Great Psu

ASUS ROG Thor 1200 80+ Platinum 1200W Fully Modular RGB Power Supply with LIVEDASH OLED Panel and 10 Year Warranty
ASUS ROG Thor 1200 80+ Platinum 1200W Fully Modular RGB Power Supply with LIVEDASH OLED Panel and 10 Year Warranty

Pros: This is my second one as my first one was defective. But with a quick and simple Rma with Newegg I got another one that’s working great. Being able to see the power draw is awesome. And I’ve had no issues with it.

Cons: Aura sync and armor crate is some pretty bad software. It’s too bad ASUS doesn’t make 1 working app for everything.

Overall Review: Looks great in the ASUS Helios case!

Most Critical Review

Great cooler, but software is no good.

ASUS ROG Ryujin 360 RGB AIO Liquid CPU Cooler 360mm Radiator (Three 120mm 4-pin Noctua iPPC PWM Fans) with LIVEDASH OLED Panel and FanXpert Controls
ASUS ROG Ryujin 360 RGB AIO Liquid CPU Cooler 360mm Radiator (Three 120mm 4-pin Noctua iPPC PWM Fans) with LIVEDASH OLED Panel and FanXpert Controls

Pros: Keeps my 9900k overclocked to 5ghz all cores cool around 70-80 under load while gaming. Very quite. The 3 Noctua fans are some of the quietest i have ever had. And looks amazing if you can get the software to work!

Cons: Armour crate is garbage. Its a 50/50 chance if i can get it to show any info or rgb. Every time i restart my computer i have to try to get armour crate to work to show info or rgb lights on it. For what i paid for this cooler i expected everything to work flawlessly. Fan expert does not work properly with the fan on the pump or radiator fans. I put the rad fans to my fan hub to have control of them and i was able to get fan expert to shut the extremely loud pump fan off. Armour crate has fan controls for the pump and rad but are completely useless in doing anything, and thats if im lucky enough to get to the fan controls in armour crate. Please Asus fix your software. Ive uninstalled everything asus, installed in order, uninstalled some of your asus software to install the other asus software then reinstall what ive uninstalled, with no luck

Overall Review: I did an all Asus build and thats why i went with this aio. But had i known how bad the software is i wound never have went all Asus!

Amazing sound!

Creative Sound Blaster AE-9 Sound Card (Metallic Gray)
Creative Sound Blaster AE-9 Sound Card (Metallic Gray)

Pros: If you want the best sound card on the market then this is the one to buy. Sound blaster been around for a very long time and know what there doing. Easy to install, great software. My headphones have never sounded better! It supports dts for my home theater, which was a must have in a sound card for me. The evga nu or the nu pro does not support dts and is why i never gave it a chance. I upgraded from my old soundblaster z and i am very happy that a did.

Cons: none

Overall Review: If you have onboard sound or a older sound card then this will be a great upgrade! Night and day difference

Rgb looks great

Enermax T.B. RGB 140mm RGB Case Fan, Twister Bearing Technology, Dual - Black; UCTBRGB14-BP2
Enermax T.B. RGB 140mm RGB Case Fan, Twister Bearing Technology, Dual - Black; UCTBRGB14-BP2

Pros: The rgb looks great, it had real potential!

Cons: The fan speed is only controllable by the remote that comes with these fans. No other way to change fan speeds. Would not have bought them if i knew that. Could have been a great fan. Also not sure if its enermax fault or aura sync garbage, but if i pick 1 color for everything to be the fans would be a different color then the rest of the rgb with aura sync,

Overall Review: If you want fan control by remote control only, then these are the fans for you.

Pros: Works like it should and looks great too

Cons: not g/skill fault but aura sync/armour crate is garbage

Overall Review: Works with aura sync if you can get aura sync or armour crate to work

Best Case I've ever owned!

ASUS ROG Strix Helios GX601 RGB Mid-Tower Computer Case for up to EATX Motherboards with USB 3.1 Front Panel, Smoked Tempered Glass, Brushed Aluminum and Steel Construction, and Four Case Fans
ASUS ROG Strix Helios GX601 RGB Mid-Tower Computer Case for up to EATX Motherboards with USB 3.1 Front Panel, Smoked Tempered Glass, Brushed Aluminum and Steel Construction, and Four Case Fans

Pros: It looks great on my desk. The front glass looks amazing! Easy cable management . The air flow seems to be great! My 9900k and ftw3 2080ti stay cool under load

Cons: The aura sync/armour crate software is junk. And this case is a little too pricey! The fan hub is not pwm. I replaced all the 140mn fans with some rgb ones. It supports duel slot vertical gpu slot but not a triple slot gpu, even though it looks like they could have done it, like my phantom x case did.

Overall Review: If you love Asus as much as i do, then the case is a must have!
