Pros: Very sleek
Performs well in games I play
Much more consistent FPS
Cons: Gets a little hot
Fans can get a little loud
Overall Review: This is a good graphics card that performs well in both 1080p and 1440p. I game on an ultra wide 1440p monitor and this card has no problem staying above at or above 100fps in Apex Legends with everything maxed out. The gun metal grey and black color scheme will fit with any build which is a very big plus. This card can get a little toasty. I lock the fans at 60% speed constantly which makes them audible if you're sitting next to the PC without headphones on, but it's not annoying at all. I have an open air case so airflow is not a problem, but this card was getting up into the 80⁰C and staying there during gaming. That's not an issue, but good case air flow just be taken into consideration with any of the new high end GPUs. Overall I'm happy with the purchase and it's a good upgrade from my 2070.
Pros: Super fast
Absolute steal in terms of price
Cons: I didn't buy more
Overall Review: You won't find a 1tb SSD for less money than this. I see great read/write speeds and it loads up games super quickly. I will definitely be buying more.
Pros: Fast installation
Better than some built in WiFi Chips
Overall Review: Nothing bad to say about this WiFi card. It installs easily and works right our of the box. Downloading the latest available drivers is always recommend to ensure it works to the fullest. I see very good speeds when on my home's WiFi. If your motherboard doesn't have built in WiFi, this is a great addition to your build. Even if your board has WiFi, this could be even better. Very happy with the purchase and if I need another one, I'd buy a TP-Link card.
Pros: Super fast out of the box
Great base and boost clock
Drop in and go installation
Included cooler is a nice touch
Cons: Stock cooler's mounting mechanism
Uneven surface on stock cooler cold plate
No integrated graphics
Overall Review: This chip is a great bargain for the money. For having 12 cores and 24 threads, it's a productivity power house. Gaming is also no sweat for this CPU. There hasn't been a task that I've thrown at this CPU that it can't handle. From rendering large videos during editing, to playing the most demanding titles, it handles it with no issue. I recommend using a better cooler, whether it be a higher end air cooler, all in one liquid cooler, or custom water cooling as it can get a little hot with the stock cooler. If you use the stock cooler, I advise you to lock the CPU voltage to 1.290-1.300. Stock bios settings bring the voltage up to over 1.4 during a heavy load and that causes the chip to get hot. I never saw it thermal throttle however, but if you don't like seeing a high temp, this would be good for you. Overall, I'm very happy with this chip and it's still a great buy even with the recent release of Zen 3 CPUs.
Pros: Built in WiFi
Easy to navigate bios
Great power delivery
Very sleek look
AMD forwards and backwards compatibility
Cons: Chipset fan can get annoying
Overall Review: This board is paired with a 3900x and it's a great combo. Thanks to AMD forwards compatibility, you can update the bios to the latest version and drop in a 5000 series chip and be even faster. I wish the chipset didn't need an active fan, but with great power comes necessary cooling. Plus, gaming with headphones, makes the noise go away. I've purchased 2 of these boards for customer PC builds and I will continue to recommend this board for Ryzen Zen2-3 CPUs.
Pros: Lots of room for activities
Still looks good
Great build quality
Still has space for a CD drive
Cons: Acrylic side panel
Overall Review: This is a great case if you want to load your PC with quite a few 3.5in HDDs and this is one of the few good looking cases that still has space for 5.25in drives. I had no complaints when building in this case. The only downside for me was the acrylic side panel. However I'm sure if it were glass, the costs would be higher. I'd buy this case again and recommend to future customer builds.
Pros: Good entry level 1440p GPU
Fast 1080p card
RGB is a great touch
Overall Review: Very surprised at the performance of the entry level RTX card. The 2060 super fr MSI is a great option at this price. The rgb lights let you customize the the card and add to the aesthetic of your build. The all metal backplate also acts as a heat sink too. This gpu overclocks quite high and stays cool doing it. I'm able to hit 100mhz on the core and 1000mhz on the memory while staying at 70-75⁰C. Overall very pleased with the purchase
Pros: Super fast
Overall Review: This is a lightning quick NVMe stick and it was a great deal getting this paired with a Ryzen 5 3600 on a bundle deal from Newegg. The read/write speeds of this drive a more than adequate especially if you're taking advantage of PCIe gen 4. This chip is definitely good for content creation and very snappy experiences in game load times and production applications.
Pros: Great price/performance
Cons: Stock cooler isn't great
Overall Review: The Ryzen 5 3600 is an awesome chip for the price. It offers great gaming performance and good multitasking performance too. The non X version of the 3600 boosts up to 4.2ghz instead of 4.4ghz but you can certainly reach 3600x levels of performance with even a mild overclock. AMD has really made leaps to get where they are now and theyre products showcase that. If you watch just about any youtube video of a gaming pc being built, regardless of the budget of that build, it's 95% chance going to be an AMD cpu. That says something.
Pros: All blacked out
Quiet performance even with overclock
Overall Review: Very happy with this card and anything from EVGA. They make a great gpu. This card overclocks very easy and quite high. I can be stable with 100mhz on the core clock and 1000mhz on the memory and still be at like 70⁰C in demanding titles. My case is open air so I cant say how it performs in a more closed case, but I'm sure it would be just fine.
Pros: Easily acheives XMP or DOCP
Cons: Heat spreaders can interfere with radiators in the top of most cases
Overall Review: I've used this ram in two builds so far and I will continue to use it for it's competitive pricing and compatibility with both AMD and intel. The ram gets to xmp and doesn't cause any issues during benchmarks and stress tests. The only con is the height of the heatsinks. Depending on your case, they could interfere with a radiator if it's being mounted in the top of the case. I believe most air coolers will clear this ram. Even with all 4 DIMM slots populated. Overall very good ram. Will buy again.
Pros: Good budget option
Overall Review: I'm very pleased with this storage drive. The read/write speeds are very good for a PCIe gen 3 drive. Seeing speeds of up to 2000MB during testing. I use this as a boot drive for one of my gaming pcs and windows boots in about 11 seconds. I'd definitely buy this drive again
Pros: Good sound quality
Convenience with the carrying/charging case
Battery is pretty good
Cons: Received one unit with a bad earbud
Overall Review: Im overall happy with my purchase. I bought two pairs on sale and received a defective pair. The return process was very easy through Newegg. These are certainly more budget oriented and won't give you the listening experience of the airpods pro or any other high end buds, but it does have the benefit of being truly wireless and they get the job done in terms of listening to music wirelessly
Pros: I bought this and didn't realize the ports didn't include display port. That's my fault and not the product. Very nice picture
Cons: Older video outputs.
Overall Review: No real complaints
