The CM Extreme line of PSUs did not impress these peeps and even less @ JohnnyGuru hehe

Conclusions

Cooler Master eXtreme Power Plus 500 W is the perfect example to explain why maximum power isn’t everything. This power supply can really deliver 500 W, but with efficiency above 80% only when you pull between 40% and 60% load (between 200 W and 300 W) and electrical noise level above the maximum allowed if you pull 80% load or more (i.e., starting at 400 W).

We can’t recommend this power supply, however if you are really on a budget this may be an option until you have money to buy a decent power supply for your PC.

Sata is just a newer type ( well not that new xD ) of data transfer cable, A SATA drive will do everything that an IDE drive would.

Between USB and PCI i prefer the former due to ease if installation/transfer Have to check with owners if that wireless modem regrading range, etc
