Seasonic Flagship PRIME TITANIUM 650 SSR-650TD Active PFC 80 PLUS Titanium 650W ATX 12V 135mm Fluid Dynamic Bearing Fan Super Quiet Power Supply
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: 1 day to 1 week

Pros: reputable brand
supposedly higher quality and efficiency
long warranty

Cons: see "other thoughts"

Other Thoughts: I purchase Seasonic PSUs due to the brand's popularity and supposed reliability, however, my experience so far hasn't been smoothing sailing.

My first Seasonic was a X-650 gold PSU - it died within 6 months.
My next Seasonic unit was a Snow Silent 750 platinum PSU - it died within 12 months.
My blind faith in the brand is still strong given all the positive reviews easily found on the web. I'm giving Seasonic another shot with this new PSU. So far, it seems to be working properly.

If this PSU goes kaput like the other two, I probably won't be buying Seasonic again. If my $30 Corsair PSU works fine after so many years, I question my decision to cough up hundreds on supposedly more reliable brands....

If anyone could offer some insight on why my Seasonics seem to die easily compared to cheaper brands, please do tell.

Corsair Hydro Series H110i GTX 280mm Extreme Performance Liquid CPU Cooler

2 out of 5 eggs Noisy noisy noisy! 09/01/2016

This review is from: Corsair Hydro Series H110i GTX 280mm Extreme Performance Liquid CPU Cooler

Pros: Looks cool

Cons: Messy, dangly cables
So loud

Other Thoughts: The fans sound like turbines, the pump sound like aquarium oxygenator. so freaking noisy. This is my 4th Corsair liquid cooler and they all behave the same - very very noisy.

I keep coming back to these because they look nice, only to regret getting them the very same day due to messy/dangly cables and annoying noise levels.

My advice to corsair: work on noise dampening, and group and braid those annoying cables. There's no reason to have multiple wires coming out of my pump making a mess in my cse.

Phanteks ENTHOO EVOLV ATX GLASS PH-ES515ETG_GS Galaxy Silver Aluminum (3mm) Exterior, Steel Chassis, Tempered Glass Panels (left and right) Midtower Case
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: 1 month to 1 year

Pros: Great cable management
Beautiful RGB LED
Glass panels
Hefty & premium

Cons: Blemishes out of box, seems the factory doesn't do a good enough job with QA

Other Thoughts: I jumped on the hype train seeing this ultra-modern, sleek mac-ish case available for ordering on Newegg. I wasn't disappointed; it was every bit as good as I had expected.

I wish the factory Phanteks work with had better QA however.

The case I received had dusty rubber feet, it would seem someone had simply placed my case down on dusty ground.

The aluminum has some scratch and dents.

One of the thumb screws for locking in the glass panel wouldn't tighten all the way, leaving some room between the head and the panel.

I wasn't going to send the case back and wait 2 weeks or more for a replacement, but for $200 spent on simply the case, I was expecting aluminum finish on par with Apple products lol.

I guess I set my bar a tad bit too high.
