Cooler Master Elite 130 - Mini-ITX Computer Case with Mesh Front Panel and Water Cooling Support
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: 1 week to 1 month

Pros: thick steel, no sharp edges, great airflow, room for full atx power supply
Extra height for big PCIe cards.
Support for 12mm water coolers.

Cons: non standard drive mounts, many screws

Other Thoughts: I have built my second system in this box and I like it more now. I use this one to do PCIe based development on Xilinx Evaluation cards. Those extra tall cards fit perfectly in this box.
I'm cooling the i7 4790K cpu with a Corsair water cooler.

CORSAIR CX-M series CX450 450W 80 PLUS BRONZE Haswell Ready ATX12V & EPS12V Modular Power Supply
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: 1 week to 1 month

Pros: Hello, At the time of purchase, this modular supply was on sale for less than the non-modular CX430. I built a mini-itx system in the fabulous Cooler Master 130 Elite case. It was nice to eliminate the unneeded cables. All connectors feel high quality. The large fan is barely audible to me. The braided cable sleeves keep things tidy.

Cons: The cables are about 50% too long for my mini-itx build.

Other Thoughts: I still like these power supplies. Keep up the good work Corsair.

Corsair 128GB Voyager GTX USB 3.0 Flash Drive, Speed Up to 450MB/s (CMFVYGTX3B-128GB)
  • neweggOwned For: more than 1 year

Pros: Don't confuse this thing with a USB Flash Drive. It is a real SSD with wear levelling and the performance of a true SSD. I boot and run Ubuntu 15 on a variety of different machines. It is excellent to be able to carry your entire working environment in your pocket. It seems to be about as fast as an internal SATA 3 SSD.

Cons: It could be even smaller. It blocks adjacent USB ports on some machines. It is a little expensive per Gigabyte for an SSD.

Other Thoughts: This drive works as advertised. Good portable boot drive. Congratulations Corsair on a fine product.
