Good Drive

WD AV-25 1TB 5400 RPM 16MB Cache SATA 3.0Gb/s 2.5-Inch Internal Hard Drive - WD10JUCT
WD AV-25 1TB 5400 RPM 16MB Cache SATA 3.0Gb/s 2.5-Inch Internal Hard Drive - WD10JUCT

Pros: had this drive hooked up for little over 2 weeks running all the time. It isn't running any operating system as of yet, using this as a Slave drive to run movies, doing back ups, file transfers and so far its been doing great, The drive runs Very quite and runs nice and cool, so far hasn't gotten very hot.

Cons: So far i haven't run into any, Will post again if i do

Overall Review: here are some specks that i got so far testing this drive. Sequential Read : 35. MB/s Sequential Write : 32. MB/s running a benchmark test. there are other tests it runs, but most like to just see how fast the drive is. so i listed that, other tests i done: Full Format: little over 5hrs Transerfing 539 gb to drive took about 4hrs . Transfering 530gb back to other drive took around 3hrs On file transfers to drive i was getting around 22 to 23mbs average, while i was transfering files to other drives i was getting around 33 to 34mbs average speeds. Watching movies from drive it performed very good without any problems. If you are going to be using this drive as an HTPC drive, a back up drive to store movies files etc. or using this in a DVR I would recommend this drive, Its not the fastest, but it stays cool, runs very quite, and does a good job so far, Not sure on long term as i only tested this for only a few weeks. But it has been running all the time with out any problems, I will post again in another couple weeks after running more tests, but as of now. it has been a good reliable drive... and using a drive in those areas i just mentioned, you need something that runs cool and quite and that is reliable,

1st one good, 2nd DOA

ASRock 970 EXTREME3 AM3+ AMD 970 + SB950 SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 ATX AMD Motherboard

Pros: Liked the first one, its working realy good right now, using it to do this review, got another one, Its dead, won't boot up, no screen on monitor.

Cons: most motherboards i get are usualy good, i get bad ones here and there, Its bad when i'm building it for a customer, and i have to wait on another one.

Overall Review: New Egg is taking it back, and i'm getting another MB. Not giving this board a bad rating because i got one doa, it happens, now if i got several, then that would be differant.

Pros: Gives a 5.25 drive bay for dvd or blue ray player. Decent room inside. Don't feel to flimsy, gives you 3 fans.

Cons: No 3.5" external dive bay.

Overall Review: Good budget case. Enough room for a gaming card. Looks good also.

Pros: Runs the 1st gen ryzen cpu's fine,

Cons: Put in a Ryzen 2200, nothing, would not post, put in a Ryzen 1700, booted right up, I did a bios update, nothing. ended up buying a Ryzen 1200, working great. would not run a Ryzen 2nd gen cpu.

it works good for surfing, BUT..

Pros: good for surfing and youtub.

Cons: does not work on Torrent sights will turn itself off saying this does not support Torrent sights

Overall Review: if you download any Torrents, you need something else. if you want it for surfing or watching online video, its fine.

Nice Case, good cable management

Corsair Carbide Series CC-9011050-WW SPEC-01 Black ATX Mid Tower Gaming Computer Case
Corsair Carbide Series CC-9011050-WW SPEC-01 Black ATX Mid Tower Gaming Computer Case

Pros: Its a nice case, don't weigh a ton, good ventelation, good room, fits my gaming card, ryzen full size motherboard, and everything really well, has nice cable management also, so you can hide the cables.

Cons: My only big complant is, No 3 1/2" drive bay so i can put in a card reader, i'll have to use the 2nd 5 1/4" drive bays, but knew that buying it.

Overall Review: If you want a nice case, good room, not to expansive, this will fit the bill nicely. Not gaudy like some other cases, it just looks nice.
