This review is from: be quiet! SHADOW ROCK LP Low Profile CPU Cooler 130W TDP
Pros: Looks good
Cons: This is got to be the most horrible mounting design I have ever seen. I have the Shadow Rock and the Dark Rock from Bequiet, both nice designs and easy installations. This one, I dont know who designed the way the fan mounts and retaining screws, but he should be fired. Poor mounting design. You have to balance the screws that mount the actuial heatsink to the MB retainer and hope they dont fall out after you have it laying on the cpu, if so, start all over with TP. I could not believe that Bequiet thought this was a good design.
Other Thoughts: If the grill had one more fin cut 1/4" where the screws could go through the heatsink that would solve the screw issue, as far as the fan mount, the retaining clips need to be extended 2mm and it probably would be alot easier.
Its going back.
This review is from: RAIDMAX DELTA I DELTA-I-WB Black Steel / Plastic ATX Tower Case
Pros: Plenty of room for cable management.
Plenty of watercooling options.
The front looks really nice and has a better finish than most $100 cases.
Cons: The fan that is included is loud, but for the cost of the case thats to be expected. I installed 2 Corsair 140AF in the front and a 120mm AF in the rear.
Other Thoughts: I have no regrets, I built my father in law a workstation PC in it, he loves it and the case looks fantastic with some led lighting in it.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: Layout for all connectors is good.
Bios is easy to setup and the GUI is top notch.
Its EVGA...it looks really nice in a window case.
Cons: No wifi adapter included, but can be purchased seperately.
No M.2 for NVMe SSD.
I knew this going in. Others do offer it though for about the same cost, but I am a EVGA finatic.
Other Thoughts: I bought this simply because I have never had a bad EVGA product and I have bought many over the years.
This is a nice little board, easy to build on and completely trouble free.
Its in a Phanteks Enthoo Evolv ITX case, EVGA 650 P2 Modular power supply. Intel i5-6600k OC to 4.5 GHz, 16GB Crucial 2400 DDR4, 525GB Crucial MX300, WD Blue 1TB and a EVGA GTX 1060 6GB Video card. I love it and I have no regrets!
