Awesome chip, My daily/Work Machine

AMD A10-7700K - A10-Series Kaveri Quad-Core 3.4 GHz Socket FM2+ 95W AMD Radeon R7 Desktop Processor - AD770KXBJABOX
AMD A10-7700K - A10-Series Kaveri Quad-Core 3.4 GHz Socket FM2+ 95W AMD Radeon R7 Desktop Processor - AD770KXBJABOX

Pros: Have had this since basically 2 weeks from release day! Its a great chip. OC'd to 4Ghz on all 4 cores! Temps are great w/ CM TX3. Blows through all tasks! My machine boots in 3 sec with a 60GB Kingston SSD. Love the flat IPC, way better gaming performance than Piledriver setups. Quite a move for AMD. Beat my 6800k @ 4.6 in some benchmarks (this chip running at 4Ghz). Better gaming performance too.

Cons: Doesn't OC aswell as Piledriver (but it has better IPC anyway). FGLRX for Linux (Linux Catalyst) isn't good unless you have an out-of-box linux setup. Any sort of a semi-custom setup and it probably won't work for you.

Overall Review: I use a dGPU with this on linux. This is my daily CPU. My work computer is the machine i use all day every day. Mostly its used for office applications, development applications (sublime, Chromium, Chrome, Firefox w/ Dev tools, Libreoffice).

Most Critical Review

Connection Issue

AZiO AWU254 802.11g 54Mbps Wireless Pen Adapter IEEE 802.11b/g USB 2.0 Up to 54Mbps Wireless Data Rates
AZiO AWU254 802.11g 54Mbps Wireless Pen Adapter IEEE 802.11b/g USB 2.0 Up to 54Mbps Wireless Data Rates

Pros: Connects to the internet, pretty fast setup.

Cons: Overheats! Every 5-20 minutes it disconnects, sometimes taking other USB devices with it (has crashed my USB hub on a different port 3 times already). DLing files @ high speeds makes it disconnect about every 10 minutes.

Overall Review: I bought this because of all the good reviews and people saying it has such a steady connection. I have been looking to replace my horrible D-Link DWL-120 USB Adapter, but it seems that everything I buy is even worse. At least it could last like 30 minutes of 500K/s without disconnecting. While this adapter lasts 5-10. Overall I'm disappointed, I was really looking forward to this adapter after reading all the good reviews.

Great ram, fast speeds, 64g in a laptop!

Team Elite 64GB (2 x 32GB) 260-Pin DDR4 SO-DIMM DDR4 3200 (PC4 25600) Laptop Memory Model TED464G3200C22DC-S01
Team Elite 64GB (2 x 32GB) 260-Pin DDR4 SO-DIMM DDR4 3200 (PC4 25600) Laptop Memory Model TED464G3200C22DC-S01

Pros: Worked out of the box on my new Nitro 5 4600h machine. Runs at 3200 as specced.. No impact to heat or battery life noticed.

Overall Review: Micron memory (I think it's E-die?) 64GB in a laptop is just nuts. I'm running VMs on my laptop like nothing... This is the ultimate kit for an upgradable Zen2 laptop like the Nitro 5.

Works great, Rock solid!

Mushkin Enhanced Blackline 16GB (2 x 8GB) DDR4 2400 (PC4 19200) Desktop Memory Model MBA4U240FFFF8GX2

Pros: Runs fine out of the box, using in A320 board with 2400G.

Cons: None

Overall Review: I've used Mushkin for years; they are a great USA based company that is employee owned. While they operate at a lower budget; I've never personally had a problem with them. They typically offer great value and have high quality IC's picked for their modules.

Works great in a server

ASRock A320M-ITX AM4 AMD Promontory A320 SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.1 HDMI Mini ITX AMD Motherboard

Pros: Worked fine with Bios update. Using 2400G in a server. Bottom mounted SSD allows for sleek mounting in a small server chassis. Intel NIC!!!!

Cons: None that I can think of.

Overall Review: I'm using this in a colocated server; this setup of a 2400G + A320 is almost as fast as our Skylake Xeon quad core server in basically every task. It uses less power in general, and runs cooler. Intel has something to be scared about in the server market once some "server" versions of these chips start to ship. The value for this is incredible. Because this server uses so little power we have it colocated in an "atom server" slot.

Great memory @ A great price

Crucial 32GB Kit (16GBx2) DDR4 2400 MT/s (PC4-19200) 260-Pin SODIMM Memory - CT2K16G4SFD824A
Crucial 32GB Kit (16GBx2) DDR4 2400 MT/s (PC4-19200) 260-Pin SODIMM Memory - CT2K16G4SFD824A

Pros: Worked fine in my Nitro 5 Ryzen 2500U laptop! 32GB really lets this laptop expand what it can do! No struggle running 10x copies of visual studio + games. Just worked without any settings changes

Cons: Nothing

Overall Review: 2400mhz is the standard for laptops.... most laptops won't let you increase the memory speed regardless of the speed you purchase. Therefore this 2400mhz kit is perfect for any laptop with expandable memory.
