CORSAIR CX series CX750 750W ATX12V / EPS12V SLI Ready CrossFire Ready 80 PLUS BRONZE Certified Active PFC Power Supply New 4th Gen CPU Certified Haswell Ready
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 week to 1 month

Pros: I really like this power supply; granted it is not modular but I love how long cables are, particularly the CPU cable. I have a mid tower case. The CPU cable is so long that I am able to route it around my motherboard keeping it out of sight. I have a 900 watt Antec and disappointed how short the CPU cable was. I had to route it over the video card which generally seems the case. Some complained that the cables were too long. I love how long they are. It gives you plenty of room to play with them.

Cons: It is not modular but I didn't want to pay extra for a modular PSU, so it is not really a con.

Corsair Carbide Series 200R Black Steel / Plastic compact ATX Mid Tower Case
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 week to 1 month

Pros: I was choosing between the Antec three hundred two and this Corsair 200R computer case due to pricing. I have to agree with the reviews. I liked the Antec three hundred from a previous build but it was messy; whereas, as the reviews say, it is a joy to build with the Corsair 200R. There is just plenty of room to maneuver and hide the cables. It has very nice 4 ssd drive bays that easily fit in. You do need the spacers for your SSD drives that usually come with it to make for a snugger fit. And they have 4 bays for your 3.5 hard drive that face towards you but have to be plugged in from the other side. They are all plastic but I was satisfied how well they fit and snapped in place.Due to it's width, it can accommodate these monster sized video cards nowadays. The Antec three hundred was a little tight for the video card but there was enough for it to fight..

Cons: I don't know if I like the power supply on the bottom but that seems to be the trend. You have to be careful if you put this case on a rug. I would recommend putting a board underneath or thick plastic sheet.. It also makes it farther for the CPU power supply cable to reach. It could always be cheaper :) But I liked the nice clean look and there were no sharp edges. Beautiful interior. All black. So I was satisfied. I wanted to buy the Antec three hundred two since it was $10 cheaper but I decided to to just spend the extra $10 since the Antec Three hundred two was messy.

Other Thoughts: The only thing that bothers me with newer cases is that the power supply is on the bottom; so the CPU power supply cable has to reach all the way across the motherboard. But when you add a video card, it is tight to stretch over the video card. I decided to buy the CABLE STARTECH| ATXP4EXT RT. This OCZ 600 watt skimped on the CPU power supply cable. I actually haven't put the video card in yet, but I can see it is going to be tight like my previous build with the Antec 300.

Crucial M500 CT480M500SSD1 7mm (with 9.5mm adapter) 2.5
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 week to 1 month

Pros: I initially had problems installing this drive using Windows 7 pro 64bit. I kept getting this message: fine-set-root--ignore--floppies-ignore-cd/bootmgr: error 15: file not found. I could not get passed that. I almost returned it and even had a RMA. I was surprised since I have a fairly upate to date i7 ivy biostar motherboard. After some experimentation and discussions with tech support, I came to the conclusion that the problem was my Windows 7 pro 64bit original restore disc because I had no problem installing using a retail disc that had Windows 7 service pack 1. However, the problem was eventually, solved by updating the firmware to MU03. I then reinstalled my Windows 7 restore disc without SP1 and it installed without any problems.

Cons: I decided to give it 4 stars, even though, eventually I got it working fine so far with the firmware but Crucial should not have put this out to market like that. I didn't have any problems with Windows 7 without SP1 on other SSD drives. I have already purchased about 4 so far and this is the only one requiring a firmware update.

Other Thoughts: Nice fast drive. I thought the price was decent for a 480gb SSD drive. 240gb gets to be a little thin these days. It's nice to have more room. These SSD drives are amazing. I put one in a Dell GX280 SSF 2.8ghz HT and it runs Windows 8.1 32bit like a champ. Much better than Windows XP. Windows 8.1 may be clunky but a SSD drives brings back life to this ole computer. I did it out of curiosity and now use the computer as a backup computer.
