Most Favorable Review

Good memory kit, especially for Ryzen

CORSAIR Vengeance LPX 16GB (2 x 8GB) 288-Pin PC RAM DDR4 3000 (PC4 24000) Intel XMP 2.0 Memory Kit Model CMK16GX4M2B3000C15
CORSAIR Vengeance LPX 16GB (2 x 8GB) 288-Pin PC RAM DDR4 3000 (PC4 24000) Intel XMP 2.0 Memory Kit Model CMK16GX4M2B3000C15

Pros: 3000Mhz, cl15 very good kit for Ryzen builds

Cons: Affordable if on sale, otherwise normal retail price is a bit expensive, but for the past 2 years RAM has been expensive anyways.

Overall Review: On the ASUS B450m a/csm motherboard it initially runs at 2133, so you will need to go into UEFI to set the profile to 2933 or 3000. After that it works perfectly fine, stable.

Most Critical Review

When it works (which is brief) it was at best mediocre

PowerColor RED DRAGON Radeon RX 560 14CU DirectX 12 AXRX 560 4GBD5-DHAM 4GB 128-Bit GDDR5 PCI Express 3.0 CrossFireX Support ATX Video Card - Brown Box

Pros: When it works it works Good price (when it works)

Cons: Constant crashes and driver errors, to the point where it managed to crash under and high load (League of Legends) which is not very demanding at all.

Overall Review: Ran memtests three passes no failure Mobo and CPU still posted so no problem, and swapped PSU to a higher 500->650w and changed my HDD to a brand new Crucial MX300 SSD Still issues.

Excellent case, High quality

NZXT H400i - MicroATX PC Gaming Case - RGB Lighting and Fan Control - CAM-Powered Smart Device - Tempered Glass Panel - Enhanced Cable Management System - Water-Cooling Ready - White/Black
NZXT H400i - MicroATX PC Gaming Case - RGB Lighting and Fan Control - CAM-Powered Smart Device - Tempered Glass Panel - Enhanced Cable Management System - Water-Cooling Ready - White/Black

Pros: Includes already cable managed backside and smart hub Solid steel construction Minimalist case and good airflow Lots of great features like SSD mounts, PSU shroud, and built in RGB strips

Cons: QC for the RGB strip (not the already premounted one) needs help, 1 was dead on arrival.

Overall Review: For the price I'd recommend this case for sure

Solid SSD

Silicon Power Ace A55 2.5" 512GB SATA III 3D NAND Internal Solid State Drive (SSD) SU512GBSS3A55S25NE
Silicon Power Ace A55 2.5" 512GB SATA III 3D NAND Internal Solid State Drive (SSD) SU512GBSS3A55S25NE

Pros: Price is great Speeds are great I've not had any issues so far

Cons: -

Overall Review: When looking up synthetic benchmarks remember that real world read/write will nt match up ever to the synthetic or rated speeds. So I'd say this drive is comparable to the patriot burst or the MX500. Definitely can compare to the 860 Evo for price to performance

Great wireless card

ASUS PCE-AC56 2x2 802.11ac WiFi AC1300 PCIe Adapter

Pros: Build quality is very solid, the metal heatsink is nice and the red color is polished. Easy to assemble and includes a standing mount if you want to attach the antennaes and move them elsewhere Good download speeds, our ISP is 200mbps down and 11mbps up with the card I am getting the rated speeds (of course this will depend and vary on what applications or settings you may be using)

Cons: Full retail price is a bit too much, but usually this card is on sale.

Overall Review: I will chalk this down as the known defect rate most products have, but the antennaes do not stay up very well and the joint part where it can be folded feel too loose. Does not affect the hardware however. I would definitely recommend it if it is on sale.

Solid Budget Drive

XPG SX850 2.5" 256GB SATA III 3D NAND Internal Solid State Drive (SSD) SSD-SX850-256G

Pros: Decent speeds for an SSD, boots up computer in under 8s 256GB is honestly enough for commonly used apps/games (my girlfriend plays League and WoW and some other games) but likely will add a second drive for her later this year so she can have everything she wants on there

Cons: None so far
