Pros: Silent. Literally. No noise escapes this case. Fits a GTX 660 with room to spare. Tons of HDD space.
Overall Review: This case is incredible. I fit a GTX 660 with 3 HDDs in this thing with room to spare. With all the case fans, CPU fan, GPU fan, and all the HDDs, this case is still absolutely silent. Everything runs cool and silently. The HDDs are a little awkward to connect to the mobo, due to the location of the cages, but with a little patience it isn't too bad. Definitely recommend.
Pros: Lots of great features, connections, and supported RAM speeds.
Cons: BIOS is kinda funky to work with. Odd place for SATA ports
Overall Review: The SATA ports were not in a good place with my case so it was really tricky to plug my HDDs in. I'm not sure if it's just my case or all Micro ATX cases, but definitely took awhile and some patience to get the cables in properly once the board was in the case. The BIOS is also kinda weird to work with and shows the splash screen twice every boot (cold or warm) and wake, which is odd. Other than that, it works flawlessly and powers my rig nicely. Would solidly recommend.
Pros: Powers all my games on high detail and no-to-low AA.
Overall Review: You need to set expectations when getting a graphics card. This is not a super high-end card so you can't expect to put AA all the way up with ultra graphics, but it can handle almost everything I throw at it. It also fits in a Micro ATX case, so another plus. Definitely recommend.
Pros: Powers my gaming / development rig no problem
Cons: Not modular so any extra cables just sit there. Not enough SATA power cables
Overall Review: Overall, I'm pleasantly surprised with this PSU. It powers an i5, 8GB RAM, superclocked GTX 660, 2 HDDs, and 1 SSD without fail, all in a Micro ATX case. It's unfortunate that it isn't modular and definitely could use another SATA power cable or two, but not a deal breaker by any means.
Pros: Not i7 fast, but this CPU works great for anything short of extremely high intensive things. Works great for development, gaming, and everyday use.
Cons: Fan cable can get in the way of the fan. Make sure you remove it from the holders
Overall Review: The cable for the fan would somehow / sometimes get in the way of the fan and slow it down and make an awful noise. I'd recommend removing the cable from the holders and letting it float in the case to make sure your fan spins up enough and you don't wear down the wire shielding.
Pros: Inexpensive, fast, fit in my Micro ATX case
Overall Review: This ram does exactly what it says...works great in my Micro ATX case with an i5. No performance problems or installations problems at all. Works exactly as it says.
Pros: Does its job well. Put the fan on High, not that loud and keeps the whole case and power supply cool. More than enough power.
Overall Review: Would recommend for an ATX case.
Pros: Works well, very accurate. Nice features, comfortable feel. Solid quality.
Overall Review: Would recommend.
Pros: Easy to put in, easy to use. Kinda loud on full spin, but thats to be expected.
Cons: Seems to open after closing once and awhile, not often. Could be due to the case button, but not entirely sure. doesnt affect the overall use.
Pros: Does what its supposed to. Easy to put on, works well.
Pros: Good processor. Runs fast, quad core, does exactly what it says.
Cons: Runs a little hot (80-90) under a load. The stock heatsink/fan is difficult to put it. Plastic push-pins which makes you feel like your gunna break/bend your board when you put it in.
Overall Review: Good processor, would suggest it.
Pros: Solid build. Comes with 2 fans. Good ventilation. Easy to carry.
Cons: The LED wires aren't very long, which can make wiring a little bit of an adventure. Comes with a red SATA cable built in which I have no idea what the other end connects to.
Overall Review: Overall, great case.
Pros: Easy to install, cool colors, fits an 8800 GTS easily. Nice chipset setup. Runs around 100 degrees with my case (1 side fan, 1 back fan)
Cons: SATA Interfaces kinda difficult to reach with my case (NZXT Alpha Black Steel case)
Overall Review: Everything is easy to plug in, configure (great BIOS), well worth the buy.
Pros: Its wide? Overall good aesthetics?
Cons: I bought one...it came with stuck pixels (which happens, whatever), RMA'd it. Wait two weeks for it to get to Cali, another 3 days for another to ship...and after all that, more stuck pixels on the new one. Plus, the base wouldnt come off. Terrible product, stay away. Buy from brick and mortar store, then you can check it before you buy it and not pay 240 + shipping both ways and have 2 dead monitors.
Overall Review: [sarcasm] Great quality control by Acer [/sarcasm]
Pros: Easy to install (obv, its ram). No tweaking necessary. Will try overclocking later, but so far no issues at all.
Pros: Good capacity for the price. SATA interface made it nice and easy, no jumpers required. Bought 3, all 3 came and work fine.
Overall Review: Adding the second one to my system required me to change the bios settings for master and slave, but nothing major.
Pros: Good, Solid build. Comfortable to type on.
Cons: Keys are a little big (high off the base) for my taste, compared to a a laptop, which is what im used to.
Overall Review: overall, solid keyboard. Good buy if you just need a basic keyboard.
