Pros: Fairly sturdy, a bit more than other Name Brand cases of this era and price-range. Plexi window is clean and solid.
Cons: There is no cable management other than hiding unnecessary connections behind the 5.25" bays... the molex connectors are some of the worst I've handled on any psu.
Fan controller would be nice.
Other Thoughts: Bought this case back in '06 for my kiddo... installed the K8N Pro-SLI and the GV-NX76G512P-RH in SLI for Vista. Recently installed W7 Pro x64 and runs just as smooth.
I've been messing with pc's since '98 and I'm still learning- admittedly. I build modded LC'd machines, sleeve psu's and even paint cases after cutting them up... and I do research on all components before buying.
I have to laugh... sooo many reviews from folks considering themselves a 4 or 5 Star rating in Tech knowledge- only to KNOCK a product after they decided to buy it without checking the 'net reviews and blogs. They seem to have just a "clue" on what they have in their possession -only to grieve and gripe about installations/functions, settings and compatibility issues with Non-Compatible hdwr. - like Memory Modules/speed settings to CPU's and sys. board chipsets.
Research... then complain to the mirror when you finally admit to a poor decision.
Pros: clocks set to 570 core and 960 (480 eff.) memory... they stay at 44 and 50 deg. ave. and up to 72 and 76 under load.
Cons: ...way-way old, clean- not crusty... for the ga-k8n pro-sli sys. board.
Other Thoughts: with 2 80mm fans on them (1500 rpm) and the case has adequate ventilation- not loud at all. Took a bit to get them running SLI properly in W7 x64.

nothing fancy- just simple, stable, effective and soooo outdated.
No blue screens either.
This review is from: Patriot Xporter XT Boost 8GB Flash Drive (USB 2.0 Portable) Model PEF8GUSB
Pros: Still working at 100%... one of the Best USB jump drives I have ever owned. This is a durable, shock resistant covered drive with plenty of benefits and loads of life for a lasting and reliable product. Read and write speeds are as advertised- except when loaded down with heavy data, but that's like any other hard drive.
Cons: not one...
Other Thoughts: I have the Black & Blue 16GB version also (recent purchase -Patriot Supersonic Boost XT 16GB USB 3.0 Flash Drive Model PEF16GSBUSB) and it now holds right at 14GB's of data and has been performing just as smooth as this one does. The 8GB drive is now my W7 OS loader- aids installs of the x64 Ult. ver. in less than 5 min's.
Highly recommend as a reliable and sturdy aux. boost memory or hard drive.
