ZALMAN PROFESSIONAL GS-1000-BK Black Computer Case Aluminum / 1.0mm SECC Steel Full Tower With Hot Swap Bays & PSU Roller Rails
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: 1 month to 1 year

Pros: 1. Beautiful clean looking case.
2. Huge with plenty of working space.
3. Good cable management.
4. Front loading drives (bottom three are hot swappable).
5. Good air flow design.
6. Low mounted PSU.
7. Nice blue LED power light.

Cons: Side panels are a little flimsy but it's not a big deal. Helps keep the weight down I guess since this thing is heavy.

4 out of 5 eggs Good Motherboard 05/11/2010

This review is from: ASUS P6T SE LGA 1366 Intel X58 ATX Intel Motherboard

Pros: 1. Good reliable board that's been working fine for 11 months.
2. Company keeps up with BIOS updates.

Cons: Integrated RAID controller isn't that reliable for RAID 5 and speed is worse than single disk. I haven't tried RAID 0 yet though. If you're planning to use this board for RAID 5 get a good dedicated RAID controller.

Other Thoughts: I plan to overclock with this motherboard when I get a chance to upgrade the cooler on the CPU.

Western Digital Black WD5001AALS 500GB 7200 RPM 32MB Cache SATA 3.0Gb/s 3.5
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: 1 month to 1 year

Pros: Fast and quiet.

Cons: I bought 3 of these drives to run RAID 5 but one of the drives died within a month so I had it RMA from WD's website. The RMA process was zero hassle and they actually sent me a larger 640 GB replacement. =)

Other Thoughts: I'm not doing RAID 5 on my machine anymore since the onboard RAID controller is unreliable and doesn't make a difference in terms of speed. I went back to single disk but may try RAID 0 and use the 3rd disk as a backup or better yet get a SSD drive.
