Pros: Fast - Booting with a 7200 RPM 320GB hard disk was 31 seconds to get to the start menu and 50 seconds before hard disk activity drops to nothing. With the SSD installed the system was full booted and the SSD was idle at 25 seconds. Office opens instantly.
3 Year Warranty
Cons: Does not support encryption (At least according to Intel). Had to RMA it because of this :-(
Other Thoughts: Same PCB as the Intel 520, so I wouldn't be surprised if it does do encryption and Intel just won't fess up to it.READ FULL REVIEW
Individual activity/power lights for each drive
High/Low fan speed adjustment
55/60/65 Celsius adjustments for the temperature alarms
Hard drives idle between 38-41 Celsius
Cons: The locking mechanism is on the ejection button. To lock these, I have to hold the drive latch down and twist the lock.
Other Thoughts: You don't need to plug all the power cords in on the back. Instructions indicate you just need to plug two of the four in. I used two molexes power connectors and it runs fine.
I don't hear the fan from this enclosure, but my PC is already fairly loud, so I can't comment how quiet it really is. Not sure how efficient the fan in the back is when the drive latches or any of the rest of the front of this device isn't mesh so it can breathe.
This review is from: Dynatron A48G 70mm 2 Ball CPU Cooler
Pros: Solid Copper, Heavy, You can rotate the fan to blow a different direction
Cons: The black plate that the fan screws down to has the hole where the fan sucks air cut off-center. This means that while you can rotate the direction the fan blows, it won't be centered over the hole (And is probably less efficient then)
Other Thoughts: I'm getting about 34C idle with an Athlon II X4 e610 and arctic silver.READ FULL REVIEW
