Pros: Modular is the only up side.
Cons: The power supply states that it is 535 Watts. I connected a new video card to the machine for Litecoin mining. I did use the calculators to make sure I had the needed power. Started at 50% power, and it was fine. Went to 55% power, shutdown. I confirmed it was all connected to the right cables, it was. Tried 2 more times to get above 55%. nothing. Borrowed a corsair 550W (yes 20 watts bigger) and it was fine at 100% power. So the power rating on the side is not the actual rating.
Other Thoughts: Cheap and does not get anywhere the power it should.READ FULL REVIEW
This review is from: Cooler Master Hyper 212 Plus - CPU Cooler with 4 Direct Contact Heatpipes
Pros: Been converting my DVD Collection to MKV files and had run my AMD FX-6300 (6 cores 95 Watts) non-stop of 3 days (100% CPU) and the system internal temp 38C and the cpu was 46 cpu. Motherboard was set to at 50C to up the fan speed. Never had to. If I manually up the fans, I could get 33c in case and 38 cpu. Super Cool for that work load
Cons: They make an EVO which has more copper on the heatsink but this is a good deal especially on sale with rebate. My son's PC is a Phenon II 6 Core 125 watts, when with the EVO on sale. (temps untested)READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: Good Card for mid to high level gaming. All games play at max setting at 1280x1024.
Cons: First card was dead and shipped to Asus for replacement, send back card with note that card was dirty. Sent me the same card and it failed in 2 days. Contacted Newegg and they sent me a new one and it was fine.
Asus is a pain but newegg made it right.
