Pros: WOW. Just, wow. This PSU is everything I wanted and more. It runs cool and dead silent thanks to the "hybrid fan design" - basically it runs fanless unless you hit about 400W, which only happens during benchmarking in my case. And even then the excellent Sanyo Denki fan remains inaudible. It made me realize how loud my old power supply was: there was a small vibration coming from my exhaust fan that I never heard before I got this new PSU. And of course it runs cool, being rated 80+ Platinum. Lots of cables included for all your needs, there's even an additional 8-pin CPU power cable for those crazy overclocking motherboards. It's standard size so it will fit in just about any micro-ATX or ATX case, and most mini-ITX towers.
Cons: Only real con I can think of are the kinda stiff cables, and it,s not a major issue. Separating the individual wires can help if you really need some more flexibility.
Other Thoughts: While it can't really be considered a con, this PSU isn't very cable modding-friendly. Pre-made cable sets for this unit are rare and expensive, and if you want to make your own there are lots of dual wires in the 20+4-pin ATX power cable, you have to be extremely careful to avoid breaking them.READ FULL REVIEW
This review is from: Corsair Air Series AF140 Quiet Edition CO-9050009-WW 140mm High Airflow Case Fan
Pros: These fans have a good airflow and are very quiet. Not as much as Noctuas or other high end fans of course but they are three times cheaper. And they arent brown. The colored rings are a nice touch.
Cons: They can actually get very noisy if you use them at high speed on a fan controller, they are optimised for low RPMs. However they will move A LOT of air at high speed, so it's not bad. The rubber feet can be hard to screw inREAD FULL REVIEW
Pros: Big, fast, exactly what I needed. It's from Samsung, they make all the components themselves, which means extreme reliability. I also heard good thing about their customer support, but I never had to call them. It's really cheap for such a high quality SSD, and prices keep getting lower.
Cons: This drive will degrade faster than most SSDs because it uses TLC memory. In my case it's not a problem, Iplan to upgrade to a SATA Express SSD when I upgrade my system to Skylake-E.
Other Thoughts: I purchased this particular kit because of the bundled USB 3.0 to SATA adapter. Desktop users should be aware that there are no mounting screws included, not really a con since they are easy to find and this kit is intended for laptop users.READ FULL REVIEW
