This review is from: Rosewill CHALLENGER Black Gaming ATX Mid Tower Computer Case, comes with Three Fans-1x Front Blue LED 120mm Fan, 1x Top 140mm Fan, 1x Rear 120mm Fan, option Fans-2x Side 120mm Fan
Pros: Black inside finish
Bottom mounted PSU (sold separately)
No crazy plastic pieces to get broken in shipping
Lots of room for routing cables behind the motherboard tray
Cons: Thumbscrews for the side panels aren't metal
Other Thoughts: Loved this case - best one I have worked on yet. Coolest thing? A little screwdriver adapter that helps screw in the motherboard mounts so you don't need a nut driver. I did have to modify the plastic 2.5 bay adapter - I cut a notch out of it for the power wires of my SSD.READ FULL REVIEW
This review is from: APEX MI-110 Black / Silver Steel Mini-ITX Tower Computer Case 250W Power Supply
Pros: cute and tiny - wife loves it!
Cons: Screws stripped too easily
Not enough screws were supplied.
have some zip ties on hand
Other Thoughts: I bought this for my first mini-itx build. Yes, the power supply is barely touching the housing for the CPU fan, but all is okay that I can see. Also, do NOT get any ram with heat sinks. I had to buy another plain 8 gig and put the 8 gig that I got for this build into my rig, so a win/win. But the heat sinks just wont fit under the hard drive.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: Works - and works well.
Cons: Software is stupid.
Other Thoughts: Bought this for my wife's homework machine, and I didn't feel like running a network cable upstairs. Once the software was installed it worked, but sporadically, and whatever window you would be working on would lose focus constantly. I decided to uninstall the configuration tools UI (but left the drivers installed) and haven't had any problems since. I think the configuration tools and the built in windows tools were conflicting with each other.READ FULL REVIEW
