Read everything, you haters

PC Power & Cooling ModXStream Pro Series 700 Watt 80+ Semi-Modular Active PFC Performance Grade ATX PC Power Supply (OCZ700MXSP)
PC Power & Cooling ModXStream Pro Series 700 Watt 80+ Semi-Modular Active PFC Performance Grade ATX PC Power Supply (OCZ700MXSP)

Pros: 700watts Modular 80Plus Certified 3 Years warranty Ok, folks, OCZ powersupplies are just as good as any other brands. Those that complaint about rebates: I have gotten more than 10 rebates from OCZ and I have never failed to receive my rebates because I do my rebates carefully and make sure I do everything correctly and sent them in ON TIME, now I have 100% success with OCZ rebates, why are you complaining because you didn't follow instructions or sent it in late? If you really did everything correctly and didn't get it, you think OCZ is to be blamed? why do you think the rebates are only offered here and not elsewhere? because the merchant is in on this, so you should get the merchant to credit you the rebate amount. Those that complaint about it breaking down: Electronics doesn't last forever, DOA or breaking down over time happens with any brand, that's why merchant is there to replace your DOA and OCZ offer 3 years coverage to cover your replacement if it does break down, I have bought more than 10 power supplies from OCZ and I have only did 1 RMA, Keep in mind that most people who are happy with OCZ powersupply do not come here to post positive reviews, but the people who got broken stuff would come here to complain for sure, so every positive review you see, you should multiple that by 50, then compare with the amount of those negative reviews, then you will see positive reviews overpower the negatives. This is somewhat not related to this product but it relates to OCZ's SSD: If you bought a SF SSD, don't blame OCZ if it's unreliable, SF are well known for bad reliability. If you bought a non SF OCZ drive and somehow it broke, keep in mind that OCZ does not make the nand flash in the drive, they aren't to be blamed for bad quality nand that was supplied by the nand manufacturers like samsung/micron/toshiba, the big boys could be supplying bad nand to the ssd drive manufacturers to make their drive look less desirable, which is illegal and i think they should get sued for that. When my SATA II ocz SSD broke down, it was out of warranty, OCZ still gave me RMA for replacement, and guess what they sent me? Vertex 4 SATA III to replace my old SATA II drive, now that's customer service, not many manufacturers would give you RMA outside warranty period and then replace your product with a much better and higher model that cost more, free of charge.

Cons: None

Most Critical Review

NO 1.02 from Newegg

ASUS P5B-E LGA 775 Intel P965 Express ATX Intel Motherboard
ASUS P5B-E LGA 775 Intel P965 Express ATX Intel Motherboard

Pros: Good board even though it's 1.01, was able to get E6300 to 3.26GHz with 1.36Volt (p5b-e is bugged, you have to use 1.4375 in order to get 1.36 real volt, this happens with every bios and even with the latest beta bios)

Cons: Got 2 from newegg but both are 1.01, so I guess newegg still got alot of 1.01 left and trying to get rid of LOL, difference between 1.01 and 1.02 is that 1.01 is 2.1volt on memory max and 1.02 is 2.2volt on memory max, so you get better overclocking, I reached 466x7 with memory at 932MHz 4-4-4-10, when I get 500x7 , my memory starts to show errors so my memory can't get to 1GHz with only 2.1volts even if i lose my timing to 5-5-5-15. Overall this is a pretty good motherboard for overclocking and has RAID5 built-in which is something I might need in the future, but it does have it's issue, if you have "Execute Disabled Bits" enabled in bios which is a virus protection feature of the processor, you will encounter these problem: slow/lag on your machine and any virtual cdrom won't mount any image or it will freeze your windows and non of the X-Fi soundcards will work (tried both Platinum & Fatal1ty), it will make really loud noise from the speaker and doesn't produce sound, so disable it!

