Pros: Everything about this case is good. Light, strong and clean, 2 big quiet fans. but there is a problem with the CDROM drive hitting the mobo.if the drive is too long.
Cons: I have had the lights on rear fan burn out right away. BOTH fans are supposed to be lit but other have stated only one fan had a light so they got fans with no light.. The drives do fit but the CDROM sitcks over the mobo and I had to use the top slot which barely worked.. The hard drives fit on the bottom only, not where it says "HDD".. PSU must be installed first and IO cover may not pop in at all.
Other Thoughts: This is my second purchase of this case, the other was white. Still a great deal considering the price, free shipping and the paint inside and out.I should get a free fan to replace the one that burned out the light, but for this price I don't care as long as the fan works.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: This has the best screen I have ever seen. 1920 x 1080 with DVI on Windows 7, amazing clarity, colors and sharpness.
Other Thoughts: Arrived fast in perfect condition. A super great monitor for a great price. Absolutely no regrets buying this monitor.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: the list is long. It's small but does it all. WiFi, Bluetooth, ect.
No video card needed with APU's and there is a pcie slot too, 6 sata, USB 3.0, front and rear speaker jacks and so on. I installed an A6-5400 and one 4 gb1866 memory stick and new APU heatsink/fan with Windows 7. It runs very fast and well.There IS a audio port below the PCIe card slot (a con), and the memory slots are very close to the APU heatsink, so adding your own heatsink must clear the memory slot. I was only able to use one slot which is all I needed anyway. If I install the APU heatsink pipes the other way, I could have both slots when needed.
Cons: None but beware that the back of the mobo is not empty behind the APU so underboard heatsink brackets won't work. I had to go with a solid copper heatsink that used the same hold down method as the OEM setup.
I also found the the "thermal paste" on the tiny southbridge heatsink was bad so I applied some new Arctic Silver thermal paste. Rec only using silver thermal paste on APU.
Other Thoughts: When I used the HDMI port for a 32" monitor it was fuzzy, but the VGA and DVI ports were crystal clear.
Overall I'm very happy with this item, the transaction and the super fast delivery. This is probably the best and smallest FM2, FM2+ board there is if you want a good small board for a great price. I already have the Gigabyte version and I like this one better because I don't need all kinds of slots, just a nice fast computer that does everything and if you have a faster processor(A10 5800 4 core), fast video card and at least 1866 memory, this will play BF 2142 at 100 fps on Windows 7.
