GIGABYTE GM-FORCE M7 THOR Black 5 Buttons 1 x Wheel USB Wired Laser 6000 dpi Gaming Mouse
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: 1 month to 1 year

Pros: It's comfortable, doesn't skip around and lag like some mice do, has a changeable DPI.. the extra buttons are nice and not in an awkward location, the mouse wheel isn't annoying and squeaky, it's ambidextrous.. etc. etc...

Cons: I was kind of hoping that I could find a version of this mouse that had red LED's instead of blue LED's because blue light is so much pervasive than red light. It can be annoying when you're trying to sleep to have a bright glare instead of a warm glow reflecting off of your ceiling.

Other Thoughts: This mouse would be a lot more aesthetically pleasing if it had red LED's both in the DPI and behind the THOR logo similar to how the Razer Naga has the Razer trademark backlit.

G.SKILL Ripjaws Series 8GB (2 x 4GB) 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM DDR3 1600 (PC3 12800) Desktop Memory Model F3-12800CL9D-8GBRL
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: 1 month to 1 year

Pros: They're perfect for my build and they look better in person than in the pictures provided. If for some reason you're shopping for ram by looks and don't get this ram because you think it doesn't look as good as you would like, think again. These sticks really do look good, besides there's a suggestive joke on the box.

Cons: They don't have LED's on them.. that wold be kind of cool...

ZALMAN Z11 Plus HF1 Black Steel / Plastic ATX Mid Tower Computer Case
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: 1 week to 1 month

Pros: The case looks nice and has some cool features; looks like it will do nicely as far as cooling goes (will still add at least 1 fan anyway). I asked a relative what he thought and his response was along the lines of, "I'm afraid it will rev up and take off at a high velocity".. it does look rather like a fast car.
Also, dust filters on the front and bottom are a nice touch.

Cons: I was rather embarrassed that I could not open the case on the first go. I had to remove the face of the case to use both hands to get enough leverage to slide the side panels off. This failure is not for lack of trying, I just didn't want to bend the poor things by yanking on them so hard. I fixed this by bending the clips on the front slightly away from the side panel to provide less resistance when being pulled. They can now be removed without first removing the face.

Other Thoughts: There isn't much cable management room, but it's a mid tower so I was expecting much more than I got and I can certainly make due.
The case comes with room for a 140mm fan in the front, but only supplies you with a 120.. I find that odd. Every other case I've bought has come with fan slots that have the largest fan they can fit, with zalman generally being an aesthetically pleasing brand I would assume that they would fit as much LED power in there as possible, not to mention airflow...
