Pros: Good price for a 750G drive. WD is usually pretty reliable.

Cons: I ordered 4 of these from Newegg the last time they were on sale. 1 was DoA and sent back to Newegg, which took a month to replace. As soon as that drive was returned, a second drive died. I had the second drive swapped by WD, who only took a week to replace it. The drives from Newegg were manufactured mid-2007 and the one from WD was less than 1 month old, which means they were probably sitting around in a warehouse somewhere or it was a bad batch of drives.

Overall Review: Make sure you download the drive diagnostics tools from WD and thoroughly test these drives before trusting them with your data.

Athena Power AP-U2ATX80FEP8 20+4Pin 800W Single 2U IPC Server Power Supply - 80PLUS Bronze

Pros: It turned on

Cons: DO NOT try to use this with an Asus Z10PE-D16 board! The 4-pin and 8-pin mother board power connectors are on the same cable from the power supply. The connector from the 8-pin to the 4-pin is about 3 inches long and will not reach to the 4-pin connector on the motherboard so you cannot use both at the same time, which is the whole point of the psu. Whoever designed this was an idiot.
