This review is from: APEVIA ATX-CB700W 700W ATX12V / EPS12V SLI Ready CrossFire Ready Power Supply
Pros: 700w power, the different plugs make for a lot of options for video cards, hard drives and other peripherals, cool blue light.
Cons: Let me start off by saying, the fan on this thing is a lot noisier then I expected. When playing a game or using a program that uses a large amount of the system resources, that fan on the power supply slowly speeds up to keep things cool... and in doing so starts making a strange noise as it spins.
Other Thoughts: If you need a PSU with a higher wattage I don't know that I'd recommend this one to be honest. There are a lot of others that deliver a good amount of power that are in this price range to choose from. I won't be buying this particular PSU again, knowing what I know now about the noisy fan.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: Ive had this graphics card now for a little over a month and its given me no problems. It was refurbished but I decided to give it a try anyhow. I notice a significant improvement from my previous hardware and can run most of my games at max or near max settings and still maintain 45-60+ frames per second. Edges are clean and smooth with the enhanced anti-aliasing features, user friendly overclocking and more.
Cons: The dual fans can get a little loud if you manually speed them up over 40% however I keep mine anywhere from 20-40% and it keeps the card plenty cool even on a full load.
Other Thoughts: Definitely would recommend picking this card up refurbished or not, even paying for a brand new card id say its worth picking up.READ FULL REVIEW
This review is from: CORSAIR Hydro Series H100 (CWCH100/RF) Extreme Performance Liquid CPU Cooler
Pros: Considering this was a refurbished cooler, I kept my eye on it for a few days expecting to hear the coolant and my processor making sizzling music of horror but to my happiness its keeping my processor nice and cool. I idol around 3-4 degrees Celsius and between 15-20 degrees Celsius on a heavy load.
Cons: The fans are a little loud, nothing I haven't already gotten used to however.READ FULL REVIEW
