Windows 8.1 64-bit
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: 1 week to 1 month

3 out of 5 eggs Meh 07/13/2014

This review is from: Windows 8.1 64-bit

Pros: Windows 8.1 is nice and pretty, feels and looks fresh. The interface is cool, if you have an open mind are are willing to learn new things.

Cons: I should have purchased windows 7. Even though windows claims 8.1 is stable and corrects past release issues. It is still very buggy. I have crashed more times in the last week than Ive crashed in two years with my windows 7 machine. Which I've investigated all crashes to trace back to the operating system. It took lots of modifications to get it to sleep correctly.. which occasionally it still does not go into sleep mode the right way. Certain apps from the windows app store will just outright crash the entire computer. Netflix has crashed on me 4 times.. only through the app though, not if I use it in a browser. Chrome also continues to crash either after I finish playing a game or when I bring it back from sleep.

Other Thoughts: I would have taken off more eggs, but I do see the future potential of this operating system. I have confidence in microsoft to eventually come out with a worthy update to finally replace their windows 7.

There are a lot of bugs in this software.

Corsair Graphite Series 760T White Steel / Plastic ATX Full Tower Windowed Gaming Case with two 140mm white LED fans
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: 1 week to 1 month

Pros: Hands down the best case I've ever owned. This case was so easy to work in. My previous case was the HAF-X which was also an awesome case. The 760T blows it out of the water on looks and noise reduction. The fully swinging doors are amazing and more sturdy than they look in pictures. There is also PLENTY of room in the back panel to route tons of cables. This case is also deceivingly large. I currently have two Sapphire R-290's in there with ample room. The windowed side panel is every bit as nice as it looks in the pictures and better.

Cons: No real cons other than a lack of fan filters at the top and bottom.

Other Thoughts: Some special notes.

There's room at the bottom for a case fan under the first drive bay once removed. This is good, but why they don't have holes for a140mm case fan is beyond me. There's so much room there. But there's only holes for 120mm case fan. That fan option also doesn't come with a built in fan filter. I purchased an aftermarket magnetic one and just stuck it to the bottom of the case.

There's no room or holes for a case can under the second drive bay once it is removed (front most drive bay) Which I don't really understand since the interior of this case is very similar to the 700d.

Concerning builds that will include a corsair h100i. Please note the spacing on the top most aluminum heat sink on your motherboard. If the heat sink goes right to the edge of the top of the pcb then you will not have enough room to set up a push pull type configuration on the rad. Just dual fans in either push or pull will work. I also don't believe the water lines are long enough for the rad to be installed on the front of the case.

Corsair Air Series AF120 LED 120mm Quiet Edition High Airflow Fan Single Pack - White (CO-9050015-WLED)
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: 1 week to 1 month

Pros: Nice soft LED lights. Nice air movement. Runs quietly.

Cons: Not PWM, but this is really meant to be a chassis/case fan. Not really a con.

Other Thoughts: If you want a nice quiet white LED fan for your case, then this is the one.
