SteelSeries 63005SS QcK mini Mouse Pad
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: more than 1 year

5 out of 5 eggs Great gaming mousepad 08/15/2013

This review is from: SteelSeries 63005SS QcK mini Mouse Pad

Pros: I bought one of these about five years ago and it still works. I bought a new just one because the old one lost some of it's color.

Cons: Five years of daily use and the only thing wrong with it is it's lost some of it's color.

Other Thoughts: I didn't even need to replace it, but did so anyways.

Also it came with a sticker back then, as well as now.

Cooler Master Seidon 240M - All-In-One CPU Liquid Water Cooling System with 240mm Radiator and 2 Fans
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: 1 month to 1 year

Pros: It kept my CPU cool while it lasted.

Cons: The pump died after two months of 12 hour daily use.

The radiator fins are quite thin and delicate. A bump with anything solid is likely to bend them out of shape.

Other Thoughts: As is the norm, the included fans do not come pre-installed.

Installing a 240mm radiator can be somewhat of a hassle due to it's size and weight, but installing the waterblock afterward is quite easy.

The blue LED on the waterblock looks good in a case that has blue LED fans. It would look out of place in a case that uses any other color LEDs.

Cooler Master HAF X Blue Edition - High Air Flow Full Tower Computer Case with Windowed Side Panel and USB 3.0
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: 1 day to 1 week

Pros: Needless to say it has great airflow. The fans move enough air that with a closed-loop liquid cooler on the CPU the case's fans can keep everything nice and cool without making much noise. A Corsair H100 will fit just fine. This case has ample room for several very large GPUs.

The included EPS extension cable was needed. Without it feeding the cable behind the case would have been impossible. It's good they included it.

The perforated 5.25" bay covers are a nice touch. They even have their own mesh dust filters.

Cons: With all the external drive bays there isn't a single 5.25" to 3.5" adapter to mount a card reader. CM should have included an adapter. They should know that many people use 3.5" card readers.

The quick start guide was almost useless. Each page has literally 1 sentence in English and even then most of what it actually says you can glean from the mostly unhelpful pictures. I gave up on the guide very quickly to poke and prod (so to speak). This case doesn't include a manual. You'd have to download it from ASUS's support section.

It would have been nice if the fan at the top had blue LEDs too. It's an easy enough fix, but CM's own 200mm LED fans cost $20 each. Replacing the LED-less fan and adding a second fan is going to cost an extra $40.

I find the Hot-Swappable bays to be a joke. Shouldn't have to screw down the hard drives just to use the bays. The idea is quickly in and quickly out.

Other Thoughts: Have plenty of zip ties at hand. You're going to need them. The GPU duct is only useful if you have 2 or more cards that run very hot.

I'm so used to my old computer sounding like a jet engine when it's running that I'd almost forget that this rig is even on if I wasn't looking at it.

All in all this case is definitely worth the price. With a bit of extra money for fans, adapters, etc. this case is a good purchase and will serve well.
