Most Favorable Review

It's red and It's fast !

CORSAIR Vengeance LPX 16GB (2 x 8GB) 288-Pin PC RAM DDR4 3200 (PC4 25600) Intel XMP 2.0 Desktop Memory Model CMK16GX4M2B3200C16R
CORSAIR Vengeance LPX 16GB (2 x 8GB) 288-Pin PC RAM DDR4 3200 (PC4 25600) Intel XMP 2.0 Desktop Memory Model CMK16GX4M2B3200C16R

Pros: -It's clocked at 2933 right out of the box with my new Ryzen 5 series, I've tried to run it at 3200 but it's still unstable

Cons: - None so far !

Most Critical Review

Possibly one of the worst controllers I've tried.

Microsoft Xbox Wireless Controller - White
Microsoft Xbox Wireless Controller - White

Pros: - Bluetooth

Cons: - It started drifting left after 2 months of use. - Getting worse with time. - Totally not worth the $50 price tag if I need to buy another one after 3 months of use.

Overall Review: - Comparable to cheap $15 wired controllers.

Platinum 750w for $75 it's too hard to pass on

Rosewill Quark Series 750W Full Modular Gaming Power Supply with LED Indicator, 80 Plus Platinum Certified, Single +12V Rail, Intel 4th Gen CPU Ready, SLI & Crossfire Ready - Quark-750
Rosewill Quark Series 750W Full Modular Gaming Power Supply with LED Indicator, 80 Plus Platinum Certified, Single +12V Rail, Intel 4th Gen CPU Ready, SLI & Crossfire Ready - Quark-750

Pros: - 750w - Platinum rated - 5 year warranty - LED indicator - Sweet fully modular (I can use some more extra cables though)

Cons: - Only two cables for GPU hard to run 2 GPUs with 2 (6+2) pin connectors. - My power cable is a little loose but I managed to work around that.

Overall Review: Only have this for a little over a month at the time of writing this review. I will update if anything goes wrong with it. So far I'm loving my new PSU and it saves me some money overtime. Huge upgrade from my 80+ bronze rated PSU.

Triple fan, great software, huge heatsink.

ASUS ROG Strix Radeon RX 580 O8G Gaming OC Edition GDDR5 DP HDMI DVI VR Ready AMD Graphics Card with RGB Lighting (ROG-STRIX-RX580-O8G-GAMING)
ASUS ROG Strix Radeon RX 580 O8G Gaming OC Edition GDDR5 DP HDMI DVI VR Ready AMD Graphics Card with RGB Lighting (ROG-STRIX-RX580-O8G-GAMING)

Pros: Just like the title says. - Pretty cool card in terms of looks and temps. - Triple fan , RGB, and gigantic heat sink.

Cons: - Beefy card make sure your case will fit. - Sometimes it blocks the pci-e slot for 2 way cross fire setup. - Pricey.

Overall Review: - A fast card with only 8 pin connector. The card runs about 60-70 while gaming. Overclock is pretty hard since this is already factory OC.

Blue (?) No worries fit my black and white / blue color scheme

Sapphire Radeon NITRO+ RX 580 8GB GDDR5 PCI-E Dual HDMI / DVI-D / Dual DP w/ Backplate SPECIAL EDITION (UEFI), 100411NT+8GSEL
Sapphire Radeon NITRO+ RX 580 8GB GDDR5 PCI-E Dual HDMI / DVI-D / Dual DP w/ Backplate SPECIAL EDITION (UEFI), 100411NT+8GSEL

Pros: - Factory overclocked to 1430, base clock of RX 580 is 1340 and some can't even be stable at 1400. - Memory is 2100 while base is 2000. - Clean looking.

Cons: - 8+6 connector and draws a lot of power. - More expensive than other versions.

Overall Review: This is a pretty expensive card for RX 580 version. I had a ROG STRIX RX 580 but this one still performs better out of the box. Do not need to worry about manually overclocking and find the sweet spot for each single game. For enthusiast I would totally recommend this if it complies with your color scheme. For a budget gamer, I would find the cheapest RX 580 version instead.

good value
