Be quiet! Pure Power L8 600W ATX 12V 80 Plus Bronze CrossFireX Power Supply - Exclusive 120mm Fan
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 week to 1 month

Pros: Quiet, nice looking, with all the connectors.

Cons: I could say none. But here is my take on Power Supplies. In many cases (such as mine) only about half the power runs are needed. I have a Micro ATX with no need for 4 pin molex or floppy connections, nor do I need graphics card power. So, I think it's time for the engineers to come up with a cheap yet effective way of only installing the cable runs you need. I know there are modular P.S.s out there, but they are too expensive. And they don't address the price issue. Computer Power Supply cables should (in my opinion) be a separate choice/item. This is not a con for this particular PS, it's for all the non modular power supplies. New Mobos don't even have IDE connectors. And most new cases don't have floppy openings.

Other Thoughts: It was the most time consuming task of setting up my new PC. Barely had enough room to tuck away all the unused cables.

ASRock FM2A88M PRO3+ Socket FM2+ 95W / FM2 100W AMD A88X (Bolton D4) HDMI SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 Micro ATX AMD Motherboard
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 day to 1 week

Pros: This is my third ASRock mobo. No issues with any.

Cons: Could use at least 1 more chassis fan header. Maybe a front panel header adapter like the big guys use.

Other Thoughts: You must have access to some very talented professionals. please have them write a more comprehensive manual, explaining the bios set up.

AMD A10-7850K Kaveri 12 Compute Cores (4 CPU + 8 GPU) 3.7GHz Socket FM2+ 95W AD785KXBJABOX Desktop Processor AMD Radeon R7 series
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 day to 1 week

Pros: Plays games fairly well by itself. But, at a lower than max settings. Plenty fast for most computing.

Cons: Temps go up quickly under load, especially with stock cooler. Lack of "proper" cooling is why I took off 1 egg. I had to buy a "performance" cooling solution.

Other Thoughts: Setting up the bios is something that needs to be explained better by some of the mobo and cpu manufacturers. It took quite a bit of research and trial and error to get it right. And while there a lot of OCers out there, the manufacturers should chime in with detailed instructions. It's hard to know if I have it right.
