Antec VP-450 450W ATX 12V v2.3 Power Supply - Intel Haswell Fully Compatible
  • neweggOwned For: 1 week to 1 month

Pros: As others have said got great reviews
very high efficiency for something not 80+ certified
good build quality
black ends on all power molex
wrapped mainboard atx 24 pin cable
thick enough power cord for a 450w psu
black circiut board for those who look inside it :) very good build quality in my opinion

Cons: came with a bag of chips but the weren't the flavor i wanted :(

some persons not a lot have received dead on arrival but when it works it works

for 30us u cant expect modular super quiet fans which were still not very audible

Other Thoughts: i have this in an antec 200 with an asrock 970 extreme 3
athlon 2 dual core 65w @ 3ghz
currently running a 110w 5770 sapphire vapor X soon to be changed to a 55w 7750 sapphire

bought to keep power consumption low and seems to be doing just that
most cheap psu's in this range will only give u a 50-70% efficiency thats not cool if ur in a country that has high power cost like me

G.SKILL PIS Series 4GB (2 x 2GB) 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM DDR3 2000 (PC3 16000) Desktop Memory Model F3-16000CL6D-4GBPIS
  • neweggOwned For: less than 1 day

Pros: low cl latency gives ram GREAT potential if ur overclocking expecially with i5 or i7

Cons: the 9 in the timings is a bit high if u could bring it down even to 8 on ur system u would gain great improvements to fully reap ur cl6 settings


Other Thoughts: i really wanted this ram was hoping for it to be around 160-180us bit i cant buy it now

SAPPHIRE Vapor-X Radeon HD 5770 DirectX 11 100283VXL 1GB 128-Bit GDDR5 PCI Express 2.0 x16 HDCP Ready CrossFireX Support Video Card
  • neweggOwned For: 1 week to 1 month

Pros: cooling is SUPERB style is wayy out there mine came with samsung mem modules

just love the blue light its absolutly HOTTT

Cons: came with 720 shaders as u figure the reason it gets 4 stars

support was more than there for it tho as it was simplified and easily fixed via using a flash drive or floppy if u had one

flash was simple and done automatically in the proccess after u typed a 1 word command into ms dos

Other Thoughts: flashed it with the asus bios instead to unlock speeds over 1ghz and am using it with an asus generic bios have been VERY happy ever since
