Rosewill BLACKHAWK-ULTRA Gaming Super Tower Computer Case, support up to HPTX, come with Eight Fans,Top HDD docking - Retail
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 week to 1 month

Pros: Huge
Comes with Caster Wheels, makes it easier to move.
Lots of hard drive slots for a file storage server.

Cons: Very hard to open case. You will have to cast Might and Power on yourself, then pray to Jupiter and Odin for super strength, then invite Hercules and the Hulk over and then you will be able to open this case.

I bench press 5,000,000 milligrams of steel, so I'm pretty Buff.

Other Thoughts: Pretty good case, I love it, leaves no desire to get anything else, very future proof. Fits my H100i and even bigger.
Lots of Hard drive bays.
Lots of Front USB ports
Might want to get a fully modular power supply.
Also you will have to even out your cables on the back side of this case since space is very minimal, my NZXT 410 Tempest Elite has more room than this case if you compare. Once you get this and even out where cables go case cover slides over, otherwise you will have to force it in possibly damaging your cables in the process.

Rosewill if you read this add another half an inch to the side where cables route and you will have a winner.

SYBA SI-PEX40071 8 Internal SATA III Ports PCI-Express Card, PCI-e x2 Slot, Specification V2.0 Plus Low Profile Bracket
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 week to 1 month

Pros: Very High Speed, Average of 150 MB/s to 200 MB/s on SATA III hard drives.

Cons: Will not work with other third party SATA controllers like ASMedia or another Marvell Controllers.

Other Thoughts: I found the installation of this card confusing as my BIOS only shows 3 out the 8 hard drives, that really got me concerned, wish they would have listed that on the manual. But upon loading its dedicated driver in Windows 7 64 bit all 8 hard drives were seen in Windows by not while posting in BIOS. I guess thats normal. I did try to get it working with a second PCIe card with an ASMedia controller but they would just fight and it would not post. Tried with my motherboards onboard Marvell controller and the same thing, they would fight for domination. So Im out 2 Sata ports on my ASMedia Card and 2 more SATA ports on my motherboard, this card picks them all up, when you buy please take this into account. All my Intel based SATA ports work just fine. Im very happy with this card as it works with no issues, transfer speeds are fast and its been solid for the last month.
I would definitely recommend it, just do some research first.

I have 8 3TB hard drives on this card in case you were wondering.

Since I applied this to A PCIe X16 slot now my graphics runs a PCIe 3.0 x8 . This is a limitation of the Intel Chipset, if your motherboards has the tools to correct this then good otherwise if you game this might concern you, go with Intel Enthusiast platform.

Coboc Model SC-SATA3-18-LL-SL 18
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 week to 1 month

Pros: These are ok if all you want them to do is get the job done.

Cons: Cheap but they work.

Other Thoughts: I bought these since I really just wanted something to work, to my surprise I like them, I did replace two of them because it would not reach from PCIe all the way to the front of my full tower, this was my fault as I didnt really measure how much I would need.
