Pros: 165MHz refresh via DP cable
FreeSync (G-Sync tho not "official")
1ms response time
Comes w/ HDMI cable
Cons: Max resolution 1920x1080 (Windows sometimes says it supports 4K in listing but looks a bit odd if tried)
No height adjust on monitor stand (sits lower to desk than I prefer)
Does not come with DP cable
Overall Review: I would recommend for anyone who needs a decent monitor, but keep an eye out for ones that have specified 2K or 4K resolution.
Pros: * Decent price
* Higher speeds that usual (2400MHz/2666MHz)
* Shipped and received in a timely manner
Cons: * Higher latency (CAS 22) than kits with lower speeds
* Higher timings (22-22-22-52) than other kits
Overall Review: If you're looking for decent RAM at a decent price, this is a good kit. If you are looking for lower CAS and timing, you might be better off with lower MHz kit, but I have had no real issues with this set as of yet.
Pros: One USB 3 port on front
Room for numerous case fans
Great options for cable management
Comes with a case fan preinstalled
Removable cage for up to four 3.5" drives
Place for two 2.5" SSDs behind the solid side panel
Cons: Not sure why both USBs ports on the front are not USB 3.
The case is too narrow for using the Cooler Master Hyper 212 EVO - CPU Cooler with 120mm PWM Fan; the copper tips of the pipes presses against the acrylic to a point it bows the acrylic out.
The case fan that comes with this one is clear with red LEDs.
Location of the SSDs means needing to have an L-shaped SATA cable connector for them instead of a straight one.
Overall Review: I would recommend for anyone who uses a CPU that comes with a stock cooler, not for anyone who plans to use an aftermarket unless it's an AIO.
Pros: Fast burns, easy install, low noise level when reading/burning a disc.
Cons: Did not come with burning software. Luckily I had an older Nero copy lying around. Yes I know it's an OEM drive but all the others I ordered that were came w/ software.
Overall Review: If it came w/ software it'd be a better deal. Even w/o the software it deserves a 5.
