There's a lot of functionality with this motherboard. For its price it gives a lot in return compared to the top high end motherboards. I definitely recommend this for PC enthusiasts like me.

5.0 out of 5 stars A brilliant must see film., 24 Feb 2014

By far in my opinion this is the best marvel film I have seen. The action in this movie is unique and the slight inclusion of comedy just makes this perfect.

5.0 out of 5 stars Classic, 24 Feb 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This game is one of my favorites of all time. Just hearing the start up music brings back memories and a sense of nostalgia. As for the game play it feels very well designed for the time. If you have the skills to be able to get old games working on modern systems I definitely recommend this to you!

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent monitor, 24 Feb 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This monitor by far excels most monitors I have seen and used in the past. It has a good quality picture and colour which an IPS should. The glare/glossy screen gives colours that extra boost making games and movies feel much more immersive. The build quality of the monitor is decent (It's very strong and sturdy). The only downside to the build of the monitor is the lack of wall mounting capability. The 3D on this monitor is acceptable it was better then I expected and can sometime be cool to use however it isn't the best I have seen. (But for a passive 3D monitor this is good) Furthermore the size of the monitor is brilliant and is a bargain for the quality of monitor compared to the price.

Sub ratings:

Screen quality: 10/10
Colour quality: 10/10 (Especially because of the reflective glossy screen)
Build quality: 9/10
Functionality of buttons: 7/10
3D: 6.5/10
Overall 9.5/10

I will not rate the sound as I have not tested it properly however monitor sound is never brilliant so I do still suggest some external speakers. Definitely don't miss out on this monitor you wouldn't regret buying it!

5.0 out of 5 stars Great Tower!, 5 Aug 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This tower first of all looks great. The plastic parts seem to be acceptable quality for the price and no part of the tower seems flimsy. Also different to the picture the side panel has mounts for other types of fans as I have noticed more rubber holes for anti vibration.

Pros;
-Great colour sceme and tone.
-Large case suitable for enthusiasts or people who require a large amount of space as this seem bigger than thought.
-Plenty of space for cooling fans to be added.
-Is easy to move with the use of the included wheels and is fairly light compared to what it seems.
-Fulfils almost any needs you may require in a tower.

Cons;
-Side panels are slightly annoying to put on however they are easy to remove.
-Takes up a very large amount of space!

Overall:
I recommend this to anyone who is a big fan of constructing computers or just purely needs the space components. My rating for this tower is 4.9 out of 5. (Not a full 5 due to the annoying job of putting the side panel back on).


Xilence Fan Controller 9.9 cm (3.5 Inch) Red
Xilence Fan Controller 9.9 cm (3.5 Inch) Red

4.0 out of 5 stars Very good and small fan controller, 16 Mar 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This worked great with controlling both my molex and 3 pin fans. Although there where some differences as shown and described. The first fan switch is for the CPU fan, but this can still be used for any other fan aswell but the downside is that it only lets you turn to minimun, Not off unlike the other to switches which you can. So if you have a fan linked up to that switch it will not fully turn off but will still go to minimun speed that makes the fan silent anyways. Overall I'll say this is a good fan controller but does not fully meet the description.
