ENERMAX Platimax EPM1350EWT 1350W ATX12V / EPS12V SLI Ready CrossFire Ready 80 PLUS PLATINUM Certified Full Modular Active PFC Power Supply New 4th Gen CPU Certified Haswell Ready

  • neweggOwned For: 1 week to 1 month

Pros: Efficiency
5 year warranty
Previous Enermax Experience

Cons: Cost

Other Thoughts: I have 4 ASICMiner Block Erupter Cubes running off this one power supply. All four are also overclocked.

I did have an issue with the PS shutting down due to an overload on one of the rails. Turns out I had 2 cubes attached to one rail. A closer look at the directions and I saw that I had to move one of the modular cables to a different connection point on the supply. The instructions indicate which plugs go to which rail and each cube needs it's own dedicated rail.

Very happy with the efficiency. I haven't done any actual measurements but I feel very little heat coming off the supply when I have a heavy load on it.

Even though it's very expensive I feel it is still a good investment for my ASIC miner needs over the next few years. That many years at over 80% load should yield some energy cost savings from the added efficiency.

I plan on buying a second one to power a pair of Antminer S1 Dual blade setups.

In addition, I have been a customer of Enermax for many years now and I have been very happy with the quality that I get. I will admit though there may be a recent DOA issue. In the nearly 10 years I have been buying enermax supplies it wasn't until recently that I started getting the occasional DOA supply.

SAPPHIRE 100312-3SR Radeon HD 6950 Dirt3 Edition 2GB 256-bit GDDR5 PCI Express 2.1 x16 HDCP Ready CrossFireX Support Video Card with Eyefinity
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: 1 month to 1 year

Pros: The 6950 2G in general is a great buy if you want to do Crossfire. The added dual fans makes a pair of these great for overclocking. Keeping my OC at a mild 850/1350 for now. Fairly sure I'll be able to go higher.

Cons: Single CF Bridge connector.
Card does sag a little at the end due to it's length and heavy heatsink.

Other Thoughts: If you want Tri-Fire, make sure your third card has 2 bridge connectors like the Sapphire Toxic version.

OCZ Agility 2 2.5

5 out of 5 eggs Major Performance Improvement 09/22/2010

This review is from: OCZ Agility 2 2.5" 60GB SATA II MLC Internal Solid State Drive (SSD) OCZSSD2-2AGTE60G

Pros: I replaced my 7200rpm laptop drive and installed Windows 7 64 bit. Even though the laptop only supports Sata 1 the performance difference is major. For the first time in my 20 years of working on computers I can honestly say the Hard Drive is the fastest component.

Cons: Cost and Size of course but SSD is constantly getting faster, larger, and cheaper every year.

Other Thoughts: Don't think I'll ever buy a regular hard drive again unless I need some large storage. For boot drive and most applications this is a perfect solution.
