Other Thoughts: Please anyone planning on buying a Corsair RM PSU be warned. These PSUS have a few cheap capacitors in them which is plain unacceptable from a reputable brand like Corsair. Don't buy PSU's with ANY cheapo Caps in them you're just asking for trouble. If and when a power supply fails it could take some of your other parts with it. BE WARNED. The people buying these DESERVE to know about this if they are going to spend their hard earned money on what they think is a solid PSU.
This is also a problem in the CX series. Really if you buy any PSU from corsair do some research on it beforehand. I recommend XFX preferably the XTR series they are very very good.
Other than that they are good power supplies and can run top of the line graphics cards without a hitch. For how long is the question.
This review is from: ASRock Z77 Extreme3 LGA 1155 Intel Z77 HDMI SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 ATX Intel Motherboard
Pros: Got it November 2014 and still works like a charm, Fit perfectly into my Coolermaster storm enforcer case with no troubles getting the I/O shield on.
-Awesome bios really easy to navigate
-Love the dark black color
-Very good for overclocking if you have an unlocked CPU
-3 chassis fan connectors
-Tough and not too flimsy
Cons: None at all
Other Thoughts: Absolutely no problems with this motherboard was really easy to build with and had no trouble with it lining up with the standoffs. (Had trouble with this before with an ASUS motherboard and an Antec case, was not sure if it was the motherboard or the case before)
Remember people dont usually right a review unless they had a problem with something, dont be thrown off by all the bad reviews this is a great motherboard for a first time builder.
If you want real information you can trust on this motherboard or pretty much any piece of hardware look it up at toms hardware forums they will have nothing but good things to say about it
This review is from: SAMSUNG 840 EVO 2.5" 500GB SATA III TLC Internal Solid State Drive (SSD) MZ-7TE500BW
Pros: This thing is stupid fast, with RAPID mode and high performance mode on under power settings I get 1206 MB/s read and 1146 MB/s write. Everything is really quick and snappy windows boots and loads all my startup programs in 15 seconds where with my old HDD 30 seconds to boot and it took forever for all the programs to start up. Amazing drive especially in RAPID mode.
Cons: The restoration software (After I updated to the latest firmware) took like an hour but I was willing to waitREAD FULL REVIEW
