5 out of 5 eggs excellent/solid 10/25/2013

This review is from: ASUS P8B-X LGA 1155 Intel C202 ATX Intel Xeon E3 Server Motherboard

Pros: Includes server03 drivers. Have 3 of these with an intel BX80623E31240 (e3-1240) cpu.

Cons: not free

Other Thoughts: Am running ecc ram, but board does not appear to care.

  • Owned For: 1 week to 1 month

Pros: Excellent quality. Great card if you get the pci x16 version.

Cons: Horrible performance in the pci x1 version.

In Win BP655 mini ITX case with Haswell Ready 200W power supply, 8cm Fan, Black, TAC 2.0, Front USB 2.0X2, HD audio
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: more than 1 year

Pros: I've build up around 50 systems with this case. It's awesome, especially considering the price. I would pay $100 for this case.

It takes a larger power supply than mini itx usually uses. I take this to mean longevity. Time will tell.

I can have a complete pc built using this case in ~15 mins. This includes all the unboxing of the case, mobo, ram, cpu, dvd, and hdd.

The power button is solid and reliable. Pressing it too hard won't break it like some cases.

The wires are a little tight, but I found that it's all in how you assemble the components. The hdd itself is easily secured by a vertical screw from under the dvd.

I don't have an problem with the fan noise. Maybe it's my selection of boards... I am using asus p8h77-i and p8h61 currently. I used a few intel boards also, but can't remember any noise problems. I do stick to the <65w cpus.

I don't have a problem w/ sharp edges. I've been building pcs for ~20 years and have seen a sharp edge or two in that time; this case does not have them.

Faceplate removes easily for cleaning/etc. It also goes back on easily and securely as well.

I have not had a side/case fan fair on these yet. Yeah it's not a standard fan you can buy anywhere, but I doubt I w/ have a problem ordering one. Honestly, since the pws has a good fan, you could skip the side fan.

Cons: If I had to complain about something it would be gloss black face. It makes matte black dvd drives stand out a little. Maybe I should try and find some new dvd drives that are shiny?
