CORSAIR CXM series CX430M 430W ATX12V v2.3 80 PLUS BRONZE Certified Modular Active PFC Power Supply
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 day to 1 week

Pros: Semi Modular, Cable length, Power vs Price and still Bronze certified. stable.

Cons: On the sata cables the ends are too close together Had to use both Sata cables when I should have had to use only one. This is a major flaw and thus 2 eggs off.

Other Thoughts: Bought this supply due to the size(didn't need to power graphics cards), semi modular and price. The unit is good looking and runs stable providing more than enough power for the build it is in. However, it has one flaw that really brings its overall rating down and that is on the modular SATA cables the ends are too closely spaced thus preventing their use for more than one device on each cable. Even if I had been able to mount the hard drive right above or below the optical drive the cable ends still would not have reached and therefore I had to use and route one more cable than I should have almost defeating the reason for a modular supply in the first place, Other than this the cables have good overall length and are not too stiff and can be routed fairly easily. I really like the power supply but the cable issue really is a negative and almost a deal breaker.

GELID Solutions CC-Shero-01-A 120mm Hydro CPU Cooler

4 out of 5 eggs Nice and cool 03/14/2014

This review is from: GELID Solutions CC-Shero-01-A 120mm Hydro CPU Cooler

Pros: Can be mounted in any direction depending on your MB layout. Low profile yet still has 120mm fan, memory with low profile heat spreaders fit under the cooler with room to spare, reasonable cost, very good workmanship.

Cons: Fan on my unit is a bit noisy so will have to replace with a low profile noctua as my cougar was too tall.

Other Thoughts: While I have had better luck than most people who do reviews seem to have with the OEM AMD cooler I decided to look for an aftermarket cooler that would deliver more cooling power and still fit in a very small ITX case. I found this cooler and though I was worried it would be too tall and wide I ordered it and I am very glad I did. It is well made and due to the way the included AMD mount works it fit my Gigabyte ITX MB perfectly with plenty of clearance for the ram(low profile) and northbridge heatsink. the fan is secure but does make a slight rattling noise at any speed so I will need to replace. At first I was worried as the fan for the power supply exhausts directly into the CPU cooler fan and the first two days I couldn't get it cooler than 41C and most of the time it was 46C but after burning in the OCZ Ultra Silver thermal compound it is now averaging 37C on the APU(A10 6800K richland) under moderate loads. Should be able to keep it in the mid 40's under heavy loads so that is a win in my book.

Team Vulcan 8GB (2 x 4GB) 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM DDR3 2133 (PC3 17000) Desktop Memory Model TLYD38G2133HC10QDC01
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 day to 1 week

Pros: They worked, they're fast and they look good. what more can you say.

Cons: Nada

Other Thoughts: This was my 1st time buying TEAM memory and so far so good. The sticks look well made and the heat spreaders are low profile and still look sharp. They fit perfectly under the Gelid Slimhero 120mm cooler on my A10 6800K APU and are stable at the rated 2133 speed. Not much more I can say.
