Crucial Ballistix 2GB (2 x 1GB) DDR2 1066 (PC2 8500) Dual Channel Kit Desktop Memory Model BL2KIT12864AA1065

Pros: I am running this ram with an EVGA 680i and a e6420 (3.6ghz). Anyway I am running the ram at 1200mhz 5-5-5-11 vDimm 2.35. I have benched it at 1300mhz vDimm 2.4. This is hands down the best DDR2 I have ever run.

Cons: Are you kidding me...what cons :)

Pros: it looks cool

Cons: Performance was mariginal at best. Its not that this board is horrible its just not a good overclocker. Please save your money and buy a 680i mobo this board is just a disappointment for the amount of money that it costs.

Roccat Did it again!

ROCCAT Ryos MK Glow USB Mechanical Gaming Keyboard

Pros: The cherry MX black switches are great so that accidental key presses can be avoided. The thumbster keys come in handy all the time with Battle Field games. Roccat talk works great and was easy to set up. The easy shift allows for two layers of key functions which is amazing. Having an easy shift there instead of caps which it is very annoying when you are typing and you hit caps on accident. The giant palm rest is very nice my hands rarely get tired now of standing up whilst typing papers. Also being able to disable windows in the driver is nice but if only it could be re-enabled with the easy shift The led's are pretty at low settings at night but sometimes... con below Having the function keys assigned with the keys up top is very nice and now I don't have to rant about how it doesn't have media controls just joking.

Cons: Well there's only one con and it's that when you turn the LED's to their full power at night and look at the monitor out of the corner of your eyes it appears to be blinking on and off not really a con but hey it is really weird for me.

Overall Review: If you are reading this then just stop now and buy it you will not regret it ever.

Quite the Cooler

Cooler Master Hyper 212 Plus - CPU Cooler with 4 Direct Contact Heatpipes

Pros: Keeps my CPU around 40 c not under load and 60c under heavy load. Atheistically it looks great just like it is. The fan is a little loud but powerful.

Cons: None that can be issued as of now.

Overall Review: I would highly recommend this to someone on a budget build or someone who wants performance.

Pros: This video card doesn't take up the "ENTIRE" case. Provides high quality games with high FPS I can run absolutely any game with no flaw. The fan is very quiet. The plastic cover looks stunning especially with the blue fan!

Cons: None that I can think of.

Overall Review: I wold recommend this card time and time again to anyone who is doing a budget build.

Quite the OverClocker

GIGABYTE GA-Z77X-UD3H LGA 1155 Intel Z77 HDMI SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 ATX Intel Motherboard

Pros: This board has excellent bios and are very easy to navigate and change. It works great with my I5-2500k and OC'd to 4.5 GHZ on air. The layout of this board works great with my case: HAF 922

Cons: This is just nit picking but... the I/O shield was a little weird and didn't seem to fit correctly with my case but I made do.

Overall Review: I would definitely recommend this board to anyone who is doing a budget build!
