Most Favorable Review

It's a 3070

MSI Ventus GeForce RTX 3070 Ti 8GB GDDR6X PCI Express 4.0 Video Card RTX 3070 Ti Ventus 3X 8G OC
MSI Ventus GeForce RTX 3070 Ti 8GB GDDR6X PCI Express 4.0 Video Card RTX 3070 Ti Ventus 3X 8G OC

Pros: -It works -Slightly better than a 3070, but still not even half way to a 3080

Cons: -Horrible price to performance increase with regards to standard 3070 -Fans at 100% are loud, though in a good airflow case, take off speed is not required -No lights, extremely bland styling

Overall Review: In todays crazy market is a review really needed? Will this ever be available again? The smarter money choice is to get a 3070, if you really want performance, get a 3080. Desperate for a graphics card? Get this, get anything you can. What really gets me with this card is the lack of lights. $1,000 and no lights? I'm not all into the RGB thing, but I really like the standard white "RTX" "GEFORCE" "MSI" "insert model number" along the side of the card.

Most Critical Review

Good + Bad = Average

Fractal Design Focus G Gunmetal Gray ATX Mid Tower Computer Case
Fractal Design Focus G Gunmetal Gray ATX Mid Tower Computer Case

Pros: -Smooth and rounded edges -Doesn't feel cheap and thin. Side panels are pretty beefy -Dust filters galore -Decent cable management and back plate cut-outs -Easy to remove front panel

Cons: -Only 1 USB3, super dated front IO -Strobe light disc use LED. Seriously bright, will blind you. Don't plug it in -2.5" SSD placement on the back panel is awkward. Screws behind PSU and cables are tight -Only 1 usable 5.25" bay with radiator mounted on top -Mine had one side panel retainer bent

Overall Review: Overall it's a quality budget case if you absolutely need a dvd drive. There are better, or cheaper cases without the 5.25" bays. It really has some awesome good features to balance out some terrible ones to give you an average case. It does only come with the 2 front fans, so if you are air cooling you would need to source an exhaust fan. Worst feature by far is probably the aircraft grade strobe light used for the disc in use LED(HDD LED).

Bad listing, Mostly good product

GAMEMAX Master M905 Black Steel / Tempered Glass ATX Full Tower Computer Case
GAMEMAX Master M905 Black Steel / Tempered Glass ATX Full Tower Computer Case

Pros: +Radiator and fans fit nicely* +280mm radiator fits* +4 front USB ports +Super easy dust filter cleaning +8* HDD bays with 2 bonus SSD trays in back +Front I/O fitted with rubber plugs for shipping/non use +Manual fan controllers may be useful for someone +Rounded edges, clean design

Cons: -Plastic side panel(Newegg listing states glass) -No way a a 360mm radiator will fit up front(Newegg listing says yes) -Doubtful a 360mm will even fit up top but can not confirm it -1 standoff short of what my MB needed -GPU longer than 280mm/285mm will require the removal of 4 HDD bays -Top plastic shroud comes off too easy when trying to move the whole thing

Overall Review: It should be a 4.5 egg product. Offering tons of 3.5" and 5.25" bays, and reasonably well built. No sharp edges, decent cable management offerings, provisions for 6 fans. However, an oversized GPU will require the deletion of 4 HDD bays. Probably not an issue for most, but be warned a large 3 fan card likely will not fit with all 8 bays installed. So what's the problem? As of this review: the Newegg listing is, in my opinion a straight lie. The side panel of the unit I received is plastic. A 360mm radiator will not fit up front and I am extremely doubtful it will fit up top as it appears it will contact the front I/O wiring/PCB. A 240mm will fit up front and top. The listing does not specifically state a 280mm will fit up top, but there are mounting holes for one(or two 140mm fans). I had to drill 4 of them out as they did not line up right.

Good Low profile cooler

Noctua NH-L9x65, Premium Low-Profile CPU Cooler (65mm, Brown)

Pros: -easy install -good cooling for a non K series Intel chip

Cons: -Noctua and their brown fans

Overall Review: While not super low profile, it is smaller than most and gets the job done

It's RAM, it works

G.SKILL Ripjaws V Series 32GB (2 x 16GB) 288-Pin PC RAM DDR4 4400 (PC4 35200) Desktop Memory Model F4-4400C19D-32GVK

Pros: -It works -No RGB. I grew tired of the glowy lights

Cons: -A bit high profile. If you have a massive air cooler, be mindful. Corsair vengeance(non RGB) is not as tall -No RGB if you're into that

Overall Review: It's stable thus far at full 4400mhz in my system. AsRock Z590 Steel Legend. I9-11900K.
