EVGA SuperNOVA 850 G2 220-G2-0850-XR 80+ GOLD 850W Fully Modular EVGA ECO Mode Includes FREE Power On Self Tester Power Supply
  • neweggOwned For: 1 month to 1 year

Pros: Modular cables are EXTREMELY HANDY. Made my life and cable management so much easier.
Voltages are very stable, I'm able to overclock well and reach the lowest c-states with my 4770k.
Reliable up til now, has plenty of room for me to expand my computer

Cons: None.

Other Thoughts: Current Build:
ASUS Maximus VI Hero w/ i7-4770k
Corsair 2x8GB 1866 DRAM
Corsair H80i CPU Cooler
Antec 900 Mid-Tower

I plan to throw in another 770 someday (probably during thanksgiving or December when sales are abound) and I have no doubt it will be easy to integrate it given this PSU.

Antec Nine Hundred Black Steel ATX Mid Tower Computer Case with Upgraded USB 3.0

5 out of 5 eggs Great Case but Tight Fit 06/20/2014

This review is from: Antec Nine Hundred Black Steel ATX Mid Tower Computer Case with Upgraded USB 3.0

Pros: Everything fits. No worries on having a GPU that is too big, even a 780GTX will fit.
Stock cooling is already pretty good. Has a VERY USEFUL case fan slot built right behind the front fans for PCI cooling (BARELY fits with my 770GTX, but it is removable if you run out of room).
Existing cable management is sufficient.
Easy to setup.

Cons: The case is literally millimeters away from being ideal. It should be about 2 or 3 millimeters wider to allow for guaranteed usage of the side fan slot.
One of the stock case fans is slightly faulty: The built in RPM monitor lasted maybe 2 days before it stopped reading, but the fan still works great otherwise.

Other Thoughts: I managed to fit everything in here including a Corsair H80i CPU cooler. IT WILL FIT, but it will restrict your usage of the side fan slot. If you get a small enough sleeve fan, you can fit it.

CABLE MANAGEMENT: I said it was sufficient, but it can get out of control rather quickly with this case. Plan things out well and clear out as many cables as possible before moving in the next part, otherwise its a birds nest.

  • neweggOwned For: 1 month to 1 year

Pros: Very powerful out of the box. Works as advertised and have been able to run most everything on Ultra.

Cons: None yet *fingers crossed*

Other Thoughts: I use MSI's Afterburner software to overclock my gpu. Works well without much heat increase. My GPU outperformed the norm in the Furmark benchmark without having overclocked it. I caught my GPU on sale for $299, but not everyone can be so lucky.

Note: I ran into issues with Metro Last Light, but those were caused due to some sort of driver conflict that occurred during Metro's first launch (from steam). Reinstalling PhysX drivers fixed the issue and put me back on the highest possible settings.

My Build:
ASUS Maximus VI Hero w/ i7-4770k
PNY Nvidia 770GTX 2GB VRAM
Corsair 2x8GB 1866 DRAM
Corsair H80i CPU Water Cooler
Antec 900 Mid-Tower
