APEVIA Black / Red SECC Steel / Aluminum X-MASTER-RD/500 ATX Media Center / HTPC Case
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 week to 1 month

Pros: This case is hella cheap. I mean there is not one extra ounce of metal to spare in this thing. With additional rebate, these were ~ $30. Wow. Totally worth it at this price.

Cons: I bought three of these, one red, one blue, and one green. Needs love.

Easy cons: 4Pin cpu power is dated at best. There are adapters available in Newegg. There are missing holes necessary to support the full ATX MB standard.

They all needed some love. 1/3 booted on first try.

There is a secret power switch that is internal to the case (pull off front panel to find) that I would have never knew of if they shipped in the "on" position. Fixed this on two which brought me to 2/3 working.

The last one had a defective power extension cable which brings the power from the back of the case to the "front" hidden panel where it connects to the PSU. I replaced this with a longerish cable that hang jankily out of the back of the case. I would be satisfied if the manufacturer replaced this cable for me.

Other Thoughts: I learned how to test a power supply using a multimeter. I guess that is a skill I never knew I wanted.

ASUS ENGTX560 TI DCII/2DI/1GD5 GeForce GTX 560 Ti (Fermi) 1GB 256-Bit GDDR5 PCI Express 2.0 x16 HDCP Ready SLI Support Video Card
  • Owned For: 1 month to 1 year

Pros: Worked great when I got it.

Cons: I had some BSOD's I assumed to be unrelated, then I entered the matrix. Artifacts everywhere, and the device would stop working all the time, windows would report that it got restarted after a 2 minute hang. Now happens ever 20 minutes or so. Check the NVIDIA forums before buying, everyone is having this problem :(

Other Thoughts: Makes a nice coffee warmer if given the right voltages.

OCZ RevoDrive 3 series RVD3-FHPX4-480G PCI-E 480GB PCI-Express 2.0 x4 MLC Internal Solid State Drive (SSD)
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 week to 1 month

Pros: This card is _fast_. We use it in a high-throughput imaging application to pull live images off of a frame-grabber at over 250 MB per second. It kicks this problems $%#. Not something I can say about any other piece of hardware.

Cons: I started getting BSOD's a couple of weeks in, trying permutations of different active/installed hardware finger the card as the culprit. This manifests as the following waring in Event Viewer: "Reset to device, \Device\RaidPort0, was issued.", followed by a hard BSOD like 5 seconds later.

Second, don't but this card to minimize your boot time, the internal configuration calculus it runs at each boot comfortably takes 30-45 seconds. . .

Other Thoughts: Kinda sucks to pay $1400 for a crashy card . . . :(

We are a startup and these kinda things hurt.
