WD BLACK SERIES WD2003FZEX 2TB 7200 RPM 64MB Cache SATA 6.0Gb/s 3.5
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 month to 1 year

Pros: - Inexpensive.
- 5 year warranty.
- Rather fast once accessed.
- WD reliability and stability.

Cons: - Rather loud when it kicks in (see Other Thoughts.)

Other Thoughts: - I use mine strictly to store data, record video to, and play media. I run my OS, programs, and games off SSD drives so the drive isn't being accessed during regular use. When accessing folders and browsing the drive it is quite loud and takes a moment to spin up.

- Recording video and watching media does not seem to cause as excessive of a noise as initially browsing the drive, so maybe use as a daily driver wouldn't be overly noisy. Once accessed the drive is quite fast and have no stutters or other issues when recording video to it.

Corsair Graphite Series 760T Black Steel / Plastic ATX Full Tower Windowed Gaming Case with two 140mm red LED fans
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 week to 1 month

Pros: -Absolutely gorgeous, super stylish, clean, and classy without looking "gamer-y".
-Cavernous interior, especially when you remove the drive cages.
-Tooless SSD and 5.25" bays.
-Pre-installed motherboard standoffs are always great.
-Easily removable side panels that also swing open. Both feature very heavy duty but easy to open latches. The windowed panel is huge to show off all your shiny parts.
-There is a large amount of room behind the
-Excellent build quality.
-Easy to remove dust covers for the PSU and front intakes.
-Massive top radiator or fan mounts.
-Quiet 140mm case fans with an included 2 speed fan controller.
-All the wonderful cable management you would expect from Corsair.

Cons: -I've heard a few people had issues with the front dust filter's snap in connectors being busted, but Corsair appears to offer replacements (whether paid or free is unknown to me).
-I used an all in one cooler (the Corsair H105) and the screws that came with it would not fit through the rubber grommets on the top without some force and squishing, could be solved with some longer screws from your local hardware store.
-If you want to build a custom watercooling loop, you won't be able to mount the reservoirs on the MB tray due to the tooless SSD cutout. You should be buying the D series anyway.

Other Thoughts: I grabbed a flexible magnetic filter for the top rad just to prevent dust from falling in and give it a cleaner look.

KINGWIN HDM-229 Metal Mounting Kit
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 week to 1 month

5 out of 5 eggs Works As Intended 02/13/2015

This review is from: KINGWIN HDM-229 Metal Mounting Kit

Pros: -Good quality stamped metal.
-Fit well into my Corsair 760t, though the tooless mechanism wouldn't work and I was able to just screw it into place.
-Easy to figure out installation (the shorter side goes against the drive).
-Lots of flexibility in the form of multiple and elongated mounting holes.

Cons: -No instructions, but this picture from the Kingwin website will help anyone that is confused. (http://www.kingwin.com/wp-content/uploads/2014/09/HDM-229-C1.jpg)
-Unlikely to be compatible with a tooless mounting system.
