This review is from: Antec Nine Hundred Black Steel ATX Mid Tower Computer Case with Upgraded USB 3.0
Pros: - Cheap
- Little shelf up top to put things
Cons: - Hard drive trays are totally non-standard and not at all good. They use long screws (included) to secure hard drives.. So if you lose those special long screws you are out of luck.
- Power Supply BARELY fits in tiny area for it had to bend the metal out of the way, and no bottom ventilation so if your PSU has a bottom fan you'll have to mount it upside down.
- Included fans all have this extremely obnoxious switch on an additional wire that just dangle all around the case because there's no where to put them. Ugly and difficult to keep out of the way of fans.
- None of the fans can plug in with regular Molex so if your motherboard doesn't have enough SYSFAN ports you'll need to get adapters to plug in the fans.
- Had to remove internal fan bracket to fit a GTX 1070 graphics card, BARELY fits & eliminates the ability to use 3 drive bays.
Other Thoughts: I do not understand how this case has nothing but positive reviews when it is so annoying and tedious to deal with.READ FULL REVIEW
This review is from: Antec Basiq BP350 350W ATX12V v2.01 Power Supply - Intel Haswell Fully Compatible
Pros: Works as advertised. Box-like quality that reminds me of minecraft.
Cons: In my ordinary setup the 20/24-pin mainboard power connector is a very tight reach and the ATX 12v connector does not reach.
Other Thoughts: I am normally pleased by Antec power supplies; All I needed was a basic power supply, but I still need the cables to reach.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: Lots of features, decent manual, good looking design with a billion ports.
Cons: Says it supports the Ivy Bridge processors -- DOES NOT.
Only if you upgrade the bios to P2.1.. Well how do you do that? According to ASRock's FAQ #306 you put in a Sandy Bridge CPU and then upgrade the bios to support Ivy Bridge.
I don't even have an operating system yet and they want me to have a different CPU to support my new CPU.
Other Thoughts: No internal IDE port, but has internal LPT? odd.READ FULL REVIEW
