Pros: This PSU runs super quiet and cool in my gaming rig (R9 280X GPU and an OC'd 4670K) Corsair also backs this supply with a 3 year warranty. Bought it with the rebate so that's always a plus (still waiting for it). Plenty of connections for everything. The 8 pin supplemental power cord is
Cons: The instructions are confusing, but with enough common sense I figured it out. If you mount your PSU on the bottom of your case the power switch is flipped (up for off, down for on). Don't know what they were thinking including a caring bag and cable bag. Don't really need it.
Other Thoughts: I'd definitely buy a more powerful supply of the same HX series if I decide to upgrade to two GPU's.READ FULL REVIEW
This review is from: CORSAIR Hydro Series H75 CW-9060015-WW Water / Liquid CPU Cooler 120 MM
Pros: Easy to install. This was put into my first gaming rig. I have this cooling an i5 4670K running at 4.1GHz. The hottest its gotten was 67C/153F playing Titanfall on max graphics. The pre-applied thermal paste is easy to remove with some rubbing alcohol and paper towels/coffee filters.
Cons: The first time I started my computer up, the fans made a really annoying clicking sound. I had to rearrange the fans' power wires and tie them down to my case to stop the noise. Also the thermal paste that's pre-applied is cheap, so I removed it and slathered some aftermarket paste on my CPU.
Other Thoughts: The back plate bracket's nuts can come loose and fall out if you're not careful when installing. Beginner's mistake I admit. Corsair rules!READ FULL REVIEW
This review is from: Microsoft Windows 8.1 64-bit
Pros: This feels like an updated version of Windows 7. I got familiar with it in like 2 hours. I personally enjoy the start panel with all the apps (you can remove the ones you don't want). Must be personal preference. Easy to install on an SSD. Boots up on my gaming rig in 23 seconds!
Cons: The package's product key is tiny. You either need perfect vision or a magnifying glass to see it!
Other Thoughts: Have it installed for my fist gaming rig. Games run smoothly and there's a third party app that lets me put my games on the start screen.READ FULL REVIEW
