Pros: I love the layout of this case. I was going to buy the f31, but wanted something a little more flashy, but not too flashy.
The tg panel is slightly tinted so if you want another color scheme that doesn't match your mobo, it still looks great.
-Solid feel, not flimsy
-Many options for radiator sizes.
-Lots of room in the back for cable management
-Great dust filters
Cons: Only minor gripes
-The lighting around the start button is only blue. (Seems silly for an rgb case)
-The fan controller has a bright blue light that also can't be changed.
Overall Review: All around great case.
Pros: -Very easy to use
-Great price, cheaper than most B350 MoBos
-Supports up to 3200 OC RAM
Cons: -Minor con, the board doesn't support many 3200 speed RAM kits. I have G.SKILL Ripjaws V Series 16GB (2 x 8GB) 3200 and it can only run at 2133. Though I knew this buying the board. So hopefully they keep rolling out the BIOS/UEFI updates.
Overall Review: Great product that beats out many other boards at the $100 price point.
Pros: -Fast CPU, low temps (Corsair H110i)
-Huge upgrade from my i5 750
-Very affordable 6 core 12 thread beast
-Bethesda is going to optimize for ryzen
-Same clock speeds as the 1800X
Cons: -Not a lot of OC room. :/ Though I knew that going into my purchase.
Overall Review: I have the corsair H110i which keeps my temps at ~26° idle and ~40 under load.
Pros: Seemed nice for a period, cheap-ish.
Cons: It lasted all of 7 months before crashing without warning.
I only booted up to that drive 3 times (Triple booted OS's on separate drives)
Overall Review: Shouldn't have gotten a refurb...
Pros: - Considering the price, a great laptop for the $290.
- Plays basic games pretty well like half life 2.
- Good little CPU and GPU for $290
Cons: - HDD is a little slow at 5400rpm. Downloading is limited because HDD is maxed out at 100%, but still runs fast enough.
- Mousepad doesn't work for a few seconds here and there, but works well enough on the go when you don't want to use an actual mouse.
Overall Review: - Cons just to make you aware, but for all intensive purposes it does everything I need it to do.
- Install "classic start shell" if you want it to operate more like win 7.
Pros: I love it so far. I can run programs in XP mode if need be, but 99% of the 32-bit XP programs work on Win 7 64-bit anyway. I didn't even need to install drivers for anything. The OS notices if you have something new in and installs the drivers for you, with permission of course. All of my programs also run faster than my 32-bit XP.
Cons: More than I wanted to pay, had better prices when it first came out...
Also the stock settings puts your computer to sleep mode if left for more than 30 minutes. A little annoying if you are downloading something. Though I just had to change it to "never" under "power options" on the control panel.
Overall Review: There's not much of a learning curve from XP to 7. If you can't find anything the search is actually useful on Win 7, unlike XP.
Pros: The single player, as always, is awesome. Treyarch is great at making intelligent AI that act like real humans. (While Infinity Ward makes them phycic in order to be better.)
The Multiplayer is what feels a bit weird, but still fun. They also have a cool training mode where you can face bots on four different difficulties.
Zombies feels the same as it did in COD5: WAW. All levels are very cool.
Cons: If you are looking for a Modern Warfare feeling game, this isn't it exactly. It feels a bit weird at first but it does get a bit addicting. It is like comparing Halo 2 to Halo 3, they aren't very similar.
Overall Review: They do have a rapid fire block in this game like COD5: WAW, but not as harsh. If you are shooting to fast, you simply won't shoot, but you don't get permanently mod blocked.
The USB modded gamertag also doesn't work.
Pros: Cool, real guns. Great graphics with lots of settings for different systems. Also comes with a benchmark tool!
I love open games that let you do practically whatever you want. If you love Bethesda games or Crysis, you will love this game. It also has a game editor like Bethesda's games and Crysis.
Cons: My only complaint is that you can't go up some of the mountains, there are barriers. Though there might be a way to take that off with the editor, not sure.
Overall Review: I play on max settings. Stats:
