This review is from: Intel Core i5-750 Lynnfield Quad-Core 2.66GHz LGA 1156 95W Processor BX80605I5750
Pros: Was used since 2009 and still keeps up with current GPU's, This CPU is still better than anything AMD has to offer.
Other Thoughts: I loved this CPU the performance is still decent enough to not bottleneck current high end GPU's, But I replaced it with a i5 3470 because finally after 5 years it is starting to reach it's limits. But honestly anyone still using a i5 750 could get a couple of more years out of it.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: Low cost, Reliable, High efficiency, Looks great in any case., Can be used and trusted with any expensive GPU.
Cons: I really can't think of any cons.
Other Thoughts: This really is a nice PSU. I was very impressed by the load test reviews. And the lates CX V3 models have been greatly improved in power output and efficiency. You buy a PSU by wattage for what you need. I bought mine because I only planed on using it for one good GPU. When I first got the CX600 I was running a i5 750 and GTX 650 Ti, Now I am running a i5 3470 and a R9 270. And the great thing is I can upgrade to a more powerful GPU if I want to. This is a strong unit for $70. I trust Corsair's CWT OEM units over any other brand on the market. CWT has always made strong reliable units.READ FULL REVIEW
This review is from: Antec Three Hundred Illusion Black Steel ATX Mid Tower Computer Case
Pros: Sturdy has the front intake filter to keep dust out, Has plenty of fans to keep your expensive parts cool and safe.
Cons: Very bad cable management, No matter how creative you are it's going to look sloppy inside. So it's a good thing it has no side window.
Other Thoughts: There might be better mid towers but this one has housed 2 i5 gaming systems. And kept them good and cool.
Now she houses a i5 3470, 8GB G.Skill Ripjaws 1600, R9 270 3 HDD's And my Asus Optical. Corsair CX600
