COUGAR COUGAR-GX1050 1050W ATX12V / EPS12V SLI CrossFire 80 PLUS GOLD Certified Yes, flexible cable management Active PFC Power Supply Haswell ready
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: more than 1 year

Pros: It worked for a year and a half.
5 year limited warranty.
This is a great power supply, if you live in the Germany.

Cons: Then it died, taking a EVGA GTX 670 SC with it. This was supposed to be a 80 plus gold but is more of a 80 minus copper rating.
One of the biggest cons is the RMA. Please read it before buying. You will see that it is a headache and that is up to you to send it back to Germany to get t looked at if they even acknowledge your existence.
Emails left were unanswered.

Other Thoughts: There are better PSU's for the same price out there, that have better warranties (EVGA's 10 year) and a RMA system in the United States were you can actually get someone to answer you and stand by their product.

MSI Z97 MPOWER Max AC LGA 1150 Intel Z97 HDMI SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 ATX Intel Motherboard

4 out of 5 eggs Great MB with some minor Issue 08/12/2014

This review is from: MSI Z97 MPOWER Max AC LGA 1150 Intel Z97 HDMI SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 ATX Intel Motherboard

Pros: The motherboard works and the over-clocking potential is great. I built my liquid cooling system using a Phobya Kit so I could use the MOSFET block that is already installed. Though it is a wonderful motherboard with abundant options the are some issues.

Cons: The first issue is the wifi connector that you have to manually install and can ruin the motherboard if not done slowly. I can never understand why MSI and ASUS do this instead of soldering it to the board, if people buy this board it is for the included wifi. The second issue: I understand the real estate on a MB is low, but placing a 6 pin over the PCI-e slot is hell on cable management. Last: if you have read other post, the updating apps have a problem with not updating Bios, Utilities, Driver,, you get the picture. The issue is, if you try to update everything at once ( which is an opinion) it will look like it is working , then fail. If you update individually then you will not have any issues.
I used a test table to build a system before installing it ( excluding liquid cooling) and this motherboard needed it.

Other Thoughts: Beside the issues this is a nice motherboard with a lot of over-clocking potential, you just need to be a builder with a few systems under the belt before trying this motherboard.

KS Automatic Mechanical Tourbillon Date Day Big Case Sport Wrist Watch Gift
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 day to 1 week

Pros: Used email to contact and Timebear responded ASAP and sent me a new watch which is in great shape. They took care of everything quickly.

Cons: None now

Other Thoughts: Taking back my "will not buy First from Asia', Timebear showed me that I was to quick to judge, (yep I am man enough to admit it) Thank you Timebear for showing me that I can trust Neweggs partners.
