Thermaltake V9 Black Edition ATX Computer Gaming Chassis with Dual Oversized 230mm Ultra-Silent Cooling Fans VJ400G1N2Z Mid Tower
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: more than 1 year

Pros: Nice big fans, plenty of room inside, quick drive swapping

Cons: Top mounted 230mm fan rubs/grinds. I ended up shaving off some platic (with a exacto blade) on the top mounted fan bracket and its all good. Too bad this was after I ordered a new 230mm fan.

Other Thoughts: I'm working a fluid cooling system since it has the tube cutouts build in. Will let you know how that goes.

ASUS Laptop K52 Series K52JE-XN1 Intel Pentium dual-core P6100 (2.00 GHz) 4 GB Memory 320 GB HDD ATI Mobility Radeon HD 5470 15.6
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: 1 day to 1 week

Pros: Inexpensive, good compatabilty, robust features for the price. Didn't want to spend a lot on a laptop, but still wanted dedicated video card. Got good reviews on Newegg and similar models did ok on Cnet. Mine seems built solid and look sharp considering its age/cost. Size and weight work for me, have bad eyes so I can't go much smaller w/o straining. Considered a 14' glad I got this one. Light weight, heat doesn't seem to be an issue.

Cons: Not so much con's as things to consider when you buy. Its an older model so its not going to have the greatest hardware. WEI is a 1 because of Aero support (not really a bad thing imo). Windows Pro caught the majortiy of the drivers needed chipset, video, card reader and pci connection. Bios/windows didn't pickup the drive as SSD so I'm having to go through the windows SSD optimization tips (auto defrag off, etc)

Other Thoughts: Didn't even turn on till after I installed 8 gig of memory and a 128gig SSD. Had system built and updated in about 2 hours. Windows only takes about 15 seconds to boot, which just floors me. Based on the cost versus performance I'd recommend this system for someone not seeking to spend alot on a system yet seeking good everyday use (surfing, light games, youtube). Even after my upgrades it was under $600. Will be installing Aion and SC2 for games. I don't expect blazing performance but I don't forsee any significant issues.
