This review is from: NZXT Crafted Series CS-NT-VULCAN Black Steel / Plastic Gaming mATX Computer Case
Pros: Best micro case I've seen, or used. Well built, well laid out, clean looks, the buttons ports are right on top, fan controls work well, on/off button on back for fan lights, big mesh side that will take a 200mm fan, and without still gives great air flow/looks. I like to see my parts I spend so much money on too. AND, the mesh sticks out a little. The extra inch and a half or so of width is fantastic.
AND DA HANDLE! Some people don't like handles, so take it off, but it's not only apart of the looks of the case, but it works great. It's sturdy, and makes it so I can carry my whole computer in one trip. Keyboard, mouse, etc in a back pack, monitor under one arm, and case in the other. No more second trip! Huzzah!
As long as you don't take it into battle and use it as a mace, or fill your case with lead bricks, it gets the job done. My system isn't water cooled, so I'm not sure how much weight a setup would add, but the handle feels sturdy enough to handle it. The handle, handles it.
My friends are all jealous. Now that they've seen this case they all want it, but because they don't want to be copy cats with the same case they can't have it!
Cons: If you bought another micro case, you'll wish you bought this one.
Other Thoughts: It's got all the little holes for water cooling if you ever get the urge to go full Super Sayan.

Kingwin Lazer 1000 watt
ASrock Z87M Extreme
OCZ Revo Drive x4 230 gb
Pros: They worked right out of the box, plugged them in, they run at 2400 as advertised, and they're cheap! Their heat sinks are fairly compact as well, and look good!
Other Thoughts: Should have bought another set.

Revo Drive x4 230gb
Pros: It works, it was pretty inexpensive for a well built 1000 watt power supply. It's quiet! The lights are snazzy, and if you don't like them, you can turn them off. Wish it had an orange setting so it matched my case fans. I knew that buying it though!
Other Thoughts: I could have bought an 850 watt and had plenty of headroom, but I bought a 1000 watt. Never hurts to have more if you ever need it though!
Kinda wish all the crystal cube connector slots lit up even if they weren't in use just to give it a more uniform look. But not a biggie.
