RAIDMAX Raptor ATX-823BR Black Steel / Plastic ATX Mid Tower Computer Case
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: 1 day to 1 week

Pros: So many cases look great in pictures and look like junk when you get them in person. Not this case. It's as stunning in person as a picture. The capacity inside is great. 5 HDD's in mine, plus an SSD. The wireway management system is great. I will purchase RAIDMAX again.

Cons: The hard drive bays are too close to the back panel, once you plug in your SATA cables and power, you can not put the side lid on. PROTIP, you must remove the HDD's out a few inches, close the panel, then push HDD's in very firmly till they snap and compress the cables on the backside.

ASRock Z87 PRO3 LGA 1150 Intel Z87 HDMI SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 ATX Intel Motherboard

  • neweggOwned For: 1 day to 1 week

Pros: This is my second ASRock. After my last board (ASRock 970 Extreme 4), I was so impressed, I didn't even shop other brands. I just found the ASRock board I needed to match my new Haswell chip.

The UEFI Bios on this board is amazing. It provided tools to load my RAID driver onto a USB prior to my OS installation. Booting into UEFI mode and mounting the entire 3 TB array as one drive letter (GPT) was quick and easy.

I've built 100's of custom machines and used every brand MB out there. I'm not saying this one is a Ferrari, but it's definitely a BMW.

Cons: None.

  • neweggOwned For: 1 day to 1 week

Pros: When I build new custom gaming rigs, I'm usually looking for performance at the write price. When it comes to Price/Performance, after a week of searching I ended up with this card. It has done a great job of replacing my 570 GTX. Over 1000 CUDA cores, I'm doing some very fast Video conversions right now......

Cons: Can't say there are any, a tweak utility would be nice though.
