CHENMING CMUI-P-601AEB-0 Black 1.0mm SECC Server Computer Case
CHENMING CMUI-P-601AEB-0 Black 1.0mm SECC Server Computer Case

Pros: cheap, e-atx expandability, no psu, massive airflow, roomy interior, imposing and bold aesthetic makes a statement

Cons: kinda big and ugly, stock fan, no intake filter, optical drive retention,

Overall Review: this is a big and heavy case that, for me is an idication of quality. I bought 4 of these to house systems that make up my renderfarm of dual 1.6lv D1 Xeons on Asus PC-DL's that are overclocked to 3.2 and this case is working great. First thing I did was replace the stock exhaust fan with a soft-mounted Panaflo FBA12G12U (114cfm) and 2-80mm fans zip-tied to the mesh on the removeable side panel of the case for additional intake that blows directly at the processors. This worked out better than I had planned as all systems are running cool and bone stable. I am expanding my farm by at least 3 more dual xeon systems and will be buying more of these cases in the future... a total of 7-8 of these cases stacked up is pretty awesome : ) cheers

this stuff is great

Pros: cheap(ish), stable, overclockable, rendering 100% cpu useage for days on this stuff

Cons: none ~ should've gone with 2x1gb sticks

Overall Review: I bought 4 sets of this ram to use in overclocked Asus PC-DL systems with 1.6lv D1 Xeons and am thoroughly impressed. This RAM allowed me to get all machines clocked to 3.2ghz (200fsbx16multi) and save a ton of money instead of buying stock Xeon dempsey systems @ 3.2 wich would end up being a lot of $$$$ I'm purchasing 4 more sets right now to give me 2gb/machine!
