CORSAIR TX Series CMPSU-750TX 750W ATX12V v2.3 SLI Ready CrossFire Ready 80 PLUS BRONZE Certified Active PFC Compatible with New 4th Gen CPU Certified Haswell Ready

Pros: Made by the same guys who made my H60...they did a good job with that at least.

Cons: This power supply did its job for two years then it went crazy. There is nothing more irritating than troubleshooting a intermittent power loss in your system. In the end, after ruling out all the other components of my system, I took the desperate measure of swapping PS with another, and low and more problems. Two weeks, a volt-meter purchase, and numerous headaches later I can say that this PS is the cause of my system instability. Yay! And now lucky me I can pay for shipping to replace it...I am so thrilled...Thank you Corsair. Its a PS, it does a very simple thing...power....get it right next time.

Pros: This card is very powerful and cool.....when it is working.

Cons: I have had this card for just about two years now. Up until today i was very happy with it, in fact I was just a few weeks away from getting a second one for SLI. Sadly today happened though....One of the fans started making a weird noise, I investigated and saw that it was struggling to spin... probably a bearing issue I thought, but i nonetheless hoped that cleaning the dust out would help. There wasn't alot of dust but i figured it was worth a shot. After the cleaning, the fan spun up for a few minutes then stopped completely...a few minutes later the video signal stopped and the card has not worked since.

Other Thoughts: I bought this card because I assumed it had a superior cooling solution, so I am a bit shocked that it failed in this manner. I give this card one egg because a card should last more than two is under warranty I believe so I will update this space after I have dealt with MSI on this issue. If the process goes smooth they will get there eggs back. If not...I will let you all know. Things break i get that, the second half of any purchase is how the customer service is when they do.
