Thermaltake V3 Black AMD Edition VL800P1W2N Black / Red SECC / Plastic ATX Mid Tower Computer Case
  • neweggOwned For: more than 1 year

Pros: -Small form factor
-Great for budget building
-Looks (if you are an AMD fan)
-Plastic Hard Drive retention clips are flimsy, but secure.

Cons: -Built Cheap
-Tight fit if using full ATX
-Cable routing can be tough
-Looks (if you are an Intel fan)
-Not for a hardcore gaming rig
-Cooling can be an issue if you dont know what your doing. Takes a bit of work, but worth it once done

Other Thoughts: For Under $60.00, this case is exactly what you would expect. Many say that it is cheap and flimsy...I would have to argue the flimsy part. Cheap, yes, flimsy, only the side panel when not installed. If you are looking to save a bit of space, then this case will work great, but be aware that, if you plan on utilizing larger form factor components, then you may as well forget this case. I was able to make this build work for what I have, but it took a lot of finesse, and a great deal of time and patience. Here is what I am currentl running:

Mobo - Biostar TA990FX
CPU - AMD FX-8150 W/Antec Kuhler H2O 620
GPU - 2 (Crossfire) x Asus HD 7770-DCT
PSU - Azza 1000W 80 Plus Platinum
Hard Drive - WD Caviar Black 2 TB
SSD - Intel 520 Series 180GB
Optical Drive - Pioneer BD-206
RAM - Corsair Dominator GT 8GB (2 x 4GB) W/Cooliing fans
Fans - 2 x Scythe Slim 1600rpm fans

Note: I still have room for one more Scythe Slim 120mm fan, and one "Standard" 120mm fan in the access panel. Also, measure your Graphics Card/s before installing. My cards are of a smaller form factor, so you may run into some space issues with a larger card/s.

Just take your time, and this case can be really nice. This is a cheaper case, so dont start comparing apples to oranges, or you will be disappointed.

If you are up for a challenge, buy this and build it. You will save money in the long run, and have a rig that you can be proud of. Just take your time.

Pros: Great quality. Easy to istall. Fan works well.

Cons: Fan is a bit louder than expected, but not so much that I would call it just know that it's there. Directions for installing the fan may not be clear for those with minimal computer building experience.

Other Thoughts: Wish that the manufacture packaging was better, as well as the inclusion of more clear directions for the assembley of the fan. This was not that much of an issue for me, but for those that have never installed RAM or other computer hardware, this could be an issue.

Pros: This is a very well made PS. Lets start with the packaging. The packaging that is comes in i brilliant. It has got like a hologram look to it, which makes me feel happy. Next is build quality. The moment you remove it from the packagem you know that this is a quality product. Once you set it up and run it, it is a real monster....this thing wont even break a sweat. I love it!!!!

Cons: None that I can think of. Solid, well built, powerful, and a great cons here!

Other Thoughts: The modular connectors, as stated in another review, seem a bit cheap, but I have not had any issues with them, so I cannot deduct an egg for that.
