Pioneer Black 12X BD-R 2X BD-RE 16X DVD+R 5X DVD-RAM 8X BD-ROM 4MB Cache SATA Blu-ray Disc/DVD/CD Writer BDR-205BKS

Pros: This thing works great as expected... I have backed up about ten of my original Blu Ray movies so far... Now I can rest assured that I wont ruin them....Ill play my copies only.. They are expensive lol.. I burn onto Verbatim BD-R 25gb... Alot cheaper on here... Also you can use the new LTH media... Verbatim BD-R LTH media is manufactured with an organic dye that turns the disc’s reflectivity during recording from “low to high”. Other BD-R discs use the “high to low” recording method. Additionally, BD-R LTH is manufactured on converted CD-R/DVD-R production lines, which utilize a spin coating process and allow excess materials to be recycled.

Cons: Expensive, lol.. But so was DVD burners back in the day... You want to keep up with ever-changing technology you have to pay the prices....

Other Thoughts: I have copied a Blu-Ray using DVDfab hd decrypter, only to find out that during playback I have a little jitter between some scenes... I would suggest using BD-Rebuilder, just google it....BD-Rebuilder is free and works great, once you download the necessary software to make it work...It takes your BD-50 Dual layer movie and will compress it to fit onto a BD-25, BD-9 or BD-5... (BD-5 and BD-9 are both regular DVD's burned with a BDMV movie structure{only playable on a Blu-Ray player or PC})... I would suggest IMGBurn to burn your images as well. Its FREE and IMO better than NERO for DVD or Blu-Ray burning...

AMD Phenom II X4 965 Black Edition Deneb Quad-Core 3.4 GHz Socket AM3 125W HDZ965FBGMBOX Processor

  • neweggOwned For: 1 week to 1 month

Pros: Ok this thing is fast.... I am running this at 3.84 Mhz OC on water cooling... My temps idle are load im at 35c
No problems getting this thing overclocked, I would recommend a better cooler than stock.. That things kinda

The Corsair H-50 does a nice job of keeping this thing cool.

My setup:
Antec Nine Hundred case
AMD Phenom II 965 BE @ 3.75 Ghz OC
ASRock M3A785GXH/128M
Corsair H-50 CPU Water Cooling
4 GB OCZ Reaper 1600 7-7-7-24 2T Unganged
XFX HD-577A-ZNFC 5770 Video card
OCZ Vertex 60 gb SSD (System)
Hitachi 1TB 7200 HDD (Data)
Windows 7 Ultimate 64 bit

Cons: Doesnt make me

Other Thoughts: I would definitely buy this, alot cheaper than i7..
I'm more of an AMD guy anyway....
AMD has done a gret job with this processor....Looking forward to seeing what they will be coming out with in the future....
Maybe 6 or possibly 8 core processors? Hmmmmmm

OCZ Reaper HPC 4GB (2 x 2GB) 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM DDR3 1600 (PC3 12800) Dual Channel Kit Desktop Memory Model OCZ3RPR16004GK

Pros: This Ram works great at the 7-7-7-24 2T speeds 1600Mhz.
My Windows 7 WEI score is 7.8 with this RAM....
Im using just this set
My Setup:
Antec Nine Hundred case
AMD Phenom II 965 BE (C3) @ 3.84 Ghz OC
ASRock M3A785GXH/128M
Corsair H-50 CPU Water Cooling
4 GB OCZ Reaper 1600 7-7-7-24 2T Ganged
XFX HD-577A-ZNFC 5770 Video card
OCZ Vertex 60 gb SSD (System)
Hitachi 1TB 7200 HDD (Data)
Windows 7 x64

Cons: Ok its runs great if your lucky to get a good set of RAM... I have bought a total of 3 sets of these.. All had problems under Memtest... The last set had 151 errors running at 8-8-8-24 1333....

OCZ has been great at helping me troubleshoot and RMA my first set of ram.... My replacement RAM came directly from Taiwan and its running GREAT now....

If you run into problems OCZ will be more than willing to help.. Dont expect a quick response or quick RMA... It takes about a day later after you post a question on their Forum...

Other Thoughts: Like I said great RAM if you get a set that runs without errors under Memtest....

My other build is gonna change from this ram to Gskill...

Some people have had better luck with Gskill over OCZ....

Ill stick with this for now as its running great RIGHT NOW.....
