Well built and easy to set up

Overall Review: With ample room for cable management and incredible ease to work in, the P600S is a beautiful addition to any setup, with sound dampening that combined with liquid cooling makes for a near silent setup.

Sounds fine, but...

MSI DS501 3.5mm Connector Circumaural Gaming Headset

Pros: Decent sound quality Chunky inline mute means less accidental muting

Cons: Cheap build quality Uncomfortable, ill-suited for extended use Does not stay in place well

Overall Review: I bought this headset as an urgent replacement for working at home after my previous headset failed. Despite a design that appeared quality, it has a cheap feel and design that makes for truly getting what you pay for. The headset kept sliding around on my head, requiring frequent readjustment, and even at that was painful to wear for more than an hour at a time, making it very much unsuitable for work at home use, never mind gaming.

Easy to install, far from quiet

Pros: Easy to install Better thermal performance than stock

Cons: Louder than comparable coolers Thermal performance worse than some coolers in the same price range

Overall Review: After much agonizing about installation, fan configuration and wiring, there's a persistent high pitched groaning sound that comes out rather pronounced in a case with sound dampening. Noise level rivals the stock Wraith Prism cooler from AMD, but more persistent.
