This review is from: Turtle Beach Ear Force Z11 PC Gaming Headset
Pros: Great sound quality for the price, build quality is also great for the price besides 1 thing (see cons)
Cons: My ears are a little big so these hurt my ears after a while, but they don't squeeze my head. I am 1 month away from the 1 year warranty expiring and the wire is slowly beginning to disconnect from the headset itself. I really hope my email to TB gets a response before the warranty expires. Can't really afford a new headset right now, hopefully they don't charge too much for shipping or it won't be worth RMA'ing it.
Other Thoughts: I am very careful with this headset, no throwing around or tugging on the cord, it has just come loose by itself.READ FULL REVIEW
This review is from: Cooler Master Extreme Power Plus - 500W Power Supply
Pros: For me, it is quiet. Although I have heard from others that it makes a bit of noise, may just be some faulty fans, not difficult to replace. I have had mine for a year February 2014, running with 2 hard drives, a 125w AMD Phenom II x4 965, a factory overclocked GTX 650 2gb and it has had no problem powering all of this while playing games and recording all at the same time.
Cons: The cables are really short. Made with Micro-ATX in mind. In my ATX mid tower case, the cables can barely reach.
Other Thoughts: I highly recommend this PSU for anyone on a budget. I throw this into every build I design and have witnessed 3 friends purchase it and have quiet working gaming computers.READ FULL REVIEW
This review is from: ASRock 770iCafe AM3+ AMD 770 + SB710 ATX AMD Motherboard
Pros: It supports up to FX 8350 (and I believe even the new 9590 with the bios update). It is well built and the VRM works well.
Cons: The only issues I have run into with this motherboard, is that it only has 2 3pin fan connectors and that the USB controller isn't very good. My headset is USB and if it just tap the connector, my computer acts like my headset doesn't exist. I also hate that it doesn't support PCI-E 3.0, but I know that is the fault of AMD CPUs not supporing it yet.
Other Thoughts: If you get this motherboard, make sure you either have fans with a molex plug (or adapter) or have an external fan controller. Also look into getting a USB 2.0 or 3.0 expansion card, they are very cheap.READ FULL REVIEW
