Nice cooler1/29/2020 11:50:40 AM

Pros: The CPU mounting bracket is very easy to use and install.

Cons: Screw holes over painted which made attaching the fans difficult

Overall Review: Great cooler, works well. My only complaint is the paint covers the screw holes and it was very difficult to attach the fans to the radiator and the radiator to the case. Be prepared to fiddle with it.

Works as it should1/29/2020 11:46:11 AM

Pros: Nice power supply All modular

Cons: I was a little confused with the hybrid fan controll. With the switch out, I think the fan only turns on when it gets too hot. I pushed the switch in and the fan runs all the time which is what I wanted.

Overall Review: I'd buy it again

Just what you want - fan splitter - how can you go wrong?12/9/2018 5:44:12 AM

Pros: Works as advertized

Cons: short - but I only needed a little bit of length - I'd guess it is 4 inches long

Overall Review: if you need a splitter then this works just fine.

Big / Small case / Classy and Stylish look12/9/2018 5:40:14 AM

Pros: Its big enough to work in and small enough to fit on a desk or under cabinets without being a huge obvious tower. About 14 x 14 x 8". I liked that it used a standard PSU and not some mini brick power supply. I liked I could fit a standard AIO water cooler in it. Dust covers Pop off front panel Glass side panel USB 3.0 on top front panel (although my Z68 board can't take advantage of it) I think it has great looks - clean, modern. sleek

Cons: Depending on where your ITX motherboard fan headers are you may need an extension cable for AIO CPU cooler. On an older Asrock Z68M board I could not reach the fan headers with a DEEPCOOL Captain 120. You can only use the front fan space for an AIO cooler. The case comes pre-mounted with 2 fans, top and rear. When the MB is mounted there is no room for the AIO in the top position. Maybe in the rear position but it is too crowded with the MB right there. Best place is in front and there is a good 12" from the front of the case to the rear edge of the MB No front 5.25" external bay. The world seems to be moving away from DVD/Bu-ray players in computers. I have embraced that but not willingly. I still like the idea of having one built in.

Overall Review: I was using a Silverstone Sugo SG06B w 300 PSU case. The PSU died after 6 years and the stock intel CPU fan died. I was getting CPU temps from 60 to 90 C. Decided to get a water cooled solution and have had good luck with the DEEPCOOL Captain 120 so I needed a case that would fit it and a new power supply. At the time of the original build I was going for small and compact but I have found that there are just too many compromises with trying to cram that much electronics into such a small space. I have used the NZXT S340 ATX case before and like them but the are discontinued. Bought the H500 for a build and liked that and now bought the H200 for ITX build. Bottom line - well thought out case. Easy to work on and in. Edited later Dec 2018 - - - - Second build with this case but using a Gigabyte board. If the Input / Outputs of the the board are positioned to the left (west) then all the connectors on the top of the board (north) are right next to the top mounted case fan. I had to strategically zip tie the cables down so they do not interfere with the function of the top case mount fan. So whatever board you use, be aware that one side of the motherboard will be very close to the top case fan and you will have to insure the cables are free and clear of its functioning. I wish they had given you a bit more room in this area.

Great board for mini office computer - filled with goodness12/9/2018 5:21:03 AM

Pros: All the bells and whistles in a small package - 2 x m.2 sockets! It even has wifi if you don't have an internet connection near your desk (but I did so didn't use it) It has blue tooth, dual ethernet ports, USB 3.1 port, a USB C port Everything you need !

Cons: Only 3 fan headers - I needed a splitter cable to run the 2 case fans plus the AIO cooler fan and pump. Only as an HDMI connector - not a problem for me - just pointing it out.

Overall Review: So if you want small and extremely functional this is a great board. Love the Gigabyte BIOS, and their APP center (mainly use @BIOS to update the BIOS and their Smartfan to set the fan speed and alarms) My build consisted of a NZXT H200 case, this MB, 8 GB of Gskill Ripjaws 2666 ram, 8100 i3 chip, seasonic gold 450 PSU, samsung 970 evo m.2 500 gb drive, and deepcooler captain 120 EX cpu cooler I installed the APP center first, used @BIOS to update to F11 Bios (I think the board came with F7), and installed these drivers from Gigabytes web site Realtek Audio Driver 2018/6/14 8454 Intel INF installation 2018/07/05 [10.1.17695.8086] Intel Management Engine Interface 2018/06/06 [11.8.50.3470] Intel LAN driver 2018/06/25 23.2 Intel SATA Preinstall driver 2018/06/20 [16.5.0.1027] Intel Optane Memory driver 2018/06/20 [16.5.0.1027] Intel Rapid Storage driver 2018/06/20 [16.5.0.1027] Asmedia 3.1 USB driver [1.16.38.1] 2017/09/26 VGA driver [100.6291] 2018/09/20

Useful to way to clone a drive12/6/2018 9:47:26 AM

Pros: Easy to use. It worked.

Cons: Gets very warm.

