Corsair reliability

CORSAIR TX Series CMPSU-750TX 750 W ATX12V v2.3 SLI Ready CrossFire Ready 80 PLUS BRONZE Certified Active PFC Compatible with New 4th Gen CPU Certified Haswell Ready
CORSAIR TX Series CMPSU-750TX 750 W ATX12V v2.3 SLI Ready CrossFire Ready 80 PLUS BRONZE Certified Active PFC Compatible with New 4th Gen CPU Certified Haswell Ready

Pros: I have become a big fan of Corsair power supplies. This one is no exception. If you are planning to build an SLI system with multiple graphics cards and loads of storage, well, this power supply will last until you save the money for all your components, and years beyond that.

Cons: Like others have said, this thing has LOTS of cables, but read on...

Overall Review: I have an Antec 900 case, a mid-tower. The extra cables curl up nicely at the bottom of the case. I highly recommend a case in which the power supply is located at the bottom of the case! That way, cables aren't "hanging" from near the top of the case.

Good when free...

Pros: Good when they come with a 100% rebate.

Cons: About 50% coasters. Labels are not easy to write on and don't have much clear space for writing.

It is what it is.

Microsoft Windows 7 Ultimate 64-bit 1-Pack for System Builders
Microsoft Windows 7 Ultimate 64-bit 1-Pack for System Builders

Pros: It's Windows

Cons: It's Windows

Overall Review: I get more work done on Ubuntu Linux, and use Windows for games mostly, so it is what it is.

Fast, works.

G.SKILL Ripjaws Series 8GB (4 x 2GB) DDR3 1333 (PC3 10666) Desktop Memory Model F3-10666CL9Q-8GBRL

Pros: Works great out of the box, reliable as all the G-SKILL RAM I've bought has been. Good to buy as matched-set like this.

Cons: None really, except I can't see them from outside my case; the heat spreaders have nice artwork and machining.

Overall Review: Gigabyte P55 motherboard, Intel Core i5-750 Lynnfield 2.66GHz, Ubuntu 10.10 64-bit.

Nice scale, odd bowl.

Pros: It's a straightforward scale to use. Easy to wipe off and store in a drawer. Great for price.

Cons: Bowl it comes with doesn't snap onto scale platform and doesn't really work as a cover for the scale; inverting the bowl on the scale doesn't really cover the scale. Actually, the silly bowl won't sit evenly on the platform because of the lip on the bottom of the bowl. Maybe mine's got a defective bowl, but the scale works great without the bowl.

Overall Review: Use the bowl to feed your pets or something. Use the scale as, well, a scale.

3ware CBL-SFF8087OCF-05M 1 Unit of .5M Multi-lane Internal (SFF-8087) Serial ATA Breakout Cable

Pros: Correct cable for LSI MegaRAID SATA/SAS 9260-4i

Cons: None

Overall Review: As others have said, make sure you get the Forward cable if you need it, which is what this is; it connects the controller card to drives/devices.
