  • Excerpt: Системный блок находится в 30 см от уха и блок питания хорошо слышен через корпус.
  • Pros: Модульный, комплектация, качество сборки.
  • Cons: Слишком шумный для построения малошумной системы

  • Excerpt: Вообщем доволен блок хороший тянет такую систему Q9300. ZOTAC 250 - 1 гиг , 4G OCZ оперативки, 500 G жесткий.
  • Pros: Тихий, качественная сборка , модульные кабеля.
  • Cons: Нет. Пожелание можно было сделать модульные кабеля с двумя питаниями sata и один просто питание. Для еще большей мобильности.
