Overall Review: Working just fine so far with a cpu 3600 gpu 2060. Was pretty much the most affordable option on purchase.
Overall Review: Hasn't broke yet and was very affordable.
Overall Review: Works ASRock B450M/AC AM4 AMD Promontory B450 SATA 6Gb/s Micro ATX AMD Motherboard
You have to plug one stick in the proper slot. Boot reboot. Then you can use 2 sticks with XMP.
Pros: Fits A50, phone hasn't broke yet. Dropped it a few times
Overall Review: Part of the reason I bought it was for the red edges, makes it easier to find it.
Pros: Cheap and works. Fast charging works. Bright colors so I can find the cords easier. Many cords. Braided cords.
Overall Review: I'm tired of everything being white or black. I like being able to quickly find my cord in the car or at home. If it's dark etc.
Overall Review: Cheapest or almost the cheapest 480 GB SSD at time of purchase. No issues thus far.
Pros: Was the cheapest mobo at the time of purchase that was ryzen 3600 ready.
Overall Review: Install 1 ram stick in the proper slot first. Boot reboot, then you can use 2 sticks with xmp. Second mobo this year that I've had to do this with. It is normal.
Pros: No driver issues. Works flawlessly out of the box.
Cons: Mail in rebate? You want me to damage the box? No ty that hurts resell. Far less FPS then a 5700 non xt.
Overall Review: I own a 5700 non xt and one of these. The 2060 has no driver kinks. The card is not for me, but it's under my watch, so I did not want any issues. Other models may have better cooling and a higher stock clock. But this was the cheapest one I could find with 2 fans.
Pros: Works as described.
Cons: No child safety cap. Deadly.
Overall Review: I had an very open loop even bugs dropped dead if they got into the water. My 30 gallon res was starting to smell. This got it back to normal.
Pros: 1440p, 144 hz, HDR, free sync(also works with nvidia), 1 ms(probably?). Great price, I saw a cheaper one but it had poor reviews. 2 year warranty on this. It does what it says it will. I didn't expect much from HDR but when I turn it off my eyes get blasted by that good ol TN brightness. So you can have HDR 144hhz 1440p free sync all on at the same time. As well as hopefully 1 ms, I turned "response time" on in the menu.
It has a power brick instead of a normal plug in, which makes sense. Separating a monitor from it's biggest heat source. Half of my screen feels nearly room temp. I think this is a smart move. Also if your power supply fails you do not have to dig into your monitor. Anyone who has ever owned a piece of electronics knows heat is a killer.
Stand is rock solid, you can tilt it. It's made of METAL. Despite that this monitor is insanely light weight, once again likely because the power brick is outside the monitor.
Cons: Day one, it does what it says. I don't have the ability to test 1 ms. I could say oh no the stand doesn't go up and down. But my chair sure does if that's really an issue. If I find problems I WILL edit this.
Overall Review: The cheapest 1440p 144hz 1 ms hdr monitor without a staggering amount of bad reviews. As someone who has been messing with water cooling quite a bit, I can't say how happy I am that they displaced heat outside the monitor. Probably a very underlooked advantage that allows it to do what it does at this cost. Not an IPS, but you can't really get 1 ms with an IPS, from what I've seen on pro reviews.
Pros: Has better performance then a 2060 Super.
Powerhouse for the price.
Works fine in most games.
Sapphire has Trixx, with Trixx boost coming soon, really amazing looking tool.
Cons: Almost unplayable in Chivalry medieval warfare.
Sapphire only has a 2 year warranty.
Edit\Update 10-21-2019: Wattman hardly ever crashes anymore.
Nvidia has less bugs.
Overall Review: Drivers up to date as of today. DP cable to my monitor + 2nd windows fresh install, WITHOUT any third party Anti Virus software running until windows fully updates got rid of a strange FPS cap issue. Use PCI gen 3 in bios.
Wattman has a ton of amazing features. But as of now some of them cause problems, look up driver notes. Enhanced sync is off, hardware acceleration is off. Overlay can cause issues, I don't recommend using it. VSR can bug out.
I point my blower back at the closet to keep the out of my room ^^. Can overclock as well or better then any AIB card, but will be noisier. Doesn't bother me with a closed case, comp on the floor and the sound of my video game. You can set the fan curve to only ramp up while gaming.
Overall Review: It's the 2nd cheapest 7200 rpm HD I could find with 4 gigs. The other HD I looked at had issues in the reviews. Will update if any problems arise.
