Team Group T-FORCE CARDEA Solid State Hard Drive Review

I use this solid state drive in my home PC. It does exactly what it’s supposed to do. It’s fast enough and it operates well.  This drive boots up fast with the Windows operating system. If you would be interested in purchasing this solid state drive I would recommend it for a home PC, but would not recommend for a business or gamer. Generally you want something higher quality for that particular use. The T-FORCE CARDEA costs $23.99.

Intel Core i5-11400F Review

The Intel Core i5-11400F is the greatest value CPU I could find for my home PC today.  The Intel Core i5-11400F has an LGA 1200 socket. If this CPU is compatible with your motherboard, whether your PC is used for business or just for at home, I would highly recommend this CPU. Get This CPU here.

On Newegg this CPU currently costs $135.93.  Only thing about this CPU I would not use it if you are planning to use it for a gamer PC. It would not be the fastest or best option for that category.
