Most Critical Review

Avoid! Mine died in less then 3 years

SAMSUNG S27C390H 27" 1920 x 1080 D-Sub, HDMI LCD Monitor

Pros: - Looks great - Quite sleek - Easy buttons

Cons: -Crapped in less then 3 years -Started flickering less then a year after I got it. It was a minor inconvenience at first. So I ignored it -Year 2 started flickering and locking up finally died a day before it's 3rd birthday.

G.O.A.T

Intel Core i7-3820 - Core i7 3rd Gen Sandy Bridge-E Quad-Core 3.6GHz (3.8GHz Turbo Boost) LGA 2011 130W Desktop Processor - BX80619i73820
Intel Core i7-3820 - Core i7 3rd Gen Sandy Bridge-E Quad-Core 3.6GHz (3.8GHz Turbo Boost) LGA 2011 130W Desktop Processor - BX80619i73820

Pros: Best processor on the market today. Forget the gen 4 stuff this is the best processor with the best available board. The bus lines on gen 4 boards like they were welded in with aluminum from recycled PBR cans.

Cons: None

Good starter board

Pros: First motherboard I've ever bought. Runs well no problems.

Cons: Bios takes a while to start up. Not a lot of available port types for cases that offer a diverse front panel.

Big but keep it warm

TOSHIBA PH3200U-1I72 2TB 7200 RPM 64MB Cache SATA 6.0Gb/s 3.5" Desktop Internal Hard Drive Retail Kit

Pros: Huge amount of space. Perfect for a second HDD game and document storage.

Cons: If I had turned my desktop off at night and turned the temperature in my house down at night. The next morning when I wake up and turn my computer on. The HDD makes a very loud fan noise for 5-10 min until it warms up. I haven't noticed any problems from it but a Hard drive making noise worries me. Pretty minor just worth mentioning

So much room for activities

Cooler Master HAF X - High Air Flow Full Tower Computer Case with Windowed Side Panel and USB 3.0 Ports

Pros: So much room! Its a big case can fit ATX-XL boards so it has to be. Cable management is clean and simple. One thing they should probably add is that you can replace the back fan with a 120mm fan for people that want to liquid cool their CPU. I'll probably use this case the rest of my life it's so good.

Cons: Nothing major. Wish it was solid metal there are a few plastic parts that just feels out of place.
