Pros: This PSU is pretty nice. Fully modular. Cables are flat and contrary to some people's complaints, very manageable in my 6 year old CM tower. Plenty of misc. cables. Very easy to install. Stable and reliable. Solid, quality feel when you first take it out of the box. Good packing and secure padding.
Cons: Virtually none. But I do want to be 100% honest so that a potential buyer gets the whole story.
Cable connection could fit a little tighter into PSU and a little looser into hardware. Neither are deal breakers by any means imo.
Other Thoughts: My setup:
AMD FX 9590 8 Core 4.7 CPU
Radeon R9 280x OC WindForce
Asus M5A97 R2.0 MoBo
Adata 265 Gb SSD (Sata 6)
WD 750 Gb 7200 HDD
Thermaltake Water 3.0 performance CPU cooler
2x DVD Writeable drives
3 120mm case fans
I calculated my setup at about 720ish watts requirement, so I went with this 850. It DOES get a bit .. a BIT mind you, hot under decent load. I do also slightly underclock my cpu and have gone into BIOS and adjusted some options for optimal temperature priority/solution as well.
Take it as you may, but won't list it as a con. Just stating info for comparison or whatever helpful use it may provide you with.
I write this because I feel the fan should function a little earlier on maybe?
Again, nothing listed constitutes a con by any means.
Pros: Does the job and then some. Bought at 49$ and couldn't be happier. I would even recommend this RAM at full price. As others have said, remember to change your speed in your BIOS to 1866 if that's the speed you want, otherwise it IS stock at 1600. Thanks GSKILL and NEWEGG.
Cons: None.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: It's pretty slim, has a fan built in, performs slightly above average, comes with clock controls,fan speed controls and more..
Cons: Can't really think of many. It's a $70 dollar card.
Other Thoughts: Is used with a slightly older quad core processor from AMD. 4 Gigs of system RAM. Catalyst was installed as well.
@Normal clock/fan/etc. settings:
SWTOR: 30-45 fps. Can run on mainly low-med at best.
Second Life: Can run everything on high with minimal/acceptable lag.
Overall not too bad at all. This one is pretty new still so I hope this review helps. I'd get it if you were looking for something to get the job done for now, plus a little bit more for a reasonable price.
