BE HEKA for the win

AMD Phenom II X3 720 Black Edition - Phenom II X3 Heka Triple-Core 2.8 GHz Socket AM3 95W Processor - HDZ720WFK3DGI
AMD Phenom II X3 720 Black Edition - Phenom II X3 Heka Triple-Core 2.8 GHz Socket AM3 95W Processor - HDZ720WFK3DGI

Pros: Unlocked the fourth core out of box simply by enabling auto acc and unleashing. Did severe benchmark testing for 24 hours. Running like a champ.

Cons: No temperature readings when you unlock, but that's ok by me, my Corsair H50 keeps it plenty cool ;)

Overall Review: I guess I was lucky mine did unlock. Remember always that a processor should not be purchased assuming unlocking as a "feature", think of it as a possible bonus, but always assume the worst.

Quite Amazing

CORSAIR Hydro Series H50 120mm Quiet Edition Liquid CPU Cooler - Intel Only (CW-9060006-WW)
CORSAIR Hydro Series H50 120mm Quiet Edition Liquid CPU Cooler - Intel Only (CW-9060006-WW)

Pros: Excellent quality cooler, does what you expect from a liquid based cooling unit. All in one unit means no slip ups during install and spilling conductive liquid into your expensive electrical components.

Cons: Price was a LITTLE ouch. Installation seemed IMPOSSIBLE >>AT FIRST<< Go to corsairs site and WATCH THE INSTALLATION WALK THROUGH VIDEO, I promise everything will become quite clear, if you haven't used one before I almost GURANTEE you wont be able to do it by looking at the manual. However after installing it once, you'll be able to do it from memory.

Overall Review: NewEgg should package this with instructions to find the video on corsairs site... Just a thought.

Perfect

Pros: Excellent high quality, corrosion proof cable. HDMI at it's finest.

Cons: None whatsoever.

Excellent Case

GMC X-7 Black ABS / SECC steel Gaming ATX Mid Tower Computer Case w/ three fans- 1x 120mm front fan, 1x 120mm rear fan, 1x 80mm side-panel fan
GMC X-7 Black ABS / SECC steel Gaming ATX Mid Tower Computer Case w/ three fans- 1x 120mm front fan, 1x 120mm rear fan, 1x 80mm side-panel fan

Pros: Durable, nice faceplate, decent amount of room for spare cords from PSU. Rear fan port fit my Corsair H50 Liquid Cooling unit perfectly, no complaints. Loving the System Temp Display. One power button on front, one on top, excellent... Plenty of drive bays for later expansion. Stays super cool for all the hardware... I guess the liquid Cooling helps... Average System Temp: 28' C which is 82.4' F Certainly cooler than any of my previous systems and cooler than most systems I've seen (aside from most built with Antec cases)

Cons: The fan control hookup were a little confusing at first, but I won't mark it down for my first time fiddling with something, didn't take long to figue out. Manual really doesn't help at all.

Overall Review: "GMC" on top-left of faceplate... Hmm...

Excellent Board

ASUS M4A78T-E AM3 AMD 790GX HDMI ATX AMD Motherboard
ASUS M4A78T-E AM3 AMD 790GX HDMI ATX AMD Motherboard

Pros: This is an excellent board for those looking just below "Enthusiast" and just above "Professional". Popped in my AMD Phenom II 720 BE X3, enabled ACC and Unleashing and turned it right into a X4. Been running steady for weeks after burn-in test. Fits my Corsair H50 Liquid Cooler brackets just fine.

Cons: Didn't come with a taco?

Overall Review: Perfection at a decent price...

ZOTAC GeForce GT 220 1GB DDR2 PCI Express 2.0 x16 Video Card ZT-20203-10L

Pros: Performed exactly as expected, may not be the most powerful GPU or Graphics card available, and may not be SLi compatable, but I knew what I was purchasing and it certainly gets the job done with room to spare.

Cons: None whatsoever

Overall Review: HDcP-HDMI and LOVING IT
