Nice Motherboard

ASUS M3A78-T AM2+/AM2 AMD 790GX HDMI ATX AMD Motherboard
ASUS M3A78-T AM2+/AM2 AMD 790GX HDMI ATX AMD Motherboard

Pros: Very nice motherboard... I got it to aid in overclocking for the new 790 chipset.... Works... Running Phenon 9950 125 watt @ 3.0 Gig on Stock air Easy to overclock and very stable

Cons: None

Overall Review: Nice performance for the buck

Phenom

AMD Phenom 9850 Black Edition - Phenom X4 Quad-Core 2.5 GHz Socket AM2+ 125W Processor - HD985ZXAGHBOX
AMD Phenom 9850 Black Edition - Phenom X4 Quad-Core 2.5 GHz Socket AM2+ 125W Processor - HD985ZXAGHBOX

Pros: Runs solid @ 215 on bus speed and 13.5 on the clock for 2.9 Gig stable with factory fan. Gets a little hot under load and I will be experimenting with lowering voltage to see if I can still run stable and a little cooler.

Cons: Looks like you have to have water cooling to reach 3.0 or higher with Barcelona. But hey, a very good CPU for the buck, and we just might keep AMD around along enough to keep Intel honest.

Overall Review: I have only seen the four CPU's hit about 26% load under normal multitasking. Running Itunes for music while I have 4 internet sites open under two 22inch monitors running software and such all at the same time.

Wow

Pros: Beautifull Power supply. Absolutely high quality. I was impressed with the outer appearance, but really impressed by the design and how quiet it all is. Plenty of connections for SLI

Cons: None so far

Heavy and Large Case

XCLIO A380BK Fully Black SECC 1.0mm thickness ATX Full Tower Computer Case
XCLIO A380BK Fully Black SECC 1.0mm thickness ATX Full Tower Computer Case

Pros: Very nice airflow. Big but very quiet fans. You will not hear this case at all. Just need the room for a full tower case plus a bit more due to large fan infront of case.

Cons: A little heavy. Not all aluminum, so it is heavier than an all aluminum case.

Nice
