Awesome Keyboard!

Logitech G510s Illuminated USB Gaming Keyboard
Logitech G510s Illuminated USB Gaming Keyboard

Pros: Keys are very quiet. Everything has a soft touch feel to it. Don't have any problems hitting the space bar and getting it to work (But then again, I had a G110 before this, which needed to have the space bar hit in the middle to work)

Cons: No USB port on the keyboard. LCD is kind of useless since not many games support it.

Overall Review: Love how it's fully RGB backlit so I can do any color I like.

Works well

Pros: Fast. Cheaper than SSDs used to be. Not DOA. Works exactly like you'd expect. Computer boots in seconds.

Cons: N/A

Pros: Fast. 8.2/9.9 on the Windows rating. Not DOA. Stays nice and cool.

Cons: None.

Overall Review: I didn't even bother with the stock fan, but from what I've heard it works alright.

Massive but gets the job done.

Pros: Keeps my CPU freezing! Temps are crazy low and the fan is almost silent.

Cons: Installation is not quite straightforward. Takes a bit of playing around with to get it fitting.

It's a slot-loader!

Pros: Works well. Comes with a kit if i want to install it in a desktop.

Cons: Flimsy plastic and metal. But at the price what can you expect?

Overall Review: Would've been nice if it gave me more than a trial of PowerDVD.

Excellent SFF Case

SilverStone Sugo Series SG10B Black Aluminum front panel, steel body Micro ATX Mini Tower Computer Case

Pros: Small! I don't know why I ever used ATX cases. Fits huge graphics cards no problem. Also fits my 120mm CPU cooler. Definitely one of the funner builds I've ever done. Sturdy. I know this case is going to last.

Cons: It's a very tight fit with a big graphics card. The case fan for the card was smacked up against the power cables for the GPU. The case sides are really hard to get on right and require two philips head screws along with the finger-screws in the back to hold them on...kind of pointless to have finger-screws if i'm going to have to break out a screwdriver regardless. The instructions for installing hard drives are a bit vague, and one of the 2.5in drive holders was bent out of the box. GPU Side Fan was really loud too...just unplugged it.

Overall Review: If you're looking for a cheap slot-loading DVD drive, use Newegg # 9SIA14J1051126. I can't remember if it's in the manual, but to install it you'll need to take the metal slot-loading drive cover off of the Sugo case (comes off with 2 philips-head screws) and take the little plastic cover inside of this cover out. Then it's just a matter of taking the DVD drive out of the 5-1/4" holder and pop it in the case. Works like a charm.
