Pros: 1200 watts. Low Price.
Cons: Died after a few months.
Other Thoughts: Sparkle claims a 1 year warranty. Do not believe them. I tried to get a RMA from them for a dead power supply and they denied it. The issue is that the 8 pin power connector to the supply has shorted/ burned out and now the supply does not function. This is not covered under warranty. The power supply almost causes a fire and they don't want to cover it under warranty. Stay way from this horrible company.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: Price was cheap and it has a lot of fans.
Cons: Poor build quality. I got the rosewill rail mounts that are for the server chassis. They are put together with nuts and screws but the instructions don't say where to put in the screws in a obvious way. You have to determine yourself where to put the nuts and screws. Not very stable and trying to assemble this left me with cuts and bruises on my arms. Should not be this difficult and I have years of experience racking HP and Dell servers.
Other Thoughts: The chassis with rails does not fully slide into a standard 4 post rack. It sticks out about 4 inches. I guess if you remove the handles and move the slides more forward then it will sit flush with the rack. But then you will have a hell of a time trying to slide the beast out without the handles and you will also need to drill holes for the rails to mount in the new position. Also will the case has adequate fans they were not keeping my Radeon cards cool. I suppose it was stupid of me to think I could rack my system. Two 7970 Gigabye cards would go over 90C. In my old LanLi case with just two 120mm fans the cards never went over 75C. You would think with the amount of fans this thing has it would keep the cards cool but I was wrong.READ FULL REVIEW
