This review is from: Crucial M4 CT256M4SSD2 2.5" 256GB SATA III MLC Internal Solid State Drive (SSD)
Pros: Fast drive, easy to install. I have one on my 4 year old laptop as the C drive. Brought this old laptop up to useable speed. Enough that I can wait another year or two before upgrading it.
I use another one as a swapfile and major program drive. It is still too small for the maindrive of my big computer, but it is plenty big enough for the pagefile and the two or three programs that I need to be speed up, plus my "working" directory of projects. It also is great for those VM files for VMWare.
Came with most recent firmware already installed.
Cons: The free shipping using DHL is painfully slow. Six days from NJ to MD! UPS ground gets it here in one day. Even USPS would be one maaybe two days. It is almost worth it to pay for shipping or at least see who else has it with better "free" shipping.READ FULL REVIEW
This review is from: Antec High Current Gamer Series HCG-900 900W ATX12V v2.3 / EPS12V v2.91 SLI Certified CrossFire Certified 80 PLUS BRONZE Certified Active PFC Power Supply - Intel Haswell Fully Compatible
Pros: Fits in fine, fan is on the top, which means you have room for cables right up next to the supply case. Solved the problem of cables covering up the air vent that I had in the last build. Quiet and good cable lengths for a mid tower, Plenty of power too
Cons: A little expensive, but you get what you pay for.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: Put this with an i7-3930K and within 5 min had it overclocked to 4.5 GHz and completely stable with 32GB of ram. Easy to setup, well placed connectors. Very fast, I could probably get it to 5 GHz if I really wanted to. I just need a fast machine to do CAD/DSP and it must be stable. Tests as the top single processor box on cpubenchmark.com performance. The reviews are correct, very fast, very stable.
Cons: Expensive, but worth it.READ FULL REVIEW
