Rosewill CAPSTONE-750 750W Continuous @ 50°C, Intel Haswell Ready, 80 PLUS GOLD, ATX12V v2.31 & EPS12V v2.92, SLI/CrossFire Ready, Active PFC Power Supply
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 day to 1 week

Pros: This PSU is the highest quality power supply i have ever held in my hands. It feels incredibly hefty and its quire heavy as well so you know its not cheap. Just looking inside you can see the PCB is super thick. You can tell rosewill went with high quality components for this PSU.

It's dead silent. I literally can't even hear the fan even when i disable all my other fans. And the fan is HUGE! This is the best power supply i've ever owned.

My video card reccomended a 750 watt psu. But since i was a total rebel i was using only a 630 watt for about a month before i upgraded to this. When i upgraded to this my 3Dmark benchmark improved by 8%.. Is that even possible? Awesome!

And its hard to describe but the texture of the finish itself is smooth but rough at the same time. It's hard to explain but it just feels so amazing and superior to all other psu's.

At my job i build hundreds of computers each year and i find that 90% of the time the power supplies that always fail are the ones that are light as a feather. This one is super hefty. I have a good feeling about this PSU.

Cons: Makes kind of an unexplainable noise for a fraction of a second when i power on my computer. It's hard to describe but if i had to describe it i would say something like a power burst? It's definitely odd. I hope its nothing serious.

SAPPHIRE TRI-X OC 100361-2SR Radeon R9 290X 4GB 512-Bit GDDR5 PCI Express 3.0 CrossFireX Support Video Card
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 week to 1 month

Pros: Every single AMD card i've ever owned up until this day has been a sapphire. Starting out with a sapphire 4870, followed by a sapphire 7950, now the sapphire R9 290X and all three still work till this day.

And i knew it would work. Sapphire is the highest quality video card manufacture in existence.

If you work in a computer store and you hold hundreds of video cards every year you would know without question that sapphire cards have the highest build quality of them all.

Sapphire is one of the only manufacture that goes the extra mile and removes the reference brand ELPIDA memory and installs HYNIX brand memory which has a much higher overclock ceiling and a significantly lower defection rate.

While others choose to be mindlessly bias towards which manufactures are good and which are "junk".. I actually do my research on which manufacture uses the highest quality components, transistors, capacitors, PCB, memory, Power units.. And without question sapphire uses the highest quality builds of any manufacture.

And sapphire is one of the only video card brands that actually sit down and innovate ways to improve upon reference designs. Sapphire has always had come up with the most effective cooling solutions time and time again.

And It's proven that people are more likely to go online and write a review if they have a negative experience. So thats why i think this card has a lot of dead card reviews. I have been ordering parts from newegg for years and i can't recall one time i've ever got something simple DEAD. I have a feeling user error has a lot to do with these failures.

Perhaps these negative reviewers are using low quality power supplies with too little volts on the 12 volt rail. Or they are not going the extra mile to download the latest beta drivers which have resolved these issues.

Cons: I literally had to hammer my HDD drive bay out of my computer case just to get this huge card to fit

Insten  Black  TPU Rubber Jelly Case for Apple iPhone 6 (4.7-inch)1923783
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: less than 1 day

Pros: It's very sleek looking. Almost like it's a part of the iphone itself, the rubber does not look like your typical dumb rubber, it looks like more of a sleek black reflective polish just like how the black iphone6 looks.

-Case fits snug and tight like a glove. No flimsyness here.

-The black TPU rubber material slides in and out of your pocket with ease, yet it does not slide around when you place it on any surface.

- If you place the iphone down on a table the glass screen wont touch the table because it's lifted up a bit in the front which is nice.

-The case is thick enough so the protruding camera on the back of the phone no longer sticks out so you can put it down on any surface without worry.

- The cutouts at the bottom are precisely cut for the speaker, headphone jack, and charger port..

- Precise sized cutout for the mute switch, it's not too large which is great.

-Does not negatively effect cell reception

Cons: The rubber buttons on the side for the volume rocker and power leave a lot to be desired.. I can barely feel where they are located and you have to push them pretty hard.

Case was SLIGHTLY thinner than i was expecting. Wish it was a molecule thicker

-Ordered the case on a saturday, and on the newegg website said "Packaging" all the way until thursday... So newegg held on to it for almost a week before deciding to ship it.

Other Thoughts: If you want medium protection and a SEXY looking case buy this one. If you want sturdy protection keep shopping.
