CORSAIR RM Series RM750 750W ATX12V v2.31 and EPS 2.92 80 PLUS GOLD Certified Full Modular Active PFC Power Supply
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 month to 1 year

Pros: I have owned this power supple for over 6 months now and I am very happy I went with the corsair RM750. It is ridiculously quiet and efficient. at idle the fan doesn't even spin and when it does I can't hear even with my ear right next to the fan intake. The modular flat cables make cable management a breeze and they look really nice in the case. You can purchase after market, individually sleeved cables for this psu if that is your thing. Plenty of cables included and the cable length was perfect for my corsair 750D case. Add in the 5 year warranty from corsair and that makes this a perfect psu for my system.

Cons: Absolutely none.

Other Thoughts: The cables can be a little stiff to bend, but once you get use to working with them it gets easy.

MSI Radeon R9 290 GAMING 4GB 512-bit GDDR5 PCI Express 3.0 x16 HDCP Ready CrossFireX Support Video Card
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 day to 1 week

Pros: The MSI r9-290 gaming card is a beast and the Twin Frozer cooler MSI slapped on it does a great job of cooling and remaining quiet. I ran this card through unigine heaven benchmark and msi kombuster, and it didn't go above 77C and stayed surprisingly quiet. I threw some skyrim (with the texture mods) at it and it didn't even break sweat running well above 60 fps on ultra. Titanfall, Tomb Raider, SWTOR, and Assassin's Creed 4 all ran flawlessly on ultra settings maintaining 60+ fps. The backplate looks amazing in the case and if you decide to do a custom liquid cooling loop EK makes a block for this card. So far this card is exceeding expectations and I am very happy I bought it. I am not a fanboy so if deciding between cards have no worries about this card it performs great and has zero heat or noise issues.

Cons: Absolutely none!

Other Thoughts: I did switch the bios switch to legacy, just because I don't want any compatibility issues. The card is massive so make sure you have enough room, although I believe most decent mid and full-towers will have no trouble. Card is heavy but the backplate adds some rigidity to the card so no visible sagging.

For Reference I'm running:

i5-4670k (overclocked 4.2 ghz)
Be Quiet Dark Rock3 cpu cooler
8 gb ram (1600 MHz xmp profile)
128 gb ssd
1 tb hdd
EVGA Supernova 750 watt semi-modular
Corsair 750D (4 fans intake, 2 fans exhaust)

Corsair Obsidian 750D Black Aluminum / Steel ATX Full Tower Computer Case
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 day to 1 week

Pros: This case has support for everything without being ridiculously over the top. Extreme functionality without a lot of frills that add to cost. Plenty of room to route cables and more than enough room for any graphics card setup or cpu heatsink. The case come with 8 spaces for fans, which also translates into multiple ways to custom water cool. Solid construction, smart design for SSD's and modular hard drive cages. If your looking for a full-tower with plenty of room for expansion and future upgrades, this case will get the job done.

Cons: Absolutely none.

Other Thoughts: I decided to go with this case because it has all the expansion room I will ever need for whatever I decide to do in the future. I know the case comes with a $140 to $160 price tag, but the reality is a case is the only future-proof computer part you can buy.
