LSI MegaRAID Internal Low-Power SATA/SAS 9261-8i 6Gb/s PCI-Express 2.0 w/ 512MB onboard memory RAID Controller Card, Single--Avago Technologies
  • Owned For: 1 week to 1 month

Pros: Raid 6. Fast and easy to setup... with the issue

Cons: This card gets HOT! These are meant for servers with powerful fans. I installed mine and quickly got to transfering my data. The raid would disappear. On reboot id get a list of errors saying my memory on the card was bad. My machine has good cooling ( so i thought ). I tested by placing a box fan against the case and boom. Running without issue. I am ordering delta fans as we speak.

Also the supplied software lacks good features. I cannot setup anything outside a local smtp server for warnings. They have some addons but charge you for them.

Other Thoughts: Raid 6. 8x 3TB Sata
GA-990FXA-UD3 ( rev 4 ) Mobo

4 out of 5 eggs Simple, Elegant. Not Perfect 05/30/2014

This review is from: Thermaltake Urban S71 VP500M1W2N Black SECC ATX Windowed Full Tower Chassis

Pros: Case Keeps my equipment very cool.
Its dusty but my house is. The filters help a lot.
Cable management!!!!

Cons: I had trouble mounting my cpu watercooler (double fan) to it. I had to remove the top fan and cut some of the case to get it to fit.
Even before modding the case the top part is very easy to pop off so be careful transporting this anywhere.

Other Thoughts: Has had a few problems but overall im very happy with this purchase. Its not too flashy, keeps my equipment nice and cool, helps keep dust out with those filters, and looks great!

Thermaltake Urban S71 VP500M1W2N Black SECC ATX Windowed Full Tower Chassis
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 month to 1 year

Pros: Sexy. Lots of filters. plenty of ways to hide wires to make your rig look neat. 4 front usbs (2 2.0 / 2 3.0)

Cons: This case is really nice but it did have some shortcomings . First the top is really flimsy so be careful picking this beast up. the top will come right off. Also the top of the case wouldnt accept all the screws for a 240mm cpu radiator. you have to leave some off. I also has to remove some plastic from the top part to get my pushpull configuration up. I quite dont get the fan control as it doesnt really work that well (doesnt really matter to me). The top fan was squeaky after only a few days. Thankfully i already removed it for the installation of the 240mm radiator.

Other Thoughts: Almost my perfect case. Still pleases me greatly.
