Good power supply

CORSAIR CX-M Series CX750M 750W 80 PLUS BRONZE Haswell Ready ATX12V & EPS12V Semi-modular Power Supply
CORSAIR CX-M Series CX750M 750W 80 PLUS BRONZE Haswell Ready ATX12V & EPS12V Semi-modular Power Supply

Pros: Clean look when installed since this is a semi modular PSU. PSU is well built and does not feel flimsy or cheap. It came with a heavier duty cord that my factory dell machine came with. I also like the fact that it came with an abundance of cables for various hardware. The integrated motherboard and CPU power cables are the perfect length to be able to hide the out of sight on the back side of the case and then come back through and plug into the motherboard.

Cons: None what so ever.

Overall Review: I would buy this power supply again. I mean for the price your getting a quality product.

Awesome motherboard for the price!

Pros: Instruction guide is very informative when installing all the necessary cables required for various hardware and navigating all the BIOS settings. I also like that all the motherboard connectors are marked as to what they are. Comes with 3 SATA cables which is a plus not having to buy them.

Cons: So far I have not found anything.

Overall Review: For the price point, I think this a great motherboard. The only thing I would change is get rid of the white/blue sections on the board and replace it with a color that meshes better with the board base color. Also, I have read in past reviews about the I/O shield being a royal pain to install. I had very little issues installing mine. The hardest part for me was getting the shield installed into the case and trying not to bend it (which was not very hard at all. As far as guiding the I/O ports through the I/O shield, if you take your time and be patient it is very easy.

Not bad for a budget case.

Pros: The price you pay for this case and what you get is a good compromise in my opinion. The case cooling fans aren't noisy. Comes with a lot of extra screws for securing GPU's, HDD's, and SSD's. Motherboard standoff holes in case are marked for what form factor motherboard you are going to install. The green LED fans that come pre-installed look good when the system is running. The USB 3.0 socket on the front of the case is nice to be able to plug a memory stick into when transferring files. There is a mesh screen on the bottom of the case below where the PSU installs.

Cons: The instructions are on one page with just pictures with very little description of where components go but it is not hard to figure out. As stated before in a couple other reviews, the case comes with 6 motherboard standoffs already installed in the case and 2 more in the bag with the screws but an ATX mother board needs a total of 9.

Overall Review: All in all I would buy this case again. All that needs to be included as stated above is 1 more motherboard standoff and a set of instructions that are more descriptive. Other then that, this is a pretty decent case.
