Most Favorable Review

Mods required

SilenX IXN-40C Copper Chipset Cooler
SilenX IXN-40C Copper Chipset Cooler

Pros: Beautiful Design, Awesome mini blue LED fan. Gets the Job Done!

Cons: I have a micro atx MB made by asus, and the mounting did not match up. It those two U shaped metal mounts. I just took the mouting bar and a pair of pliers and bent the hooks till they set firmly in place. not a big deal just a little annoying

Overall Review: It almost impossible to make things like this fit to every format, if something does not fit dont be scared to make mods a little ingenuity never hurt anyone. Mind over matter!

Most Critical Review

you get what you pay for

Pixxo MA-C1G5L Blue 3 Buttons 1 x Wheel USB RF Wireless Optical Mouse
Pixxo MA-C1G5L Blue 3 Buttons 1 x Wheel USB RF Wireless Optical Mouse

Pros: it work while it works!

Cons: i bought five of these for friends and my 3 comps, one remains. if you drop one of these its game over. 4/5 have died from being dropped and hitting the floor, when there is no wire to catch your mouse, an accidental bump can send this thing flying off the desk, then lights out everytime

Overall Review: if your not a cheapo like me, just buy a logitech mouse. i have a logitech that i got like 8 years ago and its still a champion

Best mouse

Logitech G9x Black Two modes scroll USB Wired Laser 5700 dpi Gaming Mouse
Logitech G9x Black Two modes scroll USB Wired Laser 5700 dpi Gaming Mouse

Pros: customize to you liking (weights, grip, led, dpi) the weights do it for me i love a heavy mouse and i made it that way. I work and game on a computer and this mouse is perfect for me to quickly switch between speed and precision. my hand can acually rest on the wide grip, helps the tension in my arm. I got it for 50 bucks on sale, love it!

Cons: i have not found one

Overall Review: I have been using a pc almost everyday for 15 years and this is the best mouse i have ever used, im not saying its the best out there i wouldnt know, but this mouse truly makes me more productive at work and pwn more noobs when i play....YES!

nice buy

Rosewill RCX-Z2 7 blades 80mm reverse ball bearing fan CPU Cooler
Rosewill RCX-Z2 7 blades 80mm reverse ball bearing fan CPU Cooler

Pros: Looks cool, small footprint comparatively. Almost didn't fit, because i have a after market solid copper heatsink on my chipset and a micro atx MB. i had to remove the chipset HS then install the rcx-72 which barely squeezed in place.

Cons: i believe the temp reduction is less than the intel heatsink, I notice with the build i have the temp is about 10 degrees higher than it had been. maybe the thermal paste (artic silver 5) has not worked in yet. these are the dimmest blue leds on any component i have bought for a computer

Overall Review: This looks pretty sweet installed. THE BEST LGA 775 pins I HAVE EVER WORKED WITH! Getting this baby clamped down was so easy a money with a stick could have done it!

Works for me!

MSI G31TM-P35 LGA 775 Intel G31 Micro ATX Intel Motherboard
MSI G31TM-P35 LGA 775 Intel G31 Micro ATX Intel Motherboard

Pros: Love the red board. Everything worked. OCed a 1.6 dual core to 2.2 ghz, not a bad jump, was easy to do. installed into a CM storm scout case with a red theme.

Cons: I found nothing, the little blue light on the board throws off my color scheme, but who care, i look at the screen more!

Overall Review: everything runs so cool, my OCed processor had no fan on the heatsink and still keeps good temps

Best case ive used

Cooler Master Storm Scout SGC-2000-KKN1-GP Black Steel / Plastic ATX Mid Tower Computer Case
Cooler Master Storm Scout SGC-2000-KKN1-GP Black Steel / Plastic ATX Mid Tower Computer Case

Pros: Comes with alot of accesories, drive bay converter, you can turn the lights off, airflow is amazing! i took the fan off my CPU heatsink and over clocked a 1.6 e2140 to around 2.6 and it still stays cool. Awesome my hat's off to cooler master for this case

Cons: none i can find

Overall Review: im on my 4th build and this case is by far my favorite, even over my own personal antec skeleton (which some people hate). 5 eggs, great buy, would buy again
