This review is from: Cooler Master i600 - 600W Power Supply with 80 PLUS Bronze Certification
Pros: Was weary of buying a single rail, but so far, so good. Modular cable system is over rated anyhow, just tie off unused wires. I learned why pay more for modular system and more rails a long time ago.
Cons: Got this when my COOLER MASTER Silent Pro M600 RS-600-AMBA-D3 600W ATX12V V2.3 SLI Certified CrossFire Ready 80 PLUS Bronze Certified Modular Active PFC Power Supply died after one year. So why spend more money on multiple rails when a single rail will work just fine. Modular cable system is over rated as well.
Other Thoughts: When it's all said and done, modular cables, multiple rails, etc. are all overrated. What counts is watts plain and simple, the rest is just fluff.READ FULL REVIEW
This review is from: BIOSTAR TPOWER i55 LGA 1156 Intel P55 ATX Intel Motherboard
Pros: New egg had one left in stock, lucky me. Expansion, original quality, speed, and is the last of the 1156 boards new eegs sells.
Cons: One of the pins on the CPU board was not clipped properly, so I had to perform surgery on it. Talk about nervous. This is the last of the 1156 boards New Egg sells; still has outdated devices, such as Floppy, no USB 3.0, etc. but hey it was a replacement board for a freakish CPU I bought. Expensive for the last of its kind, and could have been discounted, bad New Egg, bad boy.
Other Thoughts: Farewell socket 1156, we hardley knew ye.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: You know you bought the right item when it sells out days after you bought it. Less than $1 per GB, thank goodness we've crossed that barrier on SSD. Read the other reviews for tech specs, but know this, it's plug and play and super fast. Don't forget to format and mount the drive in WIN7.
Cons: New-egg please get more in stock and drop the price about $11.00. No more rebates, ever, ever, ever, they are the devil.
Other Thoughts: Doesn’t smell like delicious bacon. Mmmmmm bacon.READ FULL REVIEW
