Shuttle SZ68R5 Intel Core i7 / i5 / i3 / Pentium (LGA1155) Intel Socket H2(LGA1155) Intel Z68 Intel HD Graphics 2000/3000 integrated in the processor 1 x HDMI Barebone

Pros: Compact sff form factor
500w power supply
Standard ITX form factor
Room for full size video card

Cons: OC capability limited, no undervolt, no cas timing control, better oc controls needed.
Don't like the ODD bay cover button, but it works.
First unit had to be RMA'd.

Other Thoughts: Replacing the ICE cooler with an Asetek 545LC liquid cooler, and doing a bios mod, I am able to run at my 2600k @ 4.6ghz with an R7970 Video card and game like a madman. 6+ months of use, and never a hiccup or an over heat. My mem is 1600 CL8, the shuttle runs it at 1600 CL11 with bios 104. Later bios supports new cpus.

ZEROtherm ZT-570D 92mm Sleeve CPU Cooler
  • neweggOwned For: more than 1 year

5 out of 5 eggs darn good little HSF 12/14/2011

This review is from: ZEROtherm ZT-570D 92mm Sleeve CPU Cooler

Pros: Small enough to fit neatly into my Thermaltake LanBoxLite.
Solid build quality.
Kept my q9400 and now my q9550s cool, even at load it's still dang near silent.

Cons: It's been over a year, but I seem to remember the instructions and the install were a bit of a pain.

Other Thoughts: I thought my build would be fine with a stock intel cooler, and it wasn't bad, but after the build I did not think it was cooling sufficiently, so I swapped this one in. Idle temps are 5c cooler, even at max rpm under 100% load the fan is just a low whir. I had all these temps and stats at the time, but I usually wait until I have something for a year to review it, and then I forget all that stuf, d'oh!
If you need something for a cramped space, you will not be dissapointed.

Rosewill RSV-R4000 - 4U Rackmount Server Case / Chassis - 8 Internal Bays, 4 Included Cooling Fans
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: 1 month to 1 year

Pros: Cheap price. Solid frame. Dual rear 80mm exhaust. 4x Fansx included. Good airflow with front 120mm intakes.

Cons: Cheap design. Cheap fans.
The drive trays are complete trash. Even after I figured them out, after a few swap arounds they just fell apart, which pretty much makes the case unusable for me.
Don't even think about shipping this with hd's mounted.

Other Thoughts: I had the Norco RPC-450 before his, almost the exact same case, except the Norco held 10 HDs (5 in each) but at least the drive mounting was more plausible (plastic rails mounted to HDs). So I swapped the bay cages over from the Norco to the Rosewill. So now I am only dissapointed that I didn't just spend 200-300 on a great case, rather than mess with this junk for almost a year. This is for my Windows home server.
