APEVIA X-TROOPER Series X-TRP-GN Black/Green Steel ATX Mid Tower Computer Case
  • Verified Owner

4 out of 5 eggs Well ventilated, but flimsy 12/03/2013

This review is from: APEVIA X-TROOPER Series X-TRP-GN Black/Green Steel ATX Mid Tower Computer Case

Pros: This thing is designed for air cooling and keeps the air moving from bottom/side to top/back. Great airflow in this thing.

It shows promise for water cooling as it has tube ports in the upper back and 240mm fan/radiator mounts on the top.

Cons: Cheap fans. I recommend purchasing 120mm 4-pin fans for this case. Also, the huge, green fan on the side can be an obstruction if you decide to go closed-loop water cooling for your CPU. The CORSAIR H60 may work, because it doesn't stick out as far. But, the ThermalTake WaterPro 2.0 won't fit with both fans (push-pull) mounted on its radiator. The fan actually bumps into the outer fan.

Other Thoughts: The top seems appropriate for the 240mm radiator configuration, so another water cooling solution seems like it might work. But, I don't know, yet - I plan on custom-water cooling NB, SB, RAM & 2 GPUs.

Asus VE228H 21.5

3 out of 5 eggs HDMI monitor with no HDMI cable 11/04/2013

This review is from: Asus VE228H 21.5" Full HD HDMI LED BackLight LCD Monitor w/Speakers ASCR 10,000,000:1

Pros: Clean, nicely packaged, crisp images, light weight, sturdy (doesn't tip over easily).

Cons: Okay, so how many HDMI LCDs does one need to buy to expect an HDMI cable to ship with them? I mean, it comes with a DVI, a VGA, an audio cable and a power cable. So, that's all the other ports and capabilities they advertise. But, no HDMI cable??? An Annoying con, but a con nonetheless.

Also, the upward tilt on this LCD is oddly limited compared to the downward tilt. The stand is awesome and keeps the monitor in place and unlike some other manufacturer's models, it doesn't tip over easily, even when tilted to it's max.

Speakers aren't very good. But, I don't use monitor speakers as a general rule. They're just a handy backup or adds to my current sound/speakers.
