It works

ORICO USB 3.0 PCI Express Card Hub Controller Adapter Card with 2 Rear USB 3.0 Hosts and Internal USB 3.0 with 15PIN Power Connector -Black
ORICO USB 3.0 PCI Express Card Hub Controller Adapter Card with 2 Rear USB 3.0 Hosts and Internal USB 3.0 with 15PIN Power Connector -Black

Pros: Small and cheap. It fits in my FD Core 1000 perfectly.

Cons: It is installed right below my EVGA Geforce 750 Ti, and there is like a 7mm of the card covering the card''s fan/exhaust. Due to the size of these type of cards, no matter which brand I get it will still stick out a little. That is one bad thing with Micro-ATX board with two PCI-E slots...

Comfortable

Corsair HS60 PRO SURROUND 3.5mm Connector Circumaural Gaming Headset, Carbon
Corsair HS60 PRO SURROUND 3.5mm Connector Circumaural Gaming Headset, Carbon

Pros: Comfortable Light weight Mic works great Sounds clear and better than expected

Cons: None

Overall Review: Son needed a new headset for his games. HS60 was on sales so I got it as his Bday present. It is not heavy and sounds just right for gaming. He used it daily and is using it now for school as they gone online route for the next four weeks.

Easy to use, still the best

Arctic Silver 5 High-Density Polysynthetic Silver Thermal Compound AS5-3.5G
Arctic Silver 5 High-Density Polysynthetic Silver Thermal Compound AS5-3.5G

Pros: It is very easy to use. Since it is Arctic Silver, its always 5 stars!

Cons: None.

Overall Review: Had to replace my son's CPU cooler(stock Intel) with an Arctic Freezer 11 low profile. Need new thermal compound as my old one was too old, and the compounds had separated.

Just works!

Mushkin Enhanced Stealth 16GB (2 x 8GB) DDR3 1600 (PC3 12800) Desktop Memory Model 997069S
Mushkin Enhanced Stealth 16GB (2 x 8GB) DDR3 1600 (PC3 12800) Desktop Memory Model 997069S

Pros: After running with 8 GB for many years, time to add some more memory so I can run VM and play Archeage at the same time. It has been couple of months and had zero issues. Tested with Prime95 twice - first when I got the modules, and then again after a month - both times there were no errors.

Cons: None

Overall Review: Would buy again.

Incorrect info about rust

TIGER PVH-B30U Hot Water Kettle
TIGER PVH-B30U Hot Water Kettle

Pros: Has one and has been using it for over 2 years

Cons: Heating slowly..

Overall Review: Most people thing rust is from the pot, but it is actually minerals from the water. You will see the rust from every other brand, unless you clean and wipe the inside every night. If you have a stainless steel kettle to boil your water before using this electrical thermo water heating pot, then you will also notice rust, or even blackish looking, inside the pot.

Great card for the price

PowerColor Radeon HD 6850 1GB GDDR5 PCI Express 2.1 x16 CrossFireX Support Video Card with Eyefinity AX6850 1GBD5-DH
PowerColor Radeon HD 6850 1GB GDDR5 PCI Express 2.1 x16 CrossFireX Support Video Card with Eyefinity AX6850 1GBD5-DH

Pros: Good price. Quiet - fan is not noisy even when gaming Fit in my mid-tower case!

Cons: It is not free

Overall Review: I have never owned a Powercolor before. Many people said they make cheap cards, so I was a little worry first. However, the card has performed quite well. I am replacing it with a Giga 9600GSO fanless card. Under loaded i can hear a little fan noise, but not too loud. All in all, I like it and would buy again.
