Pros: Stable, 80 plus platinum, truly fully modular, not over-sized (Standard ATX), flexible cables.

Cons: Not that I am aware of.

Other Thoughts: The real test of a product is when something goes wrong. I have had this unit for a few years, and a few months ago some of the cables were damaged in a move. I did not inspect it closely, so simply plugged it back up and it seemed to be running smoothly until I could smell a "plasticy" smell. What had happened was that the insulation between some of the leads had worn in some of the PCI-E, the cables had created a short, and melted the connector to the PSU proper.

Here is the thing, the PSU managed to control the over-voltage (due to the reduced resistance with ~constant load), not fry any of the components it was plugged into, and not fry itself (I tested each with a serial load tested using other cables).

I emailed Corsair Customer service about the issue and within 4 days I had replacement cables in my hand. None of the nonsense run around "we go through the seller" that I have run into with other PSU suppliers on this and other sites. They simply build a good product, and stand behind it.

So, even if this unit costs a little more than a similar competitor, I strongly recommend it. The true customer support speaks volumes in the value of it.

OCZ ARC 100 2.5

5 out of 5 eggs Great drive for an HP Laptop 07/09/2015

This review is from: OCZ ARC 100 2.5" 240GB SATA III MLC Internal Solid State Drive (SSD) ARC100-25SAT3-240G

Pros: Fast, affordable, reliable, 3 year manufacture warranty with actually support follow through (from my experience with other OCZ products).

I have two of these that I replaced HDDs in laptops - a HP Dv6-1259dx and an HP g6 series. After running these on relatively high use they still test 100% with no sector failures and mine actually beat their reported speeds.

Cons: Not quite as fast as the SSDs that cost 50%-100% more, but what can one expect?

Does not come with migration software,

Other Thoughts: The free cloning/migration software is good enough for most use cases. If you are doing this with win 8.1 though, make sure you make a recovery cd/usb first!

G.SKILL Ripjaws Z Series 32GB (4 x 8GB) 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM DDR3 1866 (PC3 14900) Desktop Memory Model F3-14900CL10Q-32GBZL

5 out of 5 eggs This memory rocks, and with this capacity you can set up a RAM drive 02/09/2014

This review is from: G.SKILL Ripjaws Z Series 32GB (4 x 8GB) 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM DDR3 1866 (PC3 14900) Desktop Memory Model F3-14900CL10Q-32GBZL

Pros: This memory is top quality. To be honest, i am surprised. I went with G. Skill rather then other name brands to save a little on 32GB of 1866 memory and these modules have run fast, cool and maintained their capacities.

Cons: If you know what you are doing, nothing.

As a note, however, especially with AMD motherboards with East-West mounted CPU coolers you may have a size problem with some coolers. Make sure you install the memory first and have the clearance.

Other Thoughts: This was installed on BIOSTAR TA990FXE AM3+ AMD 990FX with AMD FX-8350 and ARCTIC Freezer A30 Extreme CPU Cooler.

On this system some changes needed to be made in the bios to get it stable at 1866 (rather then simply changing the speed). It ran fine with the default 1600 speed.
