Best case for the money

Cooler Master Storm Scout SGC-2000-KKN1-GP Black Steel / Plastic ATX Mid Tower Computer Case
Cooler Master Storm Scout SGC-2000-KKN1-GP Black Steel / Plastic ATX Mid Tower Computer Case

Pros: To be honest, I expected this case to be much cheaper quality. I am impressed thus far. The case has so many features and is designed very well. Cooler Master did well here. The tool-less bays are a breeze and work amazingly. They feel sturdy and the plastic components are very high density and well made. The included fans had me a bit worried because they use 4-pin molex connectors and I had a fear of noise. They are almost silent inside the case. They have wonderful airflow and the LED's are a nice touch. There are NO sharp corners in this case, so don't worry about cutting yourself. The removable bezel is wonderful and comes off with a nice tug. The whole front bezel is covered in dust filters which is a huge plus. Very sturdy, good weight, overall WONDERFUL case.

Cons: The acrylic window is very fragile and will crack easily. So, when attaching a fan, be very careful about the tension between the screw and the fan. There could be more cable management holes. The LED's aren't all that bright, but this might not be a con for others.

Overall Review: This is honestly my first really nice case, so to some people my review may come off as biased, but with my experience I would say this is a well rounded case and is the best one in the price range, without a doubt.

Most Critical Review

DOA.

MSI G31TM-P21 LGA 775 Intel G31 Micro ATX Intel Motherboard
MSI G31TM-P21 LGA 775 Intel G31 Micro ATX Intel Motherboard

Pros: Its a nice looking, small board. Good north/south bridge heatsinks, well designed. NewEgg, of course, packed this and my new XFX Radeon HD 4770 pretty well, no damage due to shipping. Fast shipping, cheap too! 1 Egg for NewEggs fast shipping!

Cons: Board was DOA (Dead on Arrilval). Would not POST, gave 3 long beeps. Tried RAM, CPU, nothing. Called up MSI tech support and they told me it was dead after about 30 seconds on the phone. MSI customer and tech support is absolutely TERRIBLE! last time I buy from MSI. Dont let this review scare you away, i bet its a good board when it actually works =]

Overall Review: I spent over 4 hours with MSI tech support on and offline, after finally connecting to some tech guy with no knowledge of hardware, after 3 seconds he told me his computer told him my motherboard is dead and that i need to RMA it.
