This review is from: AMS DS-524SSBK 2.5" x4 SATA Backplane Module
Pros: This unit is very solidly constructed, and works great for of ease-of access and swapping out hard drives quickly. Each bay has its own activity light that is blue, but blinks purple to signify activity. Each individual tray is lockable, and it comes with two keys. finally, a great price on the unit!
Cons: I removed one egg because of an annoying issue that occurred for me. After installing my two SSDs into the bay, a witnessed a significant drop in system performance. Mainly loads times for games.
Other Thoughts: Despite the drops in loads time, i still highly recommend this bay. While my SSDs were removed to regain the system speed, it still works great as a 2,5 hdd bay. I am actually ordering a second unit for the hdd trays themselves.READ FULL REVIEW

This review is from: Cooler Master Hyper N520 - CPU Cooler with Copper Base and 5 Heatpipes
Pros: Great cooler, install was fairly simply and straight forward, though it will require the removal of your build to install, unless you are using a new build. Generally keeps my I5-4670K just below 30c (depending on conditions) at idle and have not seen it go above 45c.
Cons: Not One
Other Thoughts: This cooler moves some serious air! For those of you using the Cooler Master HAF EVO, like me, it fits like a charm with room to spare. I configured the two stock cases fan in the front and back of the cooler, all blowing towards the back to maximize cooling.READ FULL REVIEW
