Cooler Master Extreme Power Plus - 500W Power Supply
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 month to 1 year

5 out of 5 eggs Great PSU 01/10/2014

This review is from: Cooler Master Extreme Power Plus - 500W Power Supply

Pros: For me, it is quiet. Although I have heard from others that it makes a bit of noise, may just be some faulty fans, not difficult to replace. I have had mine for a year February 2014, running with 2 hard drives, a 125w AMD Phenom II x4 965, a factory overclocked GTX 650 2gb and it has had no problem powering all of this while playing games and recording all at the same time.

Cons: The cables are really short. Made with Micro-ATX in mind. In my ATX mid tower case, the cables can barely reach.

Other Thoughts: I highly recommend this PSU for anyone on a budget. I throw this into every build I design and have witnessed 3 friends purchase it and have quiet working gaming computers.

ASRock 770iCafe AM3+ AMD 770 + SB710 ATX AMD Motherboard

4 out of 5 eggs Great Budget Board 09/05/2013

This review is from: ASRock 770iCafe AM3+ AMD 770 + SB710 ATX AMD Motherboard

Pros: It supports up to FX 8350 (and I believe even the new 9590 with the bios update). It is well built and the VRM works well.

Cons: The only issues I have run into with this motherboard, is that it only has 2 3pin fan connectors and that the USB controller isn't very good. My headset is USB and if it just tap the connector, my computer acts like my headset doesn't exist. I also hate that it doesn't support PCI-E 3.0, but I know that is the fault of AMD CPUs not supporing it yet.

Other Thoughts: If you get this motherboard, make sure you either have fans with a molex plug (or adapter) or have an external fan controller. Also look into getting a USB 2.0 or 3.0 expansion card, they are very cheap.

Creative Sound Blaster Tactic 3D Alpha 3.5mm/ USB Connector Circumaural Gaming Headset
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 month to 1 year

Pros: Good bass, surround sound is very nice when using the USB adapter and still sounds pretty good if you only use the 3.5mm jacks. I've seen many reviews saying that the headset stopped working, or that the wire started to fall apart after a month or two. I have had mine for nearly 4 months now and I've had no issues what so ever (aside from my own computer's malfunctions). I definitely recommend it if you are on a low budget. Maybe other customers that purchased it have not been so delicate with the headset.

Cons: The microphone cover does not like to stay on, does not fit very well for people that have bigger ears. Other than that it is awesome for the price.

Other Thoughts: I use this with my ASRock motherboard's integrated sound (soon to upgrade to dedicated sound card) so if you are told that integrated sound is terrible, that is not always the case, but a dedicated card does make it better, and good headsets like this make it better.
