Awesome SSD, Crucial M500 480GB

Crucial M500 CT480M500SSD1 7mm (with 9.5mm adapter) 2.5" 480GB SATA III MLC Internal Solid State Drive (SSD)
Crucial M500 CT480M500SSD1 7mm (with 9.5mm adapter) 2.5" 480GB SATA III MLC Internal Solid State Drive (SSD)

Pros: I've had this SSD for about 2 years and only had one problem. The genius I am, I was cloning during a storm (Melbourne, FL--Lightning capital of northern hemisphere) and a strike fried several items (TV,cable box). My SSD got corrupted from the power fluctuations (UPS didn't help). After I wiped it clean and did a fresh reload of windows, it works great.

Cons: Don't try to clone an SSD in a lightning storm!!

Overall Review: It takes about 20 seconds from the time I hit the ON button to the time I'm on the internet.

Top of the Line!

ZOTAC GAMING GeForce RTX 2070 AMP Extreme 8GB GDDR6 256-bit Graphics Card, IceStorm 2.0, Active Fan Control, Metal Wraparound Backplate, Spectra RGB LED Lighting (ZT-T20700B-10P)
ZOTAC GAMING GeForce RTX 2070 AMP Extreme 8GB GDDR6 256-bit Graphics Card, IceStorm 2.0, Active Fan Control, Metal Wraparound Backplate, Spectra RGB LED Lighting (ZT-T20700B-10P)

Pros: This card boosts as fast as many 2080 cards, and with only setting the power limit to 110%, over-clocks itself to almost 2100 Mhz(2085). It stays nice and cool on it's own, but I have a slightly more aggressive fan curve set up. This card should Not be sold as a 2070, but should in all reality be a lower end 2080 card. It's even faster than Any of the "2070 Super" cards on the market, right out of the box.

Cons: It's a 2080 card listed as 2070? The stickers on the fans aren't centered and look funny when they spin, so I just took the stickers off.

Overall Review: Outstanding card priced on the lower side of the field, but on the Highest end of performance. Don't bypass this card because Zotac isn't as well known as ASUS or MSI.

Ocool is nice and cool

Alphacool NexXxoS XT45 Full Copper 280mm Radiator (14169)
Alphacool NexXxoS XT45 Full Copper 280mm Radiator (14169)

Pros: I installed this radiator May of 2017. Two years later and still going strong. No corrosion or gunk build up since I used all Alphacool copper parts. This is a high quality (but heavy) radiator. I highly recommended!!

Cons: The only Con at this point is the paint quality. It was obviously not looked at thoroughly before packing because there is some exposed copper on the fins of the radiator where it wasn't painted very well. This was not an issue for me since I already had a can of Engine Rust-Oleum spray paint and repainted my self.

Overall Review: Beware of the height of this radiator, the picture is deceiving. It is 60mm thick actual size including the frame.

Excellent SSD

WD Blue 3D NAND 500GB Internal SSD - SATA III 6Gb/s 2.5"/7mm Solid State Drive - WDS500G2B0A
WD Blue 3D NAND 500GB Internal SSD - SATA III 6Gb/s 2.5"/7mm Solid State Drive - WDS500G2B0A

Pros: I bought this to upgrade a friends PC. I used the Acronis software downloaded from the WD website. Acronis cloned the HDD perfectly and the PC worked just as before just much faster. I currently run a WD NVMe drive and Love it. I've never had an issue with WD drives and I'm a loyal customer, although I've had issues with other manufacturers.

Cons: Only Con is it wasn't Free :)

Overall Review: I've had issues with Mushkin, Samsung, and I will never buy another Seagate. Western Digital and Crucial are the only drives I will buy now, WD being first depending on price.

Surprisingly Fast

ASUS PCE-AC51 AC750 Wireless Dual-Band PCI-E Adapter
ASUS PCE-AC51 AC750 Wireless Dual-Band PCI-E Adapter

Pros: I bought this to upgrade a friends PC. He had an older Dell with a Core Duo CPU. With a little faster DRAM, an SSD, and a good cleaning, his PC runs Much better. I also got this to upgrade his WIFI. When I connected it to my Orbi, I could not believe how fast it downloaded Windows Updates. There were about 20 updates that Windows downloaded and it took less than five minutes to download ALL of them. It automatically connected to the 5G and was Very Fast.

Cons: None

Overall Review: Overall, I am Very happy with this WIFI adapter. If I wasn't already hardwired, I'd buy this for myself.

Great RAM!

G.SKILL Ripjaws Series 16GB (2 x 8GB) 260-Pin DDR4 SO-DIMM DDR4 2133 (PC4 17000) Laptop Memory Model F4-2133C15D-16GRS
G.SKILL Ripjaws Series 16GB (2 x 8GB) 260-Pin DDR4 SO-DIMM DDR4 2133 (PC4 17000) Laptop Memory Model F4-2133C15D-16GRS

Pros: I put this into my wife's older laptop that had 12GB RAM. Yes, it had an 8GB and 4GB DIMM of different manufacturer and speed. Not sure how it ever worked before, but it works like Night and Day. My wife is ecstatic over the difference. I've never used G.Skill but I've heard good things so I took a chance and Now my wife is very happy, so I am too.

Cons: Not Corsair Dominator Platinum? Could have been Free?? Doesn't have fancy LEDs you can't see inside of a Laptop anyway???

Overall Review: I have no regrets buying this RAM and I highly recommend to anyone thinking about it.

Horrible shipping!

I ordered this FIVE days ago and it still hasn't shipped. Now it's Friday afternoon and I have to wait until Monday to see if they get off their butts and ship it Next week. I'll get this somewhere else!
