So I've installed this on SAMSUNG 970 PRO NVMe, after BIOS load I get to Windows in 3 seconds6/18/2019 9:12:16 PM

Pros: - so my first experience with Windows was the 3.1 version, and I used most of them since, this one ranks about 3rd after XP and Windows 7 - they constantly improve this product as it supposed to be the last Windows, and they do listen to the community feedback - works well, very stable, rarely crashes - great improvement over Windows 8 - trouble free install on a SAMSUNG 970 PRO NVMe

Cons: - it supposed to be the last Windows, so what choice do you have? - lots of privacy concerns turn on by default, and other resource intensive processes that are not needed - update process was better on previous versions of Windows, many times it gets stuck at a certain %, then you toggle the screen and you will see that the progress bar moves - suffered from a fuzzy text, when laptop was connected to external display, which eventually got resolved through one of the feature pacts

Overall Review: I went for a retail since Microsoft is not releasing anymore PC based operating systems in the future, it is better to have a hard copy on hand then rely on OEM. Go back to Windows 7 update model allowing us to select updates we want to install, turn off telemetry and all those resource hogging useless processes, and privacy settings on off, then I will give it 5 eggs rating

With all the fake cables around there the fail in a short time, Belkin been around for ages and I trust their cabling products6/18/2019 8:03:43 PM

Pros: - it's Belkin cable which means it is reliable - I got two of those cables for two monitors, and they work great - cable structure and connectors look solid

Cons: - none that I can think of

Overall Review: Stick to reliable companies for your cabling needs like Belkin if you want those components to work in a long haul. I would surely buy it again

Solid looking and a quiet fan6/18/2019 7:48:44 PM

Pros: - my system does not get pushed match, it has a strong supporting cast with liquid cooling, i9 processor, and EVGA Z390 DARK MB so this guy does not work that hard, but even though here and there load increases it is relatively quiet - looks like it is very well made, fits well inside the Corsair Obsidian Series 750D Airflow case, as I swapped the stack 140mm fans with this one - works well, no idea what else to say about a fan

Cons: - none that I can think of

Overall Review: Corsair is my cooling solution with H115i PRO RGB, and those plus 120mm version of the same ones (unfortunately NewEgg did not have them in stack so I had to get them from elsewhere), I'm happy as a bee with this company

Great product, does what it supposed to well6/15/2019 12:00:29 AM

Pros: - I use this for my data, quick access, performs well under load - I cool it with a cooling pad that came with my EVGA Z390 Dark MB - Was easy to install, my MB already had the M.2 stand-off screw - BIOS recognized it immediately

Cons: - Price

Overall Review: Samsung seem to be a leader in this area, and I jumped on the band wagon. So far so good. Hopefully it can last at least 5 years

My OS runs off it, less than 3 second BOOT after the BIOS loads6/14/2019 6:01:19 PM

Pros: - insane speed, load times are practically instant - it got recognized without an issue by the BIOS (EVGA Z390 Dark MB) - it does not take much space - two M2.NVMe cooling pads came with my MB, so I was able to cool it

Cons: - the only thing I can think off is the price

Overall Review: Extremely happy with my purchase. The fast loading times, data operations are just amazing. I think this is a must for any OS

Amazing processor6/5/2019 6:56:15 PM

Pros: - it stays cool 33-34 Celsius when idle, and barely goes over 60 Celsius under load - turbo boosts to 4.8 GhHz and the system is flying - I don't rely on it for graphics since I have NVIDIA RTX 2060 card - 0 complains

Cons: - none, nada, nothing that I can think of

Overall Review: - highly recommend it, would buy it again

Fulfills its purpose well, but it is expensive6/2/2019 3:24:41 PM

Pros: - I do get the advertised speed of 3200MHz, my EVGA Z390 DARK motherboard's BIOS XMP profile recognized it, and speed test confirmed - It is not RGB - Very low timing 14-14-14-34

Cons: - Pricey, but a little over a month that I purchased it, it dropped down to $50

Overall Review: Although more reasonably priced now at $259.99 as compared to a time I purchased it one month ago at $309.99, I would have gone for faster speed and higher latency and paid less

There had to be something better than rubbing alcohol, and there is6/2/2019 2:35:13 PM

Pros: - does well exactly what is says it does, allows you to remove the previously applied, and then polish the surface - it does not carry any toxic fumes but soft lemon smell

Cons: - nothing that I can think of

Overall Review: I got it to remove the TM30 thermal paste that was pre-applied to my Corsair Hydro Series, H115i PRO. Of course I could have used the rubbing alcohol (isopropyl alcohol) but I am not crazy with the toxic fumes associated with that solution. You had to have a well ventilated room, and try not to inhale. Nothing with this, natural product that won't shorten your life. A must for anyone who is interested in building systems or upgrading CPUs.

