Corsair Obsidian Series 750D Airflow CC-9011078-WW Black Brushed Aluminum and Steel ATX Full Tower Computer Case ATX Power Supply
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: 1 day to 1 week

Pros: Extra spacious easy to work in
Fit My full Size graphics Card with custom air cooler, even with hard drive cages had around 1.5-2 in to spare, with them not stacked had WAY more
Clean look, well packaged
good spots for all cable management and flexible arrangement options
Love the side window, but has non window part all around so led lights can't be seen (perfect)

Cons: big hole in bottom for cables on a drive cage I won't be using
5.25 bays not flush with the rest of the case
no filter on the back or bottom intake fan spots
non retail fans (good fans just less attractive than retail parts)
no rubber grommets in holes at top of the case
no rubber grommets (permanent punch outs) for liquid cooling
lastly, no way to cover the SSD bracket area, had to make the cables for fans go around the area in a way that wouldn't show up in the holes

Other Thoughts: Oddly there is a perfect spot at the bottom front just under the intake fans that was perfect to put my LED light control unit, so kudos for that, and the model I ordered is updated without permanent standoffs. Great viewing window, excellent cable management and easy to work in, just wish it had a button or retention screws for the side panels.

Crucial RealSSD C300 2.5
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: 1 month to 1 year

Pros: faster than light (screw Einstein) with only windows 7 no extras was 30-33 seconds boot, with everything else I use installed (specifically anti-virus) 35-38 seconds.

Cons: Had BSOD for 7 of my 9 months, finally the drive just crashed (not showing in post). When it finally showed back up (leave attached for an hour or so while pc is support advice) my "former" system partition showed as "not initialized".

Other Thoughts: can't rate 0?

EVGA GeForce GTX 580 (Fermi) DirectX 11 015-P3-1580-AR 1536MB 384-Bit GDDR5 PCI Express 2.0 x16 HDCP Ready SLI Support Video Card
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: 1 week to 1 month

Pros: Fast
100% customizable overclock (free evga precision software)
offers sli, cuts through every game I have thrown at it (1920x1200 @ highest settings ..resolution being the monitors max) no problems on any output.

runs at 80-85+ (22-26ish ambient) C when you let the fan pick the speed (and running folding@home gpu @99%) and anything over about 58% fan speed is loud, (ungodly loud at 100%..which is only available with a free evga firmware update).

Other Thoughts: will be replacing the stock cooler with an arctic cool accelero xtreme plus cooler, and hope that that brings the temps back down a notch.....nothing else seems to, and I can't have my gpu being the ONLY noisy thing in my case
