Kobalt 27-Piece Xtreme Access Socket Set Review

The first thing you need to do when purchasing any hardware item is to check if it will fit your application. If not, then don’t buy it! You might have some other ideas or requirements that are different from what the manufacturer intended. That’s why you should always research before making a purchase decision.

If you’re looking for a new computer case, then you’ll want to look at the following:

What size is it? (width x length) What type of metal does it come in? (steel, aluminum, plastic?) How many hard drives does it support? Does it include cable management holes? Will there be space for additional storage devices such as SSDs or external hard drives? Is there enough room inside the case for all your components and cables?

Before buying a computer case, you should consider the following:

Is it air or water cooled? Which one? How much power does it require? Can I install multiple graphics cards in the same system? What kind of cooling solution do I need for my CPU and motherboard? Do I need to add extra fans to cool down my processor and motherboard? Should I choose a liquid cooler or a quiet fanless model with no moving parts whatsoever like the Intel NUC Mini PC?

When you are planning to buy a power supply, there are quite a few factors to consider, such as:

How many watts do I need? What form factor do I need (ATX, ITX, BTX)? What kind of connections do I need (24 pin, 8 pin, 6 pin)? Does it include any PCI-E power cables? Can the power supply handle multiple graphics cards?

The computer case is the heart of your system, it’s what everything revolves around. It provides a protective shell for your internal hardware, and allows you to see all of your components. If you’re like most people, you probably won’t be satisfied with whatever junker comes with your OEM PC. You’ll definitely want to pick out the case yourself.

When you are planning to buy a keyboard, there are quite a few factors to consider, such as:

What color is the backlight? Does it have any special microprocessors or special features? Does it have extra macro keys? Do I want a wired or wireless option? What kind of cable does it have?

Does it have enough USB ports and/or PS/2 connectors for my mouse and headset?
