Pros: I'm just shocked at how buttery smooth my gaming experience has been. I've had it for a day, upgrading from two generations back. It's like I'm playing a different game. Zero video lag at all on 1080p playing Dishonored today. This is a new experience for me. Great technology. Doesn't make too much noise either. I am pleased with my purchase.

Cons: None

Pros: Feels incredibly solid. IS very quiet, more than enough cords to power everything.

Cons: Make sure you get a case that allows you to perform some cable management. There really are a lot of extra power cables that need to be placed just "so" to keep your case clean and to ensure nice airflow. That being said, it's a great PS. Highly recommend.

Pros: What needs to be said here? Rarely do we see computer parts that are built well, do the job they claim, have easy installation, and *just work*. These are them. Fast, cool, low maintenance. Can't go wrong.

Cons: None

Pros: Cold as ice. Very nice. Solid construction, keeps my I5 idling around 30C. I have my computer a foot away from me and if I wasn't using it to type this review, I wouldn't know it was on. Silent, clean.

Cons: The installation process was baffling to me. The thing is, it's easy once you know *how* to install it, but I couldn't make heads or tails out of the instruction manual. I looked it up on youtube, then I felt silly. Save yourself some pain and do the same. It was trivial to install once I saw it done.

Pros: Rock solid. Feels good right out of the box. Like a fool I was so excited to install the thing that I forgot to check under the box for all of the cool extras (like the back cover) in there, so I had to uninstall / reinstall. It all couldn't have been easier. High quality, had everything I needed. It was a breeze. The boot screen is really nice too. I may be old - it's been 5 years since I made my last computer, but I was impressed by how nice the experience was.

Cons: I'm taking off three eggs because the coupon I was given for Batman Arkham Asylum did not work. The website told me that the code was either wrong or in use. I checked the code a dozen times, reentered it half as many in different ways (with or without dashes, obeying caps, changing the Os to zeros etc). Nothing. That's pretty lame. I know I'm buying a motherboard here and not a game, but that game factored into how good a "deal" this was, and I had expected to use it to give my new system a run through its paces. I probably won't do another one of these "free" game deals again.

Pros: Beautiful screen. Much more imposing in person - 27 inches is really big. Great blacks, great whites. Very nice.

Cons: The viewing angle is slightly disappointing. I can see a difference when I move my head a few feet around. I can still read text, but the colors change. For that, I took off an egg.
