G.SKILL Ares Series 8GB (2 x 4GB) 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM DDR3 1600 (PC3 12800) Desktop Memory Model F3-1600C9D-8GAB
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 day to 1 week

Pros: - Performs as expected
- G.Skill is a reputable brand
- Comes with a G.Skill sticker that you could put on your case if you wanted to.

Cons: - None

Other Thoughts: - Let's be honest, I got these because they were blue which matched the color scheme of the build they went in.

XFX Double Dissipation R9-290A-EDFD Radeon R9 290 4GB 512-Bit GDDR5 PCI Express 3.0 x16 HDCP Ready CrossFireX Support Video Card
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 day to 1 week

Pros: - Was on sale and had a substantial rebate, making this the cheapest 290 available anywhere by far.
- One of the nicest cards I've ever seen that didn't have a back plate.
- Quiet - I never heard it get loud, even when stress testing under load.
- Performs as expected

Cons: - Runs a bit warm for my liking, even at idle, but that's normal for this series of cards.
- I noticed some really low minimum frames while benchmarking and during normal gameplay when compared to my GTX 970. Pretty minor, definitely still playable but did result in me taking off 1 egg.

Other Thoughts: - Bees

DEEPCOOL TESSERACT SW Mid Tower Computer with Side Window and 2 Blue LED Fans CaseSGCC+PLASTIC+RUBBER COATING
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 day to 1 week

Pros: - Nice looking front panel - better IRL than in pictures, it's a deeper blue. Plus, it has a nice sturdy rubberized feel to it.
- Comes with 4 small anti-vibration pads for the PSU
- Feel pretty sturdy overall for a case in this price bracket
- Surprisingly sturdy 2.5" and 3.5" drive caddies

Cons: - Extremely limited cable management space behind mobo tray
- No CPU/exhaust fan cutout, you'll have to route them behind the mobo before you install it.
- Fan power cables are too short, not sleeved.
- Weird/unattractive fan grills on the side window. Honestly this is my biggest complaint about the case. It's my own fault, I didn't look closely enough at the pictures before I ordered it.

Other Thoughts: - I realize my cons are pretty nit-picky. Overall it's not a bad case, but I do think there are better choices at this price.
