be quiet! POWER ZONE 850W ATX 12V Fully Modular Power Supply Silentwings 135mm Fan

5 out of 5 eggs Impressive - cut wattage usage by 12% from prior unit 07/14/2016

This review is from: be quiet! POWER ZONE 850W ATX 12V Fully Modular Power Supply Silentwings 135mm Fan

Pros: Quiet, only need to install wiring needed, and reduced power consumption by 12% compared to prior unit. Includes machine screws which are not standard to prior hardware, sorta hidden among the included wire wraps.
Cables are wrapped for a clean looking installation. Single cable powered floppy, DVD unit and 2 hard drives.

Cons: May be easier to plug in the wires needed before mounting in the case.

Other Thoughts: Impressive workmanship and packing. Would recommend "Be Quiet" PSUs to others.

BIOSTAR Hi-Fi A85W FM2 AMD A85X (Hudson D4) SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 HDMI ATX AMD Motherboard

Pros: The BIOSTAR|HI-FI A85W A85 FM2 R is a quality mainboard with solid state capacitors. It went together and fired up without a hitch the day it arrived. It is ideal with the combined CPU/GPU, an HDMI port and a PCI slot (for a satellite tuner card) as a media computer. It is ideal for the 10-50Mb tv video rates from satellite feeds and compared to FTA set top boxes it is a powerful dude. My prior 2 core AMD Athlon 64 X2 5800+ on a Gigabyte mb was often pushed above 90% cpu usage while the inexpensive 4 core AMD A8-5600K Trinity on this board runs at less than 20% cpu usage. A pair of (Biostar unlisted) 1866Mhz Gskill 2Gig slices of memory was sufficient along with a left over 60Gig OZ SSD.

Cons: None really.

Other Thoughts: This board was a pleasant surprises in how much technology has advanced, especially considering its price. In fact, it was a real steal at $57, but if you are not aware of what APU and FM2 are all about do your homework first. The Newegg 30 days is far more than necessary to verify any board’s acceptability.

It is not for serious gaming without a high end video card, which would ignore its most practical use. When sending audio over HDMI to the TV don’t expect it to be present on your monitor speakers or on S/PDIF. My previous AMD based Gigabyte mb setup had the same limitation.

EVGA GeForce GTX 660 Ti DirectX 11 02G-P4-3660-KR 2GB 192-Bit GDDR5 PCI Express 3.0 x16 HDCP Ready SLI Support Video Card
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: 1 day to 1 week

Pros: EVGA video cards have been well built, using solid caps, and quiet fans that run forever. My last EVGA card was and still is running after more than 4 years. Their treatment of customers is very reassuring from the comments of others although I have never found it necessary to confirm such.

Cons: None.

Other Thoughts: Experience with my last EVGA card led me to stay with them.
