Intel Pentium G6950 Clarkdale Dual-Core 2.8GHz LGA 1156 73W Desktop Processor Intel HD Graphics BX80616G6950
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 week to 1 month

Pros: Easily overclocked to 3.12 with stock fan with very little temp increase (1 or 2 degrees C). Will overclock further once I get a better cooler (i dont want to take any chances). Plays blu ray once overclocked. Very cheap for LGA 1156. Being an LGA 1156 it is a great starter CPU. It allows you to upgrade CPU to an i3, i5, or i7 in the future without needing to get a different mobo.

Cons: Didn't render the color when playing blu ray right out of the box. Easily overclocked it to 2.95 and played blu ray. Overclocked again to 3.12 and played blu ray even better.

Other Thoughts: Read articles about this CPU and they overclocked it to 4.5 and killed it, but got another one and pushed it to 4.2 and worked fine with aftermarket cooler and fan. Plan on overclocking it to at 3.5 once I get a better cooler.

Rosewill FB-02 Black ATX Mid Tower Computer Case, come with 1x 80mm Fan
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 week to 1 month

Pros: Simple looking design, no leds, no clear side panel. Great for media centers since the only led is for the power button. Plenty of bays for hard drives.

Cons: Only 3 possible places to put fans. Could potentially have ventilation problems if you have too much stuff in the case. If you put a regular size fan in front (80x80x25mm) hard drives in the upper bay hang out over the motherboard. In my case it hangs over the 6 sata connectors on my mobo. This could be a problem if i don't get a thinner fan.

Other Thoughts: Used this case to build a media center that will eventually have 4+ hard drive for media storage plus 1 for OS and software.

LG Black 10X BD-ROM 16X DVD-ROM SATA Internal Blu-ray Disc Combo Model CH10LS20 R LightScribe Support
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 week to 1 month

Pros: Worked right out of the box to install the OS on my new computer. Software that came with works great to play blu rays. I don't have many blu rays as this is my first player, but they played fine.

Cons: none at the moment just hope that this last for a while and doesn't become outdated by not having firmware updates.
