Hitachi Ultrastar 7K3000 HUA723020ALA641 2TB 7200RPM 64MB Cache SATA 6.0Gb/s 3.5
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: 1 month to 1 year

Pros: lots of storage capacity
good price
pretty fast for a HDD

Cons: under heavy load this thing sounds like a jet engine revving up
once the jet engine gets good and revved up I hear a miss in it somewhere
(It spins really loudly and I can hear the read/write head flailing about when under heavy load)

Other Thoughts: Nothing else really, it has been in this PC for almost a year now and still works like when it was first installed, so I guess the noise is normal for this HDD. This drive is used as a secondary drive with the OS on an SSD, so I don't know how it would perform or sound like as a main drive.

MSI Z97-Gaming 7 LGA 1150 Intel Z97 HDMI SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 ATX Intel Motherboard

5 out of 5 eggs If your gaming on a 5th gen Intel CPU then this is a great choice 01/19/2016

This review is from: MSI Z97-Gaming 7 LGA 1150 Intel Z97 HDMI SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 ATX Intel Motherboard

Pros: Tons of BIOS options
BIOS has a mouse and keyboard interface that's nicely laid out and easy to navigate with lots of options
Very nice heat management

Cons: SATA ports are directly under the PCI slot best situated for the GPU which makes them very hard to access.
I wish it had more USB 2.0 slots

Other Thoughts: My cons weren't enough to cost this an egg, so even though they were listed as cons I'd more likely call them minor grumbles than true cons.

CORSAIR HX Series HX750 750W ATX12V 2.3 / EPS12V 2.91 SLI Ready CrossFire Ready 80 PLUS GOLD Certified Modular Active PFC Power Supply New 4th Gen CPU Certified Haswell Ready
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: 1 month to 1 year

Pros: Makes all the whirly bits whirl and all the blinky bits blink

Cons: um... yeah, I'm at a loss on this line

Other Thoughts: On a more serious note, this power supply works great, power output is even and stable, cables are a good length and easy to route and organize, PSU fan moves a ton of air and it's quiet as a mouse napping. If your looking for a 750W PSU then this should definitely be one to consider.
