Cool Lights Bro3/11/2017 10:40:32 AM

Pros: -Nice looking, high performing all in one cooler. -Keeps my i5 7600k 5.2ghz around 75C under full load for 12hrs -easy installation -the lights put this thing on another level, perfect for an RGB build

Cons: It has two cables that plug into it. one is split into three more cables for sata power, radiator fan connector, and motherboard aio pump header connector. The other cable is a mini usb to internal usb connector to control the lights. If you are going for a clean look, these can make it challenging but not impossible.

Overall Review: Looks sick. I would pick this all in one cooler over others any day

The best z270 board out there3/11/2017 10:06:44 AM

Pros: -ultimate overclocking potential -got my i5 7600k running at 5.2ghz no problem along with my gskill tridentZ rgb ram to 4300mhz -Looks phenomenal, the e-atx form factor allows for leds all the way around the board. None of the other maximus ix have this -Dimm.2 m.2 riser card works no problems -all the overclocking buttons on the board (start, restart, retry, safeboot, Memok, and bios switch) are super nice to use when overclocking -asus rog features are legit -option for a custom name plate with led back lights -usb 3.0 header goes off the board sideways for a super clean look -clear cmos button on back panel -two 12v rgb headers

Cons: -the Dimm slots are indeed super close to the cpu socket. My Nzxt Kraken x62 had to be turned 90 degrees to fit. -E-atx form factor is hard to find a mid tower for especially if you want a full side window. I recommend the Rosewill Cullinan -cpu fan header is in a visible spot, can look clean but takes a little work -only has 2 usb 2.0 headers so you might need a usb hub for extras like nzxt hue+

Overall Review: -doesn't have a water cooled vrm option like the maximus ix formula but its $100 cheaper so not really a con -I almost got a maximus ix Hero instead of this for budget reasons but I went with this when I saw it has the leds all the way around the board. This board by itself is enough for a rgb build. -doesn't have some of the rog features like better on board sound but its not built for that. If you want the best overclocking board, this is it.

This case is Clean.3/11/2017 9:24:05 AM

Pros: this is a great mid tower supports up to an e-atx motherboard power supple shroud excellent cable management options room for two radiators comes with four case fans installed Tempered glass on three sides Definitely not a boring case and not expensive for what you get

Cons: tempered glass is a touch dark. its good for the back side to hide cables but you will need a lot of lights to show off your hardware. it doesn't have very much room in the back cable management. I managed to get a nzxt hue+, grid+v2, and usb hub in the back with all my cables looking very nice. Just took a lot of work and planning.

Overall Review: Not a con but slightly annoying - very little room between power supply and hard drive cage. I have a evga supernova 1000 and I had to take the cage out to be able to plug in my power supply cables. I was able to get the hard drive cage back in afterwards I don't like the fan switch. it can do low power, full power, or off. I put in my own fans and a different fan hub. I wish it had an option to put a cover over it where the fan switch wouldn't show for an overall cleaner look.

Its Fast Bro3/11/2017 9:02:53 AM

Pros: Its the fastest you can get. Installs easy, windows 10 had no problems recognizing the drive

Cons: Definitely not budget friendly.

Overall Review: I bought this over two 256gb 960 evo in raid 0 because several reviews said the evo was prone to fail. If your on the fence about the pro or the evo, get the pro.
