Great

OCZ Petrol 2.5" 128GB SATA III MLC Internal Solid State Drive (SSD) PTL1-25SAT3-128G
OCZ Petrol 2.5" 128GB SATA III MLC Internal Solid State Drive (SSD) PTL1-25SAT3-128G

Pros: Economical SSD. No failures yet, though based on the reviews, I am being cautious. Great read/write speeds, even on a SATAII laptop. There is clearly a bottleneck because of my laptop's SATAII limitation , but this isn't that fault of the drive. Comes with 3 year manufacturer warranty if it fails.

Cons: Not the fastest SSD out there, but one of the most reasonably-priced.

Overall Review: Upgraded immediately to the 3.12 firmware. This will erase the drive, so do it before install. Found a better deal and a rebate through a local retailer.

very reliable, but broken fan

Antec HCG M Series HCG-620M 620W ATX12V / EPS12V SLI Ready CrossFire Ready 80 PLUS BRONZE Certified Modular Active PFC Power Supply - Intel Haswell Fully Compatible
Antec HCG M Series HCG-620M 620W ATX12V / EPS12V SLI Ready CrossFire Ready 80 PLUS BRONZE Certified Modular Active PFC Power Supply - Intel Haswell Fully Compatible

Pros: Works perfectly, zero problems performance-wise. Great stiff cables.

Cons: The 135mm fan started to make a clicking noise after a few months, increasingly worse. Now it's constant... probably a messed up bearing. I'm sure it's replaceable by warranty, but I already cracked it open to find the noise and voided the warranty.

Excellent open air case

Pros: Tons of customization options, solid construction, wall-mount ready, cable management built into frame. Makes for a very clean look if you're willing to put in the effort.

Cons: Takes a little more work then your standard case, but well worth it. It would be nice if the metal rods came in a shorter length - I found the glass panel comes out further than necessary. The pictures don't show it very well, but the feet of the case leave a considerable gap between the back of the case and where it would touch a wall. It looks much better wall-mounted IMO.

Overall Review: I have this case wall-mounted under a desk with water cooling installed. It's a huge frame that fits a full ATX board just fine, even though it's just the P3 model. Easily fits a 360mm radiator.

Very happy so far

Pros: Highly efficient cooling compared to standard air cooling. This kit has everything you need to start. and is very affordable! Install was straightforward and simple compared to a completely custom water cooling build. Instructions were very easy to follow, as well.

Cons: Only works with Nvidia reference build GPUs.
