Pros: - great looking board
- love the voulume knob =D
Cons: - The keys feel cheap and i fear with time they will not make the long run =/
Overall Review: - i will post later down the road if the key board makes it but hey its a $16 keyboard so i cant cry to much.
Pros: - I just cant believe how fast this thing is =D
- for the price i just dont believe there is a better proccesor i mean iv been useing it for gamming and it handles it all with no bottlenecking from my 5870 video card.
Overall Review: - The stock cooler was pathetic but it does work.
- I did not OC it and my case is well cooled and it stays in mid 40C under load.
Pros: - Does what it advertises
- very well made for the price and sturdy
- fit all my parts good and the fan it came with wasent the best so i made it the front fan nd added on an aftermarket rear fan
- install was easy came with great instructions and many screws and bolts.
Cons: -The fan it came with was not up to par imo
Overall Review: - NewEgg had great shipping and go my entire order in great time
Pros: this card is the best in its price range. runs crysis on high wil very little problums. the fan works great in my case (antec 902) and at 11in it fit perfectly.
Cons: when i bought mine i had a $30 rebate that im still waiting for and was told my product dident aualify when there website clearly states it does...
Overall Review: the card works great so no eggs off, im running it with an OC i3 with a 550 watt PS and no probs what so ever.
Pros: -Large case fits my mobo perfectly
-amazingly sturdy case
-fan contoller and all the fans work great
-love the washable built in fan filters
- LED's are not over powering either.
Cons: -almost none just took off an egg for the lack of air to my bottom mounted fan PSU but it hasent stoped working to heat so thats cool
-cable management was ok i believe for this size of case it could be much better planned out.
Overall Review: -This is my first personal good case , upgreading from a power up case that was garbage.
-Love how sturdy everything feels and u can tell it was built really well.
-My temperatures are so much lower now and the look is great on my desk.
- Though NewEgg is usually really great Best Buy does have this case for $70 and thats a great buy for how much case u get.
Pros: -Great price for this product
-Pushed it pretty hard all the way up to 4.09Ghz and its completely stable =D , this thing OC makes a great budget build for a gamming PC i have almost never maxed it out and with aftermarket cooler under max load it only gets to 66C =D
Cons: - Cant think of many but that stock cooler was the most pathetic piece of plastic iv ever seen... i know its cheaper in all but even the i5 gets a much better cooler, i mean how much more would it cost with a better cooler?
-Also upset to see that many AMD's have the same specks for much less but i believe in Intells quality and customer care ;)
Overall Review: -Mobo MSI H55M
-i3 OC to 4.09Ghz
-Geforce GTX 465 1G
-2 WD Cavalier black
Pros: -Easy install to my Midtower case
-Easy to use Bio's
-Great heat control with my OC Proccessor
-Just amazing price
Cons: -None so far plan to keep purchacing from MSI
Overall Review: -Im running an overclocked i3 540 at 4.09Ghz, i had to manualy do this in the bio's. i originaly used the OC Genie but it would only go to 3.5Ghz and not adjust the voltage so i manualy went in and did the OC myself it was super easy and i perfer to do it that way anyways.
Pros: -Fist off the board looks awsome
-It easily detected my ram voltage at 1.3V
-The board has lotsa room and yet still is compact and fits easily in my Mid Tower case.
-Great Price for the quality of the board i purchased it at $92
Cons: -The OC Genie dident work well on my PC (running an i3 540), when i pused the button the PC wouldent turn on so i went in to the BIOS and manualy OC to 4.12GHz and the thing works great. I only knocked off one egg becasue the BIOS worked so well.
Overall Review: Never used MSI before but if this is the quality of there work for that price i am now a fan and will be a future custumer.
Pros: -Install was as easy as the stock CPU cooler that came with my i3
-Very quite even on full blast
-I overclocked my i3 540 to 4.13GHz and Prime95 tested at 65degC (wich is ok)
Cons: -Thermal paste that came with it is garbage (purchased articsilver 5 works much better)
-The clip connection seems cheap but so far its able to hold itself up, but i fear overtime the weight of the cooler will casuse some problums on the plastic clips.
-Only gave 4 eggs and not 5 becasue i think it should be able to keep my i3 cooler but its not bad.
Overall Review: Looks cool in my case and just barly fit. I have about 3/4 of an inch to spare from it touching the side of my case.
Pros: Improved on much from Fallout 3, the new ammo types are an awsome addition to stratagy, love the new guns, and an ok storyline.
Cons: The game feels more like an expansion of fallout 3 than a "new" game like the full price i just paid (luckuly i paid only $50 for PC than $60 that conolers have to pay).
-I ran this game on the GTS 250(Palit E-Green series) and like the first review things felt fairly glitchy even though my fps's were fine.
Overall Review: Overall its a good game with a fairly decent storyline and tons to do but is it worth the price of a "new" game i do not agree wish it had more of an expansion price for thats really what the game is.
Pros: -Very large, more than expected for 20in
-all pixils work
-For this price and has an HDMI port u just cant beat it
Cons: -Wider than expected and barly fits on my comp table but is that really a bad thing, im not sure but its the only complaint i can come up with.
Overall Review: this thing is great and there is no better buy for the price.
Pros: -I paid just over $100 and thats what i got.
-plays all the games i want at decent ability.
-love the fan controller program and overclocking software.
-runs cool and my case has bad airflow, idles around 41C and 48C under load.
-currenly running the card on a generic 450 PSU and no probs.
Cons: -Looks ugly in my opion.
-collects dust easily but prob my falt.
Overall Review: Runs as advertise and will be more than happy to purchase from palit again.
Pros: Fit in the case nicely. low heat. great price.
Cons: my system cannot detect the full amount of space advertised, it can only detect about 590GB
Overall Review: makes a noise like iv never heard a HDD make before... it doesent sound broken but when it spins it sounds like a pully on my jeep... but hey its not loud just different.
Pros: Im running this on an EVGA H55V bord that auto dectected that the voltage should be 1.35V.
got the full 1333 speed.
heat almost is no problum with any kind of airflow.
helps run my gamming PC with only 450watt pcu.
Cons: none so far
Overall Review: Love the look of it. all silver with G-skill written in polished aliminum. makes my case look nice and classy
