This review is from: CORSAIR CX series CX430 430W 80 PLUS BRONZE Active PFC ATX12V & EPS12V Power Supply
Pros: For my use case, the power supply is working ok.
Cons: Unfortunately, Corsair denied my rebate submission. They are claiming that they did not receive the UPC barcode from my purchase. Out of probably 15-20 rebates that I've ever submitted, this is the first one I've ever had rejected. I know for a fact that the UPC was included and I also went out of the way to DOUBLE TAPE the envelope (with scotch tape AND overlapping duct tape) to ensure that the envelope arrived intact. As a consumer who follows the rules, I'm pretty mad about this. Don't offer a $20 rebate then deny it because you don't want to pay out.
I don't plan on buying another Corsair product, as I can't trust them to do the right thing and upkeep their end of the bargain. If they can't handle a simple rebate subscription, how would they handle a warranty claim?
Other Thoughts: I will update this review when Corsair contacts me in regards to making this right. Until then, I will not be buying another Corsair product. My next PSU will be an EVGA or Antec.READ FULL REVIEW
This review is from: Rosewill RCX-ZAIO-92 - 92mm Sleeve Bearing CPU Cooler Fan
Pros: - Cooler than stock (my i5-3450 idles around 35C-37C
- Doesn't require a support back plate (so you won't have to remove the motherboard from the case)
- For 1155, installs in similar fashion like the stock heatsink
- Great price (bought mine on sale)
Cons: - Don't expect miracles; it isn't a premium CPU cooler
- Because this fits multiple sockets, you have to be careful that you have the legs/supports in the correct position before attempting to install.
- This cooler is tall...be careful if you have a smaller case
Other Thoughts: I don't overclock and run my system in a mid-tower case. This CPU cooler is the perfect choice for me. It was cheap but keeps everything nice and cool without issue. The temperatures never break 70C under full load, so I'm comfortable with the performance. Overall, this was a great bargain for me.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: Runs stable, no issues with 2 different mother boards, great price
Cons: I don't OC but I'm assuming this wouldn't hold up well to stress, no heat cooler
Other Thoughts: If you're a basic user, this is the stuff you want. No reason to pay any extra for features you won't use. This memory has been great for me with no issues. Would definitely purchase againREAD FULL REVIEW
