This review is from: DIYPC MA08-BK Black USB 3.0 Micro-ATX Mini Tower Gaming Computer Case with Dual Fans
Pros: It is small with plenty of room to work with. The design is nice. Made for the 2.5 drives. The installation of the drives are far away from the motherboard. Great to save space on desk. Since I use a SSD and Laptop HDD, perfect for my build. Air circulation is wonderful. Installed all the hardware. This is a small form factor case all the way. Only used 2.5 hard drive installing three (3). A slight modification to use the Cooler Master Hyper D92. Installing a single hard drive is wonderful because you wouldn't need the HDD caddy plate.
Cons: Only wish it had two (2) 5.25 bays.
Other Thoughts: Happy is the day.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: Low TDP that performs better with little OC ability. Runs quiet and packed with features. I spent a week plus researching Intel CPU's and motherboards prior to building a Desktop PC. This i7-4790s rocks. I didn't think the HTT would make much of a difference; however, out performed just as good as the other i7-4790 in it's class. Works well with Linux and Windows using DDR3-1600 RAM. The bench marks are pretty close being in the top tier. Overall performance is wonderful. Can't beat high end performance at low TDP for gaming or office. Matched with Intel H87 Express Chipset.
Cons: I've always purchased after market heatsink for any Intel CPU.
Other Thoughts: Getting a CPU heatsink that can handle 100w CPU or more. I use a 92mm dual fan CPU Cooler rated at 130w TDP which idle at 30 degrees and run up to 42 degrees. An incompatible heatsink would cause the system to cut off and on. Make sure the Heatsink is compatible with LGA-1150 socket.READ FULL REVIEW
