Cooler Master HAF 912 - Mid Tower Computer Case with High Airflow, Supporting up to Six 120mm Fans and USB 3.0
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: 1 day to 1 week

3 out of 5 eggs CM Case is Inexpensive model, good for typical home use 02/07/2016

This review is from: Cooler Master HAF 912 - Mid Tower Computer Case with High Airflow, Supporting up to Six 120mm Fans and USB 3.0

Pros: Inexpensive, solid, smaller, takes less room then larger tower, plenty of room inside for general computer builds and use.

Cons: Not near as good as next model up. No slide out trays, except for putting rails on hard drives. Alignment with motherboard bad, which causes video card misalignment.

Other Thoughts: Motherboard does not fit properly, a bit off so that very hard to get motherboard screws in, and causes Video card to mis-align, not seating properly. My CM HAF 932 PC Case (I think that is my personal PC Case model) is wonderful. I use that for gaming and my personal use. I bought this new case to upgrade the family/wife's computer. While it is good quality, the alignment is bad with the motherboard screws almost being forced into the standoffs to hold it down. I will try working on it some more. Disappointed in the alignment problems. I have been working with computers since I got a degree in electronics in 1980. My wife wanted a white case too but found that everyone wanted much more money if it wasn't black paint. The other white cases that were less expensive were lesser quality. I can paint it too. But the case alignment is really troublesome! Huge hassle to send back and forth so I will try to make it align properly.

CORSAIR Enthusiast Series TX650 650W ATX12V/EPS12V 80 PLUS BRONZE Certified Active PFC High Performance Power Supply
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: more than 1 year

Pros: good for mid level performance computer, gaming, decent quality

Cons: only lasted two years, before needing replacement, fan stopped working, and power to video card problem

Other Thoughts: Set to Corsair for replacement, paid for express replacement,. got no tracking number, talked with chat to Corsair, they said the TX-650 is on backorder. They should just send out either a better or equivalent model, instead of making people wait for an extra 2 weeks, especially since I I paid extra for express service.

TP-LINK TL-WDR4300 Dual Band Wireless N750 Router, Gigabit, 2.4GHz 300Mbps+5GHz 450Mbps, 2 USB port, IP QoS, Wireless On/Off Switch
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: 1 month to 1 year

Pros: Good price decent performance easy to use if you stick to basics. Good price, as some routers with same or similar performance are much pricier. After 8 months of gaming, no problems. I compared this router against an ASUS that was $200.00 more, and could not tell any difference in performance in a house with strong thick walls. Not just wood but cement, wood, plaster, etc.

Cons: 5GHZ wireless weak if not close by. Wife's computer further away from Router. So, she can only use the 2ghz signal. Wish the 5 ghz was much stronger.

Other Thoughts: If you have totally unobstructed path to receiving computer, then the signal will be good, but probably not more than 100 feet or so. That is using only what comes with it. That said, 5ghz is good if you are close with no obstructions at all. Then 2ghz will be good if the computer is in another room and reasonably close. Though I have an engineering degree and have been using PC computer for 30 years, I am still not a wizard with this equipment by any means. I just buy what I think will be good for whatever price. Anyone who needs a stronger signal, try to get the router as close to your computer as possible for wifi. If needed relocate the router plug closer. Check your firmware. IMHO
