Pros: It actually is a nice power supply, when the fan isn't running !!
Cons: Unbelievably loud fan noise. The Ong Hua HA1425H12B-Z fan Corsair decided to put in this power supply is of very poor quality and insanely loud. You can't even find a data sheet on this fan so who knows what kind of sweat shop it came out of. Once I saw just how subpar this fan was, I voided my warranty and tried to replace the HA1425H12B-Z with a Noctura NF-A14 FLX, Noctura NF-A14 PPC-2000 and a Noiseblocker NB-BlackSilentPro PK3 to no avail. The problem is the high quality fans require at least 4.5V to run while the HA1425H12B-Z will run on as little as 3V. This means this power supply was designed specifically for this cheap fan and never intended for a quality fan from a reputable company.
Other Thoughts: I've owned Corsair power supplies in the past but the bitter disappointment in the HX750 will have me looking else where for my next power supply.READ FULL REVIEW
This review is from: Corsair Carbide Series 300R Windowed Black ATX Mid Tower Case
Pros: Very sturdy with lots of cutouts for cable routing. No sharp edges on any of the metal. The stock Corsair fans, one 140mm in the front and a 120mm fan in the back, are fairly quiet. Very good airflow for a case this size. Both side panels are removable so routing cables and installing components is extremely easy.
Cons: A couple of more USB connectors on the front panel would be nice. Documentation was a little nebulous and nothing regarding how to remove the front panel by just pulling it from the bottom; I found that out by watching a YouTube video.READ FULL REVIEW
