RAIDMAX Tornado ATX-238WU Black / Blue SECC Steel ATX Mid Tower Computer Case
RAIDMAX Tornado ATX-238WU Black / Blue SECC Steel ATX Mid Tower Computer Case

Pros: I've bought like 10 of these cases...Cheap, stylish, bright, sturdy, very few sharp of edges, 3 fans, not loud...and very cheap in price....sometimes they do a free shipping on this color for $44.99

Cons: Most motherboards has the audio slot on the far corner...however the provided cord for the front panel will not reach unless you take off the front panel and rewire the cord so it'll fit....Only comes with exactly 6 motherboard risers...what happens if I accidentally lose one?...please add 1 extra.

Overall Review: I bought some air vent covers to use as filtered air vents for the intake fans. Customers love the idea!....... I took out the front red and blue hard drive and power lights and stuck them in the case to brighten it up even more with blue and now it has a cool tint of flashing red!...The GTX 260 graphics card is on of the biggest graphics cards on the market...it's like a foot long...you have to cut the case in order to fit it in there...however you can make it fit....HD4800 series fits with ease.

Good but not perfect

Patriot Extreme Performance Gaming Series 4GB (2 x 2GB) DDR2 800 (PC2 6400) Desktop Memory Model PGS24G6400ELK
Patriot Extreme Performance Gaming Series 4GB (2 x 2GB) DDR2 800 (PC2 6400) Desktop Memory Model PGS24G6400ELK

Pros: It worked.

Cons: Failed at 1066 advertised Mhz when I tried to overclock the processor. Don't buy if your a overclocker. If everything was running at stock speeds then the 1066Mhz would work without a hickup. I had to run at DDR2 800Mhz and I was able to overclock the Phenom II 965 up to 3.95Ghz x4. Why buy custom computer parts if you can't overclock.

Explosive sound Great price

Rosewill 5.1-Channel Vibrating Gaming Headset- USB Connector - RHTS-8206
Rosewill 5.1-Channel Vibrating Gaming Headset- USB Connector - RHTS-8206

Pros: The sound quality is amazing. Went to retail store and some turtle beach headsets were on display. Even the $149 pair was junk compaired to these. These Rosewell pair has crisp hd sound and extremely hi quality base. These are like 3D sound because of the awesome vibration.

Cons: There are 3 base/vibration settings. Off/medium/high. The explosiveness on high setting is sometimes to much. Im good with medium setting.

Overall Review: Didnt try the mic yet

Amazing processor for the money

AMD FX-8320 - FX-8000 Series Vishera 8-Core 3.5 GHz (4.0 GHz Turbo) Socket AM3+ 125W Desktop Processor - FD8320FRHKBOX
AMD FX-8320 - FX-8000 Series Vishera 8-Core 3.5 GHz (4.0 GHz Turbo) Socket AM3+ 125W Desktop Processor - FD8320FRHKBOX

Pros: Got this bad boy OC'd to 4.7 on PRIME95 for an hour with no throttling. At 1.45v....tons of bio tweaks. Google: [OFFICIAL] FX-8320/FX-8350 Vishera Owners Club and they pinpoint teaks/everything. HUGE community! Almost 3000 pages on one thread! Don't buy the FX 8350 because your only gonna get an extra 100-300Mhz if your lucky. Not worth the price. 5Ghz is a lucky processor for any 8350/8320. They all do 4.5Ghz respectively.

Cons: You must get liquid cooling in order to have fun with this processor. Corsair is starting to sell the coolers with newer style/efficient pumps so keep that in mind. You can sell the stock FX cooler on e-b@y for $20.00 with free shipping EASILY!

Overall Review: I have a Asus M5A99FX Pro r2.0 but wish I got the Sabertooth instead which has better socket temps/more stable max load. With Corsair H90 water cooler, not getting hot CPU temps 55C on max load, but getting hot socket temps...Had to mod it with fans over the North Bridge/Voltage Regulator Module and another fan under my MOBO to cool off the socket.

WOW!!! ASUS IS AMAZING

ASUS Radeon R9 280X 3GB GDDR5 PCI Express 3.0 CrossFireX Support Video Card R9280X-DC2T-3GD5
ASUS Radeon R9 280X 3GB GDDR5 PCI Express 3.0 CrossFireX Support Video Card R9280X-DC2T-3GD5

Pros: Running stable for 15ish days now. 7970's Ghz editions comes clocked at 1050Ghz and this is defaulted at 1070Ghz... R9 280x with lower price? WOW!! With Asus' GPU tweak software got mine easily "super safe" at 1150Ghz. More headroom left...then even more headroom if upping the voltage. Max safe temp is 94C and with my overclocks I reach 80C after 15min using FurMark Benchmarking utility. The fan is NOT audible unless you put your ear 1ft from it, yes SERIOUSLY. Defaulted fan is 30% and you start to hear it at 45%...so much headroom on the fan decibel limit.

Cons: Big card... be careful. Sticks 2" past my MOBO. The heat blows out on both sides so it's not a exhaust only cooling.

Overall Review: I bought this card from tiger direct because newegg was out of stock. THERE IS 2 Versions of this card. The DC2T-3GD5 and the DC2T-3GD5 v2. The v2 card is actually a older version with only a 6000Mhz Memory instead of 6400Mhz like this one. Be careful. I'm using Asus M5A99FX Pro r2.0 MOBO with great results.

3 years and still running

WD VelociRaptor WD3000HLHX 300GB 10000 RPM 32MB Cache SATA 6.0Gb/s 3.5" Internal Hard Drive Bare Drive
WD VelociRaptor WD3000HLHX 300GB 10000 RPM 32MB Cache SATA 6.0Gb/s 3.5" Internal Hard Drive Bare Drive

Pros: I bought a 140GB model 3 years ago before SSD's became affordable. This drive is still running strong as my OS drive!!! Cold temps compaired to my WD black 1TB. Great price to storage to performance ratio.

Cons: Spinning at 10000RPM means more watts from the PSU.

Overall Review: Upgrading to Corsair Force SSD.
