Fractal Design Arc XL (FD-CA-ARC-XL-BL-W) Black Steel ATX Full Tower Computer Case
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: 1 week to 1 month

Pros: Fantastic workmanship--feels solidly built right out of the box. Not the biggest full tower but plenty of room to work in. Best hard drive bays in the business--solid metal with rubber groomets that snap solidly into place. Excellent cooling performance as well. Liquid cooling on tap as well--my Corsair H105 fit well with plenty of clearance. Replaced a Corsair 900D--and this is the better case. You will not find better fit and finish in a case. Do not be put off the the relatively low price--a fantastic enclosure at ANY price. I'm running an ASUS Z97-WS with GTX780, Areca RAID controller and 7 hard drives. The install was easy and cooling performance bests the 900D.

Cons: As this would be a great case for the first time builder the documentation, though better than most, could be a bit more detailed. Moved the top-mounted fan to the front and found the included screws a bit short which made installing the fan more challenging than it should have been.

Other Thoughts: I've been building systems for over 13 years and this case is an absolute gem. Don't be put off by the price--easily bests cases costing twice as much. Fit and finish is top-notch and you will not be hunting down buzzes and other noises with this case. If you are tired of gimmicky "tool-free" designs this is the case for you. The very definition of common sense design.

Pros: Consistency is the hallmark of excellence...and this drive delivers. Great price/performance ratio. Thinking of tying 4 of these into a RAID array for video editing.

Cons: Samsung doesn't send it to you free via a fat man in a red suit,

Other Thoughts: A great SSD. Period. Total no-brainer purchase.

PNY VCGGTX7803XPB G-SYNC Support GeForce GTX 780 3GB 384-Bit GDDR5 PCI Express 3.0 x16 SLI Support Video Card

  • neweggOwned For: 1 month to 1 year

Pros: Great for Adobe CC 2014 apps--especially Pr and AME--easily bests Quadro cards--zero stability problems--don't game much but excels in the games I have tested--

Cons: It costs some money but delivers the goods.

Other Thoughts: Replaced a Quadro K4000--$250 less and blows it to pieces on Adobe CC2014 apps. Great for PrPro and rendering. You will not be disappointed.
