This review is from: CORSAIR CX series CX430 430W 80 PLUS BRONZE Active PFC ATX12V & EPS12V Power Supply
Pros: RELIABLE! Price: a steal for a great basic build PSU. Silent fan and the length on the cables are just right.
Cons: Smaller cases may find the cables too long, and may be difficult to manage if cable management cut outs are not available.
Other Thoughts: Great price and trusted PSU. Corsair now makes a modular version of this PSU for a little more money. By far the best purchase for my basic build. If your graphics card needs more juice, trust Corsair. For the price, this is a great PSU, I have another brand in another build, but will purchase another Corsair (quite possibly this unit) to ensure length of life.READ FULL REVIEW
This review is from: MASSCOOL FDV12025L1L34 120mm Case Fan
Pros: Silent, even went not controlled by motherboard. Price is just right on these fans, and a steal with free shipping.
Other Thoughts: These fans have no LEDs and may not match your color scheme for your build. But they are by far the best available fan I can see out there. I currently have three in my case running silent, and will soon purchase more to add to my build as well as upgrade other desktops in my home. If you want LEDs, then good luck with that. Used these fans for my first build, and I have no regrets.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: For the price, this is your best option available. Plenty of room for a basic build with single graphics card. You can add a lot of fans in this case. Tool less drives and plenty of screws in case you need more than two HDDs. Available water cooler cut outs.
Cons: Does not come with any fans. When I removed the front face plate for DVD drive the power button wire came undone and had a scare thinking my board would not post. Tool less clips are only available for one media and two HDD drives.
Other Thoughts: Best case available if on a budget but still want quality. This case is easy on the eyes, as well as plenty of room. The no fans included is not really a con, you can purchase a few 12cm here on newegg for cheap. If you're the type of builder who likes unnecessary LEDs to brighten your entire build, this case won't show them off. But if you want a great case for the price, look no further. Do yourself a favor and save a few dollars by going with this case.READ FULL REVIEW
