This review is from: MSI MSI Gaming 970 Gaming AM3+ AMD 970 SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 ATX AMD Motherboard
Pros: Screw into case and mounted cpu and ram then plugged in power, case, USB 3.0, DVD and hard drives and fired this puppy up. Came up up with no problems and loaded windows without a hitch.
Cons: Gotta move around boot devices in bios which is easy drag and drop if you have an external connected as bios will not find OS if left as sent from factory. Have 1866 ram but only shows 1600 but not gonna clock or game so no biggie.
Other Thoughts: FX 6300, 8 gigs 1866. Using stock cooler from an FX 8300 and cpu temps hover at 30c. 4 120mm fans in case and everything stays stable and cool.READ FULL REVIEW
This review is from: Thermaltake Urban R21 Black SECC ATX Mid Tower Computer Case (CA-1A6-00M1WN-00)
Pros: Came in a bundle with mother board, no damage or dents.
Cons: Really thin metal that is all right if you take your time during build and don't plan on opening after, need to use long shaft screws included to mount front fan and you need to figure this out, if you have a module PSU bottom fan mount is useless as cables will be in way, top and side fan case perforations larger than 120mm . Really cheap filters and not cleaning friendly. Tool less drive mount are really cheap so better using screws.
Other Thoughts: Budget case for sure but will do the job.READ FULL REVIEW
