ASUS Desktop PC M32AD-US050S Intel Core i7 4790 (3.6 GHz) 16 GB DDR3 1 TB HDD Windows 8.1 64-Bit
  • Owned For: 1 month to 1 year

Pros: ASUS brand name. Computers: It's what they do best! I've always bought ASUS motherboards and graphic cards and have not been disappointed. ASUS is a trusted and proven company that knows their stuff. I play GTA V (with upgraded power supply and Nvidia 970 graphics card) at full 1080 resolution and it runs smooth! This system has so much potential if you are willing to upgrade a few parts.

Cons: Weak power supply. Do yourself a favor and swap out the power supply for something better. I put in a 700 watt to support a Nvidia 970 graphics card. The power supply that comes with this system doesn't even support the right inputs for newer graphic cards (8 pin), so prepare yourself to upgrade it.

Other Thoughts: Upgrade the power supply and graphics card and you'll have a BEAST of a gaming machine!

5 out of 5 eggs Best Thermostat You Can Buy 01/13/2015

This review is from: Honeywell TH9320WF5003 Wi-Fi 9000 Color Touchscreen Programmable Wi-Fi Thermostat (3H/2C)

Pros: Fully programmable (weekdays, weekends, holidays, etc), touch screen, screen color themes, wi-fi, outdoors temp and so much more.

Cons: None

Other Thoughts: This thermostat REQUIRES a Common Wire. If you don't have one, it's probably not in use and tucked in the wall. If you don't connect the Common Wire - you won't get a screen display. Installation was extremely simple. Setup took less than a minute.

Cooler Master Hyper 212 EVO - CPU Cooler with 120 mm PWM Fan

5 out of 5 eggs Cooler Master Cooly Cool 09/07/2014

This review is from: Cooler Master Hyper 212 EVO - CPU Cooler with 120 mm PWM Fan

Pros: - Keeps the bad temps down
- Just plain works

Despite some review say that screwing the heatsink bracket into the motherboard required REALLY HARD PRESSURE -- I did not experience any difficulty in getting the screws placed and tightened that required pressing down too hard on the screws. It was pretty simple.

Cons: - Somewhat difficult to install
- Heatsink can only be placed one direction

Make sure watch installation videos on Youtube. Very helpful tips there. AM3 motherboards have a different configuration, so make sure you use the right mounting screws and position the back plate correctly!

Take your time installing this! Study the videos and be prepared. If you are lucky, your case will allow you access to your mounting holes without having to remove the whole motherboard. I was not lucky in this case and had to take the motherboard completely out of the case to install the mounting bracket. Install time: 1 hr/15 minutes.

Other Thoughts: My AM3+ 3.4Ghz CPU was running way too hot with gaming (70c!!!) and the stock AMD fan just wasn't doing the job, so I did my homework and found this fan highly recommended. No eggs lost, but it would be nice if the heatsink could be placed to the side since my fan now blows either to the top of my mid-tower case or to the bottom (where my graphics card is placed). It can't be positioned to point towards the back of the case to push the hot air out. Still, it is keeping my CPU at a constant 38c on idle and never goes over 50c during intense gameplay. Worth every cent!!!