Pros: Had a good price at the time. Still working. Bought it 7/24/2016
Overall Review: idk what prices are not, still works, quality brand
Pros: Got my display up to 144hz for my new graphics card.
Overall Review: New video cards do not have DVI plugs. My HDMI input on my monitor only allowed for 60hz, so I bought this, now I'm back at 144hz.
Overall Review: Doesn't work on windows 7
Pros: Works exactly as expected.
Cons: Not a 3600 :)
Overall Review: Rig Rzyen 2600
Team T-FORCE VULCAN TUF Gaming Alliance 16GB (2 x 8GB) Plug one ram in A2 slot first to let the bios load it if you choose the same mobo. 3200 mhz c16
ASRock B450M PRO4 AM4
Sapphire Radeon RX 5700
Pros: Cheap and works as described.
Overall Review: cl16 3200mhz dual channel on my ASRock B450M PRO4 works just as it says. Had to plug 1ram stick into the A2 slot so my mobo would upload it's settings. Restart etc now I'm in business! Stress tests passed. Contact tech support of your mobo or ram mnfer if you have problems, 1 email response and I was all set. Ryzen 2600
Pros: Everything works as described! You can also make a windows ISO with asrocks utility to reinstall windows! Tech support got back to me in 24 hours, easy fix(below). I thought my ram wouldn't not work at 3200 because it's not on the reference support list but it does. Ryzen 2600, 3200 cl16 ram dual channel.
Team T-FORCE VULCAN TUF Gaming Alliance 16GB (2 x 8GB) 288-Pin DDR4 SDRAM
Cons: I should have emailed tech support earlier.
Overall Review: Tech support, ty Eric!
"Enter into the UEFI bios restart the m/b and press F2/Del on your KB.
Once you inside the UEFi bios. Go to Advance mode Press F9 (load default setting), and go to OC tweaker tab. Load the XMP, and select the DRAM FREQ to 3200mhz first. If you able to boot up with 3200mhz.
Please start it with one stick of memory first. The memory has to install on the A2 (2nd DIMM) slots.
Please have memory install on A2 first. "
Pros: Still blowing air out of my case, cleaned dust off the blades maybe once a year. Just won't die.
Cons: Might outlive me.
Overall Review: Still pushes our air.
Cons: Only works on Windows 10
Overall Review: Only works on Windows 10
Pros: Lasted 5 years did what it was supposed too.
Cons: Died after 5 years
Pros: Mouse has a great feel to it, not to big. Very sturdy braded cord. 2 side buttons. Has worked great for over a year.
Cons: No dpi adjuster, but idc. Middle wheel seems weak but hasnt broke yet.
Overall Review: I made this new review because I made a different review 2 weeks ago and I cannot seem to find anywhere I can edit it.
2 weeks ago my mouse kept double clicking. I contacted tech support, they linked me a frimware update link. It fixed my mouse! I was fully updated with razer synapse. But the link they provided was different. If you have the double click issue contact tech support!
Pros: Its like computer magic compared to my old 7200 rpm drive. Slap your OS on this and have fun.Everything opens very fast. I got it on sale for 54$ on black friday can't beat that.
Cons: Small. The windows transporter software did not work. I tried it multiple times and followed the simple instructions. I am taking a egg of for this, I was hoping to easily transfer some work programs but noooo. If I did not get the drive for 54$ id take off another egg. It took over 5 hours to reinstall everything and update windows.
Overall Review: I replaced my failing HD with this HD. I only have my OS on it and 1 my favorite video games. Windows 7 fully updated takes up a little less then half of this drive. I'm sure the windows transferring software is great when it works.
My old 7200 rpm HD took 12 hours+ to reinstall windows and my work programs.
Pros: Runs as advertised. Cheap and even cheaper when on sale. I think I paid 34$.
Cons: You have to manually set it to 1600 mhz in bios. (800 mhz it times it by 2)
Overall Review: I bought this to match my other pair for a total of 8 gig.
Pros: Seems cooler then my stock fan. I idle at 31c without any other case fans.
I5 4690k CPU
Cons: Back fan is weak. You have to take off your mobo to install it.
Overall Review: I paid 60$ for it, it was the cheapest water cooling unit at the time. I suspect a good cpu fan would do the same or better for the same price, but might be louder. I always wanted to try out water cooling.