Great efficient titanium modular power supply6/2/2019 2:00:06 PM

Pros: - electricity is not cheap, so I wanted power supply that is most efficient, and I think titanium is as high as you can go - not too long at 170 mm, it fits perfect in my Corsair Obsidian Series 750D Airflow case - all the cables are provided in a neatly label sleeve

Cons: - cables provided are not that flexible, you will know what I am saying when you need to do a tight pivot

Overall Review: It is important to invest in a good power supply, don't try to save money on your PSU, as it dictates the vitality of your system. Cannot go wrong with this PSU, I strongly recommend it

It fulfills its purpose of great Airflow6/2/2019 1:17:16 PM

Pros: - that thing is a wind farm. I have it configured to have two intake 120mm fans on the bottom, two 140mm fans in the front, two exhaust 140mm fans on the top mounted to a radiator, and one 140mm exhaust fan on the back. This creates a positive pressure air flow, keeping the dust out (more air enters then leaves) - it had motherboard standoff screws, so you won't fry your motherboard as some people forget to install them - great cabling management, due two second plane that allows you to have the cables pass without being exposed - lower bay removes, allowing to install the two 120mm fans - due to its size there is lots of space inside - solidly build, you can tell it was well made

Cons: Minor things: - I don't care much about the front SATA bays, and there is no way to remove them - It weights quite a bit with all the components installed, so don't think you are going to be moving it around much - It does not have dust filters for all the fans (I purchase a dedicated DEMCiflex Dust Filter Kit for this case)

Overall Review: I spend a considerable amount time researching best airflow cases , and this was my finalist. While it is not most ascetic case out there, (shiny lights don't mean much to me) it comes with superb airflow.

In a quiet mode, it is keeping my CPU super cool5/29/2019 9:30:18 PM

Pros: - it keeps my i9-9900K CPU very cool utilizing the quiet mode mode at around 34 Celsius , while under load it barely reaches 50 Celsius. - the ICQ software runs flawlessly. As I am writing this review under idle mode it is reporting, fan #1 is at 433 RPMs, fan # 2 is at 432 RPMs and the pump is operating at 1110 RPMs, the overall temparature of the coolant is 26.8 Celsius. Besides the quiet mode (you cannot hear anything) you have balanced, extreme and zero RPMs - Far Cry 5 on Ultra pushed it to in quiet mode, fan #1 to 493 RPMs, fan #2 491 RPMs, and pump to 1140 RPMs, and overall temperature to 31.6 Celsius

Cons: - it comes with pre-applied Corsair TM30 thermal paste, which according to reviews is not that great. I haven't tried it, but I've removed it and used the real Thermal Grizzly Kryonaut thermal paste and used the pea size in the middle, with tiny dots on each corner application method

Overall Review: I would recommend it, and I would purchase it again for myself for another setup if needed. It does it's job and does it well. Also the thermal paste make a difference as Thermal Grizzly Kryonaut is top of the line. The installation was also a breeze, and I worked with the Corsair Obsidian Series 750D Airflow Edition, which gave me many placement options (I ended up installing on the top)

Might the best Z390 Motherboard out there, it is build like a tank and delivers incredible performance5/28/2019 10:10:39 PM

Pros: - overclocking galore, using i9-9900K speed record was set with it, nearing almost 7 GHz - BIOS is a work of art, everything got recognized without any problems NVMEs, high speed memories aka XMP... There are profiles for different settings - i9-9900K boosts effortlessly to 4.8 GHz and barely it reaches 50 Celsius under load, idle it is at cool 34 Celsius. - fan headers have upper limit of 24 watts, so you don't have to split your hairs trying to find a fan that would work - lets you draw extra power for the CPU, and the PCI slots

Cons: - 32 GB Memory Limit

Overall Review: Sky is the limit with this board, and EVGA support 247 you get a tech in the middle of the night for any question, how can you beat that?

Pleasantly surprised how good this card is, being the low end RTX5/23/2019 5:04:12 PM

Pros: - Hit 140 frames per second in OC mode in 1080p using Ultra Settings - Under load barely hits 60 degrees Celsius, and idle hovers around 40 degrees Celsius (I did invest in optimal air flow inside the case) - It boosts 200MHz over the OC rate - Does not miss a beat during game capture, with video overlay (haven't tried streaming yet)

Cons: - None so far

Overall Review: I got this card for superb 1080p gaming experience, and it could not been happier. It runs one of the toughest cookies out there, Far Cry 5, smooth as butter.
