Great buy3/4/2015 12:13:30 PM

Pros: Great looking display, ridiculously wide.

Cons: None

Overall Review: I did have to macgyver together a dual link DVI to HDMI adapter and use an HDMI cable for this monitor. I have a GTX 560Ti, and it has no problem with this monitor's resolution, and I haven't had any issues with games at moderate to high settings. I easily average between 30-60fps.

Pros: -Cheap

Cons: -1st one DOA

Overall Review: I am on my second one of these. The first one was DOA. When I booted up my machine, it sounded like someone was scratching nails on a chalkboard. I RMA'd it, and the new one arrived within a couple days. The new one is working fine. So we'll see how it goes over the next year. I have another 3TB seagate drive that I've had for a year and a half, and haven't had any issues with.

Very happy with this case1/26/2015 7:39:34 AM

Pros: -Ample space -Lots of 3.5" slots -5 120mm fan slots -Nice window -Plenty of room for cable management -Easy to take apart and put back together

Cons: -No Intake filters

Overall Review: I know for a $45 case, I shouldn't expect the world. That said, this case has exceeded expectations. I would recommend getting some filters to cover your intakes. There's a lot of airflow in this case, so dust will be an issue. Also, the hard drive cage is riveted in place. It may lead to issues fitting extremely long graphics cards. Make sure to measure, and do your research before trying to cram a 12" or 13" card in there.

Great HTPC Case7/3/2014 9:09:38 PM

Pros: Plenty of room. I had no problem fitting a 500W PSU, BluRay burner, double slot low profile graphics card, TV tuner card, SSD, and hard drive in this case. Included fans are quiet.

Cons: No 2.5" bay. Not worth dropping an egg, but there's definitely space for one. Other than that, none, this is a pretty decent case.

Overall Review: A modular PSU would make things easier for cable management. Make sure to have a few zip ties handy. My unit got slightly tweaked in shipping, but not so much to have any real effect on installation. I had to tweak the drive cage slightly so that the optical drive would line up with the opening on the front of the case. Nothing worth losing an egg over. This thing is pretty deep. Measure your entertainment center before you order.

Works Great7/3/2014 9:00:01 PM

Pros: This mobo was very easy to install, everything dropped right in no problem. I didn't have any problems on initial start up, and didn't have any issues booting linux up off of a USB flash drive. Noctua L9a cooler mounted easily onto the board, and is cooling my CPU nicely. Installed some DDR3-1866 ram, and it had no problem recognizing it, and running it at full speed.

Cons: None

Overall Review: Make sure to check CPU compatibility on Gigabyte's site before you make your final order, it seems that other people have had issues. I put an X4 750k in this, and had absolutely no issues. I'd happily buy this board again for another build.

Great Cooler, well worth it!7/3/2014 8:55:01 PM

Pros: This is a great cooler for an HTPC. I was worried that the stock AMD cooler wouldn't cut it, especially in a low profile case, stuffed in a cabinet. This was pretty easy to install, after watching a youtube video. It doesn't seem to have any problems keeping the CPU cool, and does a pretty good job under load. The fan is very quiet, even under load. I can't hear it over the case fans or the GPU fan.

Cons: None

Overall Review: I was worried at first that this would have clearance issues with my RAM, it is extremely low, and seemed almost too broad. However, it clears the ram slots by about 2 or 3 mm so there is just enough space. Definitely watch a youtube video on installing this before you do it. It seems like it requires 4 hands to install, but it just requires setting the cooler down on a table or something, and placing the motherboard and CPU on top of it. System Specs: CPU, AMD Athlon Trinity X4 750K RAM, HyperX Fury Red Series, 8GB, DDR3-1866 GPU, XFX Radeon R7-250 Low Profile 1GB GDDR5 PSU, ThermalTake TR2-500W Mobo, Gigabyte GA-F2A88XM-HD3 Case, nMediaPC 1080P
