WD Black 1TB Performance Desktop Hard Disk Drive - 7200 RPM SATA 6 Gb/s 64MB Cache 3.5 Inch - WD1003FZEX
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: 1 week to 1 month

Pros: Quiet, fast, runs cool.

Cons: see other thoughts

Other Thoughts: Bought three of them for use as a storage drive in 3 separate computers. The plastic on the corner of the side with the connectors had a pretty big dent: got smashed in at some point (probably at the factory) but the drive seems to be working without any issues after a week of use.

Thermaltake V3 Black Edition VL80001W2Z Black SECC / Plastic ATX Mid Tower Computer Case
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: 1 week to 1 month

Pros: A good amount of room, looks nice - especially with the blue LED (not over the top). Good build quality. Cooling seems to be decent (don't think these will be used heavily enough to test it heavily though)

Cons: Hard drive bay faces inwards, would be easier to access if it faced outwards. Also, it can be somewhat difficult to do wire management, but it isn't too bad.

Other Thoughts: While it doesn't have a particular spot for SSDs (at least that I saw) it does come with screws that fit it, I just mounted it in the normal hard drive bay with one screw.
I built three computers with this case to be used for CAD. The cases are very easy to work with.

  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: 1 week to 1 month

Pros: Runs cool and Quiet.

Cons: The SATA connectors are a little bit stiff, making it a little difficult to connect and disconnect them.

Other Thoughts: Works well, put this in three builds with an i7-4770 and a low-end professional graphics card.
