Most Favorable Review
ASRock 770 EXTREME3 AM3 AMD 770 SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 ATX AMD Motherboard
ASRock 770 EXTREME3 AM3 AMD 770 SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 ATX AMD Motherboard

Pros: Great Motherboard! Works great!

Cons: I was trying to switch a cord from the sata3 plug on the motherboard and the sata3 female on the motherboard came off with the cord. :/ be careful with the cords and plugs.

Overall Review: This is a really great motherboard and couldn't be happier with it. This was my first build and I guess I need to be more careful next time and not just pull wires out like I did. :(

Most Critical Review

DIED AFTER 9 MONTHS!

Rosewill RV2-700 700 W ATX12V v2.3 / EPS12V SLI Ready Power Supply
Rosewill RV2-700 700 W ATX12V v2.3 / EPS12V SLI Ready Power Supply

Pros: Great PSU for the price of a shell shocker deal of $45. Very quiet!

Cons: PSU dies after about 15 minutes of being turned on. Too bad it died after 9 months. Now I have to send it back and get a replacement.

Overall Review: Strongly suggest you pay the money for a brand such as Corsair, Antec, etc. They will last you much longer. PAY ATTENTION TO REVIEWS! Seems like a lot of people were having the same issue as well.

Great Case

Rosewill FBM-02 - Dual-Fan Micro ATX Mini Tower Computer Case
Rosewill FBM-02 - Dual-Fan Micro ATX Mini Tower Computer Case

Pros: Very cheap, sturdy for it's price, and looks very nice.

Cons: The cords running from the front panel need to be about an inch longer. They still worked, but it seemed like there was a little more tension on the cord when plugged in the MoBo than I would have liked.

Overall Review: Case looks very nice in person, the front "brushed metal" parts are actually brushed plastic. It's convincing until you touch it.

Works great

Antec Basiq BP350 350W ATX12V v2.01 Power Supply - Intel Haswell Fully Compatible
Antec Basiq BP350 350W ATX12V v2.01 Power Supply - Intel Haswell Fully Compatible

Pros: Cheap, Reliable

Cons: Cords are just long enough for the PC I was building. This could be a problem in other cases/builds.

Overall Review: I've had 1 bad Antec Basiq out of the 4 that I've purchased over time. They seem to hold up pretty well. But it has a very, very faint whine when the PC is turned off. You can only hear it if the room is silent though.

Great Little MoBo

Pros: Great Speeds, Smooth, Easy installation

Cons: None

Overall Review: Bought this for a budget home business build. I was kinda worried about it not being powerful enough for multiple programs. It has by-far, exceeded my expectations.
