Most Favorable Review

Excellent

Patriot Viper 4GB (2 x 2GB) DDR2 800 (PC2 6400) Dual Channel Kit Desktop Memory Model PVS24G6400LLKN
Patriot Viper 4GB (2 x 2GB) DDR2 800 (PC2 6400) Dual Channel Kit Desktop Memory Model PVS24G6400LLKN

Pros: The RAM works great, and looks even more amazing. You may need to update timing in bios, or check when installing - however no biggy.

Cons: None.

Overall Review: Would recommend.

Most Critical Review

Purchased 2

MSI 870U-G55 AM3 AMD 770 USB 3.0 ATX AMD Motherboard
MSI 870U-G55 AM3 AMD 770 USB 3.0 ATX AMD Motherboard

Pros: Purchased 2 of these boards for 2 new systems. Lots of features, high-quality parts from the looks of it.

Cons: 1 worked perfectly. 1 came doa.

Overall Review: Not sure if it's a hit and miss with this certain motherboard. From the other reviews, seems it's a 50/50 chance on getting a board that has some issue. Sent in an RMA, will have replacement (same board) in 3 days. Will check back on the 3rd board.

GPU needs to be installed before you can claim

AMD Gift
AMD Gift

Pros: None

Cons: Received the gift when purchasing a RX 580. Come to find out you are required to have the GPU installed before you can even claim the games. Email into support and they'll just continue to reply back with a canned "clearly mentioned in the terms of service found here" response, though nowhere on the page is the terms mentioned and that the card itself needs to be installed.

Overall Review: Been a longtime AMD fanatic, but this is a new low for them.

Top notch for SSD

SanDisk Ultra II 2.5" 480GB SATA III Internal Solid State Drive (SSD) SDSSDHII-480G-G25
SanDisk Ultra II 2.5" 480GB SATA III Internal Solid State Drive (SSD) SDSSDHII-480G-G25

Pros: Own several so far and use them for gaming, video rendering, and everything else. If you've been looking for a decent capacity SSD drive, look no further. Exceptional drives, and more importantly reliable. Haven't had any issues yet (knocks on wood).

Cons: None

Overall Review: Be aware you only receive the SSD drive, no further accessories (this is normal, most don't). So if you don't have an SSD mounting bracket available in your case, I'd recommend buying one.. they are cheap.

x2 Purchases - First Impressions

CORSAIR Hydro Series H100i Extreme Performance Water/Liquid CPU Cooler. 240mm
CORSAIR Hydro Series H100i Extreme Performance Water/Liquid CPU Cooler. 240mm

Pros: Have not actually used the product just yet, however the material seems to be of high quality. The hoses are a bit stiff, and worked best when mounted on top.

Cons: Did not include a proper Y connector to connect fans to the power block. Ordered two of these, one for the new system and one for my old system and both had incorrect Y connectors.

Overall Review: Disappointed thus far. Building a new system for a friend, and everything went smoothly up until this point. First I thought I misplaced the proper cord so I opened the second H100i that I bought and it had the same issue. Will update on performance with both systems, once I can actually get them properly hooked up.

Perfect Headset

Logitech Wireless Gaming Headset G930 with 7.1 Surround Sound, Wireless Headphones with Microphone
Logitech Wireless Gaming Headset G930 with 7.1 Surround Sound, Wireless Headphones with Microphone

Pros: I debated on purchasing this headset for over 2 weeks. Was skeptical on the actual sound quality, due to it having wireless. Normally for one feature, you give up another. With this headset, that does not apply. *AMAZING Sound Quality. I've had people over and of course they want to check them out. Every time, people are amazed. *WIRELESS. No cord is like a gamers dream, or anyones in that case. Seriously. I always had problems with cords getting insanely twisted, drive me to purchase a new one. Not anymore. *BATTERY LIFE. I listen to music LOUD, even when playing games. They last anywhere from 8 to 12 hours depending on how high you have them. Cord doesn't get in the way when charging and using either. *QUALITY. Can't be the quality. They are a bit heavy, but honestly when wearing you won't even notice. Plenty of comfort. You get the best of all worlds with this. No joke.

Cons: None.

Overall Review: Honestly, if your in the cross roads on should I splurge and get this, just get it and don't worry about the cost. You get what you pay for. This is serioiusly a treat to anyone. The sound is awesome, high quality bass (yes it thumps but sweet sounds.
