CORSAIR CXM series CX430M 430W ATX12V v2.3 80 PLUS BRONZE Certified Modular Active PFC Power Supply
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 month to 1 year

Pros: 80 PLUS Bronze 430w
modular cables for drives/peripherals
Quiet
Low price

Cons: Bare minimum of modular cables (4)
sata plugs are too close together.

Other Thoughts: I had a 400w Antec HCG (OEM=Seasonic) in my nMedia case HTPC. An excellent PSU, but its multitude of fixed cables were stuffed under the BDR drive. The CX430M is smaller and I only need to use the two sata power cables (just two plugs on each). One connected to the SSD OS drive and the 2TB AV-GP. The other needed a sata (F-M) 6" extension cable to reach the BDR drive and a small SSD for programs. This PSU is perfect for my use and the 400 HCG went into my wife's PC, much quieter than the original Earthwatts 380 that it replaced.
If I receive the rebate, this PSU only cost a mere Lincoln!

Rosewill RMS-MT2790 Black 13
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 week to 1 month

Pros: Solid construction
Easy to install
Tilt and pivot, easy to adjust and tighten firmly.

Cons: Not free?

Other Thoughts: Only cost 25.48 for two with sale price and coupon code. Mounted a pair of BIC dv62si bookshelf speakers (large wood boxes) to the wall in my mancave. Perfect!
I drilled the pilot holes to mount them wih a 5/32" bit instead of 1/4" as the directions suggested. That made it easier to tighten the included lag bolts. As a previous reviewer said, make sure you use the right screwdriver/bit - a #3, or you will round out the phillips head on the tough-to-drive-in lag bolts. Get the right tool or you'll be sorry!

ASRock FM2A88X Extreme6+ FM2+ / FM2 AMD A88X (Bolton D4) HDMI SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 ATX AMD Motherboard
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 week to 1 month

Pros: FM2+, 2 x PCIe 3.0 x16, 6 x USB 3.0
HiFi sound, HDMI input
I had no problem finding the driver for the Asmedia controller for the two extra USB 3.0 ports.

Cons: No problems here. A s/pdif header on the board would be nice.

Other Thoughts: Bought this for a HTPC build with plans to replace the A6-5400K dual core APU with a A10 Kaveri APU very soon. The Purity Sound design and components are nice for this application. Compared to other onboard sound or my E-MU 0202 USB external sound 'card', I can obviously hear cleaner, lower extension bass with the analog stereo output of this mobo connected to my stereo and subwoofer. The HDMI input is a plus for a HTPC, too!
Installed Win7 Home Premium SP1 in minutes from a USB 3.0 drive through one of the onboard (Bolton D4) ports. (No optical drive on this build.)
