SeaSonic X Series X650 Gold ((SS-650KM Active PFC F3)) 650W ATX12V V2.3/EPS 12V V2.91 SLI Ready CrossFire Ready 80 PLUS GOLD Certified Full Modular Active PFC Power Supply New 4th Gen CPU Certified Haswell Ready
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 week to 1 month

Pros: This power supply is about all I could ask for: energy efficient with enough power to run my build. I like the modular design for the cables and everything fit nicely, even in my HTPC case. I'm not sure if it's relevant, but the packaging on the PSU pretty much blew me away. The PSU itself came in a velvety bag (reminds me of a Crown Royal bag, so that's a plus) and the cables have their own bag as well. So if I ever have to transport the PSU and cables apart from the case, I am all set!

Cons: None

SILVERSTONE Black Aluminum front panel, 0.8 mm SECC body Lascala Series LC17-B ATX Media Center / HTPC Case
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 month to 1 year

Pros: This is a great case for HTPC. It feels very sturdy and seems to have a reasonable design for cooling. This can hold two optical drives and up to 6 mechanical hard drives. I used the HDD bay closest to the PSU for my HDD and SSD. I was able to fit an 80mm fan in the center HDD bay to help cool the Radeon HD 6950 and everything fit fine. I wouldn't say I had a lot of room to work with, but everything fit well enough. Just make sure you do some test fitting before final assembly of your build.

Cons: Wasn't fond of the way you have to stick on the cover for the optical drive so it lines up with the finish of the front of the case. Also, the power light in the front of the case is probably the brightest blue light I have ever seen. These still aren't enough of an issue to take away an egg.

Pros: This RAM worked at 1600 out of the box on my new Z68 build. Also fit with the Noctua NH-U9B CPU cooler with no problems. Plus, you can't beat this RAM at this price point.

Cons: None.
