Cooler Master N400 NSE-400-KKN2 N-Series Mid Tower Computer Case with ATX Motherboard Support, Multiple 240mm Radiator Support, and Ventilated Front Panel
  • neweggOwned For: 1 day to 1 week

Pros: Reasonable size for a large mid-tower, stylish and unobtrusive. Mix of USB 2.0 and 3.0 ports on the front panel is handy.

Cons: Poor at accommodating 2.5 inch drives and large GPUs. The caddy for 2.5 inch drives is poorly located and does not hold drives of ordinary size securely. It does not provide for screw mounting. Large GPUs will interfere with 3.5 inch drive slots and with cabling. Use of breakaway tabs for expansion slots and external cooler fittings is inexcusable even at this price.

Other Thoughts: Works well if you don't plan to install a large GPU and you get a 2.5-inch to 3.5-inch adapter for 2.5 inch drives. But you can do better in the same price range. Corsair 200R has none of these limitations.

AMD Athlon II X2 250 Regor Dual-Core 3.0 GHz Socket AM3 65W ADX250OCK23GM Desktop Processor

5 out of 5 eggs Good choice for modest budget and power 05/21/2012

This review is from: AMD Athlon II X2 250 Regor Dual-Core 3.0 GHz Socket AM3 65W ADX250OCK23GM Desktop Processor

Pros: Used this to upgrade from a Sempron LE-1640. I didn't want to go to a 95W TDP CPU, because it's in a little mini-ITX case with stock cooler and power supply. Ideal for that purpose.

Cons: Doesn't get hot enough to make tea.

Other Thoughts: This one was on the motherboard maker's compatibility list, and the 260 wasn't; otherwise I would have gone for the 260.

Rosewill R101-P-BK 120mm Fan MicroATX Mid Tower Computer Case

4 out of 5 eggs Good bargain case. 05/05/2012

This review is from: Rosewill R101-P-BK 120mm Fan MicroATX Mid Tower Computer Case

Pros: Small, lightweight, no-nonsense, solid microATX case. Lots of room inside, more than in any other strictly microATX case I've worked with. Drive mounts are screw type, solid, and well fit. You won't have to force drives in and out, or worry about bending the drive mount frame. No silly styling or garish LED fans or sloppy "tool free" mounts.

Cons: Only one real problem, and that is length of front panel cables. If the front panel headers on your motherboard are in an unusual location, they may not reach. I used an ASUS P5G41T-M, and the front panel LED wires are fully extended.

Fit and finish of the left cover (of course, the one you have to remove most often) was so poor that the first two times I pulled it, I had to pry. It's still not quite square, or the case frame isn't, by 1 to 2 mm.

Other Thoughts: If 5 means "unqualified recommendation", I can't give it a 5. There's a lot to like about the case overall, but the short front-panel cables may make it not usable for some.
