SeaSonic X Series X650 Gold ((SS-650KM Active PFC F3)) 650W ATX12V V2.3/EPS 12V V2.91 SLI Ready CrossFire Ready 80 PLUS GOLD Certified Full Modular Active PFC Power Supply New 4th Gen CPU Certified Haswell Ready

Pros: Packaging is beautiful. All the materials say quality.
Good layout for the modular plugs.
The modular cables themselves are flat ribbon style, which I like.
Separate modular cable for the primary ATX connection.
The fan seems to be high quality.
Has a switch for two different fan speed modes.

Cons: After being exposed to a heavier load (AKA gaming), the PSU makes a loud electric hum noise/squeal. My case is very quiet so this really stands out and is extremely irritating. After a few hours of idle running time the noise goes away.

Other Thoughts: Other than the noise there doesn't appear to be any problems. However the noise is obnoxious enough that it makes me want to RMA, which means I have to waste time putting my older Enermax PSU back in my case and rewiring my box.

I'm not an overclocker and all my components should be well serviced for a PSU of this size. When you spend this kind of money for PSU you hope it will be flawless.

3 out of 5 eggs Quality Components Terrible Features 12/18/2014

This review is from: Corsair Vengeance 2100 Circumaural Wireless Dolby 7.1 Gaming Headset

Pros: Quality components and construction. Very durable design. Very comfortable. Sound quality is excellent and microphone is good quality as well.

Cons: There is one single button on this device that powers on, powers off, and mutes on and mutes off. There is no audible notification that you have pushed the button for an arbitrary amount of time to mute it. Most Logitech headsets I've used allow moving the microphone up and down to mute and unmute and even they have an audible sound to let you know if you're muted or not.

Turning this device on and off is just as difficult because it's the same button, maybe you muted it? maybe you turned it off? no way to actually know because the LED just blinks randomly.

The velvet insulation on the earmuffs get really warm after long periods of usage and the whole headset is quite heavy.

The noise cancellation is almost useless as it picks up the majority of background sound, making it not a good choice for a standalone vent or teamspeak headset.

Other Thoughts: I've listed a lot of cons for this product and still give it 3 eggs because it seems really well built. Too bad they didn't spend a little extra time adding a few basic features.

TYAN S7052WGM5NR SSI EEB Server Motherboard Dual LGA 2011 Up to DDR3 1600

1 out of 5 eggs Dead After 3 Weeks 11/07/2014

This review is from: TYAN S7052WGM5NR SSI EEB Server Motherboard Dual LGA 2011 Up to DDR3 1600

Pros: Components appear to be decent quality. Decent spacing on the motherboard, good layout.

Cons: Powered our new server down and it never came back up.

Other Thoughts: The RMA process from TYAN is DREADFUL. The website is completely unusable and looks like it was made in the early 90s. When you call in to their support they make you jump through tons of diagnostic hoops and then advise you to use the website to make a ticket. You will never be able to make a ticket on their website because it is broken.

If I could give zero eggs I would. Don't buy from TYAN.
