This review is from: MASSCOOL Fanner-420 Thermal Grease
Pros: It's thermal grease, it's great, comes in a little syringe, easy to apply.
It helps keep my CPU cool.
and that's cool.
Cons: It's greasy. But what do you expect?
Other Thoughts: Of course, if you're building a computer, you need thermal grease, just in case the heat-sink you got for your CPU doesn't have it applied prior. So this is a more or less a necessity.READ FULL REVIEW
This review is from: Microsoft JR9-00011 Xbox 360 Wireless Controller for Windows
Pros: I bought this about two years ago when I built my gaming PC, and I've had no complaints about it. If your running windows 7, you're going to have to install the drivers, but running windows 8, 8.1, or 10, the drivers are pre-installed with the OS and will load right away.
You can connect any and all Xbox 360 wireless controllers with this receiver, making it so if your migrating from a Xbox gamer to being a PC Gamer, you can also migrate your controllers. This works great for LAN parties (Since there are some great games like Goat Simulator that support LAN play, as well as Sonic All Stars Racing that also supports LAN play), and for most games.
Almost all triple A titled games support Xbox 360 controller input, so you can just plug it in and go. If you think you'll miss the feel of a console you will be mistaken, since this allows you to play all your favorite games as if you were still playing an Xbox.
Another amazing thing is the range of this receiver. I live in a 2 story house with a basement, and my bed room and my desktop are on two opposite corners of the house, my desktop in the basement and my room on the 2nd floor. I have had this hooked up to my desktop while I streamed the video to a laptop, so I could play all my desktop games on my laptop, without any input lag. \
After 2 years of heavy use and travel, The only problem I've had is the cable broken, and it's only operational when put in a certain position. I'd say this is more of a pro, only because I've taken this thing on many vacations as well as when I traveled, so it's always hung from the cord (I knew then that it was bad, and I still know it is, but in those cases i didn't really have many places to put the receiver). This thing is definitely durable as hell.
Cons: This is more or less my fault, but more recently, the cable has become broken on the inside, so when the cable is in a certain position, the device disconnects. Again, i've used this for over 2 years, and i've taken it with me on vacation and on trips. It's been through a beating and lasted me a long time.
Other Thoughts: I highly recommend everyone buy this, especially if your used to a controller when it comes to gaming.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: I've been using this drive for over two years, and i'm still using it today. It runs just as good as it did when I bought it.
I also love the speed at which the drive transfers, with 6Gb/s, it reduces load times in games significantly.
Cons: If your planning on gaming in the future, get a hard drive with a bit more cache, just to keep things smoothly running.
Other Thoughts: I recommend getting a one to two terabyte hard drive, since you can get a Western Digital one for around the same price as this one. You may have to sacrifice speed and cache size, but the larger storage is definitely worth it. (In many cases, it's actually and upgrade in which you Don't have to sacrifice anything)READ FULL REVIEW
