4 out of 5 eggs Solid Motherboard, a few minor flaws 05/04/2014

This review is from: GIGABYTE GA-970A-D3P AM3+/AM3 AMD 970 SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 ATX AMD Motherboard

Pros: Good solid construction, VRM heatsink, 4 RAM slots, works...

Cons: NB gets a bit hot for my taste, second PCIe is at x4, CPU direction indicator arrow is hidden by the plastic mounting socket, only two fan headers (3 if you count PWR fan), front panel connectors are halfway up the board (which meant i had to redo my wiring... none of those are anything big, but just thought they should be mentioned

Other Thoughts: Good motherboard, very impressed with Gigabytes increase in quality

Rosewill REDBONE - Black SECC Steel ATX Mid Tower Computer Case
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: 1 week to 1 month

5 out of 5 eggs Rosewill Redbone 04/03/2014

This review is from: Rosewill REDBONE - Black SECC Steel ATX Mid Tower Computer Case

Pros: Sturdy steel construction, tool less installation for 5.25 and 3.5 drives, nice bright red fan, basic exhaust fan. Plenty of room inside to work with. Cable management isn't that bad, not damaged in shipping, holds computer parts, dust filter for PSU and fans.

Cons: Red. Even though I bought this color of case on purpose, most like myself can find it challenging to find case fans that match this case, as most cheap ones are blue. Not really an issue though.

Other Thoughts: Lies. The description of this case says there are NO 2.5 MOUNTING BAY THINGIES. THIS CASE DOES SUPPORT 1 2.5 DRIVE. At the bottom of the HDD cage, you will notice 4 little risers with holes. This holes happened to line up perfectly with my 2.5 drive. Lies. This case has lies. As well, even though it says it can only support 120mm fans, I and almost 100% positive, but I think it can fit at least 1 140mm fan on the door. I haven't tried, but it looks like it. Don't take my word for it though
