Raptors up by 40 at halftime, go on to rout Jazz 130-110

TORONTO — Fred VanVleet and the Toronto Raptors hardly anticipated an easy night against the Utah Jazz. Pascal Siakam scored 35 points, VanVleet had 21 points and 11 assists, and the Raptors used a record-setting first half to rout the Jazz 130-110 Sunday.

We have reviewed both the Corsair RM850 and RM750 so far, and we found them to be excellent. The time has come to take a detailed look at the smallest member of the line, the RM650, which as the model number implies, has 650W max power.
