Heck YEAH!

WD WD RE4 WD1003FBYX-FR 1TB 7200 RPM 64MB Cache SATA 3.0Gb/s 3.5" Internal Hard Drive
WD WD RE4 WD1003FBYX-FR 1TB 7200 RPM 64MB Cache SATA 3.0Gb/s 3.5" Internal Hard Drive

Pros: Ok... Here's the low-down. Usually I expect around 10% failures with new equipment, it's just part of the computer industry. So I ordered 6 of these drives and was expecting 1-2 to be failures. 1 was DOA, another 1 was unstable and wouldn't stay up in the RAID array. Newegg RMA new drives, and the new ones are running fine for the past couple of days.

Cons: 2 were bad (out of 6), which is what I was expecting... RMA'ed drvies look good.

Overall Review: I'll update the posting if I have any additional issues. But the RAID card health status looks VERY promising that I got good drives on the MEGA-cheap! :D Extremely happy!

AMAZING COOLER

ZALMAN CNPS12X 120mm Long Life Bearing High Performance Triple Fan CPU Cooler
ZALMAN CNPS12X 120mm Long Life Bearing High Performance Triple Fan CPU Cooler

Pros: A.) My CPU is the coolest sensor in my system (27 C idle), all other sensors (SABBERTOOTH X79) are in the 30s. Never thought that would happen... B.) Actually fits into a 4U Server case (rackmount for audio/video production, it's in my livingroom not a server closet)

Cons: The way it shifts over to the side has it almost touching the back of the video card (I mean by like 5mm). Plus the shift doesn't seem to be for any reason (at least not on this board)

Overall Review: I was about to get the D-14, but after looking at stamping holes in my case lid to make it fit I saw this cooler. Got it and love it.... Plus it looks cool (but my case tucks away the visual awesomeness)...

Good fan

Rexus NMB-MAT (Panaflo) 80mm Case Fan
Rexus NMB-MAT (Panaflo) 80mm Case Fan

Pros: Quiet (as far as I'm concerned), 3 in my case now (1 intake, 2 exhaust). Push a decent amount of air for a consumer desktop case fan (replaced server-grade NiDecs, which kicked-a, but sounded like a airplane taking off)

Cons: Would like to see a 38mm deep version to push more air

Overall Review: Good upgrade fan if you're looking to keep a quiet case

Amazing

CHENBRO RM41300-F Black & Silver 1.2 mm SGCC 4U Rackmount Open-Bay Chassis 3 External 5.25" Drive Bays
CHENBRO RM41300-F Black & Silver 1.2 mm SGCC 4U Rackmount Open-Bay Chassis 3 External 5.25" Drive Bays

Pros: Amazing Case! Can't believe NewEgg deactivated these. I LOVE this case. Extremely well built and thought out. Imagine Apple building a PC rackmount case.

Cons: There are a lot of small screws for everything. But they even give you all the screws in separate bags with tags that let you know what it's for. Awesome. (Guess it's not a con)

Overall Review: NEWEGG!!!! BRING THESE BACK!!!!!
