This review is from: ZALMAN CNPS9500A-LED 92mm 2 Ball CPU Cooler
Pros: Fits in my Rosewill 4U rack-mount server case with about an inch to spare. Front to back airflow, keeps my FX-8320 cool, stock CPU settings and not overclocked although there is room to do so and stay at good temps.
Other Thoughts: Did not use included fan controller. Motherboard fan power settings are set manually to full.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: This is my second 4U Rosewill case, my other has 12 x hot swap bays. These really clean up a network rack. I consolidated 3 physical servers into a virtual server and used this case for better airflow.
Cons: Heavy, but not really a con. It's a solid case.
Other Thoughts: Two SSD drives for VM operating systems and two spinning disks for storage. Case fits a 92 mm Zalman cooler with about an inch to spare. Everything seems to stay pretty cool.READ FULL REVIEW
This review is from: Seagate Backup Plus Slim 1TB USB 3.0 Portable Hard Drive STDR1000101 Silver
Pros: Picked this up to use as a backup drive for critical files off of my RAID array. Manual monthly backups and stored in a fire safe. Works great because it's USB3 and small, doesn't take up too much room in my safe. Will pickup the 2 TB model once I need more space.
Other Thoughts: I've always been a Western Digital customer, but this drive has worked out well so far. I may give Seagate a run next time I need internal drives (desktop or NAS).READ FULL REVIEW
