Pros: Ultra Slim Form Factor, Intel Based PC, Quiet, 4gb RAM
Cons: 1st one was DOA, Refurbished, does not perform well. Power supply is external and large.
Other Thoughts: This is the ultra slim formfactor. It is basically a laptop mobo with a desktop cpu. It has no room for upgrades. It uses SODIMM DDR2 RAM and 320gb 2.5 inch HDD(Laptop HDD's are slow). Q35 chipset is dated and does not perform well. You should also know that this model is plagued with problems after minimal research revealed much information, I should have stayed away. I wanted it for its compact size and specs to use as a media machine as my Acer Aspire could no longer do the job neither could this. It struggled with youtube. Netflix and 4mazon Prime played ok. If all you want to do is browse the web or do homework this PC is good for that. It will not game as its Q35 Chipset lacks severe video processing power. I would not recommend this PC to anyone due to its low specs and high price. There are 2 markets for PC consumers, Enterprise(highest) and Consumer(lowest). Enterprise grade technology is built a bit more rugged. They are made to withstand long uptimes and heavy loads. They are a higher quality device but the price is also higher. For what this is you can get a better consumer PC on paper.READ FULL REVIEW
This review is from: Diablotek DA Series RSDA350 350W ATX12V Power Supply
Cons: Weak. Did not last. Failure rate to high. Poor support.
Other Thoughts: We had a bunch of these as back up PSU for our lab computers at the school I interned at. We installed a few of these when needed as our PCs were donations since it was a public school. Before we did our new PC deployment. Out of the many I installed in our old wore out PCs they ran hot the fans failed and some just quit. One had a capacitor pop. Scared the heck out of the lab teacher haha. Buy this with caution.READ FULL REVIEW
This review is from: Rosewill RX850-S-B - Xtreme Series 850-Watt Active PFC Power Supply - Continuous @ 104 Deg. F (40C), 80 PLUS Bronze, ATX 12V v2.2 & EPS 12V v2.91, SLI & CrossFire-Ready, Compatible with Core i7, i5
Pros: Dual rails. Solid. Never had an issue with this unit since I have had it. Has been through 2 builds. ALOT of connectors. Cords are wrapped for a clean look and wire placement.
Cons: Not really a con but,only recently has the LED's on the fan started to flash. Fan still running steady. Not Modular. had to tuck the extra cords under the drive bays.
Other Thoughts: First build powered:
Foxconn A7GM-S Micro ATX AMD Motherboard
AMD triple core 2.8Mhz
3 Seagate Barracuda 500Gb drives
Nvidia 8800 GTS OC Upgraded to a GTX460
AMD FX8320 8 core
GTX570(Sorry cant afford another one of those so no SLI tested)
3Seagate 500Gb HDDs. Now on a 250Gb ssd and a 640 WD Blue
This unit has stood the test of time and what little torture I have put it through. My case does not vent the PSU very well and yet it keeps on chuggin.
I would buy this again. In fact I did buy a Rosewill Xtreme Series RX750-S-B 750W and it has proven to be a stable PSU as well.
