Team Group DARK L3 2.5
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: 1 month to 1 year

Pros: Team Group hasn't done me wrong yet. It's time to give up on Hard Disks for OS partitions. When you're buying an SSD don't get caught up on speed, simply having more than the ~170 IOPS that a HDD offers will make your system feel great.

Cons: I'm not a fan of the art on the drive itself, a holographic sticker.

hec Black 0.7mm Thickness SECC (Japanese Steel Metal) ITX ITX200A Mini ITX Media Center / HTPC Case
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: 1 day to 1 week

Pros: The included PSU isn't as sketchy as other HTPC builds.

The side-fan is quiet and effective.

Easy to build in

- Supports large 3.5" Drives

Cons: There is a misconception that the PSU fan is loud, that is not the case. Because of the width of the case, most people will be using a stock CPU cooler. This is OK, but-- because the fan is so close to the enclosure, the noise is more audible, not louder.

Great fans that will fit this case:

Scythe Kozuti
Noctua NH-L12
CoolerMaster GeminII

Other Thoughts: Don't be afraid of the case, it is well built and effective.

SILVERSTONE Strider Essential series ST60F-ES 600W ATX12V / EPS12V SLI Ready CrossFire Ready 80 PLUS Certified Active PFC Power Supply
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: more than 1 year

Pros: - Plenty of Cables, LONG Cables
- Can't hear it over my system (see Other Thoughts)
- 600 W
- Silverstone
- 80+ Silver Rating

I have owned this for 2 years going strong!

Cons: You won't win any beauty pageants for your cable management here, these things are LONG.

Other Thoughts: My Build from 2011, it is now almost 2014.

Phenom II 965
8 GB DDR3-1333
Radeon Sapphire 6850
Rosewill Challenger
1 TB 6400 RPM HDD
Biostar A770E3
Silverstone Strider

In the time that I have owned this system, power has not been an issue, and I do not see it becoming one.
