Pros: Great low price! The picture clarify rivals any IPS monitor. I also have ASUS PB278Q and the quality of this monitor is very similar to that. My monitor has no backlight bleed or any dead pixel.
Multiple input and does not have the antiquated VGA input. VGA input should not be present for any WQHD monitor. Other manufacturers should follow suit. Has 1 Dsiplayport, Dual-link DVI, 2 HDMI. I can have 4 PCs connected to this monitor while using a switch box. 3-year warranty.
Cons: The stand is not as good as others, it is a fixed stand and does not have height adjustment, etc. However, it is still better than most Korean monitor stand. The title says IPS but it is AH-VA panel. It is close to IPS and honestly I cannot tell the difference between the 2 (with my HP ZR2740w). I would love to get an HDMI cable with this.
Other Thoughts: With VISA checkout I saved on the tax and recycling fee and sitting at $300 waiting for the $50 rebate. That makes it an awesome deal if I can get the rebate.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: Great case. Very easy to install. Very spacious for motherboard up E-ATX. Since all the components are in close proximity to each other, I have no need for any cable extension. I was also able to use just 1 SATA power cable to power the SSD and the DVD drive.
Pretty good airflow. My CPU cooler was too tall so I cannot install a 200mm fan on the top.
My ZOTAX GTX 680 AMP was acting up as the fans are hitting the fan grill when installed horizontally. This case saves it as now the GPU is installed vertically and has no problem now.
This is my portal gaming box. However, this box is heavy with all the top end components that it is not very portable anymore. The case itself is not that heavy.
Cons: If you use the hot swap bays, don't use a hdd that gets hot, because there is no air flow for those bays. A 5400rpm hdd might do, but a 7200rpm drive will probably be too hot.
The PSU bay is a bit short. I can barely fit in my Corsair AX1200, and I am not able to use the hot swap bay once the PSU gets in there.
The front stock fans could be better, but are fairly quiet.
No rear exhaust fan so you have to get your own.
If you put a HDD in the internal drive bay (not the hot swap bays), you should get a couple of 80mm fans to cool them.
Other Thoughts: Get the DEMCiflex fan filters. They are expensive, but will fiter out all the dirt out of your case.

Got all my Rebates from Cooler Master without any problems so great deals!
Pros: Good price. Nice looking heatsink and using only 1.5V, which is good for Intel CPUs. Passed memTest86+ with no errors. XMP enabled and run at 1600MHz with 1 change in the BIOS.
Cons: Incompatible with EVGA X79 Dark. I spent many hours troubleshooting as my newly built system would not install Windows 7 without freezing. After installation, it would randomly restart, sometimes BSDOs with different error messages. I ran everything at stock speed and without XMP (so at 1333MHz) and still it would do the same thing. I could be moving my mouse cursor and all of a sudden the system just restarted. After swapping out power supply, video card, tried different BIOS, I finally bit the bullet and changed out the RAM. And voila, no more random restart/blue screen.
Other Thoughts: The issue is more with EVGA X79 Dark than with this memory, so I only deduct an Egg. However, if you have that motherboard and thinking of buying this memory, my advice is don't do it. My set up -
i7 4930k (stock speed, no overclock)
EVGA X79 Dark
Crucial memory @1600MHz 8x8GB
EVGA GTX 660
850W Gold PSU
