Fractal Design Newton R3 600W ATX12V / EPS12V SLI Ready CrossFire Certified 80 PLUS PLATINUM Certified Modular Power Supply
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: 1 week to 1 month

Pros: - Very quiet.
- Modular Cables.

Cons: - None

Other Thoughts: I'm going for a quiet PC setup and this PSU works so perfectly in my Fractal Design Define Mini Case. It is many times quieter than my previous name-brand 600W PSU that this replaced. The fan on my previous name-brand PSU was louder than all my case fans and CPU fan combined. I don't stress my computer too much but I do many hours of gaming. I don't think I've heard the semi-passive fan turn on or maybe it's just that quiet.
The price may seem a bit high but you will be ordering a quality product. The presentation and packaging exceeds any computer component I have bought before.

EVGA SuperClocked 02G-P4-2765-KR G-SYNC Support GeForce GTX 760 2GB 256-bit GDDR5 PCI Express 3.0 SLI Support w/ EVGA ACX Cooler Video Card
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: 1 week to 1 month

Pros: - Twin fans provide excellent cooling. I've tested the fans for about an hour in game. Kept the fans at 50% speed and the temperature remained at 61 degrees C. The sound of the fans start to become fairly audible above 50% speed so this is great for me as I'm trying to build a quiet PC.
- Great performance for the money. Good for the average player looking to play new games at high settings.

Cons: - A little bit of coil whine. Becomes really noticeable when the FPS shoot up really high. Can be overcome with v-sync or a frame limiter. This is my third EVGA card (2 650 ti, and this 760). All of them made some sort of whine so I guess its a common thing. Also this 760 is on a new mobo and PSU so I don't think that's the problem. Not worth a RMA though.

Fractal Design Define Mini Black Silent MATX Mini Tower Computer Case
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: 1 week to 1 month

Pros: - Minimalistic appearance.
- Brushed-look front panel is really nice.
- Great cable management.
- Almost all black except for HDD/SSD quick release trays and PCIe brackets.
- Lots of options for hard drive and fan placements.
- Silent.
- Fans that come with the case are pretty good.

Cons: - Flimsy drive bay covers.
- Bright LED

Other Thoughts: Build quality is okay. The foam sound insulation for one of the "ModuVents" was glued on crooked like one of the workers was having a bad day and just slapped it on. Not worth taking off an egg but worth mentioning. Besides that fact I think this case is amazing and it's a great buy if you are looking for a silent and sleek looking PC.
