Pros: I've had this fan in my main gaming desktop for a little over a year and it works pretty well. As advertised, the case fan is practically silent - even at higher RPM. It has produces decent airflow, so I'm confident my computer is kept cool. The low cost of this fan is the cherry on top.
- practically silent
- decent airflow
- low cost
Cons: To reiterate, this case fan produces only decent airflow. If you're overclocking or your computer is in a very warm or hot environment, you may need to consider a more powerful case fan. For the price and noise level, the compromise is in the airflow.
- decent airflow
Pros: I've owned and used this SSD for a little over a year and I love it. My desktop computer starts and runs much faster. I will definitely not go back to using a disk drive to store/run my operating system. This particular SSD was the most affordable and wallet-friendly option at the time of purchase. I've never had a problem with it and would buy again for future computer builds.
- very affordable price
- reliable, never had a problem

Pros: I needed a budget Micro ATX AM3+ motherboard for my AMD FX-8350 and this was perfect. I'm a casual gamer, so I did not need anything enthusiast-level. My main components with this motherboard include: AMD FX-8350, MSI AMD Radeon 7790, one Crucial SSD (with AHCI enabled), and one Samsung HDD. I'm also running on Windows 8.1. I have had no problems with the software or hardware and everything seems to place nicely together. The BIOS is well-designed and has fairly advanced options; the main ones I tinkered with were to enable AHCI, adjust fan control, and adjust CPU power save. For those who will not be using a separate or third-party audio device, the onboard one is adequate. You don't get an equalizer like you do for Realtek devices, but the audio quality is good and handles various combinations of audio peripherals pretty well.
- good compatibility
- good BIOS
- adequate audio device & driver
Cons: I must say that you should only install the basic software needed to operate the motherboard: BIOS, audio, and LAN. I encountered boot problems when using the overclock software and their other installable "feature" applications are known to misbehave. Of course, always download the latest drivers from the manufacturer website.
- poor management and overclock software
