Pros: It's wifi
Cons: It is plug and play for windows 8 which means nothing since no one wants to use windows 8 because it blows. I had to download the drivers on a different computer and burn them on a dvd. this may be no big deal to some people but for me it was very irritating and I came across malicious downloads pretending to be driver downloads. Eventually I found the right site with the correct drivers to make the thing work but I am displeased that they would waste their time making it plug and play for windows 8 instead of windows 7 furthermore it does come with a driver disc but it is a strange miniature disc and my brdvdrom could not recognize the miniature disc. They are imbeciles not to give you a normal installation disc that is compatible with newer optical drivesREAD FULL REVIEW
Pros: It's a six core monster with hyperthreading so basically you get 12 virtual cores which is as awsome as it gets unless you want to fork out over $2000 for a server processor like a Xeon. This is the best you can buy.
Cons: I'm having trouble overclocking this processor. Whenever I try to overclock it I get a "cpu overvoltage error" and my system becomes unstable. As far as I'm concerned a processor that costs over a thousand dollars should be designed for overclocking and I should never have a problem. I'm using a brand new ASUS rampage iv black edition which seems to be working fine so there is no good excuse for difficulty overclocking this processor which is why I give it only 3 stars (or eggs) out of 5. Since this processor is supposedly the best you can buy it should never give you an overvoltage error. I'm actually quite upset but I'm not a processor or motherboard expert so I'm not totallysure what's going on and the hassle of sending the processor back and getting a newer one is just too much. I had enough hassle building my system and I don't have time to send it back and wait for another processor.READ FULL REVIEW
This review is from: Rosewill THOR V2 Gaming ATX Full Tower Computer Case - Supports up to E-ATX / XL-ATX, comes with Four Fans - 1 x Front Red LED 230mm Fan, 1 x Top 230mm Fan, 1 x Side 230mm Fan, 1 x Rear 140mm Fan
Pros: This case looks good and feels good. It's big enough for extended ATX boards but does get a little cluttered when you add a liquid cooling system and lots of components. There are bigger cases but they can cost an arm and a leg. This case was very affordable and is high quality being made almost entirely out of metal witha few plastic components. You will not find a better case for the price although cooler master seems to also have some good deals.
Cons: For people with multiple graphics cards and multiple hard drives and liquid cooling systems you may want an even bigger case but this case is plenty big for most normal systems. Like I said adding a liquid cooling system made the case a little cluttered but there is space to add even more but it would be really really cluttered and difficult to organize all the wires and cables.READ FULL REVIEW
