SAMSUNG 840 Pro Series 2.5" 256GB SATA III MLC Internal Solid State Drive (SSD) MZ-7PD256BW

Pros: Great SSD fast

Cons: newegg packaging is to be desired. put in just an envelope they need to a better job packing. I am a long time customer they use to do right, but they seem to have down hill

Most Critical Review

Load and forget the Rebate

RAIDMAX HYBRID 2 RX-730SS 730W ATX12V V2.2/ EPS12V SLI Ready CrossFire Ready Modular Power Supply, New Version with Build-in LED Fan On/Off Switch
RAIDMAX HYBRID 2 RX-730SS 730W ATX12V V2.2/ EPS12V SLI Ready CrossFire Ready Modular Power Supply, New Version with Build-in LED Fan On/Off Switch

Pros: none

Cons: I purchased 2 Raid Max PSU with so called rebates its now been 2 years and no rebate. They are a bit to loud for my ears as well.

Overall Review: I ended up tossing both PSUs in the trash and went with Corsair (much better and I got my rebates in 3 weeks.)

SILVERSTONE Grandia Series GD10B Aluminum HTPC for ATX / Micro-ATX / SSI-CEB Computer Case

Pros: well built and lots of room for HDD and 1 SSD plus a full DVD And my choice for using my old ATX asus z77 MB and gtx 550TI as well ATX PSU

Cons: unable to install any real aftermarket Heatsink and Fan I had to go with stock intel heatsink

Overall Review: over all it works great for my HTPC

old Ivy bridge did better

Intel Core i7-4790K - Core i7 4th Gen Devil's Canyon Quad-Core 4.0 GHz LGA 1150 88W Intel HD Graphics 4600 Desktop Processor - BX80646I74790K
Intel Core i7-4790K - Core i7 4th Gen Devil's Canyon Quad-Core 4.0 GHz LGA 1150 88W Intel HD Graphics 4600 Desktop Processor - BX80646I74790K

Pros: None

Cons: Over clocked on my new ASUS MAXIMUS VII HERO Corsair H 100i the best is 4.4 my old 3570K would go to 4.6 This must be just a low end chip

Overall Review: Should have gone with 4770K instead
