Corsair Obsidian Series 800D CC800DW Black Aluminum / Steel ATX Full Tower Computer Case
  • neweggOwned For: 1 day to 1 week

Pros: This is an excellent, large, roomy, nicely-built case with no sharp edges to be found and nice little plastic shrouds to cover the clutter. Excellence - everywhere! This will fit just about any build and the hot-swap bays are great (if you need them). I like this a LOT better than my Antec P193 that it replaced - you almost can't even compare the two.

Cons: Backside. Had to SQUISH the "rear" side-panel on to fit around my wires - and I have them run as neatly as possible... which leads me to the fatal flaw:

NO PLACES TO SECURE CABLES ON THE BACK SIDE! WOW! This is really foolish! This case is amazing for cable managment... yet, there isn't any. At all. Regardless, the interior still looks amazing if you take your time

Other Thoughts: Love this case. Being able to remove the front-panel without pulling any wires is great, the aluminum is nice looking and feels solid. The case is pretty quiet, considering all the fans it has. Very satisfied overall and would advise anyone looking for a full-tower to get this.

VANTEC UGT-CR945 9pin USB Header, PCIe USB 3.0 Upgrade Kit with Card Reader
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: 1 week to 1 month

Pros: Card reader works well

Cons: 3.5 - 5 1/4 adapter shipped broken
"what the ****" goes through your mind when you see the PCI connector - rightly so. This has caused my computer to BSOD and simply not boot multiple times. I finally realized that this was causing the issue when I thought back to my PCI Express 34mm card reader I had for a laptop that was preventing it from booting. I hope Newegg will offer a full refund, because this thing is garbage

Other Thoughts: Don't waste your money. Purchase a quality USB card reader for 1/4 the price and a separate USB 3.0 controller if necessary. Avoid this thing.

COUGAR CF-V12HP Vortex Hydro-Dynamic-Bearing (Fluid) 300,000 Hours 12CM Silent Cooling Fan with Pulse Width Modulation
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: less than 1 day

Pros: Looks nice, PWM, long cable, fancy box :)

Cons: Wire, although long and covered in some kind of mesh, kinks easily and is not as nice as what's on my NZXT fans

Some sort of REALLY ANNOYING high-pitch, but quiet noise comes from this fan at low speeds. Maybe it will go away with more use (break in period?)

Moves less air than the Antec fan that's included with the Antec 620 water cooler. My CPU quickly climbed to 75c while running prime 95, where the other fan held it well under 70. Pretty disappointed by this fan overall

Other Thoughts: Maybe I need to use two of these for my little watercooler - not sure, but I was expecting a lot more
