Pros: Very quiet. No problems installing. Comes with software and sata cable if you need it.

Cons: A little pricey compared to other drives with the same capabilities.

Overall Review: I have become an MSI nerd after such a good experience with my new MSI motherboard. That is pretty much the only reason I spent the extra money on this drive.

Most Critical Review

Doesn't work on Toshiba Satellite A305-S6916

12Cell 8800mAh Battery for Toshiba Satellite A305 A305-S6916 Laptop
12Cell 8800mAh Battery for Toshiba Satellite A305 A305-S6916 Laptop

Pros: - Nice build quality based on looks - Fits inside the laptop

Cons: - Doesn't work at all. It was on the charger for a couple of hours and I didn't see any charge going to the battery. I restarted the computer and it showed full battery. I figured it must have been a glitch so I went ahead and unplugged the computer from power and it stayed up on for about 2 seconds before it completely shut down.

Overall Review: - I have heard of issues with Toshiba making it to where batteries are proprietary which is unfortunate. The brand name batteries are close to or over $100.

Haven't achieved 3200 yet. Still trying...

CORSAIR Dominator Platinum 32GB (2 x 16GB) DDR4 3200 (PC4 25600) Desktop Memory Model CMD32GX4M2C3200C16

Pros: Great look 2 sticks @16GB a piece allows for growth on the board

Cons: Mine is working with my MSI Z170A but I haven't achieved 3200 yet. I can decently close but I paid extra for the speed and I am not getting it. That's the only reason for 4 out of 5. To be honest, 3200 is overkill for what I am doing and the performance is excellent as is.

quiet and cold

COOLER MASTER V8 RR-UV8-XBU1-GP 120mm Rifle CPU Cooler Compatible with Intel 1366/1155/775 and AMD AM3/AM2+/AM2
COOLER MASTER V8 RR-UV8-XBU1-GP 120mm Rifle CPU Cooler Compatible with Intel 1366/1155/775 and AMD AM3/AM2+/AM2

Pros: kept my i5 at about 28c idle 32c under load. adjustable fan control with mount for back of the case. cool design.

Cons: HUGE! you need a full tower to fit this thing easily. a mid tower will work as long as you don't have a side case fan.

Overall Review: measure measure measure. great product.. price is going down. it does have a nice sturdy mount that fits most cpu's including 775, 1156, 1366, and most amd processors.

Antec Nine Hundred Black Steel ATX Mid Tower Computer Case with Upgraded USB 3.0

Pros: Great airflow Quiet Fans Almost all the fans come with the case. Nice clean look Easy install for everything Lots of space for cable management Dropped my cpu and board temp from 31 to 29 just by switching to this case.

Cons: The spot for a 120mm fan on the inside of the case is not very practical. I tried it just for kicks and it doesn't work. I can't see why it would need to be there either with all the other fans that are already there. There is no esata port on the front of the case like there is on the 902. I couldn't justify paying 30 or 40 bucks extra for 2 fan knobs and an esata port.

Overall Review: Don't get the antec300. It's a waste of money because it does not come with fans. The antec900 and 902 do which is why the price looks so much more. Do the math and you will see the 300 isn't worth it.

Amazing graphics / Amazingly LOUD!

ASUS GeForce 9600 GT 512MB GDDR3 PCI Express 2.0 x16 SLI Support Video Card EN9600GT/HTDI/512M

Pros: Graphics are stunning. I didn't notices a huge jump in graphics from the 8800 to the 9600 but its still nice. Very good price for what your getting. Easy easy install.

Cons: NOISY!!!!! It sounds like a weed eater. Mine sounds like at any moment it could burn up.. Hopefully that doesn't happen. I am thinking about returning it.

Overall Review: All the other reviews seem positive.. Maybe I got a lemon.
