Most Favorable Review

This is a nice Laptop.

Lenovo 82DQ000PUS V14-ARE 14" Laptop R5-4500U 8GB 256GB SSD W10P
Lenovo 82DQ000PUS V14-ARE 14" Laptop R5-4500U 8GB 256GB SSD W10P

Pros: Fast storage 1650 plus MBPS Boots instantly Ryzen 5 4500U 1920x1080 Screen Windows 10 Pro Turns on when lid is opened. Boots fast. I like this laptop. It came with a PCIe SSD, so it's fast and 256GB of capacity is still nice for a boot drive. I added a 2TB SATA SSD to complete the storage. I am transferring Files to it right now at a steady 36.5 MBPS. Thats nice considering that It's my music that is backed up on a old 500 GB hard drive interfaced with a USB 3 dock. I think that this is the fastest I have seen this hard drive work. This is a very responsive system.

Cons: Lacks Optical Drive internal 8 GB memory, 12 limit because half is soldered to main board.

Overall Review: I like the Laptop overall. It is snappy and responsive. I use it to watch Youtube, Music, Movies (with external Bluray drive I made with a slimline drive enclosure), and I will play entry level games and emulate.

Most Critical Review

Worst nightmare to cable manage.

APEX Vortex 3620 SGCC / ABS ATX Mid Tower Gaming Computer Case
APEX Vortex 3620 SGCC / ABS ATX Mid Tower Gaming Computer Case

Pros: The only case that I could find with any 3.5 inch bays for drives. I needed 1 for a floppy, and one for a card reader. Used it for a Windows XP PC.

Cons: The cable management was the worst I've ever seen. No room behind motherboard tray. Also it has only 2 little holes for running cables. The fan for the front is restricted by a case grill behind the fan that should just be a hole instead. once I cut the metal out the card temp dropped by 10c. Also, I removed the sponge like filter material the front bezel. It was extremely restrictive. I changed out the front fan because eye piercing blue fan in the front of a case that is not windowed is stupid. The LED blue fan is way too bright. Also the power led is too bright. I had to put too peaces of masking tape over it to make it tolerable. The case is too top heavy. PSU is in the top. I'm using a HX 850 to power a HD7970. Also why fan grill in sheet metal is stupid.

Overall Review: In the year 2020 building a computer sucks. Case makers don't have any common sense. There is a bunch that could have been don to make the case better. 1 1/2 inch of room behind motherboard tray would be nice. More holes to run cables. No sheet-metal grill to block airflow. It's like a wall. Fan is quiet in the front, but it is lit really bright and should not be lit at all in a case that doesn't have a window. Also distracting. Can be improved on. 2 Eggs for stupidity.

Good Motherboard, VRM temps in check with I5-11600k

ASUS PRIME B560M-A LGA 1200 Intel B560 SATA 6Gb/s Micro ATX Intel Motherboard
ASUS PRIME B560M-A LGA 1200 Intel B560 SATA 6Gb/s Micro ATX Intel Motherboard

Pros: Works well VRM are staying cool 2 M.2 slots plus a Key E slot for a WiFi card

Cons: Be carful with the M.2 heatsink. It bas bending my M.2 SSD with the thermal pad on it. I removed the thermal pad frim it. It should still sink heat without the thermal pad. Thermal compund might be a better bet with a very small amount over heat spreader sticker.

Overall Review: Works well for reliability. I don't know how it overclocks. I just use XMP and Windows power settings in High Performance. I will be gaming with it. Should handle gaming fine.

Great mid range CPU.

Intel Core i5-11600K - Core i5 11th Gen Rocket Lake 6-Core 3.9 GHz LGA 1200 125W Intel UHD Graphics 750 Desktop Processor - BX8070811600K
Intel Core i5-11600K - Core i5 11th Gen Rocket Lake 6-Core 3.9 GHz LGA 1200 125W Intel UHD Graphics 750 Desktop Processor - BX8070811600K

Pros: Hexacore and Hyperthreaded.

Cons: None. Make sure that you are using this in at least a motherboard with a B560 chipset and a motherboard with a VRM heatsink. Tempin 3 on my Asus B560M-a is at 70c unnder load, and Tempin 3 on my Gigabyte B460M DS3H V2 is at 91c at idle. Under load it runs away to 108c and downclocks CPU to 800MHz. Not a fault of the CPU, but buyer beware that the CPU can exceed 125 watts under load and overheat VRMs

Overall Review: Love this Chip when it is in the right motherboard. Oh, use somthing like a Noctua NH-U12S to keep it cool. Stayed at 71c during a CPUz stress test. CPUz score of 4562.5. This is with XMP enabled and with the rest of settings stock. Remember that K skues are clocked a litte higher.

It works. Hate blue light at left of it

7 Port USB 2.0 5.25" Internal CD-ROM Bay Front Panel USB Hub,7 x USB 2.0 Type A Female to Motherboard USB 10 pin Hub Splitter Adapter w/ 5.25 inch Metal Bracket

Pros: Works well and it's power.

Cons: Blue LED is bad for your eyes and it lights up left USB socket.

Overall Review: Solidly built, but the blue LED lets it down. I'll probaly clip it off. Bule LED is not necessary for device to work.

I bought gray and black kits to match memoryslot coler.

G.SKILL Ripjaws V Series 16GB (2 x 8GB) 288-Pin DDR4 SDRAM DDR4 3200 (PC4 25600) Desktop Memory Model F4-3200C16D-16GVGB

Pros: Memory is reliable. Cost is good.

Cons: None unless it fails.

Overall Review: The memory looks nice in my Asus Prime B560M-A motherboard. I have it in My 650D and it looks good matching channel slot colors. I have the siler/gretish coler in channel 1, gray slots, and I have the black in the channel 2 slots, the black ones.

Wrong brand, right GPU

I received a EVGA GTX 750TI SC instead of a Asus GTX 750 Ti. It turns out that the seller actually sent a card with a slightly higher clock speed. I think that they did the right thing with the card. I jumped the gun and wrote a claim to Newegg. Seller could not contact me because my house phone was disconnected and I forgot to change information with Newegg. In the end, my claim was 75% wrong. I did write a apology to seller after they explained that they tried to contact via phone and email. I don't always check Email ether.

I like my M325 Mouse!

Package arrived on time. The Mouse I ordered was the correct one. Feels like a premium product as all Logitech mice do. Works well.
