Rosewill FORTRESS-650 650W Continuous @50°C, Intel Haswell Ready, 80 PLUS PLATINUM, ATX12V v2.31 & EPS12V v2.92, SLI/CrossFire Ready, Active PFC Power Supply
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: more than 1 year

Pros: Heavy, efficient, tons of wires. Very quite and able to power a i5 at 4.5Ghz, mulitple ssd's, a blue ray player, 16GB ram, and a R9280x

Cons: At high overclocks on my CPU, the power supply to my graphics card would fluctuate wildly. Though i have no voltmeter, the GPU (at stock conditions) would constantly reach 100% fan load and idle at about 60%. when I dropped my overclock on the CPU, the GPU never again went above 80%. This, combined with constant bluescreens during voltage spikes (ie idle to stress and back again) makes this an unreliable choice for "higher level" overclocking.
Also, there are tons of cords attached to this non-modular unit, about 3 of which I never use. Next model will definitely be modular/semi-modular.

Other Thoughts: Very good operation under basic conditions. just doesn't pack the punch needed for "hardcore".

Fractal Design Define R4 Blackout Silent ATX Mid Tower Computer Case

5 out of 5 eggs Larger case with all teh bells and whistles 06/13/2014

This review is from: Fractal Design Define R4 Blackout Silent ATX Mid Tower Computer Case

Pros: USB3.0, flat front, quality build, great support, easy to work with, cable management options.
Drive bays, expansion slots, 5.25' front covers are all removable and re-attachable and solidly built

Cons: Large. easily 40% bigger than the last case I had in order to add "cable management"
Sound padding makes little difference on overall decibels
Front panel clips arrived broken, but were replaced for free by contacting customer support.
SSD mounts behind the motherboard trays are impractical. HDD bays do not fit a "dual SSD" adapter like my old case.

Other Thoughts: This is a fun case to build with, well organized, and can hold on to all of its pieces in case i ever need to trade it in.
Be careful removing front panel as you may rip out the front panel connector wires.

LG Black 14X BD-R 2X BD-RE 16X DVD+R 5X DVD-RAM 12X BD-ROM 4MB Cache SATA BDXL Blu-ray Burner, Bare Drive, 3D Play Back (WH14NS40) - OEM
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 day to 1 week

Pros: Reads CDs, reads dvds, burns dvds, reads and burns most blurays, instantly connects and firmware updates in minutes. Works in windows8 pro x64bit.

Cons: Cannot use blurays to burn a system image file. using win7 file recovery (a windows8 standard application) , a single disk would finish burning, then the sysimage program would ask for another disk labeled "volume 1" and all progress would be erased. This continued on for multiple disks, as apparantly the blurays could not index correctly and the program kept resetting. The backup image worked fine on external hdd and multiple (24) dvdRs. The bluray burner works fine for regular backup though at the 6x tested.

Other Thoughts: Could be a problem with Win8 system recovery, could be a problem with the burner, statistically, couldn't be a problem with the media. Will play with DISM and see if I can create a Win8 image and break it into pieces and backup over bd-R that way.
