AMAZING Performance, AMAZING build quality, AMAZING Product!

Noctua NH-D15S chromax.black, Premium Dual-Tower CPU Cooler with NF-A15 PWM 140mm Fan (Black)
Noctua NH-D15S chromax.black, Premium Dual-Tower CPU Cooler with NF-A15 PWM 140mm Fan (Black)

Pros: - Amazing performance. - Amazing fit and finish. - Amazing clearance for computer internals. - Mounting system is dummy proof. - Generally silent even under full system load. - Gorgeous engineering. - Clear installation instructions.

Cons: - Does not grant wishes...

Overall Review: The performance of this cooler is nothing short of amazing. I upgraded my i7-10700F from the stock Intel cooler and was blown away by the results. Under a full 16 thread system load, the stock cooler was not only obnoxiously lour, it would also fail to adequately cool the CPU immediately. The CPU would instantly hit 100ºc in all cores and throttle down to 3ghz in all cores while still dancing around the 100ºc mark. After the install, I ran a 1 hour burn in and the CPU never surpassed the 75ºc mark in any core and never dipped below the max 4.6ghz.

Amazing 4K@60fps+ graphics card, but way over-priced

Pros: The card is an absolute beast! Stock cooling solution keeps the temps in check.

Cons: None so far.

Overall Review: Frame rates are high, temperatures are low, quality seems great.

Great budget 4K Monitor!

Samsung UR59C Series U32R590C 32" (Actual size 31.5") Ultra HD 3840 x 2160 4K Resolution HDMI DisplayPort Flicker Free LED Backlit Curved LCD Monitor
Samsung UR59C Series U32R590C 32" (Actual size 31.5") Ultra HD 3840 x 2160 4K Resolution HDMI DisplayPort Flicker Free LED Backlit Curved LCD Monitor

Pros: - Great price- Huge- ZERO dead pixels out of 8,294,400 of them, not bad- Decent response time

Cons: - The cable management in the back is cramped if you're running both HDMI and DisplayPort.- No VESA mounting- Terrible viewing angle- The bottom has a strange haze as if the backlight is slightly occluded. It doesn't end sharply, it fades off.- Expect to calibrate

Overall Review: - Great price point to break into curved 4K in the home office.- Great general purpose monitor for the price.- Not amazing for gaming, but definitely good enough to play on.
