Pros: Can support 2x Xeon E5-2600 series CPUs, and a full 16 sticks of 4 GB RAM.
Cool, quiet, and stable. No issues.
Cons: ATX power connectors were put on backwards, but that's me being very, very, VERY scrutinizing. Not a real problem.
Other Thoughts: There's a story to this. We recently purchased 64 Thermaltake TPX-1275M power supplies. Some of them would work properly, but a staggering percentage of them (to ballpark it, ~75%) wouldn't power on the system properly when more than 2 RAM modules were installed. It would constantly cycle power, not even POST'ing correctly.
We got in contact with Thermaltake directly (big shoutout to Dhony), and they agreed to exchange all 64 PSUs for the TPG-1200M. The entire time they were very courteous and understanding, advancing us two units to test before we decided to commit to the exchange.
Overall our experience with these supplies, and with Thermaltake in general, has been nothing less than stellar. I would rate 6 stars if possible. Unfortunately, Newegg.
This review is from: Logitech G230 3.5mm Connector Circumaural Stereo Gaming Headset
Pros: Sound quality coming out the headphones was pretty good. Nothing I can complain about. However...
Cons: Oh jeez where do I begin...
1) The ear cups are uncomfortable to wear with glasses. They make a squeaky sound if they shift around. That being said....
2) Why is this thing shifting around? No matter what position the cups are in, it's moving around a lot.
3) The microphone is picking up sounds from the headphones themselves. WHAT. If I am not mistaken, no headset should ever do that. The reason I get a headset is to be able to speak to teammates in games without them hearing game or other sounds coming from my system. This completely defeats the purpose of using a gaming headset.
4) When the mic is active, people listening to me speak can hear a very audible, repeated clicking noise. Of course this can get annoying to them.
Poor quality and design choices were made when crafting this headset. I do not recommend this at all.
Pros: Powerful, 1275W of peak power. Semi-modular. Lots of power options.
Cons: Out of 12 or 15 installed in regular builds, about 6 have failed already. By "fail" I mean they either don't provide enough power when 4 RAM slots are populated, causing the computer as a whole to not even POST. It's really hit or miss with them, which is extremely frustrating seeing as we have to burn through them at an alarming rate. This horribly affects productivity and costs US time and money to get replacements.
Other Thoughts: If possible, you should stay away from this one. We have 850W Seasonic PSUs on hand, and although they don't provide the same peak wattage, they have yet to fail on us.READ FULL REVIEW
