Pros: Very neat modular design, very silent, very steady power delivery and voltage fluctuations, its based on the Seasonic MK3 platform also used on the Corsair AX760, it is a very reliable power supply.
Cons: Sometimes, you can hear a slight high pitched whine when the PC is off and its discharging, but nothing to be affraid off, also the cables are a bit hard to handle as they are thick and strong, won't bend easily.
Other Thoughts: This PSU is rock stable, able to power my i7 3770K @ 4.50GHz and my R9 290X reference at 1,050 with no issues or stability problems. Also its hybrid fan functionality comes in handy as if the PC is idling or not using lots of power, it remains off, helping to avoid dust build up and keeping the noise down.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: Ultra fast, power efficient, only consumes about 4.5W during heavy read/writes operation, very consistent performance across all scenarios and makes my computer boot around 5 seconds and that is without the Fast Startup feature of Windows 8.
Cons: TRIM commands are a bit conservative and after several delete files, the performance may dip from the typical 480MB/s to low 300MB/s which isn't bad considering that it is far from being slow, plus OCZ Toolbox doesn't work to trigger manual TRIM.
Other Thoughts: Overall, it is a nice SSD which scored 7.9 on the Windows 8 rating, snappy performance and more consistent than my 840 that I installed on my Asus G74. Overall a happy camper here.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: It is very neat, great cable management, ultra stable voltage readings and has a special switch that allows you to turn off the fan when the PSU is idle and will turn on itself when required. It is a rebranded Seasonic X series MK3 also used on the Corsair AX series, which means that going either 3 won't disappoint you.
Cons: The cables are flat and hard to manage and hide as they don't bend that well, poor documentation (At least it is intuitive to assemble and connect the proper cables).
Other Thoughts: Overall, is a well round product that won't disappoint you. It is able to powerup my i7 2600K @ 4.40GHz watercooled with a modest Antec Khuler 620, 8GB G.Skill 2,133MHz, Sapphire HD 7970GHz oced to 1,125 with a Asus GTX 650 DirectCu for PhysX processing, OCZ Vertex 4 128GB, all stuffed into the NZXT Phantom PHAN-001WT.READ FULL REVIEW
