Beautiful!

Rosewill R102-P-BK 120mm Fan MicroATX Mid Tower Computer Case
Rosewill R102-P-BK 120mm Fan MicroATX Mid Tower Computer Case

Pros: So tiny compared to my GFs case (also a Rosewill). 4850 fit just fine in it. Front USB & headphone jack wire is well built compared to some I've seen, haven't heard any static through it due to bad insulation. I love the case completely, and wouldn't choose another if I had a choice. Super cheap too.

Cons: The front plastic panel was coming off because when I put in my DVD drive I apparently bent the lower drive's metal punch out. After I removed it the front fit just fine. The DVD Drive button was also not aligned perfectly for my DVD Drive, I fixed it with a little sticky pad. The 120mm fan was blocking my heatsink installation a little bit and it was somewhat difficult to get in! Could have removed it but I'm too lazy. no place for CPU / GPU stickers! :(

Overall Review: I really like Rosewill and will definitely purchase their cases in the future.

Most Critical Review

Lasted about a week

Pros: Great, cheap, someone fast at around 75MB/s read/write

Cons: Started clicking in a week, it now only reads / writes at 8MB/s / 2MB/s

Overall Review: I wouldn't ever buy a recertified drive for something important, this was for use as a dedicated recording HDD for FRAPS. Worked well for that.

Best value heat sink.

Pros: This thing's awesome. Using it in 2 PC's and it keeps things below 40c most of the time - with the extra fan added.

Cons: A bit hard to get on the first time.

Works, cheap.

Pros: Came with all the screws you need, plus a molex connector.

Cons: None?

Overall Review: Runs fine, PC isn't much louder, but the loudness isn't important to me.

Works great.

Pros: Very fast for the money (got it for very cheap open box). Runs games max at my low resolutions. Only runs at 55 degrees when I'm gaming, too.

Cons: New ATI drivers don't seem to be working with it correctly, ATI Overdrive just resets whenever I change the values. Another OC app works, though. (I'd still like to use Overdrive).

Overall Review: Would buy again if I could get it for the same price, but I'd prefer a 5770.

Pros: Amazing purchase! Looks awesome, it's cheap, and it's fast! Havn't had any issues with it since purchase.

Cons: SPD safemode, had to manually change it to 1600 and set the speeds and voltage.

Overall Review: Works great and I'm buying more of this if I need it.
