Good stuff

CORSAIR Vengeance Pro 16GB (2 x 8GB) 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM DDR3 1866 Desktop Memory Model CMY16GX3M2A1866C9R
CORSAIR Vengeance Pro 16GB (2 x 8GB) 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM DDR3 1866 Desktop Memory Model CMY16GX3M2A1866C9R

Pros: They look great and they worked with no problems what so ever but the part I didn't expect was how well they take overclocking. I'm currently running them at 2145mhz with 9-9-9-24 timing and they are rock solid stable. I have stress tested this new system like crazy and this memory doesn't bat an eye.

Cons: none whatsoever.

Overall Review: system specs: ASUS Sabertooth r2.0 990fx AMD 8320 OC'd to 4.5ghz. 2- Radion 7850 2gig cards crossfired 2- corsair GS SSD's 240gig. in raid 0 2- seagate 1 TB hybrid drives in raid 0 16gig's Corsair Vengeance pro ram @ 2145mhz Corsair H100i water cooler Corsair HX-750w PSU

Pros: Ok I admit I've not used ssd's prior to this but WOW!!!!! I have 2 of these in a raid 0 config. and they absolutely scream. Windows 7 pro fully loads in 42 sec. most programs,applications and games load almost instantaneously it's truly amazing. I doubt I'll ever build another system with out using these drives.

Cons: none, nada, zilch, zero

Pros: Very strong board Great feature set and excellent overclocking ability. well worth the money spent.

Cons: not really a con since I knew very well what I was buying but it would be nice if this board came with onboard wireless support.

Overall Review: I bought this for a new build and it has performed flawlessly. system specs: ASUS Sabertooth r2.0 990fx AMD 8320 OC'd to 4.5ghz. 2- Radion 7850 2gig cards crossfired 2- corsair GS SSD's 240gig. in raid 0 2- seagate 1 TB hybrid drives in raid 0 16gig's Corsair Vengeance pro ram @ 2145mhz Corsair H100i water cooler Corsair HX-750w PSU

Pros: clean install comes with lots of cables, its whisper quite and has power to spare for most builds I'm running 11 fans, 4 hard drives and 2 7850 graphic cards on it and it is working flawlessly

Cons: none so far

Overall Review: I bought this during the black friday sale for a great price to use in my new build and it's a great PSU I love it, and the packaging is awesome makes you feel like you bought something special Lol.

fantastic processor

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: at this price point you simply can't beat this processor!

Cons: we'll it is not really a con to me because I never intended to use it but the stock cooler really isn't good for any thing other than maybe a paper weight. I don't know it might work for someone who wont ever be stressing the chip?

Overall Review: I bought this during the black friday sale for a all new build. currently have it running at 4.5ghz. stable with Corsair H100i water cooler and a Asus Sabortooth r2.0 mother board. if you keep this CPU cool and put it in a good mother board it will overclock like crazy. Honestly unless your doing massive video encoding or some other seriously CPU intensive work then buy this chip there is absolutely no reason to pay more, this thing will handle pretty much anything you throw at it and ask for more. I have seen where people complain about the heat but all I can say is if your going to push this CPU plan on a good cooling solution. I chose the H100i and idle temps are 18-20c and fully loaded in Prime95 for 2 hours they peak at about 52c but seriously heat is something you should expect to deal with on any modern CPU when you push it.

Great case!!

Corsair Vengeance Series C70 Arctic White Steel ATX Mid Tower Computer Case
Corsair Vengeance Series C70 Arctic White Steel ATX Mid Tower Computer Case

Pros: open,clean,sturdy, lots of fan options, excellent cable management and in my opinion a nice clean look, looks very refined and professional. plenty of room for even the biggest video cards. I have 2 7870's in it and there's room to spare.

Cons: honestly none that come to mind. I would like to see them add a filter for the power supply intake but that's not really a con.

Overall Review: I read through every review before deciding to buy this case and I've got to say now after getting it that almost every negative review this case got was user error. example some people complained about bubbles in the tinted window Lol REALLY?? it's a protective film put there to protect the window PEEL IT OFF. another example is the rubber grommets for the fan mounting locations many people claimed the screws would not work or that the thought the fan or cooler would not hold. the case is made this way to eliminate or at least reduce vibration from fans, your not supposed to crank down on the screws just snug them up enough to secure the fan or cooler and that's it. I have 11 fans in this case including the 4 on the h100i mounted in the top, and yes you can mount it in a push pull configuration. read the specs,read the reviews and if at that point you think this sounds like the right case for you then just buy it you absolutely will not be disappointed.
