Most Favorable Review

You need HUE 2 to properly use the fans

NZXT AER RGB 2 - 140mm - RGB LED - Fluid Dynamic Bearing - PWM Fan for Hue 2 - Single
NZXT AER RGB 2 - 140mm - RGB LED - Fluid Dynamic Bearing - PWM Fan for Hue 2 - Single

Pros: - Good concept

Cons: - You need the Hue 2 Controller in order to fully experience it

Overall Review: As the title says, you need the Hue 2 controller in order to control the RGB on the fans. If you have the H500i like me, the Smart-controller won't be able to control the RGB lights on the fans. Each fans have two cables, one for power and another to control the fans RGB which can be daisy chain. I would recommend buying the Hue 2 controller package with the included fans of your prefer size.

NZXT Kraken M22 120mm - All-In-One RGB CPU Liquid Cooler - CAM-Powered - Infinity Mirror Design - Reinforced Extended Tubing - Aer P120mm PWM Radiator Fan LGA 1700 Compatible

Cons: - Died after 1 year of use - Cooling capacity is about the same of stock AMD cooler

Overall Review: If I have the chance to buy another AIO I would skip this and go with a double or triple fan radiator. Would also look another company's AIO solution.

As expected

AORUS AD27QD 27" 144Hz QHD 2560 x 1440 1440P G-SYNC Compatible and FreeSync Gaming Monitor Exclusive Built-in ANC Display HDR 1ms Response Time 10-Bit IPS 95% DCI-P3 Display Port 2 x HDMI 2 x USB 3.0

Pros: - Good size 27" and colors - G-sync compatible - Great stand - Thin bezel

Cons: - Menu doesn't work very well, and navigation with the stick is wonky. - Back RGB lights aren't bright enough if you want some ambient lighting.

Overall Review: Overall I am happy with my purchase bit there's a couple of details you should know. First of all, I have trouble navigating through the menu using the stick it has. Good thing you can over come this by installing the monitor driver to your PC. This gives you access to all the monitor settings. If you wish to control the RGB, you need to download another program. So, in total you need 2 programs to fully control the monitor. Second, in order to properly experience the monitor you need to use the DisplayPort (preferably 1.2 VESA certified). By doing so, G-sync is enable (only with Display Port), you can also lower the refresh rate to 120Hz and now you have the option to use 12-bit colors instead pf 8 or 10-bit (this only in 120Hz).

Pros: 1905 MHz Boost Clock Nice looking RGB Easy to control RGB lighting using RGB Fusion.

Cons: None so far

Overall Review: Somebody mention that the advertised clock speed weren't the one being shown. Came out of the box with the speeds as in the box. Just download Msi Afterburner or Aorus software to control fans and Clock.
