This review is from: Cooler Master Hyper 212 EVO - CPU Cooler with 120 mm PWM Fan
Pros: This is a CPU cooler that works is quiet and is easy to install. What more can you want.
Cons: I can't find any. If you did you probably did it wrong.
Other Thoughts: The fan was too close to my ram slots, but I was able to take the fan off and move it up by about half a centimeter to make it fit. My point is I guess just make sure you have room.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: This processor is quite amazing and I bought it for my brothers gaming PC build. While 8 cores seems overkill for a gaming PC you can't beat the price. Purchase 9/30/2014 for $139.99.
Cons: The only con for this CPU is the stock cooler. While the cooler does technically work and keeps the temp low enough at max load it is just way too loud. Expect to get a new one if you don't want your ears to bleed. I ended up getting the Cooler Master Hyper 212 EVO.READ FULL REVIEW
This review is from: YAMAHA RX-V371 5.1-Channel AV Receiver
Pros: This is a decent starting audio/video receiver. I purchased this for $149.99 about 2 years back and it worked fine for a while.
Cons: I reset to factory settings and now the ARC and CEC functions do not work. I cannot get my TV audio to play through the 5.1 system. This is only a mild inconvenience because I can just do analog audio and use the 5.1 channel enhancer instead of true 5.1, but I bought the 5.1 system for a reason.
Other Thoughts: If you are like me and spent way over your budget on your speaker system just get this inexpensive receiver to offset the price. I will eventually move up to 7.2 but until then this will work for my needs.READ FULL REVIEW
