  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 month to 1 year

Pros: I received a Dud, failed after a few months. Corsair replaced it with a new unit(1 wk turnaround). Works fine otherwise. nice assortment of bundled cables.

This power supply replaced an older unit that had problems with my Haswell board.

Cons: the fumes when opening the package are quite strong. you may want to air it out a few days.

SILVERSTONE Black Aluminum / Steel Grandia Series SST-GD07B ATX Media Center / HTPC Case
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 month to 1 year

3 out of 5 eggs Old-school design, but versatile with a little modification 08/07/2014

This review is from: SILVERSTONE Black Aluminum / Steel Grandia Series SST-GD07B ATX Media Center / HTPC Case

Pros: With minor modification, this can fit 10x 3.5" drives plus a few more SSDs. I'm using an ATX motherboard, with SAS RAID controller, video tuner/capture board and full length dual-slot graphics card, and 240mm radiator(mounted externally). I also added extra slot fans for the SAS controller and video tuner. It's all a bit noisy under load, so I run this in a closet.

Cons: Steel sheetmetal is thin and the case flexes even when not fully loaded. For hometheater application, thicker gauge metal can cut down on vibration and resonance, especially important when multiple hard drives are used.
The 5.25" half-height bays are obsolete and would be better used for additional 3.5" bays(which I modified as), or slimline 5.25"(Silverstone sells an adapter).

Other Thoughts: a bit expensive for a traditional horizontal "desktop" layout, with black cosmetics for "home theater" use.

ASUS P9D-M Micro ATX Server Motherboard LGA 1150 DDR3 1600/1333
  • Owned For: less than 1 day

Pros: plenty of PCI-E expansion slots

Cons: not enough PCI-E lanes in this CPU family

Other Thoughts: to the previous post: the plastic socket is X16 length, but the electrical interface is X8. An X16 card will only run at X8.
