Broadway Com Corp FX-Series FX-RED Black / Red SECC Steel Computer Case

1 out of 5 eggs Horrible Quality 06/29/2011

This review is from: Broadway Com Corp FX-Series FX-RED Black / Red SECC Steel Computer Case

Pros: Looks Nice... That is all!!

Cons: If you decide to purchase this case (which I do not recommend), see below.

1. Before installing any thing, look for the power led and HDD led cables (wires). I had to basically take the top section of the case off to release the pinched/caught/missing wires.

2. If you plan to install a DVD/CD in the top bay, do this before installing the PSU or CPU cooler. The drive must be installed from the back.

3. Very flimsy metal.

Other Thoughts: I have built many computers and have purchased cheap and expensive cases ( $15.00~$200.00 ). The cheap cases have been better quality than this case. For the current price, the quality should be MUCH better.

I will never buy from this manufacturer again!

Pros: Price to performance ratio.

Cons: none

Other Thoughts: Some of the reviews here are not correct in regard to the power consumption of this card. The video card itself is rated at 165-watt max power consumption which equals 13.75 amps. The power (watt) information is listed on Zotac's website.

Pros: Went straight from stock 3.4 ghz to 4.5ghz with a simple x45 multiplier. That simple... Ran stress test and all is good. Temps not high when using a Zelman cooler. Very fast and stable. Have not tried any thing past 4.5 ghz yet but I think it can go higher without a problem. I will test soon..

Cons: None

Other Thoughts: Upgraded from a i7 920 and happy with the improvement.
