Probably the GOAT of computer case in this price range

Fractal Design Meshify C White - White Steel / Tempered Glass ATX Mid Tower High-Airflow Compact Clear Tempered Glass Computer Case
Fractal Design Meshify C White - White Steel / Tempered Glass ATX Mid Tower High-Airflow Compact Clear Tempered Glass Computer Case

Pros: Amazing airflow throughout. some of the easiest cable management I've worked with. Plenty of backspace to route your wires accordingly. The rest is personal taste but the glass panel and the PSU cover section just make this case look insanely clean. It's easy to take the front panel apart when installing additional fans or water cooler. Plenty of spare screws, and solid construction, and perfect finish.

Cons: My only struggle with this case was due to my own mistake picking my water cooler. I really wanted it to be sitting on top pushing the heat out, but due to the fact that the mobo sits pretty high and I used Corsair RGB ram, I could not fit the fan on the water cooler. I really should have measured everything properly instead of eyeballing measurements. I ended up mounting it on the front face so now it's pulling the heat from the cooler through my case. It's no big deal because as I mentioned the airflow in this thing is amazing, but it makes it a little bit less efficient. Regardless, my workstation still holds a steady 36c idling and barely goes over 55c gaming, so I am extremely pleased.

Overall Review: I would buy this case in a heartbeat for any build. The time you save yourself in the installation by picking this case is so worth it. I used to be a corsair guy but this has converted me lol.

Do not waste your cash

NETGEAR WNA1100-100ENS N150  Wireless Adapter IEEE 802.11b/g/n USB 2.0 Up to 150Mbps Wireless Data Rates
NETGEAR WNA1100-100ENS N150 Wireless Adapter IEEE 802.11b/g/n USB 2.0 Up to 150Mbps Wireless Data Rates

Pros: Well, it works...

Cons: The speeds I experienced with this adapter are just pathetic. My computer is 4ft away fro my router and I cannot get speeds higher than 200kb/s while my Acer Aspire One gets an average of 600-800kb/s 20ft away through concrete walls. I would not recommend this to anybody and would definitely spend the money on... pretty much anything else but that.

Overall Review: My main use for this was to stream videos and browse the internet. It was slow in both cases.

Almost 2 years in, and still kicking

MSI PRO Z490-A PRO LGA 1200 Intel Z490 SATA 6Gb/s ATX Intel Motherboard
MSI PRO Z490-A PRO LGA 1200 Intel Z490 SATA 6Gb/s ATX Intel Motherboard

Pros: -easy to work with BIOS -works flawlessly with 10th gen, and 11th gen Intel (with updated BIOS) -No gimmicky stuff, straight to the point

Cons: -Only one Nvme heatsink was supplied, but two slots are available. No big deal but it would have been nice to have two.

Overall Review: I'm almost two years into this board, originally built it with a 2060 and 10400. Then upgraded the BIOS to switch to a 11700K, moved to a 2080Ti. This board has surpassed my expectations so far. I wanted to build something that could withstand time a little better than others and so far this board has done just that. I'm still running everything in PCIe Gen3 until I end up moving to a 30 series RTX, but so far my performances are really good. The "memory try it" feature of the BIOS is pretty good. I'm currently running the unit overclocked at 4.9Ghz on all cores with a 200 core boost on the 2080Ti and 32Gb of 3200mhz Corsair vengeance pro on XMP1. No blue screen or crash in the two years I've had this board. It's solid, it does the job, it's reliable, it's priced well, and you get constant BIOS support from MSI. definitely a good buy.

Great Card for Mid-Range Gaming

EVGA GeForce RTX 2060 SC Ultra GAMING, 06G-P4-2067-KR, 6GB GDDR6, Dual HDB Fans
EVGA GeForce RTX 2060 SC Ultra GAMING, 06G-P4-2067-KR, 6GB GDDR6, Dual HDB Fans

Pros: very quiet runs relatively cool under load EVGA software makes it easy to overclock Ray-Tracing is a plus, but don't go enable it on all your games, this card has its limit!

Cons: It won't make me a sandwich Can't run Ray-Tracing in Warzone, but who cares, look at those frames.

