This review is from: Fractal Design Core 1000 Black MATX Mini Tower Computer Case
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.READ FULL REVIEW
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!READ FULL REVIEW
