This review is from: LIAN LI Black Aluminum PC-Q09FNB Mini ITX Media Center / HTPC Case
Pros: LIAN LI has updated this case to include a USB 3.0 header INSIDE the case. There is no need to buy a separate adapter like I did. THANKS LIAN LI for this!! Newegg has not updated the description or case pictures for this.
Putting together the entire system was very easy. The snap on top and bottom makes this case very easy to get into. It looks better in person. The photos on here don't do it justice.
I use this case for an HTPC system and it runs at low temps.
Cons: The PSU is noisy. There is no way to adjust it so the only way to solve the problem is to buy a Pico PSU.
The noise is not unbearable and when you watch a TV show or movie you don't hear it, but you can't say it is "silent" and if you want complete silence the PSU will have to be replaced.
There are not many SFX form factor PSUs to choose from... so a Pico PSU is the best option.
Pros: Low voltage equals about 1 to 2watts of savings. Not much, but RAM is cheap these days so why not.
This RAM runs at 1.25v on IVY BRIDGE CPUs. Sandy Bridge or older CPUs may not work without full BIOS/UEFI support for it. If you own, or plan on buying a IVY BRIDGE CPU then you are fine.
It has an XMP Profile for the advertised voltage and CAS settings. My system is stable at these settings.
Cons: None. The RAM works as described.READ FULL REVIEW
