Solid Case

RAIDMAX Skyline ATX-948WB Black SECC ATX Mid Tower Computer Case
RAIDMAX Skyline ATX-948WB Black SECC ATX Mid Tower Computer Case

Pros: Good looking case. Very good fans, except for (see cons). Fans are quiet and seem to push enough air. Case was well packed and came without exterior damage.

Cons: One of the top case fans came with the fan detached from the fan housing, making it unusable. Quite a disapointment mostly because I have read reviewers saying its hard to find replacements. Will be contacting manufacturer to try to get a replacement without sending back the whole case.

Overall Review: Screw-less drive bays are "ok" not great, seem flimsy. Swing out hard drive bay is amazing. Why doesn't every case have this?

G.SKILL 1GB DDR2 800 (PC2 6400) Desktop Memory Model F2-6400CL5S-1GBNQ
G.SKILL 1GB DDR2 800 (PC2 6400) Desktop Memory Model F2-6400CL5S-1GBNQ

Pros: I ordered 2 sticks of this memory. I received them quick and they were a very low price.

Cons: 1 Stick was DOA and ended up having to ship it back via the RMA system. My only complaint is that newegg ships me a dead stick and then I have to pay almost the cost of the memory to ship it back to them.

Overall Review: Newegg please provide free shipping labels for items that you ship DOA. It would only be fair that we get what we pay for.

Burning Electronics smell.

CORSAIR CX-M Series CX750M 750W 80 PLUS BRONZE Haswell Ready ATX12V & EPS12V Semi-modular Power Supply
CORSAIR CX-M Series CX750M 750W 80 PLUS BRONZE Haswell Ready ATX12V & EPS12V Semi-modular Power Supply

Pros: Worked like a charm for a year. Great modular design.

Cons: Starting smelling burning electronics. Kept it clean and still burned out in a year. I won't buy Corsair again. EVGA seems much better.

Overall Review: Just submitted RMA will update later with Customer Service response if possible.

Antec BP550 Plus 550W Continuous Power ATX12V V2.2 80 PLUS Certified Modular Active PFC Power Supply - Intel Haswell Fully Compatible
Antec BP550 Plus 550W Continuous Power ATX12V V2.2 80 PLUS Certified Modular Active PFC Power Supply - Intel Haswell Fully Compatible

Pros: Works. Provides enough power for my rig. Seems solid. Very good size fan and quality.

Cons: It's not black?

Overall Review: As others have stated it would be nice to have single power connectors as options as opposed to them all being dual or tri power connectors. Good for removing some clutter in the case with extra power cables, but I still ended up with extra connectors.

It works.

Pros: Cheap price. It works. SATA.

Cons: I purchased this with a new motherboard because the new board didn't have an IDE connection. It was only packaged in a plastic sleeve able to move freely in the box that the MB was also packaged in. Could easily cause damage in shipping due to low end packaging. No mounting screws.

Overall Review: Overall I'm happy that it works. Not much else to say about a CD/DVD drive. I haven't had the chance to try to burn a disc yet. Hopefully that will work also.

AMD Phenom II X4 955 Black Edition - Phenom II X4 Deneb Quad-Core 3.2 GHz Socket AM3 125W Processor - HDZ955FBGMBOX
AMD Phenom II X4 955 Black Edition - Phenom II X4 Deneb Quad-Core 3.2 GHz Socket AM3 125W Processor - HDZ955FBGMBOX

Pros: Great price to performance ratio. Upgraded from dual core 3.0Ghz amazing difference. I have read some people complaining about the stock cooler. I would have to disagree, it's not amazing but it does it's job very well. CPU temps stay average 32C and max at 45C. Just have to realize they don't ship with a fan ready for OCing. WEI 7.3

Cons: Chip had some strange brownish color stain on top, came off easily just made me uneasy.
