Pros: My motherboard automatically recognized and set the xmp for the ram. I noticed a huge improvement on my system.

Cons: None so far.

Overall Review: Yes I would recommend it. My system: Gigabyte X570 UD (latest bios) Amd Ryzen 5800x (AIO EK Basic 240) 32 gb Ram Samsung 970 pro 512 gb Radeon Vega 56 Sapphire Pulse Dual 1 tb WD HD 750 watt Seasonic Focus 80 gold

Most Critical Review

Not bad but does the job

BitFenix Spectre All Black 200mm Case Fan

Pros: Does good as an exhaust fan for pc cases that has mountings for it on the upper part of the case.

Cons: flimsy construction.

Overall Review: Does good for venting, but as for intake; doesn't pull in enough air flow even at maximum rpm. One good aspect its very quiet. I would have to give this product a C+

Pros: Well I chose this case as an upgrade for better airflow; my previous case was Antec P110 Luce. Don't get me wrong, the case was excellent quality but the airflow upfront was a little restrictive and a little heavy; putting in a a longer AIO can be a little problem. If you have big heat sinks on the motherboard and might run into the power cable for the cpu depending on the mobo you have.

Cons: The vertical tray for the 2.5" drives can be a problem fitting the motherboard power cable, the channel is a little narrow; if the lip came out about 1/4" more or angle outward provided your not gonna use cable extensions. The thumb screws on the cable side of the case needs to be a little longer to secure the side panel a little better.

Overall Review: Yes, I would recommended if you don't mind the faults and imperfections of the case.

You can't go wrong adding more USB ports.

Pros: Build quality is good. Provided 2 power cords, one for sata and the other standard 4 pin to choose. So far no incompatibility issues.

Cons: none so far.

Overall Review: Yes I would recommend it for the price point.

Best in the middle of the road.

Pros: Bought this on a budget; its not fast or slow but balanced, so far its been solid; I liked it enough I bought a 2nd one.

Cons: none so far

Overall Review: Excellent for the price point for the 1 tb. Yes I would recommend it if your on a budget.

Great so far

GIGABYTE X570 UD AMD Ryzen 3000 PCIe 4.0 SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.2 AMD X570 ATX Motherboard

Pros: Latest chipset and ports.. Update: I've been using this motherboard since I bought it in 2019 and running on the latest bios. Currently running 5800X, plus using an AIO to keep it cool running; it works like champ. For a no frills motherboard its been rock solid.

Cons: Kinda wish had more usb ports though; not a huge fan of bios layout...

Overall Review: If your on really tight budget this is a good board to use and it is compatible with Ryzen 5 1600 AF cpu that was released at the tail end of 2019; it uses the 12nm zen+ architecture. A good way to start a budget build if you are looking to upgrade the CPU further down the road
