gtx 550ti3/31/2012 11:14:29 AM

Pros: I replaced my very much aging 9800gt with this card and man am i ever glad i did. It handles everything i throw at it and then some. bf3 at max res on high, wow on max, sc2 on max, and still holding 50+ fps on all of those games. I don't know why people hate on it so much, this card has done only wonders for me.

Cons: The fan is the loudest thing in my case, although i used the nvidia software to turn it up to 70% (it doesnt go any faster after that for some reason, haha) becuase it runs a little bit hot. Nothing too bad though, ive only got it to hit 70c in pretty much a torture test for a very extended amount of time.

Overall Review: I guess EVGA just doesn't like sending out the included adapter, i never got one and about every person who bought a card didn't either so oh well. Don't let all the nerds fool you, this card is an absolutely amazing card.

What fan? I don't hear a fan.3/31/2012 11:07:48 AM

Pros: It might as well not exist, no matter what I can not hear this thing, yet it moves as much air as my 200mm fans. I bought two and put them in push pull and it's just almost unfair. I can never ever go back to another 120mm fan. And a 5 year warranty? Yes please.

Cons: A little pricey, but oh well. They should charge more for these imo.

Overall Review: People complain about the odd color scheme but I think it's great. It honestly looks really good, and stands out in your case, almost like a badge.

amd phenom 2 deneb3/31/2012 11:02:28 AM

Pros: Unstoppable, best cpu i've ever owned. Such an amazing cpu is budget priced? Frack yeah. Boosted my performance an incredible amount. No problems at all, even the stock cpu fan kept this thing very cool. I went from a dual core to this and have never looked back. Handles crazy multi tastking, and any game or problem i throw at it.

Cons: The stock fan is a little loud, oh well, haha.

Overall Review: Sad to see these deactivated but i'm glad i got one while they were around. Although the FX series are great.

asrock 970 extreme3 am3+3/31/2012 10:55:06 AM

Pros: My old mobo shorted on me one day, and this was the one i decided on. Best decision i've made in a good amount of time. UEFI bios is great, makes everything really easy. Lot's of fan connectors, the xfast ram actually did give me a good performance boost. No problems at all, no blue screens, no random power offs, nothing.

Cons: Can't think of any.

seasonic 620w3/31/2012 10:49:25 AM

Pros: Wonderful PSU, 620 watts is more then enough for me. Modular is just amazing, i only have two plugged in to it apart from the 24pin/8pin and it cleaned up my case an unbelievable amount. The fan is quiet and it doesn't run hot at all. All the cables are sleeved great, lots of connector to use and even a carrying case. Seasonic has done wonders.

Cons: Nope!

xornet mouse3/31/2012 10:45:14 AM

Pros: Great mouse, awesome claw grip. The side buttons are easy to use and feel solid to push. The mouse clicks are just gold, no problems at all. The DPI buttons are very handy for switching between games or programs and I have yet to push any of them on accident.

Cons: A little light but you get used to it.

kensington mouse pad3/31/2012 10:40:21 AM

Pros: It does what any mouse pad should, great material, really made my laser mouse shine through. Cheap, and a good size.

Cons: I see people saying stuff about the smell, but i only noticed it the first couple of days then it just sort of disappeared or maybe I got used to it.

storm sniper3/31/2012 10:36:47 AM

Pros: Everything about this case is great. Fan controller which not only controls fan speed but LED on/off switch, lots of space for cable management, tool less drive bays. Comes with HUGE fans that are very quiet and move a ton of air. The LEDs arent very bright (which is good if you're like me and don't like overly bright things) This case just feels great too, very solid construction, no flimsy plastic really. Also, some people mention the PCI bracket holders break or are flimsy but i've had no problems with them so far. And this thing is MASSIVE, make sure your PSU can reach your 4 or 8 pin, i had to buy an extension kit.

Cons: The power on led is like looking into the sun, it lights up my whole room but that was an easy fix. As mention this thing is gigantic, so make sure you have enough room. I have to get a bigger desk now :C

atx cable extension kit3/31/2012 10:09:44 AM

Pros: Everything, saved my life on my 8 pin connector. My 24 pin made it easily through the back of my case, but my 8 pin couldnt make it to the top through the back. Cheap, and very effective.

Cons: Didn't have to use the 24 pin extender, but who knows, maybe i'll have to soon and i'll be glad i bought this. Also, the cables are a little stiff but nothing too bad.

dvi-hdmi adapter3/31/2012 10:06:53 AM

Pros: AWESOME! I can finally hdmi from my video card (which didnt come with the mini hdmi to hdmi adapter, thanks evga.) Works as intended.

Cons: From these other reviews, it sounds like they sometimes send the wrong product, glad I got the correct one. Kind of a roulette, haha.

xigmatek 1203/31/2012 10:05:10 AM

Pros: Very quiet, good rpm, moves a great amount of air. The LED isn't very bright, its really subtle and oddly shaped but I enjoy that look.

Cons: A little pricey, but still nothing bad for a solid fan

h603/31/2012 10:03:15 AM

Pros: Awesome, keeps my phenom II quad core amazinly cool. I have it oc'd to 3.8 and even under full load its only hitting 60-62c. Idle i'm at about 32-34c. I did replace the stock corsair fan with two noctua's as well. Looks pretty awesome too :3

Cons: The installation was a little rough with the stiff tubes, but not too bad. I had my girlfriend help me hold the radiator while i put the block on, etc. Also the installation manual is vague at best, but it was easy enough to figure out, no eggs off for that.

ozone attack3/31/2012 9:57:34 AM

Pros: Absolutely amazing! I was replacing my aging table mic I had bought for a few dollars at target (roflroflroflol) And never could I have thought a headset would be so awesome. The sound quality is great, they haven't stopped working at any point. (And i've dropped them a few times :x) Mic cable is great, I could open my window, turn on my lamp and not have to worry about pulling them to the breaking point. Mic picks up my voice really well in skype, in vent but not all the random ambient sounds around me. Unbeatable pricing!!

Cons: None at all

sidewinder keyboard3/31/2012 9:53:00 AM

Pros: Great keyboard, the backlight control is great, all of the options work wonderfully. Media keys are in good spots as well, the macro keys are easy to push and change modes. It's quieter then my other non-mechanical keyboard, and has a good feel to it. I've had this keyboard for only a little over a week and plan on sticking with it for as long as i can.

Cons: I can't say the macro software is a con, just a little difficult to use and understand. Also i've never had a wrist rest on a keyboard, I'm not sure how I feel about it yet.
