

Pros: Stable and well laid out. Great board for the price.

Cons: No RAID or Firewire. Wish it either had more than 1 IDE connection or more SATA connectors.

SAMSUNG 206BW Black 20
  • Owned For: 1 week to 1 month

Pros: This display is as good as any I've ever viewed. After my MAG Innovision 20" monitor died I bought this one and I've been pleasantly surprised. Text is easy to read even down to 6 points with ClearType enabled at the default 1680 X 1050 resolution. Graphics are gorgeous and there is no smearing effect with movies like I have with my Westinghouse LCD TV.

Cons: I suppose it would be nice to have a vertical adjustment. This isn't a factor for me as I attached it directly to the back of my rolltop desk.
