Most Favorable Review

Clean look but kinda tall

G.SKILL 4GB (2 x 2GB) DDR2 1066 (PC2 8500) Dual Channel Kit Desktop Memory Model F2-8500CL5D-4GBPI-B
G.SKILL 4GB (2 x 2GB) DDR2 1066 (PC2 8500) Dual Channel Kit Desktop Memory Model F2-8500CL5D-4GBPI-B

Pros: It was relatively cheap compared to other manufacturers. Its very fast and it looks nice in the case. Great heatsinks. Heatsinks also double as a handle if you dont have a lot of room to work (although I dont think they're supposed to be used as a handle.)

Cons: Quite tall. Might cause a problem if you have an after market cpu cooler on a board where the cpu and memory are close together.

Most Critical Review

Decent Headset

TRITTON AX PC Pro 5.1 True Surround Sound Headset, 8 Precision Speakers, Designed For PC – USB Input Only
TRITTON AX PC Pro 5.1 True Surround Sound Headset, 8 Precision Speakers, Designed For PC – USB Input Only

Pros: Comfortable. Fit nice. Good sound quality. A bunch of options and things to play around with.

Cons: Control box is a little irritating if you're tall, it just dangles at my side all the time. It gets caught on the desk or the chair. Also all the wheels on it are kind of irritating, if you go to pick up the control box and you accidentally tip one of the settings you can blow your ears out.

Overall Review: It's a decent headset. It replaced my old one that only worked on one side. I like it but I've also got a really good surround sound system and there is no way to switch between your speakers and your headset without unplugging the headset.

Well featured case at a great price!

Fractal Design Meshify C Black ATX High-Airflow Compact Dark Tint Tempered Glass Window Mid Tower Computer Case
Fractal Design Meshify C Black ATX High-Airflow Compact Dark Tint Tempered Glass Window Mid Tower Computer Case

Pros: -Quality construction -Good cable management features -Enough room for good high end products -Excellent airflow characteristics

Cons: -Front IO panel connected to front panel so no clean removal of front panel

Overall Review: I would recommend this case to anyone who wants a little bit of everything at a great price point. Not many cases at this price and size contain most of the features of cases that cost twice as much.

Moves air, stays quiet

Pros: -Quiet at low rpm -relatively cheap compared to similar models -moves high volume of air -cools quickly

Cons: -can be noisy at high rpm (doesn't stay at high rpm for very long due to efficiency)

The Classic Stuff!

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: Works as well as it ever has.

Cons: None

Overall Review: These days there is an entire host of different compounds that can be used in your builds. My thought is that if it aint broke, dont fix it. However, I've read some reviews about some builds requiring different compounds, if thats what you need, go that way.

Easy to install, easy to use

EVGA GeForce GTX 1060 6GB GDDR5 PCI Express 3.0 Video Card 06G-P4-6262-KR
EVGA GeForce GTX 1060 6GB GDDR5 PCI Express 3.0 Video Card 06G-P4-6262-KR

Pros: Upgraded from a GTX 950 and this card has shown a large improvement. Stays cool, runs well, no issues.

Cons: None

Overall Review: Bought this card right after the crypto mining boom started to settle down. It was worth the money at the time. I dont overclock or do anything special other than play games so this is a fantastic card. I wish that I would have held off a little longer and bought one of the RTX cards or a 1080 Ti which is the same price now as this was when I bought it last year.
