Toshiba Q Series HDTS212XZSTA 128GB SATA III Internal Solid State Drive (SSD)
  • Owned For: 1 day to 1 week

Pros: Cheap

Cons: Cheap

Other Thoughts: I got this as an OEM plain white box on sale. Installation hung up, and I tried formatting using a HHD dock on an up-and-running PC. I returned the defective drive and its replacement also can't format. I've done dozens of Linux installs, and a fair number with a SSD. Only once before did I run into issues, with a Mushkin drive, and its replacement worked fine. Even a cheap SanDisk SSD has been working well (albeit for just 6 weeks to date). Toshiba seems to ship junk out their doors.

Cooler Master MegaFlow 200 - Sleeve Bearing 200mm Blue LED Silent Fan for Computer Cases
  • Owned For: 1 day to 1 week

Pros: Two of these went into a HAF 912 perfectly, and run dead silent. Besides the 120mm exhaust fan the case came with, there's only these and a 14cm side fan (with a SilverStone dust filter - the HAF 912 filters all other intakes) as far as case cooling goes. A 4790K CPU (with a 912 EVO) and R9 270X GPU, etc. just don't get hot in there. It quietly does the job even when editing and converting video files. Silence and performance = having my cake and eating it too.

Cons: Like most makes, these come with chrome-colored screws. Cooler Master themselves mostly puts out black cases, and a simple but nice asthetic touch is to not draw attention to the fan's mounting screws. They should package these with black screws. What would it cost 'em? A few pennies?

Other Thoughts: The HAF 912 came with braces that fit perfectly in the front 20cm fan. You can see it's intended to receive one of these there in most assemblies. If you order a HAF 912, don't hesitate to get at least one Cooler Master 20cm fan too.

EVGA SuperNOVA NEX 750 B 80 PLUS BRONZE Certified 750W Active PFC ATX12V v2.31/EPS 12V v2.91 5 Year 
Warranty 120-PB-0750-KR SLI Ready CrossFire Ready Modular NEW 4th Gen CPU Certified Intel 4th Gen CPU Ready Power Supply
  • Owned For: 1 month to 1 year

Pros: Long cables - and LOTS of them. Powerful enough to drive a GTX 760 in demanding games. It's pretty quiet, too.

Cons: SATA connectors have way too little length between connectors per cable. Even in a microATX case I had to use two cables for just one optical drived and one HDD because the connector couldn't reach from one to the other on just one cable.

Other Thoughts: If I had it to do over again I might cough up another $30 or so for a more efficient PSU. Still, I can't say I regret the purchase. EVGA makes good stuff, IMHO.
