Overall Review: My Ryzen 3600 (OC to 4.2Ghz) idles at 28c and under load the highest I've seen is 60c with this paste and a Deepcool Gammaxx GTE. 3.5g of top shelf thermal paste at this price is a no-brainer. I'll be using this paste for every build I do from now on. Noctua knows what they're doing when it comes to cooling.
Gskill Quality with some bling
Pros: - Awesome tight timings - Didn't have to do anything, ran at 3200 right out of the box - Pretty RGB action - B-Die!
Overall Review: This is probably the best 3200 RGB RAM in this price range. Being B-die, it overclocks well. I've been using Gskill RAM since Gskill started making RAM (almost 20 years) and have never been disappointed, still have an 10 year old system running 4 Gskill DDR2 sticks and it keeps chugging. I expect that this ram will prove to be just as reliable as the years go by.
Great Airflow, nice aRGB fans.
Pros: - Solid airflow - Supports up to 6 fans - Includes 3 aRGB 3 pin fans - Amazing cable management
Cons: Can be a little confusing wiring up the fans the first time
Overall Review: It's a great looking case with awesome airflow. I bought 3 Deepcool CF120 fans to fill the extra spots and they sync up with the included fans perfectly. I decided to bypass the included aRGB hub and connect them to my motherboard, which took a few minutes to figure out how to do, but it is manageable. Cable management is great in this case, and I was able to attach 2 fan hubs in the back with no problem as there's about an inch of space to work with behind the mobo plate. I'd buy this case again in a heartbeat. For anyone wondering about the included fans, they are currently not for sale on any website, but if you email Phanteks they will sell them to you directly.
Nice affordable cooler
Pros: - Nice tall heatsink - Copper heatpipes make direct contact with CPU - It's Deepcool
Cons: - The included fan is not aRGB
Overall Review: Great cooler, keeps my OC'd Ryzen 5 3600 running a lot cooler than I thought it would. I ended buying a Deepcool CF120 fan and using that instead of the included fan so that it would sync with the rest of my Deepcool fans, and it looks great! Install was simply, instructions were adequate.
Top Quality PSU!
Pros: -Fully Modular -Very quiet -10 year warranty
Overall Review: You know this is a top shelf PSU as soon as you open the box. It's well packaged and the cables and PSU come in nice cloth bags. Seasonic is known for their quality, and this is a prime example of that quality. I'm happy that there's a 10 year warranty on it, but I sincerely doubt I'll ever need it judging by the looks of it. You won't find a better 650w PSU at this price.
Very nice for the price
Pros: Great sound quality while gaming. Surprisingly good with music as well, with decent bass. Removable mic is great! It's pretty comfortable too.
Cons: As others have said the construction feels a bit cheap, which I knocked an egg off for, even though I got it on sale, a headset sold for $50 should have a slightly more quality feel to it. Also the mic plug (pink end) is a little funny, have had to play with it to get it to work a few time. I am fairly certain it is not my inputs as my last mic had no issues, but I need to test to know for sure.
Overall Review: I got it for nineteen ninety nine on sale with free shipping and it was at my door in two days. I love Newegg. I'm very happy with my purchase for the price, and I'd likely be satisfied even if I payed full price.
