  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: 1 week to 1 month

Antec Sonata Sonata Proto Black 0.8mm cold rolled steel ATX Mid Tower Computer Case
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: less than 1 day

Pros: Good for office case. Most others are full of buzzing twirling LED light shows with clear windows. Who likes that stuff anyway?

Cons: Like this whole line of Antec cases the 5.25" blanks are not held in well enough. How hard is it to fix? The front USB 3.0 harness to motherboard is practically nonexistent and do not provide any adapters. I'm going to have to manually make jumpers after finding the pinouts. What a pain! These are real problems for a premium case. I still continue to buy these, but the USB problem needs to be resolved asap -like send an adapter or do not mold those harnesses on.

Other Thoughts: Other reviewer claimed HD sleds smash cables. Try mounting the hard drive the other way, buddy.

Thermaltake Toughpower Grand TPG-850M 850W ATX 12V v2.3 & SSI EPS 12V v2.92 SLI Certified CrossFire Certified 80 PLUS GOLD Certified Active PFC Power Supply
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: less than 1 day

Pros: Plenty of connectors.

Cons: PAY close attention which modular plugs go where. I made a mistake and plugged in a peripheral SATA power cable into a PCI-X without paying attention. I've seen lots of these power supplies and usually molex only fit where they belong. I had a hard drive go up in FLAMES, literally!!!

Other Thoughts: In the end, this was my fault. However, the nature of electricity generally commands strict codes and guidelines. These connectors should really not fit in the PCIX jacks. This could have been catastrophic. The peripheral jacks were black making it hard to see, whereas the PCI are red. I simply overlooked the whole row of black connectors. Good reminder to not multitask when it comes to these kind of things! 1 egg to draw attention to this comment for safety! Otherwise probably a 5 egg power supply
