Most Favorable Review

Great PSU

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: Plenty of power, nice modular design. Looks, feels, runs like a quality product should. This product is hardcore power and it does not need sissy led lights to sell. Also this PSU is up to 87% efficient at normal load.

Cons: Its big, so do your research first, to make sure it will fit. It fit's nicely into my Antec 900. (not really a con but I had to put something here)

Overall Review: Im running two 9600 GT's, 2 dvd drives, an all in one drive a 350 gig harddrive lots of fans, Intel e8400 processor. More power than I need, but who knows what the future brings.

2 DOA's, Unbelieveable!!!!!!!!

ABS Tagan BZ Series BZ1100 1100 W ATX12V / EPS12V SLI Ready CrossFire Ready 80 PLUS Certified PipeRock type modular cable with colorful LED Active PFC Patent Piperock Modular Power Supply
ABS Tagan BZ Series BZ1100 1100 W ATX12V / EPS12V SLI Ready CrossFire Ready 80 PLUS Certified PipeRock type modular cable with colorful LED Active PFC Patent Piperock Modular Power Supply

Pros: The pictures look good.

Cons: THIS powersupply is the CON...It's made in CHINA...There is no quality control. This is my second DOA, I have no more time to spend on ABS. I will find another Powersupply from another Company who is serious about their powersupplies.

Overall Review: Take the time to read all the manufacturer responses for the BZ series powersupplies, it's always something else that caused it to fail never their products fault. Makes me laugh.

Pros: Quiet fan, compact and light weight (compared to some of the anvils available) easy to install--somewhat. Does the job and does it well. Don't have to remove your Motherboard to install.

Cons: It's a little difficult to install, just gotta work at it a little.

Overall Review: Im running an intel e8400 overclocked to 3.6ghz. 780i motherboard 1200w thermaltake toughpower Corsair 8500c5d Antec 900 Cooling is not a problem whatsoever cpu temps are 85 degrees/ ambient air temp at 65 degrees.

Antec 900 Great Case

Antec Nine Hundred Black Steel ATX Mid Tower Computer Case with Upgraded USB 3.0
Antec Nine Hundred Black Steel ATX Mid Tower Computer Case with Upgraded USB 3.0

Pros: The airflow is second to none, 200mm fan on top is perfect for removing heat. The case construction is of excellent quality. Lot's of different options with fans and drive bays. Holes predrilled for cable management along side of motherboard. even has a place on top to put my beer, very cool. Powersupply vibration eliminator pads on bottom of case. easy to use thumb screws to access case and or remove drives. The list goes on and on...

Cons: the power button, restart cables could be a little longer like about 3 inches or so to enable enough room to tuck away to keep appearances nice and neat. Otherwise this case is darn near perfect, it worked out great for me.

Overall Review: I'm running an evga 780i mb, 2x 9600gt cards, 2x dvd drives, Intel e8400 cpu with Artic cooler pro 7, Thermaltake toughpower W0733RU (I had no problems with cables reaching connections on MB) 1x 3.5 all in one drive and all the fans the case can carry, about 6. All of this fits neatly into the Antec 900 with room to spare and excellant airflow. So much airflow in fact, I believe if my cpu cooler fan gave out I might be able to get by until a preplacement fan arrived. GREAT CASE and GREAT PRICE!!!!!!!!

DOA

ABS Tagan BZ Series BZ1100 1100 W ATX12V / EPS12V SLI Ready CrossFire Ready 80 PLUS Certified PipeRock type modular cable with colorful LED Active PFC Patent Piperock Modular Power Supply
ABS Tagan BZ Series BZ1100 1100 W ATX12V / EPS12V SLI Ready CrossFire Ready 80 PLUS Certified PipeRock type modular cable with colorful LED Active PFC Patent Piperock Modular Power Supply

Pros: I bought it through Newegg.

Cons: I expected more from this HIGH END power supply. This part arrived DOA and set my build back several weeks!!! With that kind of price I would expect some quality control. DOA is NOT acceptable!!! With the great reviews this power supply received I did not expect this at all, what a let down. Someone else said it first...no matter the review, price or the manufacturer in the end you're taking a chance.

Overall Review: I have a computer full of components that need to be tested, but no powersupply to test them so I wait and wait and wait. Thanks Newegg for RMAing this for me and for supplying this site and service.
