SAMSUNG 850 EVO MZ-75E250B/AM 2.5
  • Owned For: 1 week to 1 month

Pros: Latest technology.
Very high life expectancy.
Very high performance.

Cons: Won't work with AMD RAID

Other Thoughts: I've got a pair of these. Work fine with a separate Marvell 9130 controller in RAID0. Rearranged the box and have a RAID5 through a HighPoint controller, so the PCIE4x isn't available, and the MOBO controller is the only option.

It just won't work, and I'm WAY far from the only one. This has been going on for months and months. Samsung aren't the only ones who don't work with AMD AHCI RAID drivers, but there are some that do. AMD invented the technology these Samsung SSDs are based on; you'd think they would have an interest in making their drivers recognize them. At the very least, Samsung should jump in and do something with their BIOS.

I'm ready to switch to older technology, just to get the RAID0 performance boost, and forget the durability. Starts with In...

Corsair Carbide Series 200R Black Steel / Plastic compact ATX Mid Tower Case
  • Owned For: 1 month to 1 year

4 out of 5 eggs Don't Fill the 3.5in Bays! 12/12/2014

This review is from: Corsair Carbide Series 200R Black Steel / Plastic compact ATX Mid Tower Case

Pros: Lots of room behind the motherboard tray, and mostly well located slots for putting cables through. Didn't notice any sharp edges. Second case for me with this cable hiding 'technology' - have to admit the OCD part of me really liked it. Filled it out most of the way and it still looks neat and is very quiet despite all the holes...

Cons: Did I mention filled out? That 3.5in hard drive bay has atrocious air flow through it when it is full. The middle two drives suffer the most. All my other cases get up in the low 30s Celsius max when working hard. I had to put a Noctua F12 in just to get the middle drives down to 40 Celsius. Probably won't be happy until I put in one of their industrial 2k RPM drives. Never had to work this hard to cool HDs.

Other Thoughts: Combined with a modular Corsair 600W power supply, and it works pretty well. Got an IcyDock 3.5in to 5.25in adapter to add the USB3 based card reader. Took a pcie1x for a Hoo-Too USB3 adapter - the chipset matched the one on the ASUS mobo so no further driver installation needed.

Oh - a little, neatly cut, square of blue painter's tape tamed that power led. Competition for the Nebo otherwise...
