Excellent!

Phanteks PH-TC12LS_RGB 120mm UFB (Updraft Floating Balance) Bearing CPU Cooler with RGB Halos
Phanteks PH-TC12LS_RGB 120mm UFB (Updraft Floating Balance) Bearing CPU Cooler with RGB Halos

Pros: Great control and performance - quiet - colorful & "purdy" - keeps a chill - in other words VERY unlike my previous marriage. See there - gotcha :) Is a good point tho Paired great with AMD Ryzen 3400G - on MSI Gaming Plus x470 - keeps the heat down so low temps - I have to open up the case and check for frost. okay...so I stretched it a TAD - but it does a very good job at keeping the temps down - also syncs with the on-board controls in both speed and lighting. Compliments well with MSI on board LED also. Like a mini 80's dance going on in there. How would I know? well because - I am a 80's "survivor" :) Was a little skeptical at first when shopping around for cooler options - but glad I picked this one which is totally unlike my previous marriage. Gotcha again! Sturdy - well built - smooth curves - even has a awesome whisper. What? oh so you on guard this time - ok so.... Instructions great - handling in getting together went good - some may complain a little when assembling the final mount but is no big deal - I have seen WAY much worse - especially in my previous build. O so you thought like my previous marriage again. That's cool - you're right.

Cons: None - but if anything on the other hand you see...would be my previous marriage

Overall Review: Super - enjoying the quiet sound of great CPU cooling even when on higher loads - so defintely recommend

Great option for a fax setup.....

US Robotics 56K USB Soft Modem - Fax/Modem (USR5639)
US Robotics 56K USB Soft Modem - Fax/Modem (USR5639)

Pros: The modem works great - had a previous US Robotics model that got damaged by electrical storm - and replaced it with this one. One thing to note - if someone has used a previous model, make sure that any previous driver(s) or files are uninstalled before activating the newer one. Helps in preventing any driver or performance glitches.

Cons: Not really a con - just a note on my personal experience. Had a issue with fax being verified as sent, but not received by other party. The PC it was installed on still had remnants of a previous modem model driver - so cleaned those up and manually installed the driver zip package from US Robotics and that resolved the problem.

Overall Review: Have had great user experience with these in the past and definitely recommend!

Pros: Hey never mind on the alien signal thing - that was just noise at the neighbors....anywho.... Excellent Wifi card + Bluetooth - speaking of which, pop question - everyone know where Bluetooth got it's name? Look that up - interesting. High speed reception - and a boosted BT (5.0) - can't beat the combo - and heat sink to boot. Great service also through Fenvi direct - as it came really pre-assembled so avoided the micro screw syndrome or MSS - speaking of which, pop question - anyone know where term micro screw syndrome comes from? ME! :) No seriously - long time ago there was this village of overly populated elves that...well...anyway rest is history. Pleased with the performance and quality of this adapter - and will be keeping this in mind for another build. Easy to install as well.

Cons: None

Awesome! for the non-awesome like me who look over the need....

Rosewill RCW-H9021 - DVI Female to HDMI Male Adapter
Rosewill RCW-H9021 - DVI Female to HDMI Male Adapter

Pros: Really great adapter - especially for those non-adapting moments when you somehow...umm...maybe kinda....sorta - FORGET about needing one in the first place. I'm somewhat absent minded anyway - part of being an 80's "survivor" :) Works great - makes that video connection...well...visible. Much better than a blank screen!

Cons: Nada - peace!

Overall Review: Great item - do recommend
