This review is from: RAIDMAX Cobra ATX-502WBG Black Steel / Plastic ATX Mid Tower Computer Case
Pros: Good design, ample room, lots of fan space w/fan filters on the top and rear. If the product color scheme was black/green as advertised I would have given it 5 eggs.
Cons: The reason I was so set on purchasing this case over more popular options was the green interior plate and green LED fan. However, the one shipped to me had a white plate/LED. I am seriously bummed. I purchased the unit on the last day a promotional rebate was available and it is now out of stock through newegg. Not wanted to having to go through the return process I am stuck either dealing with it, or having to buy a separate, green-led front fan - which with the case design is a pain in the rear to access.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: Cheap, good for basic use.
Cons: Has not been reliable for me. Meant for much more generic usage I guess.
Other Thoughts: When my last computer died, I bought a pre-built HP computer (I upgraded to a 750w psu) and it had this mobo inside. When I updated the bios the computer would no longer boot whatsoever. I had an identical motherboard available to me and I am currently using it, without the updated bios.
After upgrading my gfx card to a high end one my internet connection has gone to ship. Even with a strong wireless connection or a straight wired connection my internet cuts in and out, my online games lag-spurt, and I am constantly dropping skype calls. No other computer in the house has an issue, and I have narrowed the issue down the the mobo. I have no idea why it is failing but I've replaced everything else. Even a newER psu.
Pros: If you search, you can find the proper drivers for this product at sybausa's website. Google "sy-pex20136 driver" and it'll bring you right to it. Once you've done that, the product actually works.
Cons: The driver disc was worthless. It didnt run with autoplay and I was unable to find the drivers by searching the disc.
I had a hell of a time trying to figure out why my (win 7) computer would not recognize it. I also had issues getting certain usb devices to be recognized after I finally got it working.
Other Thoughts: I've got my usb 3.0 ports. This probably deserves a better rating but it was such a hassle to install that I just can't bring myself to do it. If you have any issues go to their website as i mentioned above. You'll save yourself the annoyance and you might end up with a higher opinion of this product.READ FULL REVIEW