Overall Review: I was trying to clone a Samsung SSD to a Samsung m.2 drive and install it on a new motherboard that had an M.2 slot. Samsung magician did not recognize the m.2 through the USB port. Macrium Reflect software did allow me to clone the SSD to the m.2 via this USB holder and in the end it all worked out fine.

It's great!11/27/2018 1:08:22 PM

Pros: If your motherboard only has 2 fan headers (older Z77 mini-ITX board) and you are using a AIO cooler then both of those fan headers are used. There is no place to hook up the case fans. This little dongle allows you to plug in a molex power connector and choose to run the case fans at either half speed or full speed. Two of the splitters are 5V and two are 12 V. I used the 5V connectors and the fans spin sufficiently to cool the ITX board in a NXZT i200 case.

Cons: Labeling could be better since the only labeling is on the exterior of the package. For those who throw away the packaging the Red / black wire ones are 5V and the yellow black ones are 12V

Overall Review: Very useful product when you need it. Recommend you get a couple.

Everything you need and nothing you don't11/27/2018 12:43:49 PM

Pros: The Seasonic FOCUS series 450W Gold rated power supply is perfect for an office PC with an i3 chip. It is semi-modular but you need the 24 and 8 pin plugs for the motherboard so going full modular doesn’t really matter to me. Since I built 3 office computers and they were not running graphics cards I felt that 450 was plenty of power. No problems with them, fan is very quiet. I used an NZXT S340 case and mounted the PSU so the fan blows out the case. Worked for me. Nice units

Cons: No cons for me.

Overall Review: I built 3 of these for my office. For the typical office / student setting they are fast and efficient with plenty of storage space for the average office setting – word processing, spreadsheets, quickbooks, and the internet. For 80% of users this would be a great PC build. Anyone who is going to do anything with music, video, or hard gaming would probably want something different. All the products below worked well together and I had 0 DOA products. My under $800 build consisted of: O.S.

Nice and big11/27/2018 12:18:12 PM

Pros: It's big! Sharp text. Front mounted control buttons. Black friday pricing was awesome

Cons: Speakers are tinny. You can hear them but you wouldn't want to listen to music on them. In my office setting they are fine. Even at 100% they are weak. Not sure why people are taking an egg off for them - its a monitor not a sound bar.

Overall Review: The monitors came with brightness on 100%. I cut it down to 50% (via the front mounted control buttons) and left it on eco mode. Eco mode dims it a bit which is fine in an office setting.

I really like the mounting system - easy to work with11/21/2018 1:03:14 AM

Pros: The Deepcool Captain 120 EX does a good job with the i3 processor. Idle temps are around 27 C and I have not seen them go higher than 35 C. The tubing is stiff and depending on the location and dimensions of the case, may make you get creative with the positioning of the unit. In the NZXT S340 case I used, I put it in the front of the case and placed the fan in a pull configuration. Worked out OK but I did spend some time scratching my head over where and how to place it. I liked the way this product attaches to the CPU. The motor unit screws onto the two long bars of the mounting system with 2 screws. This makes it easier to juggle the unit when you only have to deal with 2 screws. The mounting bars are held on with 4 screw knobs that are easy to deal with.

Cons: Limited flexibility of the tubing.

All are working and all are easy to mount. It's my go to AIO now. CPU temps are 27-34 while being used all a day in an office setting.

Nice, clean, modern stylish case3/17/2018 5:13:00 PM

Pros: All builds revolve around the case, don’t they? The size of the board, and the size of graphics card, and the fans, external bays, etc all revolve around the case. I spent a fair amount of time looking at cases and my goal was small office computers. I have built mini-ITX computers but other than being smaller they don’t really save you any money and ultimately make things more difficult. I decided not to have any external drives since they seem to be going away as people move to USB drives and downloads. I also decided to use a standard ATX board so in my hunt to find a small ATX case I found the NZXT S340. I like the white. It’s different, clean, modern. Cable management is good. There is room for everything but not a lot of wasted space. If you are only using a M.2 drive all that drive bay area is wasted space but I still like the case. It comes with 2 fans – 1 mounted on the top and 1 mounted in the rear. They are both 3 pin fans. I was hoping for 4 pin fans but in the end it I guess it doesn’t really matter. Both fans are hooked together with 1 molex connector to power both. I guess I could have unhooked them and attached them to the motherboard but I was lazy. The fans are quiet and cool the case well. The only other fan positions are 2 x 120 mm front fan slots. I used a Deepcool Captain 120EX as my CPU cooler and figuring out how to mount it was challenging. Should I put it in the rear, top or front position? Push or pull configuration? I ultimately put it in the front lower fan position because of the length of of the tubing and the fan is pulling air into the case through the radiator. I did this because the top and rear fans were pushing air out of the case. Seems to work fine as CPU temps are 27 C and I have not seen it go above 35 C. Overall I really dig this case – fits a full size ATX motherboard but fairly small and it looks sharp

Cons: No cons for me. I like the cases.

