This review is from: Corsair Carbide Series 200R Black Steel / Plastic compact ATX Mid Tower Case
Lots of fan options
Cons: Only one. I had a Corsair H100 cooler that was suppose to fit the case. Unfortunately there wasn't enough clearance for the fans to mount inside the case. The radiator was up against the motherboard and the heatsinks prevented mounting of the fans inside. I was luckily able to mount the fans on top of my case after drilling a large enough hole to thread the fan wires down into the case.
Other Thoughts: I didn't knock of any eggs as a different motherboard would have allowed the fans to barely fit.
It is a lower quality case, ie cheap. so I don't expect everything to work flawlessly and couldn't knock an egg off. at least not a whole egg.
Other than that, this case has been flawless for over two years now. I've replaced the motherboard four times, and just kept the fans on top. Too lazy to switch them around, plus they would need to be removed to remove/install another motherboard as it would block installation a bit. it might squeeze by if left installed, but looks easier to just remove them and get them out of the way.
Pros: Hot swap bays
Water Cooler support
segregated top for better heat control
200mm top fan
Cons: Not a one. But it would be nice to have SSD how swappable trays so I don't have to screw them down. Not a big deal, but would be nice.
Other Thoughts: I've had this case for over a year and a half. Have rebuilt it several times for upgrades/improvements.
I love this case and always recommend it to my friends and family.
Now Cooler Master just needs to make a micro-ATX and Mini-ITX version of this case.
Optional see through windows on top and sides would be awesome!
To hot swap problems.
1) you need to enable hot swap in BIOS of motherboard for best success. Otherwise you risk frying your drives.
2) You need to eject the drive from the operating system or you'll risk losing data. (right click the , "Safely remove hardware and eject media" button and make sure you eject the proper thing. Mandatory for USB drives as well. or you risk losing data or even corrupting your whole hard drive.
3) never hot swap any device unless absolutely necessary.
Murphy's law: If anything can go wrong, it will and at the worst possible time!
This review is from: Logitech Z623 200 w 2.1 Speaker System, THX-Certified
Pros: Going strong after 3-years
Great price when I bought them ($109.99)
Crisp clean sound. Probably the best 2.1 on the market (next to Klipsch Promedia 2.1)
Cons: Not enough punch is the mid-range section.
Other Thoughts: Great for movies and newer hip-hop bass heavy music.
If you like the old punch of 80s-90s rock music, then check out the Klipsch Promedia 2.1.
