Pros: works with everything I got 2 PCI 3.0 slots looks great speedy sata 3 and usb 3.0

Cons: construction is a bit weird, doesn't fit properly to the case is the main problem. too many unwanted software that came with it

Decent

EDIMAX EW-7711USN N150 USB 2.0 High Gain Wireless Adapter
EDIMAX EW-7711USN N150 USB 2.0 High Gain Wireless Adapter

Pros: plug in, install drive and it works pretty fast

Cons: not the strongest signal if its just sitting on the computer on top of my desk USB extension cable is a little short but I can find my own later. if i get a longer cable then i can wire it to my bookshelf for better signal abysmally ugly and ruins my color scheme of my set up completely. wish it was black.

Rosewill RG630-S12 - Green Series 630-Watt Active PFC Power Supply Unit - Continuous @ 104 Deg. F (40C), 80 PLUS Bronze Certified, Single 12V Rail, Compatible with Core i7, i5

Pros: running smoothly so far nice mesh cables 80+ certified SLI-READY@@ sturdy build NO NOISE what so ever, my entire PC is soundless so far even though there's like 6 fans in it. GREAT price at 65$.

Cons: not modular but its cheap so... even though it's SLI ready, I doubt it can support 2 GTX 660's with just a 630 W PSU if you have optical drives or intense cooler other things that needs power I could use a few more molex connectors, even though I know I can hook my case fans to my mobo insteaad of the molex from PSU but still. wish it had like 3 more molex because I wanted to add extra case fans and LED lighting to my case (storm scout)

Overall Review: solid midrange PSU overall.
