Western Digital RE3 WD1002FBYS 1TB 7200 RPM 32MB Cache SATA 3.0Gb/s 3.5
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 day to 1 week

Pros: Cheap enterprise HD drive with large space to fill.

Cons: Louder than typical hard drives, sounds similar to an old velociraptor 10,000rpm drive.

Other Thoughts: Formatted, installed o/s and ran WD diagnostics and no errors. It's a bit noisier than some of my other hard drives, and comes with Dell sticker but would buy another as long as it doesn't come DOA. I've had the best luck with WD hard drives over the years even buying refurbs.

Rosewill FBM-01-450P Dual Fans MicroATX Mini Tower Computer Case with 450W power supply
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 day to 1 week

Pros: Price and power supply bundle make it great for those on a budget. It's made of fairly thin material so it is very lightweight, but not overly thin where case is easy manipulated.

Cons: No usb 3.0 for front panel, but in my case not needed. Also wouldn't be bad to include a dust filter for intake fan and more ventilation up front. I would actually prefer no side ventilation to cut down on noise.

Other Thoughts: The case is actually a lot sturdier than other budget cases I have dealt with. It meets my expectations as far as price and durability go. The fans that are included are fairly quiet, but also are disappointing in terms of airflow. Overall I would recommend for a budget build,

Team Elite 8GB (2 x 4GB) 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM DDR3 1333 (PC3 10600) Desktop Memory Model TED38192M1333HC9DC
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 day to 1 week

Pros: Works out of the box and cheap. Will fit easier in cases where space is limited.

Cons: Timing are not great and speed is relatively low compared to other ram sold these days.

Other Thoughts: While this ram seemed to run fine at XMP speeds I tested it with memtest and got errors. I was only able to run stable with 9-9-9-27 2t timings

This is fine because this ram was used in a budget build.
