Awesome So Far

OCZ Agility 3 2.5" 120GB SATA III MLC Internal Solid State Drive (SSD) AGT3-25SAT3-120G

Pros: Smooth install. Win 7 64bit turned off defrag like I had read it was going to. I went ahead and turned off indexing, ran WEI and scored my expected 7.9. Oh and windows took a gran total of 10 min to install and get to desktop (gotta love that). I ran ATTO on it and scored read/writes of 109/142 at 4k and 555/515 overall. Very Nice :)

Cons: Price maybe? Maybe not lol. It did not come with a bracket, wish it had.

Overall Review: So far so good. Its a nice upgrade from my old yet serviceable (though noisey) 150gb WD Rapters. Will try and remember to update if anything changes.

DOA

Patriot Gamer 2 Series 8GB (2 x 4GB) DDR3 1600 (PC3 12800) Desktop Memory Model PGD38G1600ELK

Pros: Great price.

Cons: Had trouble with this right from the start. Running it at stock timings and voltage it would not reliably work with my MSI P67A-GD53. I got it to boot MAYBE three times out of countless attempts. Patriot says that it maynot work as advertised in P67 motherboards. It might have been that or it just may have been the un-luck of the draw. Anyway I replaced with another well known brand and everything was fine.

Whats not to love?

Intel Core i5-2500K - Core i5 2nd Gen Sandy Bridge Quad-Core 3.3GHz (3.7GHz Turbo Boost) LGA 1155 95W Intel HD Graphics 3000 Desktop Processor - BX80623I52500K

Pros: My oh my! How I love this cpu! This thing OCs to 4.5ghz stable without much serious effort. I think if I get the voltages right 4.6ghz might be attainable. This is the best cpu I have ever owned...hands down!

Cons: Are you kidding??

EVGA 01G-P3-1373-TR GeForce GTX 460 (Fermi) Superclocked EE 1GB 256-bit GDDR5 PCI Express 2.0 x16 HDCP Ready SLI Support Video Card

Pros: Works like a champ. Idle temps where in the 30's, load temps where about 69c and that is with it OCd a little bit using EVGAs precision software. Scored 7.6 in windows.

Cons: None

Overall Review: Great buy for the price!
