SilverStone SST-PS07B Black Steel / Plastic with Aluminum Accent MicroATX Mini Tower Computer Case
  • Owned For: 1 month to 1 year

Pros: Nice build quality - fit and finish is top notch. The filters are a must for dust enviroments, or when sitting on the floor of a house with pet hair.

Cons: I had a problem with the front panel USB ports: this part MUST come from SilverStone, not a commercial part. It took many phone calls and emails, and about a month later, I finally received a good-faith replacement (without sending anything back). The USB ports would not sufficiently power an external drive. Plugged a dual USB3.0 breakout cable directly into motherboard, and all was well.

The second problem I had was there were no usable mounting provisions for an SSD on the drive cage. I ended up removing the cage, and drilling a few custom holes to mount an SSD directly to the bottom of the case.

Other Thoughts: This was a build for a SOHO customer, and I wanted to be sure they had a professional looking case. Fit the bill there, but embarrassed I had to later return to replace the front panel USB ports (I had to deliver before the replacement arrived)

Arctic Silver 5 High-Density Polysynthetic Silver Thermal Compound AS5-3.5G
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: more than 1 year

Pros: Yes, this stuff has been around for years, and perhaps that contributes (or COULD contribute) to inflated review rankings, but all of that is for a reason: it's good stuff!

I prefer the low viscosity of this vs others - flattens easier via single dab method, and able to be finger spread as well.

Cons: Cost

CORSAIR CX series CX430 430W ATX12V v2.3 80 PLUS BRONZE Certified Active PFC Power Supply
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 week to 1 month

Pros: Amazing price - can't find a more reputable and quality power supply for basic builds than this.

If you aren't running SLI, or 6 hard drives, there's absolutely NO reason to go overkill on power supplies. Bigger is not better - best to get a supply that most efficient within your load band.

Cons: Not enough to knock it an egg, because I know some people need this, but I really had no use for the multitude of MOLEX and 4-pin PCI connectors

Other Thoughts: Will buy again! Try to get it on sale.
