ECS A990FXM-A AM3+ AMD 990FX + SB950 SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 ATX AMD Motherboard

3 out of 5 eggs Cheap But Functional 04/16/2014

This review is from: ECS A990FXM-A AM3+ AMD 990FX + SB950 SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 ATX AMD Motherboard

Pros: -It motherboards.

Cons: -The I/O shield is the most flimsy piece of foil that could have been used. It barely functions.
-The Front Panel Connector ports don't come with the usual quality of life adapter to make plugging them in, easier.
-Overall cheap quality.

Other Thoughts: This is a bottom of the barrel board... it will function, but it's cheap, and you feel like you are going to break it when you plug things into the I/O. Unfortunately Motherboards are one of the very few places on a PC where you try to shave cost. DON'T! Remember... every other piece of hardware on your PC gets plugged into this piece.

Rosewill R536-Red - Black, Hot-Dipped Galvanized Steel ATX Mid Tower Computer Case with Red Front Panel and 500W Power Supply

Pros: -Solid quality for price range.
-Looks good

Cons: -Front Panel Audio connector is a bit short.
-USBs don't plug all the way in, but still work.
-Top mounted PSU

Other Thoughts: I used this case to build a rig for a client in Texas. I trust the Rosewill brand, but have never tried their cases before. I was pleasantly surprised. It's a solid size PSU for a mid-range build, and the case itself was nice. It doesn't have all the bells and whistles that a high end case has, but even the cable management "wasn't horrible" in this case. If you don't mind having a non-modular PSU, and you are looking for a reliable and inexpensive case... this is it. And honestly, if you were to buy one of those cheapo $30 cases, and then a separate PSU, you would still be spending the same amount, and not getting as good of a quality case.
