Pros: -Quiet (completely silent for non-gaming)
-Amazingly high build quality
-Clean look (sleeved cables)
-Corsair Warranty (7 years)/Customer Support
This power supply is very impressive. The fan not needing to even spin at lower wattages keeps it perfectly silent when I am not gaming (and then it is still far quieter than my graphics card when I do game). It is instantly apparent that this is a high quality item. I have owned similarly priced power supplies in the past and this one tops them – easily. Even the appearance of the power supply is just outstanding. I like that the edges are slightly rounded, it seems to make it a bit easier to install – though I am not sure why that is the case. All-black sleeved cables will look good in pretty much any build. It is apparent from the product description, but I still like to point out that it is 80+ GOLD as I tend to only buy GOLD or better power supplies anymore. It is also worth noting that this PSU is fully modular – and well labeled so that it is easy to know which cable plugs in where on the power supply.
Corsair warranty and customer service is amazing (see Other Thoughts). Reviews from professional sites give this an extremely high rating (see Other Thoughts).
Cons: -CPU power cable may need extension in a full tower case
I initially tested this in a full tower case. I did have to use an extension to get the cord to reach if I wanted it routed behind the motherboard… which, who wouldn’t? At the same time though, the cord was about 2 inches longer than the cord of the power supply it replaced – and seems very slightly longer than most CPU power connectors that I have used. It would have been nice if it included an extension for this cord – so people with smaller cases don’t have a ton of extra wire but people with a full tower case don’t need to get one.
I always try to find some sort of con with even my favorite products. But honestly, it is hard this time. My major con is something that most people with a full tower case should generally expect with any power supply. The voltages were spot on through my tests (as they seem to be with everyone who reviews this product), the quality is there, and it is just amazing.
Other Thoughts: -I apparently had a lot to say about this product, and there is more!
I have dealt with Corsair Customer support on another product that had a faulty LED. They are fantastic. They offered (I did NOT have to even ask) to advance-ship the replacement so I could use the other one until it arrived AND to pay the return shipping of my defective product. I have never had a manufacturer offer to do this on the first inquiry. They do not give you the run around – they actually solve the problem and do it right. Past personal experience shows that Corsair stands behind their products. This product gets a major plus from me for the 7 year warranty it carries with it.
It is also worth noting when you check this power supply (or any power supply in the Corsair RMx series) on the sites that actually take apart PSUs, and check every little detail with equipment that is far more expensive than anything I own, that it has nearly perfect reviews. This is rare and a HUGE plus in my book.
I highly recommend this product. If you are looking for a power supply in the 750W range - then this should be one of the top contenders.
My cat claimed the draw-string bag that the power supply came in. He loves it. 5 eggs from him as well.
Pros: -Easy set up
First, this device was extremely easy to set up, it just took a couple minutes and it was ready to go – I am fairly confident that just about anyone could set it up by following the instructions. I have been using this in my home for nearly 2 weeks now, and it has not lost signal a single time – which is more than I can say for any other range extended that I have put in this exact same spot.
With this extender placed near the center of a 1400 square foot house, the signal stays at least a good quality signal throughout the entire house. This is on both the 2.4GHz and the 5GHz band. It is also nice that it does have dual band, so I can keep my phones/tablets on a different band than consoles/TVs.
Having the Ethernet port is also a nice touch. Good to have the option in case there are any devices without a wireless adapter that I want to use without dragging cables through my attic.
-Antennas have a fixed movement range.
-A bit bulky
I wish I could move the antenna in more directions than just up and down – but it is really not a big deal at all. For an extender that is meant to just be plugged into an outlet and stay there forever, it is a bit on the big side. It is not huge or anything, just a little bigger than I initially thought it would be. If plugged into the top outlet, then the bottom one will not be usable, however if plugged into the bottom outlet, it is easy to plug something in above the device.
I don't find either of these cons to be major issues at all, just my small gripes that I could think of while getting everything all set up and using the device.
Other Thoughts: This range extender seems to be a reliable one. Most range extenders I have used in the past have started to disconnect multiple times a day after the first week. This one has yet to disconnect a single time for me! It is also worth noting that it comes with a 2 year warranty. I have seen many similar devices with only a 1 year warranty - so I take that as a good sign.
I am impressed. The TP-LINK RE210 has been able to provide wireless to all my wireless devices (21 in total) without any issues at all for nearly 2 weeks now. I highly recommend this product to anyone looking for a range extender for their home.
Pros: -Booted with XMP at rated speeds
Went into the BIOS, loaded the XMP profile and it works flawlessly at the rated speeds. Test the memory with memtest - no issues, tested with Prime95 as well, it is great. I like the black heatsinks - they look nice.
Cons: -Lacks magical properties
None come to mind.
Other Thoughts: Very happy with this RAM. No issues, great looks, and great speeds all at a good price. Highly recommended if you are looking for an 8GB kit of DDR4 RAM!READ FULL REVIEW
