nMEDIAPC Black Aluminum / Acrylic / Steel HTPC 6000B ATX Media Center / HTPC Case
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: more than 1 year

5 out of 5 eggs as versatile as it gets 07/20/2014

This review is from: nMEDIAPC Black Aluminum / Acrylic / Steel HTPC 6000B ATX Media Center / HTPC Case

Pros: this case has work as intended for me and got wifey off my back for having a comp case behind speaker.
put together from left over part at the beginning and now added a SSD, been using more and more as time past .
I like the pull out cage, you can pivit it on the case to work on it, everything fit and lined up

Cons: NONE, I wish it was a liitle bit smaller but I knew that before buying.
the description says its 16.4 but its more like 16 3/4in. long
there's not that many htpc cases to choose from that will take a full ATX MB.

Other Thoughts: the case has serve me will, not going to find a smaller case with a full power supply in ATX format at this price,
the good thing about it is that it looks good and its looks like a Av component .

AMD FX-8350 Black Edition Vishera 8-Core 4.0GHz (4.2GHz Turbo) Socket AM3+ 125W Desktop Processor FD8350FRHKBOX
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 month to 1 year

Pros: with promotion code this was a very impresses budget upgrade for me. install with a CM 212plus and a 2nd 120mm fan push pull temperature's as gone very well for me, not sure if I got a better binary chip but mine chip well match its big brother on air cooling setup I have.
at 4.7ghz it idles at 18c, normal use at 35c, max 1hour stress test 55.6c , its in a HAF 922 case with artic 5,
integrated memory chip is running much better than last gen , got 2133 out of it .not mush to brag about in game play, about 5 to 7 fps more but the system just run so much better now with no lag . benchmark shows it outscore competition in multi thread app.

Cons: benchmark shows its 40% slower in single thread app.
don't get some reviews, what does 360,560,1080p has to do with this chip, get a better v. card,
2 years ago i would not have gotten this chip at its price point.
if you try to use the heatsink that came with it you got what you but in

Other Thoughts: this was a budget upgrade for me, half the price of my sons I5 3570k setup i got 2 years ago, even with the SSD aim still under budget and running faster,
PLUS as all way with AMD, backward compatible, i was able to upgrade the HTPC for free.

MSI N660 TF 2GD5/OC GeForce GTX 660 2GB 192-Bit GDDR5 PCI Express 3.0 x16 HDCP Ready SLI Support Video Card
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 month to 1 year

Pros: My bad MSI. I didn't notice the afterburner defaulted the dual fans to 30% ,it doesn't go up from 30% .LOL, I guess iam running some good air flow now with the 200m on the side , use to have fans running at 48%

Cons: NONE

Other Thoughts: I been moving fan case fans around , got the rear ex fan of the system header running at full speed and the 2nd fan on the 212 running at 60%, even wend I had the video card at 60% ,I can barely tell on the audio side .
just got to find the balance between air flow and noise.
Recommendation is the same , just keep and eye on temperatures ,
