Most Favorable Review

It's ok a decent 2060

GIGABYTE GeForce RTX 2060 6GB GDDR6 PCI Express 3.0 x16 ATX Video Card GV-N2060WF2OC-6GD R2
GIGABYTE GeForce RTX 2060 6GB GDDR6 PCI Express 3.0 x16 ATX Video Card GV-N2060WF2OC-6GD R2

Pros: RTX, not the reference card, with some tweaking comes within spitting distance of the 2070.

Cons: It's loud, and runs hot. I wasn't able to OC it to 2050 boost clock

Overall Review: If you want an RTX card and are on a budget this is your best bet. It's not the best 2060 out there as far as thermals or OC headroom.

Most Critical Review

Can't redeem the games

NVIDIA Gift - Wolfenstein: Youngblood and Control
NVIDIA Gift - Wolfenstein: Youngblood and Control

Pros: None, can't even use them.

Cons: Never received activation codes.

Overall Review: Can't really say if it's any good. Weird promotion, I can't even play the game, so don't understand why they promote it if I can't get it.

Pretty good entry level mechanical keyboard

Rosewill NEON K85 RGB Mechanical Gaming Keyboard with Brown Switches
Rosewill NEON K85 RGB Mechanical Gaming Keyboard with Brown Switches

Pros: RGB, backlit keycaps, ability to change keycaps with any cherry compatible keycap, brown switches.

Cons: Wrist rest support thing is kind of wonky and not very useful. Function keys without backlighting seem like they could fade.

Overall Review: A great keyboard for the price, coming from a plain jane membrane keyboard, this feels a lot better. It took me about a week for my brain to adapt to it. Typing is nicer, once you get used to the travel, and the tactile feedback, you start learning to not bottom out the keys. I got this one because I didn't want loud clicky blue keys, and I'm glad I got this one. The N-rollover feature is also nice as is the software that lets you customize the keys, some people find the calculator button odd, but those of us who work in office settings or deal with numbers find it convenient. Not to mention you can reprogram the button to do something else very easily through software. Speaking of software, I'm glad you don't need it at all to change the color or effects on the keyboard. The lighting is nice, not too bright, but noticeable even in day time. I'd highly recommend this, especially when it's on sale. If you're coming from a membrane keyboard and want a mechanical one, this one is great, no complaints other than the weird wrist support. Not a big deal, I took it off and used a foam one I had instead.

It's good but fragile

AMD Ryzen 5 3rd Gen - RYZEN 5 3600 Matisse (Zen 2) 6-Core 3.6 GHz (4.2 GHz Max Boost) Socket AM4 65W 100-100000031BOX Desktop Processor
AMD Ryzen 5 3rd Gen - RYZEN 5 3600 Matisse (Zen 2) 6-Core 3.6 GHz (4.2 GHz Max Boost) Socket AM4 65W 100-100000031BOX Desktop Processor

Pros: Better than older versions

Cons: No ability to tinker, chip will easily fry itself with an x570 board with anything but stock settings. Too much voltage being sent to vcore. My cpu died in a month with only PBO and auto OC enabled. RMA denied, had to eat the cost of a new CPU. Save your money, there are more stable reliable options out there, that won't fry themselves when you tinker a bit. Paying double for a CPU doesn't seem like a bargain in the end.

Overall Review: I'll go with Intel next time.

Very good fan, love it

Corsair ML120 PRO LED CO-9050043-WW 120 mm Blue LED 120mm Premium Magnetic Levitation PWM Fan
Corsair ML120 PRO LED CO-9050043-WW 120 mm Blue LED 120mm Premium Magnetic Levitation PWM Fan

Pros: LED is not over done and illuminates the whole fan instead of cheap LED dots at the corners. The performance of the fan is incredible, very quiet, moves a lot of air. I have this on a push pull config on a Gammax 400. This fan is doing the sucking, in a good way. I keep the other one running around 30% this one around 50-60%, no increase in noise that I can pick up, but my CPU temps dropped 10C, which is not insignificant. Before my Ryzen was getting into the 80's it's now pegged at 74 max with full on torture test running for 2 hours.

Cons: None

Overall Review: Good fan, you get what you pay for.
