Great Headphones!

Sennheiser - Professional DJ styled - Closed Dynamic Bass Headphones (HD 202)
Sennheiser - Professional DJ styled - Closed Dynamic Bass Headphones (HD 202)

Pros: Great sound quality Great build quality Decent cord length Cord seems durable. The included 3.5mm to 6.3mm connector seems to be built well.(look in other thoughts) Comfortable (look in cons) 2 Year Guarantee from Sennheiser.

Cons: Cords coming from both headphones. I knew before i purchased. But i wish Sennheiser would think of a way to have just one cord. Somewhat small headphone pad. It either needs to be a little wider or the pads need to be a little thicker. They are still comfortable, But with that minor adjustment they would be perfect. (Only reason i marked a egg down.)

Overall Review: I bought these as travel headphones. I have Sennheiser PC350s for my headphones at home, They are great, So i figured i would try the HD202's, And I'm glad i did, They were a great investment. Under the product tour, It has a listing for "Screw-on Jack Adapter" The actual adapter is not "screw-on". It does stay on very well, Just correcting it that it is not a screw on, The 3.5mm plug on the headphones does not have threads for a screw-on either. I would highly recommend Sennheisers to anyone for what ever type they are looking for. These are great headphones, they sound better then a pair of $100 of another brand i have used. Also Sennheiser has great customer service. Thank you Newegg for supplying us with another high quality product!

An amazing GPU

GIGABYTE GeForce GTX 570 (Fermi) 1280MB GDDR5 PCI Express 2.0 x16 SLI Support Video Card GV-N570OC-13I Rev2.0
GIGABYTE GeForce GTX 570 (Fermi) 1280MB GDDR5 PCI Express 2.0 x16 SLI Support Video Card GV-N570OC-13I Rev2.0

Pros: This video card is all you need. Runs every game on max with over 100 FPS on everything I've played. Granted I only play at 1680x1050. But I've run everything at AA 16x. Games I've tried: Team Fortress 2, Fallout: New Vegas (With 3gb of high res textures added), APB: Reloaded, Champions Online, Fallen Earth, Company of Heroes (All on Ultra settings), Brink, Crysis 2, Dirt 3 and Vindictus. With no issues on any of them. Temperatures are good, under load its about 44C and idle around 34C. Extremely quiet, Under load my fans only go to about 50% power. Using MSI After Burner to turn my fans to 100% just to see how loud it was, It did get pretty loud. But really there is no point to have the fans at that speed. As stated before, automatic settings run at 50% power when under load and temperature are 44C. And you can hardly hear it. When idle it is completely silent.

Cons: Ha! Like there is any.

Where to begin

CORSAIR Professional Series Gold AX850 (CMPSU-850AX) 850 W ATX12V v2.31 / EPS12V v2.92 80 PLUS GOLD Certified Full Modular Active PFC Power Supply
CORSAIR Professional Series Gold AX850 (CMPSU-850AX) 850 W ATX12V v2.31 / EPS12V v2.92 80 PLUS GOLD Certified Full Modular Active PFC Power Supply

Pros: I don't even know where to begin about how awesome this power supply is. Its built like a tank. Very nice little bag that contains all the cords. Very good sleeve job on the cables. Power ratings are constantly very good. At most a .5% deviation from the intended voltage. Which compared to my last power supply is a high improvement. Extremely quiet.

Cons: I have the FT02 case from Silverstone. And to mount this power supply to utilize the rear power supply vent (The case is mounted 90 degrees so the top of the case is what is normally the back, Power supply is normally on the bottom of high end cases, FT02 is on the top back.) Anyhow, I had to unscrew the fan guard because it kind of is raised a little. No worries though, My vent guards the fan. Not really a con of the product, Just an issue if you have a bottom mounted fan that doesn't have room for a raised fan guard.

SanDisk 16GB microSDHC Flash Card Model SDSDQM-016G-B35N
SanDisk 16GB microSDHC Flash Card Model SDSDQM-016G-B35N

Pros: This is a class 4 product. Unlike the stated Class 2 in the description. Read and Write are MUCH faster than my previous Class 2 Micro SDHC. And interestingly enough, Faster than my other Class 4 product from another brand. For the price, This product is awesome.

Cons: None that I can find.

Perfect.

CORSAIR Hydro Series H60 (CWCH60) High Performance Liquid CPU Cooler
CORSAIR Hydro Series H60 (CWCH60) High Performance Liquid CPU Cooler

Pros: This product is wonderful. What does a heat sink need to have a high rating? Build quality: I've never seen a CPU heat sink built as well as this thing. Its even well packaged. I don't feel like this is going to fall apart compared to other closed circuit water systems I've seen. Ease of use: Lots of directions so anyone can install it High cooling efficiency: My temperatures went from 53 using a HUGE copper heat sink to 37 under load. I thought my old heat sink was the "best" air cooler on the market according to reviews. Well, It didn't even compete with this. Well designed: Based on the temperatures my computer is reading with this. The thermal dynamics are excellent. Being easy to put on and extremely quiet are just icing on the cake. Good value: The bottom line is. Is for the price you COULD go with a very nice air cooling heat sink. But with the temperatures this can achieve. Just spend the extra money and get this. It is a very effective heat sink for the price.

Cons: None that I've found.

It is simple the best.

ARCTIC MX-4 Thermal Paste, Carbon Based High Performance Thermal Compound for All Coolers, Thermal Interface Material, 4 Grams
ARCTIC MX-4 Thermal Paste, Carbon Based High Performance Thermal Compound for All Coolers, Thermal Interface Material, 4 Grams

Pros: This stuff is simply incredible. Easily the best thermal compound on the market. It has the best cooling rating, with no cure time. Can't get any better then that. You can check reviews, Nothing beats it. What most reviews don't tell you is how easy it is to apply compared to the older MX-2 or MX-3. MX-4 spreads cleaner and smoother than the predecessors. I used to be an avid fan of Arctic Silver 5, But wait about a year and try cleaning it off the chip. Its all dry and crusty. I recently cleaned a build from a year ago and had to replace the heatsink. The MX-2 was still wet. Cleaned off with one wipe. End of the story. If you need thermal paste. This one is cheaper than some of the other high end thermal pastes. And performs better, Instantly. No waiting for it to cure to obtain maximum efficiency.

Cons: None.
