Most Favorable Review
Intel Core 2 Quad Q8300 - Core 2 Quad Yorkfield Quad-Core 2.5 GHz LGA 775 95W Desktop Processor - BX80580Q8300
Intel Core 2 Quad Q8300 - Core 2 Quad Yorkfield Quad-Core 2.5 GHz LGA 775 95W Desktop Processor - BX80580Q8300

Pros: Awesome processor! Overclocks better than most people give it credit for...VERY stable. 2.5GHz stock, got it to 3GHz without even trying! Not a single BSOD...

Cons: Doesn't have virtualization support, but no biggie...its a desktop CPU, going into a desktop PC...duh! :-)

Thermaltake SpinQ Performance Series cooler with ultra-lightweight aluminum and six heatpipes CL-P0466 CPU Cooler
Thermaltake SpinQ Performance Series cooler with ultra-lightweight aluminum and six heatpipes CL-P0466 CPU Cooler

Pros: Pretty design, keeps everything nice and cool...

Cons: Ok...there are a couple things... 1) PLEASE stop sharpening the fins! Cut my hand up pretty bad.. 2) Plastic push-clips to attach to motherboard...doesn't give me a warm-fuzzy. It works, but I'm worried that it might "un-snap" from the board...

Very Nice!

Pros: -Very small form factor -High speed

Cons: -None that I have found

Overall Review: Great price for a very nice GigE unmanaged switch. I connected this to my Cat3560 and it linked right up at 1000M...tested it for an hour with no dropped packets...

Acer X233Hbid Black 23" 5ms HDMI Full 1080P Widescreen LCD Monitor 300 cd/m2 40000:1 (ACM)

Pros: This monitor is going to take some getting used to (in a good way)! I guess I have been so used to my old Dell 19" UltraSharp 1902 that looking at what is possible now seem a bit odd... Other reviews here smack on the monitor stand...sorry, but I don't see what you see - mine seems perfectly fine, perfectly stable. Other fine points: - BRIGHT! - Fairly lightweight (compared to my old Dell) - Well designed

Cons: The only thing I can complain about is that it does seem to take a lot of button presses to get around the menu...but that is acceptable since this isn't something that needs to be touched very often in most cases.

Pros: Fairly overclockable for dummies...

Cons: Won't overclock very far, but considering its a good price for some pretty fast RAM out-of-the-box, I'll call it even...
