CORSAIR HX Series HX1050 1050W ATX12V / EPS12V SLI Ready CrossFire Ready 80 PLUS GOLD Certified Modular Active PFC Power Supply New 4th Gen CPU Certified Haswell Ready
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: 1 week to 1 month

Pros: High wattage

Cons: Excruciating and painful noise when under load. I first noticed it when I did a benchmark. The noice coming out of this thing is as horrible as the sound of all your nightmares coming to life via a newborn child hunting you. It is the same as described by other users. I am very displeased by this product and might never buy a corsair PSU ever again.

Pros: Robust computer
Good looking
Well thought and well built
Pretty good performance for the buck AND for a laptop
Good heat management
Good battery life
No wear and tear visible after over a year of intensive usage

Cons: -Comes with windows 8 without the hability to make a back-up media. I even tried to call/chat with asus and windows... All I could do is buy the back-up dvds and get them delivered by windows for 30$
-Looks like a macbook
-Had to send my first one back since the GPU was somehow lacking in performance. The one I got after that RMA was all good.
-Can't change RAM without removing the entire plastic cover (not just the HDD/RAM cover, partially blocked by the remaining cover)
-dvd-drive cover sticks out by about 3/4 of a mm

Other Thoughts: Was a good choice for a laptop

G.SKILL 8GB (2 x 4GB) 204-Pin DDR3 SO-DIMM DDR3 1600 (PC3 12800) Laptop Memory Model F3-12800CL9D-8GBSQ

Pros: I bought them to replace my 4+2GB native RAM in my S56CM and they run pretty smoothly. Did many memtest and no problems so far. They don't seem to heat anymore than the previous either.

Cons: none so far
