Most Favorable Review

So far working better than I expected

Noctua NH-L9a-AM4, Premium Low-profile CPU Cooler for AMD AM4 (Brown)
Noctua NH-L9a-AM4, Premium Low-profile CPU Cooler for AMD AM4 (Brown)

Pros: I just built a mini-ITX gaming system in a tiny case and had to use a low profile fan. This HSF was one of the only units available. Installed easily enough and fired system up not sure what to expect. So far it has worked great and is quiet as can be. Cant even tell its running.

Cons: You do have to remove the old style CPU fan clips and back plate to install but not really difficult. Hardest part was lining up screws to screw hole. If your unsure there is a video on Youtube showing how to install.

Most Critical Review

Dead.

XPG Spectrix S20G Series: 500GB Internal Solid State Drive PCIe Gen3 x4 M.2 2280
XPG Spectrix S20G Series: 500GB Internal Solid State Drive PCIe Gen3 x4 M.2 2280

Pros: Looks nice, fast

Cons: Lasted 5 months. Contacted Data/XPG, no response. Contacted Data through Newegg, told to go to website. First Data memory or storage item to go bad in twenty years.

Overall Review: I'm not mad that the drive has issues, I'm mad that I can't get a response.

Runs great in a Mini-ITX case

ASRock B550M-ITX/AC AM4 AMD B550 SATA 6Gb/s Mini ITX AMD Motherboard
ASRock B550M-ITX/AC AM4 AMD B550 SATA 6Gb/s Mini ITX AMD Motherboard

Pros: I bought this board to upgrade my Lian Li Tu-100B case. It's running a Ryzen 7 4750G, DDR4 3600, 1TB Nvme PCIe 4.0 v4. The only complaint is I can't get a decent video card to put in it.

Cons: I know I can't get much more on the board but wish it had 4 DIMM slots and another NVME slot on the back. So far I have zero complaints with it.

Overall Review: I have no complaints. In my tiny Lian Li system this board is even smaller than my last Mini ITX board.

Works great...sorta.

ASRock B550M PRO4 AM4 AMD B550 SATA 6Gb/s Micro ATX AMD Motherboard
ASRock B550M PRO4 AM4 AMD B550 SATA 6Gb/s Micro ATX AMD Motherboard

Pros: Has two Nvme slots. First is 4.0, Second is 3.0

Cons: For the most part works great but does not like my Ryzen 7 4750G Pro. Tried different memory and flashed the BIOS. Still problems. Took 4750G out and put in Ryzen 3200G, works perfectly.

Overall Review: Overall satisfied

Surprisingly nice video card

GIGABYTE Radeon RX 560 16CU DirectX 12 GV-RX560GAMING OC-4GD REV2.0 4GB 128-Bit GDDR5 ATX Video Card
GIGABYTE Radeon RX 560 16CU DirectX 12 GV-RX560GAMING OC-4GD REV2.0 4GB 128-Bit GDDR5 ATX Video Card

Pros: This card sits in a Lian Li TU100B mini-ITX case and it just barely fits. No external power connectors so fewer cables needed in case. Runs cool. Fans dont run at all til I start gaming and then you can hear fans speed up. This card has 4GB GDDR5. I wanted 4GB on video card as I wanted minimum usage of system memory for video. So far it does evrything I want it to do. I play World of Warcraft, World of Tanks, World of Warships, Ark: Survival Evolved and Armored Warfare and it runs all at medium to high settings and have had zero heat issues in a tiny Mini-ITX case so far.

Cons: Doesnt have a VGA port which caused me some problems first time I used it away from home, turns out I had a DVI-D cable and monitor in question has a DVI-D port.

Love this motherboard

GIGABYTE GA-AB350N-Gaming WIFI (rev. 1.0) AM4 AMD B350 SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.1 HDMI Mini ITX AMD Motherboard
GIGABYTE GA-AB350N-Gaming WIFI (rev. 1.0) AM4 AMD B350 SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.1 HDMI Mini ITX AMD Motherboard

Pros: Windows install was painless. Built in wireless and bluetooth is awesome if you have a portable gaming LANBOX. Means you bring a bluetooth keyboard and mouse and all you need to setup is a powercord, minimum of hassle and time to set up. M.2 port on back is great since with a Ryzen G model APU your entire system is on this board, no wires or cards to clutter case.

Cons: I only have two complaints about this board and both are minor points but IMHO important. 1) You have to use a remote wireless antennae where leads attach to back of motherboard and antennae sits on top of case. Would have rather seen two antennae that attached to back so I could transport case without having to attack and remove remote antennae every time. 2) Really wish this motherboard had just one PCI-E 1x slot to add a accessory card in, there is zero room for expansion.

Never thought I would ever see a good 850W SFX PSU.

This PSU is powering a MATX system. Asrock B550M Pro 4, Ryzen 7 5800X, XPG 32GB DDR4-3600, Gigabyte 6750XT OC, and 2 x 1TB NVME PCI-e 4.0 V3 (One Patriot Viper and one XPG). System runs great and PSU has been silent. Stock AMD CPU fan makes more noise than PSU. At idle PSU fan doesnt spin and PSU isnt even warm. This is my 4th FSP SFX Dagger PSU. I have been happy with all of them so felt comfortable getting another FSP Dagger.

Memory works great in a Gigabyte Aorus AB-350MN MIni-ITX mobo

Motherboard supports DDR4-3200 in overclock but so far is running fine. This is a Lian Li-TU100 case with a Ryzen 3 -3200G. So far seems to be running fine. Upgraded from 8GB DDR4-2966 TO 16GB DDR4-3200. Very noticeable difference in performance.
