Like g-skill

G.SKILL PI Series 6GB (3 x 2GB) DDR3 1600 (PC3 12800) Desktop Memory Model F3-12800CL7T-6GBPI
G.SKILL PI Series 6GB (3 x 2GB) DDR3 1600 (PC3 12800) Desktop Memory Model F3-12800CL7T-6GBPI

Pros: the last ram I bought was g-skill and I got about 8gb of DDR2 ram. well, they worked and I would not have bought these ones If not for the simple fact that I am forced to upgrade to DDR3. I was able to recoupe some of the cost by selling my old ram (g-skill). quality skill you should call your self Q-Skill...

Cons: I wanted the pretty little blue heatsinks. (said in funny brittish accent) for these prices I ought to atleast be able to feel like I got my money's worth. Oh, well, I guess its back to eating ramen noodles.

Overall Review: couple this with a self clocking Mobo like giga-byte, you'll have more wings than a red bull. Too bad you wont be able to afford any red bull, its Crystal lite and ramen noodles after this build.

kensington Mouse

Kensington Pro Fit Full-Size Mouse K72369US Black 1 x Wheel USB Wired Optical 2400 dpi Mouse
Kensington Pro Fit Full-Size Mouse K72369US Black 1 x Wheel USB Wired Optical 2400 dpi Mouse

Pros: Full sized: I wear mens size XXL gloves. this mouse fits me perfectly. I like the variable speed button with 3 or 4 detentes to give a little variety. the thumb rest has a nice rubbery feel.

Cons: The only cons is that this thing has been downplayed. people think everything has to be $100 to be good. So, I felt worried...

Overall Review: My worries were gone after using this mouse for 2 seconds. Just a straight up wired mouse! I'm a graphic designer and I'm on my mouse all day... I will buy this mouse again.

good price good quality

GIGABYTE GA-H61M-S1 LGA 1155 Intel H61 Micro ATX Intel Motherboard
GIGABYTE GA-H61M-S1 LGA 1155 Intel H61 Micro ATX Intel Motherboard

Pros: Has all the things I like from the bigger cards ($$$). ie. -twice the copper -pci express 3.0 -FSB... or whatever the kids are calling it these days +++ good -oh yeah, Price is nice!

Cons: Missing one little connector, usb3.0, which is only my fault for not carefully inspecting the specs.

Overall Review: I made a ground up build for a cheap and fast PC. with SSD, I'm getting a boot time of 15-30 seconds. on board video card saved a little more money since I was building a fast machine for business use. My first build was 5 years ago, I used gigabyte MoBo, I liked how user friendly they were, so now I'm just hooked on GB Tech. In fact I'm typing this review on the first Monster PC I built. UDR3 mobo.

Nice! Clean power!

CyberPower Intelligent LCD UPS CP1350AVRLCD 1350 VA 815 Watts 10 Outlets UPS
CyberPower Intelligent LCD UPS CP1350AVRLCD 1350 VA 815 Watts 10 Outlets UPS

Pros: I retired from LANTIRN sensors. That means I know electronics, or at least swap-tronics now a days. This is a Voltage Regulator!!! Holey $#*&! It's a voltage regulator!!! Do you know what that means? Clean power. I have a large 650watt power supply running a full tower CPU, 23' monitor, with an additional 2 other 15' monitors, and speakers! This thing took it like a champ! will run all that for 19 minutes, with a very nice control panel software (disc included). Auto shut down configure it to wait a little or a lot. ---My speakers sound amazing on this! IT IS Amazing what clean power does for sound equipment! That is the power of a voltage regulator...

Cons: Wish I had this sooner!

Overall Review: I have Boston Acoustics speakers. They're getting old and starting to crackle a little. I used to keep the main speaker vol. at %50 because it would make a hisssssss if I turned it up full blast. I plugged the power into my CyberPower Voltage Regulator. %100 vol. NO hissssss!!! and don't even get me started at how good Music (Chevelle - The Red) sounds now!!! Good clean bass, and crisp highs. My speakers are about 12 yeas old, and they are transformed right before my very eyes. I'm getting another one!

Roomba Battery

Roomba Advanced Power System (APS) Battery # 4905
Roomba Advanced Power System (APS) Battery # 4905

Pros: Battery came with a bit of a charge. It's yellow. it works.

Cons: None yet!

Overall Review: I was worried my roomba was dead. I did not want to take apart the roomba and clean all the sensors. thankfully this battery make it vacuum again. It has spilled pop and then died in the kids room. Put the battery in it and now... Johnny 5 is alive!!!

I bought OEM one for 16 bucks!!

Thermaltake CLP0533 70mm 1 Ball Bearing CPU Cooler
Thermaltake CLP0533 70mm 1 Ball Bearing CPU Cooler

Pros: %100 this thing will move some air! And I coulpled this beefy fan and heatsink with my giga-byte x58 UD3R mobo. this mobo has stellar good software CD. and inside the Mobo software is a setting and all you have to do is drag the little scroll bar down to its lowest setting and the fan drops down to about 1,500 rpm's. At these speeds it's totaly quiet. I've got this thing cooling a peltier cooler and it keeps my i7 920 at about 37 deg C with an over clock of 2.9 ish

Cons: I will agree that yes at %100 this thing sounds like a portable hairdryer. (and it's not as pretty as those fancy dancy coper things) when powering up the software hasn't loaded yet and the fan just takes off at %100 untill the OS loads up and then my giga-byte easy tuner loads. At which point the fan immediatly calms down from about 6,000+ rpm way down to 1,500 ish. and plastic screw's? ick... but I had some older beefy screws that I've cannabalized from my other broken HP. But I know that when I bought it I was going to do that. after all thats why it's called A CUSTOM BUILD!!!

Overall Review: This is a bargain! Get it! Just the type of bargain I was looking for. Even with my peltier against this heatsink, it rarely feels even slightly warm, and the fan runs slow and quiet, but you have to have some sort of software to make it run slower, other wise
