This review is from: Rosewill Glacier-850M, Glacier Series 850W Modular Power Supply with Silent Aero-Diversion Fan, 80 PLUS Bronze Certified, Single +12V Rail, Intel 4th Gen CPU Ready, SLI & Crossfire Ready
Pros: -The price was unbeatable, plus I got it on sale
-Handles my single R9 GPU and FX-8350 (both with OC settings), 3 HDDs, and all of the case doo-dads
-Is very quiet
Cons: -None... yet
Other Thoughts: -Did my research and found out that this was manufactured by Andyson before purchasing it. Andyson has had some shoddy PSUs in the past, but since Newegg's brand is putting their name on it... I too shall place my trust.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: -Insanely fast memory.
-Stable with OC settings on my AMD build.
-Very cool with enough airflow.
Cons: -Doesn't make me breakfast in bed.
Other Thoughts: -High quality sticks, per G-Skill usualREAD FULL REVIEW
Pros: -Relatively stable and fast for the lack of $$$ required to throw it into a budget performance build.
-Handles everything I need to run (Adobe CS5, Doom, dedicated servers for games, etc).
-Mates well with Corsairs H80i GT liquid cooler (>25* at 4.6 OC in my high air flow build).
Cons: -Not an FX-Zen... but couldn't wait another 4-6 months to rebuild my old rig.
-Slow compared to the Intel chips, but meh... the $100 I saved went elsewhere in the rig.
Other Thoughts: -Slow compared to the Intel chips, but meh... the $100 I saved went elsewhere in my build (i.e.- cooler/quieter fans for the entire rig).
-AMD has always been my go-to chip maker for builds, and always makes it insanely easy to OC their products.
-Would definitely recommend this for a budget/starter build (especially when the $$ drops with AM4)
