DIYPC M88-BK Black SECC MicroATX Mini Tower Computer Case with Dual Fans

4 out of 5 eggs Good case for the price 08/07/2014

This review is from: DIYPC M88-BK Black SECC MicroATX Mini Tower Computer Case with Dual Fans

Pros: Lots of room for the size of case that it is. The included fans are quiet yet move a lot of air. Possible to install more fans on the side with the vents even though they aren't marked for it.

Cons: VERY thin metal. VERY easy to strip the screws. Do not try to tighten these down very much. I found this out when trying to tighten a loose motherboard standoff. Lucky it was one in the center. Minus 1 egg for the screw threads.

Other Thoughts: This is a cheap case. What can I say? For what you pay for it its a good one if your only going to build once. If your going to be in and out of it all the time forget it. The screw mounts won't take it. I built this as a spare/lite duty system and am very happy with it.

Pros: Good solid feeling machine, and one screw access to upgrades of ram, hard drive, and one more for optical drive bay.

Cons: No expansion card slot (pci-e), and windows 8 preinstalled

Other Thoughts: First thing I did was order a copy of windows 7 pro to go with this and trash the windows 8 install. Had to use winzip's driver searcher utility since there are no HP supported drivers for windows 7 on this machine, but well worth it. Note that since this was meant for the Canadian market it has US keys as well as some french markings, but you don't really notice them nless you want too. Keyboard layout is a little odd as is key spacing, but you get used to it pretty quick.

Pros: Lots of drive options if you plan ahead, great cooling, small size packs a full sized system.

Cons: Power adapter wrong angle, slot load optical drive, front filter keeps falling off.

Other Thoughts: As lots of others have mentioned the angle of the power cord is backwards. They should have used a left hand angle connector instead of a right angle one. Poor design by Silverstone in this area. Minus 2 egg for having to splice in a proper connector.
