Great Case

Antec Lanboy air Blue Black / Blue ATX Mid Tower Computer Modular Case
Antec Lanboy air Blue Black / Blue ATX Mid Tower Computer Modular Case

Pros: I can hardly say anything bad about this case. really its fantastic. -super nice finish -plenty of screws and things to hook everything up -very open -easy to run wires -customization -Cools.....well. I wouldn't say exceptionally -durable/handles/fans/lights/blue -also like to mention that IT LOOKS AMAZING!

Cons: There are however a couple of unfortunate faults. Not egg worthy. -hard to close panels after it is fully built. Even if you are a cable management wiz. -Fans are not silent by any means. especially when you tie up the fan power cables only to start hearing them get shredded by the fans (fixable) -Price...of course I went with a blue themed build...but why do I pay $60 more than the yellow case? I am assuming sales numbers -Somewhat heavy for its smaller size -of course the size

Overall Review: This is not really a con but more of an error on my fault. I had seen and heard that it is somewhat small, but also spacious for a mid tower. I did my research on what I could truly fit inside this case. I did however have some issues with things either barely fitting or cause troubles with the panels fitting properly. This is mostly due to my specs.: MSI 990FX mobo 16 GB ddr3 1600 mhz corsair vengeance AMD Phenom II 955 3.2Ghz PNY GTX 580XLR8 Liquid gpu+CPU cooling(tubes fit tight) 60 Gb Corsair SSD 1 Tb seagate 7200 Kingwin Mach 1 1220 watt psu The biggest issue was obviously the video card. I could still easily fit a second. But it clears the center bar of the case by barely anything. Practically touching. The water cooling hoses barely fit with the side panel on without kinking. Thankfully. This is all me, not the case. As a second other thought. I do not like the new look of Newegg. The shop thing is fine, But the search is frustrating.

Most Critical Review

Great monitor base

ASUS TUF Gaming VG24VQ 24" (23.6" Viewable) Full HD 1920 x 1080 1ms MPRT 144Hz 2 x HDMI, DisplayPort AMD FreeSync Asus Eye Care with Ultra Low-Blue Light & Flicker-Free Backlit LED Height Adjustable Curved Gaming Monitor
ASUS TUF Gaming VG24VQ 24" (23.6" Viewable) Full HD 1920 x 1080 1ms MPRT 144Hz 2 x HDMI, DisplayPort AMD FreeSync Asus Eye Care with Ultra Low-Blue Light & Flicker-Free Backlit LED Height Adjustable Curved Gaming Monitor

Pros: Great adjustable stand

Cons: -Flickering with free sync on -icc profile required -power issues ultimately leading to some type of failure

Overall Review: It's possible that I just had a fluke monitor considering everyone has reviewed this monitor highly. When I enabled free sync in any game I got flickering on this display when others had worked fine. I came home from work today and the power button did nothing. I've tried different outlets but the power light isn't lit up no matter what I try. I had found there were times it would take many attempts to power it up before this happened. I'd troubleshoot the power but it's an odd power adapter that I can't seem to find it outside of sketchy websites and a certain popular auction website. I would like to mention I purchased this monitor November 2020 (manufactured Sept 2020) and it is no longer working February 2022.

Great Cable!

Pros: Works for my Astro A40s and my PS4 great quality

Cons: If I charge my controller with this cable plugged in there is feedback that my friends in chat can hear. But..this is on my A40s. Probably not the case on TurtleBeach headsets.

Overall Review: Glad new egg had this in stock. Most places did not, keep it up. :)

Why Corsair?

Corsair Nova Series 2 2.5" 60GB SATA II Internal Solid State Drive (SSD) CSSD-V60GB2
Corsair Nova Series 2 2.5" 60GB SATA II Internal Solid State Drive (SSD) CSSD-V60GB2

Pros: -price -size -Corsair -Looks nice

Cons: I have had this drive for roughly 3 weeks. I installed windows to this drive. I had always heard about SSD's booting up the OS super fast. This is actually slower than my 6/gbs TB drive. It seemed to be unstable, with random slowdowns during installations. I installed to my TB drive and now the SSD doesn't even show up in disk management. I am sure there is a work around but...why?

Overall Review: I would have returned it to get my money back. But guess what...you can't do that. I would have even put this money towards a higher quality drive FROM CORSAIR. But no, I lost my money and I guess I have to try to pretend the little box in my case is doing something. I would never buy this SSD again, but I will always recommend other Corsair products to friends. :) BTW my 16GB of Vengence more than makes up for this!

Broken

ARCTIC Alpine 64 Pro Rev. 2 CPU Cooler - AMD, Supports Multiple Sockets 92mm PWM Fan at 23dBA
ARCTIC Alpine 64 Pro Rev. 2 CPU Cooler - AMD, Supports Multiple Sockets 92mm PWM Fan at 23dBA

Pros: It is Arctic Cooling. That's why 2 eggs. Never had problems with their products in the past, so I'll take it easy on them.

Cons: When I opened the box and pulled the cooler out, I noticed 2 tiny black pieces of plastic sitting in the bottom of the box. I later realized these were the clips that hold the right side of the fan to the cooler....so yeah. But it kinda stayed on, plus with the clips attached to the motherboard I figured it would be a big deal. Then I powered on the system once it was completely built, and the fan spun for about 15 seconds then stopped. I wondered if maybe it was just power, but I installed the stock cooler and that little dinky fan has been running like a champ.

Overall Review: Like I said, Arctic Cooling is not known to make junk, so I give them a little slack on this defective cooler. I'll purchase their products again, it is just too bad I had to have a bad experience with them :,(

Very Satisfied

Cooler Master NotePal U2 - Laptop Cooling Pad with Dual 80 mm Configurable Fans
Cooler Master NotePal U2 - Laptop Cooling Pad with Dual 80 mm Configurable Fans

Pros: -Modular fans -Large -Low price The ratio of price to quality still amazes me. I have seen other bulky cooling pads for sale around $80 but this thing probably drops my temps. about 5 degrees. I notice a huge difference in my games, with and without this cooler. And I'm talking about 15 fps difference. The difference seems low, but you can tell after your games stop being choppy. The modular fans allow you to clip fans right onto the specific airflow points. Especially the ones going straight to your CPU and Video Chip. My laptop is a 15.6" But I'm sure even those of you with an 18" notebook could benefit from this cooler.

Cons: Really, the only con I have is that I tried to clean in but taking the feet off of it and accidentally ripped one of the pegs. But it still goes in correctly. But just fair warning. Besides my own stupidity, this cooler is perfect for any laptop.

Overall Review: My Lenovo y560 gets very hot. And fast. The i7 and HD5730 card have the cooling points next to each other. So I clip these on where they are needed, so rather than super hot, skin melting air coming out of the side exhaust it is just slightly cool air. I highly recommend this to anyone that owns a notebook. and for $18!!!!! Just try to find a better one for that price. And by a reputable manufacturer like Cooler Master. :)
