SILVERSTONE Black Aluminum front panel, 0.8 mm SECC body Grandia Series GD01B-MXR ATX Media Center / HTPC Case
  • Owned For: more than 1 year

Pros: - Nice, sleek design that has many visitors to my home asking what it is
- Enough space to cram 6 HDs in there if you want
- Extremely modular

Cons: - Card reader does not work with Win7 64 Bit. Drivers are not available. Silverstone Support is very lacking with this issue as I have been fighting with this over a year. Sent emails but the response remains the same....After all, the integrated card reader is one of the reasons I bought the case in the first place.
- Cable management....good luck with that.
- Remote is not the best and there's no documentation to configure it properly
- Overall documentation sucks wind.
- Adding a fan to the front does not allow for HD bracket to sit flush.

Other Thoughts: There is no question that you need a modular power supply for this case. There is also no question that putting a high powered video card in it will require modification. However, when everything is up and running, the case works fine. I even have the iMON set for my neck of the woods and even have it giving me weather information in Chicago.

Specs:

PS: Silverstone ST70F 700w power supply
Proc: AMD Phenom X2 Black Edition
RAM: 4 GB G.Skill DDR2 1066
Mobo: MSI 785GTM-E45 (Micro ATX)

Added a Xigmatech fan for additional cooling

ABIT KN8 939 NVIDIA nForce4 ATX AMD Motherboard

  • Owned For: 1 week to 1 month

4 out of 5 eggs Pretty decent S939 Board 05/25/2006

This review is from: ABIT KN8 939 NVIDIA nForce4 ATX AMD Motherboard

Pros: - Easy to set up
- Price
- Rock Solid and Reliable

This board has been very rock solid and reliable during the building process of my machine. Under test firings, the board has not disappointed me one time. Many of the connections such as the SATA connectors are in fairly logical locations. Connecting the LEDs and other small connectors was cake.

Cons: - Placement of IDE Connectors in awkward locations.
I would definitely advise using round cables for it because the IDE connectors for the floppy drive are in a very awkward position on the board. The connector is near the PCI slot on the motherboard.

If you elect to use the USB 2.0 connections that come in the package, you may lose a PCI-E slot.

Other Thoughts: This is a good board for building a first system that will be rock solid for years to come.

LITE-ON Beige 16X DVD+R 8X DVD+RW 8X DVD+R DL 16X DVD-R 6X DVD-RW 5X DVD-RAM 16X DVD-ROM 48X CD-R 24X CD-RW 48X CD-ROM 2M Cache ATAPI/E-IDE DVD Burner W/ LightScribe
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 week to 1 month

Pros: One of the first things I noticed about this unit was that it was not as long as other units. That can be a huge plus in cases where airflow can be an issue. As for performance, I was quite pleased. This drive is extremely quiet and will burn DVDs fast. LightScribe works excellently but will take a while (around 20 minutes) to burn the image to the disc.

Cons: As previously stated, LightScribe will take a long time

Other Thoughts: Despite the slowness of LightScribe, I would not hesitate to buy another one of these devices.
