Fractal Design Core 1000 FD-CA-CORE-1000-USB3-BL Black Steel MicroATX Mid Tower Computer Case
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 week to 1 month

Pros: It's small and fits nicely beside my desk, which is good!

The case fan that comes with it is cool and quiet

Allows for 2-gpu configs with the 4 Expansion slots
Thumbscrews are easy to use

The steel body is beautiful and feels nice to hold when picking up the case

Cons: The HDD mounts in a way I've never seen before

Instruction manual doesn't tell you anything at all about how to build in the case. Heck, it doesnt even show a picture of it except on the front cover

Absolutely NO back room for cable management. If you're not getting a modular power supply, then you're gonna have a hard time with managing your cords. I recommend putting them through the optical bays

Removing the necessary things to install an optical drive was more of a challenge than it should have been

USB 3.0 header seems to not work, but that could be just a case for me and be anecdotal

Other Thoughts: I got this case for $35. Honestly, I feel like I should have only needed to pay $30. However, if you can get it for $35 or less, it's not a bad mATX case. My first build was in this case, so more experienced builders may have an easier time in this case than I did.

XFX TS Series P1550SXXB9 550W ATX12V 2.2 & ESP12V 2.91 SLI Ready CrossFire Ready 80 PLUS Bronze Certified Active PFC Power Supply
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 month to 1 year

Pros: Got this back in February when it was $26 after MIRs, and I am impressed! It's higher quality than a Corsair CX power supply. It doesn't run extremely hot, which is great!

Cons: Cable management is a little hard with this supply, but it may just be me not being good at it.

Other Thoughts: If it's at a good price, then go buy it!
