Pros: Drive works good. It seems to have no trouble with anything i throw at it.
Cons: Its not a con to the actual drive per say but if your going to buy one of these try to get one bundled with software so you don't have to run out and buy some for blu-ray playback
Pros: Ram is detected my motherboard and runs great right out of the box. The 1866 timing is as easy as setting the memory profile and your done. Set it and forget it. The heat spreader dose not get in the way of anything and is not a pain on your eyes.
Cons: No cons
Overall Review: I should have purchased more of this !!!
Pros: Built in video is nice for a budget build of the builder that cant afford a video card at time of build. Its an Intel Cpu. low power draw allows you to put in a smaller power supply to save a bit of money on your electric bill.
Cons: I cant seem to get a aftermarket cpu cooler that will allow me to cook eggs on my processor for breakfast !!!
Overall Review: Im happy with my purchase and im very glad i went with this and not the i7. I am a gamer and do a bit of video editing and for me this is plenty and then some.
Pros: A great os at a great price i can say nothing more.
Cons: Not really a con but would be nice to have both 64 bit and 32 bit media.
Pros: Comes with enough hardware to let you build a new computer with ease. The handle is perfect for that lan party or even just moving around. The filters on this case keep out allot of dust. Side mounted hard drives give you ample room for wiring. Great room.
Cons: I have no idea why this case cant cook and clean for me. I mean common i don't wanna get up and move when im in the middle of gaming :O
Overall Review: The only thing i can see that really needs to change is the covers need to expand out a bit closer to the edges to help with better wiring room. Love the handle !!!
Pros: Great card fps is sweet on the games i play. Works very well in my antec 902 case.
Cons: Really only one con. The fan speed dose not kick up fast enough when gaming so the card gets hot. high 70s in my book are to much. You should change your fan speed profile to hit 75 percent fan speed at 65c tops. I love evga and have purchased your items for years. I also think that these profiles are set this way to cause a card after a few years of high heats to fail wich is sad.
Overall Review: current system build for this card is as fallows.
i7 920, asus p6t motherboard, 12gb ram, mushkin ssd drives,antec 902 case,evga 560ti video card,H80 cpu cooler,ocz 750 psu
running a bit overclocked at 4.6 ghz hyperthreading off.
Pros: The movable fans are great. It dose a good job cooling my dell xps l702x. Its lightweight yet durable and also has a decent angle for typing on. This cooler would be perfect with a couple small mods see below....
Cons: Ok Cooler Master hears the deal. Altho this cooler dose a good job cooling it fails at a very simple yet totally mandatory thing. Your cooler dose not hold laptops to it. You have a metal base for the laptop to sit on a strap that is totally useless on every laptop i own and the rubber feet at the top dose not hold even my xps l702x laptop witch is a huge laptop. Also you have the room at the bottom of the cooler for a bumper to stop a laptop from sliding off but you make no use of it. Read my other thoughts for fixes.
Overall Review: Ok. First off to make this cooler a perfect cooler it would require the following fixes.
1. On the top side of the cooler you should have a rubber base that extends over the entire top of it. The rubber need only be a very thin layer as long as it has good grip.
2. On the front edge of the cooler you have metal holes for the fans but what you haven't thought of is adding 2 L shaped brackets that fit into those holes and act as a stopper to keep the laptop more secure. The elastic band is a joke its junk and is a stupid idea to a very simple fix.
3. And this is not a fix but a gripe. I have been buying your products for years cooler master and love most of them. My gripe is that when you design a laptop cooler you need to use it for a few weeks think about it a bit more before you release it to the public. The fixes i have added if used would give you a close to perfect laptop cooler. All im asking is that you take the time on your products and release quality merchandise.
Pros: The board is very heavy duty and works well out of the box. Assembly and first boot went off without a hitch. The 5 year warranty is great. I quit using asus a few years ago and went with gigabyte boards back when asus was having some qa problems. Im happy i picked this asus board tho its very nice tons of features and an overall great pick.
Cons: My only real con i ran into is setting the ram to run in ddr1600 mode. i was using a corsair vengeance 16gb kit and every time i set the ram at 1600 it would reset it to 1333. The fix for this is to go into bios and manualy set the voltage for this memory to 1.5 volts the motherboard was trying to run it at 1.65v. I also had to manualy set the ram timing to 9-9-9-24-41 and also disable ecc mode in the nb settings. The ai suite will not install on a fresh windows 7 install unless you patch it before you try to install the software. asus really needs to step it up with there software.
Overall Review: Despite having a few problems getting the memory to run at full speed this is a great board. I overclocked my 550black with ease however since the intended cpu the bd is not out yet i cannot say how it performs with that. This is a great motherboard tho and i would recommend it to anyone with enough knowledge to set it up properly.
Pros: The mounting is very easy. The cooling is excellent. You can mount the radiator with the tubes aiming anyway you like and it works fine.
Cons: The tape on the black corsair plastic piece that sits on top of the pump did not stick and has fell off i will be contacting corsair about this problem. Corsair needs to set up a safety system for amd motherboards so people don't tighten the water block down too hard.
Overall Review: Overall great product its cooling my amd 550 black very well with temps in the 20s. This cooler went in my amd bd build consisting of an antec df-85 corsair vengeance 16 gb ram kit and an asus sabertooth 990fx motherboard.
Pros: Great amount of room. the cable storage side has plenty of room for cable management. The ssd bay at the top is cool. I like the hot swap brackets that your given and the fact that your drives come out the front so easy. The dual rear 120mm fans are perfect if you want to install liquid cooling and you can still use the side panel fan if you like.
