Major Power

Thermaltake Toughpower W0133RU 1200W ATX12V / EPS12V SLI Certified CrossFire Ready 80 PLUS Certified Modular Active PFC Power Supply GeForce GTX 480 Certified
Thermaltake Toughpower W0133RU 1200W ATX12V / EPS12V SLI Certified CrossFire Ready 80 PLUS Certified Modular Active PFC Power Supply GeForce GTX 480 Certified

Pros: 1200W!!, Biggest PSU out there. Modular cables, nice finish. You can really see the quality.

Cons: You get 3 6pin PCI-E connectors, 3 8pin PCI-E connectors, and 3 adapters to convert the 8pin to 6pin. I would have preffered 6 6pin connectors, or the 8 pin connectors that have two removable pins. If the 8pin to 6pin adapters were shorter it would remedy this. (they are about 6" long, and the PSU cable is already long enough)

Overall Review: This is a nice PSU, the nicest money can buy in my opinion. It looks great with no modding, can power a nuclear sub, and has enough connectors to feed my server.

OKGEAR is OK

OKGEAR 18" SATA 6 Gbps Cable, Straight to Straight W/ Metal Latch, UV Blue, Backward Compatible 3 Gbps and 1.5 Gbps
OKGEAR 18" SATA 6 Gbps Cable, Straight to Straight W/ Metal Latch, UV Blue, Backward Compatible 3 Gbps and 1.5 Gbps

Pros: Sata II 300gb/s transfer rate. Locking connector, uv reactive. What more do you want from a cable? You can't really find one cheaper either.

Cons: None, I sent mine back because I underestimated the length, and then reordered OKGEAR cables again. It was made with good quality.

Overall Review: 18" is a lot shorter than I estimated, I'd recommend getting a cable 2 sizes longer than what you estimate.

Not as hot as they say

AMD Athlon 64 FX-74 - Athlon 64 FX Windsor Dual-Core 3.0 GHz Socket F (1207 FX) 125W Processor - ADAFX74DIBOX
AMD Athlon 64 FX-74 - Athlon 64 FX Windsor Dual-Core 3.0 GHz Socket F (1207 FX) 125W Processor - ADAFX74DIBOX

Pros: 3000Mhz... AMD's Flagship Dual Core. Quad core capability.

Cons: Socket F 1207FX has no aftermarket. There are no watercooling options yet really, at least marketed ones. And the overall installation feels... awkward.

Overall Review: I don't have all the system parts, but I had enough to boot to bios and run it for 2 hrs. CPU and MB temp topped out at 47* celcius after 45mins and stayed that way for 2 hours. This was with retail boxed cooler, and 2 120mm case fans. Also, the boxed cooler was a very nice unit with 4 copper heat pipes in an aluminum heatsink with a silent fan (on max). I was using a very large open case, the ThermalTake Motzart Tx
