Pros: Out of the box performance
No BIOS flashing needed
14gbps rated memory
Huge FPS increase over my RX 580 Pulse (obviously)
Elegant and simple (con to some people)
Huge and cools very well
Cons: Huge! I have an older Cooler Master 692, not a small case. Still had to butcher the HDD cage to get it to fit...
No RGB. In fact no lighting at all
Overall Review: I've been eyeballing the 5600 XT for awhile now and knew it was what I wanted. I am glad I waited for the 14gbps Thicc III Pro. Don't have to worry about voiding a warranty just to get the performance. Great card!
Pros: Dirt cheap, ~$25 at time of purchase
4 RAM slots
Cons: a cheaper MB but I knew that going in
Overall Review: this was a fantastic deal at the price point (~$25). I had been looking at upgrading my Mothers old Phenom X3 AM3 but with the marginal gains to the FX series I had been waiting for a good reason. When this came on sale at that price and a FX 6350 with a Wraith cooler for $99? How could I say no? I'm into it $125 and Mom has a fairly rad PC. I feel like I've done well here.
Pros: Very acceptable cooler
Cons: Pretty much nothing?
Overall Review: Great price (as of now), I have an 8350 but picked up an AM3+ board on sale for $25 so I decided to upgrade my Moms PC for her. For general stuff a mom would use a PC for this is overkill, which means I wont have to upgrade her for at least a few years. I like that idea. Also I was just messing around after installing and was able to get this to 4.7ghz on the Wraith cooler and it was stable and (decently)cool! I dropped it back down to stock but was impressed at how well it works. Anyways, blah blah blah, great cpu for the price and an even better deal when you throw in the Wraith cooler.
Pros: deep bass
Cons: none that ive noticed, possibly lacks mid-bass but that is what the tower speakers are for
Pros: Game immersion is great
Cons: I drink a lot and I noticed that I was constantly redoing levels because I was so seriously into the game. make sense?
Pros: small footprint, very decent bass for size, clean sound
Cons: feet are a little odd but growing on me
Overall Review: I only bought these because Newegg sold out of the monitor 70's. After getting a pair of these to my doorstep for a tick under 2 bills I have to say I am VERY impressed. As far as value goes these are pretty untouchable. Yes there are louder, cleaner, better sounding, and better looking speakers out there. But not anywhere near this $ range. These are full enough to be your fronts to your system but are going to be fantastic rears once the monitor 70's go on sale again!
Pros: Clean looks, not like a robot or transformer or any other fad that will be tacky in a year. Very clean inside, all rolled edges. Backside CPU fan to keep things chill. Able to turn off LEDs. Roomy.
Cons: I've been sitting here for almost 5 minutes trying to come up with a legitimate complaint. Hmmmm...really would have liked to have a USB 3.0 port on the front for future compatibility.
Overall Review: I have built 3 previous PC's for my own use and have always opted to save a few bucks with the case thinking that when it comes down to it only the guts of a PC really matter. I still find that mentality to be true but after recieving this case and completing my build I promise i will always find a way to scrape up the green for a good case. Every aspect of the build was more enjoyable. Everything fits, everything is cool, it looks very clean, and I didnt have to break into my 401K. Just a great value and a happy owner.
Pros: Just buy it. Feature rich and quality construction.
Cons: Only con is i wasted so much time browsing at other cases.....
Overall Review: If you are browsing for a new case and dont want to break into your 401K than this is it. Im glad i went with the advanced.
