DIYPC Adventurer-9601R Black/Red Steel Gaming ATX Mid Tower Computer Case with 5 x 120mm Red Fan and 1 x USB 3.0

5 out of 5 eggs The nicest case I've ever disliked (It's bland) 11/03/2013

This review is from: DIYPC Adventurer-9601R Black/Red Steel Gaming ATX Mid Tower Computer Case with 5 x 120mm Red Fan and 1 x USB 3.0

Pros: Easy to assemble, comes with extra screws, and you don't need a screwdriver to remove or add hard drives or cd drives.

It's solid, it distributes heat nicely, and I've had no issues with it what-so-ever, excluding my aesthetic. Would definitely recommend to anyone,

Water cooling capability is a nice touch. GPU doesn't get in the way because the hard drives are facing another direction, it's a fantastic case!

Cons: Aesthetically, I first thought it was beautiful. Now, though... I just wish I could hide it. It reminds me batman beyond, but with less style. It's dark gray, and the lights aren't very bright except for on the back.

It's dark gray, not shiny, the lights aren't that birght, and I don't really like having all of my computer parts in something that looks like a super-computer from a science fiction movie. It's not something you can quite see from the photos, but everywhere you see lights on the photos, they're covered up at least 60%. When I turn off my lights, I have a very funny looking spider web on my ceiling

Other Thoughts: Buy it if you're looking for something plain, or cost effective. Your PC won't be representative of your tastes. It isn't necessarily an eye sore, it's just run of the mill. Just not my thing.

Pros: Runs fast. Runs fine in Mac OS 10.9 without any complications.

Cons: Very warm.

Other Thoughts: I haven't pushed it to it's limit, primarily because I mostly use it for graphics acceleration in software, and PS2/Wii emulators. Yeah, sure, I can do other things, and sometimes I do... But with more game consoles coming right around the corner, my computer's GPU isn't altogether that important.

Pros: It's reliable, decently fast, and altogether not too shabby.

Cons: The CPU is slower than a non-intel one I purchased back in 2009, for a lower price.

No overclocking, no turbo, it has nothing too motivating, really.

Other Thoughts: Some of the software I used had memory leaks when run on non-intel processors. So when I built this current PC, I needed a processor from Intel to continue doing what I do.

It's worth the current price. If you're looking to buy it, you might be a little disappointed by the performance, but it will do what you need it to do.

If I had a time machine, this isn't the processor I would get.
