Antec Three Hundred Black Steel ATX Mid Tower Computer Case
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: more than 1 year

5 out of 5 eggs Great case that's easy to work in 07/14/2015

This review is from: Antec Three Hundred Black Steel ATX Mid Tower Computer Case

Pros: Finished edges, user-friendly design & control locations.

Cons: None.

Other Thoughts: This case has been a pleasure to own and use. It houses my always-on components, and is part of a build that is 4.5-5 years old now. The case is finished inside and has not cut me while I've had my hands inside. The front intake (with fan option) allows for a lot of airflow over heat-sensitive components. My next case will be, if not a sound-dampened Lian Li or Silverstone, another Antec.

Intel Core i7-870 Lynnfield Quad-Core 2.93 GHz LGA 1156 95W BX80605I7870 Processor
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: more than 1 year

Pros: Rock-solid reliability, and can stand up to extended use.

Cons: None.

Other Thoughts: I've had this CPU for 4.5 years and it has been in near-constant production use. I turned the machine off a month ago as I noticed that the CPU temperature was around 55C under mild use, blew out the inside of the case with compressed air, blew the dust off of every fan, fin, and surface inside, reassembled the computer, and now the CPU idles around 27-21C, is 38C under moderate load, and sometimes spikes to 65C when running all-out. Solid. Reliable. Dependable. It's been a great purchase.

Arctic Silver 5 High-Density Polysynthetic Silver Thermal Compound AS5-3.5G
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: more than 1 year

Pros: Great heat dissipation qualities.

Cons: Easy to apply too much.

Other Thoughts: Arctic Silver makes a great thermal compound, always has. The only downside to this product is the same that all in its class have: it's easy, if you're a novice, to apply too much. A THIN layer spread atop the CPU will suffice! How I apply this is put a dab in the middle of the CPU and then smooth it over the surface with a non-laminated business card. I usually end up with some overrun on the card, as I try to avoid reapplication.

Good product, easy to use, great outcome.
