This review is from: SilenX EFX-09-12 92mm Effizio Quiet Case Fan
Pros: It's silent from a distance of 2 feet running at 12v in an exhaust fan configuration. It moves air. Could probably serve as a lone case fan in a low-demand home/office machine. Comes with silicone noise damping mounting thingies. Looks great in my black and white case.
Cons: None so far.
Other Thoughts: Took me a while to figure out the silicone mounting thingies but it was worth every minute, they're great.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: It's a good drive for everyday use. It was packaged correctly and was not dead on arrival.
Cons: Not the fastest drive around but again, it's perfect for what it is.
Other Thoughts: Bare drives on Newegg seem to be hit or miss - my friend ordered one at the same time and his arrived dead and poorly packaged. I wouldn't have ordered this if I hadn't been prepared to return it and wait a few weeks.READ FULL REVIEW
This review is from: Fractal Design Core 1000 Micro ATX Computer Case w/ 1 x 120mm fan
Pros: Good aesthetics and very well built for the price. I like the hdd mounting system - maintains good airflow and reduces noise. Comes with an excellent Fractal R2 series 120mm fan that can run silently while still moving enough air for a case intake.
This is an excellent case for a budget quiet pc build.
Cons: Needed a fan controller to get the case fan running silent - at 12V it was actually pretty loud, and the fan requires voltage regulation (no pwm). PSU mounts at the top of the case. Cable routing requires some creativity - no space behind the motherboard etc.
Other Thoughts: Front panel for USB / audio is on the side of the front panel; to your right if you're facing the case. Looks really sharp though.
I had to add an exhaust fan in back for this case to run silent without overheating; including the fan controller mentioned above this added $20 to my build. Not bad, really.
For low-impact computing (i.e. no gaming or multimedia production) this probably wouldn't be necessary.
