Rosewill BLACKHAWK Gaming ATX Mid Tower Computer Case - Five (5) Preinstalled Fans, Side Window Panel, Top HDD Dock
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: 1 week to 1 month

Pros: Lots of fans, quiet. Newegg customer service.

Cons: The case is advertised with a docking station as a plus feature. It did not work. After finally calling Rosewill, turns out it is a know problem with poor quality control. Rosewill could not offer a replacement part since it "would probably not work". Should have Googled for problems prior to purchase, many out there. Disappointing response after completing a build. Case speaker for mounting on the motherboard also was non functional due to poor quality solder connection.

ASUS Z170 PRO GAMING LGA 1151 Intel Z170 HDMI SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.1 USB 3.0 ATX Intel Motherboard
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: 1 week to 1 month

Pros: Multiple USB ports and PCIe slots.

Cons: No quick connector included for case interface. This is the second ASUS motherboard I have purchase with significant issues with the USB ports. Originally thought it was a windows 7 or 10 issue but appears to be the bios. If I connect a Sandisk flash drive or WD My Book after the system boots, drives are not recognized. If connected during boot, the bios picks them up.

Other Thoughts: BIOS needs work. Even after updating to the latest firmware, drivers and multiple BIOS configurations, USB problems would not go away. Would not recommended this motherboard.

  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: 1 week to 1 month

Pros: Good performance after troubled setup

Cons: The unit came bare bones as expected. Seemed to be straight forward set-up using sata-usb adapter. That was the problem. Tried 2 different USB 3.0 adapters and neither could recognize the drive. The drive was recognized when hooked directly to the MB sata bus, unfortunately the cloning process with the supplied software failed. I had to use ACRONIS full version to perform the operation.

Other Thoughts: Two egg due to set-up and interface issues. Be prepared with your own hardware to install. If installing on a laptop, USB interface could be an issue. Would have been 1 egg if not for the Newegg price and 64GB ADATA drive included.
