Most Favorable Review

Usen for Audio interface.

Rosewill RC-504 - PCIe FireWire 1394a Card - 2 + 1-Port (Two External + One Internal)
Rosewill RC-504 - PCIe FireWire 1394a Card - 2 + 1-Port (Two External + One Internal)

Pros: The. Motherboard I purchased didn't have on board firewire and that is a necessity for me since I use a firewire audio interface: Focusrite Saffire Pro 24. This allows me to eliminate a lot of that horrible computer noise during gaming and audio editing. It is immediately recognized in the device manager and I was easily able to plug and play. I have the Asus X79 Deluxe motherboard running Windows 8.1.

Cons: No cons other than it takes up a slot. But it's slim and out of the way.

Most Critical Review

Sleek but RAW

SteelSeries Sensei RAW 62155 Rubberized Black 8 Buttons 1 x Wheel USB Wired Laser 5670 dpi Gaming Mouse
SteelSeries Sensei RAW 62155 Rubberized Black 8 Buttons 1 x Wheel USB Wired Laser 5670 dpi Gaming Mouse

Pros: I chose this mouse because of the sleek, simple design but wanted quality construction. It is lightweight and has a mildly rubbery texture that fits the matte black finish. The software allows you to adjust the pulsation rate and brightness of the white LEDs. The mouse is very precise and allows you to build different profiles within the software. The cable is braided and very long so it's built to last.

Cons: The side buttons can be a little difficult to press in but I don't use them often. I do wish it came with weights for those who prefer a heavier mouse. The software is easy to use but kind of clunky.

Fast and Sleek.

Intel 335 Series Jay Crest SSDSC2CT180A4K5 2.5" 180GB SATA III MLC Internal Solid State Drive (SSD) - Retail

Pros: Bought this SSD for my first build and installation was easy. Easy to install Windows 8. Applications load promptly. I did make the mistake of getting 180 GB though. If this is your boot drive, make the bump in size.

Cons: None I The 120+ days of ownership.

Love It

Pros: Solid construction and modular! Came with all the necessary items to get started and a handy bag with all the cables. Colorfully lit and quieter than I was expecting. No troubles installing and looks great. This is a reliable piece of equipment.

Cons: I do wish the colors were customizable. All the ports are fixed colors. I'd you're looking for a particular color scheme, I would fine a different power supply.

Just What You Need

Pros: I notice some people calling this loud and it really isn't. It is an optical drive so expect some noise but I don't see it bothering anyone unless you need to work in absolute silence.

Cons: None.

Does The Job

CORSAIR Hydro Series H60 (CW-9060007-WW) High Performance Water / Liquid CPU Cooler. 120mm
CORSAIR Hydro Series H60 (CW-9060007-WW) High Performance Water / Liquid CPU Cooler. 120mm

Pros: CPU: Intel i7-4820k Quad Core LGA 2011 This is a well built water cooler with a fairly silent fan. Keeps my CPU at reasonable levels. The installation was easy. For a CPU that runs a lighter load than mine, you will find this to be an excellent piece of gear.

Cons: No complaints as of late.
