Pros: Quiet and seemed to work well while it lasted.
Cons: Died on me after 4 months
Other Thoughts: I bought a SeaSonic PSU because I generally see them rated as the best, most reliable power supplies money can buy. I was quite happy with it for the first 4 months, ran very quiet, no problems. Then once day I come home to find my PC had turned itself off. Press the power button, blinks on for a second the goes out. So I open the case, check all the power connections to the motherboard, etc. Still won't come on. I then use SeaSonic's recommendation of "jump starting" the PSU by shorting two of the pins on one of the cable. The power supply comes on and seems to be working. So I plug everything back in and the PC powers back up!
4 days later it's dead again. I try the jump start method again, but it only stays on for a minute. So I'm now sending the unit back to SeaSonic for RMA repair/replacment. Hoping that goes without too much headache. If that goes smoothly, I might update this review to 3 stars.
Pros: Fast drive. Cheap. Lite-On is usualy great quality.
Cons: Very sensitive to disks. I have several disks that refuse to work in this thing, even though they are flawless and work in other drives. Using the latest firmware too. For example: my Crysis disk will just sound like it's knocking around inside the drive; works fine in any other drive.
Other Thoughts: Not bad at all for the price. Just be ware of disk read issues. Bought mine from ZipZoom at the time.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: Stable Card. Overclocks without a sweat. Fits my Thermaltake Armor case. With stock clocks I can run Crysis with tweaked "Very High" settings at ~30FPS average. It obsolutly kills every other game out right now.
Cons: Fan is very noisy at 100%, but near silent compared to the rest of my case below 65%. Not really much of a con since you never really need to run it over 50% under normal use, even overclocked.
Other Thoughts: Mobo: Abit IP35 pro
CPU: Intel E8400 @ 4GHz
RAM: 4GB (2xGB) G.Skill DDR2-1000
PSU: Corsair 620HX
