CORSAIR CXM series CX600M 600W ATX12V v2.3 SLI Ready CrossFire Ready 80 PLUS BRONZE Certified Modular Active PFC Power Supply
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 week to 1 month

Pros: It's better than I expected because the groups of cables are thin and linear as opposed to being bunched up in tubes. This made cable management much easier, as a new graphics card made the case pretty tight. It being a modular power supply helps a lot as well.
Has plenty of power for pretty much any setup.

Cons: Doesn't sing me lullabies.

Other Thoughts: Comes with zip ties, which I used to compact the cables into the bottom of the case, giving more breathing room to the graphics card.

GIGABYTE GV-R929WF3-4GD Radeon R9 290 4GB 512-Bit GDDR5 PCI Express 3.0 HDCP Ready Video Card
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 week to 1 month

Pros: Was able to push Far Cry 3 to max settings at 60 frames per second. Worked as expected... after one silly little issue. (See other thoughts)
Also runs quiet enough to be easily tolerable.

Cons: It's a Hawaii GPU, so even though there's this big, 3 fan cooler on it, it still becomes hot to the touch during games. Never got a temperature reading though.

Other Thoughts: When I first plugged this thing in and ran Far Cry 3 to test it, it got only 5 minutes in before I heard a loud POP in the case, and the computer turned off. At first I thought we got a bad graphics card, but it turns out that the OEM power supply we had in there (which was rated for 700 Watts) blew out under the demand of the R9 290. After some troubleshooting, we got a new 600W, and everything worked perfectly. No fault of the GPU, so I'm still giving it 5 eggs.

It's also quite long and barely fit in the case, not a negative, but be sure you have enough room.

Symantec Norton 360 2014 Academic - 3 PCs Download

5 out of 5 eggs Norton is good now 02/09/2014

This review is from: Symantec Norton 360 2014 Academic - 3 PCs Download

Pros: *Stays out of my way
*gives reports of what it's done
*knows when the computer is idle, and does things during that time
*Doesn't eat a lot of resources

Cons: The only complaint I have is the UI. It's a bit hard to figure out where simple things are like the scan history, but this becomes irrelevant after using it for a little while.

Other Thoughts: Norton used to be absolutely terrible. USED TO BE. They've got good software now that doesn't get in the way, and with the 3PC deals, the pricing isn't half bad either. They're always at or near the top of the charts (I've done some digging) and I feel I can trust them.

I had Avast a little while ago, and I thought my computer had a virus I couldn't handle. I called them, and they said it was a virus. They then tried charging me $200!! I already had the software and everything! The best part is that it wasn't even a virus. I found the next day that it was a Windows Vista glitch, so the guy was either lying or incompetent. Either way, I can't trust Avast anymore, and Norton is doing just fine so far.
