LG G3 Standard Battery [OEM] BL-53YH (A)

1 out of 5 eggs My LG G3 Won't Boot with this Battery 12/15/2015

This review is from: LG G3 Standard Battery [OEM] BL-53YH (A)

Pros: Shipping was fast.

Cons: Battery had a 2014 date on it. I charged it fully and then tried it in my LG G3. My G3 would not boot and just got stuck in a loop. Tried several times. My old OEM battery works fine.

LIAN LI PC-V750WX Black Aluminum ATX Full Tower Computer Case

5 out of 5 eggs Lian Li PC-V750WX Case 09/17/2013

This review is from: LIAN LI PC-V750WX Black Aluminum ATX Full Tower Computer Case

Pros: Others have already listed the positives of this case in great detail. In short, I've been building computers for over twenty years for home and work and this is the best case I have ever used. I plan to keep mine for a long time. I needed a height-restricted case to fit in my music-production desk and this case fit the bill. It has lots of room inside and looks great.

The front and top of this case are made from one, long piece of aluminum, with a smooth bend at the top edge, which is unique. The brushed, black aluminum looks great.

The airflow in this case superb (2 120mm front intake fans, 1 140mm bottom intake fan, 2 140mm top exhaust fans, and 1 120mm top, rear exhaust fan). I'm getting much lower temps on my CPU than in my previous case. The bottom 140mm intake fan is NOT included so you will need to buy it.

This case can hold lots of drives. If you plan to use lots of SSD's like I did (five of them), then you may want to order a couple Lian Li HD-321 internal mounting kits. The kit lets you mount two SSD's in one 3.5" bay while still using the stock rubber grommets that come with the case. This way, you can hold four SSD's in the cage with room for four platter drives, and still use the bottom 140mm fan, which I did not want to give up.

Cons: This case is definitely designed for air cooling, which is fine by me because that's what I prefer. The area above the motherboard in this case needs to be higher in my opinion. The top cable cutouts get slightly covered by the motherboard, and this plus the two top mounted fans get in the way of trying to bring some larger cable connectors through the top cutouts (like a 6-pin PCIe connector for my Asus Rampage IV Extreme motherboard). A radiator with fans will definitely not fit inside the case.

Also, there should have been more cable cutouts included inside the case. There is a lot of room behind the motherboard in this case (more than other cases) but only two smallish cutouts on the bottom in which to run the cables through (especially if you use a large power supply like the Corsair AX1200i which I have).

Other Thoughts: The person who rated this case one star because a side clip broke should really pay attention to the accessories that come in the box. There is a spare plastic side clip included with all the screws, and it's very easy to replace.

The fans that come with the case are good, but not great. I'm very picky about fan noise, so I replaced the three 120mm 1300rpm fans with NoiseBlocker fans and used three 140mm 900rpm Thermalright fans. The aftermarket fans ended up being much quieter.

The SATA drive bays come with hot-swappable back planes. Since drives inside the case aren't typically hot swapped, I recommend removing the back plates and not using them for reliability reasons.

The power button has a very bright, blue LED in it, which is too bright for my taste.

Intel Core i7-4960X Ivy Bridge-E 6-Core 3.6GHz (Turbo 4GHz) LGA 2011 130W BX80633i74960X Desktop Processor
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: 1 day to 1 week

Pros: Fast speeds, lots of cores and low temperatures!

I'm using an Asus Rampage IV Extreme motherboard, 32gb Corsair Dominator memory (1866 Mhz), and a Thermalright Archon SB-E X2 air cooler. My idle temps are in the low 30's Celsius, and with Prime95 running all cores maxed out at 4 Ghz the temps hover around 70.

Cons: Newegg shipped my $1,000 processor in a padded envelope.

Intel packages this CPU in a blue box similar to their other CPU's (instead of the traditional black box for the Extreme edition). Even the sticker is a plain blue i7 sticker.

Other Thoughts: I upgraded from an i7-980x. The increase in performance and lower temps were worth it for me. Plus, my old socket 1366 motherboard lacked native USB 3.0 and didn't have any SATA 6G ports.
