Pros: Great Temps easy to apply ships pretty fast
Cons: Super thick
Overall Review: Great product swear by it. Drastic temp improvements over other brands. Also something I learned hydronaut is for aios and air coolers kryonaut is for ln2. If you are not using ln2 then this is it chief
Pros: Loaded with options. Ryzen 5000 ready. Beautiful board.
Cons: Sb fan blocked off by gpu. Asus software is legit bloat. Hammers on cpu when even idle. Not so good for ram overclocking.
Overall Review: I was using a x570 taichi razer edition. Not sure if this is a upgrade or not but I decided to switch anyway. Xmp enables no issues. Ryzen 7 5800x ready out of box. Bios has so much stuff I'm lost don't even know where to start. Good thing I think. The rgb is Suttle which I like. Trident z neo ram xmp and rgb works with asus rgb software. Heard lots of horror stories about sb fan. I've never had issues with any board using a fan. I've had 3 in total from all different vendors. Asus software is bloated to death. Heavy on cpu usage. The settings I apply are conflicted with armory crate so I'll probably uninstall software. I keep getting a cpu fan error so just set the fan to ignore problem solved. Will not set my same ram timings on this board as I had on taichi razer edition. And the ram I'm using wasn't even on taichi qvl but it's on asus qvl. Bios is all over lots of same settings under different menus. It's like the asus guys who do bios got drunk and threw darts to figure out where stuff will go. Either that or they secretly have asrock people doing their bios. Same issues their to. The presentation of the unboxing was awesome. Loved it. Talked to a gentleman named Adrian who works for asus. I asked a few questions and he replied everytime very fast. Overall I like the board alot. I feel like I'll have more options and customization to my build as with other board when it comes to watercooling. I just wish this board could handle ram overclocking a bit better. I would definitely recommend this board to someone looking for a premium experience and unboxing. Also a experienced user. But probably not someone who is building their own rig for the first time. Overall great board.....
Pros: Very fast
Cons: Silicon gamble sucks. Meaning it's hit or miss if you get a good overclocker.
Overall Review: This cpu is very fast. It's come to the point overclocking isn't worth it anymore. I have voltage set to 1.325. As far as I know that's max recommended voltage for ryzen. With pbo enabled I can hit 5.025 ghz. It's a gaming beast. If you game and stream this is This cpu for you. I'm running with x570 taichi razer edition and gskill trident z neo 3600 mhz 2×16 ram. It's a great combo for those interested. No bios flashing required for cpu update it's ryzen 5000 ready. For thoseing looking to tune ram don't go over 1.025 soc voltage. That's for everyday use not for benchmarking. I've posted some pictures of my results and timings.
Pros: Premium cables. Easy to install. Comes with good quality cable comes
Overall Review: These are awesome. Reasonably priced. I emailed them to ask a question. A gentleman named ken emailed me back within a hour. Was super polite, and very helpful. These cables will work on all atx power supplies. Comes with 2+ 8 pin connectors for cpu, a 24 pin,and 2 6+2 pin psu connectors. These look great in my system and work with my 3070 zotac Amp holo. I'll be using these from now on. Why spend almost 200 on cable mods. I also have had Asia horse cables and had nothing but problems.
Pros: Great looking board. Rgb is beautiful. Lots of features. You can use rgb in bios instead of more more bload software. Very good vrm for cpu overclocking. Can adjust x570 chipset fan curve within bios.
Cons: Someone needs to organize the bios a little better.
Somebody else needs to work on the horrendous software. It's buggy and the app store is saturated with bload ware.
Very hard to overclock ram with. I heard the way to go is with b550 if your into memory overclocking
Overall Review: I've had this board for a few months. I reviewed when I bought and received it. Since I've had it for a while I thought I would update. I'm pairing with a 3070, and resizable bar works great. I've also tested with a 6700xt. Works great also. I'm using a 5800x I've also tested with a 5900x. I managed to overclock both with no problems. Vrms stayed nice and cool. While maintaining high clocks for benchmarking. Overclocking ram is also pretty difficult though but xmp enables with no issues. I haven't had any trouble whatsoever with this board. Other than that Everything else I want it to do it just does, and doesn't give me any problems. The look of the board is really nice. It really is a premium board. The unboxing experience is also nice. I cannot recommend this board enough. Everything is just plug and play. It handles whatever I throw at it. it's simple to use bios isn't too complicated. Great board.
