GIGABYTE GZ-FA2CA-AJB Black Aluminum ATX Full Tower Computer Case
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: more than 1 year

5 out of 5 eggs Overall Quality 03/07/2009

This review is from: GIGABYTE GZ-FA2CA-AJB Black Aluminum ATX Full Tower Computer Case

Pros: Owned this case for about 6 months now. Overall great quality, and it has stood the test of time. This case has seen dual videocards, water cooled CPU,2xGPU,NB&SB has been in here, along with many harddrives.

Very large and easy to work in. The Hard drives facing the way they do makes routing cables easier, and giving more room around the board for multiple GPU's.

Cons: They could have gave me 1/2" more room in the case near the bottom of the mobo. Running 3 280's on ex58 extreme will fit, but give me less than 1 mm of room between the gpu and the bottom, airflow suffers.

Other Thoughts: I was able to make some fan mods that really helped air flow, and I used available 5.25" slots to add more HDs. check it out... ever used googlepages?? to get to a google page you have to use the users name - mine is asb2106, then dot, then googlepages, then dot, then com. Figure it out and you can see my case :) Not an amazing build, but the i7 is coming soon, pics will be there! Ill be putting the i7 in this case with the current water setup(plus modifications). Ill be going for 4.3Ghz on a 920. And ofcoarse, buying all the parts from NEWEGG!!

Pros: Single slot design (Also Con), FAST card, great price. CUDA device, runs roughly 5k a day for me at GPUGRID. Thats huge credit/dollar :) Make sure you do research for yourself, and not base your desicion on the reviews of others - all computer purchases should be done carefully. Newegg makes the whole process so easy they forget to research there parts sometimes! By doing this you will know HOW MUCH POWER YOUR VIDEO CARD NEEDS! come on! That should not be a CON because you cant do your own research. For the price and performance this deserves a 5/5 all day. This is a FAST FAST FAST card for the price.

Cons: The single slot design does limit the cooling efficiency of the card, but with alittle work its ok. I just installed R*I*V*Atuner(free) to change when the fan kicks in on the card. It never heats over 60C, which is perfectly fine for GPUs under 24/7 use.

Other Thoughts: You cannot always trust what you read, immortal-D, adjust fan speeds, your fine. And come-on! anyone knows when your buying a decent graphics card these days they are going to need power. and this is MINIMAL compared to my others. I have this on a 450 Thermal take, running strong with multiple drives and fans. EASY. My GTX280's in other rigs need 4 times as much power, and a 750 holds them up fine. (all PC power cooling PSU's btw) - check me out at GPUGRID, cant miss me, same handle (nickname) :)

Seagate Momentus 5400.3 ST9160821A 160GB 5400 RPM 8MB Cache IDE Ultra ATA100 / ATA-6 2.5

Pros: This hard drive came pre-installed on 8 Gateway computers that I purchased.

Cons: Out of the 8 HD's I started with, 4 of them are dead now. I pruchased the laptops 8 months ago and over the last 2 months I have had my guys sending them in because of HD failure. I am replacing them with WD HD's and there are never complaints.

Other Thoughts: I have always been a western digital person, but I never had anything against other companies, until now. A 50% failure rate of OEM HD's sent to a manufacturer does not sit well in my stomach. They need to step up quality control, as this has cost our company lots of important DATA! And thats NOT GOOD. Sorry Seagate, but I will never buy another harddrive of yours - MAN, and I hate when people say stuff like that :( This is really a serious issue though, I have to go with parts that can handle the daily usage of a laptop.
