  • Verified Owner

2 out of 5 eggs Don't fit head - large 02/06/2014

This review is from: BIOSTAR Model iDEQ N10 Gift Headset

SeaSonic SSR-450RM 450W ATX12V / EPS12V SLI Ready CrossFire Ready 80 PLUS GOLD Certified Modular Active PFC Power Supply New 4th Gen CPU Certified Haswell Ready
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 day to 1 week

Pros: Quality Build
Moderately Quiet
Modular w/ 2 dedicated Sata connector cables

Cons: Stiff cables, but above average
Moderately Quiet

Other Thoughts: There are only a few gold rated modular 450w power supplies (ps). I own this and the Rosewill Capstone 450w.

The Capstone has a 135mm fan vs. the 120mm on this model. Both fans are moderately quiet. Moderately quiet means that I can here them, but they are not offensive. Neither, by far, are not the quietest PSs I've owned. With both, the noise is similar to a 120mm fan spinning just above 1,000 rpm. With 120mm case fans, 900rpm and below seems quiet to me.

The Seasonic modular ps cables are flat, which allows them to bend forward and back , but they are too stiff from side to side. This makes them difficult on a drive stack, 5.25 CD, 3.5 HD & 2.5 SSD, because excessive stress is put on flimsy Sata power connectors. Seasonic Sata cable plugs, L shaped, favor a bottom mounted power supply unlike the Capstone which favors an upper location. With the Capstone, ps at bottom, I had to run cables to the top of the case and then connect drives going down. Capstone cables are stiff in all directions, putting stress on wires (the ps cable wires) at the plug and plugs are too closely spaced. Also, too many plugs are Molex. What good is modular (the Capstone) if only 1.5 cables have Sata plugs? Yep, you get stuck with two molex plugs (the other .5) hanging in your case. Cables, while not perfect, are much better with the Seasonic. Two cables are dedicated to Sata connectors.

Intel Pentium G3220 Haswell Dual-Core 3.0GHz LGA 1150 54W Desktop Processor Intel HD Graphics BX80646G3220
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 week to 1 month

Pros: Two strong cores, low power usage, inexpensive, wide range of uses.

Cons: Fan could be better

Other Thoughts: Assembled an i5 and this Pentium over the last month, both water cooled and with Samsung 128gb SSDs. The plan was to use this in the HTPC and upgrade it to a Broadwell later. Water pump in i5 machine had an issue so the Pentium had to jump in and do some office work. Prior to purchase I was concerned about the Pentium's ability to fill my need. Hello, surprise, plenty fast. I think it's awesome. As an HTPC I can watch a movie on one monitor and play with my flight simulator on the other. It rips up spreadsheets, emails, without pause. Cores idle along at about 77 degrees (5 degrees over room temperature). Both cores maxed out for 15 minutes, it hits a whopping 92 degrees. I have one 900 rpm fan, S-Flex, in the computer. Water cooler is a Corsair H50. PS is a Zen 400 watt. Mobo is ASUS B85M-E/CSM. Running Windows 7. Recommend for HTPC, Office, Email, and light gaming.
