4.0 out of 5 stars Good SSD drive, 26 July 2013
Its good but not great, for the money there are better drives out there such as the 830/840 drives from samsung. in reality you probably would not detect the difference but if your in the market for new you may as well get the best your money can grab.

When setting the drive up think carefully about what you want to use the drive for, setting you downloads folder to a mech HDD will free up a lot of space and using apps like steam mover allows you to put just the games your currently playing onto the SSD making the most of your limited space.

In practice i have found this drive to be about the correct size for me as there is room for the OS my programs and a couple of games that i'm playing at any one time so unless you made of money or have a particular need i would stick to this size.

5.0 out of 5 stars Powerfull chip for....everything, 26 July 2013
Had this for over a year now and its still destroying anything i throw at it, its an easy OC to 4.6Ghz and runs stable and cool on air, people may wince at temps over 60degrees when benchmarking which is higher than sandy go to but you have to remember that the TJ Max on this chip is over 115 degrees which gives plenty of headroom even if your up to 80 in benchmarking. Remember that bencharking will provide the hottest temps you will ever see as it runs your chip at 100%, even the most demmanding aplications will only hit this for a few secconds here and there as they are limited by other factors.

If your not going to overclock don't buy the K version and dont waste money on a Z77/Z68 mobo when a H67/61 will give you all the features bar overclocking and save you a fair few quid.

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent small case, 26 July 2013
The front mounted USB3 ports offer good access for your pen sticks but you need to be carefull when removing the front so that you do not damage the wires.
The front fan filter requires cleaning around monthly and it is worth getting a set of thumb screws to allow you to get into the case eisier, if you dont clean out the filter it looks a bit naff and temps ten to rise by 10-20 degrees.

I'm running the 450W version of this with a Z77e-itx mobo 3770k (4.6Ghz) and 7850 (1150Mhz) and its stable cool and relativly quiet, there have been some people complane about the noise from small systems but this is generally down to the fact that you sit the box on your desk not under it so your closer to the noise source.

Installation in this case takes a bit of patience, planning and a couple of trial and error attempts, as the space is so small it can be hard to get all the cables into the case without restricting airflow but it can be done.

Using the NT06-E cooler also allows you to use the fan in the PSU as youCPU cooling fan further reducing the overall noise in the case.

All in all its an excellent case into which you can pack a powerfull system thats transportable (have taken it on the road a number of times)my only complaint would be access to the filter is a pain as you have to remove the case and the front pannel but its still only a 2 min job to clean the filter.

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent compact gamining case, 26 July 2013
This is the smallest you can go and still fit a high en dual slot GPU, the supplied 450W PSU is very good quality and is happyly running my 3770k and 7850 both significantly overclocked.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great cooler for Z77e-itx, 26 July 2013
This cooler is designed to work allong side the Sugo series of cases, you can use the fan in the PSU to extract air through the cooler so you can have one less fan in your case. I'm currently using this to cool an I7 3770k clocked at 4.6Ghz using this configuration with the Z77e-itx mobo, this board has a notoriously tight gap betweek cooler and GPU but this cooler fits with 3-5mm gap.

This is one of the best performing coolers i have come across and its fanless opperation also makes it one of the quietest.

PS. you can also mount an additional fan which may be required if your running a chip with a higher TPD (mine is 77W), also you can invert the black cover to let you mount a fan under the cooler to keep the height down.

Edit: i paid £25 for this so shop around.

5.0 out of 5 stars Good price, great features, 26 July 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This is by far the best keyboard at this price point, it has a wide aray of features and the backlight is strong without causing glare in the dark. the macro keys hold a suitable ammount of characthers to get the job done as well.

I've not seen any keyboards under £70 that provide more than this one, its also quite good for typing.

If you suffer from dry hands these are a great product, moisturise liberally and then put the gloves on before going to bed and you will wake up with lovely moist hands, no seepage from the gloves either.

4.0 out of 5 stars Good range of motion, 26 July 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Good motion and the software allows the additional buttons to be set up to perform more functions, it is however a little light and would benifit from suction feet to hold it in place.

4.0 out of 5 stars Good mouse, 26 July 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This is a solid mouse with good features, the software is easy to set up as well, if your planning on using the extra buttons in games you bind the putton to the keyboard command directly so for instance if you wanted a button to throw a grenade you bind it to G. a lack of adjustible weight is its only real flaw.
