ASUS P9X79 DELUXE LGA 2011 Intel X79 SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 ATX Intel Motherboard with UEFI BIOS
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: 1 month to 1 year

Pros: -Fast
-Not exceedingly expensive, considering what you get.
-It's Asus, I've yet to have a truly bad experience with their tech.

Cons: -Had a minor issue with posting during the first week where I would have to turn it off then power it up again, but an update in BIOS fixed the issue. (took me a week to find my way around a not-factory-installed OS...)

Other Thoughts: The only issue I've had with this board in over a month is the post I mentioned above, but again the BIOS update fixed that minor issue. Other than that, this motherboard has exceeded my expectations. Using an i7-3820 Sandy Bridge-E and I've yet to have any issues at all.

I would recommend this board to anyone who wants a good, powerful motherboard. With Wi-Fi built-in! Awesome!

CORSAIR Hydro Series H90 High Performance Water/Liquid CPU Cooler. 140mm
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: 1 month to 1 year

Pros: -Can't hear it. It's that quiet for me.
-Consistently cool CPU at 50. Might make it to 52 on a powerful load. (i7-3820 Sandy Bridge-E)
-Very simple to install, especially on a 2011 socket.

Cons: -Tubes don't like being bent excessively at first, but that could also be me being overly gentle with it.
-That's it.

Other Thoughts: Absolutely quiet. I used to play with a laptop on a coling pad that was warping, so it got noisy. Now that I've come out of the dark ages, the silence is sort of unnerving.
My CPU usually stays around 50-52 degrees when I'm running almost anything, and from what I understand the i7's can get pretty hot without CPU coolers, so I'm ecstatic about the silence and heat efficiency this has given me and my world!

Was extremely easy to install, even for someone like me who had never done a computer build in my life before this.

Overall, I'd recommend this or anything similar to anyone who needed a simple, easy-to-install CPU cooler.

Rosewill THOR V2-W White Edition, Gaming ATX Full Tower Computer Case - Supports Up to E-ATX / XL-ATX, Comes with Four Fans
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: 1 month to 1 year

Pros: Size
Space available
Cable management behind the opposite plate
Awesome lighting.
Air flow.
-Sheer amount of honeycomb vents is very useful.

Cons: Weight when built
Irreplaceable metal covers over the optical drive bays.

Other Thoughts: The Thor is exactly what I thought it would be: big, awesome and extremely heat efficient. My issue with the Thor is the weight, but that was also expected from a computer tower this size.

My alternate issue is the irreplaceable metal covers over the optical drive bays, behind the black mesh and dust filter that comes with it. This is a personal issue, however, as I do not really like things that I cannot undo.

Overall an excellent tower, has served me well the past month or more, and the HD activity light and power lights are very awesome to see active.
