Most Critical Review

Piece of Garbage DOA

MSI MSI Gaming Z97-G45 Gaming LGA 1150 Intel Z97 HDMI SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 ATX Intel Motherboard

Pros: Looks great & really wanted it to work.

Cons: Checked the (JPWR1 and JPRW2), cleared CMOS. Swapped PSU from another system. It's clearly the motherboard which is garbage.

Overall Review: Have a MSI GPU I just bought as well -- hoping that it craps out early while it's still under warranty.

Pros: Most of you don't need my opinion. It works as intended.

Cons: None

Overall Review: It fit into my mb like a dream, it was like those two were meant to be.

Pros: Love the pressure sensitive menu bar on the bottom. If you like the looks of a PS3 then you'll like this. Very bright Has a menu option that will hurl flaming fireballs of Papa John's Pizzeria at you.....seriously.

Cons: The stand needs improvement, I must have almost knocked it down 5-6 times within a half hour period of tinkering around it.

Overall Review: Sexy, but fragile.

Pros: HDMI is a pleasant feature Operates as intended

Cons: I'm not a big fan of the mb port slot cover, though a few minutes and pliers fixes that.

Overall Review: Make sure you have a nice Power supply unit or else this MB will occasionally reboot due to power loss.

LOGISYS Computer Area 51 CS51WBK Black Steel ATX Mid Tower Computer Case 480W Power Supply

Pros: Nice case for the money People thinks it looks very masculine Front exterior is nice looking

Cons: They can at least outfit this pc with front and rear fans.

Overall Review: Although this doesn't contain the features that I usually get with a $50-100 case, it does come well decked out, just make sure to have some fans nearby, a neat feature is that the rear exhaust fan can hold a variety (3) of fan sizes, though nothing around 250mm of course :P
