Excellent UltraHD Playback/Ripping

LG BU40N Blu-ray Writer - BD-R/RE Support - 24x CD Read/24x CD Write/16x CD Rewrite - 6x BD Read/6x
LG BU40N Blu-ray Writer - BD-R/RE Support - 24x CD Read/24x CD Write/16x CD Rewrite - 6x BD Read/6x

Pros: Installed into my Asus G752VL Laptop. Burns great, rips 4K movies great. All around wonderful bluray drive.

Cons: No cons to speak of. Other reviewer complained about loud drive. However you have to remember this is a very small drive in a compact location. In order to achieve the read speeds it has to be a little loud. Can't have one without the other.

Overall Review: Definitely recommend this drive to anyone needing full read/write of every single format that is out right now.

Most Critical Review

Great block, factory put together wrong

EK-Quantum Velocity D-RGB - AMD Ryzen Edition
EK-Quantum Velocity D-RGB - AMD Ryzen Edition

Pros: Amazing cooling, looks good, easy to install

Cons: Ekwb's factory put this block together wrong. The white RGB color diffuser was upside down from the factory. Causing my block to leak out all over my cpu socket. Caught it quickly but super upset and worried I ruined my ryzen 5950x cpu and asrock x570 phantom gaming x mobo. Took the system apart and dried everything out. Then took the block apart and found the factory mistake. Re-assembled the block correctly and refilled loop. WAS STILL ABLE TO SALVAGE EVERYTHING AS IT STILL WORKS!!!

Overall Review: I would recommend this product again, however please inspect your cpu block before you install it. Make sure there is 0 rattling as you shake the block. And make sure to do a leak test away from your system.

Amazing Motherboard

ASRock X570 Phantom Gaming X AM4 AMD Premium X570 SATA 6Gb/s ATX AMD Motherboard
ASRock X570 Phantom Gaming X AM4 AMD Premium X570 SATA 6Gb/s ATX AMD Motherboard

Pros: Used this motherboard for an upgrade away from my Threadripper 1950x. I used a Ryzen 5950x cpu in this. Upgraded the bios to 4.15 as it came out the day before this Motherboard arrived. Works flawlessly with 0 issues. Also paired this with a Samsung 1TB 980 Pro NVME drive. Reads at over 6,300MB/s, Writes at over 5,200MB/s. Just waiting to upgrade my 1080Ti MSI Lightning card to a Evga 3090 FTW3. Running my 5950x cpu at 4.5GHz all core @ 1.3v. Using a custom loop water cooler.

Cons: Absolutely nothing bad I can say about this motherboard, this is my 2nd Asrock board I've ever owned.

Overall Review: Highly recommend to any Ryzen 5000 upgraders. Rock solid bios. Amazing layout.

An Amazing Case!

Thermaltake Core X5 Tempered Glass Snow Edition E-ATX Stackable Cube Chassis CA-1E8-00M6WN-00

Pros: - Super easy to build in, no sharp edges - Love the 2.5" Rails - Very big case, fits anything you throw at it - Tempered Glass is extremely see through, not tinted like picture shows

Cons: - The PCI Slot slide down cover is a little annoying when swapping parts - Not the cases fault but AIOs are going to be an issue with the hose lengths. Mounted mine in the front of the case That't it, only con against the case is that

Overall Review: - Upgraded from a cooler master haf xb evo case, no regrets Here is what I have in mine right now - Corsair RM1000 Power Supply w/ custom white sleeved cable replacement set - MSI X99A Xpower AC Motherboard - EATX - 4x 8GB (32GB) Mushkin Enchanded Blackline DDR4 2400 - Intel Xeon 1650 v4 CPU - 6 Core/12 Thread - Corsair H100i GTX (Mounted in front, side mounting made the hoses to small, didn't want to do top as I have 2x200mm Bitfenix white LED fans) - MSI 1080ti Lightning X Video Card - Creative Labs Sound Blaster Z Sound Card - Fan configuration - 2x 200mm Bitfenix Spectre Pro White LED (TOP EXHAUST), 2x 120mm NZXT RGB (FRONT PUSH RAD FANS), 2x 120mm EK Varder White fans (PULLING AIR THROUGH FRONT RAD), 1x 140mm NZXT RGB (ABOVE MOBO I/O SHIELD EXHAUST) - 16x LG WH16NS40 BluRay Burner (TOP 5.25" MOUNT, BOTTOM 2 ARE TAKEN UP BY FRONT RAD) - White NZXT HUE+ RGB Kit - STORAGE - Boot drive (Samsung 950 Pro nvme m.2), Game Storage (Samsung 850 EVO SSD 500GB), Game ISOs (3TB WD Red), Misc Storage (4TB WD Red)

RiDATA 25GB 4X BD-R Inkjet White Hub-Printable 50 Packs Disc Model BDR-254-RDIWN-CB50

Pros: ive burned roughly 500+ of these discs and that i can recall maybe had 1 bad burn over the last 3 years. im now using the LG WH16NS40 to burn bluray backups. rock solid combination. they burn 4x, 6x, 8x and 10x with imgburn. but i mostly just burn at 4x. no hurry

Cons: no cons at all

64GB in Asus G752 laptop

G.SKILL Ripjaws Series 32GB (2 x 16GB) 260-Pin DDR4 SO-DIMM DDR4 2800 (PC4 22400) Laptop Memory Model F4-2800C18D-32GRS
G.SKILL Ripjaws Series 32GB (2 x 16GB) 260-Pin DDR4 SO-DIMM DDR4 2800 (PC4 22400) Laptop Memory Model F4-2800C18D-32GRS

Pros: Bought 2 of these kits for a total of 64GB of memory. Works perfectly in my Asus G752 Laptop. Laptop however limits the speed to 2400. Not a limitation of the memory, just a limitation of the laptop chipset.

Cons: No cons to speak of. Works perfectly fine in my laptop.

Overall Review: Would definitely recommend this memory to anyone wanting excellent fast ram. Leaps and bounds better then any manufacturer's memory from the factory.
