Pros: -7-year warranty! That is very important to me, because this isn't exactly a cheap PSU, and I would like for it to last a long time.
-Platinum rating, meaning that it's more efficient, meaning lower energy bills, saving you money in the long run.
-Very silent (when there isn't the coil whine)
-Fully Modular, and plenty of cables. Also, I didn't have any issues with cable length, unlike the PSU that I upgraded from.
-Plenty of wattage for the vast majority of rigs out there.
-Packaging was very nice. I know that doesn't really make the PSU itself any better, but it still left a good impression on me, and made me feel like what I was paying for was worth the price.
-Cables are braided nicely, and they are all a very clean black, making the case look clean.
-Comes with zip-ties!
Cons: -Coil whine, though it only happens when I am gaming and the computer starts to get hot. For normal usage, the PSU is perfectly quiet.
-Some of the cables are VERY stiff, specifically the motherboard power connector. I know that the cable is very thick, and so that is the main factor, but still, it was much stiffer than the same cable from my other PSU.
Other Thoughts: Overall, I think that it is a great PSU, and the coil whine doesn't really bother me, so I am not going to bother trying to RMA it. I would recommend getting this power supply, though I would be a bit weary if coil whine really bothers you. However, there is also a 7-year warranty, and I am guessing that they would be willing to replace the PSU over the coil whine.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: The card WAS an absolute beast! It ran everything great and I was very happy with the purchase.
Cons: This card only has one con. It stopped working after about 7 months of normal usage. Or at least what I consider to be normal for this card. I mean, I did a fair amount of gaming, but nothing to wreck the card.
Other Thoughts: I think that you should purchase the card as it seems not many people have the problem that I had, but I am a bit disappointed.READ FULL REVIEW
