Awesome PSU

CORSAIR RMi Series RM850i 850W 80 PLUS GOLD Haswell Ready Full Modular ATX12V & EPS12V SLI and Crossfire Ready Power Supply with C-Link Monitoring and Control
CORSAIR RMi Series RM850i 850W 80 PLUS GOLD Haswell Ready Full Modular ATX12V & EPS12V SLI and Crossfire Ready Power Supply with C-Link Monitoring and Control

Pros: Great warranty Long cables Modular Design Corsair link Gold certified Good price the quality Comes with PSU bag, cable bag, case badge, black screws, zip ties Quality construction

Cons: Large Size Can run a little warm Corsair Link requires a motherboard USB header.

Overall Review: For the price this PSU is a great deal, not only because it will provide enough power for almost any setup, but because it is built to last out of quality part. The cables being a little longer allow for easier cable management in mid and full tower cases. In addition the modular design insures that only the necessary power cables are used in your case. Under silent operation the PSU can run a little warm but under load that fan will kick on and is still very quiet.

Most Critical Review

Good Camera

TP-LINK TL-NC220 Wireless Day / Night Surveillance Home Security Camera Motion & Sound Detection 300 Mbps Wi-Fi Expansion
TP-LINK TL-NC220 Wireless Day / Night Surveillance Home Security Camera Motion & Sound Detection 300 Mbps Wi-Fi Expansion

Pros: Easy Setup Day / Night WiFi and Ethernet Built in mic Lightweight Good mounting options Long power cable

Cons: No POE Not suitable for outdoor use, no weather seals on power adapter Required to be near a power outlet

Overall Review: While not all together bad this camera could be better. The image quality is about what you would expect from some thing around the price point. Not not great, but not horrible. My major gripe with this camera is that it has no support for Power Over Ethernet. For me this is a major buzzkill as it requires the use of the power cable and a power outlet to be with in reach. This limits the places you can mount the camera and increases the number of cables needing to be managed from the camera. Overall this is a nice camera to just throw in a corner of a room especially for the price.

Best bang for the buck

CORSAIR RMx Series RM750X 750W 80 PLUS GOLD Haswell Ready Full Modular ATX12V & EPS12V SLI and Crossfire Ready Power Supply
CORSAIR RMx Series RM750X 750W 80 PLUS GOLD Haswell Ready Full Modular ATX12V & EPS12V SLI and Crossfire Ready Power Supply

Pros: Fully Modular Quiet Fan Great cabling Good labeling Sleeved cables Comes with cable ties High build quality

Cons: Eight pin CPU power cable may be short for some builds

Great quiet fans

Fractal Design Venturi HF Series Black Fluid Dynamic Bearing High Airflow 120mm Case Fan
Fractal Design Venturi HF Series Black Fluid Dynamic Bearing High Airflow 120mm Case Fan

Pros: High Flow Very Quiet Braided cable Vibration-dampening corners High build quality Comes with low noise adapter

Cons: None thus far

Overall Review: Picked up a few of these fans for my system and they are great. The fans even at 100% are not all that loud, but with the low noise adapter, I hear hardly any thing in my antec 300. The rubber mounts are also a great addition to help reduce vibrations. These fans also move a good amount of air with the low noise adapter installed. I wouldn't hesitate to purchase these again.

Awesome quiet fan

Fractal Design Venturi HP Series Black Fluid Dynamic Bearing High Pressure PWM 120mm Radiator/Heatsink Optimized Fan
Fractal Design Venturi HP Series Black Fluid Dynamic Bearing High Pressure PWM 120mm Radiator/Heatsink Optimized Fan

Pros: High pressure Very Quiet Braided cable Vibration-dampening corners Comes with 4 pin PWM splitter High build quality

Cons: None thus far.

Overall Review: Used two of these fans in push pull on my 212 Evo and was amazed at how quiet both were at 100% speed. I can hardly tell when my fans jump up to 100% speed. Adding to help quiet the fan are the rubber mounts that absorb a lot of vibration. The cables are also some thing to note, instead of just being just your standard 4 conductor flat wire they protected the wire with a plastic braid and used heat shrink tubing to secure the ends. Also included is the 4pin splitter or Y adapter allowing you to plug in two fans into a single four pin PWM socket. I would absolutely buy these again.

Good Board

ASUS Z170-PRO LGA 1151 Intel Z170 HDMI SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.1 USB 3.0 ATX Intel Motherboard
ASUS Z170-PRO LGA 1151 Intel Z170 HDMI SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.1 USB 3.0 ATX Intel Motherboard

Pros: USB Type C Thunderbolt headers PWM chassis fan DisplayPort 1.2 M.2 4x Socket

Cons: PCI express slots share bandwidth. The third PCIe 3.0 shares bandwidth with two of the SATA III ports by default. Only two actual fan headers

Overall Review: Overall the Z170-Pro makes for a good board.