Overall Review: A great bang for your buck. I will be upgrading my second PC with one sooner than later. My specs: i5 10400 Corsair Vengeance DDR4 3200 Fractal Meshify-C Enermax Aquafusion 240 The card fits well in there, see photo

Great cooler, need to update the hardware though

Enermax AQUAFUSION 240 ARGB White, All-in-one CPU Liquid Cooler for AM4 & AM5 / LGA 1700/1200/1151, 240mm Radiator, Dual-Chamber Water Block, SquaA RGB Fan - AM5 & LGA1700 Compatible
Enermax AQUAFUSION 240 ARGB White, All-in-one CPU Liquid Cooler for AM4 & AM5 / LGA 1700/1200/1151, 240mm Radiator, Dual-Chamber Water Block, SquaA RGB Fan - AM5 & LGA1700 Compatible

Pros: Efficient cooler. Keeps my CPU at 36c idle and doesn't break 55c gaming. Fans are quiet and the RGB ring produces a nicely diffused and consistent light. RGB works perfectly with my mobo RGB controller and app. White is not as common for water cooler so if you do a themed build it will be right at home in your case. The price point is really good considering corsair coolers prices have inflated quite a bit in my opinion.

Cons: So this where the let down was for me. I almost knocked two eggs but I ended up fixing my issue easily. I run this on an MSI Z490-A Pro with an i5 10400, that's the LGA1200 socket. Newegg does say this cooler is compatible with the 1200 socket, however, the manual makes no reference to it. I did a quick fit check and everything lined up as it should so I proceeded with the install. Once it was time to put the spring-loaded nuts, there was no way that I could install all four without putting an excessive amount of load on the CPU. The nut would not even engage on the back screws. Luckily for me, I was able to remove the springs off the nuts with some pliers. Once done, I was able to finish my install. I would suggest Enermax to either revise the length of the back screws to be at least 5mm longer, or go with a much softer spring, or do away with the spring altogether. Now with that said, the manual doesn't mention the LGA1200 as part of the compatible sockets, so maybe Newegg needs to revise that as well. Either way, I made it work, and it works well so no beef with either party, just a little more work than what I bargained for. The other thing I think should be revised are the screws for the brackets on the sides of the CPU block. The screws provided are somewhat self-tapping when really they should be machined screws. The force you have to apply to fully set those screws is likely to either damage the screw head or worse, make you slip and damage the plastic shroud of the CPU block. I would suggest using some M3 or M4 socket head cap screws to remedy that, and pre tap the plastic or install helicoils in the CPU block.

Overall Review: Despite what I went through during install, I would still buy it again. It's an efficient and stylish water cooling system that delivers great performance. I really like the look and performance. However, as much as I love this cooler, I could not give it 5 eggs.

Great lower budget RGB fan pack

Cooler Master SickleFlow 120 V2 Addressable RGB 3 in 1 Square Frame Fan, Individually Customizable LEDS, Air Balance Curve Blade Design, Sealed Bearing, PWM Control for Computer Case & Liquid Radiator
Cooler Master SickleFlow 120 V2 Addressable RGB 3 in 1 Square Frame Fan, Individually Customizable LEDS, Air Balance Curve Blade Design, Sealed Bearing, PWM Control for Computer Case & Liquid Radiator

Pros: Work flawlessly with my MSI mobo and the jrainbow and jrgb control and Dragon Center. They are really bright which is what I wanted. Nice color diffusion through the blades. I was expecting them to be on the cheap side when it comes to construction but they feel pretty robust. The airflow is really good. Easy to wire to the RGB bus on the mobo since they can be plugged in series. Definitely a good bang for your buck when doing a build on a budget.

Cons: The only reason I docked an egg off is that I do get a weird intermittent vibration noise from one of them on top of my fractal meshify case. It's quite faint, but it's just loud enough that it bugs me if I'm not using my headset. I took it apart to check for clearance with the case and everything is fine. The clearance between the fan frame and the fan blade is fine as well. I just hope it's not one of the bearings that's defective from the box. Also, I only seem to hear it at low rpm so when gaming or doing other intensive tasks it's basically gone. maybe the blade is slightly out of balance at low rpm and creates some sort of harmonic vibration.

Overall Review: I'm definitely not disappointed with my purchase. I've used cooler master for CPU coolers before but never for case fans and I'm happy with what I got for my money. They look pretty bling and compliment my build as expected. I really hope this intermittent vibration is not going to haunt me later on. Bottom line is, I would definitely buy again for any RGB build just because it's the best price/value point out there.
