Amazing speeds!

Corsair Performance 3 Series 2.5" 64GB SATA III MLC Internal Solid State Drive (SSD) CSSD-P364GB2-BRKT

Pros: Boots Windows in only a few seconds, compared to the slower boot HDDs offer. Loads any installed apps without issues.

Cons: Nothing!

Overall Review: Took a while to mount this in my case (Antec 1200 V3), but that's because I tried to use the built-in SSD mount initially. After placing in the HDD bay with the included bracket, everything went smoothly.

Excellent RAM

G.SKILL Ripjaws X Series 8GB (2 x 4GB) DDR3 1600 (PC3 12800) Desktop Memory Model F3-12800CL9D-8GBXL

Pros: The perfect combination with a Sandy Bridge setup. Got it for $30 too!

Cons: Might give you some trouble installing if you have an aftermarket cooler.

Great RAM for the price

Pros: Got this in a combo with other parts, works perfectly with them.

Cons: It took a lot of force to get the RAM to fit on the mobo. Eventually got it to sit properly.

Great budget CPU

Cons: None.

Pros: Installed Windows fine, works well.

Cons: None.

Overall Review: Not as fast as others, but I only got it for a budget build so it isn't an issue.

Good budget mobo

Pros: Easy to install CPU, fans, and wiring.

Cons: No proper manual, only a small pamphlet with a diagram.

Overall Review: Getting the RAM in was a bit difficult. It required much more force than other motherboards I've installed.
