XION Solaris XON-406 Black Steel ATX Mid Tower Computer Case

4 out of 5 eggs Not a bad case. 10/24/2008

This review is from: XION Solaris XON-406 Black Steel ATX Mid Tower Computer Case

Pros: Not bad for the money. The lights are nice and everything lines up nicely. Its a precision case for little money.

Cons: I managed to put to ATI 4870's in this case with 2 ,1 Terrabyte harddrives but it was alot of work. If you plan to build a big high end sytem like I did, plan to have knowledge on how to run wires and place components.

Other Thoughts: I am still happy with my purchase. I am a machinist by trade and I can say that this is a high quality precision made product. Just not alot of room to work with I guess.

Pros: Nice PS. Installed nicely without any hitches. Running an AMD 9950, 8 gigs Patriot Extreme, 2 Terrabyte drives and a 250gb, 2 Ati 4870's (1 gig each) and 2 Lite-on 20x writers. Hasn't starved yet for power so I guess I am pretty impressed. Lights are nice too for that late night, beer drinking online killing sprees. It's a keeper!

Cons: None!

Other Thoughts: Wish the wires were a bit more UV friendly.

Pros: Unreal product! I used to swear by Ati hands down but during the past few years (since the 9700, 9800 pro and the X850) Ati has had many struggles. I had to run Nvidia during that time (Evga 7950 GT KO, 8800 GT) I am glad to be back writing a review for Ati that is a postive review. I bought 2 of these card from Sapphire and I am very pleased with the picture mostly. I have a buddy down the road that has 2, 9800GTX+ that was happy to big his rig up to compare side by side, and without a doubt Ati has the better picture. Not saying the frame rate is higher, but after 40 fps your eyes cant tell the difference its all about quality at that point.

Cons: Heat seems a bit higher in my case than his. About 9 degrees. Not a real issue though I have the important things like the processor liquid cooled so its not affected by the ambient temp.

Other Thoughts: I spent 2 grand on this system and I am very happy with the build. Phenom 9950 (125 watt) 8 gig Patriot extreme 1066, MSI K9A2 Platinum, 2 Sapphire 4870's 1 GIG, 1 Tera Seagate, 500 GIG Seagate, 250 GIG Seagate, 800 Watt Xion Lan Party Power Supply, Thermaltake Water cooling for processor. Man I spent a ton, but it was worth it!
