We have a winner

Patriot Viper Steel 32GB (2 x 16GB) 288-Pin PC RAM DDR4 3600 (PC4 28800) Intel XMP 2.0 Desktop Memory Model PVS432G360C8GK
Patriot Viper Steel 32GB (2 x 16GB) 288-Pin PC RAM DDR4 3600 (PC4 28800) Intel XMP 2.0 Desktop Memory Model PVS432G360C8GK

Pros: Works as advertised

Cons: None

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

AMD Gift - Ryzen Equipped to Win Game Bundle, Redemption Expires: 2/15/2020
AMD Gift - Ryzen Equipped to Win Game Bundle, Redemption Expires: 2/15/2020

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.

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.

Cons: None.

Overall Review: Wish I could get deals like this on everything I buy

Old school case

Rosewill THOR V2 ATX Full Tower Gaming PC Computer Case, Supports: E-ATX & XL-ATX, 4 Dual-Speed Fans, 10 Expansion Slots

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.

Reliable!

Pros: -XMP and forget about it

Cons: -None

Overall Review: Runs flawlessly and tested with flying colors in full memtest86 scan.

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.
