Most Favorable Review

Good GPU water cooler/Hard to install

ARCTIC Accelero Hybrid 7970 Extreme VGA Cooler - AMD Radeon, Liquid/Air Combo Utimate Cooling
ARCTIC Accelero Hybrid 7970 Extreme VGA Cooler - AMD Radeon, Liquid/Air Combo Utimate Cooling

Pros: cools the GPU greatly keeps it at 52 under full load was 75 before over clocked the card i had was a 7970 from Sapphire

Cons: hard to install takes a good hour if not more..... spliced the cooler into the radiator i already had installed in my computer (voids warranty) but all is good now

Overall Review: finally have a water cooled GPU, RAM, CPU, MB..... ready for some heavy overclocking

Most Critical Review

says 8gb on USB only 600MB in windows

Patriot Swing 8GB USB 2.0 Flash Drive Model PSF8GSBUSB
Patriot Swing 8GB USB 2.0 Flash Drive Model PSF8GSBUSB

Pros: none

Cons: very sluggish... i paid 12 bucks for an 8gb USB and i get a usb marked 8GB but only 600MB of space on drive

Overall Review: first time i have bought patriot memory and will be the last

Exceptional Motherboard as expected from Asus

ASUS TUF SABERTOOTH Z170 MARK 1 LGA 1151 Intel Z170 HDMI SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.1 USB 3.0 ATX Intel Motherboard
ASUS TUF SABERTOOTH Z170 MARK 1 LGA 1151 Intel Z170 HDMI SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.1 USB 3.0 ATX Intel Motherboard

Pros: I build computers as a hobby and have used multiple asus Sabertooth and Gryphon motherboards. They have all worked flawlessly, never a DOA The Ram supported is Higher than 2400 for anyone that wants to know. It works fine with 3200MHZ (XMP) ddr 4 8GB sticks.

Cons: Some may find the Small fans an annoyance due to claimed dust build up however i have not experienced this myself (i think they installed the fan backwards for whoever has that problem)

Overall Review: A bit on the expensive side, however the 5-year warranty is a big bonus for many corperations

WAY too expensive

Tuniq TX-4 Extreme Performance and Exceptional Reliability Thermal Compound
Tuniq TX-4 Extreme Performance and Exceptional Reliability Thermal Compound

Pros: kinda obvious... it keeps the cpu from burning

Cons: if you do a quick google search for the best thermal paste this paste falls behind even Mayo, yes MAYO.. the stuff you put on your bread will beat this paste thermal wise

Overall Review: dont buy it, get arctic silver 5 a much, much better thermal paste

JUNK

StarTech.com IDE2SAT25 40 Pin Female IDE to SATA Adapter Converter - Connect a SATA device to an IDE controller - IDE to SATA Converter

Pros: NONE

Cons: its designed all wrong.... it fits onto the drive nice. however if you put it in a hard drive cage it doesn't fit.... u cant get the cables onto the port nore fit the thing through the cage because it would hit the side. also when the drive is fully in place u cant put it on either... it would still hit the side of the drive cage on a Thor V2 case. the converter itself also doesn't respond in windows. no drive shows up nor in bios overall its just a light paper wheight

Overall Review: DONT BUY IT

WD Caviar Black WD1002FAEX 1TB 7200 RPM 64MB Cache SATA 6.0Gb/s 3.5" Internal Hard Drive Bare Drive

Pros: good drive for about a year...

Cons: well i have had it for about a year now and its starting to fail.... 1. Starting to take ages to spin up.... when my computer starts up it gives me a no Media device found message for about 10 seconds then starts to boot. 2. Has started to lag here and there especially when transfering any file it will almost freeze anything else you want to do wile you transfer data... 3. backed up all my data yesturday and now the drive hardly wants to even get recognized by the mobo....

Overall Review: Just to let everyone know this is a VERY loud HDD if your computer is writing data to it YOU will know it ;)
