Rosewill RSV-R4000 - 4U Rackmount Server Case / Chassis - 8 Internal Bays, 4 Included Cooling Fans
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: 1 month to 1 year

Pros: It look nice on the outside

Cons: A few major issues with the design of this case: 1) it is very cramped for a full size 4U board. 2) The hard drive mounting system is painful, the drive mounting system reaches over the motherboard components making it impossible to utilize all the drive internal drive bays. 3) the internal drive cage uses a very non ergonomic mounting system which touches the motherboard!

Other Thoughts: I also had an issue with this case as it was not grounded properly and made my server board randomly blank screen and not post. After moving the system into a different case, all the same components, it worked great.

Past return date otherwise this case would be RMAed!

CORSAIR XMS2 2GB (2 x 1GB) 240-Pin DDR2 SDRAM DDR2 800 (PC2 6400) Dual Channel Kit Desktop Memory Model TWIN2X2048-6400C5DHX
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: less than 1 day

Pros: None.

Cons: Could not get these to work when installed together. Would sometimes start with one installed at a time and other times I would get beep errors.

Tried them one at a time in a second PC. Would not start, got beep errors from both.

Other Thoughts: Used all proper procedures aka anti static strap, anti static matte.

Have been building PC for many years and this is the second time a corsair product has failed on me. Will probably not recommend a corsair product again.

Total waist of return shipping cost. Return Shipping cost 25% of the total price.

Rosewill RCX-TC060 Thermal Compound
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: 1 day to 1 week

5 out of 5 eggs Outperforms the listed specs 07/19/2010

This review is from: Rosewill RCX-TC060 Thermal Compound

Pros: This thermal compound worked very well for my AMD II 940 x4. Viscosity of this past seems more liquid than those of other barns ,including Arctic Silver 5. I am shocked to find the Rosewill past is outperforming the Arctic Silver 5. (see other thoughts)

Cons: The applicator is acceptable but not great, the brush and handle are to soft. Because of the type of container it is important to mix the past to achieve maximum results. This past may need time to cure.

Other Thoughts: I was using Arctic Sliver 5 before using the Rosewill RCX-TC060 past. Contrary to the specs of Arctic Sliver vs Rosewill past, the Roswill seems to be out performing the Arctic. I was running at ~40c with the Arctic Sliver, after applying the Rosewill product my temps have dropped. Day 1 I was running at the same temps ~40c, Day 2 my temps dropped by ~2c, Day 3 my temp are now at ~36c.

I think the viscosity of this past may give it an advantage.
