Excellent RGB kit
Pros: -Bends looks great -Lighting is diffused almost perfectly -Great compatibility
Cons: -Possibly a magnetic/or adhesive mounting option
Overall Review: Bought two kits already. Works great through Asus Aura. Other than a magnetic mounting option no real faults.
Amazing display flickering issue is real though
Pros: This is an outstanding real PC HDR display. The flickering issue some state is a real one but easy to overlook and infrequent. Best display I have ever owned. True blacks.
Cons: Flickering issue is real. Curve does take some getting used to but once you get it you love it.
Overall Review: 100% would reccomend.
The only 5000 Series AMD GPU you should buy!
Pros: -The premier class AMD GPU - Good value and pricing considering performance -Great cooling -Good RGB software (if interested) -Clean design
Cons: -Could have driver issues (I didn't with one card, but did with another. It's not a hardware issue though) -More than MSRP of a 5700xt, however is worth every penny.
Overall Review: As long as you don't run into driver issues this is the card you should get if in the market for an AMD 5000 series GPU.
Great mid level mobo for the price
Pros: -PCI-E 4.0 -Stable -Good value for money for usb ports/NVME and the like -Solid BIOs that isn't confusing for new builders. -Wifi (for those who use it)
Cons: -Advanced bios features could be better (asus as an example) -Make sure it's at MSRP or you may be overpaying
Overall Review: So as long as you find it at MSRP it is a great value for a mid tier board. Not entry level. Bios is great for first time builders, but missing some advanced features and some confusion on advanced bios. Very stable and no issues with it.
Great CPU with IGPU for the money
Pros: -Integrated graphics for basic use and some light gaming -Powerful CPU for the price and a good starting point for entry level gaming -Price is just right -Easy install as with any AM4 socket CPU
Cons: -CPU isn't as powerful as standard CPU from same generation -Not for mainstream gaming -Remember this is based on Zen + (Ryzen 2nd Generation pr Ryzen 2000) and not Zen 2 (Ryzen 3rd Generation or Ryzen 3000)
Overall Review: Great semi-APU for the price. I am using it for an at home work computer which is way overkill for the task. However I want the extra power for some applications I use from time to time. Remember having a decent GPU does boost web browsing performance and this kills intel's IGPU as of now. Isn't as powerful as a pure CPU from same generation and model. However it does it's job and is worth the money.
