Really good desktop memory

G.SKILL Flare X Series 16GB (2 x 8GB) 288-Pin DDR4 SDRAM DDR4 3200 (PC4 25600) AMD X370 / B350 Memory (Desktop Memory) Model F4-3200C14D-16GFX
G.SKILL Flare X Series 16GB (2 x 8GB) 288-Pin DDR4 SDRAM DDR4 3200 (PC4 25600) AMD X370 / B350 Memory (Desktop Memory) Model F4-3200C14D-16GFX

Pros: I purchased first 2X8 kit on April 22, 2020. Paired with Asus X470 Rog Strix-F and Ryzen 7 2700. Set timings to 3200 CL14 with no issues. Purchased second 2X8 kit on April 30, 2020 to go to 32GB. Installed them and system is running at 3200 CL14 with no issues, with all four slots populated. They just work. I recently moved from a AMD Ryzen system mentioned above to a Intel system, Asus Z490-E & i7-10700K, and I have been able to run these in a 4X8 configuration at 4000mhz with timings at 17-17-17-37 @ 1.35V and my system has been stable. I have had a increase in performance while gaming at these speeds and timings. I haven't tried to tighten the timings more or see if I am able to increase speeds while keeping my system stable.

Cons: It is more expensive compared to higher latency ram. Other than that none.

Overall Review: I've used ram with the same speed rating, 3200, but with higher latency, CL16, and while benchmarks only show a marginal jump, at best, everything has been smoother and more responsive with 3200 CL14. Even though this set of ram is more expensive it just works and it's been fuss free. The saying is still true you get what you pay for. I would recommend this ram kit.

Beast of a GPU

ASUS ROG Strix NVIDIA GeForce RTX 3080 Ti OC Edition Gaming Graphics Card (PCIe 4.0, 12GB GDDR6X, HDMI 2.1, Axial-tech Fan Design, 2.9-Slot, Super Alloy Power II, ASUS Auto-Extreme Technology)
ASUS ROG Strix NVIDIA GeForce RTX 3080 Ti OC Edition Gaming Graphics Card (PCIe 4.0, 12GB GDDR6X, HDMI 2.1, Axial-tech Fan Design, 2.9-Slot, Super Alloy Power II, ASUS Auto-Extreme Technology)

Pros: - Runs cool and quiet no matter what I'm doing - pictures don't do the card justice - it's a nice looking GPU - very well built, it has some weight to it - the rgb lighting looks good. it is not in your face and it's not super bright where it's blinding you

Cons: - price but this is the new msrp, if you have another gpu sell it and/or mine to help offset the costs

Overall Review: - if you are able to get one of these cards do so. i was fortunate to get picked in the Newegg Shuffle - check the room you have in your case. it's a big card - it's a trimmed down 3090 even though it says 3080 ti. just compare the specs to a 3090.

Great product

G.SKILL TridentZ RGB Series 64GB (4 x 16GB) DDR4 3600 (PC4 28800) Desktop Memory Model F4-3600C16Q-64GTZR
G.SKILL TridentZ RGB Series 64GB (4 x 16GB) DDR4 3600 (PC4 28800) Desktop Memory Model F4-3600C16Q-64GTZR

Pros: - Samsung B die - installed all four ram modules turned on xmp in my bios for the rated speed and timings and booted up no problem on my asus z490 rog strix e motherboard - been able to tighten timings, with all four ram modules installed, to 3600 speed CL 14 at 1.45V. been stable with no issues in my intel system. - Also, as many already know, the rgb gives a FPS boost. :)

Cons: - costs more than non Samsung B die

Overall Review: - I would recommend this product. The benchmark test won't show much of an improvement between Samsung B die ram and non Samsung B die ram; however, my computer is faster and more responsive because the cas latency is lower at a higher speed. it's a noticeable difference. I've used non Samsung B die ram before, it works just fine, but you can't tune those like you can Samsung B die.

Great PSU!

Super Flower Leadex V Gold PRO 1000W ATX 80 PLUS GOLD Certified Power Supply, Smallest 130mm 1000W ATX PSU, 10 Years Warranty, Patent Super Connectors, Full Modular With Ultra-Flexible Flat Ribbon Cab
Super Flower Leadex V Gold PRO 1000W ATX 80 PLUS GOLD Certified Power Supply, Smallest 130mm 1000W ATX PSU, 10 Years Warranty, Patent Super Connectors, Full Modular With Ultra-Flexible Flat Ribbon Cab

Pros: - very quiet even during gaming - universal connectors. for example, i plugged in the GPU cables closer to my GPU as my case has a spot in the PSU shroud for the GPU cable to be run through. this also helped with cable management. - the cables are flat and flexible - the cables are a good length - cable extensions work just fine with the included cables. i use extensions mainly to give things a cleaner look. I had them installed with my prior PSU and didn't want to remove them. - various voltage protections - the cables connect into the PSU and other PC components very easily. I've had other PSU's where the cables didn't connect as easily even though they were being connected correctly.

Cons: - nothing

Overall Review: - Super Flower is a reputable OEM - used to make some very good EVGA PSU's - I would definitely recommend this PSU to others especially if you are looking for a 1000W - I've had no issues running my i9 and RTX 3000 series GPU - I would absolutely purchase another Super Flower PSU - Leadex V Gold is listed in tier A (low priority units) on the PSU tier list 2021. mainly because there are very few reviews on the Leadex V Gold line of PSU's. - Do not hesitate to purchase this especially when it's on sale.

Really nice RTX 3070

ASUS TUF Gaming GeForce RTX 3070 8GB GDDR6 PCI Express 4.0 Video Card TUF-RTX3070-O8G-GAMING
ASUS TUF Gaming GeForce RTX 3070 8GB GDDR6 PCI Express 4.0 Video Card TUF-RTX3070-O8G-GAMING

Pros: - 2080ti level of performance - One of the better AIB RTX 3070 models, according to many reviews - Robust cooling - Card runs cool while gaming with temps in the 60c range - Card runs cool while browsing the web and working with temps in the 40c range with multiple tabs open and multiple videos playing at the same time - The fans are quiet. The fans are inaudible to me while browsing the web, working and gaming regardless if I am wearing headphones or not. - Only needs two 8 pin connectors - Minimal RGB, if you don't like RGB or just want a little RGB

Cons: - Only 8 GB of vram. I would like 10GB or even 12GB of vram on this card but that would also increase the cost. so far 8GB has been enough. just thinking of future games and how much vram they will utilize.

Overall Review: - Coming from a RTX 2060 Super this is a big jump in performance. Overall I am very pleased with this GPU and having 2080ti levels of performance for less money than the 2080ti was before the RTX 3000 series came out. I was fortunate enough to be able to purchase this card through the Newegg shuffle. - I have not had any issues with Asus GPU Tweak II monitoring software but I also have an Asus motherboard, which may help out. - I ended up purchasing a GPU support bracket as this GPU is 300mm long

Pros: - 10 cores 20 threads - works through everything I've thrown at it with ease - runs cool while browsing the web and working with temps in the 30c range - runs cool while gaming with temps in the 60c range - runs at 4.8 Ghz all cores with only turning on multi core enhancement (MCE) within bios. - multiple cores will boost to 5 Ghz - mine runs great at 1.3v - it's able to keep my RTX 3070 fed with GPU usage in upper 90% at 1080p with multiple monitors - price, your getting a lot of cpu for the money - stable mature pc, no fussiness - it's available for purchase

Cons: - none

Overall Review: - I would recommend this product to others.
