We have a winner
Pros: Works as advertised
Overall Review: Bought to replace failing G.Skill set. Originally purchased Patriot 4100MHz 2x16GB set when I built the computer 2 years ago but they didn't jive with my motherboard. Figured I'd give Patriot another go because of the great price point. I chose wisely. Compatible with my ASUS TUF Z-390-PRO GAMING motherboard.
Worse than an afterthought
Overall Review: Redemption expires and I am waiting on other parts for the build that won't arrive before the expiration date. Requires you to have the CPU installed on the machine you unlock the key with. That is draconian. AMD should lift the expiration date on redeeming the code.
Great deal on a great monitor!
Pros: I've never had a problem with any of the open box or refurbished items I've received including this one. Came with all the cables, parts, and literature and in mint condition. And for half the price.
Overall Review: Wish I could get deals like this on everything I buy
Old school case
Pros: -Fits everything I threw at it including a Noctua NH-D15 and an RTX 2080 Ti. -Not an obscene RGB Pride Parade of lighting. Stoic. -Sturdy -Good ventilation
Cons: -Manual that shipped with it was not for the case in question. Had to download PDF from manufacturer's website -Manual in question was really sparse -Cable management on back of the mainboard plate leaves a little bit to be desired -Tight angles for some of the cables to route around the mainboard plate -e-SATA on the front plate. Ha.
Overall Review: Good deal on this case. Affordable. But there's a reason for it... This is a very old design. But it is a good one. There are "snazzier" options out there but for the price this is what you want if practicality is what you are after.
Pros: -Dropped temps on SSD 15-20 degrees Celsius. -Should improve life expectancy of the drive
Cons: -No English instructions but wasn't too difficult to figure out. There are a couple videos on Youtube if you just can't solve it.
Overall Review: Highly recommended for any SSD given how cheap it is and how expensive SSD space is.
