COUGAR Evolution Black SECC ATX Full Tower Computer Case with Dual 12cm COUGAR TURBINE HYPER-SPIN Bearing Silent Fans, USB 3.0 x 2, USB 2.0 x 2
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: more than 1 year

Pros: +Built-in fan controller that has a nice LED presentation
+So many vents and simple layout never allows the computer to heat up..wish it would during winter though :P
+High quality case fans
+Cool color scheme and design
+Painted interior
+Supports 7 fans (2 included)..since the case is so ventilated only the included 2 are necessary.
+Hidden cable management

Cons: -Lots of vents=noise and dust
-Wish fan controller would lower case fans further
-Side door (with window) warps when opened..
-Could have more fit and finish
-Paint isn't the highest quality
-So many cables for top panel the first slot cannot be used for a DVD drive
-Not a full tower as listed
-Not enough room for cable management behind MB tray..maybe I'm just unorganized but I practically had to sit on the case to get it to close
-Buttons on top panel don't click when pressed from most angles

Other Thoughts: Overall I've had a positive experience with this case, it looks futuristic and has cool features..just wish there was more quality put it.

XFX PRO850W XXX Edition Semi-Modular 80 Plus Silver Certified 850 Watt Active PFC Power Supply
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: more than 1 year

Pros: +No noise whatsoever (no fan noise either). I spent a lot of time finding a PSU that was completely silent.
+Never had any problem. (Has resided in multiple houses, one being very old with subpar currents..lights flickered but computer didn't show any issue)
+Fully modular
+Single rail (no worries)
+Sleeved cables
+Great packaging
+Styling of PSU is perfect
+Future proof
+Fan is so silent the only indication that it's running is a small amount of dust in my filter after 1 year!
+Very solid/high quality feel
+Smells great lol
+Plethora of extra cables

Cons: -Cables are somewhat stiff
-Not a big deal but each cable has stickers on it that I cut off to have a clean look..leaves small amount of residue on the sleeve which collects dust

Other Thoughts: -Would have been nice (although I've never seen it on a market PSU) to have every individual cable sleeved

Intel Core i5-2500 Sandy Bridge Quad-Core 3.3GHz (3.7GHz Turbo Boost) LGA 1155 95W BX80623I52500 Desktop Processor Intel HD Graphics 2000
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: 1 month to 1 year

Pros: +Fast and snappy
+Perfect price for performance: most you'll need for gaming
+Gaming performance: Have yet to have a game drop below 120 fps at max settings (although running at a somewhat low resolution 1360x768)

Cons: -The heatsink. I never bothered to use it because I read enough about it. Supposedly it's loud and ineffective which is why I went for an aftermarket solution: the GeminII S524.

Other Thoughts: When I began picking the parts for my first build, I concluded that AMD would be the cheapest and most effective route to go. Price was my major concern so I had set out to get the Bulldozer 4100. As I neared the end of my Newegg fantasy build, suspicion set in if Bulldozer would be a good gaming choice. After hours of scanning forums, I concluded to ease my fears and shell out more money for a CPU that would never bottleneck my GPU. So I chose the Intel 2500. I have this CPU paired with a Zotac 560 Ti 448 and the CPU is never stressed during games. Since every game I've played has only a minor effect on this CPU, it's safe to say that the K version is overkill for most gaming situations. Get this one, it rocks.
