LOGISYS Computer CS6802BK Black SGCC MicroATX Slim Case Computer Case 350W Power Supply
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 week to 1 month

4 out of 5 eggs Nice, but fragile power cable 03/09/2015

This review is from: LOGISYS Computer CS6802BK Black SGCC MicroATX Slim Case Computer Case 350W Power Supply

Pros: Size is nice for my ASRock Q1900M running an SSD and 4 port HP NIC for my IPCop box. Easy mobo install, good ventilation.

Cons: •Powersupply is not ideal for my setup. My kill-a-watt measured 17watts for my build. Swapped out the power supply for a Sparkle PS and it measured 9 watts and was much quieter.

•The power cable to the power supply is fragile. In my switch of the power supply the cable must have been damaged (nothing visible- just stopped working). It took me an hour to figure it out--- I put everything back together again and it would not work. I removed their 12" bridge power cable and everything worked fine. OK, tossed that cable in the trash and ran my 3 foot power cable through the case straight to the power supply - minus 1 egg.

Other Thoughts: The power supply is at the front of the case, so they bridge the power supply to an external power plug input mounted to the rear of the case. This allows you to plug your cord from the wall into the back of the case. In between the rear mounted plug joiner is a 12" female to male power cable that plugs into the power supply, and the one in my box was junk.

ASRock Q1900M Intel Quad-Core Celeron Processor J1900 Micro ATX Motherboard/CPU/VGA Combo
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 week to 1 month

Pros: •consumes 9 watts of power with one 4GB mem stick and 1 HP 4 port NIC. Important since this runs 7x24 providing me internet access, VOIP, cable,wifi. My old box box sucked down 70 watts with same configuration, so this thing pays for itself in 6 months

•price after rebate was a smoking deal. I would say a great bargain at Newegg's price

•BIOS was really impressive-- connects to the internet and downloads and installs BIOS updates for you. Sweet.

•Fanless- no noise, no dusty failures down the road

Cons: •could not get this to boot of IPCop USB thumb drive. Not uncommon for the BSD IPCop distro, but a pain for me no less. I tried many different flavors of USB thumbdrive sizes and manufactures but no love. My workaround- cable up a CDRom drove to the mobo, install onto my SSD, shutdown and disconnect the CDRom.

Other Thoughts: It would boot off the following USB media without issue: Win8 install, Macrium, Ultimate Boot disk, PFSense. I tested to make sure I did not have port or mobo hardware issue - no eggs deducted, just an BSD IPCop thing.
