Pros: Fits a larger sized Micro-ATX board pretty well, Front USB 3.0 is fantastic, Front Mesh pops off easily for regular cleaning, very small form factor overall
Cons: the Hard drive cage blocks access to one of my RAM slots after a drive is installed, tall memory sticks would hit the hard drive in that location
Other Thoughts: if the hard drives could be oriented differently, either perpendicular inside the case or turned on their sides, it would make fitment a lot easier and future-proofed.
Be aware of how many wires your PSU has, the setup I built had tons of extra wires I had to cram below the DVD drive bay. There is not a lot of open space once you put everything together. (don't block the 120mm fan either!)
This review is from: VANTEC HDA-525P 3.5" to 5.25" Front Bay Converter Kit
Pros: Fits a 5.25" external bay, cheap, does the job!
Other Thoughts: this would look odd in a case that is not Black.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: This RAM works flawlessly with the Asus F2A85-M PRO motherboard in conjunction with AMD A8-5600K APU!
Cons: DDR3 RAM was so much cheaper a year ago...
Other Thoughts: just need to go into BIOS and select 1866 for speed, and I also entered in the basic 9-10-9-28 numbers and 1.5Volts, and no memory issues whatsoever, the AM2 platform does not require overclocking to maintain this RAM speed.READ FULL REVIEW
