Pros: I put this PSU in my system with a P67-UD4-B3 MB at the heart of the system with a OC'ed 2600k at 4.7+ ghz # 1.37volts with 8GB of Corsair Vengence DDR3 1600 2x4gb kit sporting 2 EVGA SC GTX560ti cards in SLI runnig at 1ghz core and 2400mhz memory with 1,075volts all mounted in a HAF922 Cooler Master case with every fan slot filled. so 1 140mm fan 6 120mm fans and the stock front 200mm fan. Still just using a H-50 corsair AIO water cooler with push pull 120mm fans. It is the only reason it is running at 4.7ghs instead of 5ghz + since I have a cherry of a chip that will do 5+ghz @ 1.45v but temps go over 70c and that break my rule of keeping my CPU under 70c at all times.
Now I upgrade my video cards at Christmas to 2 EVGA GTX 770 Classified 4GB cars with the ACX cooler and with Nvidias GPU boost 2,0 my primary card runs at 1258mhz on the core and my secondary card runs at 1225mhz on the core with no OCing. When I do Overclo0ck the will ruin at 1330+ mhz and 2000/8000 on the memory. Considering they use 2 8pin power connectors and I have yet to have to run the overclocked while gaming since I am running a 60hrtz panel and I use vsync I am waiting to purchase a new 34" LGUM95 21:9 3440-1440 resolution monitor I think I will wait till then to really push the cards by using a custom bios since the classified cards have 2 seperate bios settings ...normal.OC and LN2. since I will never use LN2 I will flas the new rom files to the LN2 setting then I can finally use a over the max of 1.2v the cards limit you to at without using a custom rom and the classified voltage tuner program. Also I purchased the SLI 770s over the 780s because they have 4gb of vram over the 3gb on the 780 cards @ the time of purchasing themand that 4 GB of vram is more future proof then 3gb of vram especially with the vram newer games are using. The TX850 powers everything with mo problem and I am pretty sure it was made by seasonic who has a very good reputatioin.
Cons: Not modular but I would not dare remove a egg since if you have a decent case like my HAF922 or something a little bigger there is plenty of space for a nice clean cable job. and the less connectors the less chance of loose connections. Example....for each video card you have a combination of 16 connections alone to each video card with some pushing some amps, if it was modular you would have another 16 connection at the PSU side of the cable X that by 2 then using modular cables for just the video cards alone you would have 32 extra connections that have the chance of being loose and causing heat points or loss of connections and more point for corrosionREAD FULL REVIEW
Pros: Plays BF3 and Crysis3 on medium settings with 50-65fps averaging 55fps.
Mine is installed in a gateway OEM h67 system with 6gb 1333 ram and a i3-2120.
Mine overclocks like a monster going fromm 800mhz on the core to 1200mhz!!! memory from 1125 to 1400!!! giving me a 3dmark 11 perf score of 3888points and 3dmark vantage score of 14148 The Vantage score is #1 paired with a 2120 cpu.
Other Thoughts: This card will run in any computer it will fit in regardless of the PSU since it uses only 45 watts maybeREAD FULL REVIEW
Pros: I bought 4 of these fans for my HAF 922 case 2 for the side panel that i mounted with the rubber fan nubs since its thin honeycomb steel i did not want any noise going from the fans to the side panel"note you will need strong fingers or needlenose pliers to pull the rubber nubs through" Plus i put 2 on my h60 120mm rad.they are completly silent up to 65% fan speed and at 100% they make a slight low pitched noise of moving air making them fantastic since the amount of air they push at 100%. Build quality is great bar none...as for 300,000hrs i do not think any fan will last over 25 years:)
Cons: A bit pricey but it is money well spent.
Other Thoughts: I have all 4 fans hooked to a fan controller and my controller on auto setting runs them at 40-50% speed and i cannot hear them. when i set my controller to manual they ramp to 100% for gaming and they are virtually silent and cannot be heard over my 560ti sli fans running at 1600rpms or 35%. Note the 560ti fans are silent until gamingREAD FULL REVIEW
