Mushkin Enhanced Atlas Series 120GB Mini-SATA (mSATA) MLC Internal Solid State Drive (SSD) MKNSSDAT120GB-DX
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: 1 month to 1 year

Pros: More space than what I had. Scalable performance.

Other Thoughts: Bought this to replace the 32 gb liteon that came with my mobo. Worthy Upgrade. Haven't tested full-speed.

SILVERSTONE RAVEN Series RV03B-WA Matte Black with Gray Trimming, Steel / Plastic ATX Full Tower Computer Case
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: 1 month to 1 year

Pros: Spacious. No critical limit with your cooling/cabling/drive placement/options. The work space behind the mobo chassis for cable management and HDD placement is good.
Not at all like the RV01 (wasted dead space, cable management is horrible)..
Heatstacked 90 degree configuration is great. The location and of the PSU is actually perfect. I was skeptical for many reasons - but I can't imagine returning to classic chassis orientation (another improvement over RV01).

Great value at $150.

Cons: A couple of 24" straight-contact sata cables would have been nice. A set or three of coarse thread fan mount screws (black) would have helped too.

It's an unconventional design and intended for super efficient cooling - charge another 10 bucks on an already fair price for the cables and screws for auxilliary fans. I'm sure most would appreciate it.

My Corsair H100 cooler limits me to only 1 optical drive, as the ONLY place to put the cooler is on the back of the front bezel drive expansion bays. Kept the bluray burner and sacrificed the bluray ripper to make it fit, but it's not critical.

Other Thoughts: Other reviewers mentioned theirs being shipped with minor damage or defect. Recieved mine in mint condition, had it a month and everything is as sturdy as day 1.
A 120 MM fan behind the Mobo does help.
**TIP** If you plan to use the H100 cooler, install both fans into the included fan brackets (blowing front to back), and only screw ONE fan (bottom) THROUGH the bracket to the radiator (radiator will be between the fans and mobo). The other fan will be held in place by its bracket. This is due to the holes of the brackets not lining up with the radiator. Hoses down performs better than hoses up. Try to get a feel for your cabling strategy before mounting, and definitely before seating the pump to the CPU.
