Pros: Alright this is my 2nd personal SSD, different brand this time around. I am loving the speeds this thing has to offer, not to mention the features such as the ability to just copy over your operating system with Seagate's software.
Cons: None as of yet.
Other Thoughts: Love the price on this, when I first entered the SSD market when they were brand new, I paid 220.00 for a 100GB SSD. Now I am getting one for half the price with an extra 20GB. Gotta love how demand pushes prices!READ FULL REVIEW
This review is from: CORSAIR Hydro Series H50 120mm Quiet Edition Liquid CPU Cooler - Intel Only
Pros: Stock clocked Intel Core i5-3570K Ivy Bridge is hovering at 34 C and not rising about 40 even at load, plan on OC'ing to at least 3.8 if not 4.0 and see what I can get in the future out of this cooler.
One of the things I was surprised about (being that this is my first liquid cooler) is the ease of installation, I am used to installing air cooled aftermarket cooler, so this thing was a breeze in comparison.
Cons: None as of yet.
Other Thoughts: For anyone running a Cooler Master HAF 932 Advanced tower, nothing against Corsair, but with the combination of that, this cooler and my Asrock mobo (z77 Extreme4), I had to cut out a portion of my case to get this cooler to fit its back plate correctly. Wasn't a big deal, but didn't realize this until I got it.READ FULL REVIEW
This review is from: ASRock Z77 Extreme4 LGA 1155 Intel Z77 HDMI SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 ATX Intel Motherboard
Pros: First thing that really struck me great about this product is the GUI BIOS it comes with, up until this point I have never worked with one and it was quite a refreshing change to be about to go through and select options via mouse in there, not to mention the other features readily available there as well.
The board itself looks and feels very slick and performs more than adequately. Currently got an Intel Core i5-3570K Ivy Bridge running in it stock, but have tinkered with the OC settings and have overclocked it quite easily through the available software in the past.
The software and features that come with this board are just insane, I doubt I will ever use even half of them, but just having them is a perk in itself.
Other great features of course include USB 3.0, PCIe 3.0, and SATA 6/gb's. All great perks for a lower end priced mobo.
Cons: Don't really have any as of yet.
Other Thoughts: Overall for the price, great motherboard and will not hesitate to purchase from Asrock in the future, this was my first motherboard from them and I definitely am impressed enough to use it in my future builds for myself and others I build.READ FULL REVIEW
