Pros: Great modular PSU. Handles everything I'm running on my system and because it's modular there wasn't a huge mess of cables to deal with.
Cons: Biggest issues with this PSU are with the cables themselves. The SATA power cables specifically are very short and I had to drop both my hard drives and my optical drive down as far in my case as they would go in order to be able to power all three. I had to do this because the molex power cable plugged into the same plug (as in the same style plug... And there are only 2) on the PSU as did the SATA power cable.
During the process of trying to figure out how to adapt to this I went to referance the PSU manual and unfortunately this PSU either does not ship with one or I did not receive on.
I'd also like to note that the mobo main power cable is rather stiff and was hard have good cable maintenance with it and the supplementary power cable was not 1 8 pin power cable but 2 4pin which made it awkward because they both have latches to stay in place but only one latch to mate to on the mobo connector.
Other Thoughts: All in all not a bad deal. My cons are very minor. Some of which I'm sure could be alleviated by spending a bit more but they are what came to mind.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: Great card for the price. I've been running Planetside 2 these last couple days on high settings and never drop below 60 frames even in the most hectic of battles. (This game is still in Beta and not yet optimized 20/Sept/12). I'm dying to run Sleeping Dogs soon which came with the card as a promo offer. Loving it so far.
Also doesn't heat up to terribly.
Cons: None that I can think of.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: Great case. Very spacious inside and with the two in case fans (with room for at least two more from what I can tell 1. Top and 1 side panel) The case has great air flow and keep everything inside nice and cool.
Cons: Maybe it's just because it's my first build but the MOBO standoff guide on the back panel of the case didn't match up to what I ended up needing to properly mount the motherboard. All the holes were there but the lettering did not match up to where I needed to place standoffs. Not serious enough to take away an egg though.READ FULL REVIEW
