Appears to have a very solid build quality and is easy to use.

Positive Review

My conclusion is that there is a grounding issue with the tower case and not the motherboards.

    The cheap $10 tester from china is useful - it does have an lcd screen.

    It shows ll on some voltages when you first plug in the main motherboard psu plug, but that doesn't mean a failure - it means that the other voltage it needs is missing.


    Posted by a reviewer on Amazon

    When you plug something else in, the ll goes away and it shows the voltage.

    I called corsair, as it was under warranty, and they told me to short the green and black wires - i did that and nothing happened.

    The power supply did not turn on.

    So the psu is bad - it passes the testers, but not the actual load test of the sabertooth motherboard.


    Posted by a reviewer on Amazon

    A load test goes beyond by actually putting a real load on the power supply.

    The third psu, a corsair av 850, came with a computer that i was able to get from a family member who works as a video game animator - he had one, a 2011 slot (not the year 2011, actually it has 2,011 contact pins) 6-core 12-thread that had been in his garage for 3 years, a big step up for me as my old 10-year rig was a slot 775 quad core 4-thread 9450 machine with a 30% overclock up to just under the standard clock of this 6-core.
