ASRock did it right1/18/2020 12:20:20 AM

Pros: Best vega 56 blower card by far Install the latest AMD drivers and your golden, don't undervolt it...It's great how it is and your only going to cause problems. Been running this card over a year and its a champ at 1080p. I almost max out my 165hz monitor with med setting on PUBG. Soild 144fps

Overall Review: At under 280 it's a great deal...even in Q1 2020. Sold me because of freesync. GTX 1660 ti is very close...depends on what you want though. It's got more ponys than you think, don't be tricked. Research the benchmarks

Great value GPU-RX 5704/9/2019 6:43:46 PM

Pros: 2 free games at the time of purchase on 4/3/2019 Great 1080p performance Can play all games at 1080p med/high settings 60+fps Its a GIGABYTE card. A name you can trust

Cons: You have to wait until your card arrives and install it to redeem your games, but its easy if you can follow simple instructions..it seems some people don't know how to do that. You can get your games people...Its actually very easy.

Overall Review: Very solid GPU, If your in the market for a new sub 150 GPU...this is it. Blows a GTX 1050 ti away!

The Q1 2019 Mid Range Champ3/30/2019 3:13:07 AM

Pros: 35% improvement over the 1060 6gb at 1080p. This card is a champ. same price as a 1060 6gb but way better than my old evga 1060 6gb. runs cool and quite. At 68f room temp my idle was 37c and 67c at load with 100% utilization. I would hit 144hz on pubg at 1080p high/ultra AA and textures/low shadows with dips down to 110-120hz. With the GTX 1660ti Time Spy scored 6147 with Ryzen 5 1600@stock, 16gb ddr4@2394mhz, 250 GB WDC My GTX 1060 6gb scored a 4421 with the same setup Simplicity of the card is great. The plastic back plate almost feels like a fiberglass plastic composite. Very rigid and not unlike most plastic you would think of. I would get this card over a RTX 2060 for the price at the date of this review. I would skip the GTX 1660 unless your budget is really tight and your still running a GTX 970 or like card.

Cons: In my opinion the 8pin power pci-e is in a weird spot, but it looks fine with my cable linking up from the bottom and it kinda helps with GPU sag. The closer to the bracket the better I guess.

Overall Review: If your upgrading from a 970/1050ti/rx570 or equivalent I would definitely recommend paying the money for this card. If you already have a 1060 6gb/rx 580 and you are on a budget maybe wait a bit. Or buy this and sell your old card to make up the cost.

All you need for a great price1/22/2019 4:28:57 AM

Pros: 4 great fans included good build quality glass side panel lots of room to work mesh dust filter top magnetic dust filter

Cons: hard drive tray is metal on metal (metal screws go into the side of drive and then directly contact the metal tray) although I havent noticed any noise from vibrating

Overall Review: great case over all

very nice case10/9/2018 12:49:14 AM

Pros: Comes with a screwdriver...nice one I will say 1x120mm red led fan & 1x140mm red led fan lots of room for cables designed well

Cons: front mesh cover broke (one of the pins, not a huge deal...still clips in as a whole, but be careful though)

Overall Review: I gave it a try and liked it, Try it for yourself.

Underrated Budget card10/9/2018 12:41:37 AM

Pros: Simple but effective design. No extra power connectors needed. $105.99 (about 40-50 dollars less than a 1050 2gb)

Cons: 896 Stream Processors versus similar but more costly cards with 1024 Stream Processors? couldn't tell you what difference it really makes at this level.

Overall Review: I bought this card for a budget build I'm doing with the Intel G5500. I tested this card for about an hour running PUBG with the following hardware: Ryzen 3 1300X @3.7ghz 8GB of single channel DDR4 @2400mhz WD 1TB 7200rpm 64 cache Hard-drive Windows 10 pro 64bit MSI B350M Gaming Pro I found at default settings (1920x1080p on medium, with view distance on low and shadows on low) I was getting around 45fps during normal game play just running around and looting buildings. During battles in towns or high density areas I found it to avg. around 32-38fps with all the effects going on. Very playable I will say, at times I would forget I was running a 560. You forget how playable a solid 30+ fps really is. Granted I'm used to my 100+ with the 1080 but for around 100 dollars this is a great card for entry level budget builds. Max temp was 70C/158F in the case with the side panel off. Nice little GPU, well done ASrock.

