SilenX EFX-09-12 92mm Effizio Quiet Case Fan
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: 1 day to 1 week

5 out of 5 eggs good fan, silent at 12v 02/06/2013

This review is from: SilenX EFX-09-12 92mm Effizio Quiet Case Fan

Pros: It's silent from a distance of 2 feet running at 12v in an exhaust fan configuration. It moves air. Could probably serve as a lone case fan in a low-demand home/office machine. Comes with silicone noise damping mounting thingies. Looks great in my black and white case.

Cons: None so far.

Other Thoughts: Took me a while to figure out the silicone mounting thingies but it was worth every minute, they're great.

WD Blue 500GB Desktop Hard Disk Drive - 7200 RPM SATA 6 Gb/s 16MB Cache 3.5 Inch - WD5000AAKX
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: 1 month to 1 year

Pros: It's a good drive for everyday use. It was packaged correctly and was not dead on arrival.

Cons: Not the fastest drive around but again, it's perfect for what it is.

Other Thoughts: Bare drives on Newegg seem to be hit or miss - my friend ordered one at the same time and his arrived dead and poorly packaged. I wouldn't have ordered this if I hadn't been prepared to return it and wait a few weeks.

Fractal Design Core 1000 Micro ATX Computer Case w/  1 x 120mm fan

4 out of 5 eggs great budget case, quiet, good aesthetics 02/06/2013

This review is from: Fractal Design Core 1000 Micro ATX Computer Case w/ 1 x 120mm fan

Pros: Good aesthetics and very well built for the price. I like the hdd mounting system - maintains good airflow and reduces noise. Comes with an excellent Fractal R2 series 120mm fan that can run silently while still moving enough air for a case intake.

This is an excellent case for a budget quiet pc build.

Cons: Needed a fan controller to get the case fan running silent - at 12V it was actually pretty loud, and the fan requires voltage regulation (no pwm). PSU mounts at the top of the case. Cable routing requires some creativity - no space behind the motherboard etc.

Other Thoughts: Front panel for USB / audio is on the side of the front panel; to your right if you're facing the case. Looks really sharp though.

I had to add an exhaust fan in back for this case to run silent without overheating; including the fan controller mentioned above this added $20 to my build. Not bad, really.

For low-impact computing (i.e. no gaming or multimedia production) this probably wouldn't be necessary.
