YAMAHA RX-A720 7.2-Channel Receiver
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: 1 week to 1 month

5 out of 5 eggs Everything as advertised 12/14/2012

This review is from: YAMAHA RX-A720 7.2-Channel Receiver

Pros: Huge upgrade from the receiver that came with a Onkyo HTIB a few years ago. I upgraded my front speakers to Polk Monitor 60s about a year ago, but just was not as impressed with them as I was hoping. After hooking up this Yamaha, I can now saw I am happy with the Polk's, the difference was night and day!

Setup is super easy, YAPO is great, the on screen display is great

Cons: didn't come with banana plugs - (had to think of something)

ZALMAN ZM-CS5B Clip Support Kit for CNPS9700/9500/8700/7700/7500/7000C Series/ZM-WB4/WB5 Clip Support for Socket 1155/1156/775

  • neweggOwned For: 1 day to 1 week

Pros: nothing fancy works

Mobo: MSI p55-GD65

Cons: I want to get 2 more sticks of memory, but I'm not sure I will be able to get a G-skill ripjaw into the first slot... I didnt take an egg for this, that is more due to the actual heatsink

I did take one egg off due to lack of instructions, and not providing an extra plastic 'washer ... I thought it came 1 short, but I did find it eventually (in the bag lol)

Other Thoughts: it's a mounting bracket, what else is there to say?

Cooler Master HAF X - High Air Flow Full Tower Computer Case with Windowed Side Panel and USB 3.0 Ports
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: 1 day to 1 week

Pros: Very impressive case. I had reservations about spending $200 on a case, but it was the only way to get everything I wanted in a case:
1. Bottom mount CPU
2. Dust filters
3. cable management behind the Motherboard plate.
4. lots of drive bays
5. Hot swap bays
6. Great Air Flow
7. Heavy Solid construction

This case has the best tool-less system I have used for installing hard drives and media drives.
I did not have any of the problems mentioned in other comments. I had no issues with removing side panels.

As always, Newegg is the best, I bought the case last week at $200, yesterday the sale started for $20 off. I opened a quick chat using Newegg's online chat and got a $20 gift card in 2 minutes!

Cons: The side fan maxes out around 700RPM, Im not sure if that is a problem with the fan or by design... Other than that, nothing major, but a few things worth mentioning as Nothing is Ever Perfect.

Did not come with the 2nd fan on top. As others have said, we drop $200 on this thing, including one more fan would not kill Cooler Master :(

Making the case another 1/2in wide would be nice too. This would allow a little more room for cables on the back side, and a little more room clearance between the side air duct and video card.

A built in all in one card reader & fan controller would be nice to add the wish list also.

Other Thoughts: I did not connect the 1394 or USB3, so I do not know if the front connectors would short out.
I did connect the connect the headphones, but have not used them yet.
