Most Favorable Review

Works great, no issues after 1.5 month.

ViewSonic XG2405 24 Inch 1080p 1ms 144Hz Frameless IPS Gaming Monitor with FreeSync Premium Eye Care Advanced Ergonomics Mode HDMI and DP for Esports
ViewSonic XG2405 24 Inch 1080p 1ms 144Hz Frameless IPS Gaming Monitor with FreeSync Premium Eye Care Advanced Ergonomics Mode HDMI and DP for Esports

Pros: - Color is great. - 144Hz refresh rate is smooth with little-to-no ghosting. - 90deg rotation is incredibly useful when reading vertically, editing/viewing portrait images, and coding. Only takes 10 secs to rotate it back to landscape when necessary. - No dead/stuck pixels on arrival. - Has a little earphone clip on back of stand (seldom use though)

Cons: - White color balance looks warm. Changing it using the built-in software doesn't really help. Though it's not noticeable unless you really focus on it. - Comes with an HDMI cable that supports 144Hz, but would've preferred if it came with DP since this is a secondary monitor and DP with HDMI don't always play nice. NOT AN ISSUE THOUGH. - Built-in software is not controllable via USB. Can only use buttons on the monitor to navigate.

Overall Review: Overall this monitor is great. Maybe a tad overpriced given it's 24" but relatively cheap for an IPS 144Hz display. Came with no defects and completes my 144Hz setup well as a secondary monitor.

Most Critical Review

Works for storing files but not for remaining as a boot drive.

Team Group 16GB C171 USB 2.0 Flash Drive (TC17116GB01)
Team Group 16GB C171 USB 2.0 Flash Drive (TC17116GB01)

Overall Review: I was using this drive to run as a boot drive for one of my linux servers and it CONSTANTLY fails. I flash it with linux and a day later the system fails and the drive becomes a full RAW partition. Can't even recover the data on it (luckily I back up my configs). If you were planning to get this as a boot drive, look elsewhere, else if you just want to use it for simple file storage then it's good enough for that, though I personally wouldn't keep files on their for long.

Shipped fast and works fine

Overall Review: Arrived quickly and without any noticeable damage and runs with no errors.

Didn't know what to expect but so far I'm pleasantly surprised.

Thermal Grizzly Conductonaut  CPU GPU Cooling Ultra High Performance Liquid Metal Compound Cooler Fan Thermal Grease/Paste -1 Gram
Thermal Grizzly Conductonaut CPU GPU Cooling Ultra High Performance Liquid Metal Compound Cooler Fan Thermal Grease/Paste -1 Gram

Overall Review: Venturing into the watercooling DIY I didn't think liquid metal would make much difference, people said it didn't really change the temps much and that regular thermal paste was fine. Well in my opinion now that I've tried it, liquid metal is fantastic! My average temp with regular paste was 54c at full GPU load while gaming. Sometimes though when it got hot because of sun or lack of A/C it would go up to 60c. This caused my overclock to become unstable because it was tuned to what was stable at 54c. With liquid metal however, my temp doesn't go above 47c at full load. A whole 7c difference and what's better is that the temp is even more stable, when it gets hot in my room the temp doesn't fluctuate and starts going higher. I don't think I'm ever going back to thermal paste when I watercool, this stability is just too good. Also there's way more liquid metal than I need. I already put it on my CPU and GPU and I still have plenty more to use elsewhere. Just be mindful you can't use this on aluminum or bare copper. It'll eat through them. Nickel is fine, it'll just discolor a little. Specs: 3900X (130W Full load) 2080 Ti (330W Full load) 240x30mm rad & 360x30mm rad

Works with Cougar Conquer case

Phanteks PH-VGPUKT_02 Universal Vertical GPU Bracket
Phanteks PH-VGPUKT_02 Universal Vertical GPU Bracket

Pros: - The vertical bracket fits perfectly and holds my 2080Ti with waterblock with no problem. - The PCIe 3.0 riser cable works with no issue or data loss and is easily replaceable when PCIe 4.0 comes out for next gen cards.

Cons: - Metal base holding GPU is a bit flimsy but nothing to worry about. - The whole setup blocks access to all other PCIe slots, but you should already know that before getting this. - Only supports 1 & 2-slot GPU cards. Doesn't affect me but is worth noting.

Overall Review: That other post about it not working with the COUGAR CONQUER case is false, at least for the model that I got - it works with my CC case just fine. You just need to bend the metal spokes that go into the case - the ones that provides support. Not by a lot just a little, no power tools needed, just hand strength.

Works and looks great but does have flaws.

DEEPCOOL Gamer Storm MF120S(3 in 1) 120mm ARGB Case Fan Cable Controller and Motherboard Sync Frameless and Two Layer Blower Blades Design
DEEPCOOL Gamer Storm MF120S(3 in 1) 120mm ARGB Case Fan Cable Controller and Motherboard Sync Frameless and Two Layer Blower Blades Design

Pros: - Looks fantastic; a unique design I personally like and comes with bright diffused LEDs that has hard-to-notice LED hotspots even in direct sunlight. - Definitely cools down my radiator as good as other brands can. - Does not feel cheap - Removed the LED on the logo so only the diffused strips are lit up.

Cons: - Cabling is messy. This model has 2 cables for each fan and requires 2 hubs; 1 cable & hub is for PWM/power and the other is for the ARGB. The cables have proprietary heads so you can't plug them into another hub unless you cut it and re-terminate it with regular headers. The hubs are small but overall this creates difficult cable management. Antec is able to do this all with a single hub and cable. - Noisy. It can reach up to 2000RPM but it'll get really noisy. It's not annoying but you can see where they sort of slacked in development. I have mine set to around 1650RPM. - Included screws not compatible with Corsair radiators; they're too thin. I cannot use their screws on my radiator and the screw that came with my radiator are not long or short enough to work since the fan mounting holes relative to the radiator holes are not at a universal level. I've been using random screws I've found laying around for the meantime - Software is lazy. It works and has many different modes and compatibility for software, it won't start from the top fan and move to the bottom fan, they all do the same animation at once. You cannot differentiate the order of each individual fan. A major flaw for a design as unique as this fan.

Overall Review: It's noisy, cables are messy, did not come with proper radiator screws, and the software is a tad lazy.... But it gets the job done and looks cool doing it, doesn't feel or look cheap either. My model is not wi-fi but rather cables and hubs, which is good and bad in its own way. If I could realistically ask the team that designed this for a change, it would be to make these fans dolly-chain-able. Instead of all these messy wires, just let me dolly chain the fans to one another. The ARGB doesn't respect fan order, so why not give us the feature to dolly-chain? Would make it much neater in my opinion.
