HDD Accessory
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 day to 1 week

4 out of 5 eggs Fantastic, BUT... 02/24/2015

This review is from: HDD Accessory

Pros: Very flexible yet sturdy, and the spacing between connectors was perfect for the drives in my case. An absolute must for multi-drive systems considering the length between connectors on most PSUs.

Cons: The orientation of the connectors are geared for a top-mounted PSU, and my case has a bottom-mounted one.

Other Thoughts: If there was a second version of the CP-04E with all the connectors upside down so the main connector to the power supply is at the bottom of a stack of drives, it would be much more useful.

NZXT Source 210 S210-001 Black “Aluminum Brush / Plastic” ATX Mid Tower Computer Case
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 week to 1 month

Pros: Sturdy and well built for a cheap case, painted interior is very nice and the airflow works very well when you add a fan to the front. Despite all the vent holes, as long as you keep the system sparse (mine is a bare minimum HTPC), it is still nice and quiet. Power light is a soft white, not that blaring blue that most cases have.

Great future modding potential.

Cons: It's a tight fit for drives. Had to flex the cages out with one hand while inserting HDD/ODD with the other to get them in properly. Installing spare front fans is a bit of a chore, the front panel doesn't move very far to give you access and there isn't really enough room to make use of rubber fan mounts (I had to resort to screws).

Other Thoughts: There are 4 raised screw holes in the bottom labeled "2.5" drive". It's a lie. I think it's for an actual cage for 2.5" drives, but in no way do they line up with a drive's screw mounts. (Not a con since mounting a 2.5" drive is not in the specs but you see it when you're installing and get hopeful.)

ASUS Sabertooth X79 LGA 2011 Intel X79 SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 ATX Intel Motherboard
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 month to 1 year

Pros: Had all the features I needed-including the PCI slot. Rock solid with OC, recognized memory settings instantly, 5 Yr warranty won't outlast my use of the board, but it's good to have on my side.

Cons: VRMs run really hot >90C under mild OC load, had to put a fan in the case just to blow over the heatsink (that tiny little fan is totally inadequate for the job)
