Pros: Cheap board.
Overall Review: I can see this as a pretty nice home office board.
Pros: It's a very nice processor. I haven't had the need to OC it seeing that its already clocked twice as fast as the cpu in my previous computer (dell inspiron 1505), and faster than my friends quad-core. I recommend this to anyone that doesn't really want to break the bank, but still wants great performance. And who doesn't want that?
Cons: none that I can think of.
Pros: Um... it powers my computer.
Cons: I have to physically plug it into an outlet.
Overall Review: It came with a ton of cables attached. more so than most of the psu's ive worked with. It's not really a con cause they may come useful down the road, but it doe's cause cooling problems in my Antec 900 when the cables aren't hidden very well.
Pros: It runs great. I haven't had a big problem yet (like most mac adds say you will) It looks great. people say the Aero theming can bog down a system, but so far it's been smooth sailing. It also comes with a voucher for a free upgrade to 7 when it comes out, so that's a plus.
Cons: Windows defender just crapped out randomly, I'm searching the interwebs to find a solution, but it's no biggy. I have a pretty good antivirus that does everything that defender does.
Overall Review: It's not recognizing the nTune software. I'm hoping that a re-install will fix that, so its not a con yet.
Pros: It's been a great board so far. Been running it almost non-stop for a few days now and hasn't had a hiccup yet. I have a friend that has the XFX version of this board and apparently his has been perfect as well.
Cons: (not sure if this is standard on all boards) the IEEE connector seems to be in a strange spot. If I decide to upgrade to SLI, it's going to be useless. And seeing that the WiFi kit that comes with the board uses the IEEE connector, that may become useless too.
Overall Review: It hasn't killed itself yet so I guess its a good board.
Pros: It's a great game, and with my new GPU it looks great too...
Cons: Doesn't install itself.
Pros: Great case. The fans provide excellent cooling, after a rough gaming session I opened it up, felt my graphics card, and it was physically cold. It's a great size too, not too big or small, A little on the tight side with a few of the cables though.
Cons: Like i said in the Pros, the cable situation could be a little better. With the black Fan-ring on the back of one of the HDD cages its pushing a good number of my cables into my mobo. I may be finding a way to remove it in the future, but for now it'll do. Also got caught up when there weren't enough mobo stand-offs provided. No big deal though, just swiped one from one of my old computers. When the box arrived it was open on one end, I don't know if this was done on Newegg's end or UPS' end, but nothing was missing (except for a stand-off lol.)
Overall Review: Overall a great buy. A few minor ticks, but not really enough to take away an egg. I would recommend this case to anyone.
Pros: This drive was worth the money. Its a good size, decent speed, running Firefox off of it as I'm typing this. Not too much to be unhappy with, except...
Cons: this sucker can run really hot. It's not face-melting hot, but close. If you hold your finger on it for too long after it's been plugged in for a while, you will feel some discomfort.
Overall Review: All in all its a good drive. I would give it 5 eggs if the thing didn't get so hot, but it does what it needs to do.
