Most Favorable Review

Finally I got a card that can run games on high settings

EVGA GeForce GTX 970 04G-P4-2974-KR 4GB SC GAMING w/ACX 2.0, Silent Cooling Graphics Card
EVGA GeForce GTX 970 04G-P4-2974-KR 4GB SC GAMING w/ACX 2.0, Silent Cooling Graphics Card

Pros: I've been getting really good FPS in games like Arma 3, L4D2, Cities Skyline, GTA 5, & Rocket League to name a few. I have never played games with above average FPS it took me a day or two to get use to.

Cons: Needing EVGA Precision X 16 to keep it running cool, even though I haven't seen anything go above 45C in my case.

Overall Review: For being the Mid range Card it sure plays like a high-end card.

My first m.2 SSD

SAMSUNG 970 PRO M.2 2280 512GB PCIe Gen3. X4, NVMe 1.3 64L V-NAND 2-bit MLC Internal Solid State Drive (SSD) MZ-V7P512BW
SAMSUNG 970 PRO M.2 2280 512GB PCIe Gen3. X4, NVMe 1.3 64L V-NAND 2-bit MLC Internal Solid State Drive (SSD) MZ-V7P512BW

Pros: Installed Windows 10 Pro in 4 minutes. Much faster then my old 2.5" SSD. Was easy to Install in my ASUS Hero XI MB.

Cons: Haven't found any.

My second Intel and lovin it

Intel Core i9 9th Gen - Core i9-9900K Coffee Lake 8-Core, 16-Thread, 3.6 GHz (5.0 GHz Turbo) LGA 1151 (300 Series) 95W BX80684I99900K Desktop Processor Intel UHD Graphics 630

Pros: Being 8 cores and 16 threads Easily overclocked

Cons: Haven't found any that is related to being the CPU

Overall Review: This is my 2nd Intel Processor. My last one was an i5-6600K and you can see a big difference.

A very nice RBG Mouse tons of lighting opinions!!!

Steelseries Rival 600 Gaming Mouse - 12,000 CPI TrueMove3+ Dual Optical Sensor - 0.05 Lift-off Distance - Weight System - RGB Lighting
Steelseries Rival 600 Gaming Mouse - 12,000 CPI TrueMove3+ Dual Optical Sensor - 0.05 Lift-off Distance - Weight System - RGB Lighting

Pros: RBG Lighting Lighting effects/Lighting controls 2 mouse sensitivity controls user controlled by the Steelseries Engine 3 software and CPI button above the scroll wheel Lift-off sensitivity controls by the Steelseries Engine 3 software Weight adjustment Extra mouse button (Mouse 6) thumb side which I'll use for reloading weapons in a game

Cons: Not really a con because you can make a profile for it. I would have like a way to turn the RBG Lighting off at night. Doesn't make me breakfast.

Overall Review: This is the first mouse I got for myself in years my old mouse scroll wheel died on me.

Good that I have 24GB now BUT

G.SKILL Ripjaws V Series 16GB (2 x 8GB) 288-Pin DDR4 SDRAM DDR4 3200 (PC4 25600) Desktop Memory Model F4-3200C16D-16GVK

Pros: As always another great product from G.Skill

Cons: I have 8GB already in this Machine, and was running the XMP, But now with the NEW 16GB the XMP won't run, it keeps crashing to the BIOS.

Overall Review: MSI Gaming 5 Motherboard Intel I5-6600K Processor 24GB G.Skill 3200Mhz 16-16-16-36 Ram (2x4GB & 2x8GB) EVGA GTX 970 3.5TB Of Disk Space over 1 SSD and 3 HHD

My 6th and 7th WD

WD Blue 1TB Desktop Hard Disk Drive - 7200 RPM SATA 6Gb/s 64MB Cache 3.5 Inch - WD10EZEX

Pros: Fast and store all my Games and Media.

Cons: Not really a CON but it takes about 4-5 Seconds for the discovery of the drive for either. But this could also be the OS or other part within my build that is slowing that down.

Overall Review: None.
