Finally an aio that can tame my 5800x

EK 240mm AIO D-RGB All-in-One Liquid CPU Cooler with EK-Vardar High-Performance PMW Fans, Water Cooling Computer Parts, 120mm Fan, Intel 115X/1200/2066, AMD AM4, (240mm AIO) LGA 1700 Ready

Pros: Great performance versus a few other brands.

Cons: Installing inside a small case can be a fun task

Overall Review: Very impressed with this AIO. Dropped my 5800x from the verge of throttle(90c) down to a nice and easy to manage 80c. My other aio would be 90c in cinebench and the pump ate itself alive. Maybe rad mounted pump wasn't such a good idea or I got a bad aio but I also hated the old aio wouldn't bolt through the mainboard. This EK not only mounts the way I like it performs tons better.

Had to get the better one

AMD Ryzen 9 5950X - Ryzen 9 5000 Series Vermeer (Zen 3) 16-Core 3.4 GHz Socket AM4 105W None Desktop Processor - 100-100000059WOF
AMD Ryzen 9 5950X - Ryzen 9 5000 Series Vermeer (Zen 3) 16-Core 3.4 GHz Socket AM4 105W None Desktop Processor - 100-100000059WOF

Pros: Good cpu

Cons: None runs cooler than my wife's 5800x.

Overall Review: Could have waited for the 3d chips to release but wanted to play co-op with the wife so decided for a pre Xmas '21 build.

Pros: This is one gorgeous mainboard.

Cons: None so far

Overall Review: Finally decided to stop buying cheap mainboard and this one is perfect. Paired with 64gb gskill at 3800mhz and a strix 3080ti. Can't be more pleased right now.

Bright and easy install

Airgoo PC RGB LED Strip Light, 3pcs Magnetic LED Strip for M/B with 12V 4-Pin RGB LED headers, Compatible with ASUS Aura, MSI Mystic Light, ASROCK Aura RGB Led, Gigabyte RGB Funsion

Pros: Easy install

Cons: I expected these to be the extension type not the 3 off one. It made me rethink my strips but everything worked out perfectly and I am very happy with how things turned out. Last batch I bought strung together and was easier to wrap around things like case side etc. With my parts choices I was able to put 2 points in the corners of my case and add all 3 light strips in concealed areas.

Overall Review: Good product but mid purchased as I wanted string together type. Still worked out great and I was able to rethink my plan and get these installed.
