P67A-GD65

MSI P67A-GD65 (B3) LGA 1155 Intel P67 SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 ATX Intel Motherboard
MSI P67A-GD65 (B3) LGA 1155 Intel P67 SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 ATX Intel Motherboard

Pros: -It looks great. The OC genie is a great feature for people new to overclocking and it gives you a general idea of how it works. -On-board on, reset switches! -Cool looking heat-sink (Although its covered if you have a big cooler) -Lots of fan connectors.

Cons: Its just BIOS problems. -This board doesnt have Voltage Offset mode or Vdroop options, which can make overclocking way easier. -The voltage is off by .15, so its a pain to figure out what you're really at w/o using CPU-Z. -The temps are off by about 35 degrees (ex.RealTemp=27c, BIOS=55c) Other than that, maybe the location of the SATA connectors. It can be in the way of your video card, but I dont have this problem with a EVGA GTX570.

Overall Review: This is a good board for beginner overclockers. I wouldn't recommend it for those hard-core overclockers, because it lacks some features that are needed (like offset and Vdroop). It looks nice if you have a black/blue color scheme!

Major Disappointments

CORSAIR Hydro Series H80 (CWCH80) High Performance Liquid CPU Cooler
CORSAIR Hydro Series H80 (CWCH80) High Performance Liquid CPU Cooler

Pros: It turns on.

Cons: Pump is grinding. It isn't water trapped, its the actual pump.

Overall Review: This is my SECOND H80 as both of them has the same exact noise and problem. So far I've spent 26 dollars on shipping for RMA. There's no way I can keep returning this bad unit.

Best Full Tower

Pros: -The cable management is great. You get a nice big hole at the bottom. -The airflow is also fantastic and the fans are quiet. -Don't forget about the ENORMOUS amount of water cooling opportunities.

Cons: -The plastic feet are VERY cheap. One of mine came broken and I had to get a replacement. They also make black marking on desks. -Not all the thumbscrews are the same size, so don't lose them! -The back of the case needs more room for cables. It's hard to get the side panel if you have tons of more cables than usual, especially because it's a slide-on. If you have a normal amount of cables, it should be fine.

Overall Review: This thing is giant.

Awesome!

ASUS VS Series VS247H-P 24" (Actual size 23.6") Full HD 1920 x 1080 60Hz HDMI VGA DVI-D SPLENDID Modes Widescreen LED Backlight LCD Monitor
ASUS VS Series VS247H-P 24" (Actual size 23.6") Full HD 1920 x 1080 60Hz HDMI VGA DVI-D SPLENDID Modes Widescreen LED Backlight LCD Monitor

Pros: This monitor is just beautiful! Great picture and contrast, big screen. Easy unboxing. The monitor supports vga dvi hdmi, you name it.

Cons: The settings/menu is somewhat hard to use. Took me a some time to get used to it.

Overall Review: The stand isn't wobbly as some people say. If you have a decent desk, you should be fine. It only shakes if you shake your entire desk.

Not worth the price

Tritton AX720 Dolby Digital Surround Sound Headset
Tritton AX720 Dolby Digital Surround Sound Headset

Pros: Great sound and AMAZING bass. I really love using these while playing Battlefield 3 or other games that use surround sound. I feel like I'm really there. I like how the ear things light up too, because I love nerdy things like that.

Cons: I have a few 1 - They are SUPER delicate!!!! If I'm going to buy an expensive headset like this, I should expect a little bit more sturdiness. In one year, TWO of these broke. It isn't because I dropped them or anything, but the ear pieces just degraded and fell apart from too much usage. It is made of CHEAP plastic, so be aware. But I would imagine if you drop these on the ground, carpet, tile or wood, they WILL break. 2 - The wire used for connections is very cheap. It gets tangled and eventually twists into a crazy contraption so much so that I cannot untwist it. It would be a better idea to get a braided cable braided or something that is a bigger gauge.

Overall Review: OVERALL...Great headphones besides the fact that they are extremely delicate. I do not recommend these for people that are not careful with their things. Honestly, they are not worth this much money. I would look into other headsets before considering this delicate piece of plastic. If they lowered the price to about 70-85 dollars, they would definitely be worth it.

BEAST

EVGA SuperClocked 012-P3-1572-AR GeForce GTX 570 (Fermi) 1280MB 320-bit GDDR5 PCI Express 2.0 x16 HDCP Ready SLI Support Video Card

Pros: This thing is just awesome lol. I play BF3 with mostly high settings (didnt expect all ultra) It looks great.

Cons: It's a little on the loud side when i put some gaming on it. It isnt horrible though.

Overall Review: Get this.
