APEVIA CF312S-BK 120 mm Case Fan (3-pk)
APEVIA CF312S-BK 120 mm Case Fan (3-pk)

Pros: They're great! I didn't think they were going to be that great at that price, but they actually are!

Cons: None yet.

Overall Review: I installed one of them on the back, one on the side and one on the top of my case. I had two other fans already (and still have a fan spot, but that's enough fans), and my computer is always running cold! Between 10°C and 25°C when idle and between 30°C and 45°C when intense gaming.

Most Critical Review

Somewhat good and bad.

Razer Naga MMO Gaming Mouse
Razer Naga MMO Gaming Mouse

Pros: - Many configurable buttons, - Feels good in the hand, - Glides wonderfully, - Wonderful in World of Warcraft.

Cons: When you pull it up a bit, it goes bananas, unlike my previous gaming mouse (which was from another brand). By this, I mean that when I lift it just a teeny tiny bit, the pointer moves in all directions. Naturally, as I usually put my little finger on the soft place (the plate on the right side of the mouse), it generates heat. With this heat, it makes the glue under that thing melt. When it melts, it leaks out. As it leaks out, it makes my little finger sticky. It isn't specifically nice. Another con would be that we need to have an account, so an internet connection, to do the first Razer Synapse configurations, and therefore use the mouse to its full potential.

Overall Review: This is a great mouse, but the leaking glue made me kind of mad. The "tiny" lifting problem annoys me quite a bit too, as it's becoming hard to be precise on certain things that require to be quite precise on several tasks as when using things such as image-editing softwares.

Cooler Master Elite 430 - Mid Tower Computer Case with All-Black Interior and Windowed Side Panel
Cooler Master Elite 430 - Mid Tower Computer Case with All-Black Interior and Windowed Side Panel

Pros: Great case, it's absolutely perfect for what I wanted to do. It also has a great airflow and I simply adore the style.

Cons: When I first put my motherboard on this case, I didn't notice it wouldn't fit because of the heatsink's back-plate. I didn't really look at the back-plate of the heatsink, so it squeezed it a little when I tried to screw the screws. When I opened it, it went up in smoke. When I noticed that, I felt really dumb. Anywho, it was getting a bit old anyway so I bought a new motherboard and it still had the same heatsink back-plate, so what I did is cut a bit more of that hole so the motherboard could actually fit. You might consider enlarging this hole just so things like that doesn't happen.

Pros: Don't listen to the ones who say it's clocked at 1600 MHz. All you have to do is check if BOTH your motherboard AND your processor is capable of handling the 1866 MHz speed. I'm using a M5A97 LE r2.0 motherboard and an FX-8350 processor, and all I had to do to make it run at 1866 MHz was to go in the bios and select "1866" instead of "1600". I used to have 10 GB of 1333 MHz RAM before, and I'm getting a little speed gain by using 8 GB of 1866 MHz RAM at the moment, maybe because the things I do usually doesn't add up more than 5-6ish GB of RAM, making this RAM perfect for me.

Cons: None yet.
