Pros: Heavy (quality components) compared to standard ps , fully modular with no loss shown, Lowers power consumption.
Cons: only comes with two Pcie cables that split to 4, it works but I like to see separate cables but does not affect performance
Other Thoughts: voltages read under load.
3.3 volt rail=3.2v
both positive and negative
The advantages of Gold power supplies are two fold one being that they flat out are more power efficient as compared to their Bronze counterparts and as comparison the same system at exact same load.
Bronze 750w used 644 watts per hour over a 2 hour period and an Bronze 850w used 642 watts
This Gold 750w used 598 watts
$avings- if your unit runs full time like mine do 24/7 365 you save over $50 in most places on electricity per year so for the additional costs it pays for itself.
The second benefit of Gold ps's is that when overclocking as I did with all of mine you end up with better voltage stabilization and that ends up with a more stable overclock and with good voltages your components run cooler because they do not have to stress for the volts and burn amps because if any electrical item has to fight for volts it causes a high amp burn and amps turn into watts and additional amps turn into heat.
This Corsair Power supply actually allowed me to gain an extra .1 ghz at same voltage with no additional heat over the other Gold ps I tested.
Silent mode? Well I had to test that on a moderate office pc and what I found is this. Yes if you run lower demands like my book work pc (even overclocked) the fan slows or actually turns off and on as needed making that pc even more quiet.
Very nice power supply and I will be purchasing more of this line as needed.
This review is from: Polaroid X 4403/S 0JB Men's Polarized Aviator Sunglasses
Pros: clean "Glass' clean image.
Other Thoughts: It's been a long time since I had a pair of nice sunglasses where the lens was clean w/o distortion and a perfect view and these are it.
Very nice clean image.
This review is from: TRENDnet TEW-817DTR AC750 Wireless Travel Router
Pros: Working great in Spain and Italy
Other Thoughts: I said I would give an update so I am following through, The Travel Router is working and has been doing it's job in Spain and Italy so far without a glitch providing a secure place to work and has caught the eye of a few people. This thing is great as you don't have to lag through the normal free wifi waiting for pages to load as you are using the RJ45 connector and creating your own wifi with good data flow. Sadly some hotels do not have hard wire and just offer free nightmare wifiREAD FULL REVIEW
