Dynatron A5JG 77mm 2 Ball CPU Cooler
Dynatron A5JG 77mm 2 Ball CPU Cooler

Pros: comes with an attachable mount for your motherboard (i got rid of my plastic one) cpu idles 31; load 42. came with a free tube of thermal compound

Cons: none; other than slightly noisey on full load.

Overall Review: clip-less design

Most Critical Review
MSI K9MM-V AM2 VIA K8M800 Micro ATX AMD Motherboard
MSI K9MM-V AM2 VIA K8M800 Micro ATX AMD Motherboard

Pros: it works ,not as great as I expected - and not worth the troubles to keep agp8x.

Cons: usb is shot. motherboard will not POST with a usb optical mouse. ram issues - poor bios settings. not possible to set proper timings and voltages (1.8v-2.0v)

Overall Review: trouble with big graphics card as the IDE is in the way. overall poor bios settings. IMO was not worth keeping old radeon9800. RMAing for an ASUS and upgrading to PCI-e.

Crucial Ballistix 2GB (2 x 1GB) DDR2 800 (PC2 6400) Dual Channel Kit Desktop Memory Model BL2KIT12864AA804
Crucial Ballistix 2GB (2 x 1GB) DDR2 800 (PC2 6400) Dual Channel Kit Desktop Memory Model BL2KIT12864AA804

Pros: wow this ram must have been made for overclocking because it runs perfectly smooth @1000 with stock timings 4-4-4-12. crank the voltage to 2.3-2.4 and your flying @1200 with stock latency. if you plan on staying @800, you can crank the timings with minimal voltage increase

Cons: heatsinks could have been a little more hardcore IMHO.

Overall Review: this ran fine using 1.9-2.0v on my other restricted mobo @800 4-4-4-12 but it was not overclockable

ughh.

Cons: riva is picking it up as a 400/600 clocks.....wuts going on here?

Overall Review: going to be lookin further into this

excellente

NZXT Zero Black/Silver Aluminum ATX Full Tower Computer Case
NZXT Zero Black/Silver Aluminum ATX Full Tower Computer Case

Pros: installation was a breeze. very spacious. the fans run quiet but seem extremely effective, as my system temps are in the high 20s and cpu idles in the low 30s, and high 30s on load. case is made out of a heat-sink type of material(except for panels). air filters also impressed me and it seams every intake has been engineered for optimum cooling directed straight to your hdd, mobo, cpu, ram, and g-card. exhaust were great and a quick fix to the top 8th fan and my power supply fit!

Cons: the screwless pci bracket thing couldn't hold my radeon and I had to resort to using screws (which the bracket nicely got in the way of)

Overall Review: great case, bracket thing didn't bother me that much once I got everything in there.

wow

Saitek PZ30AU 104 Normal Keys 4 Function Keys USB Wired Standard Eclipse Blue Backlit Keyboard
Saitek PZ30AU 104 Normal Keys 4 Function Keys USB Wired Standard Eclipse Blue Backlit Keyboard

Pros: i couldn't have spent better money elsewhere. I want one of these for the rest of my life. excellent keys, soft as laptop keys, spread apart and sturdy like a desktop keyboard. no excessive keys to get in the way, blue LED numlock/caplock/scrollock compliments backlit keys. dim feature is very useful. great sturdy grips to keep it in PLACE. extending palm-rest fits my oversized hands- overall amazing keyboard

Cons: none; other than the missing a cool blue LED under the keyboard for effect >.<

Overall Review: great for night use and you need to find your fingering. this is my gaming keyboard for it's comfort and sensitivity
