Cougar QBX Mini-ITX10/2/2017 3:16:43 PM

Pros: cheap well laid out mini itx case that supports standard power supply, can have up to 240 mm rad at bottom or 120mm rad

Cons: power cord limits the choice of power supplies that you can use, the fan opening for the power supply restricts airflow slightly, slimline optical bay accepts slot loading drives only, no reset button, putting a 240 mm rad in bottom prevents you from installing a graphics card

Example: Great product easy to work with8/21/2017 10:49:10 PM

Pros: an excellent case with many possibilities for a custom water cooling loop and many additional fan locations, case has screws together instead of riveted together like most cases, included fans are of good quality, and the windowed version includes a power supply cover

Cons: only includes 1 ssd bracket when it has 4 locations to put it, fan hub but no manual fan controls, small reset button (nitpicky)

Overall Review: overall best case i have had purchased makes me want to build a loop in it

Cheap full tower with a side window3/16/2017 10:22:42 PM

Pros: support for my 240mm radiator at the top, cable management behind the right side panel is pretty good, easy case to build in and the easy access to the fans, cpu cooler support is good

Cons: the clip on the front dust cover protrudes into the path of the top fan preventing it from spinning making it a design flaw, cheap hard drive sleds, only includes two fans

Antec GX5001/26/2015 9:17:24 PM

Pros: the top and front panels with the locks make it much easier to install case fans, the 2 fan speed controllers, rubber pads for psu, removable dust filters

Cons: knock outs for the pci slots, the 2.5" hard drive mount,

Overall Review: computer is not yet done, antec's website specifies that it can house a cpu cooler that is 158mm in height

cheap mid tower case10/27/2014 11:59:12 PM

Pros: cheap midtower case with bottom mount psu, option for 5 more 120mm case fans, free shipping is always a nice option, the white is a nice departure from the black cases we have gotten use to since beige.

Cons: bought to soon for $24.99 instead of the current sale of $19.99, cable managment isn't that great, the plastic and steel don't match well in color

Overall Review: don't see why there is a large price difference between the white and black one, needed a place to install old parts my brother got rid of amd fx6100, asrock 990fx extreme 3, kingston ddr3 1600 4gb x2, sapphire radeon hd 7870, kingston 120gb ssd, hitachi 500gb hdd, antec basiq 550w.

Great micro atx motherboard9/8/2014 7:47:28 PM

Pros: future upgradeability, z97 chipset with 8 phase power delivery, support for crossfire and sli configurations, many fan headers, killer lan, uefi is much easier to use than the one on my 990fx extreme 3, the motherboard layout and colors are pleasing, cheap

Cons: there isn't realy any this is a really cheap feature rich motherboard money can buy at this time

Overall Review: building my first intel nvidia computer and didn't want to spend to much money on it and ended up getting this board for a much more compact build than a full tower i have with my amd computer. build: Asrock z97m oc formula zotac geforce gtx770 amped edition in sli raidmax rx1000ae 1000 watt psu team elite vulcan ddr3 2133 4gbx4 pny optima 240gb ssd wb caviar green 2tb corsair h80i cooler master n200 windows 8.1 64bit

Good Micro-Atx Tower9/8/2014 7:38:21 PM

Pros: wid variety of cpu coolers can fit into the case, big mobo cut out for cpu removal, 2.5" ssd,hdd can be secured to the motherboard tray

Cons: only one usb 3.0, if putting a 120 aio water cooler on the back 120mm fan opening it makes it so you can't put a fan on the side panel, back side panel with all psu cables is a snug fit, have to route the 8 4+4 or 4 pin motherboard connector behind motherboard.

Overall Review: was able to fit 2 gtx 770's and a h80i in this case with ease other than it got tight with everything in the case.

ECS A970M-A4/20/2013 2:28:55 AM

Pros: layout, 7.1 channel audio with toslink, a all black pcb, the gold theme is eyecatching, the click bios is easy to use don't know what the other reviewers are up to,

Cougar GX10502/23/2013 12:46:58 AM

Pros: 6 +12v rails that are clearly labeled, heavy quality construction, 80+ gold certified, semi-modular,

Cons: the flat modular cables are kinda neat but are not as flexible as standard cables, each plug on the modular cables is like they where dessigned for the psu to be in a top mount case instead of a bottom mounted one, to many cpu power leads on one cable,

Overall Review: came with a case badge, and velcro straps with logo on them

AZZA Hurrican 20002/23/2013 12:37:32 AM

Pros: comes with all the included fans, aggresive looks, fan controller on the back for top fans, 4 hot swappable hard drive bays, 2 ssd drive mounts included, motherboard mounts preinstalled in proper holes, removable dust filters for psu and optional bottom mount fan, easily removable 5.25 drive covers,

Cons: one downside to this case is all fans are 4 pin molex wish they had 3 pin instead since my motherboard has loads of fan headers on not worth taking an egg off of it though, only one usb 3.0 when most cases have 2, small reset switch, almost everything requires molex

psu2/19/2013 11:37:45 PM

Pros: antec, semi-modular, 80+ certified

Cons: my power supply did not come with the 2 sata cables that is in the description for the users manual i ended up instead getting 2 molex and 2 molex with floppy connectors, which has brought my build to a dead stop and antecs website is currently out of stock

Overall Review: lets hope antec can get through to me for a replacement on the cables

Cons: none

Overall Review: after a little burn in time with the paste temps are about on par with Tuniq's better product the TX-4 with upgrade processor

Logisys MC3002gx7/23/2012 10:08:55 PM

Pros: cheap 120mm hsf, fan design is kinda cleaver, easy simple install for stock amd motherboard mount, thermal compound pre applied, light heatsink, much quiter than stock hsf, height wasn't issue when installing in case

Cons: no clip for an extra fan for push pull, thermal compound preapplied, might not work to well for overclock on amd phenom ii x4 955be,

Raidmax RX-850AE4/5/2012 10:31:48 PM

Pros: price at the time $89.99 for 850 watt 80+ gold psu, semi modular, neat parts box that was included, free shipping is was a plus

Cons: wish the pci-e cables didn't have that 6+2 pin just wired into the other 6+2 pin but guess it cuts down on cable mess

Overall Review: powers a gaming rig stabely put try to overclock and see if the issues some had about the voltage readings drop hopefully not

PowerColor AX67503/21/2012 7:03:19 PM

Pros: Cheap, dx11 card, 1gb, decent sized cooling fan and block

Cons: nothing included for hardware other than quick installation guide and the installation cd, no crossfire adapter plug, gddr3

Overall Review: if someone has a psu that doesn't have any pci-e adapters how they gonna power it without the molex to pci-e adapter.

Manufacturer Response:
Modern day power supplies with adequate power will already have anywhere from 1 - 6 PCIe power plugs. If the power supply does not have that plug, then more than likely the power supply does not have adequate enough wattage for the system's component + a new video card that requires 6pin PCIe power plug. Thank you, Jonathan
