COOLMAX CU series CU-700B 700W ATX12V SLI Ready Modular and Compatible with Core i3/i5/i7 Power Supply
  • Owned For: more than 1 year

Pros: Lasted 5 years problem free.

Cons: Finally started being a little weird 5 years in. Gave warnings before it died.

Other Thoughts: Didn't fry my pc going out.

Nippon Labs 2.5
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 day to 1 week

Pros: It works, I guess, just not as I intended.

They included a tiny screw driver so I didn't have to get mine out of the drawer two feet away.

Cons: It will not power off the front two ports of my desktop. It will power off two of my precious rear ports, but I really don't want to plug it in there as those ports are usually full.

The Y-cable is too short for comfort.

No external power supply option or on/off switch(knew this coming in though).

Also, I don't know a nice way to say this, it smells like it has been in close proximity with the wrong end of a large animal with a potent digestive disorder. I'm serious. It smells really bad. If I had known before I purchased it, I DEFINITELY would not have done so.

Other Thoughts: I think next time I'd keep shopping until I found a unit that either A- invariably worked using one USB port and no external power supply or B- invariably worked using one USB port with an external power supply.

ASRock P45R2000-WiFi LGA 775 Intel P45 ATX Intel Motherboard
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 day to 1 week

Pros: Lots of board space. Lots of places to plug in my stuff. Wifi that doesn't take up any real estate that I could use for something else. So far everything works well and is stable. Dual x16 slots. A lot of onboard usb connectors. Lots of SATA as well as some eSATA.

Cons: I had some trouble seating the heatsink for the proc. A little more force than I was comfortable with was required to lock the clips. It was not made clear to me that I couldn't use all 6 RAM slots for DDR2. To clarify that, there are 2 DDR2 slots and 4 DDR3 slots and the two don't mix. Not enough to knock it down an egg (especially since it was my bad and I should have known), but still kind of annoying. Not the board's fault, but routing power to everything was kind of tricky.

Other Thoughts: Replacement/upgrade for a Gigabyte GA-965P-DS3. So far much more stable than my old Gigabyte board - I think the old board may have gotten some ESD at some point though. I haven't gotten around to any overclocking yet, but if the board continues to be stable through the installs for OS #2 and #3 I may well have to.
