DIYPC Solar-M1-R Black/Red SECC ATX Mid Tower USB 3.0 Gaming Computer Case w/ 2 x 120mm Red Fans

  • neweggOwned For: 1 day to 1 week

Pros: Very light, ventilation keeps it as cool as it looks. Can fit a bigger GPU than my old Sentey full tower (400mm length).
Plenty of room for cable management.

Cons: The metal on this case is extremely thin and flimsy. The fans, even though they do a good job of keeping the case cool, fail very quickly so I have heard. Had no problems up to this point, but i have only owned it for a few days. The feet spin back and forth, just a minor annoyance.

Other Thoughts: I wish it had a top mounted fan just to ease my mind about fitting a high end graphics card into it. If you buy this, just remember you get what you pay for (this thing just feels a bit cheap).

Intel Core i3-4150 Haswell Dual-Core 3.5 GHz LGA 1150 54W BX80646I34150 Desktop Processor Intel HD Graphics 4400

Pros: Intel Core i3's are underrated as far as I am concerned. A bit much for just regular internet browsing, and can handle many applications at once and can even hold its own when it comes to gaming if paired with a good graphics card. Even without a graphics card, the HD graphics 4400 aren't terrible. I can play Fallout New Vegas at medium settings and still get 40-60 FPS.

Cons: Only dual core. It may be a powerful for an i3, but if you need true performance, buy a quad core like an i5 or i7.

Other Thoughts: This processor will be more than enough for the average user. Multitasking and gaming is surprisingly good for a dual core. Very low power requirements. I will upgrade to an i5 eventually, but for now I am very happy with this product.

My system:

Core i3-4150
Gigabyte GA-H81-HD2
Team Vulcan 8GB (2 x 4GB)
Western Digital Blue 1TB 7200rpm
DIYPC Solar-M1-R
Rosewill Capstone 450W

Buying a GTX 770 and upgrading the PSU soon.
