Rosewill BlackHawk-Ultra Full Tower Gaming Computer Case, support up to HPTX MB, Support Dual PSU, come with 8 cooling Fans
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: less than 1 day

Pros: This case is huge, haven't put any parts in it yet because of what happened during shipment

Cons: The case came with a broken top fan cover and cannot be fixed. Will need a new top assembly, Not wanting to send it back. Also the HHD drive bays were just thrown in the case with 2 pushed in sideways, which made me have to force them out to find all the broken bits off the top half. some of the HHD bays were just laying in the bottom half of the case. All kinds of scratches an dings everywhere. Since this isnt going to be a show case I can deal with the scratches and I hope putting Monsta rads in it, that those will cover up the scratches. Also the door was kind of bent it was only half way put on and to get it off i had to pull with all my force to get it off.. now putting the side back on it wont go into place like it should.. I know i can fix that but was disappointing that it was just thrown together before they boxed it. I know in the end when I get the new parts it will be way better and I will reevaluate this review and give it 2 more eggs.

Other Thoughts: I already contacted customer support as soon as I saw this. Took pictures of what everything looked like and they got back to me very quickly... It sounds like the top can be replaced and I can just do the "warranty" work myself lol. Im fine with that and the scratches do bug me, but not enough to have to wait 2-4 weeks to get it shiped back and replaced with a new case that could have the same thing happen. I am very pleased with how quick rosewill cust support got back to me. I want to give this a 5 star rating because the case looks soo good and the room im going to have will be very good! So as soon as I get that top cover I will do 5 eggs just for the customer support.

ASUS Radeon R9 290X DirectX 11.2 R9290X-G-4GD5 4GB 512-Bit GDDR5 PCI Express 3.0 HDCP Ready CrossFireX Support Video Card - Bundled with BF4 coupon and door hanger
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: 1 week to 1 month

Pros: This card will play everything and anything on the highest settings at 1080p. Even though the drivers are still in there infancy, BF4 plays at 80fps+

Cons: The card I have has a super bad coil whine. It just screams when I start up a game. I'v read on forums that most of these cards have a little bit of a coil whine, but myn you can hear across the house. Iv read that it could go away so hopefully i dont have to hear this all the time. The top dvi port has been acting up and will flicker. Switched to the bottom one and everything is fine.. Not sure if this is do to the coil whine too.. Runs super hot.......

Other Thoughts: Since this card is a reference card, the cooler is cheap and isnt made for overclocking. If you dont mind voiding your warranty you can get an aftermarket cooler that will bring the temps down 30c. Also to keep the card from downclocking set the switch to uber mode. Or click it to the right towards the fan. Then in CCC set your fan profile to 60% and your temps wont go over 80c as long as your box has proper venting. Im giving the card itself 4 eggs. But the coil whine and the heat issues do need to be addressed.. Other then all that I am pleased with the performance.

Corsair Air Series AF120 Performance Edition CO-9050004-WW 120mm Twin Pack High Airflow Case Fan
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: 1 week to 1 month

Pros: The fan(s) are great, moves LOTS of air! The looks of the fans are even better! Really quiet to, but what else would you expect its corsair!

Cons: Didnt really read into the diffrence between the AF and SP fans.. Figured id do the one with more CMF.. Well the SP's work better for my H100i and now i gota buy 4 more AGAIN.. The AF's still work for the h100i and still cool great but if i really start to push things (ocing at high voltages) i want as much airflow and pressure as possible to cool it down.

Other Thoughts: Might be a good marketing trick to add on the SP's page and on the website that they are great for water cooling kits instead of (High Static Pressure Case Fan), and the AF's are great for exhaust and intake fans for a case..
Oh well my fault for not reading everything before saying here take my money.. lol
