Nice buy

Tuniq Ripper PSU-RIP1000W-BK 1000 W ATX12V / EPS12V SLI Certified CrossFire Ready 80 PLUS BRONZE Certified Active PFC Power Supply
Tuniq Ripper PSU-RIP1000W-BK 1000 W ATX12V / EPS12V SLI Certified CrossFire Ready 80 PLUS BRONZE Certified Active PFC Power Supply

Pros: Inexpensive, high wattage PSU (assuming the rebate gets honored). I got this as a backup, which is currently being used as my primary and have to say nice and quite, and consistent power.

Cons: Few people need 1000 watts, so this could be bad for my electric bill, but supposedly has good efficiency. Fan stays on for about a minute after shutdown, but that's probably a pro as it is a sign of the capacitors hold.

Overall Review: At this price it was a really good deal. Now I just hope it doesn't break.

DON'T COUNT ON THAT REBATE

Pros: I suppose it's still working

Cons: As far as the PSU goes no complaints but service with the company is terrible, so hope this psu never breaks. Sent in a rebate form back in July and patiently waited for the check. Still nothing, so naturally I emailed them. And absolutely NO RESPONSE, who wants to do business with a company that just ignores you not even a shake off. Screw this company and others that do business this way.

Fine case

Pros: Good, cheap case. One of few that can hold 2 HDD's and an optical drive.

Cons: Terrible cable management, especially if you are putting in an ide drive. Had to cut the zip tie around the PSU to get my optical drive to fit as the molex connector and the PSU out where running into each other.

Overall Review: This could be really nice if you drop the PSU and get a pico, although I don't know if your HDD would then fit with the way the system is set up. If you know how to Mod then get his case and have some fun as the cooling is not great.
