This review is from: SILVERSTONE Grandia Series GD05B-USB3.0 Aluminum / 0.8mm SECC micro-ATX / Mini-DTX / Mini-ITX MB, 1x5.25", 2x3.5"+1x2.5"HDD or 1x3.5"+2x2.5"HDD, 3x120mm golf bladed fan, 11" expansion card capable HTPC Case with 2X USB3.0 ports (Black)
Pros: Nice case, good placement of all internal components. A little work intensive (removing parts to add components then reassembling) but not a big project. Good HD mounts (sound dampened).
The case was chosen for its shallow profile (12.8"). Very nice layout. (you will most likely need a power cord with a 90 degree angle plug) ATX micro only. Can hold 1 3.5" HD and / or 1 2.5" SSD...and 1 optical drive.
Cons: Case has front USB 3.0 ports....very nice, except (and I didn't know this until now) these USB connectors are not compatible with a motherboard that only have USB 2.0 connectors. An adapter is needed to use them (sold separately).
Other Thoughts: Overall a very solid case. Just be aware of connector issue. Either get a motherboard with USB 3.0 or buy an adapter at the same time.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: The mouse is everything I had hoped for. It worked as advertised and is wonderful during games. Until....
Cons: Razer Synapse attempted to do an automated firmware update of my mouse. The firmware update failed. The mouse became a dead mouse. Computer will no longer recognize the mouse. Firmware trick from Razer website to repair a bricked mouse failed. I am now in theprocess of getting a solution from Razer. (Not happy that a once functioning mouse is now a useless and expensive desk ornament.)READ FULL REVIEW
