This review is from: CORSAIR HX Series HX1050 1050W ATX12V / EPS12V SLI Ready CrossFire Ready 80 PLUS GOLD Certified Modular Active PFC Corsair CP-9020033-NA Power Supply New 4th Gen CPU Certified Haswell Ready
Pros: Lets keep it sweet and simple.
Get wattage for the majority of builders.
Reliability/warranty, we spell that with a C o r s a i r.
Cons: Its a PSU, short of being loud and failing, which doesn't happen with quality parts and warranty, this can't have Cons.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: Really happy with this processor, I am not biased as my now second favorite chip was my AMD FX-8350.
I am not a super overclocker but enjoy tweaking here and there. This is a very capable chip.
I am not a crazy multitasker either, however I do run a few things while gaming and never even feel a hiccup.
Cons: These aren't really cons as much unique features.
I found that the stock fan isn't really capable of managing the temps that well, this is to be expected.
With an H100 on it and some high static pressure fans it definitely is a heat maker. 32C at idle with 70 under load AIDA64 at stock clocks.
Without a lot of experience on this chip I tried to use Asus optimization to see what happens and can run 3.9 without a change in temps, once I started changing the BLCK Strap and multipliers it just needed more cooling, fortunately for me I am putting it into my 800d/water set up so it will run well.
Other Thoughts: Great multi-tasker.
Great single thread performer.
Needs good cooling for any OCing.
This review is from: SAMSUNG 840 EVO MZ-7TE500BW 2.5" 500GB SATA III TLC Internal Solid State Drive (SSD)
Pros: This is a SSD, it simply works.
I don't run disk benchmarks or raids or anything crazy. I just use SSDs for the simplicity.
This SSD coupled with my ROG fast boot makes this PC the fastest Windows boot I have ever experienced.
The added software also make it a great value.
We all know Samsung makes great products, buy with confidence!
Cons: SSD still more expensive then I feel they should be, this is true of all vendors/brands.READ FULL REVIEW
