Top-teir b450 board, and good for overclocking.
Pros: -Great build quality. An overall contender for the best b450 board in mATX form factor. -Passive cooling for VRM, which no other mATX b450 board has at the time of writing this review. This helps keep them cool when you place your system under heavy load. This also allows for better thermals while overclocking. -Strong overclocking performance, highly comparable to the more expensive Z370 boards. (Some reviewers actually report no overclocking performance difference between this board and more expensive Z370 boards; do some research). This makes this board a good choice for higher end builds despite not being Z370. -4 ram DIMMs (some b450 boards have 2). -Loads of usb ports on the back. -In typical AsRock fashion, top quality make/construction.
Cons: -In typical AsRock fashion, poor BIOS software. Its usable, but not up to the quality of some other manufacturers. Some functions that you would expect from other BIOS softwares simply don't exist, (though everything essential is present). -Make sure this board supports enough drives for your needs; not as many supported compared to full size ATX. -Only 3 chassis fan headers, so for higher end builds using this board that are using 4+ fans, you will need splitters or a fan hub. -If this product has a mail in rebate, read the fine print terms; you may need to have your rebate date stamped & sent within 10 days of your invoiced date (yikes). Better make sure it ships quickly. Mine did come through though, after 3+ months of waiting (not the typical 6-8 weeks).
Overall Review: -MAKE SURE YOUR RAM IS IN THE CORRECT DIMMS. If you have two ram sticks, they should be installed like this:  [x]  [x] (x = ram). This ensures you are running dual-channel, which is optimal performance.
Great, simple product.
Pros: -Does exactly as advertised. -Very nice sleeving -Good length, which allows you to run the cable through a cable management grommet before connecting your 2 PWM fans, (looks clean). -Shipped fast, unlike many similar products that reportedly take weeks to ship from China.
Pros: -Great price for 144hz -Super tight bezels -Excellent image quality, best TN panel I've ever used. -Very high build quality, feels sturdy and solid.
Cons: -The monitor stand it comes with is poor, with no height adjustability. I highly recommend spending $30 for a monitor desk arm mount. (Though i believe every monitor benefits from one of these).
Overall Review: If you're considering the jump to 144hz, this is a great choice at a good price.
