This review is from: APEX MI-008 Black Steel Mini-ITX Tower Computer Case 250W Power Supply
Pros: Awesome price point, great look.
Cons: The thickness of the metal makes for an easily bendable case. The weight of the power supply puts it leaning downward at an angle making for a tight fit for heatsink in an already tight space. Unboxing the case I noticed a corner was bent but I was able to bend it back in place rather than go thru an RMA.
Other Thoughts: For the price I don't expect a top notch case, but the power supply holder could have been done better to prevent the sagging.READ FULL REVIEW
This review is from: Scythe SCKZT-1000 80mm Kozuti CPU Cooler
Pros: the fan is a great pairing for the size of the heat pipe and makes very effiecent use of the air flow. its very quiet even at a moderate speed. keeps my i5 2500 at 43c and 55c under average load.
Cons: The installation was not as easy as it could be, and instructions were lacking. The screw holes to mount the bracket were filled with some dried oil from the manufacturing process making the screws VERY difficult to screw in place. When doing this, make sure you use a GOOD screw driver and take your time, otherwise you'll risk stripping the screws.
Other Thoughts: This was perfect for my ITX build with only about 45mm of clearance for the hseatsink and fan.READ FULL REVIEW
This review is from: Rosewill RCX-SC1U 70mm 2 Ball CPU Cooler
Pros: Keeps your junk cold
Cons: pretty loud
Other Thoughts: I wouldn't have this in a system you've got on your desk or near you, probably best for a box hidden away, make sure you adjust your MB for this fan otherwise it's a little rocket.READ FULL REVIEW
