BitFenix BFA-MSC-M33F12VOK-RP 7.87
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 week to 1 month

5 out of 5 eggs Very High Quality 08/03/2014

This review is from: BitFenix BFA-MSC-M33F12VOK-RP 7.87" (20cm) Fan Adapter Cable M-M

Pros: Extremely high quality cable all around! I like the orange fabric insulation. Stays cool.

Cons: None.

Other Thoughts: I thought about getting a cheaper cable but read about heat issues with some of the cables in the $3-4 range. This one reminds me of the saying "Quality is long remembered after the price."

*Sidenote: This molex-to-3-pin adapter has only two actual pins in the 3-pin slot. Since it is being connected directly to the PSU there is no need for the third pin - which is for the speed control regulated by the mobo. The fan runs at full speed as a result but its a silent fan so it is just as quiet as when connected to the on board connector.

SILVERSTONE Grandia Series GD05B-USB3.0 Aluminum / 0.8mm SECC  micro-ATX / Mini-DTX / Mini-ITX MB, 1x5.25
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 day to 1 week

Pros: This case fits nicely in my entertainment center. The 5.9" height with beveled edges gives it a nice "component" appearance. The brushed aluminum covering on the front looks high-end. I can't tell it's over plastic at all. My 4.4" x 11" EVGA GTX 780 (Centrifugal cooler fan and no heat pipes on top) fits easily lengthwise with about 1/2 or so to spare. No pressing was needed. It fit height-wise but the ATX power cables at the top of the card need to be pressed a bit to fit the top over them. This is preferable in order to keep the case height down. The case fans are very quiet with only a slight hum in a completely silent room. I can't hear them while gaming. The skeleton is quality steel. All screws lined up perfectly. There is plenty of room at the front of the case to route cables. Ensuring good air flow was a minimal effort in this build. The Power and Reset buttons are quality - slight click and push in only a millimeter or so - nice. I don't foresee them malfunctioning in the future.

Cons: Unfortunately the right front USB 3.0 port doesn't work. The left one is good-to-go.

Other Thoughts: Make sure you use flat, not L-shaped, SATA and power connectors for your HDD. I have a 256gb SSD that sits flush on the hard drive mount. I suppose I could have tried raisers on it - maybe later. This case is replacing an nMedia case that I had to RMA for a defective power switch. This build was going to hold me over until I bought a mini itx mobo for Silverstone's ML07 case but looks good enough that I think I'm going to stick with this for at least a couple years. Additionally the SFX power supply limitation of the ML07 pretty much restricts builders to a 450 watt PSU - which is not powerful enough for a 780, let alone Titan video card. The beveled edges make the difference for a streamlined appearance in a case over 5" tall imo. Windows 7 and Steam in Big Picture Mode + this case = neither of the new game consoles for this guy.
