Most Favorable Review

AMD FX-6300 - FX-6000 Series Vishera 6-Core 3.5 GHz Socket AM3+ 95W Desktop Processor - FD6300WMHKBOX

Pros: Much better than a duo core Games that need more CPU than GPU play well. Can multitask

Cons: Stock heat sink is kinda lame bit it works alright

Most Critical Review

Works

CORSAIR CX series CX750 750W 80 PLUS BRONZE Haswell Ready ATX12V & EPS12V Power Supply
CORSAIR CX series CX750 750W 80 PLUS BRONZE Haswell Ready ATX12V & EPS12V Power Supply

Pros: Powers my computer

Cons: I can hear a faint coil whine for the first 5 min after starting my computer. Non-Modular (knew that)

Overall Review: I wish I could give it 3.5 eggs.

Good Mobo

MSI H110M ECO LGA 1151 Intel H110 HDMI SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.1 Micro ATX Intel Motherboard
MSI H110M ECO LGA 1151 Intel H110 HDMI SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.1 Micro ATX Intel Motherboard

Pros: Works, good value.

Cons: Only has 2 SATA ports while the MoBo has space for 4. I am willing to pay the extra few dollars it cost to solder on the remaining 2 SATA ports.

Overall Review: I recommend this MoBo if you are making a budget build. I used the i3 in it. Works great. I think it is unwise to only include 2 SATA ports, however I assume MSI has its reasons.

Good mouse pad

GIGABYTE GP-MP8000 Extreme Accuracy Gaming Mouse Pad
GIGABYTE GP-MP8000 Extreme Accuracy Gaming Mouse Pad

Pros: -Mouse glides smoothly -Firm and squishy at the same time -Looks cool

Cons: -Design is a little more faded than i would have liked -Very slight fraying after a month of use (2 threads in)

Overall Review: Its bigger than I would have thought, but that is good. If you are looking for an affordable mouse pad that does the job then look no further!

Microsoft SIDEWINDER X4 Keyboard - Retail

Pros: -Red back lighting -Macro keys -Box looked cool -Keys are smooth

Cons: -The glossy black part gets scratched easily -The cord is about 2 inches shorter than I would have liked

Overall Review: Great keyboard. My hands must be large, because the hand rest only touches half of my palm.

XIGMATEK Dark Knight II SD1283 Night Hawk Edition CPU Cooler with Stealth Aerospace Industry Thermal conductive ceramic coating LGA1150 Haswell Compatible

Pros: -Quiet (Compared to stock) -Effective, around 43 degrees running Prime 95 (FX 6300 stock) -The black matches my case

Cons: -Easy to bend the fins while putting the fan on -The fan is 1/8th of an inch too large so it hits my ram (G.skill Ripjaws X)

Overall Review: Good heat sink, wish the fan did not have while LED's, as everything else in my case has red LED's.