Great sub 100 case9/7/2018 9:30:43 PM

Pros: Comes with RGB controller that plugs into 1 single molex so you dont have to use any mobo fan headers. 8 RGB fan headers on controller if i remember correctly. 3 SSD mounts (5 if your use HDD cages). Fans are nice that come with it. lots of space under the PSU/hard drive cage. plenty of room for cable management. Made well and looks like a pricey case for not that much Great case over all

Cons: I believe with the 4 stock RGB fans the air flow is a little below what it should be for a case this size. Not much room for fresh air intake at the front but its not bad. I would add two 120mm fans to the top and see what that does. No over heating problems as of now though.

Overall Review: Kinda not a big deal but your mobo cant control your fan speed bassed off temp because your RGB fans with this case are hooked up to the controller that runs straight off molex power, not through your mobo. So they just run at the same speed 24/7, but you can change their colors from the case button and cycle through colors/color patterns.

What budget CPU?7/25/2018 5:59:12 PM

Pros: Very fast CPU, not far behind a 7th gen I7. Cheap Can run using stock fan and heat-stink 8th gen, new chip-set.

Cons: for 64 bucks, doesn't have any .

Overall Review: I have Ryzen 3's and 5's, but this G5400 is awesome for keeping a build low in price...yet still able to keep up the pace.

1050 for less7/24/2018 11:23:38 PM

Pros: This RX 560 LP OC is just 2nd behind a GTX 1050ti. I put this RX 560 up against my MSI GTX 1050ti and my bench scores tested within 5% if not less. (16400 on skydriver for the 1050 and 14800 for the RX 560) For 120 USD on sale shipped vs a GTX 1050ti you can't beat it does not need a 6pin power connector

Cons: fans always run, but they are very silent.

Overall Review: 30-50 fps pubg 1080p, default settings. 65+ fps 720p high fortnite runs at 60+ fps 1080p default settings Very good card for a budget, I would buy over a 1050 right now.

Nice budget case4/29/2018 1:01:18 AM

Pros: Cheap Nice quality Looks great!

Cons: you have to be careful not to scratch the plastics

Overall Review: Make sure you mount the front fans INSIDE the case, not outside between the metal and the front cover. Airflow is best this way, I don't have a problem with a lack of airflow with this case in that configuration. If anything you get good pressure and the rear fan spins a little faster in result. Great exhaust

Great entry lvl AIO4/15/2018 10:22:12 PM

Pros: Worked great out of the box, no problems noted. I did change out the fan with a Corsair 120mm case fan Price is good Seems to be build pretty well

Cons: I had to place some 3M rubber sticky spacers on the motherboard to increase the distance from the mobo circuits. The black plastic ones that were included rested on top a small circuit, I was scared under pressure it might break off. It was an intel h110 M-ITX mobo. Might have been fine but i wanted the base to be level, one corner was higher than the rest because of the circuit that one corner was resting on.

Overall Review: Keep my i7 6700 20 degress cooler under load

Nice medium level card3/28/2018 7:01:02 AM

Pros: Nice LEDS you can control, note they don't change color Good for 1080 gaming at med/high settings for all games out right now. it won't break the bank Runs PUBG well, gives my 1060 6gb a run for its money...especially with GPU prices right now.

Cons: none for what this card is

Overall Review: overclocking really isn't necessary for this card, but go ahead if your about it

Good value RAM3/28/2018 6:53:08 AM

Pros: 8gb at around 80 bucks in 2018, DDR4 2133. Stream line RAM, nothing fancy. Note there is no heatspreader, it's an aluminum sticker.

Cons: none so far, works great for what it is.

Overall Review: Works great so far, make sure your specs match up.
