This review is from: CORSAIR AXi series AX860i 860W Digital ATX12V / EPS12V SLI Ready CrossFire Ready 80 PLUS PLATINUM Certified Full Modular Active PFC Power Supply New 4th Gen CPU Certified Haswell Ready
Pros: Everything. quiet, modular, efficient, flatish cables, software.
the corsairLINK is way cool.
Cons: some of the cables were extremely hard to get in. the corsair link seems to sometimes cause my system to lock up.
Other Thoughts: I would buy this again for sure. no regrets.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: Stays somewhat cool even under load. usually very quiet untill the fans kick up. very low power draw. every game i have played auto detects max settings. single player CoD:AW maxed 1080p almost no lag.
Cons: When i first powered this card on, it locked on first load before bios. then again after fresh driver install. about this time i smelled what i can only explain as burning plastic and sulfur. I was getting weird lock ups in games where my display would either go black or freeze the image. teamspeak and game sounds still played and i could see my mouse movement. i ended up dedicating a rail off my PSU for each PCI-E plug.
Other Thoughts: I purchased with this card the Corsair AX860i. when i started getting the lock ups i tried old drivers, bios settings ect. a friend mentioned dedicated rails for each pci-e plug. i also disabled the corsairLINK software on boot and my lock ups went away.
If this issue stays away this card is a solid 5egg. card usually never gets over 69 degrees. some cool evga software and support.
keep in mind this card is massive. i have a ASRock Fatal1ty 990FX Killer AM3+ mobo and this card overhangs the board by about an inch or more.
Buy this card.
Pros: Very Large, moves a ton of air. noticed about a 5-10 degree change in temps from a traditional style case.
great cable management and enough room to fit my GTX 260 wich is a huge video card. very well built, seems very solid and little features that are nice like any place you need to use a screwdriver there are notches in the case for easy access.
Cons: you have to remove the top cover to remove the side pannels. I have 1 of the bottom fans that hits the plastic on the slide rail. The vent on the back for the PSU doesn't seem to line up with my PSU fan, most of it does but it seems they werent thinking about people running smaller PSU's (antec 750)
Other Thoughts: Very nice case, in the future I will buy more of these. as long as I get this fan replaced.READ FULL REVIEW
