LIAN LI PC-9F Black Aluminum ATX Mid Tower Computer Case

5 out of 5 eggs Good Case for An Entry Level Workstation 03/06/2015

This review is from: LIAN LI PC-9F Black Aluminum ATX Mid Tower Computer Case

Pros: A large ATX case that is perfect for an entry level workstation. Excellent cooling capability. Comes with removable filters for the front fans which blow over the harddrive cage. The internal hard drive rack can accommodate up to six hard drives with an effective sound deadening. Internally, this case can handle long graphics cards.

Cons: The aluminum feels a little flimsy compared to a Lian-Li Case I purchased in 2002. Fitment is not as tight as the older case.

Other Thoughts: I purchased this case for an engineering workstation build featuring an ASUS P8C WS, an Xeon E3-1250V2 CPU, 32 GB of DDR3-1600 with ECC, a 970GT EVGA graphics Card, a Pioneer Blue Ray Burner and a 10 GB RAID 5 harddrive array.

Intel Xeon E3-1240 V2 Ivy Bridge 3.4GHz (3.8GHz Turbo) 4 x 256KB L2 Cache 8MB L3 Cache LGA 1155 69W BX80637E31240V2 Server Processor

Pros: Very fast chip. Ivy Bridge 22nm, 4-Core, 8-Threads, ECC capable, disabled graphics, its actually cheaper than its desktop equivalent without ECC by $50. Great Value.

Cons: No cons I can seriously gripe about.

CPU runs hot when under Stress testing on all 8 threads because of thermal paste issues. But for the usage I subject this CPU under, this is not a issue to deduct eggs over.

Its hard to find fault with a CPU that works out of the box.

Other Thoughts: I purchased this CPU with an ASUS P8C WS (with C216 chipset) and 32 GB Kingston DDR3-1600 ECC memory because I wanted ECC given there is so much memory on my new build. Operating under Windows 7 Pro for over a year, I have not, REPEAT NOT, experienced one Blue Screen Of Death.

With ECC, this is a very stable system.

Application crashes are extremely rare.

4 out of 5 eggs Decent Motherboard for Graphics Design 11/17/2014

This review is from: ASUS P8C WS LGA 1155 Intel C216 SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 ATX Intel Motherboard

Pros: I found this motherboard to be reliable for a workstation build I have been running for over a year. Pleased with this motherboard except for a glaring pro.

Accepts ECC memory with E3-1240 V2 Xeon Processor. I am currently running 32GB of Kingston DDR3-1600 memory.

Very stable. Very, very few crashes with Windows 7 Pro and Fedora 20.

Cons: The sound chip picks up interference from the Video Card which is very annoying. For a motherboard of the cost that ASUS commands, I expected better design of the sound circuitry having better EMI resistance. A separate Creative Sound Card fixed the problem. This costs an egg in an otherwise flawless performance.

Other Thoughts: Once the latest BIOS is installed, this motherboard is very reliable and accepts all of the devices I have attached to it.