Overall Review: I ran out of space on cons section, so basically to continue what I was saying, if you encounter those problems, just disable "Execute Disabled Bits" feature of your proecessor in bios, but this bring in a new problem for people who has 4GB memory and running 32bit windows, when you have that feature disabled, your windows switch from PAE (Physical Address Extension) to regular so it will only show 3GB memory available when you have 4GB installed. Anyways, I gave it 3 stars because of the issues I've encountered and too me long time to figure it out myself because nobody else posted a fix for those issues and I had to spend hours figuring that out by changing settings in bios.

Please believe the other reviewers about ZERO overclock potential

G.SKILL Trident Z Royal Series 32GB (2 x 16GB) 288-Pin RGB DDR4 SDRAM DDR4 3000 (PC4 24000) Desktop Memory Model F4-3000C16D-32GTRS
G.SKILL Trident Z Royal Series 32GB (2 x 16GB) 288-Pin RGB DDR4 SDRAM DDR4 3000 (PC4 24000) Desktop Memory Model F4-3000C16D-32GTRS

Pros: I just got these today and it does run at rated speed of 3000 CAS16 but I have not done memtest yet. Read Con Update: Originally, I gave it 2star, now I'm changing to 1star. How dare G.Skill reply to my review and tell me the memory can't overclock because I'm on AMD platform? That's a load of bull. Have you seen people give bad reviews to a restaurant on yelp only to have the restaurant employee reply to the complaint with some lame excuse or say the customer is at fault? Well, that's exactly what Gskill is doing. They really need to learn what customer service is about and be honest about them using the lowest tier Hynix memory on these instead of arguing with the customer who point out the truth. If Gskill reply one more time or newegg refuse to post this review, I'll file a BBB complaint against both for false advertisement and fraud.

Cons: Cons: I could not get it to go above 3000MHz no matter what. Even 3066MHz will fail to boot windows. Oh, you are going to put the blame on my motherboard (ASUS X470 Prime Pro) and processor (Ryzen 2700) right? Guess what? My previous RAM that I took out is the Crucial Ballistix RGB with Micron D-die rated at 3000 CAS16 but I was able to OC that to 3200MHz CAS16 or 3400MHz CAS17. Tahiphoon burner can't even identify what die this GSKILL Royal is, can only tell you it's from Hynix, must be the lowest tier of Hynix you can possibly get. This is what happens when you buy ram from a brand who don't even manufacture their own memory.

Overall Review: GSKILL really cut corners on this one. Pretty on the outside but trash on the inside.

Just being honest here

Rosewill NEON M55 - 6000 dpi RGB Backlit Optical Wired Gaming Mouse
Rosewill NEON M55 - 6000 dpi RGB Backlit Optical Wired Gaming Mouse

Pros: It's a decent mouse for daily task It's got a mail in rebate however...

Cons: RGB lighting customization is very limited in the software, and the breathing is very slow even at the fastest setting. There's only 3 DPI settings even though the software offer 6 settings, because the 3 setting on the right side called "DPI dial up" doesn't even work, and if you try to change the color of the 6th setting, it will popup another window after you pressed ok, if you press that ok, the software crash. Basically, this would be a 5star mouse for the price if the software offered more features with RGB lighting and DPI settings and doesn't crash from bugs.

DOA, never worked, solid blue light, can't reset, no wireless

Netis WF2416 Wireless N150 Pocket Size Traveler AP Router Repeater with Wall Plug
Netis WF2416 Wireless N150 Pocket Size Traveler AP Router Repeater with Wall Plug

Pros: NONE, read cons.

Cons: DOA, never worked, solid blue light, can't reset, no wireless, can't configure the device, because it's so cheap, it's not even worth the hassle to return and exchange, waste of time and gas. Don't buy unless you got too much money to waste.

DOA, Very High Fail Rate, Unreliable

OCZ ARC 100 2.5" 240GB SATA III MLC Internal Solid State Drive (SSD) ARC100-25SAT3-240G

Pros: N/A

Cons: The drive was DOA, unreliable and fail rate is high on these, stay with Samsung and Micron.
