This review is from: Fractal Design Define S Silent Computer Case
Pros: There are 2 USB 3.0 on top of case. I opted for the non-windowed version... While I can't look at the tidy interior, it does have space for an additional 120/140mm fan on that side of the case. There is also a lot of room behind the motherboard for cable management. I absolutely love the Velcro tiebacks. There are no 5.25" drive cages in the front to hamper any airflow and this allows for great cooling options... But (see other)...
Cons: No USB 2.0 ports on the top like my other Fractal Design case. The F4 I had had both 2.0 and 3.0 ports.
Other Thoughts: I wanted to save some money and I did a half new, half old build... I got a new motherboard, which fit perfectly and, along with my somewhat long video card, went in without a hitch. The problem that I had was with my older H55 cooler - the hoses didn't quite reach the CPU. The case is about an inch too deep. I fixed it by using an broken 120mm fan I had as a spacer... I just clipped out the fan, sanded the edges, and the 'unfanned' shroud worked perfectly.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: I have ran this drive since 2011 without a hiccup. Great for additional storage. I have used this drive in multiple machines as either boot drives or as additional storage. Works great for either.
Cons: I haven't seen any cons with this product at all...
Other Thoughts: I have been impressed with the quality of this Seagate drive since I installed it on the first computer. Since 2011, this HD has been in 3-4 different computer configurations and is still going strong.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: Runs at advertised timing with no issues what-so-ever... I had a 2GB set of Tracer memory lying around and decided to add these to it.
Cons: Didn't really need the flashing lights... What's funny about that is the original set of Tracers I had where green with green LEDs... These are black with green and red LEDs... With the side panel off, the combination of the 2 sets of memory make me flash back to the 70's. My bad.
Other Thoughts: As you can see, the con isn't really a con. This memory has been running strong for almost 3 years now, and the Tracers I had before are still working great as well. They are only DDR3 1333.READ FULL REVIEW
