Pros: well... the price tag is crazy low considering it comes with a 400w psu. It does the job. I used it on a $204 build, so it helped save some money.
Cons: Of course theres a lot to be listed, but remember the price.
Fans are kinda loud, front panel/bezel/whatever its called is extremely hard to get off, When set to sleep mode the fans and keyboard lights stay on, (Might be the motherboard). Keyboard lights stay on even when computer is shut down, (also might be the motherboard) front cables are un-standard, the power LED connector didnt work with the motherboard I got and the audio headers were differen't and didn't have doccumentation, the hard drive caddy was extremely hard to remove the first time(might be just the one i got, i used pliers)
Other Thoughts: Also, If your motherboard only has one IDE port and you try to use an IDE hard drive with an IDE cd/dvd drive the cable wont reach between the two. My own fault though.
It was 24 bucks + shipping, and it works. I think it's worth it if your doing a budget build.
This review is from: ZOTAC GF8100-C-E AM2+/AM2 NVIDIA GeForce 8100 Micro ATX AMD Motherboard
Pros: Board performs great, better than I expected. The integrated graphics were better than I expected. I'm running the system with an amd athlon x2 at 2.9ghz, and 2gb ddr2 800mhz ram. I built a computer for $204 total with this board.
Cons: Newegg doesn't have it listed for AM3 compatibility, but it says on the box that it works with AM3 processors. I would double check that, but it coulda saved me some money and gained me some speed if I had known.
Also, the Ram slots felt very cheap and the clips didnt stay on perfectly, and the VGA port bends a little. Back plate was a bit hard to fit into case, but that might have been the cases fault.
Other Thoughts: You get a good board for that price.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: After everything is set up, its great. there is a fan speed control, and the front panel being on top was a really helpful idea. The case looks great, even better in person than in the pictures.
Cons: Only one of the fans light up. I ordered another fan though so that wasnt a problem. The tool-less installation wasn't exactly the greatest thing in the world... I think using screws is more secure and doesnt take much extra work. The front panel is hard to remove to add a front fan, I had to use pliers to squeeze the tab things in the back.
Other Thoughts: After all the small things are taken care of, the case is great. Looks great, you can see a glowing fan through the front, and overall i would buy it again. (except I won't because I like variety)READ FULL REVIEW
