CORSAIR Vengeance LPX 16GB (2 x 8GB) 288-Pin PC RAM DDR4 3000 (PC4 24000) Memory Kit Model CMK16GX4M2B3000C15

Pros: -xmp profile works out of box on my ryzen build -solid timmings and speed -simple but cool looking design and low profile of memory is convenient

Cons: - ram cost are currently high do to high demand -didn't get me laid

Overall Review: -Jokes aside I only recently started developing ram preferences other than wanting to have a lot of it. I have a feeling I will be sticking with this line of memory for a long time.

Don't buy if you are in appartments

Pros: Good price from my cousin who bought one before me its solid all around. big reason why I pulled the trigger on one was hopping to work on some online linux courses outside where I focus better.

Cons: Did not get mine, package required signature and fedex would not let me see signature on file, required seller account to view it. Fedex required seller to file claim as well, no clue if they did, new egg rejected assistance because it was signed for. (apparently requiring signiture is least secure option for buyer lol) I believe it was likely delivered to a neighbor who kept it for themselves. Not really sellers fault but whish I had better means to pressure fedex to deal with it.

Overall Review: Good laptop, based on family member who has one, I never got mine, I recommend getting a second stick of ram for dual channel. I did receive stick of ram I bought, now just sitting on my desk. I will never risk buying a laptop online again, even if it is an amazing deal.

Great product, minor bios bugs

GIGABYTE GA-AX370-Gaming 5 (rev. 1.0) AM4 AMD X370 SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.1 HDMI ATX AMD Motherboard
GIGABYTE GA-AX370-Gaming 5 (rev. 1.0) AM4 AMD X370 SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.1 HDMI ATX AMD Motherboard

Pros: - great featureset -good vrm -well built -bios menus are much more intuitive than past gigabyte products I used -ram xmp profile worked out of the box -bios flashing is easy -R5 1600 overclocking issues when changing voltage where fixed for me as of f8 bios update

Cons: - I Had to fight with boot order to finally get linux as the primary boot partition to stick, previously quick selecting other drive resulted in a changed boot order. (Gigabyte I will up to 5 if I can keep boot priorities without having to set it multiple times) - Problem above returns whenever I reset bios and apply desired boot order. It changes after first time i boot windows. - My mouse when in bios is slow and clunky, this does not bother me sense keyboard navigation works great.

Overall Review: -Apart from the bugs I experienced the board looks great works great has solid features and vrm. It works nice with my ryzen 1600 and is another quality motherboard from gigabyte. The support ticket response are a little slower than I am used too but not bad, I would like to see the option to set microphone gain in the bios, but that is just a feature request.

Great video, don't use built in mic

Hyper 212 LED Turbo- Red Top Cover is equipped with dual 120mm PWM Fans with red LEDs by Cooler Master

Pros: -Supports am4 out of box which is nice because I was having trouble getting am4 bracket for hyper 212 evo. -Basically a sexier hyper 212 evo with an extra fan -quite even at 100% cools well -Easy to install

Cons: - Runs cold and is emotionally unavailable -On am4 can only mount with fans facing toward top or bottom of case with the default bracket, really would prefer a second mounting option.
