Pros: - FAST - stable - cool

Most Critical Review

went out after a year of use

GIGABYTE AORUS Gen4 M.2 2280 500GB PCI-Express 4.0 x4, NVMe 1.3 3D TLC Internal Solid State Drive (SSD) GP-AG4500G
GIGABYTE AORUS Gen4 M.2 2280 500GB PCI-Express 4.0 x4, NVMe 1.3 3D TLC Internal Solid State Drive (SSD) GP-AG4500G

Pros: - FAST

Cons: - went out after a year unexpectedly - RMA PROCESS IS TERRIBLE

Overall Review: Overall this is a very fast ssd when paired w/ my ryzen 3700x and x570 mb. however the ssd went out and i lost everything on it. parts break, i get it, but Aorus support and warranty dept are by far the WORST DEPT IVE EVER WORKED WITH. spend the extra money and go w/ another company.

Love this board!

ASUS ROG Strix Z370-E Gaming LGA 1151 (300 Series) Intel Z370 HDMI SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.1 ATX Intel Motherboard

Pros: First off let me say i love strix boards in general. This board does have some RGB elements on it but its not overly done like some of the gigabyte and aorus boards ive owned in the past. it has several RGB headers to add more lighting if thats your thing, aura software syncs up with the board and my video card. The bios is very easy to use and has a ton of OC features, it easily got my 8600k to 5ghz. the m.2 slot under the bottom heatsink also provides some nice cooling to an otherwise passively cooled m.2

Cons: - none

Love these fans!

Corsair CO-9050039-WW 120 mm ML120, 120mm Premium Magnetic Levitation PWM Fan (2-Pack)

Pros: - quiet! - they move alot of air and dont produce alot of noise doing it. - i had 2 on my Coolermaster 240 AIO and it lowered the temps by 15 degrees

Cons: - price lol

Overall Review: - i love these fans and will be switching all of my future builds to these!

Nice stable power supply

EVGA SuperNOVA 650 G1 120-G1-0650-XR 80+ GOLD 650W Fully Modular Includes FREE Power On Self Tester Power Supply
EVGA SuperNOVA 650 G1 120-G1-0650-XR 80+ GOLD 650W Fully Modular Includes FREE Power On Self Tester Power Supply

Pros: - fully modular and the cables are all black, no ketchup and mustard here! - very stable, no problems even on my 8600k @ 5Ghz w/ a 1070 strix and 3 drives!

Cons: - doesnt fit in my old p300 case, should have double checked first so that was my fault

Overall Review: - this is a pretty long power supply so check your case for fitment before you purchase!

Great Cooler!!!

Hyper 212 LED Turbo- Red Top Cover is equipped with dual 120mm PWM Fans with red LEDs by Cooler Master
Hyper 212 LED Turbo- Red Top Cover is equipped with dual 120mm PWM Fans with red LEDs by Cooler Master

Pros: - Red on top is an anodized aluminum plate that is more of a deeper red than the picture shows. It matched my xpg memory perfectly! - very easy to mount - keeps temps very low and it is very quiet

Cons: - none

Overall Review: - the fan splitter that is included is roughly 6" long and could be a pain to hide but i made due, will not deduct an egg because atleast it comes with one!
