Cooler Master HAF 932 Advanced - High Air Flow Full Tower Computer Case with USB 3.0 and All-Black Interior
Cooler Master HAF 932 Advanced - High Air Flow Full Tower Computer Case with USB 3.0 and All-Black Interior

Pros: -Great Airflow -Future proofness -Highly expandable -Quiet -Wheels -Detatchable/reatchable vents and front bay covers -Expansion slot clips(when you put a card it you don't need to screw it in you because it has a clip you can press down instead in a matter of second but if its a big gpu i would use screws) -Flexibility for customization (It has holes for a water cooling reservoir, and tubing, Also has a slot for top or bottom mounted psu, and slots of pretty much any size mobo, and screw holes for so many fan/radiator configurations) -Back plate that comes off for wire management -Big 230mm fan that blows right onto gpus -price point

Cons: -No dust filter -The HDD indicator LED on the front is obnoxiously bright, I have to cover it with something if I keep my computer on when i go to bed otherwise it literally light up the entire wall. You could probably see this LED from space -CPU cut out on the backplate does not line up with modern mobos(really not a big deal if you put the bracket on before screwing on the mobo)

Overall Review: I bought this case in either 2010 or 2011, years ago and it is still serving me well. I recently bought a new mobo, ram, cpu, ect and this cane ist so great there is no need to get another one. It is still in fantastic shape. I had the 230mm side fan get noisy on me(just started like a week ago) but that is a simple thing to swap out. Over all if you are looking for a great case with a ton of expanability and something that will last a long time this is it.

Most Critical Review

Great Picture, Good For Gaming, BUT Web OS STINKS

LG OLED65C1PUB 65" 4K Smart OLED TV w/ AI ThinQ (2021)
LG OLED65C1PUB 65" 4K Smart OLED TV w/ AI ThinQ (2021)

Pros: - Great Picture - Great Low latency 120hz gaming - Awesome HDR - Decent Price for OLED

Cons: - WebOS is clunky and slow - YoutubeTV & Youtube Apps Close and force tv to switch source randomly - Weird UI. When changing anything in settings menu, it opens the last open app. - Bad voice control - Too many "AI" Feature that make things worse

Overall Review: The picture quality of this OLED is great, but perhaps not as good as some competitor products in the OLED space now but for gaming and HDR its hard to beat. The TV is however unfortunately unusable often times via webOS. I use streaming services for cable, like YoutubeTV, and the app will often just close with no error message at all, and switch to HDMI 1. I reset the TV, updated the tv, apps, ect.. Then I spent 2 hours with LG trying to diagnose to no avail. LG even had the motherboard replaced and the issue still happens. I am convinced that it is just poorly written code on the TV. I am an IT professional for a living too, so its not just some sort of user error. Also, the webOS is so slow when you load the home screen at first, adding 5-10 seconds every time. I've resorted to getting a $20 fireTV stick to solve my issues with this TV. It is a shame the TV that cost many hundreds of dollars requires a $30 fire tv stick to be operational. If I had a do over, I would get a competitor's tv that runs google's OS and avoid all this hair pulling nonsense .

Great ssd for me

Pros: This is a very good hard drive. It works like it should. Very fast and very reliable for me.

Cons: This only seems to work well in AHCI Mode. If in IDE it will freeze constantly and i have heard bad things about raid aswell. But if you install windows in ahci mode you will not have any problems

Overall Review: Overall great drive, reasonably priced

Great CPU FAN

XIGMATEK Gaia SD1283 120mm Long Life Bearing CPU Cooler LGA1150 Haswell Compatible
XIGMATEK Gaia SD1283 120mm Long Life Bearing CPU Cooler LGA1150 Haswell Compatible

Pros: I was skeptical about this when i got it thinking it wouldn't really work as well as everyone else is saying.. But once i got it all installed I ran Prim95(Program that stresses cpu to 100%) and the temps never got past 40 degrees celcius, i only ran it for an hour but with my stock cpu fan after about 3 minutes my temps would have been 55 degrees celcius.. This is a very good fan.

Cons: Its a bit big and is a pain to install but that comes with all aftermarket coolers.. Also the bracket that came with it has foam padding on the back. Im using an amd 1055t and the directions say to keep the padding on if using this chip but it wouldn't fit so i just had to cut a little hole.. Not difficult.

Overall Review: Overall I highly recommend it. Its very good, Great value, and if your not looking to spend a lot but want something that is very good get this! Just make sure it fits in your case.

XFX Radeon HD 6950 2GB GDDR5 PCI Express 2.1 x16 CrossFireX Support Video Card with Eyefinity HD-695A-CNFC

Pros: Runs pretty well.. I can run almost any game on max settings..(dirt 2 - 50 fps, crysis 2 50 fps) No lagg really..

Cons: Runs hot.. Had to change the fan profile(After burner) because the fans were always at 30%, it seemed quiet because of that but would get up to 80c FAST.. Very Heavy, Very long.. Make sure you have enough space.. I got this in my mid tower case BARELY with 1cm to spare..

Overall Review: Really good card overall, make sure your psu is big enough and make sure you have 2 6 pin pcie connectors available..

Fan

MASSCOOL FD08025S1M4 80mm Case Cooling Fan
MASSCOOL FD08025S1M4 80mm Case Cooling Fan

Pros: Very good value fast shipping took literally 20 seconds to install(popped right in and just plugged molex in. moves decent amount of air... i love the sleeves.

Cons: A little noisy.. but nothing too noticable

Overall Review: it was $1.99 its great quality for being so cheap.. Highly recommended.. Dont let the noise put you off of this.. all other fans will be just as loud and this very cheap.
