Most Favorable Review

Perfect on a budget

APEVIA ATX-CB700W 700 W ATX12V / EPS12V SLI Ready CrossFire Ready Power Supply
APEVIA ATX-CB700W 700 W ATX12V / EPS12V SLI Ready CrossFire Ready Power Supply

Pros: Low-Price Quiet Fan (not Silent) Has Everything it needs

Cons: *Very stiff wires Comes wrapped in bubble plastic...that's it! A Little over ambitious

Overall Review: It's 700 watt power supply that's $40. I know the main rule for buying a PSU is "power-over-price" but this is a solid buy. Yes Apevia is mostly show with decent go but it's just as good as Antec and Rosewell PSUs I've bought and looks better. Plus for people with old top-mounting Cases it's perfectly positioned over most CPUs w/stock cooling for some extra chill. IF you have extra money to spend, consider getting something more high-end, but if you need a steal just to get you by for a little while this IS worth it. *About the stiff wires. I know the main connector always a little "stiff". makes sense. But this could almost hold it's shape, as well as the rest of the wires. At first it may seem like an advantage but since isn't modular and comes in bubble wrap, it takes some effort to separate the wires. I good cable management case is highly recommend.

Does what it's suppose to

Rosewill Computer Case - ATX Mid Tower - SECC Steel, Black - REDBONE
Rosewill Computer Case - ATX Mid Tower - SECC Steel, Black - REDBONE

Pros: Great Price Tool-less drive install LED Fan is a nice touch

Cons: Thin power/reset buttons. no cable management Flimsy build A little overambitious

Overall Review: For micro ATX setup the case does what it needs to. But it suffers from lack for cable management. There are cable "slits" but it looks cable and motherboard dependent. This case is great for the basics and gets the job done. But gets busy very fast.
