DIYPC Solar-M1-R Black/Red SECC ATX Mid Tower USB 3.0 Gaming Computer Case w/ 2 x 120mm Red Fans
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 week to 1 month

5 out of 5 eggs Great little case, try it why don't you? 02/03/2014

This review is from: DIYPC Solar-M1-R Black/Red SECC ATX Mid Tower USB 3.0 Gaming Computer Case w/ 2 x 120mm Red Fans

Pros: +Excellent cable management compartment behind motherboard
+Access port behind CPU for heatsink/fan installation
+Plenty of front USB ports
+Quiet, decent fans keep things pretty cool
+Very subdued lighting and tinted window keep things from being ridiculously bright
+Sturdy, but very lightweight, and very, very few sharp edges
+Card readers! That work! And just SD and MicroSD, so you don't have a bunch of pointless holes for cards you never use
+The box it comes in says "BE GAMER" on the side. It's great.

Cons: -Limited room inside the case. Makes hard drives difficult to manage with the PSU being right there. It's small enough to carry under one arm, though, and lightweight to match. Bit of a toss-up.
-Some bits of metal arrived bent. Thin enough that I could bend them back, though, but thick enough not to snap off easily.
-Expansion slot covers have to be permanently removed. By twisting. Recommend you do so before installing your motherboard.
-No additional fan slots, although so far the case seems to be keeping remarkably cool.
-The box it comes in says "BE GAMER" on the side. It's terrible.

Other Thoughts: If you need a case for a first-time build, a little gaming rig, a mid-range machine, or even for taking to LAN parties to show off to your friends, this thing will do the job. It ain't perfect, but it has lots of features that make it worth getting, and the quality doesn't match the low, low price. Which is to say, it's pretty nice. Also, it says "BE GAMER" on the box. Try it, you might like it.

Manufacturer Recertified OCZ Vertex 2 OCZSSD2-2VTX100G 2.5
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 day to 1 week

Pros: Reasonably priced
Pretty fast
Looks nice
Manufacturer's tech support fast and knowledgeable

Cons: Doesn't work properly on Haswell (LGA 1150) based Intel motherboards, at least not with the onboard Intel SATA controller.

Other Thoughts: I might have found that out before buying it, but I just got it on impulse more than anything. It's sped up my dad's old PC spectacularly, though, and seems to be working well. My machine would only read from it intermittently; I could potentially get an expansion slot SATA controller and use it in mine, but it was easier just to buy another SSD instead.

BYTECC Bracket-35225 2.5 Inch HDD/SSD Mounting Kit For 3.5
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 day to 1 week

Pros: Inexpensive, fits two drives, includes plenty of screws.

Cons: Holes didn't align properly with my (admittedly super cheap) case. Probably fault of the case, though.
