This review is from: APEVIA CVT628 PCI-E Y Splitter. 1 x 6pin to 2 x 6/8pin PCI Express Converter
Pros: -Killer price
-You don't need a power supply with 8 pin PCIe connectors to run 8 pin GPUs!
Other Thoughts: My power supply is a Corsair TX650v2, and it only has 2 PCIe connectors, therefore to run my crossfire 7950 setup, I had to use molex adapters that were awkward, space consuming, and a pain to move around.
These cables are exactly what I was after!
Pros: -Rubberized finish on front and top of case
-Mesh grill on front and top, looks great and doesn't inhibit airflow
-Audio jacks & 3 USB ports up top
-2.5" / 3.5" HDD dock!
-240 / 280mm Radiator support
-Lots of fan mounts, 2 included fans, and fan controller
-Plenty of screws
-Side panels are incredibly sturdy, as is the chassis
-Very long front panel connectors, can't express enough how awesome this is
-PSU and bottom fan dust filters
Cons: -Sticky power button, has to be pressed at an angle or it gets stuck half way (Probably just mine, seems the cutout for the button is just barely too small)
Other Thoughts: Got the case for $50, and it was an absolute steal! This replaced my previous NZXT Source 220, which was also $50.
This was an awesome upgrade for me, mainly due to the radiator support and the slide in HDD mounts, while keeping the features I loved such as the side panel fan mount and the front mesh.
