EVGA 220-P2-1200-X1 80 PLUS Platinum 1200 W 10 yr Warranty ECO Mode Fully Modular NVIDIA SLI Ready and Crossfire Support Continous Power Supply
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 month to 1 year

Pros: -Quiet - the published specs make this one of the quietest, if not the quietest 1200W PSU's on the market. Even at full load, I cannot hear the fan running over my other components.
- Platinum efficiency.
- Cost. For the features and wattage, this PSU was a good value at $200.
- Supple, flexible cables which were easy to route.
- 10 year warranty

Cons: None.

Other Thoughts: I bought this when I upgraded to SLI EVGA 780Ti classifieds. I had an 850W unit that was sufficient until I overclocked the cards. Pushing the cards to 1.3V would trigger surge warnings and PC shutdowns during benchmarking applications. I decided that since I only buy a new PSU every five years or so, I would buy a high quality, high efficiency unit. I'm very satisfied with this PSU from EVGA.

Corsair Obsidian 750D Black Aluminum / Steel ATX Full Tower Computer Case
  • Owned For: 1 month to 1 year

Pros: Classy, clean looks, good cable management, lots of radiator mounting positions, good build quality.

Cons: -Poor airflow. Leaving the front panel on increases my coolant temperature 10 degrees C. The brushed aluminum panel looks great, but it is very restrictive.

-5.25" drive bays are riveted in. I would like them to be removable.

-Case sides are secured with thumb screws. My previous 750D had latches.

Other Thoughts: Honestly, I buy Corsair cases because I like their looks. I think for my next case I will shop around for one that looks good, but is a top performer also. If this case had a better vented front panel, it would be an all-star in my opinion,

NZXT RL-KRG10-W1 Sleeve Kraken G10 GPU Bracket
  • Owned For: 1 week to 1 month

3 out of 5 eggs A good idea, but flawed for overclocking. 01/19/2015

This review is from: NZXT RL-KRG10-W1 Sleeve Kraken G10 GPU Bracket

Pros: Limited my MSI 780 ti to 62 degrees C while at full load with corsair H55 and two Noctua fans in push/pull configuration. Temps were 76 degrees C with the air cooler.

Cons: Core and memory clocks were not able to be increased beyond the levels offered by the stock air cooler, despite the 14 degree reduction in max. temperature. I believe this is due to inadequate VRM cooling, although I never measured them.

Other Thoughts: After trying this, I purchased Swiftech's H-240X expandable AIO cooler, and a Koolance waterblock for my card. With the chip and the VRM being cooled, I gained +50 MHz on the core, and +125 MHz on the memory of the GPU, while max temp under load was reduced to 52 degrees C. All of this without adjusting the voltage on the card. This is a much better solution in my opinion.
