Pros: 80+ certified, silent
Other Thoughts: Perfect match for my needs. Put in a gaming\school system for my son. It is powering an MSI board, G3258 @ 4.1GHz, EVGA 750TI SC, PNY 480GB SSD, Cooler Master CPU water cooler, 120mm, and a 80mm case fan.
I picked up on sale for around $30 but under 40 is a good deal for this power supply. Hope to get at least 3 worry free years from this and the system before upgrade time again.
This review is from: DIYPC MA08-BK Black USB 3.0 Micro-ATX Mini Tower Gaming Computer Case with Dual Fans
Pros: Great value!! Top mounted USB and audio and solid feel about the case in general. USB 3 and bottom mounted 2.5 drive
Cons: Perhaps QA on the dents to the side but again my situation and the price not a big deal pushed them out and put in a desk cabinet so not seen.
Other Thoughts: Built an inexpensive gaming system for my son and picked this. WOW what a deal under $30!! Solid feel! I put a 430 watt 80+ power supply with a DVD drive and able to tie up the unused power cables and put above the DVD drive out of the way. I removed the drive mount bar thing and put in a 120MM water cooler using the existing front LED fan with push pull config and fit ZERO issues still leaving the bottom 2.5 for a SSD drive and the 3.5 but I was putting a 500GB SSD so not a problem with me and still had room for a 9.5" 750 TI SC EVGA video with about inch to spare with water cooling fan setup. The rear 80mm fan worked fine with the power supply with exhaust my system temps under 30c and gaming\benchmarking mid 40ish and 4.1ghz g3258 low 30's celsius to low 60's under load. Video idle low 20's and never seen above 60c.
Hard for me to take off a star for the dents in the side considering the price and my use in a desk side cabinet. Really a great shocker to me with the feel and value for the cost. Everyone in the house really likes it and works great for a budget gaming and school system that should last him a few years. If you plan on what you are getting you can not go wrong with this case. A modular power supply would be best route but space above the 5.25 bay even with a drive and a few zip ties and problem solved. Bottom 2.5 mount really nice. I used a few rubber washers for the SSD drive to get a spacer from the case.

Pros: I bought this for my home. Yeah I'm sure you are thinking why but I have 3 teenagers and a 10 year old and each with a computer or laptop and a tablet or phone and not to mention more friends than one can think of. I used a flashed Asus RT-N66 but it ran really hot and just could not keep up with all the traffic and seemed to "bog out" constantly so I gave this unit a try. Man I'm glad I did!! We have had ZERO issues using as the main router and switching the Asus over as the AP with a guest wireless for the friends. I have had this in service for 8 months and not once has it been reset and maintains the speeds without any problems and the DMZ port a bonus for the XBOX. VPN when family on a trip is a super perk too and not to mention the rules that can be setup as compared to the average home router. They advertise as a business class but I would really really suggest this to any person with a bigger family with allot of devices that pull constant data.
Other Thoughts: Really nice unit for my needs and usage.READ FULL REVIEW
