SeaSonic SS-300ES Bronze 300W ATX12V V2.3 80 PLUS BRONZE Certified Active PFC Power Supply
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 month to 1 year

Pros: Seasonic is a top brand in power supplies. Even though this is an OEM unit with a 3 year warranty, I have no concerns about its quality.

Cons: LOUD. Loud is relative, but the fan they have in here is a cheap dual ball bearing 80mm that spins at at least 2000RPM.

The noise is quite noticeable. That quite as in very, not quite as in quiet misspelled.

If you want something quiet, the 120mm fan version might be better (my chassis is designed for the 80mm type, otherwise...) or something more expensive.

Other Thoughts: I ended up spending $15 on a Noctua fan to replace the included one. Altogether I probably could have just gotten a bigger, quieter PSU for the same price.

Antec Nine Hundred Black Steel ATX Mid Tower Computer Case with Upgraded USB 3.0
  • Owned For: less than 1 day

Pros: Good airflow, quiet, sturdy

Cons: No cable management, awkward, overbuilt hard drive mounting system which uses nonstandard screws, strange appearance.

Other Thoughts: This is an old design, and it shows. The cable management is nonexistent, and makes the window more of a liability than a benefit, since you're left with a ball of snakes.

Installing the hard drives is a real pain, since they're in 3-slot units which include the fan and grill, and they slide out the front of the chassis—except the fan wire and the cables for any already-installed drives keep the unit from sliding out. So that's incredibly awkward.

Basically, there is no reason to buy this chassis. I think it just has the reviews it does because it's OLD. There are any number of modern cases that are cheaper, easier to work with, and have equally good airflow.

SAMSUNG 4GB 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM DDR3 1600 (PC3 12800) Desktop Memory Model MV-3V4G3/US
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 day to 1 week

Pros: 2000MHz 9-9-9-24-1N 1.5V (i5 3570k & Z77 board)


No tacky heat spreader


Cons: Packaging requires tearing or scissors to open

Other Thoughts: The way these fly under the radar is astonishing. I got the "customer choice" RAM (with 800+ reviews) for the exact same price and it wouldn't OC nearly as far... didn't hear about these until I was poking around on some OC website. And even THEY lament the fact that the 8GB pack is out of stock everywhere--just get 2 4's! Gosh...

This RAM provides high-end performance at a commodity price. This is simply the best RAM out there--unless you want to pay through the nose, and even then, you'll probably need to run higher voltages.
