Great card

XFX Radeon RX 570 8GB DDR5 PCI Express 3.0 CrossFireX Support Video Card RX-570P8DFD6
XFX Radeon RX 570 8GB DDR5 PCI Express 3.0 CrossFireX Support Video Card RX-570P8DFD6

Pros: Great card for the price point Fan only turns on when needed

Cons: A little bit loud under high reved fans but my machine is literally 2ft from my head.

Overall Review: For my first card that is not 8 years old the fact that the fan is not always on scared me, but lots of the old games do not even need the fan on for you to play. Newer games the fan comes on just fine and I have never seen anything over 90c. The card revs up when needed and stays quiet when not needed.

Great board if you get a good one

MSI MPG X570 GAMING PLUS Gaming Motherboard AMD AM4 SATA 6Gb/s M.2 USB 3.2 Gen 2 HDMI ATX
MSI MPG X570 GAMING PLUS Gaming Motherboard AMD AM4 SATA 6Gb/s M.2 USB 3.2 Gen 2 HDMI ATX

Pros: Does everything: Am4 support M2 x2 128gb of ram

Cons: Hangs on shutdown or a hard reboot

Overall Review: This board is amazing. It does it all. But I have went through 2. RMAed the 1st one and just kept the 2nd one. I have flashed the bios tried different ram, reseated the cpu, 3 different video cards, 3 different power supplies, made sure there is not short to the case... I have tried it all and this board will not reboot properly on a hard shut down. Also the fan on the board chipset only ever spins up on boot and never comes back on, maybe I just never push the board hard enough or that is connected to my reboot issues. Many others have had this same issue. The fan on the CPU will rev to top speed and just stay that way. The Ez-debug light for the vga will stay on and that is it. It just hangs. Resetting the cmos, or just flicking the psu switch and letting it sit off for 10 seconds resets whatever the problem is and then it will boot up fine. Also a restart from windows is fine but a crash, power outage or if you just turn off the machine and come back the next day you will have the issue and have to turn off the psu for 10 seconds. I had a power outage and the machine hung in the high cpu rev mode for 4hours but everything was fine but it still bothers me. Many people have complained about this issue, do a quick search. This board works amazing once it is running but the amount of troubleshooting I had to go through to just decide to keep this board because it is not worth it to return and build the machine again is not worth it. Buy another board.

Pros: RGB mode Daylight mode Nighttime mode 1hr shut off timer

Overall Review: This light must be plugged in. All the other I have bought can be used wirelessly. But still a great bedside lamp.

Good memory

Overall Review: The memory works great but when I put it in my CPU started overheating when running XMP and it runs hotter overall. I have a stock cooler so no big deal to upgrade but it is a problem. I looked into this and it happens with some motherboards it seems. But super happy with the memory just something to consider if you have a stock cooler

Overall Review: I got them at 50% off they were a steal. My kids and myself love them. It wouldve nice if it had a limiter so it was easier to crank them down to the lowest setting.
