Acer S241HLbmid  Black 24
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 month to 1 year

Pros: -looks nice
-24", 1080p
-good connections on the back

Cons: -speakers are sad

Other Thoughts: Two things
-It's a monitor first and a speaker system second. If you buy this for the speakers, not only are you making a mistake, but you should consider outboard speakers or a real HDTV.
-Pairs well with the 23"s of the same series for eyefinity. I have the 24" center and the 23"s on the sides in portrait. It looks beautiful

AMD FX-8350 Black Edition Vishera 8-Core 4.0GHz (4.2GHz Turbo) Socket AM3+ 125W Desktop Processor FD8350FRHKBOX
  • Owned For: 1 month to 1 year

Pros: -Fast.
-hyperthreading ability is great for photo/video editing
-good with OC
-Doesn't run super hot with a good cooler

Cons: I have experienced no cons so far.

Other Thoughts: This CPU is awesome. If you're getting temps above 50C with the stock cooler, either your ambient temps are high or you have improperly installed the heatsink. I have mine paired with a Corsair Hyper 212 evo with upgraded fans, ( a total of about $60) and my temps rarely rise above 30C. When OCd it gets marginally hotter, even as far up as 4.6ghz. Overall, if you're looking for an AWESOME multi-purpose CPU, this is the way to go. I use my pc for gaming, photo/video processing, and media storage/playback. it never lags.
my system:
gigabyte 970A
2x8GB Corsair vengeance RAM
xfx HD7850 256bit 1gb
2x1tb hdd
1x120gb ssd
corsair 500r, 8 case fans installed
750w raidmax psu

GIGABYTE GA-970A-D3P AM3+/AM3 AMD 970 SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 ATX AMD Motherboard
  • Owned For: 1 month to 1 year

Pros: -inexpensive
- USB ports
-compatible with AMD FX processors
- USB ports

Cons: -first board I received was DOA.
-bios took some figuring out, but looks and functions nicely.

Other Thoughts: Overall, as long as it works, it's solid. It hasn't failed me since I got the RMA replacement. It's a good board.
