4 out of 5 eggs Does what it's supposed to 04/22/2014

This review is from: VANTEC HDA-525P 3.5" to 5.25" Front Bay Converter Kit

Pros: It can hold a 3.5" device in a 5.25" bay
Didn't have any issues making it fit

Cons: Surprisingly it didn't make my computer any faster

Other Thoughts: Worked perfectly to fit a media card reader in my case that didn't have a 3.5" slot. Seems good enough quality for something like this.

ASUS M5A99X EVO R2.0 AM3+ AMD 990X + SB950 SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 ATX AMD Motherboard with UEFI BIOS

Pros: plenty of all the connections you need
TPU and EPU chips for improved speed and power usage
Bios flashback
Improved Bios interface
Solid Capacitors
all sorts of extra features

Cons: can't think of any

Other Thoughts: This is definitely one of the best boards for the price, costs a bit more than the 97 boards out there, but is packed with all sorts of features. It does what it's supposed to. I found the TPU and EPU chips to be a very interesting feature that I didn't even know about when I purchased it (must have over looked it). Claims to improve speed and power usage. My PC is super fast, but it is difficult to determine what if any effect the motherboard actually has on the overall speed. Could probably do some tests to determine something like that, but that's more work than I care to do and it works more than fast enough for me as it is.

Corsair Graphite Series 600T CC600TM Graphite Grey Mid-Tower Gaming Case
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: 1 week to 1 month

Pros: Quality case
Great cooling, all fans included
Very sleek looking with white lighting
Plenty of room for pretty much anything you would want to put into it
Fan controller
Filters on all intakes
Easy to open side panel with lock
Great cable management

Cons: Very large for a mid sized tower
USB 3.0 is simply a pass through cable, rather than one that attaches to MOBO

Other Thoughts: Bought this case for my new build because of all the features it had. This thing is huge, made my last case look like a micro case, I actually had to saw up my desk to make this baby fit, but worth it. Installation of everything was easy. Didn't use the onboard fan controller because my MOBO had enough connections for all my fans. The fans are pretty quiet. My only complaint was that one of the plugs to the MOBO from the front panel was missing, so the light on the power button does not come on, contacting Corsair to resolve that.
