CORSAIR CX series CX750M 750W ATX12V v2.3 80 PLUS BRONZE Certified Modular Active PFC Power Supply New 4th Gen CPU Certified
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 month to 1 year

Pros: *Ample modular SATA, PCI-E and molex cables
*Relatively quiet fan while running
*Very good value for 80 Plus Bronze psu

Cons: *ATX & CPU cables are not modular

Other Thoughts: Bought on sale with rebate for a low-cost HTPC system build. I wanted ample room for adding more SATA drives later and this psu allows me to do that at a reasonable price point. If you are looking to power a gaming rig, then you should upgrade to one of Corsair's Gold or Platinum models. This one is a solid choice for a low-cost system sans the monstrous video expansion.

ASRock H87M Pro4 LGA 1150 Intel H87 HDMI SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 Micro ATX Intel Motherboard
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 week to 1 month

Pros: *Reasonably priced H87 board
*Plenty of slots for future memory, SATA or PCI-E expansion
*Supports multiple monitors (HDMI, DVI, VGA)
*Plenty of USB 3.0 support

Cons: *Connecting the 24-pin ATX power cable can be a chore if you have already seated your memory. They are a tad close on an otherwise roomy board.

Other Thoughts: Bought for a low-cost HTPC system build. I needed something with good enough on-board video (multiple monitor support), good enough integrated 7.1 sound, plenty of SATA interfaces, 4 memory slots for future upgrades, and plenty of USB 3.0 support.

This board does what I need it to without any hiccups or hanging. Easy to configure BIOS, quick installation. With Windows 7, you'll probably need to install the network driver from the disc. If you are unsure of yourself, use the manual--it's very easy to follow and find your way around.

Because this was a low-cost system build, I put this board in a Coolermaster N200 case with Corsair CX750M psu, Intel Pentium G3220 processor, 8 GB Ares DDR3 1600, 128GB Sandisk SSD, and Seagate 4TB SATA HD. All of those components bought on New Egg with significant discounts.

Really easy board to work with if your build is not particularly demanding to begin with.

Seagate Desktop HDD.15 ST4000DM000 4TB 5900 RPM 64MB Cache SATA 6.0Gb/s 3.5
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 week to 1 month

Pros: Low-cost storage for media files; runs smoothly; reliable.

Cons: Average read/write specs

Other Thoughts: Need some storage in your HTPC system build? Pick up one of these on sale.
