Pros: Excellent modular cable setup
Cons: Absolutely terrible fan - loud at idle and even louder at load
Other Thoughts: As another review(s) stated below, the fan on this thing is terrible! It was a big disappointment, as I had the computer all assembled and tidied up, with cable ties, etc., only to discover that the computer was unusable due to the fan noise! I could hear it across the house, in a separate room. It was loud at idle, then got even louder under load. I initially was confused what the source of the noise was, thinking it was the two GTX 780s or case fans, but low-and-behold it was this seasonic 750W PSU. The PSU was bottom mounted in a NZXT case, with plenty of gap between floor and PSU fan intake.
It was a shame, as I was really happy and impressed with the cabling. I had just what I needed, with room for growth. I will say that this was one of the best modular PSUs I have dealt with, in terms of cable selection, length, options, etc. Hopefully the RMA replacement or repaired unit works out, as it was a joy to work with the setup.
Oh, and regarding the RMA and tech-support. You just get an answering machine all day for their tech support, asking to send an email. I submit an RMA, and the approve it right away. So I am sending it back, though I would have like to discuss it with an engineer first. Oh well.
This review is from: ZALMAN CNPS10X OPTIMA 120mm FSB (Fluid Shield Bearing) Shark's Fin Blade CPU Cooler
Pros: Have used before, and is a good performer for the price
Cons: Poor quality control! The supplied accessories are not compatible with themselves, lol!
Other Thoughts: I have used this CPU cooler in the past, and have been happy with it's price / performance. It is relatively easy to install for an Intel 1150 Socket. I decided to purchase another one, and low-and-behold, the supplied mounting accessories to not work with each other! The diameter of the threads on the nuts used on the backplate are too narrow for the supplied Stand-Off bolts! As a result, could not mount or use the cooler. I am guessing the supplied stand-off bolts were incorrect, as the diameter of the threads are too large. Now to hassle with RMA, and having to rush out and pay too much for another CPU cooler.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: Great product! Excellent case
Cons: Be patient, *very* patient, when it comes to the rebate!
Other Thoughts: First off, great case and product. I have built many systems with the 400r and 500r, and have been quite happy. My knock is on the company and/or rebate house, as they violate their terms and conditions on when you will get your rebate paid! Purchased this case as part of Newegg Black Friday sales, and no rebate check as of 3/4/14! Rebate form stated 8-10 weeks from submission date. Well, we are in March of the next year, and no check mailed. Shame on you Corsair!READ FULL REVIEW