Cpu Ryzen 7 5800x 4.85 ghz
Ram Corsair dominator platinum 2×16 3800 mhz 16,19,16,16,38 1/1 ratio
Gpu Zotac 3070 Amp holo
I've since switched ram. I thought this would be worth updating. I am now using 2×16 3600 mhz cl14 gskill trident z neo. I got the timings set to 14,13,14,14,22. 3633 mhz. These will not go to 3800 mhz no matter what I do. I've tried everything. But 3633 I can keep 1 to 1 ratio. Maybe good Samsung b-die is just to taxing for the imc
Rant time........... Also another thing I noticed and this goes with every board vendor. It seems like they favor Intel. Have you seen the z590 taichi compared to x570 taichi. X570 taichi don't even come with stickers 🤣 there's so much more attention to detail in packaging, board detail. the bios is way better on Intel. Even the spinning gear on the z590 taichi itself is awesome. I wish all these main companies put as much love into amd boards as they do Intel. Everything about the Intel boards just look way better
Pros: Great performance beautiful and vibrant rgb easy xmp enable. Very premium look and feel. This is it chief...
Cons: The rgb doesn't give more fps
Overall Review: Mobo x570 asrock taichi razer edition
I'm also using a 360 corsair aio
My psu is a seasonic 850 watt prime gold rated
I originally reviewed these a little early without properly testing so I spent about 4 hours with them. I was originally using corsair dominator platinum 2×16 3600 mhz clocked to 3800 mhz with a 1 to 1 ratio. My timings were 16,19,16,16,38
I switched to these enabled xmp with no issues. It enabled fine. Matter fact I got timings very tight. I know I can go lower just haven't had much more time. Timings are 14,13,14,14,24. I actually had em even lower but I put a Pic of what I settled on. I am testing stability now. If it passes I'll go lower and keep going till it crashes. I also upped to 3633. I did have it at 3733 with xmp timings but I think my imc was getting mad about it. It was random rebooting. No matter what I do no matter what voltage I pump into it. No matter what I change, it will not hit 3800. I know my PC will do it. I've had other sets of ram hit it no problem. One even hit 4000 with flck 2000. My PC either doesn't like this ram or the ram just won't do it. I'm aware of ryzen favoring 3600 I'm aware of 1 to 1 ratios. I also have a B550 msi unify x I'm gonna throw em in tonight and see what happens. That board handles overclocking ram very well. I already knew that going in but figured I'd try anyway. For those that don't know x570 isn't really good for ram overclocking. B550 is alot better. So for now 3633 with crazy timings. And I'm happy with it.
I have updated this post. The above timings 14,13,14,14,24 passed with no problems. I have posted pictures of my scores as they are stable. I think I may play with them a bit more but at this point I don't see increases gaining much more than what they are already at. Noone likes playing a game and in the middle of it having it random reboot. If your going to overclock ram me sure u stress test benchmark and game for a few hours every time after you adjust either clock or timings. One number changing can make all the difference in terms of stablity
This ram is amazing very good binned b-die. I would absolutely recommend to anyone in search of top performance. You get what you pay for and what you pay for here is top shelf performance. I'm just amazed at these sticks. For ryzen users don't get 4 sticks. Stick with 2. Preferably 2×16 3600mhz. If you go for 4 sticks your life will suck if you hit the rated xmp you will be lucky let alone try and overclock 4 sticks. You will have a very bad day.. stay blessed
Pros: Nothing I can think of
Cons: Horrible to try and install. I've installed plenty of this type. Every other king I bought came with a solution to spray before installing. You would have better luck sticking packing tape to the front of your screen. Complete waste of money these are. Just from my experience always better off going with glass panel ones than this type. They don't protect screen if you drop they don't protect from scratches. I absolutely dislike these things
Overall Review: Trash
Pros: Comes with lighting control and light adjuster for veg and flower state. Also comes with timer. Easy to assemble. Received it in two days. Very fast shipping. Seems to work really good though. Lights are bright. Controller is easy to use
Cons: Not much information about product online. Gets very hot. Maybe blow a fan on back of it to move heat around. The instructions was 2 pages and wasn't very informative. The manual is about the size of a pack of cigarettes 2 pages. Again gets very hot. Also makes room its in very hot and dry
Overall Review: Good light but you can spend less and get one with cooling system built in to it. Time will to though.
Pros: This is second phone I purchased in about a month. Bought one for wife had to get one for myself. Unlocked, perfect condition, fast shipping. Received both in about 2 days after order. Perfect condition no scratches or dings. Thank you guys again
Cons: No plug this time battery life doesn't seem so good but will take a few days to really tell after apps optimize and settle in. Bootloader isn't unlockable. Not a big deal for a normal person but for a power user and someone who enjoys rooting devices and flashing roms this phone is hard to do. It is possible but comes with a high risk of bricking. Not sellers fault. It's Samsung fault.
