Most Favorable Review

Excellent product at a price

Noctua NT-H2 3.5g, Pro-Grade Thermal Compound Paste incl. 3 Cleaning Wipes (3.5g)
Noctua NT-H2 3.5g, Pro-Grade Thermal Compound Paste incl. 3 Cleaning Wipes (3.5g)

Pros: -High end thermal paste with excelent heat transfer -Easy installation (not like liquid metal) -Safe (not like liquid metal) -Nice packing -Being so new you are sure that the thermal paste is new and not sitting on a shelf since 4years.

Cons: -Price -Paste is not brown...

Overall Review: -I installed the paste on both my cpu and gpu (worry free compared to liquid metal). I am not a big OC'er or anything like that, all i want is a SILENT computer and the paste helps a little bit. I am currently running my GTX 1070 at 2ghz with fan speed around 1300rpm and the temps are around 52c when gaming! (ok i have a RAIJINTEK MORPHEUS II with 2 Noctua NF-S12A PWM... that might help!) -Included wipes do leave a residu, but as stated by Noctua it doesn't mather and wont affect temps. They tell you that you can also wipe the excess and it will be clean. (but you're buying thermal paste not cleaning wipes...) -Would i buy again? Definitely! Am I a Noctua fanboy? Probably!

Ice ice baby

RAIJINTEK MORPHEUS II CORE EDITION - Superior High-End VGA Cooler, 12* 6mm Heat-Pipe & 129 fins, Fully Black Coated, 26 RAM Heat-Sink & 1 Big VRM Heat-Sink, Fan clip options for 12025 & 12013 fans
RAIJINTEK MORPHEUS II CORE EDITION - Superior High-End VGA Cooler, 12* 6mm Heat-Pipe & 129 fins, Fully Black Coated, 26 RAM Heat-Sink & 1 Big VRM Heat-Sink, Fan clip options for 12025 & 12013 fans

Pros: -Cools the GPU -Comes with all sorts of heatsyncs for all the small parts -Easy for me to install

Cons: -Huge -Does not come with a GPU fan header to PWM fan adapter like the Gelid CA-PWM-02

Overall Review: -Vrm heatsync does not fit the holes on a gtx1070 mini from zotac... but since they are at the left of the gpu, the heatsync would hit the heatpipes anyway, so i just kept the original vrm heatsync. -Does not come with fan so that raises the price but i can get npctua's so thats a plus -Gelid CA-PWM-02 or anything similar is a MUST imo

Great mobo and chipset.

ASRock B450M PRO4 AM4 AMD Promontory B450 SATA 6Gb/s Micro ATX AMD Motherboard
ASRock B450M PRO4 AM4 AMD Promontory B450 SATA 6Gb/s Micro ATX AMD Motherboard

Pros: - 6+3 power phase for cooler vrm and possibly more oc room on a micro atx! -Heatsync on all vrm! - pcie-x1 over pcie-x16 so i can hide my sound card and not restrict airflow to my gpu. -ram support xmp profiles without issues. -pairs well with Ryzen 1700x

Cons: -4sata ports only -m2_2 disables sata3

Overall Review: not enough Micro-ATX motherboard on the market for AM4, especially x370/x470 and they all have weak vrms. You can look at the Gigabyte AMD B450 AORUS M... seems like the only other choice....

Wonderfull display

LG 34WK650-W Black/Silver 34" FHD 1080p HDR AMD FreeSync UltraWide LED Monitor, 300 cd/m2, HDMI, DisplayPort, Tilt, Height Adjustable, VESA Compatible
LG 34WK650-W Black/Silver 34" FHD 1080p HDR AMD FreeSync UltraWide LED Monitor, 300 cd/m2, HDMI, DisplayPort, Tilt, Height Adjustable, VESA Compatible

Pros: -34"... THIRTY FOUR!!!! -IPS -HDR -Large screen -Really bright -Beautiful colors -Nice overall built quality and finish -Adjustable stand/vesa mount -Decent refresh rate 75hz instead of 60 (even without freesync, i got a gtx1070 and it runs a 75hz) -Price

Cons: EDIT: Unfortunately i had to return the monitor in the first week because of dead pixels... Bought a LG 34wk500 from worstbuy, dead pixels too and then went to my local store a bought a LG 34um88c that has no dead pixel and is WQHD! Not quite impressed with LG at that point... but i really wanted 34 ultrawide ips monitor! -"low" resolution (you get what you pay for, this screen is not 900$+) -High latency 5/14 ms (you get what you pay for, this screen is not 900$+) -Low refresh rate (you get what you pay for, this screen is not 900$+) -HDMI is only like 5 or 6 feet... once again... (you get what you pay for, this screen is not 900$+)

Overall Review: -For the price i think this is a really good screen, i don't play CS:GO or games that need an insane refresh rate/latency. -Assasin's Creed Origins looks FAWSOME (Yeah that awesome!) (I'm so 2017) -Nice packaging, solid box and lots of foam. -Comes with white ac cord AND white hdmi

Rock Solid for me
