The Throne

Rosewill Throne - Black ATX Full Tower Gaming Computer Case - Supports E-ATX / XL-ATX, Up to 8 Fans
Rosewill Throne - Black ATX Full Tower Gaming Computer Case - Supports E-ATX / XL-ATX, Up to 8 Fans

Pros: -The front of the case presents a beautiful look, while being both aggressive with the red LED's and tall, drawn face. -There's so many expansion slots, I think this case can easily grow with me until the year 2020. -The SECC Steel is quality. I think a panel can double as a weapon if there's ever an intruder. -Fan controller's are conveniently placed and a nice addition to what I otherwise would not purchace(if it had not come factory) -Front Panel cables are appropriately labeled positive and negative (My previous case had some guesswork to the cables, which made reinstalling my mobo a breeze on this case) -Grommets are frequently located to pass cables through in the most convenient places ie. One right next to the power supply, another where the 24 pin cable would reattach to the mobo etc... -Push-to-Open front panel appears to be less prone to wear and tear than other cases that have you slide the panel open

Cons: -I found plastic chunks inside the case when it arrived. I made nothing of it, since I assumed it was a part of the front fans which I plan on replacing in the future for a different color. After reading other reviews saying the side panel plexiglass was faulty, I discovered much the same. One corner can be physically pushed into the case, since it doesn't have the plastic backing that broke off. -On a personal level, since this could also be due to my stupidity, but I had A LOT of trouble lining up the mobo with the standoff holes from my rear I/O panel knocking every alignment off by a fraction of an inch. -This case does have nice cable management, but the standing space behind the mobo is about half an inch. Cable's still fit through fine, but I'm never a fan of having my cables acting like sardines in a can. -In addition, the slider to raise and lower the rear fins broke almost immediately. Fixing it wasn't an issue, I only needed to take off the top panel and re-put the screw back in the hole it fell out of, with a piece of reinforcing plastic that fell off with it too. The screw screw's in continuously, so I know it'll be a problem again in the future, but a larger screw should fix that problem when the time comes.

Overall Review: Overall I'm VERRRY happy with this case. It presents a look that I find isn't too "flashy" and has plenty of upgrade room. I consider my con's minor to my overall feelings regarding the case, but I still found the con's worthy of -1 egg

Great mouse!

Logitech G502 Proteus Spectrum RGB Tunable Gaming Mouse  (910-004615)
Logitech G502 Proteus Spectrum RGB Tunable Gaming Mouse (910-004615)

Pros: Great mouse, super easy setup and bought it at a good price. I personally like the scroll wheel, when you gotta scroll down it FLIES down, but I understand other complaints about it

Cons: None, I do have a bad habit of clicking the two buttons to the left of Left Mouse click, but that's on me

Overall Review: Gotta admit, I wish I found this mouse before purchasing my keyboard and headset from a different brand. The Logitech software that controls the mouse functions and lighting also integrates with Logitech keyboard and headsets. It's real easy to use. Just wish I could've taken advantage of Logitech software controlling my headset and keyboard as well

Comfy and quality!

Astro A40 TR Headset + MixAmp Pro TR for PC, MAC, Xbox One and Nintendo Switch
Astro A40 TR Headset + MixAmp Pro TR for PC, MAC, Xbox One and Nintendo Switch

Pros: -This headset is really comfy to wear for extended periods and doesn't push my ears into my glasses too hard (my typical complaint against most headsets) -The sound quality is great too - definitely worth spending a little extra on

Cons: -Setup on xbox one can be a little confusing, and I'm still trying to figure out how to increase my own voice volume level - The two knobs control Master Volume and the other is for balancing between game volume and voice chat volume, but nothing for your own voice level...

Overall Review: -I bought the Astro A40 for pc and xbox one gaming. The current title of the product sounds like it is for pc, with the additional benefit of also working on xbox, but the package I was shipped said it was For Xbox One gaming. Granted the model I received works for both pc and xbox one platforms, the title on the box leaves a slight moment of fear of opening the ups package that you have received the wrong item. There is another model that has an xbox adapter built directly in, and I found it strange that the model I got (with no adapter) has the box for xbox one.

Fantastic CPU Cooler!

Cooler Master V8 GTS High Performance CPU Cooler, Horizontal Vapor Chamber, 8 Heatpipes, Aluminum Fins, Dual 120mm Fans, Red LED, AMD /Intel LGA1200/1151/2066
Cooler Master V8 GTS High Performance CPU Cooler, Horizontal Vapor Chamber, 8 Heatpipes, Aluminum Fins, Dual 120mm Fans, Red LED, AMD /Intel LGA1200/1151/2066

Pros: I had one of these in my main build for about two years. I recently built a watercooled rig and the V8 GTS' cooling power is on par, if not better than the temperatures I see compared to watercooling. I rarely saw temperatures climb above 45C during gaming and 38C when idling

Cons: This thing is huge! No need to take off an egg for that though. I was well aware of the size before purchasing, but this thing WILL cover up slots. My top PCI-E slot is unusable after installation, and to swap out Ram would require me to remove the V8 GTS first

Overall Review: The V8 GTS is the "cherry on top" for your build. It should be installed last, when you know your build is complete. I've received multiple comments from people in awe from the size of it alone - aside from its looks.

Great Product

Rosewill Audio Pro RHM-6308 USB Connector Circumaural Gaming Headset
Rosewill Audio Pro RHM-6308 USB Connector Circumaural Gaming Headset

Pros: I've always been a fan of Rosewill products, simply because they always provide good quality. When I first purchased the headset, I thought the sound quality would be mediocre at best(due to the low price compared to others) but I was literally blown away at how awesome the sound is.

Cons: This is my second Rosewill headset. The first one broke within 30 days and the return shipping cost half of what I paid, which at that point it was more worth it to purchase a new one. (The first headset broke due to some type of damaged cable where the wire enters the earpiece.)

Overall Review: Granted I'm not thrilled I had to buy the headset twice, but I stand by Rosewill's quality all the time and consider this to be a hiccup with their craftsmanship.

Love it for the price

Logitech MK320 2.4 GHz Wireless Keyboard and Mouse Combo - Black
Logitech MK320 2.4 GHz Wireless Keyboard and Mouse Combo - Black

Pros: Very lightweight and issue free.

Cons: Little bummed out that there's no light indicator for the Caps Lock. I always have to double check my typing before sending messages.

Overall Review: For one slight issue with it, this is definetly a great buy.