For the typical office / student setting they are fast and efficient with plenty of storage space for the average office setting – word processing, spreadsheets, quickbooks, and the internet.

All the sticks I bought worked from the get go.3/17/2018 5:09:10 PM

Pros: The Gskill Ram F4-2800C16D-8GVR worked well with my Gigabyte board. I debated 4, 8 or 16 GB of RAM and decided 16 was overkill for an office computer and price was a factor since prices are historically high for RAM. I went with 2 x 4 GB modules to take advantage of dual channel versus just using 1 stick of 8 GB RAM. Not sure it makes much difference but there was not a price advantage either way. All sticks on my 3 computer build worked fine and at the rated speed once I went into the BIOS and changed the XMP setting to Profile 1.

Cons: Too expensive. I remember buying RAM at 1/2 the cost of this.

No problems installing or setting it up, BIOS easy to work with.3/17/2018 5:06:06 PM

Pros: The Z370 HD3P ATX motherboard had everything I was looking for. Simple straight forward with the ability to use an 8th gen intel chip and a M.2 slot. I didn’t need anything fancy and those were my only two requirements. I’ve used Gigabyte boards before and some Asrock boards and my experience has been better with Gigabyte boards. I like the Gigabyte BIOS better. That said, how many times do you really mess with the BIOS? The 3 boards I got all shipped with F5 BIOS and at the time of this review the latest is F6c. I downloaded Win 10 pro to a USB drive and went to the Gigabyte site and downloaded all the latest drivers on to the same USB drive in a separate folder I just called GB. After windows did it’s install, it was a bit overwhelming to decide what to install. No clue if I am right or wrong but I only installed the following and installed it in this order. Install APP Center Install @BIOS software from folder Install latest BIOS F6c via APP Center install these drivers from USB drive Chipset both of these folders ME_SW_MSI and Chipset 10.1.1.45 LAN driver USB 3.1 driver VGA driver Realtek Setup CFOS SGX On/Off GBOSD folder and install Direct X (pick folder on C drive, unzip, go to folder, run dxsetup) GBOSD folder and install app SIV PPM Overall it worked for me and I was very happy with my build. Good luck! As far as the BIOS goes, everything was default setting and I only changed the following (follow along in the MB manual) Under MIT Extreme Memory Profile to Profile 1(I used RAM that was higher speed than 2100) Smart Fan 5 settings Temp Warn and Fan Fail Warn - enabled all Under System I just set the Date and Time Under Peripherals Initial Display Output to IGFX Intel BIOS Guard Tech – Enable Smarter people than me can probably tell you what all the settings mean and do but I just did the above.

Cons: I'd like to see a mini ITX board that just has CPU, RAM, and an M.2 slot but as far as cons go for this board I don't have any.

Pros: USB to a SSD - freaking awesome

Cons: Could be longer cord but whatever.

Overall Review: I didn't even know these cords existed! I had some docking bay I was going to use and stumbled across this cord. If I had known about it sooner I would have bought one just to have. Cloned a Corsair SSD to a Samsung SSD using Samsung migration software and this cord. Swapped the drives and the angels sung! Loving it!

Works great, looks great, reasonably priced11/25/2017 6:45:09 PM

Pros: Has LED build in the motherboard Has a M.2 port for your onboard SSD which is 4 times faster than SATA3 All the connectors and USB ports you could want Reasonably priced RGB support on the motherboard

Cons: None I can think of

Overall Review: It stated it doesn't support gen 8 processors so I just bought an i3 gen 7 processor. How much difference can there be? I love the Gigabyte utilities - great BIOS access, RGB access, I had no problems loading Win 10 home and updating the drivers . Downloading Win 10 updates took a long time but that ins't Gigabytes problem

Easy to install11/25/2017 6:33:55 PM

Pros: Easy to install (despite the pictograph instructions) Pretty white to go with Stryke Master case - internal fan lights up and pulses like a heart beat (sweet!)

Cons: Instructions not that clear but I muddled my way through it.

Overall Review: I wasn't sure which side to put the fans on. So I put the radiator at the top of the case. The fans are sandwiched between the top of the case and the radiator and the fans pull the through the radiator and out the top of the case. Not sure if this was the best way but it works for me.

The most awesome case I have ever worked on (for my grandkid)11/25/2017 6:27:07 PM

Pros: Huge, roomy, lots of screws, nuts, bolts, fans etc. It's looks great! I love cooler master cases and have a HAF X case and seriously wanted to get this case and move my build. I've built about a dozen computers all with different cases and I like this one the best. If you are looking for a full size tower, with a window and external bays this is all you need.

Cons: The 200 mm fan can only fit at the top

Overall Review: I added a DEEPCOOL Gamer Storm CAPTAIN 240EX WHITE CPU Liquid Cooler to the motherboard and placed the radiator in the top, this displaced the provided 200 mm fan and there was no other place to put it. The two 120mm fans on the left side of the case can be relocated to the front with a little work. Watch the newegg video to see how it's done.
