Pros: This chassis does nothing good that any other doesn't do better, though I was technically able to get a server built in it, after much pain.

Cons: -Came with severely physically damaged fan.
-Came with broken power LED FP wire, it had come out of the shoddy glue they used to attach them. Our server doesn't have a working power indicator thanks to this. The rest look like they are barely holding in place, hopefully none of them fall out.
-Build quality is the lowest I have ever seen in a server chassis. It's actually worse than rock bottom priced consumer chassis. Seriously, everything feels so flimsy and any drilled holes have pretty jagged edges. There is no point in RMAing this chassis for any defects, as it is so shoddy any replacements will inevitably have their own issues.
-Standoffs are not removable and are a weird height, but don't worry! Thanks to the terrible build quality you can hammer them out with a light tap since the rivets are barely thicker than tinfoil.
-Came with annoying blue plastic glued to every metal exterior which took two people 30-60 minutes to completely remove, little by little. I honestly don't remember how long this took, but it felt like hours because of how tedious it was.

Other Thoughts: This is the first chassis we've ever used from Athena Power, and I can safely say nobody I work with will ever recommend anything from this brand again as long as we live. We will tell tales of its legendary shittiness for many years to come to scare our part timers and student workers.

I am not a verified buyer since it was ordered trough my company's purchasing department. If you doubt this review's legitimacy, feel free to order it yourself. I have precisely zero doubt that you will be posting a similar review.

GIGABYTE GA-B85M-D3H LGA 1150 Intel B85 HDMI SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 Micro ATX Intel Motherboard

Pros: This motherboard has everything you need for a basic build.

-Straightforward layout.
-Good expansion options.
-No problems installing it.
-Sufficient headers.
-Looks really nice actually.

-Boots fast, doesn't take a long time posting.

Cons: The io shield is basic and has a lot of gap between it and the io ports.

Other Thoughts: If I was going to build a gaming rig I'd be perfectly happy using this. The bells and whistles of more expensive boards are unnecessary.

5 out of 5 eggs Very Quiet 01/25/2014

This review is from: SilenX EFX-08-15 80mm Effizio Quiet Case Fan

Pros: Pushes a decent amount of air and I can only hear it with my ear right next to it. Good fan. Also looks sturdy and cool. Comes with excellent anti vibration mounts in place of screws.

Cons: None.

Other Thoughts: I plan on buying more of these in the future.
