Pros: Looks good and performs as it should.
Cons: Only thing I can think of is that the leds stay on when the computer is in sleep mode. It is a bit annoying but not a big deal.
Overall Review: Worked right away at the rated speed. Using an asus b450 tuf motherboard and a ryzen 5 2600. Nice lighting and works well with arua.
Normally I am not into RGB and I won't spend the extra it costs vs standard parts. But I like GEIL memory and it was on sale. So I figured might as well becasue I needed a new ram kit that was more compatible with my motherboard.
Pros: Well built overall. Nice rubber isolation pads. Move fair amount of air. I like that the leds can be turned off.
Cons: Led lighting is kind of poorly done. Could have used transparent fan blades. Fans are loud.
Overall Review: I replaced some 1,200 rpm fans with these because one had a failing bearing. I could barely hear the old fans. But these are much louder.
Normally fan noise dose not really bother me unless it has a bad bearing, but these are annoyingly loud. Quieter than server fans at least. Well a jet engine is quieter than server fans haha
Pros: Good grind and was sharp
Cons: It has a bent handle tang, no way scales will stay attached with it bent like it is. I contacted condor since they are supposed to have a life time warranty and they never got back to me. This will be the last condor product that I buy.
Pros: Build quality is good for the price, nice front panel cables and enough room to run them behind the motherboard tray. No sharp edges that I have found and the paint is nice. It is a bit flimsy but not overly so. Pretty solid case for the $20 I paid.
Cons: Thick paint makes installing expansion slot screws a bit of a pain. I had to use a nut driver and a case screw that I did not care about to clean out the threads. Works fine after but the metal is soft so care must be taken not to strip it out.
Overall Review: Using the case for a simple low power draw home server(celeron j1900) for multi-media storage and back up. Works fine for this use.
Pros: Worked right away at my ryzen 5 2600 CPUs maximum memory speed of 2933 after enabling XMP. No issues when running a memtest86 test. I like the low profile heat spreaders, they are a bit flashy but not overly so.
Cons: Non so far.
Overall Review: Bought becasue it was on my msi a320 grenade motherboard's QVL for pinnacle ridge CPUs, and I had read good things about team group memory and customer service. Works great and is a noticeable performance increase over my previous 2133mhz memory. I am a bit annoyed with newegg though, shortly after I ordered the memory they dropped the price from $129.99 to $109.99 lol
Pros: Faster than a reference 580, solid build quality, very good cooler, looks great. No issues in the several months I have owned it.
Cons: Draws a lot of power under load. It takes up 2 and a 1/4 slots, could be a negative for some but is not an issue for my system.
Overall Review: nice card and a massive improvement over my rx 560.
Pros: Well built case, thick gauge steel and nice paint. the fans are quiet and move a decent amount of air. the card reader works well and so dose the fan controller. Lots of room for radiators if you water cool. Great airflow. Lots of room for cable management with a lot of tie down points.
Cons: Not much that I can think of. The size may be a con for some, It is big for a micro atx case. But the size makes it easy to work on.
Overall Review: Been using for over a year with no issues. Cooling is great with the three stock 120mm fans. I would have preferred the black case but they were out of stock at the time.
Pros: Low cost and works well. Transfer speed seems about right for an average usb 2.0 flash drive.
Cons: The cap dose not fit very securely, but honestly for the price I do not really care.
Pros: Very stable and seems to be well built. Pretty good support from MSI. Ran with a ryzen 5 1400 just fine without flashing the bios. With current bios works great with ryzen 5 2600.
Cons: early on the bios was pretty poor but there were a few updates that took care of it gradually. Took several months. -1 egg for the bios issues.
Overall Review: Been using it for over a year with no issues other than the now fixed bios. I don't overclock so this is all I need for a motherboard. I do wish it was black instead of brown though.
Pros: Used for over a year without a single issue. Well built with a reasonably quiet fan.
Cons: Non that I can think of.
Overall Review: Solid low budget power supply. I paid about $36 for it last year and I have had no issues whatsoever with it. I recently replaced it with an EVGA supernova 550 G2 becasue I wanted a modular power supply with black cables. I will be keeping the 600 b1 to build a system out of take off parts (I made a few upgrades...) from my pc to use for a backup system.
Pros: Solid black sleeved cables, compact and very quiet with eco mode on under normal use. Still pretty quiet when the fan is running.
Cons: Nothing really just a small annoyance. The atx cable is very thick on the motherboard side and is difficult to route in my system.
Overall Review: My first modular power supply. It helped with cable spaghetti some, but I had to use all but one cable. If I get a sata power to molex adapter for my fan controller I can remove one cable. At $50 on sale it was only about $13 more than the evga 600b I replaced. My old PSU did not fail I just wanted a gold rated modular power supply.
Pros: good front panel cable length . SSD mount . decent fans .looks nicer than it is .
Cons: Very ,very flimsy . Blindingly bright power indicator led . Some sharp edges .
Overall Review: By far the flimsiest computer case i have owned . The case can not even support the weight of the power supply without bending . I expected it to be flimsy because of the low price , but its just terrible . The box my mother board came in is sturdier . The power led is as bright as a cheap led flash light . I will be replacing this case .
