This review is from: CORSAIR AX series AX860 860W ATX12V / EPS12V SLI Ready CrossFire Ready 80 PLUS PLATINUM Certified Full Modular Active PFC 80 Plus Platinum Modular ATX12V & EPS12V Power Supply Power Supply New 4th Gen CPU Certified Haswell Ready
Pros: This unit can handle two 760s SLI and an Intel 4790k CPU. It has semi-glossy black cables that blend in better in most cases. Fully modular of course. Feel like it's just made with high quality material. Has a hand cable that has on one end two 6/8 pin input for graphic cards requiring more power.
Cons: First one was DOA :/
Other Thoughts: Don't be discouraged by an item having many reviews of DOAs power supplies from any manufacturer all have a decently high DOA... it's normal and bound to happen.READ FULL REVIEW
This review is from: GIGABYTE GA-F2A58M-HD2 FM2+ / FM2 AMD A58 (Bolton D2) HDMI Micro ATX AMD Motherboard
Pros: Outstanding quality for 30$ Was happy it was not DOA but then again MOBOs generally aren't. Worked right out of the box.I found out the hard way FM2 processors do not support onboard video graphics. Otherwise high quality board.
Cons: only one fan connector.
Other Thoughts: Built rig using this replacing a 4-5 year old inspiron computer for my uncle he was impressed with the improved speed and response. All in all this is a good mobo for a basic usage comp for browsing minor photoshop. Not sure how it would hold up in gaming rig but how could it hurt to try when it's only 30$READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: Outstanding cache prediction, having just transferred from an AMD processor I can now tell it had many cache misses (Fx 6300 fyi) I plugged this baby in and gosh dang I would have to say I am impressed Intel is where its at. And this CPU being naturally clocked at 4.0 Ghz it has oustanding speed and I have no need for it to be faster everything loads practically in the blink of an eye.
Cons: Not enough for an egg off but get a bit hot with stock heatsink on any video game. Suggest getting a bare minimum of like a Hyper 212 Evo only 35 bucks. Not bad if your already spending the money on this processor.READ FULL REVIEW
