Pros: Love corsair products, they really understand how to make something beautiful and reliable.
-Gold rated, This power supply never gets hot (NEVER). The fan has never turned on, not actually sure if it even works. But it doesn't matter because there is no need, the thing runs so cool.
-750W is the perfect amount for your normal build with enough left over to run SLI
-Modular is definitely the way to go. Makes cable management so much easier
-Great design (feels solid), all the cables look nice and connect nice and snug.
Cons: Power cables could be a little longer. If you have a full sized case you might have issues with the mobo power supply. I have a ASrocks mobo with the power connector on the very top and the cable just barley makes it (cannot run behind case to hide) and thats in a mid tower.
Other Thoughts: As long as you check to make sure the power cable will be long enough your fine. Minor Con really, not worth removing one egg.
Great power supply, super reliable, a little expensive but if you want gold rated this is the way to go.
Corsair is a brilliant company, would recommend them on every product they make
This review is from: ASRock P67 EXTREME4 GEN3 LGA 1155 Intel P67 SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 ATX Intel Motherboard
Pros: Great Mobo for a great price.
First one died within 5 minutes, but not the motherboards fault. Power supply shorted it out.
Second one came (upgraded version) and has been running great ever since.
-Good amount of usb 3.0
-Digital readout very helpful for trouble shooting
-Bios works well (looks pretty)
Reliability is the main concern for mobos. This one is put together well and seems like it will last a long time (lets hope it does). Had it for almost a year and no issues whatsoever.
Cons: -Back plate for connectors somewhat difficult to install (very sharp)
-Holes for mounting motherboard on case have thin metal spacers that get ripped up when installed, so be cautious if you need to remove and reinstall the mobo
-Could have more 4 pin connectors (only 2 I think)
-Chipset is a little tall so be careful with what graphics card you use. I have an EVGA 660 and there is about 1mm space between the two.
Other Thoughts: First time going with ASrocks for motherboard. Really like the design and it has a neutral black color (if you care about color coordinating)READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: Great 2 step cleaning
Makes removing thermal paste a breeze
Other Thoughts: If it's your first time removing thermal paste, coffee filters work great. Just be prepared to go through a lot of themREAD FULL REVIEW
