BIG008.COM ONLINE STORE PROFILE
been a well known online retailer of quality computer components for at
least a couple of years now. One defined characteristic of this online
company is it's selection of Lian-li cases (Even the hard to find ones).
I had a glance at their profile and record on resellerratings.com
, and was really impressed at their record and you can have a peek for
. If you are in the market for a computer case or power supply, especially
a Lian-li, make this one of your first stops, the service and selection
One the the foundation blocks of a fast, efficient and problem free computer
system has to be the power supply. Most instability problems with stock
or even overclocking ventures taken place at a workstation can more than
often be boiled down to an inferior power supply with improper current
flows on its certain voltage rails. Seeing that I do help people out on
the internet with their computer problems, it irritates me to hear some
man/woman complaining that they just bought a new top of the line computer
that they built and researched themselves only to skimp out on the power
supply which is dependent by every single damn component in the system.
Figure this, would you built an amazing hot-rod and install K-mart(r)
economy tires, I don't think so. To counteract this instability dilemma,
Big008.com was kind enough to donate a sample of the Enermax 350watt Manual
Fan Controlled Power Supply to introduce me to this cadillac line of power

PRODUCT COMPOSITION & FEATURES
With the purchase of a power supply, what do I get?
The manual, the actual power cable (you won't believe how many power
supplies do not come with them), a case badge, and a 3pin to 4pin molex
convertor for hooking up the main power supply fan to the main power instead
of it being monitored by the motherboard monitoring software.
Shed the bubble wrap (snap, snap, mmmm), and you are introduced to a
rather attractive blue unit, with gold fan grills, and a seemingly endless
barrage of power connectors for any occasion.
And enermax doesn't skimp out at all on the length of the power cables
and supports those new full-tower cases which need long lengths to reach
from the top of the case to the bottom.
The first photo is the mainboard power connector for the large sidefan.
Connecting it via the motherboard will allow you to monitor the fan speed
of the fan and allow you to modify its speed to your desire.
