Pros: All black painted interior.
Side panels slide on and off easily enough, and are fairly rigid for such a cheap case.
120mm fan in front blows tons of air (but it is loud) and can be easily replaced with a different fan if you so desire. Thumbscrews for both side panels.
Cons: Hard drive mounting system is a bit wonky and could easily get in the way of a longer graphics card. You are limited to one of each 3.5" and 2.5" drive in this case.
No cable management capability to speak of. You could just bundle up the excess power supply wires and tie them to the top of the hard drive mounting panel.
Only one front USB 3.0 port... not a flaw that is limited to this case, sadly. The 3.0 header supports two ports, so why not make both front ports 3.0?
Only one spot for a 92mm exhaust fan in the rear (fan not included). For this reason I wouldn't put any high-powered graphics cards or hot running CPUs in this case.
Expansion card brackets are those cheesy punch-out ones, typical for a case in this price range.
No 5.25" expansion bay but anyone with functioning eyes should be able to tell that from the pictures... can't believe someone bought this case and gave it a bad review because they couldn't install a DVD drive... SMH
Other Thoughts: Good enough for a simple build or office computer, though you might want to add a slow-RPM 120mm fan and a 92mm fan to your order if you plan on using it in an office
Bought this elsewhere... Sorry Newegg :(
Packaged with plastic covering/protecting the contacts. I've seen that on video cards, but never RAM. Nice touch.
Package easy to open, no scissors required.
Other than my motherboard barking at me that my "CPU/memory changed!! Press F1 for setup, F2 to load default values and continue" when I installed this, it was smooooth sailing. I Hit F2 and I was off to the races.
Motherboard: MSI H81i LGA1150 mITX, Newegg item# N82E16813130735
Cons: None yet, I've only had it for about 6 hours but it works very well. I'll update this review if things go sour.
The random throbbing pattern of the green LEDs on the top of the RAM might be distracting for some, but I like it. It wasn't a selling point for me, but it's unique.
Other Thoughts: Avexir is a relative newcomer to the retail RAM market. They supply the RAM used in some OEM machines but only recently started selling it retail under their own brand.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: It works as it's supposed to, seems nearly as fast as my 7200RPM drives.
Cons: Newegg's policy of letting foolish reviews get posted...
Like giving a BARE DRIVE a ONE EGG rating because it came in a SEALED antistatic bag and not a RETAIL BOX.... "HUR HURR REFURBISHED! DRIVE SUCKS!!"
or people who give it a ONE EGG rating because they dun goofed up and initialized a 4TB drive as MBR instead of GPT then rant "I bought a 4TB drive, not a 2.2TB drive.... DRIVE SUCKS! NEEDS ZERO STARS RATING!!"
or people who give it a ONE EGG rating because "It's only 3.63TB not 4TB... GUBMENT STEALIN MUH TBs!... DRIVE SUCKS ONE STAR!!!"
Other Thoughts: proof of technical competency should be required before being allowed to post reviews.. or at least anything lower than a 3-egg rating should be screened for user errors... it's a shame that perfectly good products have their ratings skewed by incompetent usersREAD FULL REVIEW
