Acer B286HK ymjdpprz Black 28
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 week to 1 month

Pros: No problems running on R9 290X with Catalyst 14.11
Great Screen
Lots of inputs (But only DP and Mini DP will do 4k at 60hz)
Automatically has multiple resolutions available to choose from in settings if you cannot do 4K at the moment(Including 1440p which some 4K screen will not do without manually creating the resolution)
USB 3.0 hub plenty of ports (something I personally like having).
Great specs and adjustments available
Better front adjustable buttons/settings than other brands recently
Comes with plenty of different cables (Including a DP cable, HDMI, and DVI just to name a few)
Stole this for $350, best deal I have seen in awhile!
Decent adjustable stand

Cons: Built in speakers are mediocre at best (I am not using them of course but I felt mentioning this since I tried them and as usual with monitors these days they are not even good for listening to a youtube video)
Wish all USB 3.0 hub ports were on the side (Except when one is reserved for updating monitor firmware of course)

Other Thoughts: No real complaints actually as overall I do not regret buying this monitor one bit. Its got great quality and from the moment I plugged it in I was shocked at how well it worked and required no adjustments out of the box. The Picture quality is great and it has worked better than my Asus PB287Q on my machine. I love the USB 3.0 hub as it just gives more flexibility when I need to plug in something simple like a Thumb drive and cannot get to the front one on the machine (Which my case only has 2.0 on the front at the moment because of a missing adaptor needed to make it a 3.0).

I want to point out that this monitor works flawlessly on a R9 290X setup in case you are wanting to buy for your GPU. My asus had problems that were never resolved so I took a chance on this one and it works great while giving great picture quality.

Specs:
i7 5930K @ 4.5ghz
MSI Gaming 9 X99 AC
Corsair Vengeance 16gb (4x4gb) 2666
3x PowerColor R9 290X
Custom Liquid setup with GPU's and CPU on a 360mm and 140mm Radiator.
Rosewill Lightning 1300Watt Gold PSU
Acer B286HK 4K and 2 1080p Hanns-G monitors

Cooler Master Hyper 212 EVO - CPU Cooler with 120 mm PWM Fan
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 month to 1 year

5 out of 5 eggs Great Value Air Cooler! 10/16/2014

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

Pros: Nice PWN Fan
Mounting is expandable for all sockets (Main Stream at least)
Not too loud even under load
Great for overclocking

Cons: Mounting is a bit of a pain because of how tight everything has to get

Other Thoughts: Great cooler, I have put it on a bunch of machines (I have bought many) and every time I just see great satisfaction from people and myself. It really is one of the best CPU coolers especially when you factor in how inexpensive it is. I have been able to overclock most computers that have it to extreme levels and keep the temps in the 70's at 100% load. Recommend if you are looking for a CPU cooler that will allow some heavy clocks and runs very well, look no further!

DIYPC Ranger-R8-G Black/Green USB 3.0 ATX Mid Tower Gaming Computer Case with 3 x Green Fans (1 x 140mm LED Fan x side, 1x120mm LED Fan x front, 1 x 120mm fan x rear) - Retail
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 week to 1 month

Pros: Green LED Fans
Good looking Chasis
Decals are nice touch
Side view panel with Fan
Easy to work with
Decent cable management system
Nice size
Great Price!
PSU Air Filter

Cons: Speaker for debug came broken (Solder Busted on one wire)
Wish front LED was a bit brighter
Behind motherboard tray area a bit tight in spots for cable management
SSD Mounting is a pain and lacking

Other Thoughts: Great case for the money as this was bought for $49.99. Client loves it and praises it as being a great looking case and I am in full agreement. It has cable management holes which at the price is a very nice feature to have and the LED fans with the case color and decals go hand in hand. It had enough room to hit a Hyper 212 CPU cooler and a full size video card should the need for a better one arise. Would buy this case again but this time I hope I do not have to re-solder the Speaker wire as that was a little annoying.
