So Far So Good!

SABRENT 1TB Rocket 4 Plus NVMe 4.0 Gen4 PCIe M.2 Internal SSD Extreme Performance Solid State Drive (SB-RKT4P-1TB)

Pros: Nice Packaging

Overall Review: This baby is fast. I haven't had any problems with slow downs or temperature. Running on a Gigabyte B560M Aorus Pro AX. I'm Happy! Should have bought the 2TB version.

Pretty Nice Case!

MSI MPG GUNGNIR 111M Black Steel / Plastic / Tempered Glass ATX Mid Tower Computer Case
MSI MPG GUNGNIR 111M Black Steel / Plastic / Tempered Glass ATX Mid Tower Computer Case

Pros: Comes with good case fans (Three front RGBs, one rear non RGB). They are quiet and provide good airflow. Can fit a 160mm 850W PSU (Just Barely!) Can fit a large GPU (3070 ti EVGA Ultra) Can accommodate two 140mm fans on the top. Wide enough to accommodate a tall CPU air cooler. USB C!

Cons: I whish the bottom shroud hiding the PSU was removable. The top of case is cramped if you are using a tall air cooled CPU cooler. Some sharp edges. It's a pain to remove the front decorate cover to get access to the magnetic air filter protecting the front three fans. Wish that front cover was easier to remove.

Overall Review: Overall I would recommend this case! I can't say it's way better than a $50-$60 case, I think the sweet spot for this case is around $70 to $80

Very Nice Performance to Price Ratio

Enermax ETS-F40 ARGB CPU Air Cooler, 200W+ TDP for Intel/ AMD Universal Socket, AM4 & AM5 / LGA 1700/1200/1151, 4 Direct Contact Heat Pipes, 140mm Silent PWM Fan - AM5 & LGA1700 Compatible

Pros: It looks really good, it's quiet, and it keep by i7-11700K cool. I don't overclock so I couldn't tell you how well it performs under those conditions. But for the average user I would say that this performs very nicely. Installation was easy and the instruction manual was good too!

Cons: Can't say I really see a con on this CPU cooler. Buyers should just know what they are buying. If you want a high performance cooler because you are constantly going to be running your CPU at 100% and even overclocking, then maybe look elsewhere. If anything, I would say enermax could of speeded up the fan a little bit. A little more noise for a little better cooling? IDK

Overall Review: I would definitely recommend this to people who are looking to put together a decent budget build!

Great Memory

G.SKILL 2GB (2 x 1GB) DDR3 1333 (PC3 10600) Dual Channel Kit Desktop Memory Model F3-10600CL9D-2GBPK
G.SKILL 2GB (2 x 1GB) DDR3 1333 (PC3 10600) Dual Channel Kit Desktop Memory Model F3-10600CL9D-2GBPK

Pros: performs at it's rated specs with no problems. Running at 850mhz with 4,4,4,12 timings... So things are good with the memory. Looks good too!! I have it running on a Gigabyte P35 motherboard, there were no compatibility issues.

Cons: COST. There seems to be other PC1066 modules out there for slightly less.

Overall Review: Decent memory overall I am very happy. First time using Gskill, and I'm not disappointed.

GREAT MEMORY!!!

Patriot 2GB (2 x 1GB) DDR 433 (PC 3500) Dual Channel Kit Desktop Memory Model PDC2G3500LLK
Patriot 2GB (2 x 1GB) DDR 433 (PC 3500) Dual Channel Kit Desktop Memory Model PDC2G3500LLK

Pros: Operates as rated with 2.5/2.6 volts. Using an Asus A8N-SLI, popped this memory in and the board had no problem recognizing it at it's specified speeds 2-3-2-5 1T.

Cons: Doesn't seem to overclock past 217mhz at stock timings.

Overall Review: I will loosen timings and try to OC. But, we didn't buy this memory for loose timings, so I might just have to settle for rated speeds. Good memory anyway.

Great price, decent overclock

Comments: running 2 sticks of 512mb dual channel at 217/434 mhz with 7-3-3-2.5 and stable. Got some aluminum heatspreaders on them. I could probably push it a little more, but I am okay with the extra I already got out of it! Automatically recognized at 200/400 mhz dual channel! This is a great deal for the price. Beats my old pc3200 samsung mem.
