4 out of 5 eggs This is a good product but have had some issues. 08/10/2016

This review is from: GIGABYTE G1 Gaming GA-Z170MX-Gaming 5 LGA 1151 Intel Z170 HDMI SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.1 USB 3.0 Micro ATX Intel Motherboard

Pros: The feature set of this motherboard was exactly what I needed. I was using an older Micro ATX case, but because of the newer chipset, everything else was bought brand new for this build.

Cons: The new GTX 960 video card seemed to flicker randomly... So I took it out and re-sat it in the slot and it seemed to clear up (this correction happened at about the same time I updated the BIOS, so I cannot be totally sure what fixed my issue). Also, I found the heat sink on the heat pipe to be pretty loose. It didn't fall off or anything, I was just very cautious when working around it... It seems to be working fine.

Other Thoughts: I wish that that heat sink was mounted a little sturdier. Other than that, I have no real issues with this board. The video card issue may have been something that I caused... And if it wasn't, Gigabyte fixed it in the BIOS update.

Fractal Design Define S Black Silent ATX Midtower Computer Case

5 out of 5 eggs This case is just what I needed. 03/09/2016

This review is from: Fractal Design Define S Black Silent ATX Midtower Computer Case

Pros: There are 2 USB 3.0 on top of case. I opted for the non-windowed version... While I can't look at the tidy interior, it does have space for an additional 120/140mm fan on that side of the case. There is also a lot of room behind the motherboard for cable management. I absolutely love the Velcro tiebacks. There are no 5.25" drive cages in the front to hamper any airflow and this allows for great cooling options... But (see other)...

Cons: No USB 2.0 ports on the top like my other Fractal Design case. The F4 I had had both 2.0 and 3.0 ports.

Other Thoughts: I wanted to save some money and I did a half new, half old build... I got a new motherboard, which fit perfectly and, along with my somewhat long video card, went in without a hitch. The problem that I had was with my older H55 cooler - the hoses didn't quite reach the CPU. The case is about an inch too deep. I fixed it by using an broken 120mm fan I had as a spacer... I just clipped out the fan, sanded the edges, and the 'unfanned' shroud worked perfectly.

Seagate SV35 Series ST3500411SV 500GB 7200 RPM 16MB Cache SATA 6.0Gb/s 3.5

Pros: I have ran this drive since 2011 without a hiccup. Great for additional storage. I have used this drive in multiple machines as either boot drives or as additional storage. Works great for either.

Cons: I haven't seen any cons with this product at all...

Other Thoughts: I have been impressed with the quality of this Seagate drive since I installed it on the first computer. Since 2011, this HD has been in 3-4 different computer configurations and is still going strong.
