Pros: Build Quality Design (cooler and LEDs) Performance Card bracket (yes you need it)

CORSAIR DOMINATOR 6GB (3 x 2GB) DDR3 1600 (PC3 12800) Triple Channel Kit Desktop Memory Model TR3X6G1600C8D

Pros: Corsair has always been a favorite of mine. High quality product and good support. I will continue to use them for most of my memory needs.

Cons: EVGA X58 Boards cannot run this memory more times than not at rated 1600 speed or with XP profile.

Overall Review: Wish they would team up with EVGA to work this out....

Asrock Quailty Slipping

ASRock H87M Pro4/ASM LGA 1150 Intel H87 HDMI SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 Micro ATX Intel Motherboard
ASRock H87M Pro4/ASM LGA 1150 Intel H87 HDMI SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 Micro ATX Intel Motherboard

Pros: Nice Feature set for $$

Cons: Quality control getting worse at Asrock. This is becoming nearly 50% prospect for me and my business to return (1) in nearly ever (2) MBs we buy from Asrock as of late. Last go around for us until channel inspection is improved. Problem for this board: 20 A gate chip. Cannot override this error even w/USB KYB.

Overall Review: I like Asrock, but as stated, Quality control is hurting very, very badly. Will look else were until improved quality is reported by channel reviewers

KIN 2200AP

PCM Powercom KING PRO KIN-2200AP 2200 VA 6 Outlets UPS
PCM Powercom KING PRO KIN-2200AP 2200 VA 6 Outlets UPS

Pros: Works as advertised (- the somewhat short battery life); solid construction; Very easy to replace the (4) 12v batteries

Cons: Had to replace batteries in just 3 years, thought it would last 5 years. Unit in new construction home.

Overall Review: Well designed,easy to open and clearly marked once on the inside of UPS, Batteries are in a sliding tray. PCB is very nice soldering is top notch, Japanese caps. All cables are very good quality and low gauge. Be sure to let it discharge fully if you attempt to open/replace batteries.

Cons: None at this time

Overall Review: Client wanted a "haswell" based machine to try out. This board has many good features and delivers on quality. At this early stage I would definately recommend it.

Alpha Dawg Baby !!!

Pros: Build Quality: Excellent build and carefully thought out kit. Perfectly machined aluminum posts screws thread nicely into. All screws/parts are numbered in a plastic see through storage case, and there are lots of extras for MB, HDD, optical drives, and it even has pull-out "tool-less" like HDD bays. SSD? yup, you can mount them too. Highly impressive overall. Instructions are not bad. However, you can watch the "egg" video too.

Cons: None as of yet. Only real concern is possible static or grounding issues. Hopefully none will arise.

Overall Review: I think this is a must have for you Bench guys out there...
