This review is from: OCZ GameXStream OCZ700GXSSLI 700W ATX12V SLI CrossFire Active PFC Power Supply
Pros: My old Antec Neo HE 550W could not handle my bigger build, so i bought this. Now my computer actually starts up and not in safe mode. The process of it starting up is much faster, as well as shutting down.
Cons: Lots of cables. Its hard to place them almost anywhere in my Antec 900. I practically had to cram them in there to get the side on. But oh well it doesnt hurt anything and the only thing I care about is performance, which this baby does very well.
Other Thoughts: - RIG - Antec 900 (5 fans), XFX 680I LT SLI, Q6600@2.4GHZ, GeIL 2GB DDR2 800 @ stock, EVGA 8800GT Superclocked @ factory set speeds, OCZ GameXStream 700W - PERIPHS - iCEMAT 2nd Edition, Razer Deathadder, Audio FX 5+1 Gaming Headphones, Microsoft wireless keyboardREAD FULL REVIEW
This review is from: D-Link WBR-1310 Wireless Router IEEE 802.3/3u, IEEE 802.11b/g
Pros: Ha the price because its a CHEAPO!
Cons: I have never had to many connection drops and overheating issues in my life. WOW so frustrating. I can not play counterstrike or any other games, or even download stuff without the risk of it overheating or having the connection drop. If U look at multiple web pages while downloading I run a high risk of having my connection drop...AGAIN...
Other Thoughts: If you want to look at web pages, and STRICTLY web pages the cheapo router will do the job. But if you want to be able to multitask on the web, download, or play games, or a combination of both...prepare to be FRUSTRATED!READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: Looks great in my Antec 900, mounted on my XFX 680i LT SLI motherboard. While i'm downloading, browsing, and have AIM, Xfire, and Steam open I have core temps around 30-33Cs (91 degrees Fahrenheit), and with nothing running with my antec 900 (5 fans installed) running on full i've recorded temps as low as 27 Cs (80 degrees Fahrenheit). When I play graphically intense games (games maxed out) like Company of Heroes I have temps around 40-42 Cs (107 degrees Fahrenheit) I dont have any of the thermal paste people mentioned but with my extra fans in my case getting rid of heat very fast I still put up temperatures at least as good as CPUs without it. ***(Q6600, no overclock or voltage tweaks)***
Cons: It is kind of odd how the heat sink blows air towards the front of my case. I've seen people with it set up like that so either that is the way it goes or the people I've seen, as well as myself, installed it the wrong way...
Other Thoughts: I don't know If I did the install right...Very odd even the logo on the side is right side up and you would think that would be an indicator of the product facing the right way...even if it is in backwards I have the top two decks of my Antec 900 empty so air just gets blown out the top front and I still manage to pull the average temps without thermal paste with the questionable installation...GREAT product overall for the money and much better than stock intel junk heatsinksREAD FULL REVIEW
