Worked Perfectly

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: -Easy to use. Lid wasn't hard to twist off and plunger wasn't hard to push

Cons: -Very tiny tube. I know it'll last me a long time but if I'm not careful I'll misplace it.

Overall Review: Got this because my CPU was overheating. I hadn't replaced the paste since I built my tower 10+ years ago so it was beyond time. Temperatures were 50 Celsius on startup and 70 just watching Youtube. I can see how it can be messy during application but I had no trouble. Afterwards my CPU was downright chilly in comparison at 15-20C at startup and maybe 40 when gaming now.

Perfect replacement workstation

Pros: Lots of value for the price! Came pre-loaded with Windows 10 Pro edition and the 16GB RAM makes it run way faster than the old on. Arrived super quick too!

Cons: Only negative thing was the mouse that was provided didn't work. Left-Click seems busted but right click works. Didn't need to worry about that as I already had one from the old PC.

Overall Review: My wife's PC died after a power outage and it was 10+ years old anyway so this was a perfect replacement for web browsing, videos and desktop work

Good headset!

Pros: -Very comfortable. Ear pads are soft and the set doesn't feel like it's squishing my head -Good balance between source audio and vocal audio. Played a game online with friends and I didn't feel the need to should over the game or ask anyone to repeat themselves -Surround sound works nicely. Need to fully test this out yet. -Fun features with the audio and mic settings

Cons: -Not likely to get support easily from this company. Went to the website to download drivers and the link didn't work. Bought the Newegg EPP 3-year plan just in case. -English instructions were more "Engrish" but still follow-able -Kinda pricey for a headset? I got it on sale for 30$ but if you're gonna blow over $100 on a headset I'm sure there are better options

Overall Review: The Overview states the drivers for Windows 10 need to be downloaded from their website. I tried this but the link is broken. I looked at the CD that came with mine and it had a label on it specifying it would install drivers for Win 10 anyway. I installed them with the disc and all is good so far.

Perfect budget flight stick

THRUSTMASTER T.Flight Hotas X Joystick
THRUSTMASTER T.Flight Hotas X Joystick

Pros: Plenty of buttons, good feel for both throttle and stick, easy to separate and re-attach

Cons: I keep seeing comments about the cord between the throttle and stick could be longer, It feels and plays fine when connected though, I'd say it's preferance

Overall Review: I bought this for Elite:Dangerous and it works like a dream. Hardest part was figuring out what did what and how best to configure it to my liking. Works well with Star Wars Tie Fighter, X-Wing and Tachyon: The Fringe too! If you're confused when setting it up, READ THE MANUAL.
