This review is from: Fractal Design FD-CA-NODE-804-BL Black Aluminum / Steel MATX Cube Case Computer Case
Pros: - Great design
- Separate thermal zones
- Tons of mounting points for fans and radiators
- 3 good looking and quiet fans included
- Can potentially hold a ton of drives
Cons: - A magnet for finger prints
- Extremely cramped if you intent to SLI or Crossfire
- The slim ODD specifics should be covered in the description
- Cable management was a pain
Other Thoughts: I really enjoy this case. Moved all of the white fans to the window side and used Noctua on the opposite. The BeQueit! Dark Rock 3 looks amazing in the case, BUT its a space hog.
It would be great if the description would mention that to use a slim drive you will need a slimline SATA power cable converter of some sort. The options I found are slim SATA to Molex, slim SATA to standard SATA (in the form of a lead or a straight out converter), or Silverstone makes a power supply cable with 4 connections, 3 standard SATA and 1 slim SATA.
The Silverstone option seems to be the cleanest so I believe I will try it out.
This review is from: nMEDIAPC Black Aluminum Panel PRO-LCD-B Media Center Programmable LCD
Pros: Straight forward installation.
Does exactly what it says. No more. No less
Cons: No support for VLC (the only media player I use)
I think if there were an SSD bracket in the back of the unit it would sell more. As of now she is a mess
Pros: Price, USB 3.0 speed, Aesthetics
Cons: This Enclosure managed to corrupt files on two of my HDD's to the point where one had to be completely reformatted. I thought it was a problem with my drive at first, but when the exact same started happening on a second I threw out the enclosure. You get what you pay for I suppose.READ FULL REVIEW
