Pros: good case, does what its supposed to do.
Cons: the front panel on it seems a little "cheap" but looks cool, just dont try anything too risky with this case.
Overall Review: none
Pros: MY GTX 560 TIIIII superclockeddddd!!!! This thing runs my games super silky.
Rift...MAXXED (Even in the major cities with people everywhere).
Witcher 2...MAXXED (besides UBERsampling, only the best of the best can run that on it).
League of Legends...MAXXED (Prepare to last hit those minions better).
Runs between 75C and 83C when at full load
Buy this card!! You wont be disappointed.
Cons: The driver's are kinda weird on my computer but thats probably just me.
Overall Review: Says GTX 560 Ti OC2 on the top of it so when you invite those ladies over they will be WOW'd.
My only regret with these is not putting them in SLI by not getting an SLI compatible motherboard, I was under the impression that SLI was still at 1.5 speed. It's now at 2.0 people.
Got this mainly to max Diablo 3 when it arrives.
Pros: This motherboard is very good. MSI delivers on their products. It comes with a lot of bonus software and goodies like a click bios and OC Genie!
Cons: For those putting no SLI or crossfire in cons aren't making sense. How can something be a con when you bought it KNOWING that it did not have this function. Please load dictionary.con and type in con please.
Cons: doesnt do my dishes
Pros: running an intel i5 2500k overclocked and a gtx 560 ti super clocked just fine. Power supply works and is modular but not completely modular.
All the people giving bad reviews because it isn't COMPLETELY modular need to uninstall life. Learn to look at the pictures provided
Cons: makes a high pitched noise sometimes.....weird...
Overall Review: not as ugly as people say it is
Cons: process is a little annoying.
Overall Review: games not out yet
Pros: CD drive came free with some parts that i ordered for a new rig. The CD drive works fine, can't really complain about the small things for being free eh?
Cons: Can get loud when installing things from a disc. Whatever, I like noise from my computer unlike most. Let's me know it's ALIVE
Pros: Let me just start out by saying that I was an AMD fanboy for about 5 years, and then i gave the intel i5 a try and now i will never look back at AMD. AMD is so far behind intel ATM, it's not even funny. And tbh, i don't see Bulldozer passing up the Sandy Bridge.
This processor is amazing in every conceivable way people... Is is FAST and DURABLE...allow me to explain...
This processor, after i have Turbo boost enabled and an OCing thing activated on my motherboard, has a speed of 4.2 GHZ... This thing loads windows 7 64 bit almost instantly.
Another note to add... I have been playing Rise of Immortals lately and didn't even know the game had a loading screen until about my 20th match... That's how fast it is. I am ALWAYS the first person to load in as well.
When installing this processor, i rubbed it against the socket a little and even dropped it about a foot in the air on my case accidentally. and it's STILL KICKING!! THIS THING IS DURABLE.
Cons: The instructions don't mention much about the processor. It should mention something about the turbo boost and other things like that but it doesn't. Not a big issue at all though because i believe its the mobo manuals job to do that.
If you don't have proper cooling in your case you might want to consider buying an aftermarket HSF. If you're running processor heavy apps such as Minecraft or Rift, the temps on this can get pretty high. Like i said above though, that's only if you don't have adequate cooling in your case. 1 case fan can make a difference of 15C people.
Overall Review: If you're stuck between this and the i7 just get this. If you actually read up on it the, i5 runs some things faster believe it or not. If it doesn't it is RIGHT behind the i7... Not to mention a lot of programs and games don't even support hyper-threading, which the i7 has and this doesn't.
Get this processor and i promise you will never look back at AMD and you will not regret it.
Pros: This webcam is very nice, and looks very nice as well. The software that comes with it is pretty neat too.
Cons: The surface on which the webcam is supposed to sit on the monitor could maybe get weird for some monitors, but all should be fine though.
Pros: It's an anti-static wrist strap that seems to work. Very comfortable and nothing bad about it really.
Overall Review: I'm a heavier set guy and the wrist still fits fine with plenty of room to go.
Pros: Does what it's supposed to... Kinda
Cons: First off, let me start by saying Cooler Master lost a loyal customer of seven years after this one. The instructions included with this product are VERY AWFUL. A two year old with a crayon could write a better one. I had to look up a video on youtube to install this. If this is your first build, leave this product page and never come back. Luckily, this was not my first build.
Although I could have done the math, Cooler Master should specify that they highly DO NOT recommend mid cases with this product. Not only did i have to uninstall 2 fans on the side of my case (not a huge issue), but i now have 3 sticks of RAM installed instead of 4. If you have any RAM sticks that have any "extra" on the top like G. skill JIGSAWS they will not fit under the heatsink to go in.
Overall Review: Honestly, do yourself a favor. Avoid this product and just max out your case with nice fans like i did. I ordered this product a day after i found out the fan in the front of my case wasn't on. I turned it on and WALAHH idle temps were down 10C and load temps were down 20C... Fans make that much of a difference people.
My idle temps are down a measly 3C from having to uninstall the case fans. Like i said, just get some nice case fans. Cheaper and the installation is simple.
Pros: What more can i say? The keyboard does its job very well.
Cons: It doesn't cook for me.
Pros: This monitor serves its purpose extremely well.
- It's big
- It can be used for games
- The picture is fabulous
- Seems sturdy for the most part
Cons: I could see how people who are really picky wouldn't like this monitor, though.
- The buttons are a little "odd feeling." Nothing too bad
- This monitor doesn't offer an "extreme" amount customization.
Overall Review: Haven't used the speakers, but who would anyways?
Overall, a very good monitor. Especially for the price.
