NZXT H1 650W (Black/Transparent)

The chassis is under all criticism right now, as the PCIE riser is incorrectly manufactured, which leads to fire when it is screwed on with a metal screw. NZXT has released plastic screws to prevent the short circuit, but the problem lies in a poorly designed PCIE Riser, which makes it a bad solution. These should be recalled and be completely replaced with a proper riser. Too bad, as it is a nice chassis otherwise!

It has the most important things, but not much more. Worthwhile product for its price if you only want a NAS for use on your LAN. Run with two WD Red CMR 2tb disks in Raid 1 and it works fine so far.

Totally ok at about SEK 1000, when no one is better on sale. Stable speed, relatively fast and cheap. Good budget SSD simply.
Logitech G Pro Gaming Keyboard Clicky (Nordic)

I bought the Logitech G Pro X through their website, which is a very similar keyboard but uses MX-cherry-like switches, as I wanted linear buttons. They are otherwise the same keyboard. Good keyboard, but unfortunately Logitech has skimped on the keycaps, which easily lose color. They are made of transparent plastic which is then painted black with a 'protective' layer of clear lacquer on top. This has made the color of W and Shift already drop and look dull, after less than a year of use. I thought then that it is possible to buy new keys of better quality, but even though my Pro X has cherry stems that are compatible with many keycaps, the layout is not completely standard. A little boring on a premium product.

Better cooling plate for 15 "is hard to find. Most have the fans placed in the wrong places and are made entirely of plastic. This is completely made of metal with rubber feet for grip and it is possible to place the fans so that it fits every single laptop on the market. Technically, you should be able to carry the laptop with it as well, but you usually have to remove the fans then, a little awkward. If you drive completely without the fans, it also works well, of course, because you still get better airflow from the space below. The only problem is that the USB connector is large, it feels like you can easily break your port if you are unlucky.

Really nice chassis. As long as you drive with a 240mm clc or do not need heavy CPU cooling, it is probably perfect for many. Gets hot at the graphics card. Recommends installing a Noctua A12x15 or worse at the top. It comes in cpu coolers that are max 116mm high (NH-D9L for example). Thermaltake has skimped a bit on its size. Has managed to get an SSI-CEB (think E-ATX but a few cm shorter), and a 980ti and runs this as a server / gaming computer. Since my motherboard is larger than what the chassis actually supports, I can not use the included gpu support legs, but I solved it with cable ties and a little creative use of foam pillows. Barely visible. With a 240mm CLC in the front with two Noctua A12x25 and an A12x15 at the top, it still maintains good temperatures while being quiet in normal cases (even though there is a 10c / 20t CPU and a 250W GPU in it. The standard fans that come with the chassis feel very cheap, but there are two in the front. With a Corsair SF750 V2 you can get nice wiring but it requires a little patience, the short sleeved cables that Corsair sends with fit almost perfectly to this chassis in length. Edit: I had to replace my riser cable, some games crashed. So after I switched to Phantek's premium 220mm riser + reinstalled drivers once again, it works fine again. Must have pinched the supplied cable or something that damaged it. An updated version of this chassis would be great! There is one on youtube that has modded the glass panel and tripled 120mm mounts in the front. I got a PCIE to NVMe adapter under the graphics card.

It was good while it worked. After less than a year, I got a bluescreen from this and after restart it was not possible to write to the disk. (Disk write error in steam) Got the disk replaced with one from Seagate instead as it was not in stock. I was probably unlucky.
