Pros: Bought this at Best Buy for my budget build. It runs fairly well and stable. I was able to overclock it about 15% with MSI Afterburner to squeeze out a decent amount of FPS for my tastes.
Cons: The default thermal paste is terrible. The chip was running at 60 degrees celcius under load until I switched it out for some Artic Silver 5; instantly dropped 10 degrees.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: Where do I start... I first bought it cause I needed a budget case, but the look grew on me. After THAT wore off though, it turned out to be an excellent case for my first window/logo mod (Project Aces logo with blue LEDs!) Fits all the HDD/SSD you will ever need and probably 5.25 drives as well. It would be a bit cramped for high end gaming systems, but I have a mATX board and a small GPU anyways, so no worries.
Cons: The grille pattern for the fans really amplifies the noise, even when they are silent outside the case. Also needs a 3.5 external bay. Seriously, I can never find an adapter bracket to fit in 5.25 bays.
Other Thoughts: Great for anything but the most hardcore gamers. I refered my sister to it cause she needed a good budget case to replace her decade-old system.READ FULL REVIEW
This review is from: CORSAIR Hydro Series H50 120mm Quiet Edition Liquid CPU Cooler - Intel Only
Pros: Bought this for my SSD even though (a) I only have 3GB/s ports and (b) I have plenty of spare SATA II cables. Needed a blue look for my case. It works (No surprise there) and it was a good size for my case/mobo.
Cons: This is definetly not UV reactive, was kinda disapointed, but oh well.READ FULL REVIEW
