Size Matters.

ZOTAC GeForce GTX 1060 Mini, ZT-P10600A-10L, 6GB GDDR5 Super Compact
ZOTAC GeForce GTX 1060 Mini, ZT-P10600A-10L, 6GB GDDR5 Super Compact

Pros: -So tiny! This will fit in almost any case. Great for anyone building a small PC with lots of power. -Installed easily. -Decent price. ($249.99) -VR Ready!!! -Runs almost everything at 1080p 60fps. -Seems quiet enough.

Cons: -Gets hot quickly, will easily get 70+ Celsius. (Mine hasn't overheated yet) -Too hot to overclock. -Can't do SLI with the 1060s.

Overall Review: I already knew what this card could and couldn't do, so I'm not complaining about the cons that much. This is a great card for a budget gaming build and VR build. If you have more space in your PC and could spare more money on graphics, then I'd recommend getting another 1060 that has 2 fans/better heat sink. Or just get this one and wait for an aftermarket cooler.

Good sized desk. Fingerprint magnet. Packaging arrived damaged.

Pros: Once put together, this is a very nice sized desk, fits perfectly at a corner in my room, I like it a lot.

Cons: I can't use the grid drawer, my desktop PC is too tall. The black top portion of the desk is an arm and fingerprint magnet, making me clean it every so often. The instructions didn't mention that the screw holes that go behind the desk needed to be facing a specific way, I wasted time taking it apart again to fix it. The packaging arrived damaged. Fortunately the desk itself was not damaged and no contents were lost. One of the outside corners of the shipping box took a severe hit and left about a 6 inch opening gap making the contents inside visible. I assume it was likely dropped on accident.

Overall Review: Bought this desk while it was discounted for $60. Assuming it's still discounted when you read this, if you're looking for desk on a budget at this size, this one is a good choice, just make sure you pay attention to the screw holes on the back when putting it together. It will be useful to have a second person to help. I also recommend having an electric drill with a hex bit, it will make this installation much quicker.

Good cooler!

CORSAIR Hydro Series H55 Quiet Edition Water / Liquid CPU Cooler 120mm (CW-9060010-WW)
CORSAIR Hydro Series H55 Quiet Edition Water / Liquid CPU Cooler 120mm (CW-9060010-WW)

Pros: I purchased the H55 for my AMD CPU, no issues at all 10 months in, keeps it nice and cool. I also own it's twin relative, the H50 (basically the same cooler but without the AMD brackets). Currently using the H50 with a NZXT GPU bracket, been using that cooler for 3 years and it's still going strong today. CPU (FX 8300) stays cool and the GPU (RX 580) max temp never goes above 70c.

Cons: Only one con, I hear some trapped air or bubbles in the cooler when the PC turns on, but the sound they make goes away quickly, not a serious issue.

Overall Review: I would definitely purchase this or any of the other lower cost coolers by Corsair, a very good way to cool your CPU or GPU and is not too expensive. Highly recommended for others looking to cool their overheating processors, just be sure to use the correct bracket for it.

Good cooler!

CORSAIR Hydro Series H50 120mm Quiet Edition Liquid CPU Cooler - Intel Only (CW-9060006-WW)
CORSAIR Hydro Series H50 120mm Quiet Edition Liquid CPU Cooler - Intel Only (CW-9060006-WW)

Pros: Have owned the H50 for a few years, still going strong today. Paired with the NZXT GPU Bracket for use on a HD 7870 Myst and a RX 580. Reasons I got it for the 7870 was for the ridiculous heat that thing put out, reached 92c (possibly higher) running on Star Citizen for about 15 mins before randomly shutting down. After that random shutdown, I could never get passed 70c without it crashing constantly or giving BSOD. So I tested other games to make sure it wasn't just SC, same issues happened. So that's when I slapped on this cooler with the GPU bracket and never saw it go above 67c, yay problems fixed. But further years ahead, the card gave me more minor problems, sometimes flickering would occur randomly every hour or so, also rare shutdowns started to creep up, I knew the card was dying and wouldn't last long. So I upgraded to the 580 in 2018, and was very glad to find out that the GPU bracket would fit it and used the same H50 cooler with some Arctic Silver 5. Now GPU is cooled very nicely, recently played Mordhau (mostly high settings) for 5 hours straight and the max temp was 69c.

Cons: Only one con, I hear some trapped air or bubbles in the cooler when the PC turns on, but the sound they make goes away. Not a serious issue.

Overall Review: I would definitely purchase this or any of the other low cost coolers by Corsair, a very good way to cool your CPU or GPU and is not too expensive. Highly recommended for others looking to cool their overheating processors, just be sure to use the correct bracket for it.

Great cooling for GPUs that support it.

Pros: Had this bracket for years, have had no issues at all. - Used with a Corsair H50. - Been used on two GPUs, a Radeon HD 7870 Myst Edition and a RX 580. - Fan still works.

Cons: Since my 580 is a little on the small side, the fan does stick out a bit, so that means less coverage on the GPU. I was worried the VRMs won't get cooled by it, but so far no overheating issues.

Overall Review: Must be sure that I will fit on your GPU, I got lucky when I found out it was compatible with the 580.

Good cheap headphones

Sennheiser HD201 Over-Ear Headphones

Pros: Great set of headphones for people on a budget. I've had them for about 2 years and their still in good condition. I haven't ripped the black cord yet, (like I did to my last pair) but the cord feels strong and well attached to the headphones, so I'm not too worried about that. They sound good and fit on my head comfortably. It also came with an adapter which is nice for connecting to other things that don't have the original connector.

Cons: The black cord is a bit long.. not a problem for me, but I'm sure someone out there might be bothered by this.

Overall Review: During the holidays (last Christmas), I had bought these for a relative as a gift. He enjoyed them and told me it had good sound and decent bass. Got them on sale here for less than $20 at the time. Nice
