This review is from: Noctua NH-D14 120mm & 140mm SSO CPU Cooler
Pros: Cool, so cool that 78 degree ambient temps and a vcore of 1.4 on an i5-2500k are not enough to tip me over 70 c on the prime 95 blend test. Seating this thing is a breeze! Instructions are great, and Noctua's customer support is fantastic. A lot of people fault this cooler for its aesthetics but I've never really thought it looked bad, particularly the metal used on the twin towers, it is very cool, menacing shade of grey. The nf-f12 fans included are some of the best you can get, and the metal clips are much easier to use than the plastic ones seen on coolers like the hyper 212 evo which this replaced. Overall I couldn't be more pleased with this product!
Cons: None thus far
Other Thoughts: Be sure your ram will be compatible with this behemoth here is a noctua site link where you can check.

This review is from: KINGWIN ABT-610MM 610W ATX 12V Ver2.2 SLI Ready CrossFire Ready Power Supply
Pros: Good price, worked well for a while...
Cons: Got this in winter of 2012, I was new to PC gaming and it was the first rig I built so I figured what was the best priced was the best choice. Now i'm reaping the negative consequences of that choice, the thing is on it's last leg, i'm talking at least one bsod a day. This PSU just simply doesn't have the longevity that a gaming rig needs. Perhaps it's short lifespan was due to my constant use of my pc. However I just really don't see use as an excuse for a power supply dying so soon. Also if this is a watt psu, then it must have an incredibly high percentage of energy loss because at times, certain games (crysis 2) would cause it to crash. And upon looking at the event viewer i'd see "kernel power id 41" which is a psu error code. Get a corsair or a rosewill. The extra money will actually save you money, as I am finding out now.READ FULL REVIEW