Cons: The only con that i have is a couple of the fan power pins fell out the connectors feel very cheap.
Overall Review: I was going to go with the corsair 650d but i got this case instead and im very happy with it. There are plenty of drive bays alot of room for your video cards and overall it is a very nice case for a new build. This case is is for my amd bd build. i purchased a sabertooth 990fx 16 gigs or corsair vengeance ram a corsair h80 cooler and everything fit together like a glove.
Pros: Great cooling Decent price newegg shipping was fast. This cooler is all that i wanted in a cooler it dose a great job on my old i 920 overclocked to 4.1. Temps stay in the 40s.
Rubber hose is awesome you can put it just about anywhere you want its so flexible.
Cons: Installing was a bit different i had no problem understanding the directions but im not a fan of the twist you have to give the block to lock it into place.
Overall Review: asus p6t
6 gigs ddr3 ocz gold ram
antec 902 case
wd terabyte hd
Pros: Its a good mouse works great its cheap and it has enought buttons to make me happy.
Cons: the mouse wheel sucks but what can i expect for a cheap gaming mouse.
Overall Review: i purchased this mouse for my brother and so far he is happy with it. His only gripe is that the mouse scroll sucks.
Pros: Great fan low noise high cfm
Cons: cant use it in a blendor ?
Overall Review: this is just an overall great product if your not using this fan you should me its my cpu fan.
Pros: So i feel like my fingers are having some sort of massage treatment. every time i touch this mouse. its pure awsomeness so far this is the best mouse i have ever had since my start into the computer world back in 1985 i just dont know what to say other then its awsome everything is perfect on the mouse and its made for me a lefty yay
Cons: it dosent do my dishes and it keeps me happy :O
Overall Review: great mouse the buttons work perfect the scroll is perfect
Pros: no wireless drops great ping times good for gaming i give it 5 stars. i think its odd that this is the same as the 3700 model but to be honest i dont really care since its just pure awsomeness
Cons: dosent wash laundy and make me food.
Pros: very quiet keys and the texture of the keys feels great
Cons: no cons really other then newegg charging an arm and a leg for shipping the shipping was as much as the keyboard other then that i love the thing. and shame on you newegg youve always gave me awsome shipping prices till now
Overall Review: i really like this keyboard
Pros: Huge surface area. Non slide bottom.
Cons: you might need a bit more room on your desk for a mouse pad
Overall Review: this thing is pure awsomeness i love it.
Pros: quick release drive bay. good room for a compact case.
Cons: the material is very cheap and easy to bend. the hard drive mounting area is a bit weird but i guess it works.there are 2 openings on the side cover for fans but it dose not come with fans for them.
Overall Review: i built a machine with this case and had a few minor problems with it being the metal is so weak on the back side putting in the motherboard plate and the video card actualy bent the case thats how week it is youd think youd want alot firmer case since your motherboard is very close to the weakest part of this case. personlay i would not invest in this case again i would go with somthing of a bit better construction
Pros: No frills board gets the job done. very stable with the latest bios update.Extremely easy bios updating thru the use of a usb flash drive rocks .This is my first core i5 board and my first intel board purchase. you may say that other brands have this or that but i wanted a stable board that works great and i got it. this board is great. Its built very solid and dose its job perfectly. board temps are room temp cpu under full load 40c idle is room temp
Cons: Well it dosent support i5 32nm chips without a bios flash but here is the good news. Dont worry about compatibility issues if your using a i5 there is a very simple way to update the bios using a flash drive that will even work with an unsupported i5 processor. this is the first time i have ever got a board that allowed me to flash it even with a unsupported processor way to go intel woot! now see it wasent really a gripe was it lol
Overall Review: dp55wb running an i5 650 with a coolermaster elite 341 case. Core temps at full load are 40.c under normal load the core and motherboard run at room temp.
Pros: Well the ram works great. Installed in into the motherboard and i was good to go.no issues with it no problems at all. This ram is for somone that dosent care about overclocking and just wants dependable ram.
Cons: my one complaint is newegg shipping i orderd this ram for a system build with next day shipping and wated 2 days 2 recieve the ram. honeslty i think there making money off me doing 2 day shipping when i payed for next day.
Overall Review: the ram was installed in a dp55wb motherboard with a i5 650 everything ran perfect except the flashing of the motherboard to accept the i5 cpu was weird but it worked and my i5 is up and running.
Pros: FAST***was not doa *** everything went togther well the board booted the first time with my q6600 no problems. now for the bad stuff
Cons: the chipset gets very got and i noticed the stock chipset heatsink is loose fitting.
VISTA USERS IMPORTANT****************
When installing vista on this motherboard do not have your lan connection pluged in at all. Currently windows vista detects the wrong chipset and install drivers that will lock up your machine or cause it to restart with bosd.
again if your installing vista do not connect your computer to the internet untill you install the drivers from the motherboard cd.***************************************
Overall Review: ************************************************************Read above and dont forget what i said for vista users will save you hours of fustration.
the board seems to be super stabe for me with no other complaints.
sys specs q6600 4x1gb ram 8600gt video card. dual 500gb stripe raid setup.
for you wow players even with this video card i get a framerate of around 250 all the time its great.
Pros: just a great controller very responsive
Overall Review: not wirless but to me that makes it better
Pros: cheap newegg is fast
great for gaming
Cons: dead pixles 2 of them color blending
Overall Review: not that happy with this at least i diddnt go broke on it altho its great at gaming.
