Pros: Decent price
Lots of modular connections
Lots of modular cables
Cons: Had a bad SATA cable in the bunch, which was causing major issues with the power supply.
Overall Review: This PSU was great at first, but after about 4 days of running on my server I noticed it was extremely hot to the touch and components were failing throughout the morning. I powered off the server due to PSU heat concerns, especially considering the server was only pulling about 500w total power from the wall. I'm very concerned damage may have been caused to my components, but I don't have a spare PSU laying around to test.
Components are good. After some trouble shooting I found out whenever one of the SATA cables was plugged in it was causing all of the issues above. Going to get ahold of Super Flower for a replacement. Would give it 3 1/2 stars if possible.
Pros: Worked out of the box.
Performance for price is great.
Cons: Software could be better.
No USB-C header.
Overall Review: I have had no issues with this board at all. Installed it and booted right up. I was replacing an older i5 6600K and ASUS Z170 board, with a Ryzen 5 3600 due to bottle-necks is some games with my GTX 1080. Paired well with my Patriot Viper DDR4 4000 RAM. Only real complaint is no USB-C header on the board, but I'm just going to add an expansion card down the road.
Seeing much better performance on Insurgency: Sandstorm and COD: Modern Warfare with no overclocking yet.
Giving this a 5 Star since the price and performance far outweighs the few cons.
Note: Older Corsair liquid coolers do not come with the AM4 bracket so you will have to order one to use with this board and AM4 CPUs.
Pros: Easy to set up.
Very bright and accurate colors.
Cons: Stand lets the monitor wobble a little too much.
Overall Review: I'm really happy with this ultra-wide so far. It has worked flawlessly and made my coding classes easier with the extra work space. My only complaint is the stand, it lets the monitor wobble a little more than I would like, but that's just nitpicking. 4 1/2 Eggs for me.
Pros: Super quiet and run EXTREMELY cool. Been pushing it on the The Witcher 3 a lot already.
Overall Review: Buy it now.
Pros: FAST!, cool, quiet
Overall Review: This thing is wicked fast and overclocking is super easy. I couldn't be happier with the performance. Liquid cooler instructions were worthless though, just figure it out yourself it's very easy. (If anything they instructions will just confuse you) Highly recommend this to anyone who is considering a new build and wants high performance with out all the cost of the i7's, the benchmarks are almost identical and I got this thing on sale for $199.99 you can't beat that price.
Pros: Easy install, very quick, price
Overall Review: Easy to install and the heat sinks are very nice. No issues at all. A+
