An Engineering Marvel

LIAN LI PC-O11 Dynamic White Tempered Glass on the Front and Left Sides, Chassis Body SECC ATX Mid Tower Gaming Computer Case - PC-O11DW
LIAN LI PC-O11 Dynamic White Tempered Glass on the Front and Left Sides, Chassis Body SECC ATX Mid Tower Gaming Computer Case - PC-O11DW

Pros: - The white looks amazing! - Its very well built - Its huge! You can fit so many fans in here! - I'm doing a full water-cooling loop here with a distro plate and all, and I can see why this is a top choice for custom water coolers! It has so many different options on where you can put your fans, radiators, pumps, distro plates, etc. - Very securely packed in the box! That thing isn't going anywhere!!

Cons: - This is the thing I hate the most about it: THE CASE IS WHITE BUT THE GLASS HAS BLACK BEZELS!!!!! WHY??!! I guess you can always just use it without the glass, but still...

Overall Review: - I haven't used it yet, because I'm saving up to buy all of my water-cooling parts. I've taken it out of the box once, just to look at if anything is bent or broken but all is good. - I saw plenty of reviews saying that the glass panels just randomly fall off, and Lian Li has acknowledged the problem, but since I've kept it in the box, I can't attest to anything. At least Lian Li sends out free panels to anyone who has had them fall off! That's very nice! - I'll update my review as I use the case more and more and see if my panels fall off.

Beautiful addition to my build

LIAN LI STRIMER PLUS 24 Pins Addressable RGB Power Extension Cable - Strimer 24 Pins
LIAN LI STRIMER PLUS 24 Pins Addressable RGB Power Extension Cable - Strimer 24 Pins

Pros: - Looks AMAZING!!!! - Nice and Long - Curves/twists nicely - High grade cable - Nice that you can take it apart to change the orientation of the ports

Cons: - Unlike the GPU 2x 8 pin, you NEED to use the controller and so the lighting choices are a little restrictive especially since there is no software that lets you control all of your RGB, no matter the brand

Overall Review: This is amazing! If its $90 CAD or under, its a definite buy, especially if its on sale!!

Great, but not so much for long time use

Logitech G432 Wired Gaming Headset, 7.1 Surround Sound, DTS Headphone:X 2.0, Flip-to-Mute Mic, PC (Leatherette) Black/Blue
Logitech G432 Wired Gaming Headset, 7.1 Surround Sound, DTS Headphone:X 2.0, Flip-to-Mute Mic, PC (Leatherette) Black/Blue

Pros: - Very comfortable for the beginning (I'll explain later) - The surround sound is amazing!! - As a person with glasses, I can say that the ear muffs don't bother me, I just have to place the ear cups well - Get very loud, I use them as a speaker sometimes :) - Adjusts for big heads, it stretches and extends very far! - Build quality is nice, it's plastic and you can notice it but it's not as bad as other headsets - The side wheel on the back of the headset for sound control is great! I use it constantly and it's really nice to have!

Cons: - This is the main letdown: The top foam that protects your head isn't enough. After prolonged use, like for movies or gaming (anything more that 1h-1h30), you really start feeling the foam and it really hurts me. I just move it back my head and then forward again, but it really gets uncomfortable. It gives me headaches and it's definitely not supposed to do that!! :) - The wire is a bit short, and so walking around with them on is not really an option if you don't do like me and get an extension. - It's, as mentioned earlier, not wireless, which now that I use them daily, makes it a little uncomfortable.

Overall Review: - I like them now, but wouldn't buy them again... - Next time I'm going to get a wireless headset

What a beast!

Intel Core i7-10700F - Core i7 10th Gen Comet Lake 8-Core 2.9 GHz LGA 1200 65W Desktop Processor - BX8070110700F
Intel Core i7-10700F - Core i7 10th Gen Comet Lake 8-Core 2.9 GHz LGA 1200 65W Desktop Processor - BX8070110700F

Pros: - Blazing fast, will tear through anything I throw at it (see the Cinebench scores attached) - I video edit a lot and it's always right there with me - Stays nice and cool at idle and doesn't get too hot with my closed AIO loop (the pics have it when the thermal paste was a little under done) - 8 cores and 16 threads are amazing for gaming - SMT is great! I was looking for a CPU with it. (SMT is simultaneous multi threading and it means that every core has two threads instead of one thread per core)

Cons: - No integrated graphics may be a problem for certain people but since I have a discreet GPU it's fine and the $100CAD less is very nice compared to the 10700K or $50CAD compared to the 10700)

Overall Review: - I was looking at this CPU (which was a little on the high end of my budget) compared to the i5 10600K, but went with this one, because I do a lot of video editing in 4K and so the extra cores would do me nicely. - If you only need a processor for gaming, a 6-core i5 is still the perfect budget option (of course, if you're team blue :)

Amazing Power Supply

Seasonic FOCUS GX-1000, 1000W 80+ Gold, Full-Modular, Fan Control in Fanless, Silent, and Cooling Mode, 10 Year Warranty, Perfect Power Supply for Gaming and Various Application, SSR-1000FX.
Seasonic FOCUS GX-1000, 1000W 80+ Gold, Full-Modular, Fan Control in Fanless, Silent, and Cooling Mode, 10 Year Warranty, Perfect Power Supply for Gaming and Various Application, SSR-1000FX.

Pros: Pros: - It's a frickn THOUSANT WATTS!!! - It's perfect for flexing when there is NO WAY IN HEAVEN YOU NEED A 1000W (except if you're a person that thinks that two 3090's in SLI is worth it :) (and also somehow got two 3090's hahaha) - Certified 80+ Gold - Fits in my chassis perfectly - It comes with EVERY CABLE YOU WILL NEED, ZIP TIES AND VELCRO STRAPS!! - It won't let my power hungry 3070 beat it and make my games crash compared to my 650W PSU from before.

Cons: - I don't need 1000W, considering I was only able to get a 3070 (I know, a 3070 if not every GPU is EXTREMELY HARD to get right now!)

Overall Review: - It is an outstanding PSU. It's WAY overkill, but I love it! - Personally, my recommendation would be to get a lower wattage at a better efficiency for less money if you don't need 1000W!

BUY NOW!!

PulseLabz Guardian Series Gaming Chair - White/Black
PulseLabz Guardian Series Gaming Chair - White/Black

Pros: - Very comfortable - I can sleep in it :) cause it goes so flat - Rolls silently and is nice and smooth - Wide range of positions and heights for the chair - The arm rests basically go into any position you tell them to (front/back, side angle, up/down) - The first one I got, I think I broke it, but there was NO PROBLEM sending it back to PulseLabz and they paid for all of the shipping!! Man, I LOVE THEIR AND NEWEGG'S RETURN POLICY. ITS AMAZING!!! (I ship lots of stuff and I think it's such a big deal because with the size and weight of the chair, it must of cost them over $110 CAD to have me send them mine and them send me the old one, which they charged me nothing of. That is an amazing deal considering I didn't pay any restocking fees!)

Cons: - I am 5'10" and I'll make this clear: the chair is tall enough! But, the included lumbar and head rests aren't perfect for me and where I would want them to be.

Overall Review: - If you're wondering or on the edge to get this chair and the $300CAD range is your budget, go for it! I really love the chair and it's fun and comfortable to sit in!
