Pros: I installed this on my Ryzen 5 1600. I have my processor overclocked to 3.95 on app cores. With the stock cooler I was hitting 39c at idle and 75c in game. Noctua cooler has my temps at 28c at idle and 60c in game. Highly recommend this cooler if you are overclocking you cpu, or just want very low temps at stock speeds. Installation was pretty easy. Only tricky part is mounting fans back on while in a case.
Cons: None so far.
Overall Review: Shipping was fast. Installation was easy, and really keeping my temps low. All good things to me. Can't wait to try this cooler on Ryzen 3000 build.
Pros: Looks nice right out of the box.
Cons: It will not post. I did a open bench test to make sure everything worked. The board will not recognize the ram or video card. I have new out of the box Flare X 3200 16 gig and EVGA 1060 FTW2. No matter what I did (re-install the components, use 1 stick ram I'm each slot, and moved the video card it had errors. Emailed ASRock, but they want me to contact Newegg for help. Talk about not standing behind your product. Hope Newegg is more helpful.
Overall Review: The ram is on their list of selected and tested list. Glad to open bench test it before installing. I would have been even more upset about taking everything out.
