Corsair Obsidian Series 450D Black Aluminum / Steel ATX Mid Tower Gaming Computer Case Compatible with ATX (not included) Power Supply
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: 1 week to 1 month

Pros: - Easy to build in with an ATX motherboard
- 3 fans included (wish they were 4-pin though...)
- Front fans blow directly over the video card

Cons: - My front USB ports were VERY hard to insert a couple particular thumb drives. Had to really fight to get them inserted. Thought I was going to break the ports and / or the drives...
- A *little* more space (depth) behind the motherboard to route cables would have been nice
- Needs a cable routing hole at the bottom rear of the motherboard for front USB / front panel audio cables

Other Thoughts: - Wish there was a bottom / PSU cover to help hide cables
- Offer the same case without the front 3.5" drives, and reducing the front to back dimension? (I was debating between the 450D and a S340, because it didn't have front 3.5" and was a little bit smaller, but was worried about the restrictive air flow through the front of the S340).

Individually Sleeved Cable Set for EVGA B2/G2/P2 Power Supply / PSU (Red) - EVGA 100-CR-1300-B9
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: 1 week to 1 month

Pros: - Quality is amazing, and much better (sadly) then the cables that came with the EVGA power supply in the first place.
- Red color looks sharp

Cons: - Routing the CPU 8-pin and the motherboard 24-pin cables in the back of a case is a little tricky (for good cable management) due to the fact that each cable *is* separate. This makes it harder to keep everything right where you want it. Maybe they could have sleeved the middle section of these 2 cable types to make things a little easier...
- Wish the price wasn't as high, especially since 90% of the cables aren't being used in my build (only using a CPU 8-pin, a motherboard 24-pin, and a single 8-pin + 6-pin VGA)

SilverStone Sugo Series SG02B-F-USB3.0 ABS / SECC Steel MicroATX Desktop Computer Case with 2 x USB3.0 ports (Black)
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: 1 week to 1 month

Pros: -Small footprint
- Two HDD bays
- Two 5.25" external drive bays (or one 5.25" and one 3.5" with included adapter)

Cons: - It "can" use a standard ATX PSU, but doing so will result in the loss of one, if not both, of the external drive bays. I don't even have an over-sized / overkill PSU...
- Putting any "normal" sized GPU in the first PCI-x slot on your mobo will more or less stop you from using the HDD bays... A short GPU (one that doesn't extend past the PCI-x slot...) will fix this. So would putting the GPU in your motherboard's 2nd PCI-x slot...

Other Thoughts: Not the case for me and my setup... IF you don't care about using the external drive bays (OR if you happen to have a super short PSU) and IF you're running a short GPU (OR using the 2nd PCI-x slot OR using on-board graphics), then the case seems pretty decent for the price.
