Pros: The 4-port SATA power cable is fantastic. Each of the connectors reaches a drive in my Lian Li A76 case and there's very little cable between the connectors. If they were available for purchase this would be a 5-egg review.

Cons: Somebody forgot to tell Seasonic that this is a modular power supply and it's going to be knocked for it's quality & selection of cables. I ordered some additional cables from a vendor they recommended and the cables bear no resemblance to the cables that come with the PSU. The cables that come with the PSU are black and are not sleeved. The new ones were colored to match their voltage output and were sleeved.

If you care about aesthetics and plan to use a lot of SATA drives you might be better off trying to build your own cables (18AWG).

3 out of 5 eggs The Little Things 03/01/2013

This review is from: LIAN LI PC-A76 Black Aluminum ATX Full Tower Computer Case

Pros: HDD cage. It's the most you can get without going rackmount.

Cons: Fans. They aren't as quiet as I'd hoped and the connectors for the motherboard headers are an absolute joke. This is a massive case and they provide you with fans that could not possible reach far enough to plug into anything.

Lian-Li Quality Assurance Dept. - My case came with one of the brackets that are meant to support an SSD only secured in three spots. A rivet was placed in the fourth hole, but never passed through the hole for the bracket. Instead the bracket rested on top of the rivet which caused the one corner to lift slightly. When I opened the case this was the very first thing I noticed. It doesn't seem like a huge deal until you realize that the inside of the case is painted when all of the parts are assembled. After drilling out & replacing the rivet, part of the cage was exposed that wasn't when it was painted.

In summary, I had to buy the case, extensions for the fans, and a rivet gun & rivets to fix the cage. The case is better than three eggs, but the annoyances ruined the experience for me.

Pros: VT-d support

Cons: ASM1062 controller is awful. The A1,A2,A3,A4 ports use a pair of ASM1062 controllers. I had a difficult time trying to get it to pick up an attached drive on A4. Ultimately I'll be picking up some new hardware to support my ZFS setup.
