Pros: Perfect blue chrome heat sinks really bring out the beauty of these chips. These chips actually come stock at 1600Mhz so like the other reviews, just go into your bios and change the settings. If your buying these cards I would hope your bios has the capability to change it.
Now I actually just recently changed my speed from 1600Mhz to 1866Mhz. There have been no problems and not even a single degree in temperature increase. I don't see a issue in overclocking these. They seem to handle anything I bring to them.
Also, I have to note. Every single card is hand tested. And they have a lifetime warranty by Patriot.

Pros: I've owned this CPU for a couple of months now and it still surprises me each day. When gaming, it blazes through without so much as a studder. I have yet to find a game that uses more than 25% of resources, and this is having the CPU use PHYSX as well.
Rendering in Sony Vegas 11 and After Effects CS4 are a breeze as well.
All of these things are done WHILE I also browse on chrome and other such things.
Let's be honest. Intel is outrageously over priced. If you can afford a i7 Extreme, than be all means buy it. But if not, GET THIS CPU. It is a powerhouse.
Cons: None. Even the stock cooler is great.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: Before I got the product, my previous PC went through 3 different power supplies before finally getting fried by one.
I decided to invest in high quality products so I knew just who to go to. Corsair. And boy did they make a great product here.
When I got the package, it was PERFECT. When opening I noticed how much care Corsair put into protecting their product. For a $199 (Before the price drop) item, I would hope for some protection and I couldn't be happier. The extra cables even come with their own case.
The full modular design allows my Thermaltake Chaser to have little to no wires showing (other than the motherboard cable of course). All of the cables are black except for the motherboard cable, which has a black sleeve, so it blends in well.
The fan on the supply itself only comes on as you need it. A lot of times for me it rarely even spins. So the noise level is zero. The system I'm running has a AMD FX-8350, a WD Velociraptor HDD, and a GTX 650 Ti, so it can at times draw a decent amount of power.
Cons: I took a egg off for the cables. The connections on the hard-drive connections are pretty stiff. The problem that brings is when you want to hide the cables BEHIND the motherboard. But with this unit being Full-Modular, you won't have to worry about to many unused cables.
Other Thoughts: If your running a powerful system with multiple drives or with multiple video cards, This is a MUST HAVE. Can't beat the price for the quality.READ FULL REVIEW
