Thermaltake Commander G42 Black ATX Mid Tower Gaming Computer Case (CA-1B5-00M1WN-00)
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 day to 1 week

Pros: Easy to work with, great airflow, larger size tower. Had originally planned my build with a smaller case, but that case limited everything on my build, so I went with this one. Was a great choice. So easy to install spare hard drives and extra accessories, also great locations for the usb 3.0; works like a charm.

Cons: Only issue I have, and sadly it will cost an egg because of the potential problem it can cause:
The fan cable for the front fan is too short to reach the motherboard. Not sure if that's a problem with my ASUS board, or the case's cable. This is a problem because, if you are doing enough, the hard drive COULD overheat. I have a great cooling system though so I'm not TOO worried, but this should be looked into.

Other Thoughts: Great for a budget gaming computer. A little larger than I expected, and a little heavy, but it's so easy to work with, and the side window is also pretty epic, as I love to game in the dark! Really glad I went with this case, and cannot wait to see what I can add to my already pretty awesome build!

Cooler Master Hyper 212 EVO - CPU Cooler with 120 mm PWM Fan
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 day to 1 week

5 out of 5 eggs Pretty cool, but... 07/01/2014

This review is from: Cooler Master Hyper 212 EVO - CPU Cooler with 120 mm PWM Fan

Pros: With my purchasing an FX8350, this was basically a requirement to replace the stock cooler. The price is really great for this item, and it works wonders.

Cons: It's huge, bulky, hard to install. This is my first computer that I've built, and it took me about an hour to figure out how to install. After a while I got it, but the instructions were super confusing. Also doesn't fit very well in my case, less than a millimeter of room left over between this and the side of my case, had to adjust a fan location.

Other Thoughts: This is a must for higher end builds using stronger processors, but if it's your first time building a computer, be wary, it's not the easiest thing to install.

APEVIA X-TROOPER Junior Series X-TRPJR-RD Black / Red Steel MicroATX Mid Tower Computer Case
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 month to 1 year

Pros: Great compact case, nice window, easy to work with.
Bought this for my current computer building project as a friend configured most of the parts to buy. Haven't had issues with parts so far. The side panel window looks awesome too.

Cons: It IS a mid tower, so it limits the parts you can use, especially on video cards. Not really a con, but...that's still the only real down side to this case.

Other Thoughts: Really great case to start with for your first building project. Decent price, nice size, and so far I'm enjoying it...Haven't run it yet though as I'm still buying parts for this build...
