Pros: 4 stable 22-25amp 12 volt rails, semi-modular eliminates unneeded cable clutter. Massive capacitors and pfc coil with dual pcb's enables this puppy to pump the power out cool and quiet. Great noise and ripple suppression.
This a Great power supply for modern SandyBridge cpu's and the new 3rd generation IvyBridge cpu's, with plenty of power for 2 power hungry Video cards and multiple hard and optical drives.
Cons: Not a con in my book as I have P193v3 case, but it will not fit most cases without modification.
Other Thoughts: I don't agree with some reviewer's here taking eggs off for it being a non-standard size and others inability to plug the modular cables in the right way.
If you are having problems with which way the cables go in, it's simple...look at the plug, it has a retainer clip on on one side, just match it up with the indent on the power supply. If you can't grasp this simple step,(in my opinion) you have no business taking on the job of building your own computer.
This review is from: ASUS SABERTOOTH Z77 LGA 1155 Intel Z77 HDMI SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 ATX Intel Motherboard
Pros: Military components, 5-year warranty.
This board is laid out well and all the attention to detail is
is ever so present, from the little fans that cool the Backside of your motherboard to the "Armour" that protects sensitive open rails of copper conductors , to the , did I sat 5-yeqr warranty. Not in my build yet, but will give updates here, I'm only short the cpu for a complete build....I took a look and it is like no other , it's clean and mean.
Cons: (Packing) Peanuts were all over the top , but none below the Motherboard, which makes no sense, the bottom gets the abuse.....no eggs off , just bad packing in Ca., never had this problem from the New Jersey warehouse......
Other Thoughts: seems future proof , durable and reliable, and cheaper than the overpriced ASUS MAXIMUS IV EXTREME.....Do a dual comparison of the 2 here and save yourself 50 or 60 bucks.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: Able to read many damaged discs.....burn quality is reliable but slow...... see below
Cons: I'm lost here as this one came with a 1.04 firmware that even 1.04 firmware is'nt available from Asus...only 1.03...my guess is ,I have one with a different chipset than that of the 1.03 branded firmware......I can't go beyond 2.4x on DL, and I feel a little bit dissapointed.....may be the same drive but the 1.04 firmware it came is trash, or I have a NEC chipset....that's a rip... -2 points
Other Thoughts: The jury is still out if it's the firmware or chipset making my burns only avalible as 2.4x dl and 12x on dvd+r ?????
Any ideas out there????
