SILVERSTONE Black Aluminum / Steel ML04B Micro ATX Media Center / HTPC Case

4 out of 5 eggs Misleading Description 12/01/2013

This review is from: SILVERSTONE Black Aluminum / Steel ML04B Micro ATX Media Center / HTPC Case

Pros: Good case, very high level of fit & finish. Overall very pleased.

Cons: Advertised drive bay capacity is misleading. The case has, internally 1x3.5", and 1x3.5\2.5" bay, not 2x3.5" & 1x2.5". I had planned on building a HTPC with a 2.5" boot SSD, and 2 3.5" media drives, along with a blu-ray drive. This is still possible, but my boot drive is secured with duct tape.

Patriot Extreme Performance Gaming Series 4GB (2 x 2GB) 240-Pin DDR2 SDRAM DDR2 800 (PC2 6400) Desktop Memory Model PGS24G6400ELK

Pros: Worked great for 6 months.

Cons: Only worked for 6 months. Upgraded primary hard drive to velociraptor, and 5 hours of frustration later I find that memtest86+ is throwing 2k errors\sec.

Other Thoughts: I get to find out how good Patriot's warranty support is.

G.SKILL 4GB (2 x 2GB) 240-Pin DDR2 SDRAM DDR2 1066 (PC2 8500) Dual Channel Kit Desktop Memory Model F2-8500CL5D-4GBPK
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: more than 1 year

Pros: Good Timings. Used to be inexpensive.

Cons: Nothing I can do to get it to 1066 stable on my Biostar TA790GX XE mobo. No amount of voltage or timings adjustment seems to work to get stability. Havent had any BSOD, but prime95 dies after less than 5 minutes every time.
