Bright and long with decently strong magnets

Phanteks PH-LEDKT_M2 Multi Colors LED Strip 2m Specified for Phanteks Enthoo Luxe Case Upgrade
Phanteks PH-LEDKT_M2 Multi Colors LED Strip 2m Specified for Phanteks Enthoo Luxe Case Upgrade

Pros: Extremely long so if you need the room it works well. However It was a little long for my Phanteks p600s I have it connected to my Crosshair VIII mobo I needed the adapter to get it to work. Nice bright colors (not are all accurate see cons) if it lasts the price is pretty good for the length and quality. Sturdy magnets that hold decent to a metal case best way to mount although corners can be tricky unless you find an additional way to mount them. But for the price I think they are fair

Cons: As people have mentioned the 3m tape isn't good it won't stick to the led because it's rubber. Even tried to stick some Velcro to it and my case but didn't work well. I would use zip ties or clips to secure these if the managements ( They are fairly decent but corners might be tricky when holding.) It would probably be easier to get multiple smaller ones if you have a rgb header or mobo with multiple rgb headers. Also, the yellow and orange led seem pretty bad not color accurate. So if you want those colors you might want to try another led / brand? You will most likely need the adapter for the 12v rgb header so add that to cost as well.

Overall Review: I would recommend these if you need something lightly fairly cheap with good length. I would probably recommend these if you don't want yellow or orange. Pretty happy with the quality so far. Overall happen with the appearance. Photo is a lighter blue to kindof match cyberpunk blue.

Slightly expensive but solid num pad

Pros: Works great fits my needs for work at home. Good mechanical feel compact size.

Cons: Little expensive, backspace is nice but I kept hitting it instead of the Minus key on most key pads but got use to it.

Overall Review: I have a wireless Razer mechanical keyboard (not a full size keyboard) and I needed a number pad for work does the job well. I wasn't aware of the usb hub in the top of the unit as pictures did not show it but it's a nice feature.

Rosewill RTCA-TN450 Premium Quality Toner Cartridge (Replaces OEM# Brother TN-450, TN-420) 2,600 Pages Yield; Black

Pros: Does what it said it would do. Printed about 500 pages so far its working great, got it on sale for 20 bucks much cheaper then brothers toner. Worked with my brother HL-2230 just fine.

Cons: none

Overall Review: Had mixed reviews but it was a good purchase. Works fine with no problems as of 500 pages with my brother HL-2230 so i'll assume if it last it's a steal.

Fair Headphones

Sennheiser HD201S 3.5mm/ 6.3mm Connector Around-Ear Hi-fi Headphone
Sennheiser HD201S 3.5mm/ 6.3mm Connector Around-Ear Hi-fi Headphone

Pros: Fairly decent headphones. Got another pair when they were 12 bucks you can't beat them at that price. Bass isn't amazing but what do you expect for 20-30$ headphones. I use them with my desktop. They aren't great for music but sound quality is fair for games and movies. Long cord, I find them comfortable when I game for multiple hours they don't hurt my head like other headphones I've owned.

Cons: Wire is rather thin and bass isn't great. Besides the wire being a little thin I would say the way they adjust isn't great but it hasn't caused any problems as of 6 months.

Overall Review: They seem rather durable, dropped them multiple times about 3 feet onto hardwood and that plastic hasn't broke on my first pair and I've had them about 6 months. Good value for the sale price especially. Good product hopefully it will be awhile before I need to use the other pair but highly recommend them if you want comfy basic headphones.

Zalman vf3000a

ZALMAN VF3000A EBR Bearing VGA Cooler
ZALMAN VF3000A EBR Bearing VGA Cooler

Pros: Does a decent enough job. Idles around 30-40c depending on if my a/c is on. I live in Texas and it's summer so I say it's fair. Under load playing Bad Company 2 max i've seen is 65c so far but much more stable then my old stock cooler.

Cons: This is not made for a 6870. I knew that when I bought it. It does fit but it's slightly off center. So if your very neat it might bother you but it does the job. I wish it was all Copper but oh well. The price wasn't awful but only option that would work for my video card without spending another 30bucks that I didn't want to spend.

Overall Review: I have the Msi r6870 Twin Frozer II I bought this thinking I wouldn't have to replace the cooler but I was wrong and wasted more money then just getting a regular ol' 6870. But overall it's fine. I didn't use the red heat spreaders they gave. Mine already had an Aluminium silver plates that overed all the ram and what not. So yeah, if you use those might help but I left the stock ones on from my card because they covered all the memory. I didn't bother with the rebate either. It's overclock as well so yeah full load temps are around 65c not bad. And I used the paste Zalman provided ran out of my own so just food for thought. As far as it destroying your card I think that is just the gamble you take when putting on aftermarket products. All I can say is ground yourself and place it on a static bag. I was fairly rough with it and it didn't break in any shape or form. As others have stated if your doing crossfire I would suggest another cooler takes up a total about 2 1/2 - 3 depending.

Pros: Can handle most games on high settings might need to tweek settings of course but very good performance for the price. Runs gta 4 very good better then my gtx 260.

Cons: Hdmi cable hook up doesn't fit 1920 x 1080 resolution it makes a black border on my monitor for some reason and my monitor supports 1920 x 1080. I heard it might be a driver issue with windows 7 64bit not 100% sure.

Overall Review: Overall a very good card for the money, replaced my broken gtx 260 for about 100 bucks less and similar results. CCC isn't bad if you figure it out. I've had bad luck with nvidia cards so I went back with ati and I haven't been disappointed yet but time will tell. People say it gets hot but eh its a video card, runs about 10-15c cooler then my 8800gt did with stock cooling. I'm rather impressed with its power in a smaller package its a lot smaller then my old 260 was and a little bit smaller then my old 8800gt. No extras in the box which kind of stunk but I have all the extras at this point so not really a con. Buy it if your replacing an older card or building a budget system you shouldn't be disappointed.
