Cheap in Price and Quality

XCLIO Coolbox Fully Black Finish 0.5 mm SECC Chassis/ ABS Frontpanel ATX Mid Tower Computer Case w/ 2pcs 180mm fans
XCLIO Coolbox Fully Black Finish 0.5 mm SECC Chassis/ ABS Frontpanel ATX Mid Tower Computer Case w/ 2pcs 180mm fans

Pros: Big fans that keep the air really flowing. Cheap.

Cons: This case is very cheap in price as well as construction. As others have stated, some parts on the inside are really sharp as each time I've worked with it I've come out with a few nicks. Both fans were stuck when I first tested power to them, giving them a nudge with a pencil unstuck them. I had to fiddle with them a bit more to get them from rubbing the sides of the case/fan case.

Overall Review: If you're looking for a budget case this one will work fine. Just remember, the quality you're going to get is about as cheap as the case.

Most Critical Review

Good Board *but*

ASUS P5B-VM LGA 775 Intel G965 Express Micro ATX Intel Motherboard

Pros: Packed nicely with a few extra cables. It has newer components on the board as well.

Cons: I had to RMA my first board. One of the chips on the board actually sparked and I had to dodge the burning ball of plastic with my cat-like reflexes. Surprisingly the board still booted and I could even boot into Windows. I don't know what the hell the chip did but it completely burnt out, hole and everything.

Overall Review: Good board, I probably just got a defect the first time. Waiting for my replacement now.
