Pros: This is a pretty solid psu, i came from a Coolermast 460w, and this is so much more efficient. At first i kind of laughed at the handle, but its actually sturdy, I use it sometimes with my Air 540. The modular cables really cleaned up my build. Also a 10 year freaking warranty!
Cons: I think i got a bad sku or something, the fan is the loudest part of my rig, it is kind of annoying, and im kind of disappointing.
Pros: This card is a beast, I bought this card specifically for BF4. Been playing it at high settings 60 fps rarely any dips. Great overclocker, with the OC button pressed, i still can push it 1240/1550 w/o any voltage tweaks. Stays nice and cool, under 60C, and looks great in my case.
Overall Review: 3570k 4.6 ghz
2x4 GB 1866
OCZ Vertex 2 x 2 Raid 0
Pros: It looked nice, It overclocked decently, and OC gene works awesomely, I never want to go back to the old school bios UEFI is very easy to use.
Cons: The PCI-E slots died, after a few months of having this board my video card was being detected, device manager or the bios. I tried many different video cards that worked in other rigs, in all lanes.
Overall Review: It was a good board, I put 1 egg because it was military class and expected it to last more that 1 year.
Pros: Solid Closed loop, which was expected from Corsair. Very nice temps, 3570k 4.3 @ 1.2v idle 22c - load 38c.
Cons: After switching between motherboards apparently the Blue LED died. On boot it makes a grinding noise, both things not worth docking eggs
Pros: Runs great, Overclocked at 1866 with stock voltages. Scored 7.9 on windows rater.
Cons: Right out of the box my MSI GD65 was running it at 1333
Pros: Coming from a Phenom 965 this cpu almost double my performance in my games. good temps, 24 idle 45c load in games. OC'd 4.3 @ 1.2v
Cons: I think I lost the "Silicone lottery" mine overclocks really bad, it takes 1.33v to get stable to 4.4, than at 4.5 its like 1.35v
Pros: This PSU is awesome, i have had it for 2 years, 1 year no overclocking, and 1 year w/ it. My Phenom ii x4 965 BE is OC'd to 4.2 ghz 1.46 volts and my gtx 560 975/2150 at 101 2 mV
Cons: Its not a EVGA Supernova 1500w
Pros: This is a very good board for a low budget, the bios is really easy to use. AXTU Overclocking program works great. I have it paired it with Phenomx4 ii 965 BE and overclocking it to 4.2ghz.
Cons: none that I can think of
Overall Review: CPU - AMD Phenom x4 ii 965 BE
Graphics - GTX 560 twinfrozr 2
Ram - Team 2 x 4gb
PSU - Cooler Master Elite 460watt( I know it's low, but its been working for 2 years Overclocking)
