Corsair Graphite Series 600T Arctic White Steel / Plastic ATX Mid Tower Computer Case
Corsair Graphite Series 600T Arctic White Steel / Plastic ATX Mid Tower Computer Case

Pros: nice looking, spacious, intelligent cable management, keeps everything cool

Cons: wish it had a bigger fan in the back

Overall Review: if you purchase this tower, i recommend the corsair h100 cpu cooler to go with it, the case was pretty much made for it, perfect fit and easy installation, keeps my cpu below 30 degrees at full load

Most Critical Review

not so great

EVGA X79 SLI 132-SE-E775-KR LGA 2011 Intel X79 SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 ATX Intel Motherboard
EVGA X79 SLI 132-SE-E775-KR LGA 2011 Intel X79 SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 ATX Intel Motherboard

Pros: looks nice, no ugly LED's littering the board

Cons: no front side usb3 pinouts board arrived DOA with bad bios chip, it took a week for it to arrive via snail mail, you'd figure with the amount of money we are paying for a product that is known to still have bugs, they could next day air it, or maybe just pack an extra bios chip with the new boards they produce... took a week for me to be able to use it, and now on inital start up, it says no hard drives are detected on my post screen, then loads normally... not something I want to look at on a brand new computer, but I dont feel like dealing with tech support again, and then having to RMA and risk possibly getting another bad bios chipped board...

Overall Review: I love EVGA, I stood behind them on most of their products for YEARS, but I'm pretty disappointed with this one, I'm having second thoughts about buying evga gpus now...

they put the lotion on the skin

EVGA GeForce GTX 550 Ti (Fermi) 2GB GDDR5 PCI Express 2.0 x16 SLI Support Video Card 02G-P3-1559-KR

Pros: fairly decent price, they look good in my case, i have 2 in SLI put windows score to 7.0 maxed out setting on D3 holding steady with no issues

Cons: I purchased 2 during the evga anniversary doodad, expecting to get 30 bucks back on each, but after purchasing, i found out that evga will only give one rebate per household yadda yadda yadda... If i had known this prior, I probably would have just bought one bigger nastier card at the same price as 2 of these lil guys

works as expected

Pros: works as intended, fast data transfer to the ubee router/modem that brighthouse gives out...

Cons: none so far

Overall Review: fair price for an easy to install and fast data transfer adapter

it does what its told...

Pros: decent amount of storage, fair price

Cons: its not a 6gbs drive

Overall Review: I'm a die hard WD user, I've tried using a seagate external before, it crashed 3 months after purchase and lost a lot of vital data... never again
