WD WD Green WD20EARX 2TB IntelliPower 64MB Cache SATA 6.0Gb/s 3.5
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: 1 day to 1 week

Pros: Factory refurb; better than 3rd party refurb
No bad drives so far out of a lot of 3
Free Shipping

Cons: Refurb
Still too expensive for refurb IMO
Poor warranty even for a refurb

Other Thoughts: They may carry a pathetic warranty and I have only owned the 3 (soon to be 4) drives for about a week but these drives are good. The factory refurb (shipped back to and serviced by WD) actually go through more thorough testing than new drives. I wouldn't doubt if these drives last a couple years. All spun up with no problems and have been in operation 24/7 for ~week in a ZFS RAID 10. The drive I lost, which prompted a 4th purchase of this drive, was actually one of my original 2TB drives (not refurb)

I say if your running a RAID and need multiple drives going refurb could vet you a free drive vs. going new.

Noctua NF-P12-1300 120mm Case Fans

5 out of 5 eggs Quiet 03/22/2013

This review is from: Noctua NF-P12-1300 120mm Case Fans

Pros: Quiet

Cons: Not PWM but minimal problem with blue resistor adapter. Expensive (but I'd buy more)

Other Thoughts: I bought two of these are a silent PC project... no regrets so far.

Other toughts, can't fault Noctua for this but I did have to drill out the 120mm mounts on the front of my HAF 912 case to use the supplied rubber mounts.

Cooler Master HAF 912 - Mid Tower Computer Case with High Airflow, Supporting up to Six 120mm Fans and USB 3.0
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: 1 day to 1 week

Pros: Good airflow. Doesn't look like a 15 years old computer

Cons: I had to drill out the front 120mm mounts to use Noctua rubber mounts. Backplate covers rattle; I had to add felt to minimize noise

Other Thoughts: It's a good case for the price. It fit a 120mm radiator in the rear fan slot and I was able to cram an SSD, 4 hard disk, and a CDROM into it. On top of that I have a watercooler, three 120mm fans, and a 140mm fan.

Overall, very happy with this case regardless the mods I had to do
