Pros: 144Hz gaming. 1ms (GTG) Future compatibility with G-Sync. Easy to navigate menu. Bright display. Sharp text.
Cons: Not a glossy screen. Pixel pitch could be better. Huge 3D logo on the base stand.
Other Thoughts: I have been using the Acer P241WAid for years and the monitor has been great! But I decided to upgrade to the latest in Monitor Tech. While researching on what to get, I came across a few articles asking how people can still be gaming on 60Hz monitors? While I personally do not enjoy watching TV past 60Hz, I wondered how this makes a difference in gaming @144Hz or even 120Hz. So I gave the VG248QE a shot to see what it was all about. This has to be, hands down, the best gaming experience I have ever had. I can't believe the difference and that I have been missing out! I can never go back to gaming on a 60Hz monitor. All my games and even windows is super smooth. Perfect example is when I loaded Max Payne 3 or BF3. The frames are displayed and ready to go. No tearing of any kind. Fluid motion. At this point, I'm not really sure if G-Sync would make this monitor better. It's that good, as-is. Also, don't let the 3D capable turn you away. I'm never going to use the monitor for 3D capabilities. So if your serious about gaming or want to have the smooth gaming experience, don't hold yourself back and pick up one of these monitors.READ FULL REVIEW
This review is from: Phanteks PH-TC90LS 92mm PWM fan UFB (Updraft Floating Balance) CPU Cooler
Pros: Looks good. A perfect low-profile solution if you are making a HTPC. Silent to moderate noise level.
Cons: Not effective at removing heat off the 2011 processors. On a 1155 socket this should do decent as long as you have room for the fan to breathe.
Other Thoughts: There are other Low-Profile fans available for the same price that do a better job at keeping your processor cool. This fan did not meet expectations on the 130W 2011 CPU's. Average temps were 60-65c Idle, 87 - 90c+ Full load. This is on stock clocks and not overclocked. I would not recommend any overclocking with the cooler.READ FULL REVIEW
This review is from: Rosewill FBM-01-W Dual Fans MicroATX Mini Tower Computer Case
Pros: Everything you need for a Micro ATX Motherboard. Fits a 7950. :)
Cons: Very thin steel. Color mismatch from the case to the bezel. No place for cable management.
Other Thoughts: You get what you pay for. I just needed a cheap case and that's what I paid for. 4 eggs for getting the job done. If you looking for a nice white case then please look elsewhere.READ FULL REVIEW
