GIGABYTE GA-Z68P-DS3 LGA 1155 Intel Z68 HDMI SATA 6Gb/s ATX Intel Motherboard
GIGABYTE GA-Z68P-DS3 LGA 1155 Intel Z68 HDMI SATA 6Gb/s ATX Intel Motherboard

Pros: PERFECT for the i52500k overclocks with a click of a few buttons. Great overclocking XMP for ram. Smaller design which gives you a lot more room in your mother board after mounting this thing HDMI for built in video is preferred. I can't believe this thing is Z68 and so cost efficient!

Cons: Cannot truly control fan speed from bios. My AMD build with an MSI mobo allows me to get the fan speed by percentage which is really handy for my Scythe Ultra Kaze fan, since that thing sounds like a jet engine on high.

Overall Review: I was very skeptical to purchase this motherboard since I typically rock MSI boards, but I am very satisfied thus far with my choice in this board.

Most Critical Review
APEX SK-393-C Black Steel ATX Mid Tower Computer Case
APEX SK-393-C Black Steel ATX Mid Tower Computer Case

Pros: Stylish look

Cons: Used this for a client's build, didn't have a whole lot of room for cable management. 80/92mm front and rear fans leave a lot of cooling possibility to be desired Power button mushy Extremely sharp metal near i/o shield.

Overall Review: Client picked this case, and was overall satisfied with it, a lot more than I was at least

Great upgrade from launch PRO

Pros: Significantly more quiet than my launch PS4 PRO

Cons: It runs slightly warmer, but you wouldn't really be able to tell.

Second time was the charm.

Pros: -1440p -1ms Response Time -27 inches

Cons: -Base is a bit wobbly

Overall Review: Ordered two of these during a Newegg sell, when they arrived both had dead pixels and marring in the anti-gloss coating, sent them in for a replacement, the replacement screens arrived perfect.

Wow

Phanteks Enthoo Pro Series PH-ES614P_BK Black Steel / Plastic ATX Full Tower Computer Case
Phanteks Enthoo Pro Series PH-ES614P_BK Black Steel / Plastic ATX Full Tower Computer Case

Pros: Tons of space to work with Gorgeous "brushed metal" finish Hard drive bays came out easily

Cons: Stock 200mm fan was a bit loud, replaced it with a CM 200MM fan. Not docking an egg, great deal for this case

Overall Review: I used a HAF X previous to this build and I can honestly say that I prefer the Phanteks Enthoo Pro, though some wheels would be nice... this thing gets heavy!

Cons: None so far

Overall Review: Purchased to play Dota 2 on my laptop while on the go, using a track pad is IMPOSSIBLE. So far so good.
