Pros: Solid power supply, lots and lots of cables for anything. Wires are wrapped in sexy mesh wiring, gives a nicer look to the cords and allows for more neatness.
Cons: If you don't need many wires then this isn't the power supply for you. But if that is the case, I doubt you need a 650W anyways... So I probably shouldn't even be writing these cons.
Overall Review: My little black box.
Lasted 6 weeks
Pros: I'm not really sure if there are any? I spent $115 on a power supply, it was noisy, and it broke in under 2 months of normal use.
Cons: Makes the WEIRDEST noises. Not loud, but not quiet enough to ignore! Absolutely infuriating. I bought it to replace a 7 yr old non-modular PSU with same 650 wattage. Was using computer under normal use and suddenly shut down. Tried jump starting PSU to no avail. Back to using an old Coolermaster non-modular 650w psu. Old faithful.

Pros: Very reasonably priced. A fair number of USB 3.0 and nice to have one 3.1a and USB C for the price. Straight forward BIOS GUI allows for easy OC/setup. No issues throughout the first year, knock on wood. Only have 2x8gb, never tried out other two DIMM slots. DDR4 runs smoothly at 3600mhz, didn't push it all the way to 4000mhz.
Cons: Onboard red LED cannot be turned off. Not POST LED, there is a separate GIGABYTE logo permanently lit. Even with most recent BIOS updates no change.
Pros: This case is extremely cool. It keeps my 8800GTS at 45C idle, and it barely ever goes over 60C overclocked when I'm running Crysis. The case actually does look pretty sexy with the blue LEDs, and it has tons of room for HDDs and disc drives. Also gotta love the 200mm fan. Tray and USBs on top are a plus.
Cons: Power supply is on the bottom... Cables are a mess, not much room to organize things.
Overall Review: It really is an amazing case and it can't be beat for $70...
