Pros: -extremely fast for the clock and pwr consumption -Easy overclock at 3.9 on air cooling -beat a fx-8370-e oc at 4.4

Cons: -price range between 1400 and 1600 shouldn't be so high compared to MSRP

Pros: predy long cord for a power bar free gift

Pros: -oc is easy -ram clock even more easy -4 slot of ram on a matx -2 pcie on a matx -bios is a charm -web bios update made flash a piece of cake -could not find bether for the price

Cons: -mail rebate is a pain in the $%? no printer got to save as pdf dont now why it wouldn't save so i loss my confirmation and couldn't get an other loss 25$ whit this -Only 2 system fan port but not a big deal since i drive them a full speed any way -could use more info on manual and e-manual for uefi (bios)

more the expected

Cons: -none

XPG Z1 8GB (2 x 4GB) DDR4 2400 (PC4 19200) Desktop Memory Model AX4U2400W4G16-DRZ

Pros: it's ram at a nice clock rate so it's getting the job done and clock well on a ryzen build

Cons: red i whish it was black and white since i pair it whit a asrock ab350m pro and a msi armor rx570 but for the cost at the moment im not picky on the esthetic

Awesome card for the price

MSI Radeon RX 570 4GB GDDR5 PCI Express 3.0 x16 CrossFireX Support ATX Video Card RX 570 ARMOR 4G OC

Pros: -paired whit r5 1400 oc at 3.9 ghz and 8gb 2400 16cl ram = 120+ fps on doom at 1080p max setting on vulkan and 80+ on opengl -this card is so quiet even at 100% fan speed -finally it look awesome specially on a asrock ab350 pro4 mobo but i don't stare at the inside of my case any way -single 8 pin power plug instead of the 2x 6 pin of my old gtx560

Cons: -lack of vga/dvi-i ou only got digital output so if you have like me an old secondary monitor you will need a display port to vga adapter -missing a back plate a big majority of newer card have those so in regard of the production cost it's not a big deal to add one
