This review is from: Cooler Master Extreme Power Plus - 500W Power Supply
Pros: It didn't blow out the motherboard BIOS or components.
Cons: Everything else.
Other Thoughts: Don't be fooled by the wrapped cables on this PSU, it is cheap junk made in China. The fan began ticking months ago, and recently failed completely. I thought the ticking was from a case fan which is not critical so I let it go a while. Thank goodness my motherboard has a heat alarm so I became aware before it was too late. I am within the 2 year warranty but phone calls to the company offices in CA lead only to voicemail and nobody calls you back. Email to the corresponding address also goes unanswered. Avoid this brand and go with Antec or OCZ. You can't afford to take chances with the PSU.READ FULL REVIEW
This review is from: Foxconn G31AX-K LGA 775 Intel G31 ATX Intel Motherboard
Pros: 5 PCI slots, socket 775, great manual, low price.
Cons: On-board sound needed a driver update to function
Other Thoughts: I needed a motherboard with at least 4 PCI slots so I wouldn't have to send some great legacy hardware to the landfill. I also had a nearly new 3Ghtz P4 socket 775 CPU to recycle. This was the only motherboard I could find that fit my needs. Now I am wondering how I will find another with so many PCI slots when needed.
I have had this almost a year. My computer runs great.
