This review is from: BIOSTAR B75MU3B LGA 1155 Intel B75 SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 Micro ATX Intel Motherboard
Pros: works well, supports USB 3.0, with built in front panel header
Cons: This motherboard only carries 1-SATA 3.0/6GB/s port, which is located directly behind the only PCI-e 3.0 port..... so if you install a graphic card with even a minimal length you will have difficulty using this port with a SSD/HDD.
The way around this problem is using a SATA cable that had one 90degree angle connector and one straight connector on the opposite side. Please be advised that this motherboard comes with two bright orange SATA cables, neither one has a 90degree angle connector.
This seems like a huge over-site as a large majority of people building budge gaming rigs will be looking at this motherboard as it is very functional and performs as it needs to. however, the vast majority of gaming graphic cards are going to cover the SATA 3.0/6GB/s port
Pros: Standard CPU cooler, tower design
affordable and functional
Temps are with-in reason and will keep a stock CPU cool
Cons: I wished that it used a backplate design, the Intel pin system just doesn't feel solid and I did have to re-seat the heatsink once I had everything installed in the case seems secure now however.
Also the fan is not very quiet
Other Thoughts: Would not recommend if you're planning on OCing your CPUREAD FULL REVIEW
This review is from: RAIDMAX Vortex V4 ATX-404WY Black Steel / Plastic ATX Mid Tower Computer Case
Pros: Super Affordable little case that does exactly what you need it to. Build quality is actually not bad for the price you pay and is also very, very lightweight. The side window is a nice tough, it comes with dark tinting so you can't really see inside all that well but still, it's a nice touch.
Cons: Cable management is not really good
this is not a tooless design for optical (if your still use them) or HDD/SSD, so get your screw driver out :-)
