CORSAIR CX series CX430 430W ATX12V v2.3 80 PLUS BRONZE Certified Active PFC Power Supply
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 day to 1 week

Pros: It's Corsair, it works. I have all sorts of stuff from this bunch: multiple PSUs, a case, RAM, etc. All good stuff.

Cons: Wasn't wrapped in a velvet bag like my higher end Corsair PSUs were. And it's all about 'da bag.

Other Thoughts: Not modular so expect cables everywhere. That's OK as "I'm pulling an Apple" and don't have a optical drive in this system - so I jammed the extra cords in that space.

3 out of 5 eggs Idiotic OS 08/09/2014

This review is from: Microsoft Windows 8.1 - Full Version (32 & 64-bit)

Pros: From my limited testing, this is faster and more responsive than Win7. Automatically sensed, downloaded various drivers, including fully proper nvidia, etc.

Games seem to work properly, and the OS includes the same compatibility option as Win7.

Cons: This is just one goofy OS. The 'Start Menu' in 8.1 is in no way a proper one, the requirement to click in certain areas of the screen, and then plow through options to get where you need to go is really inanely moronic.

Yes you can DL free fixes for this, but why should you have to? No wonder Ballmer's out.

Other Thoughts: I have this on a FX6300 setup and it certainly is fast and works is it was meant to. However, I can in no real way recommend this OS if you're already on Win7. If you're on XP, or just "buying in", I'd try to wait it out for Win9 and see.

If you're getting beat up by malware with XP, etc, you could always try a Linux distro or two. Then put the Win install on a Virtual Machine.

This OS is useable (hence the 3 star rating), but for me it's a learning experience vs something actually I wanted to do.

ARCTIC Freezer 7 Pro Rev. 2, CPU Cooler - Intel & AMD, Multi-Directional Mount, 92mm PWM Fan
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 week to 1 month

Pros: Works as intended. Normal use running stock sees around 30c, when the cpu is pushed it sees around 40c without much change in the fan.

Cons: The heatsink can only point up or down, not to the side. This caused it to overhang my ram and forced me to use some laying around without the fins.

Other Thoughts: The heatsink only covers the center of the cpu, which was alarming to say the least. But it's been working properly. Infinitely better then that sorry little thing that came with the CPU.
