APEVIA PSC-02 Apevia Standard Case Expansion Slot Cover 5 in 1 pack
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: more than 1 year

Pros: For cases with the cheap break-out PCI tabs, these are perfect.
Black, perforated, and black screws are included.

Cons: None really, I keep buying more.

Other Thoughts: Did five reviewers in a row really not understand how to install these properly? Maybe Apevia needs to include a small instructions sheet.

Rosewill RMS-MT2790 13
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: more than 1 year

Pros: Solid construction
Easy to install
Tilt and pivot, easy to adjust and tighten firmly.

Cons: Not free?

Other Thoughts: Only cost 25.48 for two with sale price and coupon code. Mounted a pair of BIC dv62si bookshelf speakers (large wood boxes) to the wall in my mancave. Perfect!
I drilled the pilot holes to mount them with a 9/32" bit instead of 1/4" as the directions suggested. That made it somewhat easier to tighten the included lag bolts, but it was still tight! As a previous reviewer said, make sure you use the right screwdriver/bit - a #3, or you will round out the phillips head on the big, tough-to-drive-in lag bolts. Get the right tool or you'll be sorry!


Pros: Clean appearance
Plenty of ventilation
USB ports on front
Lots of drive mounting options

Cons: Cables from front panel are too long - probably the same part that they use on their larger cases. "One size fits all".
Be careful about motherboard width. Asrock H97M Pro4 (8.5" width) board fit perfectly but a wider Z97 board (9.6") did not.

Other Thoughts: Why do you need a big, boxy PSU for an efficient little HTPC? I am using an HDPlex 160w power supply mounted to the vented (right) side of this case with a laptop "brick" AC adapter, which leaves a ton of space where the conventional PSU would have been for a big hard drive (or two) and better airflow. My 35w TDP i3-4150T-powered HTPC with a SSD and a 3.5" WD AV-GP hard drive never draws more than 100 watts, so that the right-sized power supply stays in its 90+ efficiency range most of the time and stays stone cold all of the time. Think "inside the box"!
