Lenovo IdeaPad 500S 80Q3002WUS Laptop Intel Core i7-6500U 2.5 GHz 8 GB Memory 256 GB SSD 14

Pros: Great performance, lightweight, slim, power efficient, and sleek. The keyboard and touchpad feel nice and are highly functional. For me, an SSD is a must. This seems to limit affordable options, but this machine has been a real winner, so far. SSD and an i7

Cons: The LCD has some slight "fuzziness." The color seems fine, just that it doesn't appear quite as crisp as other 1080p LCD screens. Overall, not a deal breaker, but it's enough of a con to take half of an egg off.

Not a con for me, but the keyboard is not backlit. There is no real "bling," as far as that is concerned. Basic power lights are all that there are. I figured some care more about that.

I don't recommend attempting to remove the sticker on the bottom right. I started trying to peel it back and immediately noticed that there would be some sticker residue left over. I will pick up some goo gone when I'm feeling more motivated to remove it.

Other Thoughts: I re-imaged the machine right out of the box in order to maximize the storage capacity. This also served to remove bloatware and allowed me to update all of the drivers I could to the latest versions. An interesting note here...the machine will PXE boot to WDS without any bios changes. Remove from box, plug in a network cable, and F12 to select ipv4 boot. A small detail, but as an advanced user, one that was much appreciated.

PowerColor LCS AXR9 290X 4GBD5-WMDHG/OC Radeon R9 290X 4GB 512-bit GDDR5 PCI Express 3.0 CrossFireX Support Video Card (BF4 Edition) - Retail

Pros: This card is an amazing deal in an amazing package. It fixes the main issue with the 290x (heat,) and does so quite well. The price is also good considering what you get...The card, the waterblock, backplate, fittings, BF4, and even a cool mouse pad!

So far I couldn't be happier with this product.

Cons: At the moment, the only con I can think of (and it's not really a big deal,) is that one side of the block has less threads for the fittings. This means that you have to use one of the included spacers to attach a fitting on the other side of the block.

Other Thoughts: I haven't any overclocking yet, but I have cranked the power profile to +50 and done some stress testing. Under gaming, temps never go beyond 47C, and never above 50C while stress testing. My setup is a single loop with cpu in line after the video card and a triple radiator.
