This review is from: SeaSonic SS-350SFE 350W SFX12V V3.1 80 PLUS Certified Active PFC Power Supply
Pros: Fit my setup nicely with just the right amount & length connectors. Runs relatively quiet. Better quality than most PSU's available in this form factor. Provides decent amount of wattage (350)
Cons: The only con I can think of is that this is a bulk pack power supply that tends to have blemishes (scratches) This could likely be avoided if it were individually packaged from the manufacturer (Seasonic)
Other Thoughts: This is a follow-up review. I originally purchase this power supply from newegg back in early 2010 (5+ years) & it is still going strong.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: Intel rock solid reliability. Low power consumption & runs cool
Cons: Price would be the only con since this cpu is priced dis-proportionately higher than the next step down cpu(e8400)
Other Thoughts: I've been running this cpu for over a years with no problems I did not install the cpu fan that came supplied with it, but instead used a heatsink fan from a intel core2 quad (Q6600). The Q6600 heatsink is larger than the stock E8600 & uses a steel frame bracket (instead of the plastic one used on the E8600) to attach it to the board. I removed the push pins & used spring loaded screws & a steel back plate. This set-up worked great with no "flex" in the motherboard & the CPU runs plenty cool & the fan runs very quiet all the time.READ FULL REVIEW
This review is from: USRobotics USB 3.0 Super Speed 2-Port USB PCI Express Card Model USR8402
Pros: Good build quality. adequate spacing between the ports for oversize USB devices.
Cons: None that I can find.
Other Thoughts: This card has ample spacing between the USB ports for larger USB plugs, which is one of the reasons I chose it over the others Newegg sells. Build quality is better than some of the other (cheaper) cards too.READ FULL REVIEW
