MSI Nightblade-013BUS Intel Core i7 / i5 / i3 / Pentium (LGA1150) Intel Socket LGA1150 Intel Z87 1 x HDMI Barebone
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: 1 month to 1 year

Pros: I had no trouble with quality control on this case. As this is my first computer I have built for myself personally I did not find it hard to install anything. The only thing I made sure to do was follow the order of installation in the manual. That way I didn't have to fidget with re-wiring after something blocked something else. Build quality seems solid from my experience. Ran FurMark for 30 min and my Maxwell GPU is doing great (less than 70C). Of course a AMD or older chipset NVIDIA cards will likely be far hotter. All the ports on the front of the case are USB 3.0, which is great! In such a small case I was able to put in a full sized HDD which was also nice. I brought this case to a LAN party and it didn't seem to get scratched anywhere. I did make sure to try not ding it anywhere though.

Cons: I know some people have been getting cases with bent and flexed motherboards and faulty RAM slots. Hopefully you get lucky and get a non-faulty mobo with nothing missing.

This case is much heavier than it looks. Still not bad though.

Other Thoughts: I will give this five eggs since my Nightblade came fine and everything works without any damage. I understand if others have issues with the case. Hopefully MSI has worked the issues out.

I do not know if having a Granite surface has anything to do with the temperatures I am getting, but the Nightblade is sitting on a wide open Granite Bar.

4 out of 5 eggs Better Than MW3 11/13/2012

This review is from: Call of Duty: Black Ops 2 PlayStation 3

Pros: Finally the core components of the game are improved. Gone away is the "killstreak" system, and in comes the "scorestreak" system. Finally teamplay is rewardable! (Less killstreak players and more objective players). The Strike Force missions are very cool, a little bit of RTS is blended in. The campaign is finally great! The linear follow this guy the whole mission and run down this obvious path the whole mission is gone. Now there are a lot of ways to proceed through a mission, and actions have consequences (no spoilers here). The semi-futuristic theme and setting of the game is a nice touch away from the tired Modern Warfare theme. This probably let the Treyarch developers be a little more creative. (And not being IW is a good thing now I believe, unfortunately.) The unlock token system is good. It is more balanced than Black Ops I's CoD Points, though it wasn't really a problem getting them. The prestige levels are lowered to 55, like (I think) it should be. Multiplayer now has gamemodes with multiple teams fighting at once. Overall a better package.

Cons: Though some core mechanics were changed for the better, the gunplay is still mostly the same. Terrain advantage has only low to moderate value, and colors are bland.

Other Thoughts: Very worth it as I used the newegg coupon that gave me $20 off $60.

SAPPHIRE Radeon HD 7750 1GB 128-bit GDDR5 PCI Express 3.0 x16 HDCP Ready Video Card ( 11202-00-20G)
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: 1 month to 1 year

Pros: Very power efficient (No power connection needed to mobo, can run on PCIe 2 power), fairly fast! Can play all modern games (albeit on low settings at full resolution). Never gets over 60C for me (I even only have 2 stock case fans, no front case fan). Too bad it was defective... but I have received my RMA and now it works perfect!

Cons: Had a defective model. It would freeze the whole system randomly when in loading screens and switching between windows. Caused artifacts and black squares everywhere! Last but not least, did not come with promised coupon... RMA'd for replacement. REVISION: I have received my RMA replacement and it works splendid!

Other Thoughts: Note: I later googled for some info, and found that specifically some people with SAPPHIRE 7750s had the same problems. I still have faith in Sapphire, just probably a bad batch.
