Antec NEW SOLUTION SERIES VSK-3000 Black SGCC steel MicroATX Mini Tower Computer Case
  • Owned For: 1 day to 1 week

Pros: It says Antec on the front. Comes with a fan.

Cons: I ordered two of these and both were identical in their problems. This case is just awful. Incredibly flimsy steel. Screws that hold on the side panels came pre stripped. Those were fun to remove. SSD mount is bent. Power button is flimsy and looks to be partially broken already. Poor hardware assortment.

Other Thoughts: For the money, go with the Rosewill mini tower case. It pains me to say that, but it's the truth.(In this case higher quality, better hardware, 2 fans) Sorry Antec but you've got one heck of a dud with this one. You should be ashamed to put your name on it. I feel especially sorry for anyone who ordered it at regular price.

Intel Xeon E3-1270 V2 Ivy Bridge 3.5GHz (3.9GHz Turbo) 4 x 256KB L2 Cache 8MB L3 Cache LGA 1155 69W BX80637E31270V2 Server Processor
  • Owned For: 1 week to 1 month

Pros: Have purchased several of these for use in midrange servers. They run very cool with the included fan. Are very power efficient. And far faster than the Sandy Bridge unit they replaced.

Cons: Could be cheaper, especially with the V3 out now.

Other Thoughts: This chip does Not have integrated graphics. If you need that go with the 1275. (Models ending in 0 have no graphics, models ending in 5 do) I only point this out because while some server boards do have a dedicated graphics chip built in, a lot are using the cpu graphics now.

MSI N210-512D2 GeForce 210 512MB 64-Bit GDDR2 PCI Express 2.0 x16 HDCP Ready Video Card
  • Owned For: 1 week to 1 month

Pros: Bought this as a basic card for a system that didn't need anything special. Does work.

Cons: Slow even for a 210 chip. Is picky about what motherboards it wants to work in. No included VGA to DVI adapter.

And most importantly, the noisiest fan I've ever heard on a video card. And it's not rpm controllable so it's that noisy all the time. It's louder than the fan on my XFX HD6850 at full speed.

Other Thoughts: For the same amount of money there are better cards out there.
