PC Power & Cooling Fatal1ty Gaming Series 1000 Watt 80+ Gold Semi-Modular Active PFC Performance Grade ATX PC Power Supply (OCZ-FTY1000W)
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: more than 1 year

Pros: -Modular design is great
-Very quiet

Cons: -CPU cables are not long enough, I had to run it straight up over my GPU instead of behind the mobo like the rest of the cables in my HAF X case, I had to actually use the modular cable for an extra inch to get it to reach.

-Worked great for years with my GTX 680 but fails randomly with my modern, more efficent, lower power GTX 1080 FE

Other Thoughts: =Update=
After 5 years or so it was performing beautifully, until I upgraded from a GTX 680 to a GTX 1080... Now I'm experiencing the same problem as many of the reviews on here, it just instantly shuts down in the middle of playing certain games. The shutdowns don't seem to care what kind of load I put it under, It'll feed my 1080 while running GTA 5 at max graphics for hours but fail when I play other, less intensive games at even the lowest settings for under 5 minutes.

I'd read a lot of posts attributing the shutdown problem to a low quality/aged PSU but I wasn't 100% convinced until coming back and reading the reviews for this.

ZOTAC AMP! GeForce GTX 680 DirectX 11 ZT-60102-10P 2GB 256-Bit GDDR5 PCI Express 3.0 x16 HDCP Ready SLI Support Video Card
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: 1 day to 1 week

Pros: -Plays Skyrim on Ultra very well, actually too well.

-Cool and quiet
-Coolest looking card I've ever seen

Cons: -None

Other Thoughts: Skyrim has a bug where high framerates mess with physics and cause flickering, this can be fixed by using EVGA Precision X to limit your framerate to 100fps.

You can use V-sync to fix it as well but with V-sync on my framerate drops to 40 in some places(as opposed to 100+ without V-sync) and V-sync is just a silly option anyway, I've never understood how anybody can use V-sync with its input delay.
