Description

Mainly to restart my addiction to Battlefield 3/4. Since building my last PC, I've become a full-time Mac user for both work and home, but it was fun to build a PC again. For 1080p, high-settings gaming, it's been great.

My short review of the case that that I posted on Amazon: Overall, I'm very happy with this case. Love having the media ports and extra USB ports on top since I have this sitting on the floor and the case is not very tall. The ability to pull the integrated top and front panels forward to open up the case is very nice for getting to the internals. However, I do wish you didn't have to remove both side panels and then remove a screw on each side in order to do this (basically means removing a total of 6 screws). Not sure why there is an extra, externally accessible 2.5" slot under the optical drive (Floppy disk? really?). The large fan included is very quiet. I've added a 2nd fan in the back. There appears to be screws to accommodate an SSD drive in the drive trays. However, I'd already velcroed mine to some available surface next to the motherboard. I can use that tray now for a future, 2nd standard HD. Having the motherboard lay horizontally in the case is nice for when you break off the PCI-E lock and don't need to worry about your graphics card sagging over time. :/

nice! I guess the small 2.5 external slot is for card readers or maybe fan controllers.
