This review is from: EVGA GTX 750 Ti Backplate Model 100-BP-3751-B9
Pros: It is a nice plate that makes the graphics card look much nicer. It is a plus with most cases coming with various windowed or vented panels to give you a view of it and a lot of your other parts. It has a great feel to it.
Cons: It did not come with the screws necessary for me to install it, so I never installed it.
Other Thoughts: I ended up getting another graphics card anyways so this is a moot point. But it was a fairly big let down that the screws weren't there.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: -A great sized case. Very spacious and I appreciate the built-in capability for cable management.
-Two trays for SSDs is a bonus
-Great ventilation. Allows for a lot of air intake and exhaust.
-Quality of case feels great/sturdy
-Built-in fans aren't loud!
Cons: -Thumb screws for side panels feel too stiff. Overall, thumb screws, for me, did not go in or out smoothly with me twisting with my fingers. They are large and easy to get a grip of, but just wouldn't twist well at all.
Other Thoughts: It isn't a windowed case, but that's obvious. If you want that, look elsewhere. But it is vented enough on the side you can see some colors if LEDs are used. Overall, a great case minus the thumb screws being problematic for me. I am able to screw and unscrew it, and maybe I'm being nit picky, but when I think of a thumb screw, I expect that I can use my fingers to screw or unscrew it. That's my only con. Otherwise good case for what I was looking for cost wise. I personally am not the best cable management person, so I rather not see my ugly mess. I see the blue hue from the front fans and that's great/fine by me. I would recommend for most if you don't NEED a windowed panel. I did consider the bequiet! case for the quiet factor, but the fans on this case aren't loud at all.READ FULL REVIEW
This review is from: D-Link DWA-582 AC1200 Wi-Fi PCI Express Adapter
Pros: This was a last minute purchase. The rig I was building had no built in wifi connectivity or bluetooth connectivity, but thought it would be nice to finally build a rig that had it. I've heard good things about D-Link, so I went with this. I don't use it to connect via wifi. I plug in via ethernet for better speeds. However, having it as an option is nice, plus the amount of bluetooth peripherals I have is through the roof.
Other Thoughts: It is a good option for those looking to have Wifi on their rig but don't have any other means internally to fulfill that itch. Bluetooth is great. I would recommend for anyone who needs a solution to a similar predicament.READ FULL REVIEW
