Thermaltake SMART M Series SP-850M 850W ATX12V / EPS12V SLI Certified CrossFire Certified 80 PLUS BRONZE Certified Modular Active PFC Power Supply
  • Owned For: 1 month to 1 year

Pros: It keeps my PC running when it works.

Cons: Fan is extremely noisy. Clicks very loudly at any time it's on.
Power supply will shut off randomly, and will shut off if there's any vibration of the power supply or case.

Other Thoughts: I got this as an RMA for my PREVIOUS ThermalTake power supply which failed on me. I'm unable to go without this PC for two months (Which is the time it took for them to get me my RMA power supply last time) because of schooling/work that need to be done on it, so I can't send it in to get a new one.

This is two ThermalTake power supplies in a row that have failed on me- I'd recommend staying away.

Corsair Vengeance M65 CH-9000022-NA Gunmetal Black 8 1 x Wheel USB Wired Laser 8200 dpi Gaming Mouse
  • Owned For: 1 day to 1 week

Pros: Huge range of DPI settings.
"Sniper Button" can be configured to have a higher or lower DPI, for whatever you use it for.
Buttons to switch stuff are perfectly easy to get to.
Extremely ergonomic and comfortable.
Software is amazing.

Cons: Nothing to take eggs for, but:
Middle mouse button is hard to depress (You have to tilt it to the right), and there's not a discernible "click".
Mouse takes a tiny bit to get used to the shape.
The only one that I considered taking an egg off for is the sensor- It feels "floaty" and inaccurate when you first start using the mouse. I'd recommend turning down your DPI and up your cursor speed in Windows if that's an issue for you.

Other Thoughts: Best mouse I've ever touched, easily. Click buttons are nice and easy to press, but firm and clicky at the same time.

AMD FX-8150 Zambezi 8-Core 3.6GHz (3.9GHz/4.2GHz Turbo) Socket AM3+ 125W Desktop Processor with Liquid Cooling Kit FD8150FRGUWOX
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 week to 1 month

Pros: Very fast CPU.
Amazing water cooler.
Runs every game I throw at it without a problem.
Read Other thoughts for benchmarks.

Cons: I was a first time builder, and was building this system with a very experienced friend, yet we still had a lot of trouble figuring out the cooler. Nothing to remove an egg for, once you get it set up it's well worth it.

Other Thoughts: Got this running with a Radeon HD 7870 and 8gb of RAM, and I have the radiator in exhaust. Here are some benchmarks. All are at 1920x1080 resolution.
Metro 2033 (DX11, Very High) Average framerate = 50FPS. Lowest I've dropped is 30fps, still great because Metro is a very unoptimized game.
Far Cry 3: (DX11, Ultra, No AA) Average framerate = 50fps. Lowest, again, is 30fps. With 4x MSAA I average around 40fps.
A benchmark just for fun; Minecraft maxed out, I get about 300-400fps on average and never drop below 200fps.

Also- Far Cry 3 will get 6 cores running at 30% load each. When I rendered 1080p 60fps video, all 8 cores ran at 80%, and turning the Chill Control V fan setting to 'Extreme' I never went above 35c temps. On Silent, never above 45c. All in all, amazing cooler and CPU.
