This review is from: BIOSTAR TZ68A+ LGA 1155 Intel Z68 HDMI SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 ATX Intel Motherboard
Pros: This motherboard was cheap and is effective for the most part.
Cons: Didn't come ready for 22nm CPU as it stated on the box, had to order an older generation sandy bridge to flash the bios and use it. Not only that but I dont see any support for the IVB integrated 4000 graphics (not a big thing) or overclocking past 39 on IVB. If you want any of these features go z77.
Other Thoughts: Thanks for the board, and hopefully you'll have a more effective bios update next time. And try not slapping stickers on things after they've been on the shelve 12 months newegg, they may be outdated...READ FULL REVIEW
This review is from: Cooler Master Hyper 212 Plus - CPU Cooler with 4 Direct Contact Heatpipes
Pros: This fan is the best fan I've ever seen with a computer and its the next best thing to water cooling! It keeps my Core 2 Quad Q6600 around 80 degrees Fahrenheit idle and 100-110 under load! What more could you ask for?
Cons: The only con is the size and no eggs taken because I had measured before I ordered. It IS 5 inches tall and I did have to move a fan to the outside of my case but it was worth it all the way.
Other Thoughts: If they could get this kind of cooling in micro sizing then It would be even better and I'd probably implement it in micro atx cases as well. But I'm a very happy camper overall!READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: I've owned this laptop since december of 2010 and it has been a breeze to operate and a pleasure to play! The graphics are what you would expect from a desktop and so is the processor. The bluray is a nice feature as well for the laptop. The ram is nice and can be upgraded to 1333mhz and the laptop also comes with dual hard drive bays!!! Aside from all of the technical features the laptop games like a pro and plays everything up to the latest battlefield 3. This is the third benchmarked game on the list and the laptop plays it at low to medium settings.
Cons: Nothing really other than the bulkyness and the overall weight. Can't take an egg off for that as the screen wouldn't be as big if it was smaller!
Other Thoughts: Although the graphics built into it are very nice and good for gaming im considering a gtx 460m used to upgrade to, just for better gaming performance.READ FULL REVIEW
