CORSAIR HX series HX650 650W ATX12V v2.2 / EPS12V 2.91 SLI Ready 80 PLUS GOLD Certified Modular Active PFC Power Supply
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: 1 month to 1 year

Pros: Semi-modular - you don't have unused cables lying in the case.

80+ Gold, though I have to take their word for it.

Cons: None

Other Thoughts: Not a con, but the main power cables are not modular. You have to go to the AX or RM series to get fully modular PSUs.

Also not a con (in my opinion), but the PSU had a bad fit in the case (also Corsair). Turned out one of the rivets was too long. I grinded it a bit, and the PSU fits very nicely now. I assume this event should be rare, though.

SAMSUNG 840 Pro Series 2.5
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: 1 month to 1 year

Pros: This is my first SSD, and I love the difference in speed! I use it for a Linux Mint OS and never had a problem with it.

Cons: None

Other Thoughts: Saw reviews on SSD durability - this drive and the Corsair Neutron handled over a petabyte of read/write. The Pro series of SSD seem to be good for durability, although I won't stress my drive that much.

CORSAIR Vengeance 16GB (2 x 8GB) 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM DDR3 1600 (PC3 12800) Desktop Memory Model CMZ16GX3M2A1600C9
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: 1 month to 1 year

Pros: Good and reliable brand.

Cons: None so far

Other Thoughts: UEFI detected these as DDR3 1333, no idea if because of memory sticks or motherboard. Set them manually at 1600.
