This review is from: Rexus PST-3 Digital Power Supply Tester with LCD
Pros: Easy to use and read voltages.
Cons: The +12.5V2 shows as 'LL' on one of my supplies. I thought it might be bad, so I tested it against a good supply in a running machine, and it also indicates the same 'LL'. As it turns out, it seems all my PSUs on all my computers indicate 'LL'. I question the accuracy of this tester.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: I've heard the stories that they fail. I believe it happened to people. I'm not saying it can't happen to me. But so far, so good -- never had a WDC drive fail on me and I've been building since 1995 and always bought WDC. I owned this one for 4 years and 4 months exactly, and so far, still ticking without a hitch. If it dies tomorrow, I would be very embarassed about giving it 5 eggs, but it seems to be on par with the good WDC quality I have always witnessed.
For desktop computing and gaming, access time seems plenty fine. Even with a lot of disk operations (I'm talking about EXTREME loads here) from many programs at once it doesn't take too long to clear up.
Other Thoughts: I recently purchased 3x of the similar WD5000AAKX from NewEgg which for the most part appears very similar to this one. As far as I know, the only difference is its a SATA 6.0Gb/s instead of a 3. I hope I have a positive experience with those as well. Never know about a drive though until its been used :)READ FULL REVIEW
This review is from: Antec Signature SG-850 850W Continuous Power ATX12V / EPS12V SLI Certified CrossFire Ready 80 PLUS BRONZE Certified Modular Active PFC "compatible with Core i7/Core i5" Power Supply
Pros: Beautiful case with a cool blue LED glow to relax you along with those nights of gaming. The case fans keep the temperature well regulated and run super quiet! I love this case!
It REALLY is quiet. Its the most quiet I've ever owned.
Cons: The exterior perforated portions on the front can get very dusty. However, this is an auspicious place to collect dust due to the ease it can be cleaned on this particular case.READ FULL REVIEW
