    You have kept your machines for 7 years. I am using a 4770k, which is 7 years old, now. I have a daughter that games on a 4790k -- a year younger. She has only upgraded the GPU. We have kept the same...

    Be sure that if you get a Dark Rock, do NOT get a Dark Rock TF. I reviewed the TF and found the mount to be bad. I personally would opt for a Noctua NH-D15 or an NH-D14 with new fans.

    I have seen a couple of Seasonic PSU reviews mentioning this. Seems that Seasonic PSU SATA power cables have 3.3v lines, but at least some Seasonic PSUs come with adapters that pass through all the...

    My suspicion, based solely on brand names, is that while the alleged wattage is sufficient, others with inside knowledge will tell you the you cannot trust a Zalman PSU.

    So, OP buys a top-of-the-line AMD CPU, a top-of-the-line NVIDIA GPU, he wants a budget PSU, and he is looking at below-budget crap.

    OP, let the gurus steer you to a top-of-the-line PSU. Your...

    What Stefan is saying is that with a single rail, all 1200W could be dumped in one spot all at once. I think we have seen pics of fires that started that way.

    Was the i5 the first generation Haswell (coeval with the i7 4770k) or refresh Haswell (Devil's Canyon, coeval with i7 4790k)? If the CPU is the former, it is six years old. The latter is a...

    They're not bad CPUs, just expensive. Stefan is right, though, to steer you to an AMD this generation. But the NVIDIA GPUs generally run cooler (use less power?) than AMD graphics cards. Best bet:...

    Why? Is this business with having an infinite number of series actually having some success?

    Here is the review. BTW -- the reviewer's name is Jeremy. And it looks like the very PSU he reviewed is going for 85 Euros, per your report. Are the Zalmans EOL? Are they leaving the PSU market?

    OK. So most PSU-makers make their PSUs in China. We know CM sourced a PSU from Japan. Any other non-Chinese PSU factories?
