Quiet and Clean

NZXT H2 H2-001-BK Black Steel / Plastic Classic Silent ATX Mid Tower Chassis
NZXT H2 H2-001-BK Black Steel / Plastic Classic Silent ATX Mid Tower Chassis

Pros: -Minimalistic Design -Quiet even with fans on high -Able to hide all wires behind motherboard tray -Hot swap bay -Comes with 3 fans. Room for 2 more. -USB 3.0

Cons: -Door doesn't swing open much beyond a 90 degree angle. -Harddrive trays are a bit difficult

Overall Review: The issues mentioned below are issues, however, I believe in this case the sum is greater than the parts and shouldn't be knocked for a few difficulties.

Most Critical Review

4 Months then died

Linksys E1000 802.11b/g/n Wireless Broadband Router up to 300Mbps/ 10/100 Mbps Ethernet Port x4
Linksys E1000 802.11b/g/n Wireless Broadband Router up to 300Mbps/ 10/100 Mbps Ethernet Port x4

Pros: Sleek looking. Worked when it worked

Cons: I bought this for an apartment I share with four people and it died a couple of days ago. I can't even log into the router to see what is wrong. I tested it at every ethernet port in the apartment to make sure something wasn't wrong with our internet.

Overall Review: I feel this is an anomaly, but still.

Pros: -Quiet -Fast -No flashy stickers or design with the cooler Ran Metro 2033 on all high, no problem.

Cons: I can't think of any. I love ATI

Too small

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

Pros: Nice case Great features First build I used it in everything went flawless. My friend is very happy with it, loves the look, and loves the handle.

Cons: I was working on a build for a friend and recommended this case because it was wonderful in my last build (see pros). However, on this current build (we are actually going to look for a new case at our local computer store) we were not able to fit his new Radeon HD 5870. On his AM3 motherboard the PCI E x 16 slot is one slot down too far and caused the card to hit the bracket between the CD Drive Cage and the Hard Drive cage. Being a Mid Tower ATX case I would expect more. I put his graphics card in the Antec 900 and everything was fine. Moral of the story? Becareful with this case, it really is a great case, however if you are putting in a radeon HD 5870 be careful.

Pros: It fits in my case It looks cool

Cons: From day one I've had issues with this cooler. The first time I had it mounted to blow air the wrong way (poor documentation) and used Arctic Silver as my thermal paste. My I7 2.6 @ 4.2 idled at 45 c. Recently I decided to remount it so that air was actually blowing the direction of all my other fans, this time i used a starforce thermal pad, it idles at 43 c without my overclock. With the overclock it idles at around 66. I'm going to try and remount it again with Arctic Silver, however, If i don't get performance like everyone else is reporting. This 1 egg will stand and I will find a new fan and heatsink.

great for the price

Pros: Lightweight Sleek Design Bang for the buck

Cons: horrible built in speakers a little slow at first, but for the cost of a netbook, who can complain.

Overall Review: If you're like me and didn't like the idea of owning a netbook but didn't need a laptop to supplement your already expensive desktop this is the way to go. Also, once you disable the UAC vista runs fine.
