Diablotek RPA-A95BK Black Aluminum ATX Mid Tower Computer Case
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 day to 1 week

Pros: Looks really good. Very light yet solid and tight. A near-black dark grey. Looks very elegant. It's aluminum!!!! Even the front bezel is aluminum! It's a mid tower and has enough room for full size ATX everything and whatever you could want to put in it. Nothing refurbished about this except maybe its cardboard shipping box was touched up. It looks absolutely new without a scratch and has all its parts and a nice manual. This is the cheapest aluminum case of any size I have seen anywhere. Both side panels slide off easily after the 2 thumb screws per side are removed. Ordered it the 25th. It shipped the 26th and it arrived the 29th - free shipping. I wanted the cheapest aluminum tower style case I could find and found this beauty for $34.99. I am very pleased.

Cons: None.

Other Thoughts: I have seen $100 cases that weren't as nice as this one.

  • Owned For: less than 1 day

Pros: Most everyone - that being many buyers - rated this as a good unit. I have never had a bad DVD/CD drive from any manufacturer in the many years I have been building. Looks like this is a nice unit and I will be getting this one for my next build.

Cons: Please, to those complaining about lack of cables, instructions and bubble wrap packaging; it says right here that this is an OEM unit. That means it is packaged as an OEM unit. It means no cables, no instructions and no box (most of the time). If you expect pretty boxes and a cable, then don't buy the OEM version and pay for all that.

  • Owned For: less than 1 day

Pros: Very very close performance with much more expensive i7/i5s. Better than any current AMD proc for gaming. This CPU can be had for $149 if you shop around. Compare its benchmarks on Anandtech with ANY other CPU and you will be amazed at the bang for buck ratio. This is my prime choice CPU for my next gaming rig.

Cons: There are no cons. If you want a slightly better CPU, pay more and get the i53470K. But the performance you would get for the more $ is very negligible.

Other Thoughts: I want this chip. It's awesome and the price is right - especially when it's on sale. Get this one and the $ you saved on it would be wisely spent on improved vid card, mobo and RAM. I am not much for overclocking as I don't see a need in this day and age.
