SeaSonic X-1250 Review

SeaSonic X-1250 ( SS-1250XM2 ) 1250W ATX12V / EPS12V SLI Ready 80 PLUS GOLD Certified Full Modular Active PFC Power Supply New 4th Gen CPU Certified Haswell Ready
SeaSonic X-1250 ( SS-1250XM2 ) 1250W ATX12V / EPS12V SLI Ready 80 PLUS GOLD Certified Full Modular Active PFC Power Supply New 4th Gen CPU Certified Haswell Ready

Pros: Extremely tight voltage regulation, very quiet operation even under OCCT! Highest quality construction, Japan high-end capacitors and components! A true enthusiast product that screams quality and true power without a hint of distress!

Cons: Seasonic provides long and short cabling for SATA and Molex, I wish there were more of both.

Overall Review: I first fired up my Seasonic X-1250 outside of my computer case to check it's proper operation, once I had everything going I was shocked that I couldn't hear anything from my Seasonic X-1250, not even the fan. The only thing audible was my Laing DDC 3.25 pump using a UN Designs pump mount with Gel Stuff at the base!! Even under OCCT it was still silent, if you were blindfolded you wouldn't know if the fan was spinning or not which it was! The build quality is truly high-end and exactly what you would expect from such a product! Those that are worried about coil whine don't be, there are just to many reviews between Ama and NewEgg for the X-1050 & X-1250 that if it were a problem it would have been reported by now.

GTX 480 Review

EVGA GeForce GTX 480 (Fermi) 1536MB GDDR5 PCI Express 2.0 x16 SLI Support Video Card 015-P3-1480-AR
EVGA GeForce GTX 480 (Fermi) 1536MB GDDR5 PCI Express 2.0 x16 SLI Support Video Card 015-P3-1480-AR

Pros: These GTX 480 Fermi's have a lot of hidden potential and overclock very well when chilled with a good water cooling system. My overclock on air @1.1v 850MHz Core/1700MHz Shaders/4400MHz Memory, I fully expect more when I slap on a Danger Den water block! With the drivers barely first generation (beta) I expect much more performance with future driver updates, also being able to have a combined overclock of 800MHz (150MHz Core/300MHz Shader/700MHz Memory) with little temperature increases is incredible to say the least!!

Cons: Heat will be an issue for those with most mid-tower cases, a full tower with lots or airflow is needed while using this card, if you live in a hotter climate steps need to be taken!

Overall Review: Coming from an 8800GTX this is a huge leap in performance for me, however I plan on buying one more so I will need a bigger more powerful PSU, I think the Galaxy Evo 1250W (104 amps) will do nicely! The water cooling industry must have a huge grin on their faces as these Fermi's shine under water cooling!

Exactly what I expected!

SanDisk Extreme 4GB SDHC UHS-I Flash Card - Class 10 30MB/S
SanDisk Extreme 4GB SDHC UHS-I Flash Card - Class 10 30MB/S

Pros: What I got was exactly what I expected, a very fast durable high quality 4GB flash storage device! Worked instantly with my FujiFilm F100fd, no more pausing when taking pictures with the F100's slow internal memory. I really like the complimentary travel case that holds both many flash cards and the Micromate card reader! Very satisfied with purchase, this is why I love coming to NewEgg.

Cons: Are you kidding?

Overall Review: If you want the best and fastest most durable flash card out there, then this is it! My whole camera seems faster now with this fast flash card, no more pausing after taking 4000 x 3000 pictures.

Excellent First Digital Camera!

FUJIFILM FinePix F100fd Silver 12.0 MP 2.7" 230K LCD 5X Optical Zoom 28mm Wide Angle Digital Camera

Pros: The pictures the F100FD takes are simply the best I have ever seen from a Point & Shoot digital camera! The movie playback is much better and smoother than I expected it to be with clean smooth video and good sound for being mono. Stores 57MB of pictures or videos without the need for a memory card, so if your wallet is pinched (like mine was) after the purchase of this high-end sports car of a camera, you can still take (368 pics @ 640x480) limited photos.

Cons: Battery life is not bad, just a little lower than most Point & Shoot digital cameras. The paper manual is junk, it is a must that you install the manual onto your PC (Adobe disc included) to fully understand what every setting does. Since the manual is on the disc that you get, I am not going to reflect this in my scoring of this wonderful camera.

Overall Review: I have done lots of research on this Pink Banding issue, my model was made in China (silver) and I have not been able to reproduce it. About the battery life, you want the performance of a sports car, you are going to pay for the it somewhere. The menus did take about an hour to flip through to fully understand how each setting effects your pictures outcome, but if you leave the F100FD in Auto mode with Auto ISO @400, all you have to do is point and shoot. I bought mine at Circuit City for $319.99, reason is because the Standard Return Policy wasn't a choice when I went to buy.

Excellent Quiet High CFM Part 2

Scythe S-FLEX SFF21F 120mm Case Fan
Scythe S-FLEX SFF21F 120mm Case Fan

Pros: Very quiet for how much airflow these fans put out, previously purchased two of these and back to buy three more. The review title says it all.

Cons: None at all!

Overall Review: I was sold two months ago on these High airflow very quiet high CFM fans, here to get three more because these S-Flex fans have no rival. I have enjoyed these almost completely silent fans and must change all my fans to these babies. If your the really picky type of person that will go to any length to silence your computer system, try the 1200RPM version of this fan.

Review of what might be the best PSU to date!!

ENERMAX INFINITI EIN720AWT 720 W ATX12V/ EPS12V SLI Certified CrossFire Ready 80 PLUS Certified Modular Active PFC Power Supply
ENERMAX INFINITI EIN720AWT 720 W ATX12V/ EPS12V SLI Certified CrossFire Ready 80 PLUS Certified Modular Active PFC Power Supply

Pros: This power supply is amazing, its CoolGuard feature is second to none. The PowerGuard actually works like a built-in surge protector. Solid stable power, very stable 12 volt rails. PCI-Express 2.0 ready.

Cons: Reviewers like the Guyver that is the only person in the world having a problem with electicity problems in his shaby made house, lol.

Overall Review: I reviewed this great PSU because The Guyver reviewed it twice with bad scores when he should have only reviewed it once, so this one should offset the one that shouln't have been. The Guyver should get a real house next time.
