  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: more than 1 year

Pros: Purchased: 12/1/2010 - Still running
Rock Solid Performance
Mesh sleeving looks sweet (even when the case is closed)
Outlast Warranty

Cons: Some cables not Modular (small nitpick) For instance, who would want to pull out the 20+4Pin MOB power harness.

Other Thoughts: 135mm 2 ball bearing fan.

I am pretty happy with this PSU. The Blue lights match all the other lights that I really do not want but that I am stuck with :P I like Blue.

It has served me on two systems now. And I am hoping it will last me for a few more years.

5 out of 5 eggs Great MOBO, Bad rebate system. 03/12/2012

This review is from: GIGABYTE G1 Gaming G1.Sniper LGA 1366 Intel X58 SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 ATX Intel Motherboard

Pros: Well put together board, Killer NIC, Creative sound card (would have loved to see an Asus but that is not going to happen).
Great performance

Cons: NIC Would love a second one.
WOL (not often used, but it is a step backwards)
Slightly larger than ATX (Could not fit crossflow fan)
Green/Green Lights (I will change this!)
Cheesy gun parts (Ok if you are a kid I suppose, I would have loved some nice Copper)
No more driver updates :(
You can only use one raid controller at a time.
End of life

Other Thoughts: A second NIC would have been perfect, it would provide WOL and using just about any other NIC would have made life easier with Linux. There are "No" Linux drivers available for the Killer NIC.

Speaking of Drivers, Killer Networks seem to be having some issues writing and testing (QA) their drivers. Many report errors of the Network Manager app losing connection with the NIC which is solved only by a System restart in most cases.

Creative -Great hardware, terrible support and drivers.

Buggy Bios update software and updates.

I really love this board and aside from the "cons" there is a lot to enjoy on the board.

Corsair Force Series GT 2.5

This review is from: Corsair Force Series GT 2.5" 90GB SATA III Internal Solid State Drive (SSD) CSSD-F90GBGT-BK

Pros: Fast

Cons: Doesn't work as well with the Marvell controllers.
Corsair is rather smug in the forums about it being "everyone elses fault"
Price Clarity
SATA Connectors barely holds cables

Other Thoughts: Fast Fast Fast in Riad 0.

Some issues in Marvell controllers which other manufacturers have seemed to address. Sadly, Corsair seems to blame others and in doing so, the SSD's may never see their full potential in this setup.


A simple "Limit 1" like I see many other companies placing next to sale/rebate price would have worked wonders.

Was a good deal, but read the "fine print" Limit 1 rebate per product group/per house etc.etc. The Rebate said XX.XX price after rebate XX.XX on Newegg store. If I had known that Corsair was only going to honor one rebate, I would have purchased the OCZ models I was also looking at - at that time. I could also care less when the paperwork was "entered into the system", You got it a month earlier!

For the difference I could have went with the competitors and obtained better results with the same setup

Small nitpick on the SATA connectors being so small and "cheap" they barely hold the SATA cables on.
