Most Favorable Review

It actually suprised me

RAIDMAX Hyperion MATX-102WBU Black / Blue Aluminum / Plastic / Steel Micro ATX Computer Case
RAIDMAX Hyperion MATX-102WBU Black / Blue Aluminum / Plastic / Steel Micro ATX Computer Case

Pros: Very sexy Hidden PSU Interesting HDD mount Nice size

Cons: none

Overall Review: For the price of this case I was suprised. It has a very VERY good build quality and looks just absolutely sexy to me. I also own a Phanteks Enthoo Luxe and honestly I'd take the Hyperion over it any day. This case is the perfect size and with plenty of room for cable management. Having all the essentials that most dont want to see tucked in the side was a very good idea. This case is wonderful, and honestly had I not bought this case I wouldn't ever give Raidmax a second glance.

Most Critical Review

Looks good

Phanteks PH-LEDKT_M2 Multi Colors LED Strip 2m Specified for Phanteks Enthoo Luxe Case Upgrade
Phanteks PH-LEDKT_M2 Multi Colors LED Strip 2m Specified for Phanteks Enthoo Luxe Case Upgrade

Pros: Works great with the Phanteks Enthoo Luxe Perfect level of brightness and rich colors to match the LEDs on the outside of the case.

Cons: Horrible I mean HORRIBLE adhesive.

Overall Review: If you order this do not, I repeat DO NOT try using only the adhesive strip that comes on the LED strip. It will certainly NOT hold, and if it does not for long. You would think with this kind of specialty Phanteks product, along with its price, they would have put an at least functional form of adhesive on it.

Very nice, kind of expensive for a case

Phanteks Enthoo Luxe Series PH-ES614L_BK Black Aluminum / Steel ATX Full Tower Computer Case
Phanteks Enthoo Luxe Series PH-ES614L_BK Black Aluminum / Steel ATX Full Tower Computer Case

Pros: Looks Stunning Great lighting especially with the led strip available for this case(sold seperately) Dust filters everywhere Velcro cable management Nice SSD mounts Plenty of room Nice removable PSU cover Amazing liquid cooling support Probably missing some other pros

Cons: Top Fan cover rattle :/ Price

Overall Review: This case is amazing so it's no wonder that it is as popular as it is. It looks amazing and gives you unlimited possibilities as to how you want your build to go. Plenty of dust filters all around and this thing was build with great liquid cooling and cable management in mind. Not sure if I'm the only one with this problem but the top fan cover vibrates, even though im using only one Phanteks fan in the top(the fan is fine btw). Upon thorough investigation nothing is broken or unseated or misaligned, it turns out that this was more of a design flaw so to speak where the way the top fan cover clicks in to place it seems just a tad loose fitted. The problem however is easily remedied by putting my controller on top :)

A little dissapointed

ASUS Z97-A LGA 1150 Intel Z97 HDMI SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 ATX Intel Motherboard
ASUS Z97-A LGA 1150 Intel Z97 HDMI SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 ATX Intel Motherboard

Pros: Decent price for Z97, especially when on sale for $80. Great Bios Decent OC Power and reset on board

Cons: Stay away from the auto OC feature, unless you want constant crashes. Network adapter failed after only 6 months. Not very aesthetically pleasing in an open case. No error LCD. Not very many SATA connections.

Overall Review: It was a decent board while it lasted, unfortunately the network adapter failed after only 6 months, which I honestly have never had much of any issues with any ASUS products in the past and I have owned quite a few ASUS products including everything from MBs to monitors. Apparently however there were other people who had issues with the same network adapter/drivers found on this board and other ASUS boards causing it to fail completely and be unrecoverable.

Get what you pay for

APEVIA CF12SL-BBL 120mm UV blue LED fan w/3-pin and 4-pin connectors and black grill

Pros: Cheap, nice lighting.

Cons: Bearing went out in one of them after a month Loud from the beginning The screws they come with are pathetic, they get stripped way too easily, use your own screws.

Overall Review: You definitely get what you pay for so I can't knock too many eggs off

Can't beat it

CORSAIR Vengeance 8GB (2 x 4GB) 240-Pin PC RAM DDR3 1600 (PC3 12800) Desktop Memory Model CMZ8GX3M2A1600C9B
CORSAIR Vengeance 8GB (2 x 4GB) 240-Pin PC RAM DDR3 1600 (PC3 12800) Desktop Memory Model CMZ8GX3M2A1600C9B

Pros: Almost 2 years and still going strong. Fast, good for price. Corsair has never let me down.

Cons: none

Overall Review: Great ram for the price, and any average person won't need any more than 8gb for any game. I've been using these sticks heavily for almost 2 years and have not had any issues, still going as strong as they did from day one.
