5 out of 5 eggs Great, easy to use case 07/26/2014

This review is from: Xigmatek Aquila White Steel Micro-ATX Cube Chassis CCD-14AWW-U01

Pros: This was a fantastic case to build in. I used an H100i and it fit just fine up top. Along with a 780Ti and a 775W Toughpower this system is humming along. The front fan does have a light orange glow but it is not bright at all.

Cons: If you use a cooler like the H100i you will not be able to utilize the 5 1/4 drive bay. This wasnt a problem for me as I use an external BluRay drive but some might see it as a turn off.

Cooling is okay but not spectacular.

Other Thoughts: If you are looking for something to build a great gaming PC in look no further. This is one of the more unique cases I have built in and it has gotten several compliments on looks alone in the last few days.

Pros: Simple setup.
Works well with passive extenders.
Has not failed me in the least!
8GB mem/32GB SSD/Celeron = extremely cheap backbone for your hash farm.

Cons: None. These boards have been rock solid for me.

Other Thoughts: I have 3 running 6 cards each (280x, 750Ti, 7870 - 6 of each) and these boards have been nothing but great.

Pros: Extremely fast! I bought 3 of these to run in a RAID-0 setup for a LAN box. (sgo2 f, 1.5TB R-0, GTX 260 Silverstone 700, 1066 super pi mem)
Three of these sustain 240Mb a second with bursts well above 350.

Cons: None. For the price, you cannot get a better drive. The .11 series is seriously fast.
