This review is from: Rosewill HIVE Series HIVE-550 550W Continuous @40°C, 80 PLUS BRONZE Certified, Modular Design, Single +12V Rail, ATX12V v2.31/EPS12V v2.92, SLI Ready, CrossFire Ready, Active-PFC Power Supply
Cons: -1 egg
Cables are plastic coated no mesh.. all black (might be a positive for some) stiff .. really really stiff
cables are a bit short in my case ( http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16811147185 ) rosewill galaxy -03 really had to struggle to get the 8-pin cpu run around the back side of the mother board ( i foreseen this and ordered a 8-pin extension cable which was shipped from New Jersey while this psu was shipped from TN ?? seriously guys and arrived the next day due to delays prolly won't use it till my next build)
the 20+4 motherboard connectors were also quite the task to get connected once again due to the stiffness of the cables
- no eggs
The extras (the baggy to hold unused connections i'd have passed on to have individually braided cables rather than going out and buying a set of cables through a 3rd party)
Other Thoughts: System Specs
Radeon Entertainment Series 4GBx2 1600 DDR3 Ram
SAPPHIRE DUAL-X R9 270 2gb
OCZ 120gb SSD
Cooler Master Seidon 120XL
This review is from: MSI 970A-G43 AM3+ AMD 970 + SB950 SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 ATX AMD Motherboard
Pros: Price Price Price .. pretty much sums up why I purchased this board. I was able to squeeze out 4.2 on my 6300 with a Seidon 120XL keeping temps below 44c while running prime95 for a few hours. (didn't need to run it over night cause i will never stress the cpu that much at any given time)
Cons: Limited board cooling which limited me in my oc'ing of the board but i knew this going in. didn't seem right to knock an egg for it.
Other Thoughts: would buy again for future budget gaming build where oc'ing isn't the users focus.
Pros: ***will update after i install***
Cons: ***will update after i install***
Other Thoughts: Seen this and was a little over zealous and checked out before reading the reviews. So my fingers are crossed and hoping i get a good one. Lost all my steam data today ..200gb worth .. so i'm hoping this doesn't disappoint.
