G.SKILL 4GB (2 x 2GB) 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM DDR3 1333 (PC3 10600) Dual Channel Kit Desktop Memory Model F3-10600CL9D-4GBNT
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: more than 1 year

Pros: Functional memory sticks backed by G-SKILL's usual lifetime warranty.

4gb (2x2gb) of CL-9 memory is perfect for your typical computing applications.

Cons: I wouldn't recommend these for advanced computing, but the set is excellent for your everyday computer 'user'.

It never baked me cake (but come to think of it, neither has my high performance memory).

Other Thoughts: Worked very well in my build for a year and a half before being replaced with a high performance (and higher capacity) set for gaming and encoding.

Nippon Labs SATA3-0.5M 1.64 ft. SATA III Flat Cable with Latch
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: more than 1 year

5 out of 5 eggs It's a SATA cable 03/03/2013

This review is from: Nippon Labs SATA3-0.5M 1.64 ft. SATA III Flat Cable with Latch

Pros: SATA functionality.

SATA socket latch

Cons: SATA socket latch

Other Thoughts: the 'latch' on this product is as much a gift as a curse. It works great for holding the cables in place to the motherboard when multiple devices are vying for precious space. Has prevented cables from becoming unhooked from pressure near the socket.

Difficult to remove the clips in tight spaces, if the latch is under another sata cable you must remove both cables. A very minor con considering how infrequently one must reroute cables in a fully functioning system.

KINGWIN Lazer LZ-850 850W Modular 80 PLUS BRONZE Certified Active PFC W/ 3-Way LED Switch and Universal Modular Connector Power Supply
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: more than 1 year

Pros: Purchased 10/13/2010 - Running strong for 2.5 years

Modular design that is both effective and easy to use.
- Modular SATA power + 4 pin, (2) 6-pin PCI, (2) 6+2-pin PCI

This power supply has had no problem powering 2 crossfire 5850's, 2 crucial ssd's, 2 WD 1tb hard drives, and two optical drives.
Room to expand more SATA devices (assuming your motherboard can keep up)

This power supply is more than capable of powering my build, which I have expanded to its' limits.

The LED color switch is a nice touch for those who are interested in the visual appeal of their cases.

Cons: 24-pin cable length. I believe it would benefit from being about 6 inches longer. To avoid running it over the top my graphics cards, I simply purchased a 24-pin extender for a few bucks at the same time as this power supply. (easy remedy)

Adjacent SATA devices require a relatively tight bend in the sata power chain. The plugs are spaced well enough to fit hard drives/optical drives but two ssd's in a docking station are a tight squeeze. The cables DO still fit securely onto both drives. (minor detail, expect this from most all power supplies)

(Tri-fire/Triple SLI is out of the question with this power supply... But if you REALLY needed that functionality you wouldn't be looking at an 850w)

Other Thoughts: I purchased this power supply in October 2010 to give myself room for future expansion. Within 1 year I had an additional graphics card and ssd. By the end of the 2nd year I had added another 1tb storage drive and a blu-ray optical drive.
Through 2 and a half years of ownership this Kingwin has powered my system for gaming and home theater DVR via cable card.

I have been very satisfied with this power supply from first boot, and will certainly stick to Kingwin in the future.
