The Acer FA100 solid-state drive is an entry-level M.2 NVMe SSD. In our extensive testing, we saw decent performance that matches competing SSDs. The SLC cache is also big enough to soak up the largest write bursts, and there's no thermal throttling.

The Intel Core i7-11700KF has the same 8-core/16-thread configuration as the much more expensive Core i9-11900K, which it can almost match out of the box, and beat with a little bit of tweaking. Thanks to its very reasonable price point of only $390, the 11700KF could also be a tempting alternative to the Ryzen 5 5600X or Ryzen 7 5800X.

The Phanteks Eclipse P200A ITX is both the smallest and most affordable product of the Eclipse line. It still features the fine metal mesh and continues to focus on steel as opposed to plastic as a material, but also has a few nifty surprises within, which one would not expect from an enclosure that costs $50 in today's tariff-burdened market.
