Fractal Design Define Mini Black Silent MATX Mini Tower Computer Case

5 out of 5 eggs Friggin Sweet Case 01/29/2014

This review is from: Fractal Design Define Mini Black Silent MATX Mini Tower Computer Case

Pros: This case is hands down the best mid tower case I've ever owned. I've got my current gaming rig in it cooled with noctua fans. Using a decibel meter, this case was quieter than a friend's case which is using water cooling

The wire management in this case is top notch, the drive trays are of solid metal design that have holes to attach a SSD, and the quick locks in the 5.25 bays really keep a solid grasp on on the bluray drive.

The inside of the case fit a 770 GTX without any issues, and if there were the middle drive tray is removeable to allow for larger videocards.

Cons: Some might be surprised by the size of this case. It's very close to the same length as a full sized tower, but it is much shorter. Over all, it still saves space while not making system building a pain.

One other thing i noticed, the case doesn't do a good job dampening mechanical hard drive vibration. It's not a deal breaker by any means. It just took me a while to figure out what that very light vibration was on my desk!

Other Thoughts: I highly reccomend this case for a gamer that wants a quiet case that will cut back a bit on space. It's not a shuttle case by any means, but it will still cut back on space usage.

Noctua Anti-Stall Knobs Design,SSO2 Bearing 120mm, PWM Case Cooling Fan NF-S12A

Pros: Love these fans. They move a lot of air, and are whisper quiet. I use four for case air flow, and I use two on a thermaltake CPU cooler. Using a decibel meter on my new rig (using the Fractal silent mid tower) my air cooled machine was quieter than a friend's liquid cooled machine.

Cons: Price? I guess? Don't let that stop you. These are quality fans!
I guess the colors could be considered a detriment? I never got into windowed cases, so I'm not a good judge.

SUPERMICRO X9SRI-F ATX Server Motherboard LGA 2011 DDR3 1600

2 out of 5 eggs Customer Support?? 11/09/2012

This review is from: SUPERMICRO X9SRI-F ATX Server Motherboard LGA 2011 DDR3 1600

Pros: The hardware was great while it worked.

Cons: While configuring Xen on the server, it rebooted on its own. When it came back the server was only registering 8 gigs of memory. Tested the memory in another machine, no problems. Tried all the different slots on the motherboard and only two were working. Sent to Supermicro for RMA. They've had it for over a week, and it's still 'in process' with no ETA! What kind of customer support is that?
