CORSAIR RM1000i 1000W ATX12V / EPS12V 80 PLUS GOLD Certified Full Modular Active PFC Power Supply
  • Owned For: 1 day to 1 week

5 out of 5 eggs most competitive Corsair psu in years 08/30/2015

This review is from: CORSAIR RM1000i 1000W ATX12V / EPS12V 80 PLUS GOLD Certified Full Modular Active PFC Power Supply

Pros: - in cable capacitors for enhanced ripple supression
- quiet operation, even when fan is on
- 7 year warranty
- 100% japanese caps
- price vs the competition

Cons: none

Other Thoughts: this psu series is an upgraded, yes, an improved version of the HXi units that cost more. those have higher efficiency, mostly good for marketing than real world use, but this has all japanese caps, even on the modular pcb and type 4 cables to make up for the lack in efficiency. this unit comes with better sleeved cables as with the in cable capacitors the standard (and cheap) ribbon cable isn't viable. this unit is priced even or withing $10 of EVGA's 1000G2, another psu with in cable capacitors and excellent ripple supression. the main difference is the package. the 1000G2 has no hybrid fan mode, bright red pci-e cables and a loud fan profile (the 1300G2 as well). this unit is a better buy, although you get a 10 year warranty with EVGA that is also transferable if you sell or give away the psu. this is Corsair's most competitively priced psu as the rest of the EVGA GS/PS and G2/P2 lineup is just dominating the market from a value for dollar perspective.

saw an eggxpert review from Jeremy S. just an FYI, this unit uses a better type of cable with capacitors in the cables, so the sleeving on the HXi and other Corsair psus is the cheaper ribbon type. using cables from another series of Corsair psu on these means that the ripple and vreg perform exactly like the HXi series, so this becomes simply a less efficient version.

be quiet! PURE ROCK CPU Cooler 150W TDP
  • Owned For: 1 day to 1 week

5 out of 5 eggs best budget cooler overall 03/16/2015

This review is from: be quiet! PURE ROCK CPU Cooler 150W TDP

Pros: looks good
very quiet under load
easy installation
high quality fan

Cons: will block first ram slot

Other Thoughts: saw two negative reviews from the same user. this product is rated for 150w TDP. AMD FX cpus will pass that heat threshold easily if overclocked. be quiet typically have treated AMD as an afterthought as a couple of their other coolers only mount sideways on socket AM3+. ultimately this and other budget coolers won't be enough for an overclocked FX. you need the best vrm and coolers to support them and that's the reality so many buyers overlook. this cooler is a bit smaller than the 212 EVO and much quieter. it beats the corsair H60 too. great budget cooler for intel socket 1155.1150. for AM3+ and socket 2100/2011-3 you want to get something more expensive.

Phanteks “ Enthoo Pro Series “ PH-ES614P_BK Black Steel / Plastic ATX Full Tower Computer Case
  • Owned For: 1 day to 1 week

Pros: - price
- case panels are removable with screw, not rivets
- up to 420mm rad support up top
- 200mm fan support in the top as well
- best watercooling potential under $200
- great cable management features
- fan hub that transforms 3-pin fans to pwm
- modular HDD cages
- SSD mounting brackets
- removable psu cover
- pump/res mounting locations
- full dust protection

Cons: none

Other Thoughts: it's here. the best $100 case to ever release. this case blows away cases that are twice as expensive. Phanteks is going to have the best case lineup out pretty soon. the Enthoo Primo was great, but these new models are perfecting and improving on the features that one introduced.
