Pros: Absolutely amazing. I purchased this for my computer build just because I already had an Ivy Bridge board, couldn't afford the i7, and couldn't afford to upgrade to the Haswell. I am more than happy with what this thing can do. I've been beating the hell out of it's stock speed + turbo with 1080p rendering without a GPU and I haven't seen temps rise about 65C. The speeds on it are fantastic, and the heatsink that came with it seems to be doing much more than I had expected. I figured the GPU was going to be the last part of my build (since a computer can run without dedicated GPU), and the Intel Graphics 4000 with this are able to run games I'd never expect it to run. Because of this, I could hold off on rushing to get a GPU so I can save and get a GTX770.
Cons: The heatsink was a pain in the neck to get on to my motherboard correctly, but I highly doubt that was the heatsink's fault. Probably user error and/or motherboard issue. Like I stated above, the heatsink seems to be doing its job so I'm not worried.
Other Thoughts: If you're looking to build a budget gaming computer while avoiding AMD products, this is the CPU to get. Performance is excellent, and I'm sure once I get a dedicated GPU my rig will be ready to conquer everything I'll want it to do.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: Bright backlights, excellent response time, comfortable feel, love the volume/brightness controls, audio and USB inputs are great, and the handrest is plastic so it doesn't attract dirt and dust like the other rubber/foam handrests on other brands of keyboards.
Cons: Opened the box and noticed the shift key and 0 key on the numpad were detached. Probably an issue with shipping, but the keys were a PAIN to get back on. The stabilizer bars underneath the longer length keys are really cheap and kept popping off as I was trying to put the keys back on. Needed to use a paperclip in order to get the keys back on correctly.
Other Thoughts: Great keyboard, but I'm not looking forward to cleaning this in the future :/READ FULL REVIEW
This review is from: APEVIA X-DREAMER4 Series X-DREAMER4-PK Pink Steel ATX Mid Tower Computer Case
Pros: Decent cable length, durable design. Unique appearance, easy to customize, pretty easy to assemble. Excellent ventilation. Neat temperature gauge. Cool bright LED fans. Supports all sorts of hardware, much universal. Wow.
Cons: Upon first inspection, I noticed that the PCI bay covers in the back are connected to the chassis and once you remove them once, you cannot put the covers back on. This could get annoying in the future, and if you plan on removing your GPU, sound card, etc. now you'll have to worry about dust getting into your system. Fitting the I/O shield on the case was a task and almost resulted in me breaking the shield. Also didn't like how the case didn't come with 2.5" HDD mounting capabilities (I had to order the enclosures seperately). If your motherboard has any front panel headers on the bottom left corner of the mobo (when mounted, right above the power supply), you'll run into cable length issues. I had to order an extension cable for the front panel HD audio because it was a few inches away from reaching. Once my entire computer was assembled and was ready to power on, I realized that the front panel power button was defective. I thought it was my motherboard's headers, but after reversing the connections with the reset and power buttons I could get the reset button to power the motherboard on just fine. When I did this, the power button did not reset the computer as it should have. Not only is this a real PITA, but it isn't what I would have expected out of this case.
Now I'm debating on whether it's worth it to disassemble everything and RMA the case with Apevia or to just suck it up and use the reset switch as the power button :/ Maybe if I choose to keep it, I'll try to repair the power button myself by removing the front panel and resoldering the button's connections. Meh.
Other Thoughts: I would give the case an extra egg if it wasn't defective out of the box; it's a shame because I really like the case and was interested in keeping it for my build. The cable issues can be worked around, but a defective power switch sort of drives me away.READ FULL REVIEW
