Pros: Good memory, I've overclocked mine stable @ 1780MHz.
Cons: It's not 1600 default, it's actually 1333MHz default. Overclocking is necessary in order to attain actual speed rating.
Other Thoughts: Good for the money, just wish it was actually 1600MHz but it's stable @ 1780 so I'm not complaining.READ FULL REVIEW
This review is from: Intel Core 2 Duo E8400 Wolfdale Dual-Core 3.0 GHz LGA 775 65W BX80570E8400 Processor

Cons: None. Zip. It's Intel!READ FULL REVIEW
This review is from: LIAN LI PC-A05B Black Aluminum ATX Mid Tower Computer Case
Pros: Fantastic build quality, the aluminum is top-notch. Minimalist exterior design and brushed black finish are fantastic to feel and see. Very lightweight. Interior is neatly appointed with a unique component placement setup that works in spite of it's size. Quick hard drive install/removal with rubber grommets that silence rattles. High quality hardware for installation.
Cons: Ventilation is less than ideal for use in enthusiast systems. My dual-GeForce 8800GT SLI system quickly brought this case to a steamy cooking temperature. Though the aluminum radiates heat very rapidly, the fans could use a boost as they just barely move air in and out of the case. Lack of high-volume vents also hinder it's performance.
Other Thoughts: Great for a basic desktop computer, just save your gaming hardware for a more ventilated case.READ FULL REVIEW
