Fractal Design Define Mini Black Micro ATX Silent PC Computer Case w/ USB 3.0 support and 2 x 120mm Fractal Design Silent Fans
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 week to 1 month

Pros: 1. Clean, solid, and well-built.
2. The sound dampening material is made very well that is effective.
3. The stock fans are quiet, as well as push and pull a fair amount of cool air through.

I have my motherboard set to slowest fan speeds for the chassis and CPU fan, and everything runs at 30c. It will almost never run at load, since I'm running this for my FreeNAS file server. I'm happy with the purchase, and I would recommend it again.

Cons: None

Other Thoughts: Rig:

Intel BOXDH67BLB3 LGA 1155 Intel H67 HDMI SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 Micro ATX Intel Motherboard
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 week to 1 month

Pros: 1. Full of features
2. Boot on the first try
3. Layout is very easy to find the connectors/pins for the front panel

Cons: 1. Unable to adjust the voltage of the memory.

This was the main reason why I had to return my motherboard. I opted for low voltage RAM (GSkill Sniper 1.25v), and even though the motherboard lists that it can do 1.20 - 1.90v on their website, it didn't allow me to manually adjust it. Other than this, I would have kept the motherboard.

I had to dock an egg for it because it had me frustrated that Intel's website (not NewEgg's fault) would say that you can adjust memory voltage but not actually let you do it. I spent quite some time scratching my head, making sure the BIOS was the correct version and everything. After doing some googling, I realized it's not capable of actually adjusting the voltage to the 1.25v that I was trying to do for my low power RAM.

Intel 330 Series Maple Crest SSDSC2CT120A3K5 2.5
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 month to 1 year

Pros: Laptop hard drive died, and I decided to pop one of these in to replace it. It pretty much breathes new life into a year old laptop. Boot times have reduced from ~1 minute to ~12 sec to the desktop.

Cons: None
