This review is from: nMEDIAPC HTPC 300BA Black Aluminum/Plastic/Steel ATX Mini Tower Computer Case
Pros: Nice style and low price. Great temperature LED indicator which comes in REAL handy.
Cons: The front panel of the case is really cheap. The top panel does not slide up and down, it usually slides out of place. It is made of cheap plastic and feels like it is going to break off every time I move it. The fan is quiet but according to the LED, the temperature gets to be close to 100 degrees so I'm assuming that the fan is so quiet for a reason (doesn't work). Now I have to turn on the AC when I power on the HTPC. The power connection is very loose and when I unplug the power, I feel like I'm going to rip the connection out of the case also.
Other Thoughts: If you just need a simple case, you can go for this but personally I like to spend more money and have something last longer. I guess usually you get what you paid for and this is definitely the case.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: I can definitely feel it blowing cool air out of my case. I thought it didn't come with screws so I was searching all over to see which screws would fit and it turns out it was packaged in the 2nd fan that I bought together.
Cons: Not as quiet as I would like it to be. It has adjustment control to control the speed of the fan but I don't believe it works (at least not a noticeable difference) in the speed or the noise level it created.READ FULL REVIEW
This review is from: ABIT IP35 Pro LGA 775 Intel P35 ATX Intel Motherboard
Pros: This motherboard is very well constructed. I especially like the placement of the SATA and IDE connectors. These connectors are close to where the hard drives would be and ends up with less cables criss-crossing each other (better ventilation). Plenty of SATA connections and fast front bus speed. It also looks very nice inside the case since it has blue background and copperish color heatsinks.
Cons: Not so much a con but my concern is the memory speed (DDR2 800) would be outdated rather quickly.
Other Thoughts: A great bargain. I would recommend this to everyone who doesn't need top of the line parts.READ FULL REVIEW
