Pros: Easy install, fit right into the case and seated perfectly.
Computer never exceeded 42 deg C per the probe I have directly on the copper interface

Cons: - Pump failed after 6 months. Note this is the 3rd cooler master liquid cooling product (previously had 2 glacer 240's) that has suffered pump failure over less than a year of operation.
- Coolermaster has an issue with their pump wiring, and will not stand behind the product for more than 2 years on their stated warranty, despite their acknowledgement of pump wiring issues.

Other Thoughts: Coolermaster stated their pumps have a 5 year continuous life expectancy, but none of the 3 I owned exceeded a year. Buyer beware.

GIGABYTE GA-990FXA-UD3 AM3+ AMD 990FX + SB950 SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 ATX AMD Motherboard

Pros: Mouse friendly bios, high quality transistors. Layout is cable management friendly.

Cons: Lost an egg due to disappointing troubleshooting service from Gigabyte when I needed some help setting up the Raid controllers. I have built arrays in all my previous set-up's, so I am familiar with the concept. Customer service took me on the incorrect path for a solution and ultimately asked me to RMA the board. I tinkered with almost every bios setting and eventually got it working, saving 2 weeks of frustration and 2 eggs for gigabyte.

G.SKILL Sniper Series 16GB (2 x 8GB) 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM DDR3 1866 (PC3 14900) Desktop Memory Model F3-1866C9D-16GSR

Pros: Operate flawlessly on AMD FX990 chipset at advertised speeds. Low profile and matching color were the two reasons I chose these over the ripjaws.

Cons: None

Other Thoughts: I have used G.Skill ram in every computer I have built for the last 8 years, and I have never had a failure. They also have a lifetime warranty.
