SeaSonic SS-750KM3 750W ATX12V V2.3 / EPS 12V V2.91 SLI Ready 80 PLUS GOLD Certified Full Modular Active PFC Power Supply New 4th Gen CPU Certified Haswell Ready

Pros: I've read a lot of reviews on power supplies and from what I gather, Seasonic is the company to go to for reliability in power supplies. I've had Corsair & Antec power supplies in the past, but figured I'd give Seasonic a chance after reading all the glowing reviews regarding their high quality manufacturing standards. So far, this unit seems to continue the trend. Keep up the good work!

Cons: None - Some people prefer the "old-school" style wrapped round cables as opposed to the newer flat/ribbon design. I personally think it works well.

Other Thoughts: If you can get a good price, definitely give them a shot!

Pros: Great looking heat-sink. Corsair is known for their reliability and stylish-designs. No complaints here. Newegg had the best price online at the time, so I picked up a set. Great color options to boot, if you're into matching your motherboard color-scheme!

Cons: None

Other Thoughts: How much wood could a woodchuck chuck, if a woodchuck could chuck wood?

Pros: Great drive & super quick! In Windows 7 though, my "Window's Benchmark" is only 5.9. I think the max is 7.9, but I'm guessing that's reserved for the top end SSD drives (which makes sense). Still, this is a solid and reliable performer for those who are looking for better than average reliability.

Cons: It's quick, comes with a 5 year warranty, and isn't as expensive as some of the newer SSD drives.

Other Thoughts: It's a little noisy, but not bad. It's the loudest drive I've ever had though. Just some food for thought if you're going for a silent build.
