Habey EMC-800B Black Heavy duty 3mm aluminum Server Chassis with 12V DC Power Supply 60W
  • neweggOwned For: 1 day to 1 week

Pros: Case looks nice, solidly built. Pretty small for an ITX case.

Cons: Not a lot of ventilation in the case, few places to add fans. No front USB ports. Blue led on the power button is bright and annoying (although that is every case, it seems).

Other Thoughts: If you're using a Sandybridge mobo, there actually is enough space (contrary to another review here), although it is tight.

I'm using the Intel DH67CF and a i3-2100T, along with a single 3.5" drive. If you don't install a CD drive, you can fit the 3.5" drive without any problem, but leaves less space than desired.

Alternatively, you can fit a slim DVD drive in the bay with a 2'.5" drive underneath, although that is very tight. When I tested it out, it barely fit.

Installing a pico power supply is great, but blocks the fan location on the drive tray. I solved this problem by rotating the drive tray since I didn't install an optical drive.

My idle temps are around 29-34 with one 50mm fan for intake, and all seems good. Wish it was a little better ventilated, though - would probably go with a slightly bulkier case for that reason next time.

G.SKILL PI Black 4GB (2 x 2GB) 240-Pin DDR2 SDRAM DDR2 800 (PC2 6400) Dual Channel Kit Desktop Memory Model F2-6400CL4D-4GBPI-B
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: 1 week to 1 month

Pros: Fast, runs cool.

Cons: The funky heat spreader on these things is pretty tall. It actually blocks part of the fan for my CPU by a few millimeters.

Also, I had to manually set the timings to get the rated speed.

Other Thoughts: Make sure you check the height of the ram before buying.

Western Digital Black WD1001FALS 1TB 7200 RPM 32MB Cache SATA 3.0Gb/s 3.5
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: 1 day to 1 week

Pros: Fast, and pretty quiet

Cons: Can run a little warm

Other Thoughts: It's a nice, fast drive. My only complaint is that it didn't come with any software to transfer data or clone hard drives. If you have some techincal knowledge, it's not hard to find that stuff online.
