This review is from: Cooler Master Hyper T4 - CPU Cooler with 4 Direct Contact Heatpipes
Pros: The T4 will work for most users, but everyone should get the EVO instead. Spend the extra couple dollars, because it's a much better cooler (according to benchmarks).
This one works and is easy to install.
Cons: If you're overclocking your CPU, you should get the EVO for the coolest temperatures.
Other Thoughts: The T4 is a good heatsink and easy to install.READ FULL REVIEW
This review is from: CORSAIR CX series CX600 600W 80 PLUS BRONZE Active PFC ATX12V & EPS12V Power Supply
Pros: Good enough for most users. The cords are long enough to reach from the very bottom of my Thor V2 to the very top of the case at the corner of the motherboard for the ATX 12V CPU plug. All of the cords except that one could be routed through the back panel to promote better airflow inside the case.
Got this for $50 shipped after MIR, which makes it the cheapest good PSU on the market.
Cons: Not modular, so you have extra cords you don't need cluttering up your case. If your case has a cable management system to route extra cables behind the panel, the problem is irrelevant.
Other Thoughts: If you don't want to waste a lot of money on a fancy PSU, this one is for you. It will work in the vast majority of builds, and should last the lifetime of your computer.
Got this for an i7 4770k and Radeon HD 7770.
Pros: Undoubtedly the best card at its price (I paid $81 for it after rebates). If you don't want to move up $100 in price to a Radeon HD 7850, you won't get this kind of value at any neighboring price point.
Runs everything on highest settings no problem on a single monitor at 1080p.
Cons: It's very loud when the fan is turned up, but my case stays cool enough that the GPU fan doesn't need to run at a high speed very often.
Other Thoughts: If you can get it under $85 shipped after rebates, this is a great deal on a low end GPU that can run modern games at max settings. If you have the budget, move up to the HD 7850.READ FULL REVIEW
