This review is from: NVIDIA GIFT Batman Arkham Origins
Pros: Came free with my new EVGA GTX 760 DUAL Superclocked. It's the third game in the Arkham series which is dope dope.
Cons: Unfortunately the code I received was either invalid or had already been used (not sure how that could have happened), but after chatting with customer service and sending a screenshot of my the invalid error on the geforce wesite, newegg is sending me another code which will hopefully work.
Other Thoughts: Arkham Origins will be my first Batman game for PC and not console, so I'm really hoping the new code I get works.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: Great look. Sleek, black, almost completely modular (Two 4+4pin CPU cables and a 20+4pin Motherboard Power cable being the only non-modular ones). Good specs, 12v rail can handle up to 80amps on it.
Cons: So, I had high hopes for this power supply. It wasn't my first choice, but it was $100 cheaper, had great reviews, and I know Cooler Master is a pretty solid company.
First power supply, DOA. Okay, I understand this happens. I popped in my old power supply, everything worked fine, and I RMA'd the dead PSU.
Second power supply (replaced by another BRAND NEW power supply) DOA.
Maybe it was a bad batch that went through, but two brand new PSU's arrived DOA. For $180, I kind of expect things to work. I didn't even get my case fans to twitch upon trying to power up. The only indicator I had was the lights on my LAN would blink once.
Other Thoughts: I have used Cooler Master cases and heatsinks before, and am currently using a Seidon 240M water cooler. I know Cooler Master has reliable components, which is why I gave this power supply 2 eggs (not to mention the build quality was excellent). But this slip up was...disappointing. I will be biting the bullet and going with my first choice in power supply (new german company that recently started distributing in North America) and staying away from Cooler Master Power Supplies from now on.READ FULL REVIEW
