Rosewill RSV-SATA-Cage-34 - Hard Disk Drives - Black, 3 x 5.25
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 month to 1 year

Pros: 4-in-3, simple yet effective design. Trays slide in and out without much effort. A big plus is compatibility with the RSV-L4000 server case and NZXT cases.

Compatible with 2.5" and 3.5" drives. Only needs 2 IDE power connectors to power all four SATA drives.

The 120mm fan is changeable. I used a Noctua NF-S12A FLX for silent operation, plus it already has a short cable so there isn't much extra slack lying around your case (nothing a little zip tie treatment won't fix, however).

CHEAP! Other backplanes of this size with similar features run much more expensive than this.

Cons: It's made primarily of plastic, but that's to keep the overall price as low as possible.

Other Thoughts: Used in an NZXT Phantom. So yes, it is cut to fit tool-less cases, even with guide rails.

SYBA CL-ENC50038 2.5
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 week to 1 month

Pros: Works with no fuss and no mess.
USB 3.0 ensuring minimal bottlenecks.
Simple to install, no extra software needed.

Best of all, CLEAN.

Cons: The way to add a second drive looks awkward at first. But I guarantee it's all in your mind.

Other Thoughts: Haven't fully tested the USB 3.0 yet. I plan to try it out on a SATA3 drive with NCQ. Or maybe just a SSD. We'll see...

Thermaltake Toughpower Grand TPG-1200M 1200W ATX 12V v2.3 & EPS 12V v2.92 SLI Certified CrossFire Certified 80 PLUS GOLD Certified Modular Active PFC Power Supply
  • Owned For: 1 month to 1 year

Pros: Can support 2x Xeon E5-2600 series CPUs, and a full 16 sticks of 4 GB RAM.

Cool, quiet, and stable. No issues.

Cons: ATX power connectors were put on backwards, but that's me being very, very, VERY scrutinizing. Not a real problem.

Other Thoughts: There's a story to this. We recently purchased 64 Thermaltake TPX-1275M power supplies. Some of them would work properly, but a staggering percentage of them (to ballpark it, ~75%) wouldn't power on the system properly when more than 2 RAM modules were installed. It would constantly cycle power, not even POST'ing correctly.

We got in contact with Thermaltake directly (big shoutout to Dhony), and they agreed to exchange all 64 PSUs for the TPG-1200M. The entire time they were very courteous and understanding, advancing us two units to test before we decided to commit to the exchange.

Overall our experience with these supplies, and with Thermaltake in general, has been nothing less than stellar. I would rate 6 stars if possible. Unfortunately, Newegg.
