Pros: Fast - I'm running mine at 733 with NO PROBLEMS. Low cost.
Cons: Would be nice if they came with a heat spreader.
Pros: Easy to overclock in BIOS. 8.1 sound. Nice on-board graphics plus PCI-Express? Sweet. What else can I say? It just works.
Cons: No support for firewire.
Overall Review: Until I can get a microATX with SLI this is THE board for an X Q-pack.
Pros: This case is really beautiful. Great view of all internals. I have talked to Aspire several times and they are super nice to deal with. I get so many comments on this case.
Cons: The stock PS couldn't keep up with a P4 and a 6600GT. Voltages kept falling to ~11.35.
Overall Review: The new Rosewell 550w PS fit with no problems and looks like it could power 2 machines. I DO CARRY THIS CASE BY THE HANDLE - NO PROBLEMS. The big Zalman (7700) fits but the install is quite tricky. Plenty of I/O for a little case.
Pros: What can I say? It powers my system wonderfully (all voltages are excellent) and looks great doing it.
Overall Review: This PS fit right into my Aspire X Q-pack case for anyone wanting to step up from the sickly little unit that comes stock.
Pros: Excellent cathode light. Moves serious air.
Cons: DOES NOT have blue LED's like the desciption says. Fan blows wrong direction (into case).
Overall Review: Cathode can be removed to turn fan around. Very fast shipping as usual. Thanks Newegg!
Comments: Everything fits nicely including a Zalman 7700 (after an interesting install). Power supply is WEAK - will not run my 6600gt any length of time. The handle does flex but not to the extent that I think it might break. A 500+w power supply and this box would be a 5.
