SeaSonic S12II 620 Bronze 620W ATX12V V2.3 / EPS 12V V2.91 80 PLUS BRONZE Certified Active PFC Power Supply
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: 1 month to 1 year

Pros: Has never given me a problem as far as system booting properly, never any random shutdowns or anything in 7 months of moderate gaming use (I do game quite often but work all the time, you know) - looks like I picked a solid component! But...

Cons: ...every time I installed this unit with the fan facing down (my case has ventilation on underneath the power supply for this purpose) one of the heavy-gauge wires inside would get in the path of the fan and would produce the alarming noise TINK TINK TINK. I then had to precariously try and get a toothpick (butter knife too broad!) through the fan grille to push down this wire & then leave the fan facing upward (which does pull some of the warm air inside the system out through the PSU I understand, but I don't overclock or anything crazy) which makes already unwieldy cable management (non-modular) even more difficult (all the cables come out of one side, which is farther away from the back of the case with the fan facing up)

Other Thoughts: I have read about Seasonic PSUs (or was it units manufactured by Seasonic for other brands?) having this problem, but keeping that interior wire down proved very trying on my nerves when I had just built my first PC with very limited free time that particular week.

5 out of 5 eggs good basic mouse 03/28/2012

This review is from: Microsoft Wheel Mouse Optical

Pros: Got to love a simple, inexpensive mouse! Probably not up to pro gaming standards, but works just fine for the price.

Cons: No extra buttons... to hit accidentally when you don't mean to? Not a con to me

Intel Core i3-2120 Sandy Bridge Dual-Core 3.3 GHz LGA 1155 65W BX80623I32120 Desktop Processor Intel HD Graphics 2000
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: 1 month to 1 year

Pros: Easily outclasses my old Pentium D from 5+ years ago. Uses all 4 threads (2 cores hyperthreaded) more often than I thought it would. Handles any games I throw at it without issue, paired with a fairly inexpensive H61 motherboard, SUPER CHEAP 8 GB DDR3 1333 memory, and relatively beefy GTX 560ti graphics card.

Cons: Not an i5 of course, but for $50 less I'm very impressed. Not 100% "snappy" all of the time, but I think I can mainly blame that on my lack of an SSD more than anything.

Other Thoughts: Had a hard time deciding between this and an FX 4100 or Phenom II x4 960T, and I'm not sure if I would have noticed any performance difference in what I use it for (primarily gaming), but I'm happy with what I ended up with.
