Pros: And on the 6th day He created the ancestor of the engineer who created this power supply. And on the 7th day, He rested and said "some day they will create this power supply".
Seriously though, the advantage of this PSU is never having to buy another PSU for a decade (provided the ATX standards don't change). It should last at least that long, granted it doesn't get hit with any big power surges or rolling brownouts.
The reason behind that is simple: 80 Plus Titanium certification along with a huge overhead to allow for a lot of capacitor aging. This means the PSU was tested to run at 10% power (160W) at 90% efficiency or higher. So you should be able to run any gaming rig on this power supply, from the most demanding to the least, and it's still efficiently converting the power and generating very little heat in the process.
Cons: Price. You pay a premium for PSUs at the 1000W and higher rating. Worse, you pay for the 80 Plus Titanium certification. And with 125 amps of 12V on a single rail, you could probably cold solder wires, lol. That's a dangerous amperage, so if you're ever graced with a fat wallet, use this PSU with caution. And finally, this thing is a beast. At 8lbs it's the heaviest power supply I've ever seen, let alone held in my hands.
Other Thoughts: I doubt anyone here will really need 125amps of 12V for their gaming rig, so this exists to power systems using a lot of video cards for general purpose GPU computing (bitcoin, distributed computing, rendering systems, etc. that rely heavily upon floating-point calculations). And I'm sure a few enthusiasts, like myself, would love to roll this PSU into their next insane build, just because you can. ;-)READ FULL REVIEW
This review is from: Axiom Charlevoix LX 8 Trunk Bag: Black
Pros: Good size; not too small, not too large, as it fits perfectly. It's nicely insulted and holds its shape well. Easy and reliable zippers that go ALL the way around the top make it easy to use. Small strap on back for adding a rear light or reflective badge. Velcro straps to mount on the rack are long, giving a lot of velcro contact surface to keep the bag firmly in place.
Cons: No reflective material built-into the bag. Adding some reflective paint on the back or a small reflector would have helped. If the logo on the back is already reflective, it's only barely reflective (I can't tell at all). Also it would have been nice to have removable elastic straps or partitions inside to help organize and hold contents, but not necessary. That would have been a luxury. Perhaps this company can sell organizers for this bag. Even ones that are rigid to hold their shape? Also, I wish the bag would of had a way to secure the top handle. If you're on a mountain bike, going off-road, that handle will flap around a lot. On road it shouldn't move much, if not at all. Finally, price is ok, but not great. You pay a little more for quality, but with that quality I expected a little more organization options inside.
Other Thoughts: I mounted this on an older Performance brand Transit rear-wheel rack. Fits perfectly. It's on a 1998 Specialized A1 Hard Rock mountain bike with mountain slick tires for commuting, exercise, etc.READ FULL REVIEW
This review is from: LIAN LI PC-100 Black Aluminum ATX Mid Tower Computer Case
Pros: Photographer is an idiot for taking pictures of the wrong side of the case. We can't see the side where we install everything. This is a pseudo-BTX case, and the Photographer took regular ATX side photos.
