Corsair Carbide Series Air 540 (CC-9011030-WW) Black Steel / Plastic ATX Cube High Airflow Cube Case
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: more than 1 year

Pros: Solid, quick, well laid. HYOOOGE tracts of fans.
Adjustable large supply retainer with two screws.
Comes in a no-mar cloth bag.
Heavier metal construction, no real warp when pressured.
Will survive being drilled and threaded to put standoffs where they need to go.

Cons: Comes in a static generating no-mar bag fitted with styrofoam in a cardboard box with high metal content. Open it outside away from electronics and combustibles, my arm is STILL numb from the discharge as I write this.

Is NOT E-ATX ready, only has "full" ATX screw holes.
Is about 1mm short of clearance for a 12x13 board.

Other Thoughts: Newegg used to have a good grasp of what the term "server" meant, now it gets slapped on everything from fans to mousepads.

SAPPHIRE 100361BF4SR Radeon R9 290X 4GB GDDR5 PCI Express 3.0 BattleField 4 Game Edition Video Card

5 out of 5 eggs finally, srs bsns from Sapphire/AMD 01/03/2014

This review is from: SAPPHIRE 100361BF4SR Radeon R9 290X 4GB GDDR5 PCI Express 3.0 BattleField 4 Game Edition Video Card

Pros: SOLID solid, not "hey, that's kinda solid" more like "time to hunt buffalo" solid. Good sized blower wheel. 54°C at 100% fan under full folding load in a 73°F ambient room.

Cons: Loud... like don't push hard around kids that are afraid of the dentist. I ran folding@home at max first for a couple minutes then remembered to turn on precision 4.2.1 and it spooled to 100% in just over a second. Screams and whistles.

ID10Ts STILL occluded the rear panel with an useless second dual-link port.

Other Thoughts: I make extensive use of folding@home for heating in the winter. 100% fan it runs at 66°C, effectively the same temp as my Titan at same clock.

Their hard top-end on folding is definitely going to be different since my titan wraps out at 1242MHz air cooled when just folding. At 1GHz clock the 290X is framing at 2:54 and the Titan at 3:24

Did I say it the 290X is loud?
Don't bother using it for anything in an open case, the dog will whine.

Cooler Master HAF Stacker 915F Mini-ITX Computer Case - Supports Large CPU Air Coolers (Front PSU Mount)
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 day to 1 week

Pros: Solid-solid, no warp or noise. Tight reliable fit on all parts.

Cons: room for only a couple drives, whether they be SSD or other. So if I wanted to run a 4 way raid with SSD I'd have to TAPE two of em down.

Mainboard mounting stand-offs had wrong female thread size - was more like the old small screws for floppy and CD drive. If you're gonna use stand-offs, get em from an old case.

Other Thoughts: Certainly a long case. Everything fit in easily, lots of cable tie points and very very little fiddling.

If you're installing a water cooler kit for the CPU its gonna be TIIIIIGHT. !! Will NOT mount the H90 and H110 size (140mm) sinks anywhere. I went with a Khuler - is very quiet.
