Good case

Cooler Master RC-690-KKN1-GP Black SECC/ ABS ATX Mid Tower Computer Case
Cooler Master RC-690-KKN1-GP Black SECC/ ABS ATX Mid Tower Computer Case

Pros: -Huge for a mid-size (id say almost full tower size!) -Can easily fit a 5850 gpu. -Mesh all around (except two sides) great for airflow. -7 spots for 120mm fans! -comes with 1 120mm LED (front) fan and 2 non-LED 120s. -bottom-mounted psu spot, great for airflow (maybe con see below)

Cons: -front panel more difficult to remove than it should be. -bottom-mounted psu spot barely reaches the 4pin 12V cpu power slot. -side fan spots badly engineered. -no clear side

Overall Review: Overall, an awesome case, I really like it, especially for the price!. A few things to keep in mind: -The front panel was THE most difficult one i've ever faced (and i've worked with many, many cases before). Took me atleast half an hour + another person's help to take it off without hurting myself. -I have a modular psu, and even with that, my cpu power connector barely reaches to the spot. Right now i have a thinner, slightly smaller gpu, so people with thicker dual slot gpus be careful. -The side fan spots are loud. Replacing a with a different fan will NOT help (i've tried), the way they cut the air holes on the sides somehow amplifies the noise level of the fans greatly. As a small tip, i've actually mounted my two side fans OUTSIDE the case, and that cuts down the noise level by about 50%. Still, for regular use when i'm not gaming, I keep the two side fans disconnected. Even with those cons, I give the case 5 eggs! I really like it.

Mixed bag

MASSCOOL PCI Card, 1 external SATA + 2 internal SATA and 1 internal IDE Model XWT-RC018
MASSCOOL PCI Card, 1 external SATA + 2 internal SATA and 1 internal IDE Model XWT-RC018

Pros: Detected and runs a secondary sata HDD on older system no problem. Installed XP driver with included CD flawless. 3 sata ports

Cons: Although you can run secondary drives off of it, you CAN'T boot from it! The card doesn't include a bios that you can boot from. Therefore, OS will NOT run off hdd's connected to card. Also, I can't enable write caching/cache (of my sata hdd) on this card. When I try my hdd on a different computer, cache can be enabled.

Overall Review: Don't know what to say. A Mixed bag. I guess I had too high expectations.

Stunning Monitor!

LG W2353V-PF Black 23" 2ms(GTG) HDMI Full HD 1080P Widescreen LCD Monitor 300 cd/m2 50000:1 w/ Smart Package
LG W2353V-PF Black 23" 2ms(GTG) HDMI Full HD 1080P Widescreen LCD Monitor 300 cd/m2 50000:1 w/ Smart Package

Pros: -1920x1080 -2ms response time -50,000:1 CR (Deep blacks!) -23'' -fancy-looking (I like the design!) -touch-sensitive buttons. -HDMI + audio out port -decent price point -NO DEAD PIXELS!!

Cons: -switching between display ports take a little while (6-7 seconds). But most of the time, i stay on one port anyway. -touch sensitive buttons takes a little getting used to. At first the menu options were confusing (because its hard to read the imprints on the monitor)

Overall Review: I don't know about other people, but the default brightness settings are wayyy to high! The monitor came with brightness at 100% and contrast at 70%; way overkill. With a little adjustment, i put the brightness all the way down and the contrast at 40%; now everything looks just fine.

Good Fan

Rosewill RFA-120-BL - 120mm Computer Case Cooling Fan with LP4 Adapter - Blue Frame & 4 Blue LED Lights, Sleeve Bearing, Silent Case Fan
Rosewill RFA-120-BL - 120mm Computer Case Cooling Fan with LP4 Adapter - Blue Frame & 4 Blue LED Lights, Sleeve Bearing, Silent Case Fan

Pros: -Moves a lot of air -Quiet -Cheap -Blue LEDs -3 pin to 4 pin molex adapter

Cons: -Unthreaded screw holes for fan mounting. Meaning, most likely one time use per side.

Overall Review: Because its unthreaded, its a bit harder to screw it in. But once its in, its sturdy as a rock.

Pros: Nice fan, moves a lot of air. Only a little noise. Cool big LEDs.

Cons: Durability?

Overall Review: Out of the two that I bought, the one that i installed in the front of the case is starting to make a little more noise than it used to. Only been two months so far.

Pros: Moves quite a bit of air. Easy to install. Keeps my vid card a few degrees cooler; but more importantly, provides another exhaust option.

Cons: None.

Overall Review: No breakdowns or weird sounds...yet.
