Mushkin Enhanced ECO2 MKNSSDEC120GB 2.5
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 week to 1 month

Pros: Speed seems fine to me. I did not run any benchmark tests.

I am running these 24x7 in 2 very small systems for "monitoring purposes only" running software that writes small amounts of data to the drives on a steady basis (RRD graphing files); there is nothing "mission critical" about my application. This usage decision has nothing to do with "distrust of the brand or anything", I just want to see how they will perform over an extended period of time before I spend more money on this brand of SSD.

Cons: None so far

Other Thoughts: I was able to mount these drives using fine-threaded screws that sometimes come with other PC components. I do not know the size.

Remember this. This product is just the SSD drive, just like you see in the pictures. So cables or screws or mounting adapters, so plan accordingly.

EVGA 110-B2-0750-VR 80 PLUS Bronze 750 W 5 yr Warranty Semi-Modular NVIDIA SLI Ready and Crossfire Support
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 day to 1 week

Pros: Very sturdy metal box.

Big fan.

Feels heavier than it's competition.

Cables seem longer than what you normally get, but that is to be expected as EVGA has designed this monster for either "top of case" mounting or "bottom of case" mounting.

It did not "smoke" when I powered it one for the first time.

The power supply tester thingie was a nice addition.

Long 5 year warranty.

Overall build quality of this product combined with the warranty reminds me of a "no longer in existence" power supply company that used to OEM very high quality, incredibly stable and well regulated power supplies and attach long warranties to them, and did it all for a "very acceptable" price premium.

Hopefully this EVGA unit will "stand the test of time" as I am planning to use it in a "home server" class of machine that needs very stable power, but should operate as quietly as possible. My online research pointed me to this model as being "good value for it's price".

Cons: Deeper than a normal power supply, so plan your installation very carefully.

Partially-modular design; motherboard cables, 1 4+4 CPU power cable, and video card power cables are hardwired.

Motherboard power plug was extremely snug in the motherboard jack. It took some effort to get it securely installed.

Long hardwired cables will require patience and space to store within your case.

Other Thoughts: No eggs for Newegg shipping.

The shipping box was poorly taped for the weight of the contents it contained. I received the box at my door and noticed it was not properly sealed, so an immediate "on the spot" inspection of all contents (many very small loose items, just thrown into the box with 1 big power supply box) and count of all quantities was necessary. Fortunately everything was there and undamaged even though a number of the "air cells" were deflated. Come on Newegg, what would another strip of sealing tape and a minute to "pay attention to the task at hand" cost your company?

Shipping was not handled by UPS as I would have expected (as a Newegg Premier account) and as Newegg's shopping list page had led me to believe. Had I known the shipper would have been a poorer quality service (compared to my experiences with UPS), I would have made the effort (and spent the money) to buy this stuff elsewhere.

Intel Core i7-4790 Haswell Quad-Core 3.6GHz LGA 1150 84W BX80646I74790 Desktop Processor Intel HD Graphics 4600
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 month to 1 year

Pros: Everything.

Has QuickSync; AES support; vPro (nice, when paired with appropriate motherboard); VT-x, VT-d, VT-x with EPT (nice, when using virtualization technologies that support it); and a number of other useful features onboard.

Cons: I don't like the heatsink/fan mountings that rely on "push pins" to secure them to the motherboard. I have had too many "push pin" heatsink/fan assemblies "get loose" or just plain "wonky" on me. I replace those "push pin" assemblies with Dynatron K5 92mm (N82E16835114136) heatsink/fan mountings that use screws to secure the entire assembly to the motherboard in a "sandwich" fashion; heatsink/fin-MB-backplate.

Other Thoughts: I don't overclock so I could not justify the cost of a i7-4790K.

I am using this in a Windows 7 system that supports VMware-based virtual machines and has a Supermicro motherboard (N82E16813182829) that supports the various Intel VT features mentioned above.
