Cooler Master Hyper 212 Plus - CPU Cooler with 4 Direct Contact Heatpipes
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 month to 1 year

Pros: What else more needs to be said for this classic air cooler? Does all as advertised, and does it extremely well. Keeps my OC'd 1055T super frosty, under 25 degrees in normal use. Bought it when rebate was in effect, just an obvious buy. I was VERY surprised by how quiet this actually is, nearly inaudible in most situations.

Cons: None. Just a few notes of caution for installation though. Is tall, so make sure your case has the clearance. It can be somewhat difficult to install bottom bracket, but is def doable.

MSI R7770-PMD1GD5 Radeon HD 7770 GHz Edition 1GB 128-Bit GDDR5 PCI Express 3.0 x16 HDCP Ready Video Card
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 week to 1 month

Pros: Runs cool and quiet. Ends up being $89 with rebates, and comes with Far Cry 3; nice combo! Plays limited number of games that I've tried on at least medium-high settings. Fairly compact size, and you can overclock it a fair amount with the included Afterburner software, which is great on all Radeon cards, btw. 3 year warranty, has been perfectly stable thus far with an OC'd Athlon X3 and reduced latency 8GB DDR3 memory. Ideal high mid range GPU IMHO.

Cons: No physical Crossfire support, but not an issue for an occasional gamer. Other than that, don't know what more you can expect out of this card at $90.

DIYPC MiniQ7-B USB 3.0 w/Dual Red Fans Black SECC ATX Mini Tower Computer Case
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 week to 1 month

Pros: Price with rebate is right on target. Overall this case won me over. Was initially skeptical, but build quality and features are good for price point, though metal is thin, and in some areas sharp. But again, at this price, what do you expect? Front design is very novel/cool, piano black glossy panel, HAL 9000-like red jewel power button, USB 3.0 & 2.0 jacks on the side. Plenty of PCI expansion slots, and 2 included case fans in rear are not only a nice touch, they work well, and are quiet. Can easily accomodate ATX boards, though mATX probably makes sense at this size. While it is listed as mini ATX tower, it isn't exactly the smallest case, though def not large either. Good compromise size-wise, IMHO.

Cons: Subtracting one egg for the following reasons. 1. Internal design left me wishing for more in a few areas. Most importantly, only one 5.25" bay and 3.5" bay are built in to the case. Front mounted bottom PSU location limits addition of an additional bay frame. The minimal instruction sheet (which is essentially useless to inexperienced builders) indicates a space in middle bottom of case to place additional HDD, but leaves job of securing it up to you. With addition of a couple PCI cards, this space disappears anyway. There is space between the included bays and the PSU area for one or two more bays, so in the age of RAID setups and SSD+HDD combos, I don't understand this exclusion, even at this price level. For my purposes, I simply used a Momentus XT Hybrid HDD, and didn't use any additional drives, so this worked out. 2. The DVD drive sits behind a front door that flips down when the tray ejects. This is fine, but the tray usually gets stuck on the door when it retracts, though am working on a solution to this. 3. PSU location setup limits it from exhausting the internal air. Instead pulls outside air in, which is not altogether bad, just a preference. However, this can be worked around if so desired.
