Rosewill CAPSTONE-750 750W Continuous @ 50°C, Intel Haswell Ready, 80 PLUS GOLD, ATX12V v2.31 & EPS12V v2.92, SLI/CrossFire Ready, Active PFC Power Supply
  • Owned For: 1 week to 1 month

Pros: Good price when on sale for reliable 750W Gold
Good packaging
Effecient
5 year warranty

Cons: Fatter than anticipated
750W means non-modular will be a cable monster
SATA connectors where very tight/stiff and hard to put on

Other Thoughts: Part of my first build, I probably should have thought ahead that the bigger the wattage = more cables for SLI/X-fire/multiple HDD/etc, and so I naively got the non-modular CAPSTONE. I don't regret it though, as it works fine and has a nice 5 year warranty in addition to being gold. The SATA connectors on my PSU where really hard to push in, I'm not sure if that was common on these or not, but something to note.

Seagate Momentus XT ST95005620AS 500GB 7200 RPM 32MB Cache 2.5
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 week to 1 month

Pros: Quiet
Very well packaged, kuddos Newegg
Got it cheap on sale
Faster than a regular 7200 RPM, especially on boot/shutdown

Cons: Seagate forums littered with problems with the Momentus Xt, so I was pretty worried about it failing as well as it being a referb.

Other Thoughts: So far after a couple weeks of operation it works like a charm! Boots and Shuts down in particular are quite fast for me. Not as fast as an SSD, but a nice speed for the price.

CM Storm Scout 2 Advanced - Gaming Mid Tower Computer Case with Carrying Handle and Windowed Side Panel - Black
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 month to 1 year

Pros: Looks cool
Side panels have a nice buldge, good for cables
All painted black
Nice feeling buttons
Solid Construction
Window is nice
Grip-friendly handle
Removable side of HDD cage
Rubber grommets
Tool-less HDD & 5.25 bays

Cons: Rather heavy, but as this is my first build I don't have much experience with how heavy cases are supposed to be
Window might be small for some
Feet might be a bit too short for some
Needs just one more grommet on the inside next to ATX 24-pin to feel right
Difficult to fit a 240mm radiator inside

Other Thoughts: Part of my first build, I feel happy with this case. I really like the design and got it on sale. It is well built from what I can tell and has a good amount of cable management space in the back. I wish this case had one more grommet/hole going vertically up the motherboard edge so I wouldn't have to bend my main 24-pin either way up or way down. I like the window, it shows off what I want to look at and not all the 5.25/HDD bays, but could be too small for some. I put stuff on the feet to make the case taller, as I didn't want my PSU to turn into a vaccum cleaner. Also, with my particular PSU I had to cut a part of the grommet so I could screw it in place, which might not be neccessary with average PSUs. Pleasantly pleased
