SWEET

ABS Gift Noise Reduction Headphones
ABS Gift Noise Reduction Headphones

Pros: WOW.. Ive always looked at the bulky headphones as .. well Bulky=uncomfortable. But wow.. these are sweet.. I can hear my wife talking to me.. and she cant hear the guns blazeing.. I took them off and held them a few inches from my head and could barely hear them. And arnt to bad comfort wise for a couple hours straight.

Cons: I need a set with a mic on them now :/

BIG AND COOL

ASUS Arctic Square 92mm Vapo Bearing CPU Cooler
ASUS Arctic Square 92mm Vapo Bearing CPU Cooler

Pros: Love the nickel plate :) Keeps cpu at constant 32 C no matter what I do doesnt seem to phase it.. at times can get up to 35 but not a huge jump from standby to all out usage.

Cons: Like one of the previous reviews .. the lights dont work. And also like that same review.. Im not about to take it apart.

Overall Review: I bought it for funtcional reasons not the lights.. I have an asus mb so I knew itd fit..is a tight fit but no issues. Would have been nice if the lights worked.. but my case is already loaded with blue lights anyway :P

Good history

Pros: Seems fast enough, plenty of solid reviews have no issues or complaints.

Cons: none

COOL

CORSAIR DOMINATOR 4GB (2 x 2GB) DDR2 1066 (PC2 8500) Dual Channel Kit Desktop Memory Model TWIN2X4096-8500C5DF
CORSAIR DOMINATOR 4GB (2 x 2GB) DDR2 1066 (PC2 8500) Dual Channel Kit Desktop Memory Model TWIN2X4096-8500C5DF

Pros: It was this or some OCZ.. seen more success/info with corsair and asus striker II so went with these. Name brand memory with a solid history.

Cons: No lights :P

Overall Review: Not sure I like the fans.. guess I could take them out. Was worried at first that they would disrupt/block airflow but pc runs at constant temp no matter what I do.

1st Intel in years

Intel Core 2 Quad Q6700 - Core 2 Quad Kentsfield Quad-Core 2.66 GHz LGA 775 95W Processor - BX80562Q6700
Intel Core 2 Quad Q6700 - Core 2 Quad Kentsfield Quad-Core 2.66 GHz LGA 775 95W Processor - BX80562Q6700

Pros: What can I say.. I was an AMD fanboy, and well Intel has not only taken the lead but come out with something far superior. Maybe AMD will break back in when its time to build another pc.. but anything but Intel atm is denial of the truth.

Cons: Stock cpu cooler? I loath cpu coolers with the push/twist knobs.. when will the industry go back to solid nuts and bolts :) ..

Overall Review: Get your self a real cpu cooler.. Ive always used stock coolers as Ive never ocd much. Plan on it now and even without oc a $40 cpu cooler Im running gives a good 20 degress less no matter what Im doing.

Justice

Pros: Words cannot not do justice to this beautiful piece of art. Case for the cables, anti-static gloves, bag for the psu, screwdriver, antivibration gasket. You can tell the people that put this together not only love pcs, but love their psu!!

Cons: Wish they made a UPS that matched :)

Overall Review: First it was the looks that caught my eye.. then it was the sheer beauty, pride and love that you see put into every aspect, from the psu to the packaging and extra goodies.
