CORSAIR CSM Series CS550M 550W ATX12V v2.4 and EPS 2.92 80 PLUS GOLD Certified Modular Active PFC Power Supply
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 day to 1 week

Pros: In general you won't go wrong with Corsair PSUs so long as you do your homework. I've fried or overtaxed several power supplies in my time but Corsair PSUs have never let me down, and this keeps me coming back. The advertised feature set is exactly what I needed for my current project, a mini-ITX small form-factor htpc box with gaming cred. This PSU is solid and quiet, but there are some very minor quibbles.

Cons: The modular cable options are a bit limited. I needed to use two separate SATA power cables to accommodate three drives in my mini-ITX case, which would not have been a factor if the connectors had an additional inch of separation between them. It also would have been nice to have a molex adapter present so that the dedicated molex lead could have been omitted, but this is a very case-sensitive circumstance. Bad pun, sorry. No serious knocks here, but do be sure to check the diagram in the product photos to ensure that the cable and connector options are going to play nice in your system - mine required all of the modular connections to be used, where in a perfect world I could have deleted two cables.

Team Zeus Yellow 8GB (2 x 4GB) 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM DDR3 1600 (PC3 12800) Desktop Memory Model TZYD38G1600HC9DC01

  • Owned For: 1 day to 1 week

Pros: Decent timings and decent hardware at the price. i wasn't familiar with the particular branding on the dimms, but they do not disappoint. Good value for money. Heat spreaders qualify as "low-profile" and gave me no problems in a mini-ITX build.

Cons: None

Intel Core i5-4590 Haswell Quad-Core 3.3GHz LGA 1150 84W BX80646I54590 Desktop Processor Intel HD Graphics 4600
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 day to 1 week

Pros: Marginally faster stock than the Sandy Bridge i5 2500K that I have in my main desktop system, at marginally lower wattage. A good buy on this basis alone.

Cons: None

Other Thoughts: Using in mini-ITX htpc / steambox build. Very satisfied with it.
