Cooler Master HAF 912 - Mid Tower Computer Case with High Airflow, Supporting up to Six 120mm Fans and USB 3.0
  • neweggOwned For: 1 day to 1 week

Pros: Plenty of room, and much better air flow than any case I've had in the past. It was easy to transfer my MB, drives, and power supply from the old case to this one. It came with all of the screws I needed, along with the quick install sliding thingies for the hard drives. Packaged pretty well for shipping, too.

Cons: Needs something more than carpet under it for good air flow to the power supply. I ended up putting a piece of wood under the case to ensure that air could move under there.

Other Thoughts: It was a little tight on the side of the case for the SATA cables. I had to make sure I used right angle connectors so there was no pressure on them from the side panel. The case light is not too bright, and the fans are quiet. I also appreciate how the power and reset buttons are near the top front of the case, out of reach of my cat!

4 out of 5 eggs 4 years old and still working 03/04/2014

This review is from: GIGABYTE GA-H55M-USB3 LGA 1156 Intel H55 HDMI USB 3.0 Micro ATX Intel Motherboard

Pros: I've had this MB since 2010, and it has been on 24/7 every day since I got it. It has just worked.

Cons: The USB-3 has been a little iffy. If the hub on that port burps, then I have to restart Linux to get it to recognize it again. The burps are usually me doing something dumb with the devices plugged in.

Other Thoughts: It was an economical board at the time, and has survived being on constantly for 4 years. I've overclocked it to run a 2.97Ghz I3 CPU at 4Ghz, day in and day out. No problems. The only reason I'm commenting now is that my power supply fan died, and I was looking at the original order from Newegg to see what I bought back then.

Pros: This MB has been running 24/7 for the past 6 months without a glitch (that I didn't cause). I like how it operates, the large number of USB ports, the graphics connectors (with an i3 - 530 processor as a source) and great sound. This machine is used for recording TV shows, sometimes 3 at a time. Playback works great, as does using it for playing all of my music.

Cons: I had some problems with the USB-3 ports and my external backup drive. They work ok with my uC controllers and the keyboard/mouse receivers so it isn't a big deal.

Other Thoughts: I don't understand why so many people are complaining about reboots. I'm running Fedora 14 linux and reboot maybe once a month. The only glitch I has was with a bad usb device that prevented the MB from getting past the bios screen. On other MB's I've seen reboot problems with undersized/bad power supplies. I've got a 650W supply for my machine given that there are 3 HD's, the DVD and 2 TV cards in it. It just works well, and I'm thinking of getting another to create a Windows machine.
