This review is from: Fractal Design Define S Silent Computer Case
Pros: Everything. See Tiny Tom Logan's Youtube review. The main reason I am posting is to tell everyone that the space for air flow from edges of front panel is perfectly adequate for high end air flow. I have a 4770k OC'd and a CM Nepton 280L AOI cooler. The setup is whisper quiet with ***STANDARD*** fan settings on my ASUS Z97-Deluxe fan controls.
Cons: Another 3/8" depth in the back panel side would have made it a Dream Machine.
Other Thoughts: No case is perfect. I have been building systems for 20 some years and to me a case is the excuse to put up with building a new system. This one has made a large stride toward the "Next Generation".READ FULL REVIEW
This review is from: KINGWIN KF-3002-BK Multi-Bay Internal Rack, 3 Drives For 2 Bay Space For SATA
Pros: 3 in 2
Cons: Marvell and Asmedia choke on this puppy! Part of me says "if your arm hurts when you lift it.....don't lift it." On the other hand they should fess up to this. The wierd thing is that the file transfers run for a while hiccuping longer and longer and then slooooooly die with "source file not found". KINGWIN....fix it or admit it!
Kingwin, guys, you came up with a 4 Star BUG!
Pros: Clocked to 4.7Ghz on 1.356Vc with 36c/67c (Idle/Load). Low end closed loop cooler worked just fine. Lots of myths is right, I STILL can't find a verified opinion about whether this baby has an active or inactive (read contributes to heat) IGP (GPU) circuit.
Cons: Intel isn't giving us a price break, even with the lack of GPU because they know that us Geeks know it is a winner. On the other hand Intel isn't a philanthropic organization.
Other Thoughts: If you are not a big-time Gamer, Folder or looking for a "Trophy" chip, this is one SMOOTH puppy! I run 3 2560x1600 displays on 2 cards with no hiccups.READ FULL REVIEW
