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
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 day to 1 week

Pros: Good value for what you get, 3 good fans, good layout and finish, some unexpected features (removable PSU intake filter).

Cons: Really flimsy (ESPECIALLY the plastic face plate), thumb screws are really tight, had to use a screwdriver, which defeat the purpose of tool-less thumb screws...

Other Thoughts: This may be more of an issue with shipping, but the flimsiness of the front face plate didn't help: When I picked up the cardboard box containing the case after getting it, I heard rattling. Hoping it was just some loose screws or something, I opened the box and slid it out. Immediately the ENTIRE FRONT FACE PLATE fell on the floor. The plastic standoffs holding the front face plate in place were sheared off completely, all 6 of them. No other damage to the case was found.

It effectively means I lose the nice layout for the Power/Reset buttons and HDD LED, the front panel items
(2 USB 2.0, audio and SATA connectors) and all frontal dust protection. Fortunately, being that this is a functional build for LAN parties, I'm just going to duct tape the front panel board and buttons to the FDD bay, go front plate-less and call it day.

It wouldn't be worth my time and effort to RMA what essentially amounts to a $25 case after rebates. Rosewill: Could you send me a new front face plate? Everything else is OK. Otherwise, I won't bother shipping this case back. I'll just live with it as is...

tl;dr - If you're building a nice machine, you may want to steer clear of this case... I guess you get what you pay for. :P

Link Depot HDMI-2-HDMI 6 ft. HDMI TO HDMI A/V Cable

5 out of 5 eggs Works! 10/16/2013

This review is from: Link Depot HDMI-2-HDMI 6 ft. HDMI TO HDMI A/V Cable

Pros: Cheap, works as it should. Enough length so that it's not too short for most applications, but not unwieldy either. Quality is good, not noticeable drop in picture quality.

Cons: none so far...

MSI R7870-2GD5T/OC Radeon HD 7870 GHz Edition 2GB 256-Bit GDDR5 PCI Express 3.0 x16 HDCP Ready CrossFireX Support Video Card
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 month to 1 year

Pros: This card is pretty powerful, and for it to arrive OCed already make this card a shoe-in. It paired nicely with my XFX Double D 7870, and I saw gains of 70-80% on some of my games. All in all, pretty good bang for the buck.

Cons: One caveat is if you have dual monitors and are planning to use Crossfire mode. I thought you could just plug one monitor into each and use Crossfire, but the second monitor only works with Crossfire off in this configuration. I had to put both monitor plugs into my other XFX card in order to get both working with crossfire mode on.

Doesn't come with a Crossfire Bridge either. No biggy as I got one with my other card, but for those who buy 2 of these to Crossfire, be aware of the needed extra purchase. Also, no HDMI > DVI connector, so if you have 2 DVI monitors, you will have to buy that also...

Other Thoughts: These cards are valued around $230, but wait for a sale. I picked this card up for about $165 after MIR, which is an AWESOME deal. Don't pay full price for this card, as a better card at the $250 price range would be the NVidia Geforce 760GTX (if it's on sale).
