iStarUSA TC-RPSL20 20
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 month to 1 year

3 out of 5 eggs Fits, but requires tweaking 05/23/2015

This review is from: iStarUSA TC-RPSL20 20" Sliding Rail Kit for Most Rackmount Chassis

Pros: Fit the rack.

Cons: Doesn't seem to fit evenly in the rack.

Other Thoughts: I am using 3 of these and all appear to have same issue. I am using 2 different models of iStarUSA cases for these rails. When installing normally with the square hole adapters, and then pushing the case in, the case is not level, where the left side screw holes don't line up with the square holes in the rack.

I had to rig it where the left side would be offset upwards about 3 mm so that it would slide in and align with the rack holes normally.

I have other railed equipment in the rack and it does not have this problem so it isn't the rack's fault. It is doable in the state but I don't like having to rig things to get them to work.

GELID Solutions CA-PWM 350 mm PWM Y Cable
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 month to 1 year

5 out of 5 eggs Very handy 05/06/2015

This review is from: GELID Solutions CA-PWM 350 mm PWM Y Cable

Pros: A very convenient way to combine two fans for one cable. Most motherboards only have one fan slot for the back of the case and many cases have two spots for rear fans.

Cons: The length of the cable is a bit long, had to use a zip tie to wrap up the excess.

Other Thoughts: Using this in 3 server builds, each of their cases have two rear 60 mm fans that share the port on the motherboard. While the BIOS is supposed to show the RPM of one of the fans, it does not average them, and sometimes the reading could be way off such as indicating the fans are going at 17000+ RPM (and that is not a typo).

Athena Power AP-P4ATX60FEP8 20+4Pin 600W Server Power Supply - 80 PLUS Bronze

5 out of 5 eggs A bit pricey, but excellent performance 08/07/2014

This review is from: Athena Power AP-P4ATX60FEP8 20+4Pin 600W Server Power Supply - 80 PLUS Bronze

Pros: A server rated power supply with plenty of power. 80 plus certified. As the product advertises, this PSU is very quiet with the two fans.

Cons: A little bit expensive for what it is. Would like to see this for about $20-$30 cheaper. It's sibling is half the cost but at the expense of noise. See other thoughts.

Other Thoughts: The sibling I refer to is N82E16817338012. I exchanged that PSU for the one in this review. The one above had similar specs and was half the cost but did not have the 80 plus certification and the fans were very loud (probably just a defect). Overall, I'm glad I made the exchange, the one in this review is much better in terms of noise.
