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.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: - Layout is good
- 6 Intel SATA 6G ports
- Audio seems to be better than on my previous 1155 Asus board (I used to have a speaker hum with the old board, but it's non-existent now)
Cons: - Yes, it has 2 PCIe x16 slots, but you're going to be asking for trouble if you use 2 double-wide cards for xFire or SLI (if you could even get them to fit - haven't tried / it's not an issue for me since I don't plan on running 2 cards)
Other Thoughts: - M.2 SSD's aren't available (yet) for the riser card
- Antenna cable isn't included if you wanted to use a mPCIe wireless card
- Only 3 case fan headers
Pros: 32GB in a quad-channel kit
Cons: Not really a "con," but the BIOS didn't read the speed of the memory correctly on its own / had to set it to 1600READ FULL REVIEW
