Works great!2/24/2021 10:53:07 AM

Pros: Has lots of cables. I like the extra modular cables because they are flat and more flexible.

Cons: The permanent cables do not have a lot of flexibility close to the connectors because of the tight shrink wrap.

Overall Review: It does the job!

Cheap but usable2/24/2021 10:46:42 AM

Cons: Does not have very much room to work in. It does not come with screws for GPU or other expansion cards. It has a plastic cover that goes over the expansion card lock-down screws, which doesn’t make any sense to me.

Overall Review: This is an absolute last resort PC case. Don’t buy if you don’t have extra parts.

Great Mother Board2/1/2021 2:11:26 PM

Pros: It has good power delivery with solid heat sinks. The Rear I/O is solid with everything you need including WiFi/Bluetooth antenna. It has Q-flash plus so you can update the bios if needed.

Cons: The RGB Fusion software is not compatible with MSI or Corsair that I could see. All the RGB components have to be programed separately.

Overall Review: Other than that I can't complain. It's a solid PCB and it works.

It's IPS!1/29/2021 5:07:38 PM

Pros: Very good quality image.

Cons: Display interface menu is okay. It always takes me a minute to figure out how all the options work. They should have an instructional video to go with it.

Overall Review: You can't go wrong with IPS and High refresh rates!

Boost Clock works great!5/5/2020 8:50:06 PM

Pros: Very fast chip compared to my old Phenom II processor.

Cons: Had to do a lot of research to figure this beast out.

Overall Review: So, I am updating this post from the old one, a month or so ago. I hope this helps some people out with the boost clock delima. When I first installed this chip on my ASUS TUF Gaming X570 mobo, I was using the stock cooler. I was getting a flat 4.1 GHz clock speed all the time. Just a few days ago I bought a EVGA CLC 280 cpu cooler and now I am getting between 4.3-4.4 GHz clock while gaming. Looking at the differences on the MSI Afterburner and HWMonitor software I can see that the CPU is now throttling while idle. Which I believe that is what it is designed to do. So, the temperature drop with the new cpu cooler is allowing the cpu to boost much higher. In conclusion I would suggest using an aftermarket cooler for higher boost clocks.

No Issues yet4/4/2020 9:14:39 AM

Overall Review: I'm using this card with a Ryzen 5 3600X, ASUS TUF X570 Gaming Plus, 32GB-3600 RAM, 1440P x 95Hz 27inch IPS Monitor. I have only played Metro Exodus @ Ultra detail and I get 100+ FPS. GPU runs @ 70 C throughout game as per MSI Aftreburner. I have had the game freeze a couple times, but that could be the MSI afterburner and the fact I am playing through Steam.

Nothing like the Picture!4/2/2020 3:30:08 PM

Pros: It's definitely an ARES M1 Keyboard.

Cons: It looks nothing like the keyboard in the picture. No red keys and it's not the ares model in the picture.

Overall Review: Very deceptive! The keys are very sticky, I guess that's why it's cheap!

Great PSU3/26/2020 7:44:43 AM

Pros: Works great and has eco mode. Plenty of cable options. Compact size PSU as well fits in most cases.

Cons: Cables are a little on the short side, which may limit your tower size. Or you could get the extension cables.

Overall Review: Very quiet and efficient PSU. I marked down for the shorter cables.

Good RAM3/18/2020 9:52:21 AM

Pros: It works.

Cons: My ASUS MOB reads this DRAM at 2133mhz but in DOCP profile it shows 3600mhz. Not sure if it is really running at the higher speed?

Overall Review: Overall it works!

Great for all current games3/18/2020 9:45:48 AM

Pros: Runs well with all games to a limit.

Cons: Some of the newer games can't be played at ultra settings (i.e. Metro Exodus) but it plays all games that I know of at the right settings.

Overall Review: This graphics card is maxed out with my Ryzen 5 chip only around 30% or less usage.

Very finiky bios indeed!3/8/2020 12:56:20 PM

Pros: After getting through the boot process from updating the bios it works fine. Although I haven't had a chance to try games on it yet. I'll update later.

Cons: As other people have stated before, the bios doesn't detect the DRAM properly at all, even with QVL specs. I tried tinkering in the BIOS with the speed of my DRAM and it caused my computer to blue screen crash. I then attemped to update the BIOS from 1005 to 1405 and it booted to the BIOS again. I then tried to change the DRAM speed again and rebooted. I got to the yellow LED indicator on the mother board and had fans running but no video. So I had to reset the CMOS, be sure to hold the jumper on there for at least 10 seconds--I'm pretty sure thats what fixed it, but I did have the ASUS DVD attached to a 3.0 USB port, but I didn't hear the disk running. I then restarted the computer after removing a couple of the DIMMs just to make sure 4 DIMMs wasn't the problem, and I finally got back into the bios and set the defaults F5. I also tried the DOCP profile setting, which I didn't try before and that worked. The computer is now running without crashing, so far.

Overall Review: I have a Ryzen 5 3600X G.Skill-Ripjaws 16GB DDR4-3600 (8GBx2) I have 4 of these sticks but I will wait to add the others. GTX 1660 GPU 6GB WD_Black SN750 500GB NVMe M.2 Seagate 2TB HDD EVGA SuperNova GA 750W PSU

Great MB for Ryzen 5 260012/19/2019 11:55:57 AM

Pros: I love it so far very cool look and easily installs in to the cooler master MB510L. Great for the black and red theme PC.

Cons: The only issue I have right now is the bios settings app is new and I haven't figured out how to adjust the fan speeds. I am using the CPU pump fan plug for a case fan and switched to DC mode, but I still can't lower the fan speed on it.

Overall Review: Everything else works as advertised so far without over-clocking the CPU. Had it for a week now.

Very cool design!12/19/2019 11:47:08 AM

Pros: Lots of room for lots of parts. Easy access panels allow for fast installation of parts and cable routing. There is plenty of room for fans and supplied hardware makes for easy installation.

Cons: The fans I used had short power cables, which made it difficult to reach all the MB fan plugs. Not really related to case.

Overall Review: Sleek and clean design...great for the beginner!
