PC Power and Cooling Silencer Mk II 950W High Performance 80PLUS Silver SLI CrossFire Intel Haswell Ready Power Supply
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 day to 1 week

Pros: Just got this in a few days ago as the first part of a completely new build I'm working on. I popped it in my old computer for now along with my new GTX 670 FTW, and she's humming away without a single problem. As of right now my computer is a mid-performance computer, and not nearly beastly enough to tax it even close to its limits, so it's running cool and silent and it will have plenty of power to spare even when I finish my high-performance build.

Cons: Because I haven't gotten the case yet (and the one I'm using is mid-sized) this thing was a bit of a chore to fit in. One of the mounting screw-holes didn't quite line up, but since the other three got in there just fine, it's still pretty solid in the mounting bracket. Once I lined it up fine, all was good... well sort of.

Other Thoughts: I was not ready for the amount of cables that came with this thing. I won't list as a con because I knew what I was getting and I knew it wasn't modular, and I am getting a much larger case soon where the cables won't be a problem. But stuffing all the spare cables into my mid-sized case was tough, I'm just glad it came with the velcro ties to help me bind cables together so it wasn't a total mess in there.

As far as performance goes, I can't see a single thing wrong with this PSU-- of course time will tell if it continues to work well, but either way if you have a small or mid-sized case and not a lot of space for cables, you might want to look for something more modular.

Logitech Optical USB Mouse B100 (910-001439) Black 3 Buttons 1 x Wheel USB Wired Optical 800 dpi Mouse
  • Owned For: 1 week to 1 month

Pros: Have a couple of these mice laying around in the IT office I work at, and it's currently the mouse I'm using until I get the order in for a M510. All I can say is it's an okay mouse. For basic daily office use it gets the job done, but there are a few things that are annoying about it (see below).

Cons: Of the 5 mice we have in our department alone, 3 of them have severely annoying scroll wheels-- when you move it up or down, the click is audible throughout the entire department, and I've gone up to cubicle land and heard people 5-8 cubicles over with B100's scrolling the wheel. It's really quite obnoxious. The mouse itself is quite honestly awkwardly shaped, it's really fat in width, where I'm used to more ergonomically shaped mice, and the buttons require more pressure to depress than usual. I tried to take one home and game with it and it absolutely killed my game, the mouse is unusable for anything besides basic daily use.

Other Thoughts: Its weight didn't really bother me, but it is extremely light, even for a basic mouse. I do not recommend this for anyone who's serious about gaming.

Intel EXPI9301CTBLK Network Adapter 10/ 100/ 1000Mbps PCI-Express 1 x RJ45
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 day to 1 week

Pros: Simple to install, no CD to throw away, no bloatware, and yet the drivers are packed with loads of great features for hardcore techies and tweakers, all while working perfectly fine out of the box on default settings.

Cons: None so far

Other Thoughts: I bought this card to replace my onboard (RTL8169) Ethernet which was giving me connectivity problems with some of my games, and so far so good with this one! I haven't noticed as enormous a jump in download speed as some others have reported but that's probably because (as I just recently discovered) I still have a 10/100 router. Regardless, I seem to be able to stream 1080p videos more smoothly now, so I'm happy.
