EVGA SuperNOVA 1600 P2 220-P2-1600-X1 80+ PLATINUM 1600W Fully Modular EVGA ECO Mode Includes FREE Power On Self Tester Power Supply

Pros: Tons of power Eco Mode Modular Can order colored/braided cables (but they cost)

Cons: None

Overall Review: You can get extra cable sets that are colored and braided, but the are about 90.00 a set This supply is a little longer than the average, maybe 2cm or so, just enough you might have a hard time mounting in a smaller case. In my Corsair 900D obsidian case it was no issue

seagate drives JUST say NO

Seagate BarraCuda LP ST32000542AS 2TB 5900 RPM 32MB Cache SATA 3.0Gb/s 3.5" Hard Drive Bare Drive

Pros: large storage, reasonable price

Cons: bought 2 drives for a raided nas system about 4-6 weeks 1 drive started clicking (know what that means). S.M.A.R.T. errors. now I have to rma the drive lucky for me I just backed up the nas to move everything over to a new server. of course all data is gone because I didnt use a parity drive

Overall Review: Alot of bad reviews on this drive about 50% failure rate seems all the HD makers out there are having trouble or just being extremely cheap with there internal parts

Amazing Value

Rosewill 1600W Modular Gaming Power Supply, Continuous @ 50  Degree C, 80 PLUS GOLD Certified, SLI & CrossFire Ready - HERCULES-1600S
Rosewill 1600W Modular Gaming Power Supply, Continuous @ 50 Degree C, 80 PLUS GOLD Certified, SLI & CrossFire Ready - HERCULES-1600S

Pros: NICE and neat I have a 1600w EVGA as well and paid WAY more for it General build and accessory pack are on par with it if you building a new gen system with high end video cards this is what you should be looking at if you dont want to waste money on a name

Cons: The only con I have with the power supply is that the main power for the motherboard is not modular also I know thats nit picking and I feel it didnt warrant removing a error but if the main motherboard power was modular this thing would be PERFECT

Overall Review: Recommend to everyone machine has been on almost 24/7 since I got it installed with zero issues

Pros: its fast cost is starting to come down "SOME" Bios on my Gigabit DesignwareX MB picked it up with no issue for a boot drive

Cons: Would still like to see cost come down some more

Overall Review: Mirrored my SSD to it and booted my OS from it without a problem seems to work fine I really cant see a speed difference between it and my Samsung EVO ssd for casual use Will do some real testing soon

Pros: lets you use display port with a hdmi device

Cons: Shipper waited 7 days to ship according to tracking info

Overall Review: I only deducted 1 egg because if you give to bad a review Newegg will not allow it to be posted you can get this item cheaper and faster

gigabye designare ex mother board

GA-X99-Designare EX Configurator
GA-X99-Designare EX Configurator

Pros: Made by Gigabyte plenty of options worked with my i-7 6950x processor right out of the box no firmware updates needed

Cons: does not have a esata port very minor thing but when you have a few external estata devices it makes you think

Overall Review: could use a few more usb ports but a 19.00 card from newegg will give you 5 external usb3.0's and 2 internal via 20pin header guess I could have disconnected some of the from usb ports on my corsair 900D case as it does have quite a few
