Most Favorable Review

Great case, easy to build in.

Fractal Design Define Mini C Black Silent Compact Micro ATX Mini Tower Computer Case
Fractal Design Define Mini C Black Silent Compact Micro ATX Mini Tower Computer Case

Pros: - Clean looking design. - Sturdy frame. - Cable management is extremely simple. - Lots of room. Hyper 212 evo fits with 3/4 - 1" to spare.

Cons: - The top and front fan mounts are very thin/flimsy.

Overall Review: - If you have very stiff psu cables, avoid using the middle sata plug for the 2.5" mounts behind the mobo. I have Corsair RM550 and the memory spikes on the back of the mobo poked through the power cable, luckily i forgot to plug the sata into the psu or that may have been a bad day. - I don't have power plugs for the 3pin fan connections and only 1 working pwm header on my mobo wish i had ordered https://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16812162059&ignorebbr=1 along with this. - I think this is the cheapest case I've ever bought, yet by far feels the most premium.

Junk

Titan TTC-NA02TZ/RPW/CU30 95mm Z-AXIS Copper Cooler for socket 1150,1155 & 1156
Titan TTC-NA02TZ/RPW/CU30 95mm Z-AXIS Copper Cooler for socket 1150,1155 & 1156

Pros: Keeps CPU from burning up Small

Cons: Constant electrical whine unless you have fan speed maxed. (Very annoying) Doesn't perform as well as stock intel sink. Expensive for performance.

Overall Review: Stay with stock or look elsewhere, this thing isn't worth your money.

Great Gaming Monitor (first impression)

Pixio PX329 32" 165Hz WQHD 2560 x 1440 Wide Screen Bezel Less Display Professional 1440p VA AMD Radeon FreeSync Certified Gaming Monitor Compatible with Xbox (120Hz & VRR) and PS4
Pixio PX329 32" 165Hz WQHD 2560 x 1440 Wide Screen Bezel Less Display Professional 1440p VA AMD Radeon FreeSync Certified Gaming Monitor Compatible with Xbox (120Hz & VRR) and PS4

Pros: - Solid build quality - Large display - Not Curved - Certainly a sizable bump in picture quality vs my aging tn panel and also my cheaper ips panel. - High refresh 165Hz - No dead/stuck pixels - Perfectly simple aesthetic design - Sturdy stand (albeit featureless)

Cons: - DP Cable is very short, something like 4-5ft - Has a power brick... That's all i can find to complain about. I wouldn't consider myself qualified to make statements about color accuracy and such.

Overall Review: - I have an RTX 2070 and it's pretty difficult to reach consistent 144-165fps in most non esports titles. - I would say the pixel density is very similar to my 24" 1080p display which is perfectly fine in my opinion. - A 32" Display is bordering on verge of being too big depending on the types games you play, the edges are far enough away to be outside of your focused view. - 144-165Hz vs 60-75Hz To my eyes there's an obvious increase in clarity of moving objects though I'm not sure it really lives up to the hype. - Kudos to Newegg + FedEx free standard shipping (Ordered Friday, Delivered Saturday) it's nice to live ~ 300 miles from distrocenter. Overall I'm happy with this purchase and would recommend to anyone looking for a large monitor.

Great Value GPU, Not Very Stable though

MSI Radeon RX 580 8GB GDDR5 PCI Express x16 CrossFireX Support Video Card RX 580 GAMING X 8G
MSI Radeon RX 580 8GB GDDR5 PCI Express x16 CrossFireX Support Video Card RX 580 GAMING X 8G

Pros: - Performance meets expectations set by specs - Runs cool and quiet - Solid Construction - Price vs Performance

Cons: - A driver issue or card defect prevents it from running at stock speeds

Overall Review: I may have a defective card I guess, but if i forget to under clock %5 any game that pushes the card to max will black screen and require a hard reset. It's really a shame because this is actually a really great card for the money but I've dealt with this issue for awhile and I'm over it. I went ahead and got a RTX 2070, aside from the gouge left in my wallet I'm a happy camper.

Very impressed with the performance.

Cooler Master Hyper 212 Evo CPU Cooler, 4 CDC Heatpipes, 120mm PWM Fan, Aluminum Fins for AMD Ryzen/Intel LGA1200/1151
Cooler Master Hyper 212 Evo CPU Cooler, 4 CDC Heatpipes, 120mm PWM Fan, Aluminum Fins for AMD Ryzen/Intel LGA1200/1151

Pros: - Very affordable. - Almost silent. - Does a really great job. - Straight forward installation. - Fits small case (barely) (Rosewill Legacy U3-S)

Cons: - Pretty big - Any tall ram heatsinks will not fit. (GA-H87M-HD3)

Overall Review: For the money you simply can't beat it. Keep in mind that my case has maybe the worst cooling solution. A single very cheap exhaust fan. My Results: i7-4770 Balanced power profile (Speed step enabled) Intel Stock Cooler Ambient: ~22°C Idle: ~45°C Load: ~81°C Hyper 212 Ambient: ~22°C Idle: ~33°C Load: ~55°C

Great Keyboard

Das Keyboard Professional S for Mac DASK3PROMS1MACCLI Black 104 Normal Keys USB 2.0 Wired Keyboard - MX Blue

Pros: Very Easy to type on. Responsive keystrokes with a nice clicky noise. Good price relative to most mechanical keyboards. Has mac media keys.

Cons: Would have been better IMO to put the usb ports on the back. I really hate the polished plastic body (Fingerprint magnet).

Overall Review: I would have liked a backlight... Alot of the reviews on youtube make it seem like the mx blue switches will wake the neighbors but I find them quite reasonable. Unless you have paper thin walls they arent loud enough to disturb anyone in another room.
