I love ITX

Thermaltake Element Q VL52021N2U Black SGCC / Plastic Mini-ITX Desktop Computer Case 200W SFX Power Supply
Thermaltake Element Q VL52021N2U Black SGCC / Plastic Mini-ITX Desktop Computer Case 200W SFX Power Supply

Pros: Great case I can fit anywhere. Nice color combo(black w/ red striping), This was a con @ first till i found a workaround. No holes for a case fan & getting temps i didnt like w/ that small heatsink in place. But I found out you can wedge a 120mm fan where the vertical HDD mount is. I swapped the stock fan on my scythe Big Shuriken for a bigger one so it was just sitting there. Took that fan, used a bit of force and now I have a 120mm fan cooling across the whole mobo. EPIC WIN!!!

Cons: 1.) Finding a right cpu heatsink/fan was a pain. Found this low profile thermaltake one, had to take off the fan mount and refasten the fan directly to the heatsink to get it to have enough clearance for the PSU directly above the MOBO

Overall Review: Great looking case, was bit frustrating @ first but hey, that's the fun of building your own computer; making it all work. Will be making more itx builds in the future

HyperX 8GB (2 x 4GB) 204-Pin DDR3 SO-DIMM DDR3 1600 HyperX Plug n Play Laptop Memory Model KHX1600C9S3P1K2/8G

Pros: Kingston Ram, Haven't had one fail on me yet.

Cons: It no longer, I repeat NO LONGER comes with the heatsinks. New Egg didn't care to mention that to customers & according to their reps they are not responsible for manufacturer revisions. Spoke with Kingston as well and the rep their had to find out from his boss that their laptop ram no longer comes with heatsinks. According to them it's because the form factor of laptops is getting to small for the heatsinks to fit.

Overall Review: It's fine if the manufacturer makes revisions but don't off your old stuff as though we're going to be happy with getting a product that isn't what you claim it to be. That's not right to consumers and I hope you all get out of this dishonest behavior

Not what is advertised

Pros: It's Kingston HyperX Ram. I have that in all my other rigs and they give no issue what so ever

Cons: What you get in the mail is not what is shown int he pictures. Big part of the reason I got this model was because here on NewEgg, Youtube, and even on Kingston's site they show these as coming with heat spreaders on both sides. The ones I got in the mail only came with a kingston sticker on one side of each heatsink like what they advertise on their 2x8GB model. I figured it was an honest mistake so I call up NewEgg and they arrange to have the correct set mailed to me next day. I get the package in the mail and I GOT THE EXACT SAME THING AGAIN. No heat spreaders, just stickers. Sell us what you show us, it's as simple as that!!

Overall Review: The manufacturer making revisions to a product are fine. What I have an issue with is the reseller not updating their product info and selling it as something that it isn't. This has got to be a 1st in all my experiences with NewEgg that they have completely failed in their customer service for me. Highly dissappointed.
