Pros: I have read reviews that talk about DOA's, clicking sounds, etc. This unit, so far, suffers none of these. It is quiet and I have never seen windows load so fast. Don't know if that is a function of the processor or drive and it really doesn't matter. Its super quiet, actually the quietest I have ever worked with. Guess I got a good one. Oh, NE packing was superlative.
Other Thoughts: Would buy again. Have been using Black editions, but the specs on these are the same. The warranty is not, but I have seen Hitachi's, Toshiba's, etc, crash and burn right at a year or the limit of their warranty. This build was for a friend on a budget and I feel good about my choice of parts, especially the hard drive.READ FULL REVIEW
This review is from: Microsoft Windows 8 Professional 64-bit (Full Version)
Pros: I am not sure if there are any... It does seem to appeal to the younger set with tablets who yet lack the brains to discover the whole reason for pc's in the first place. Same applies to those ADD folks who prefer color to functionality. Major error in judgment on my part, however MS marketing really paid off. I think if it had appealed to the more savvy users, few would buy. I bought and did not like from square one. It is an almost useless attempt to clone a Mac.
Cons: I lost over $200.00 in software making the transition. My printer does not like the new software, nor do my DVD and Blu Ray drives and USB drives. Only Microsoft could come up with a more complex, non - user friendly, software hog such as this. I had an inkling before I bought an upgrade from Win 7 Ultimate to a lesser version (Pro) of this trash, but so seems to go with MS. I knew in my hearts of hearts that a $40.00 piece of software had to be

This review is from: Cooler Master Hyper 212 Plus - CPU Cooler with 4 Direct Contact Heatpipes
Pros: It works very well. Mine shipped missing a screw that attaches "X" mount to the board (hence the missing egg). Took care of that, and later found out that the cooler grease had turned into a rock. I used Arctic Silver on install. It is whisper quiet in functioning while moving a lot of air. Worked well for me with a bottom mounted power supply and I have no complaints.
Cons: The unit is huge. I would recommend installing it before installing the board into the case (not really a con) and make sure there is room.
Other Thoughts: Used it on a core i-7 875 unlocked. Temps stay in the mid 90's F and board temps stay in the mid 80's F. I have always been a fan of this type of cooler. Short of a liquid cooled unit, temps with these have always run low, even with sometimes radical overclocking. I would without hesitation recommend this product!!!READ FULL REVIEW
