An incredibly good processor! Switched to this from a 1700 and can feel a very noticeable difference in performance. Without any settings changed, the clock speeds up to 4.0 to 4.2 GHz without any settings changed. This processor is therefore a very good choice for someone who wants to avoid overclocking. Apart from a slightly high idle temperature, there is nothing I can complain about.

Uses this with an R7 3700X. Very good cooling. With a clock speed of around 4.0 to 4.2, the temperature stays at 40-50 idle, 60-70 under load. The design is also a big plus. The LED lighting in the glass gives it a design that fits perfectly in gaming computers with a glass panel. My only major problem has to do with the installation. The AIO came with a very strange AM4 bracket that required an extra pair of motherboard brackets. Since I did not own these, I had to order them from England ... If you look at pictures of the cooler on the internet, most people seem to use a regular bracket instead of the one I got, which makes me quite confused. Quite simply a very complicated and impractical installation if you drive AM4, otherwise a really great AIO!

Great mouse! Have only owned gaming mice at 100g + and switching to this at 68g was an incredible difference. The low weight is probably what I love most about the mouse. The shape is very good but still a little too big for my hands. Probably best suited for people with long hands. Very suitable for palm or claw grip, but would never recommend it for fingertip grip. The actual build quality of the mouse feels unusually good for being built the way it is. Have owned mice from much larger companies that were of clearly lower quality. Can also not hear any rattle when I shake it. My only problem with the quality is that you can feel a slight crack if you press against the sides. However, the quality can probably vary greatly from mouse to mouse. Something I was not as impressed with are the buttons on the mouse. The right button feels heavy, the scroll wheel can be moved to the left and the rear side button has a very rough pre-travel. But beyond that, the buttons are fully approved. The LED lighting is very strong and nice, but at certain angles light can shine through the holes. On the whole, I am very capable with the mouse. If the buttons were better and the mouse was a little smaller, it would have been perfect for me. If you have bigger hands, like ergo mice and low weight, this can very possibly be the best mouse you can choose.

Totally okay game mouse. The mouse feels quite small and therefore it is well suited for claw and fingertip grip. If you have medium-sized or larger hands and use palm grip, I would have recommended Mamba or Deathadder instead. Construction quality, however, does not feel superb as there is noticeable rattle. My biggest problem with the mouse is the very heavy weight. However, this is a matter of taste, so if you like heavier mice, this can be a very good choice.

Bought this to be able to use my Dualshock 4 with my gaming computer, and for this purpose it works great. Went to use directly and the signal seems to be good. EDIT: After about a month, I have noticed a drastic deterioration in the signal. Can still be used reasonably well, but if I am too far away (more than 1-2 meters), turn the control or have some obstacle between control and adapter, it stops working completely.

Have owned these for almost 4 years and have never been more satisfied with a technology product. Absolutely incredible for the price. Comfort is superb and sits gently on your head. Can use for a whole day and not feel the slightest. However, the leather puffs can get a little warm then until then. The sound is of unusually high quality for a gaming headset of this price range. Very loud in detail where you can hear small details easily. The sound is V-shaped and is very suitable for casual music listening, games and movies / series. The middle register is not as up-front which is expected but can also be negative for some. The mic is not fantastic, but in this price range they are among the very best. One thing I especially have to give cred to is the cable. After four years of use, I still have no problem at all with the cable, which I see as very positive as the cable on all my previous gaming headsets (Steelseries & Roccat) has completely broken within a year. Some disadvantages with the headset: 7.1 The choice feels quite unnecessary. Sounds usually worse than normal. There is no software to change the sound in which can be a big minus for some. On the whole, I think this is a pair of fantastic headphones where you get as much as almost goes for what you pay. Highly recommend.

These earbuds are VERY large which makes them only suitable for people with very large ears. I have small ears myself and when I use them they push until it hurts. How they sit in the ears also affects the sound (especially the bass) tremendously. You need to find the perfect position for the right sound, but in small ears they will move from this position by themselves. For people with big ears, these earbuds may be among the best, but otherwise I would never ever recommend them.

Very fast for the price! Have overclocked myself to 3.6 GHz and it flows smoothly. Really recommend this to people who just thought about playing and browsing the internet. Also recommends buying a Ryzen processor instead of an Intel when they are cheaper, pulling less power, and sometimes faster. This usually takes around 50% of use in a challenging game while an i5 7500 is over 85%!

Great keyboard. Razer's yellow switch is, in my opinion, the best linear switch in the market. Is incredibly fast and sensitive and can therefore be compared to Cherry MX Speed. The only major drawbacks I can find are the high price and the macro buttons on the left that were on the V2 are not on these. Instead, they have switched to media buttons in the top corner. However, it would have been great to have both. If you are looking for a gaming keyboard with fast, linear switches, minimalist design and good lighting then this is a very good choice.
