CORSAIR RMx Series RM750X 750W 80 PLUS GOLD Haswell Ready Full Modular ATX12V & EPS12V SLI and Crossfire Ready Power Supply
  • neweggOwned For: less than 1 day

Pros: - fully modular
- great efficicency for gold
- low noise
- great price/performance

Cons: - all pci-e cables are "daisy chained" so if you have a single gpu system with a single connector there will be an unused connector and short cable to clean up

Other Thoughts: this series is the third based on the platform the HXi is built on. this one loses corsair link functionality and uses a rifle bearing fan instead of the FDB on the RMi/HXi units, but brings corsair back as a price/performance champion in high end power supplies. the RMx 750/850/1000 match the price/performance of EVGA's well regarded G2 series.

CORSAIR RMi Series RM1000i 1000W 80 PLUS GOLD Haswell Ready Full Modular ATX12V & EPS12V SLI and Crossfire Ready Power Supply with C-Link Monitoring and Control
  • neweggOwned For: 1 day to 1 week

Pros: - in cable capacitors for enhanced ripple supression
- quiet operation, even when fan is on
- 7 year warranty
- 100% japanese caps
- price vs the competition

Cons: none

Other Thoughts: this psu series is an upgraded, yes, an improved version of the HXi units that cost more. those have higher efficiency, mostly good for marketing than real world use, but this has all japanese caps, even on the modular pcb and type 4 cables to make up for the lack in efficiency. this unit comes with better sleeved cables as with the in cable capacitors the standard (and cheap) ribbon cable isn't viable. this unit is priced even or withing $10 of EVGA's 1000G2, another psu with in cable capacitors and excellent ripple supression. the main difference is the package. the 1000G2 has no hybrid fan mode, bright red pci-e cables and a loud fan profile (the 1300G2 as well). this unit is a better buy, although you get a 10 year warranty with EVGA that is also transferable if you sell or give away the psu. this is Corsair's most competitively priced psu as the rest of the EVGA GS/PS and G2/P2 lineup is just dominating the market from a value for dollar perspective.

saw an eggxpert review from Jeremy S. just an FYI, this unit uses a better type of cable with capacitors in the cables, so the sleeving on the HXi and other Corsair psus is the cheaper ribbon type. using cables from another series of Corsair psu on these means that the ripple and vreg perform exactly like the HXi series, so this becomes simply a less efficient version.

be quiet! PURE ROCK CPU Cooler - 150W TDP
  • neweggOwned For: 1 day to 1 week

5 out of 5 eggs best budget cooler overall 03/16/2015

This review is from: be quiet! PURE ROCK CPU Cooler - 150W TDP

Pros: looks good
very quiet under load
easy installation
high quality fan

Cons: will block first ram slot

Other Thoughts: saw two negative reviews from the same user. this product is rated for 150w TDP. AMD FX cpus will pass that heat threshold easily if overclocked. be quiet typically have treated AMD as an afterthought as a couple of their other coolers only mount sideways on socket AM3+. ultimately this and other budget coolers won't be enough for an overclocked FX. you need the best vrm and coolers to support them and that's the reality so many buyers overlook. this cooler is a bit smaller than the 212 EVO and much quieter. it beats the corsair H60 too. great budget cooler for intel socket 1155.1150. for AM3+ and socket 2100/2011-3 you want to get something more expensive.
