Thermaltake Core G3 (Black/Transparent)

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.

Superb switch to the rest of the Unifi series. Gets hot - give it access to cool air.

Good router with most things you could wish for. Seems to be hard to get hold of right now, I bought mine on Ebay for a thousand bucks. Supports 24v or 48v per interface so you can power them all? poe APs from iaf the same manufacturer. (48v AC adapter included). Disadvantages of this router are that the PoE transformer gets hot and if you use Smart Queue you lose a lot of speed - can go down to 60/60 as a minimum. I solved the heat problem by pasting a Noctua A9x14 in black - it would go on two pieces perfectly on the top if you want. They have almost identical dimensions to the router. SQ allows the network to live without.

Suitable for creating ventilation in TV cabinets, etc. for all media units there. They use IP67 just to be sure that they survive a lot of dust without the bearings getting bad. Low noise level as long as you do not drive them at full speed.

It works well and does not take up much space. But I do not understand why they have chosen a RED cable for the gray / black machine. You have to paint or hide the cable if you want it to stand in front. Terrible color choice.

Disappointed with this router from Asus. It is not able to unlock the SIM card automatically and you then always have to enter the PUK code to unlock it after it has tried to enter it automatically. It loses contact from time to time, which makes the first problem even worse. Web GUIN is quite sluggish and if you connect an external HDD, the router will eventually crash. (3TB disk over USB3.0). Has now switched to a TP-link MR600 which has worked much better in every way. In it I could also delete the PIN code completely, and read SMS in the web interface. (Does not work on Asus). Has a subscription from Tre, which can happen to be a bad pairing with Asus router. At least avoid that combination.

Lacks USB but otherwise it has so far been a really good 4G router. Simple and functional web interface. Speed test built into the router's side, which then takes place directly from the router. No problems with specific pages or anything like that. Updates if any problems occur.

Duger for a 3400G and supports a kit with 2x8gb 3200 / CL14 B-Die memories (F4-3200C14D-16GFX). It's cheap and good enough for an APU. When I got a replacement card from the Webhallen, the new one was already flashed for the 3rd gen ryzen and brought that sticker to the cardboard box. No Bios flashback feature so think about how to update the bios. Some retailers may do this for you. Oldest cinema supports 1500X but many of these support 2000 series, check with your fan. Bought at Webhallen for SEK 449 (bargain). But was on sale at BF19 for SEK 649 at Komplett. For SEK 800 + there are much better motherboards. Gigabytes B450M DS3H is much better for ~ 800 SEK.
