SILVERSTONE ST60F 600W ATX 12V 2.01 / EPS 12V SLI Ready Active PFC Power Supply
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: more than 1 year

Pros: - Compact design
- Black satin finish
- Modular cables
- Reasonable performance
- Decent internals.
- Fan is a standard 120mm unit that's easy to replace (either splice wires or use a 3 pin to 2 pin adapter).

Cons: Original died 6 months after purchase.
Replacement's fan died twice.

Other Thoughts: This is a followup review from my original 2-star review back in 2008. I've had unit #2 for 6 years and its still going. In light of the second unit's long life and reliable performance (cooling fan notwithstanding), I felt it deserved a better rating.

Rosewill RFA-80-BL - 80mm Computer Case Cooling Fan with LP4 Adapter - Transparent Frame & 4 Blue LED Lights, Sleeve Bearing, Silent
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 day to 1 week

Pros: I have an older Raidmax Sagitta case. Airflow is not the best but the case is still in good shape and I've always liked the way it looks. To compensate for the not so great airflow and I need powerful fans to keep the much newer components cool.

To that end my exhaust fan is a Scythe DFS123812H-3000 which puts out an awesome 133.60CFM. However its plain black so the only light in the case comes from the 80mm side exhaust fan mounted on the window over the CPU. The original fan still works fine, which is impressive. However only one LED works anymore and its quite dim.

Enter this Rosewill fan. It's exactly what i wanted: good airflow for its size, blue LEDs, acceptable noise level, and inexpensive. The LEDs are actually very bright, which is awesome since my case is well lit again, and that's exactly what I was going for. I also appreciate that the wires are braided. That's a really nice touch, for so little money. It's one of those pleasant cases of an item being inexpensive, not cheap.

For $3.49 (and free shipping!) how can you go wrong?

Cons: None

Diablotek PHD Series - 2nd Generation PHD650 650W ATX12V v2.2 SLI Ready CrossFire Ready Power Supply
  • Verified Owner

1 out of 5 eggs Bought 2, Both Died, Support is Nonexistant 12/09/2012

This review is from: Diablotek PHD Series - 2nd Generation PHD650 650W ATX12V v2.2 SLI Ready CrossFire Ready Power Supply

Pros: Bought two of these based one the attractive price and positive reviews.

Good value with high output for the money, they LOOKED like quality products.

Cons: Within a year the first one completely conked out. Contacted Diablotak to RMA it. I got one email and that was all I ever heard from them.

The second one started having voltage problems after about 2 years. Again, I tried contacting the company and didn'tg et so much as an email from them. At the time they had no service number to reach them.

Other Thoughts: In short, you get what you pay for. Poor quality PSUs and a company that doesn't stand behind them. Shame on me for not buying another Corsair. Live and learn.
