This review is from: Rosewill CAPSTONE-550-M – 550-Watt Modular Active PFC Power Supply – Continuous @ 122 Deg. F (50C), 80 PLUS Gold, ATX12V v2.31 & EPS12V v2.92, Intel Haswell, SLI, & CrossFire Ready
Pros: Ehh, it's a PSU, modular, does what it's supposed to. Hmm.. packaged nicely, includes little rubber caps/covers to cover the unused sockets, came with a nice 'Rosewill' labeled pouch to store unused harnesses in. Works.
Cons: I think.. it was pricey $100 discounted to 70+4 shipping. Maybe? No remorse in buying it but maybe I didn't look enough at other options. I wanted modular and at the time, for under 550W, this was it. So be it.
Other Thoughts: If it fits your needs, buy it.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: Has the latest features; USB 3.0, SATA 6GBps, was in a Micro size format, has RAID, and easy to overclock. *I was hesitant to buy a board from here as if there were probs, wanted to be able to return it to brick/mortar, not RMA it, however.. worked first time power applied. *Per some prev reviews about RAM not being detected; the specs tell you that only the lower RAM speeds are auto detected, that *higher speeds require you to mess with the Over Clocking settings (actually the XPM setting I think) and everything is fine. Those who can't get it to recognize are experiencing an id-10t error I think.. The BIOS interface is nice, easier than what we've grown up with. 4 memory slots too.
Cons: None, however, the H75(?) chipset may have the same features, just not as many, and at a big discount compared to the Z77. If $ tight and still want current features, look there too.
Other Thoughts: All the blue anodized parts work well with my blue LED theme.READ FULL REVIEW
This review is from: ENERMAX T.B. Vegas Duo UCTVD12A 120mm Blue/Red LED Case Fan with Changeable Modes
Pros: These are great fans, would be perfect if were PWM but have a manual speed control and I can still control them somewhat from my board. The effects are great, multi-modes. I have mine on the Blue Propeller setting. Watch demos on youtube if unfamiliar. Paid ~$17 each I think. Quiet on slow speed, normal/not-ugly, on high. I have two of them in my front.
Cons: Non other than not PWM but that's listed in the description.
Other Thoughts: Have some fun, put some lights in your case.READ FULL REVIEW
