Crucial 2GB ECC Fully Buffered DDR2 667 (PC2 5300) Server Memory Model CT25672AF667
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: more than 1 year

Pros: Fast, reliable, heat spreaders do the job.

Cons: They run hot (and not even overclocked) -- you really have to keep the air flowing over these or you'll be in trouble!

Other Thoughts: Crucial makes some of the very best RAM out there -- I've been using Crucial in all my systems for over a decade now and have never once had a stick fail on me. I trust this brand.

ICY DOCK MB453SPF-B 3 in 2 SATA I, II & III Hot-Swap Internal Backplane Raid Cage Module
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: more than 1 year

Pros: They work.

Cons: They don't exactly fit all chassis -- a little bit wide... just a touch. Really had to force them in which made me cringe. The plastics are waiting to snap, but if you're careful you'll be okay.

Other Thoughts: Bought in 2009 and they still work. No complaints there.

3ware 9650SE-4LPML PCI Express Lanes: 4 SATA II Controller Card RAID Levels 0, 1, 5, 10, Single Disk, JBOD, KIT
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: more than 1 year

Pros: Great speed and reliability for the price! You can get about the same for about $100 more with the competition. Supported in FreeBSD and Linux kernels.

Cons: The BIOS setup is somewhat lacking in terms of features and interface but gets the job done. Making sure firmware up to date is a must. But these are to be expected and are definitely not show stoppers.

Other Thoughts: I first bought one of these in 2009 and it has been on ever since. First with 4x WD Raptor in RAID10 -- great! Then 4x Hitachi 2GB in JBOD for FreeNAS -- great! Now 4x Intel SSD in RAID0 -- great!
