Cons: Ordered 3 sticks 1 DOA 2 work fine

Overall Review: AMD ATHLON X2 3800+, EVGA 7900gt, 2gb Corsair XMS, ASUS M2N SLi DELUXE

Pros: Well its silent I hear absolutley no noise from this psu whatsoever, its also very cool and it kept everything well powered I don't know why it died but guess it did and can't do anything about that can I?

Cons: it died

Overall Review: I'm definantly going to rma this one in exchange for the same model I do like this psu and it hasn't done bad at all I'll give it another shot

Nice sticks one dead

CORSAIR XMS2 2GB (2 x 1GB) DDR2 675 (PC2 5400) Dual Channel Kit Desktop Memory Model TWIN2X2048-5400c4
CORSAIR XMS2 2GB (2 x 1GB) DDR2 675 (PC2 5400) Dual Channel Kit Desktop Memory Model TWIN2X2048-5400c4

Pros: Great ram, with only 1gb of this and a dual core processor I run bf2 with no lag and bf2 is known for being a system hog liking 2gb this ram is speedy as well

Cons: I had to up the voltage to 1.95 in order to acheive the advertised cl4 667mhz timings

Overall Review: I'm not giving it 4 stars because a stick died but 4 stars because I had to do something to get it working at the proper times to boot windows up.

Great Card

EVGA 256-P2-N563-AX GeForce 7900GT 256MB 256-bit GDDR3 PCI Express x16 SLI Supported Video Card

Pros: Amazing card high frames, low temps if you have the right cooling, stock cooler is OK if your case is good you'll be fine, no artifacting, no over heating good deal.

Cons: none...SLI would be overkill

Overall Review: I play mostly bf2, it averages around 70-80+ fps most of the time with only 1gb ram and still no lag w/ a little overclock on my cpu and another gig of ram it'll be set, hitman game also looks great and is a nice bundle, quake 4 also runs super smooth 4xaa 8xaf high maxfps=60 I never dipped below 60 :)

1337 processor

Pros: Extremely fast, allows me to run multiple programs at once without a hitch its also great for gaming especially when the game has a dual core feature it really flys

Cons: none

Overall Review: I was doing all these at once no lag, installing bf2, uninstalling hitman, playing music, browsing internet,burning a cd, while downloading music, downloading the quake 4 patch, in pretty much all under a minute, under 30 seconds if you don't count bf2 can you get any more l337 than that I think not.

Nice Cooler

MASSCOOL 5T321B1H3G 70 x 70 x 15mm Ball CPU Cooler
MASSCOOL 5T321B1H3G 70 x 70 x 15mm Ball CPU Cooler

Pros: Very good for socket A great replacement plus very large fan and since the body of the heatsink slims down like in the picture you can have the large fan and great heatsink keeps my cpu cool 38-42 degrees and around 48 full load great buy with aspire case NEWEGG does it again go newegg

Cons: It keeps it cooler than stock fan but I don't feel as much air coming out as I would have thought o well not much to complain about still great fan for 7.49 great deal.

Overall Review: Cheap, Cool, Quiet, Efficient I would only recommend this same fan with LED's if you want them but I couldn't find one that matched my case LED'S great buy
