Confirmed dual graphics with 5800k

XFX Radeon HD 7750 1GB DDR5 PCI Express 3.0 x16 CrossFireX Support Video Card FX775AZNJ4

Pros: Works great for 1080p gaming while in dual graphics mode with an A10-5800k. BF3 plays on high/med settings just fine, but if you don't play many graphically intense games, this is all you need. I replaced a i7 860 and 6950. No regrets though much less powerful. However for the games I play the A10 setup is overkill. Plus I'm pulling hundreds of watts less from the wall.

Cons: None if you aren't expecting things that this card isn't made for

Overall Review: Oc'd to 900mhz core and 1250 mem.

For the money, amazing.

Pros: I'm using this with an overclocked I7 5960x and 2x 1080ti Founder's Edition video cards. I regularly pull 650+ watts from the wall and have never had any worries or issues with this power supply. The fan is very quiet, i can't hear it over the rest of the build. At idle or while doing anything other than gaming/stressing it, it is silent/off. They include all the cables you would need for an enthusiast build as well as excellent packaging with a cable pouch. I see a lot of 1 egg reviews for units that have failed quickly, that happens. For me, no issues at all from day 1. Absolutely clean and powerful power supply, even when benchmarking and pulling over 700w.

Cons: The only con i'd say is that you need an external dongle for the Corsair Link software. I'm sure this can be built in, but i can see why they would make it a dongle, for system builders or people who don't want to monitor the performance of their machine on a regular basis. It's not a big deal either way.

Overall Review: I'd recommend a built in dongle. At the current price, assuming you have a unit functioning properly and not one of the failed units, this is a no brainer. Best power supply i've ever owned. Great warranty.
