Pros: - Great price with rebate for a Plus Gold rated 1000w supply.
- Modular (even though this is basically the standard now, still love it cause I remember when it wasn't!)
- This PSU is considerably lighter and smaller in size than my last 1000watter
- Comes with case and rubber feet if you choose to mount externally
- Looks good
Cons: - Cables are a bit wide but it is the G1 model so if this bothers you buy the G2.
Overall Review: Bought a lot of PSU's over the years from very low quality to top shelf and EVGA always puts out great products. Unless there is great sale on another brand reputable brand, I will continue to buy their PSU's and graphics cards.
Pros: All sticks work flawlessly and the price is good as well. XMP worked without a hitch and so far Im happy.
Cons: As others said, your mobo may try and run at 1333mhz out of the box but that depends if you mobo needs an XMP profile to recognize higher speeds. Aka if your mobo mem support states 2133 (OC) in the specs so not really a real CON.
Pros: Great board with a ton of mem support options. I got a refurb model for like $80, when the retail is $175 you cant beat it at the price.
Cons: I have 1 SSD and 2 HDD's in my tower right now, the OS is on the SSD and i had some initial issues getting the BIOS to recognize my SSD every boot.
SSD is a Patriot Torx model for reference.
