LIAN LI PC-Q25B Black Aluminum Mini-ITX Tower Computer Case
  • Owned For: 1 week to 1 month

5 out of 5 eggs NAS Case 12/10/2013

This review is from: LIAN LI PC-Q25B Black Aluminum Mini-ITX Tower Computer Case

Pros: Excellent case - I was shaking my head with disbelief at how well this case is made. All the usual trimmings of Lian Li - well thought out - I have this thing packed out with 6x 3Tb drives and 2x 120Gb SSD's running NAS4free on a supermicro X7SPE-HF-D525 - headless with IPMI and the web interface on NAS4free - it is in the corner of our basement just purring away providing "limitless" backup and storage space

Cons: Cable management - it is a rats nest in there with 6-3.5" drives and 2-2.5" drives plus all the power supply cables. I didn't have any issue with PSU mounting - but I can see that with a longer PSU it would be a problem - My PSU has just an 80mm fan at the back - not the bigger 120 on the bottom

Other Thoughts: Highly recommend if you want to pack a quantity of drives and have a solid case

TRIPP LITE N201-001-WH 1 ft. Cat 6 White Gigabit Snagless Molded Patch Cable
  • Owned For: 1 week to 1 month

Pros: Has a slim head so it fits into 48 port switches with close spacing - and it is CAT 6 but still flexible - cable is not too thick/heavy to bend

Cons: None - other than not being free :)

Other Thoughts: If the price is right these are good

MSI 990FXA-GD80 V2 AM3+ AMD 990FX + SB950 6 x SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 ATX AMD Motherboard
  • Owned For: 1 day to 1 week

Pros: It has good number of PCI express - and seems to be very solid - have done some hard cycles on it and it comes back everytime - I really like the 'bios' interface - have not tried OC the mainboard, just the GPU's

Cons: The first x16 slot is one down from the top - so the GPU card is on the second slot and this pushes all the rest down a slot - the first available slot is an x1

Other Thoughts: It is a good board for what I am using it for (GPU crunching) - seems to have other nice features that would be useful for a light gaming rig
