NZXT Phantom 530 Red ATX Full Tower Computer Case Includes 1 x 200mm Front, 1 x 140mm Rear 2 x USB 3.0  Fan Controller
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: 1 month to 1 year

Pros: Easy to install most components (see cons).

Cons: The top is plastic and very difficult to remove (required to install a cooler). The switch top in the top did not operate smoothly; I had to shave the plastic switch top with a cutting tool. Also the actual switch underneath popped out and a piece broke off. I am still waiting for a replacement top and switch [it has been 7 weeks since NZXT said they would send me the replacement parts]. If you install a Corsair H110 cooler you can only use the lower 5-1/4 inch bay since the cooling tubes will infringe on the upper two drive bays space. The case needs to be about one inch longer.

Other Thoughts: The specs read great but too many problems with the plastic construction for the top as well as the 5-1/4 drive bay issue.. Get the 630 - a few bucks more and much better case or the AZZA Genesis - my favorite case except it is about 3/4 inch too tall to fit under my work table - the Genesis sometimes is on sale for about the price of the 530 [I paid less with a rebate].

ASUS MAXIMUS VI HERO LGA 1150 Intel Z87 HDMI SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 ATX Intel Motherboard
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: 1 week to 1 month

Pros: Great board for the price/features. Eight 6 gb sata ports.
USB3 internal connector for front panel. Overclocking easy. Extreme tweaker, Ramdisk. 32 gb ram supported.

Cons: Does not include Daemon Tools Pro standard as advertised in the spec, in the manual, and on Asus website. Only a trial is included. I contacted Asus and was told they do not supply the license and have not received a response yet as to why the Hero is advertised as bundled with Daemon Tools Pro standard if only a trial is bundled.
