Great Speakers

Genius SW-5.1 1000 25 watts 5.1CH Surround System
Genius SW-5.1 1000 25 watts 5.1CH Surround System

Pros: I use them for my computer mostly for gaming, can't go wrong here the sound is surperb and when watching DVD's its like sitting in a theater with everything cranked up. Bass is really loud and I find I often have to turn it down, or face the wrath of the others in the house.

Cons: Some static, I had a problem with interference when I first got them but that was on my end.

Great deal, works perfectly

Pros: The bios is easy to navigate and recognized my mouse instantly. Simply pressed the easy overclock buttonafter starting and it OC'd my i5-2500k to 4.2Ghz Good layout. Great price for what you get. First time I had a motherboard work right out of the box with no fiddling, so I'm quite glad about that.

Cons: None for me.

Overall Review: I currently just have a stock cooler (blasphemy I know) which works fine, am looking into aftermarkets. But as stated below you need to be wary about how large it is as it will interfere with the RAM slots, I wanted to get it put together before I went and bought one so I could visually see the size. ->| |<- Is the distance my stock cooler is away from the RAM itself.

Wonderful

Pros: Picked them up for $119.99 when they were on sale, they work perfectly, although I'm not sure I'll ever effectively use the entirety of the space. They scored higher than anything else on the Windows Experience Index.

Cons: None.

Perfect

Pros: Nice fans, pushes a good amount of air through the case, I bought 2x 120mm and 2x 80mm to power my green machine. Be wary of where they are installed, if my case were on my right I'd be bathing in bright green light all day. They give off a good glow and would be a tad distracting were they in direct sight.

Cons: The location of the fans in my case made life overly difficult.

Great Power Supply

Cons: None so far.

Pros: Works like a charm, lightscribe is good although I've yet to try it.

Cons: None

Overall Review: Make sure you have updated drivers for your motherboards... otherwise you'll run into the same problem that I did, computer gets past POST screen and restarts. Other then that little setback its definately worth the price.
