This review is from: CORSAIR AX series CP-9020044-NA/RF 860W ATX12V / EPS12V SLI Ready CrossFire Ready 80 PLUS PLATINUM Certified Full Modular Active PFC Power Supply New 4th Gen CPU Certified Haswell Ready Factory Refurb
Pros: Once I got a working unit it was great
Cons: The first PSU I got fried one SSD and an HDD on first boot up.
Other Thoughts: I contacted Corsair directly when the first PSU failed. I went through their RMA process, which was fairly slow and complex....taking about 3 weeks to get a replacement unit, but I felt that Corsair was more than fair in the way they responded.
I figured since one unit failed and one worked that averages out to 2.5 eggs, so I rounded up to 3.
This review is from: Rosewill ARMOR-EVO - Gaming Mid Tower Computer Case - Supports Up to E-ATX MBs - Six (6) Pre-Installed Fans: 2 x Front Red LED 120mm, 2 x Top 120mm, 1 x Side 230mm, 1 x Rear 120mm (Supports Up to 9)
Pros: 6 fans included. tool-less optical drive bays, easy space to work in (for the most part), compatible with liquid cooling. ability to turn LEDs on/off. very competitive price
Cons: only very nit-picky stuff but: all of the fans are 3-pin (or MOLEX) so you can only control fan speed with voltage (no 4-pin/PWM fans). My H100i blocked a number of connectors on the top of the motherboard - could use a little more space up there. The parts list/manual does a poor job of differentiating all of the different screws, slowed my building (shut up, I'm new).
Other Thoughts: If I could do it over I would still buy the same case. I do recommend some sort of fan control- my build runs great using the on-board fan control program (fan xpert 2) but it's loud when they are all running at full RPM.
