Awesome mainstream card.
Pros: - Excellent for all mainstream games and more. - 8GB Memory is great for games like Civ 6 and Apex Legends, as these titles can use in excess of 4GB. - XFX 3 year Warranty.
Cons: - Random blue LED on the card itself near the power connector. Breaks up an otherwise all black/red interior.
Overall Review: - I purchased this so I could retire my now antique XFX HD6870 1GB and I couldn't be more pleased with the RX 570. 7 years out of my old card and it still works, hoping I'll get similar mileage from this one. - Future proof yourself and grab a 8GB over a 4GB card as the RX 570 does have the grunt to use it.
Excellent RAM for the price.
Pros: - 1600mhz DDR3 plug and play. No tweaking needed to get the advertised speeds. - Excellent price. - Lifetime Warranty. - Cheap way to get 16GB of dual channel in an older system and breathe new life into anything with RAM hungry WIN 10 and Chrome.
Cons: - Fairly loose timings at CAS 11 although there really isn't any perceivable difference between these and my 1600mhz CAS 9 Snipers. - Having decorative foil stickers on the memory itself that say Warranty void if removed is making me hope they never fall off with age. Despite DDR3 becoming obsolete.
Pros: - Tons of internal room within the visible portion of the case. Way more than necessary for any air cooled system. - Plenty of holes for cable routing. - 3 basic RGB fans included with a controller. - Small breather holes on the front of the case so the RGB fans are actually functional. - Magnetized plastic mesh "filters" on the Top Front and Bottom.
Cons: - Some of the upper internal room of the case could have been sacrficed for more room under the PSU covering/divider. Not a lot of room where the hard drive cage is although it is adjustable. I have a SSD and 2 HDDs in my system and the room is tight with all of the necessary cables for the PSU populating the same space. Without the proper routing you couldend up with a bulge in the side panel. - My Thermaltake Frio barely touches the glass when the system is fully assembled, an extra 5mm of room would have sufficed. So beware if you have a tall tower style cooler. I had to remove part of the plastics to get a better fit without forcing the side panel on, which would create a lot of pressure on the mainboard and socket.
