This review is from: CORSAIR AXi series AX1200i 1200W Digital ATX12V v2.31 and EPS 2.92 SLI Ready CrossFire Ready 80 PLUS PLATINUM Certified Full Modular Active PFC Power Supply New 4th Gen CPU Certified Haswell Ready
Pros: great reviews, were very nice on the phone..
Cons: I bought two, thinking they should be the last I'll need.
One unit came in with the entire set of cables for the 1200, not 1200i.
The 2nd unit came in and the light is green and I get power in that the cpu fans spin but the system won't boot. Then it cycles a few times and the LED on the power supply turns red.
An Antec power supply boots up without issue.
Problems with 2 out of 2 units, so far. And now I've got to take the 1st unit back to my integrator as the 2nd unit wouldn't boot - and I don't even know if the 1st unit will work properly (as it was only hooked up with the 24 pin, as the two 8 pins were for 1200 not 1200i).
Spending a lot of money on a power supply should mean less frustration, not MORE. Quality control seems very poor.
My integrator could not get thru on their tech support line after 6 calls. No returned calls for the messages left.
Pros: running 4 high def video streams on win7-64, works perfectly.
I'm not showing up as a verified owner because Koutech was very kind and swapped this card for another one that was PCI-X.
Their tech support is just top notch.
Cons: noneREAD FULL REVIEW
This review is from: ZALMAN CNPS9500A-LED 92mm 2 Ball CPU Cooler
Pros: I've used them before, and they will cool a cpu even without the fan
Cons: Their quality control has dropped to zero, the heat sink mount was deformed so that the fan was in contact with the heat sink. No way this happened during shipment, it was shipped like that from their factory. A blind autistic child could have caught this before it shipped.
Other Thoughts: I've had one fan fail in another unit, and they are a pain to replace, depending on the orientation.READ FULL REVIEW
