Western Digital Red NAS Hard Drive WD20EFRX 2TB IntelliPower 64MB Cache SATA 6.0Gb/s 3.5
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: more than 1 year

Pros: I have five of these running now as members of two different arrays. They work great. Sometimes they can get a little hot, like during a parity check operation where the disk is seeking for 24-36 hours straight. Speed is good for RAID, and have been reliable for me so far.

Cons: Could be cheaper, WD charges a premium for the fancy red label (I have a bunch of WD Greens running in arrays too that work just as well)

Other Thoughts: Hope drive prices come down. I'd love to get some 8TB disks for my arrays.

Noctua NH-L9i 95mm SSO2 CPU Cooler

3 out of 5 eggs Bad fan 06/13/2015

This review is from: Noctua NH-L9i 95mm SSO2 CPU Cooler

Pros: Small. Works.

Cons: Fan making grinding noise after 3 months of 24/7 use. Noctua's RMA process is.... well.... it could be easier.

Other Thoughts: Nice HSF overall. Probably easier for me to buy a new fan vs jump through Noctua's hoops.

SILVERSTONE MILO Series ML06B Steel Body Mini-ITX Media Center/ HTPC Computer Case with Aluminum Front Panel
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: less than 1 day

Pros: Extremely beautiful, elegant. Plenty of room inside. Love the downward facing LEDs. Comes with a filter for the top 120mm fan and other niceties. Typical Silverstone quality. My third Silverstone case, definitely not my last. May buy only Silverstone from now on. Non-modular SFX PS fit perfectly, no cabling issues. Running the Noctua low-pro cooler, could easily fit a 120mm top fan, 3.5" disk, etc in the "option bay" on the top. Very sturdy. Two 80mm fan slots are a huge bonus and are most welcome.

Cons: Rubber feet are too tall (1/2" or more). No USB2.0 option. No ventilation for the HDD bays (Silverstone you should have drilled some vent holes in the bottom or on the side). Honestly I am nit-picking, this case in fantastic, most will probably use SSDs anyway.

Other Thoughts: Wish there was a USB2.0 option. No issues with power button (first day of ownership, but its a server so the power button will be seldom used). I actually may buy a second to use as for my primary desktop and try to fit a 120mm radiator/fan in it. Drill vent holes on the side for the HDDs, put the rubber feet on that side, and run it as a tiny slim tower beside my desk. More room inside than I thought I'd have. i7-2600K with Noctua low-pro cooler and plenty of room to spare, 32C under load with two SilenX 80mm yellow fans for exhaust. FSP Group SFX PS. Very quiet. Upgraded from an M350/PicoPSU, couldn't be happier.