Overall Review: Very happy customer again. Thanks walker and walker
Pros: Decent writing speeds. I am using with a phone had no problems so far
Overall Review: Good product
Pros: Even though used came in new condition shipped very fast. Sim card popped in no issues. Thank you very much to seller.
Cons: Not original packaging not a issue for me but for some might be. And pay attention to description it tells you condition of phone.
Overall Review: I like it alot. I bought for my wife for her bday she loves it. Beautiful phone,fast, camera is awesome. Poops on most newer phones. Thank you to seller again
Pros: Vibrant colors compatible with 011 dynamic case I like them alot. Very clean look easy to install
Overall Review: Great product
Pros: Beautiful case. Full of space for cables. Great modularity. Well made and sturdy
Cons: I haven't found anything I don't like. It's a trend setting case, but in a league of its own. Even the knockoffs can't compete
Overall Review: I like it alot. I can see myself building multiple systems in this case. An if I do upgrade in the future it will be for the Lian LI 011 mini snow edition. This was the first case that set not only a trend but a path for Lian Li to keep this case consistent but something to build off and update in the future like they have. They are only getting better as they update these cases. I love them
Pros: Everything about is. Temps are great easy to install. Paste pre applied. Great white finish. Comes with 2 plates in case you wanna change front pump cover. Was using a Corsair 240 platinum se on a ryzen 5800x. Temps were still decent. But under load was getting hot. Using this temps hit max 61 under load and idle around 40s. Gaming hits lower 50s. I'm using Corsair LL 120s though instead so not sure if they are better or worse. I plan on eventually doing push and pull eventually. So I will probably throw fans that came with in it

Cons: Nothing I love it. Can't say enough good things
Overall Review: I love it make sure u get yourself one
Pros: Quiet, modular sleeved cables from 1st player worked perfect. I'm using a x570 taichi razer edition with a Ryzen 7 5800x corsair dominator platinum ram. 2 issues fixed immediately. One being internal USB connections for my aio pump disconnecting then reconnecting. Also for some reason my ram sticks were not changing color properly. This fixed both issues. Also I'm able to hold higher boost clocks. I'm not sure why. I was using a corsair cx750m semi modular power supply. It's like night and day. I'll be forever using seasonic from here on out
Overall Review: Great product great presentation
Pros: Goes on super easy. Comes with different applicators and a card from thermal grizzly to verify product is authentic. What more can u ask for. I've tested g lid extreme as well as many other thermal paste products this so far as provided lowest temps. I've also tested 5 different ways to apply paste on Ryzen 7 5800x. A very hot chip. A pee sized drop in center, a x pattern, a full coverage like buttering bread as well as a few others. All were in pretty much same temps. I always go for bread and butter method as it allows full coverage. The thermal solution comes with a tip to apply it that way. Temps under load was about 67c using a 360mm aio testing with cinebench r23. We are actually in a heat wave in new York now. temps outside reaching 91 degrees faranheit room temp being about 68c with ac on. So I'd say pretty reasonable. While gaming temps don't go about 56c. 67c being worst case under full load on average of running for almost 10 minutes. Aio being fully heat saturated......
Overall Review: I will continue to use this product from here on out
Pros: Nice cables
Cons: They fried my psu. It was a brand new PSU and listed in their recommended psus. It kept randomly rebooting while gaming. I took every step to trouble shoot. I unplugged them and tested psu. It's faulty no which kinda sucks. So buyers be cautious when picking sleeved cables. The psu worked fine before I put these on it was only about a week old. Even after I removed them my psu is done
Overall Review: Not a good one
Overall Review: Does as listed
Pros: Very nice card good for 1080 gaming. runs below 6700 xt but still fast. will run any games u throw at it at 1080. Rgb is minimal which I like some may not.
Cons: Cooling is a bit overkill for this card it never gets hot. Which is a good thing but it's only a 3060 so not really demanding. Fans look cheap but they are nice and not cheap. I had to purchase a board with this as a part of shuffle now I'm stuck with board I don't want need or have any use for. I feel like for 12 games of ram the card would be a little better .Thanks newegg
Overall Review: Good product for what's it's worth.
Pros: Looks and feels premium. Corsair is always top tier product. Great software control. Easy to set up. Get a commander pro it makes your life so much easier if u have the 70 bucks to do so. Corsair customer support is awesome. Fast response time always willing to help
Cons: Lots of wires. I upgraded from a 80 dollar 240 aio from cooler master and pretty much get same temps with this one being a few degrees cooler. I'm running 5800x cpu. Ave idle temp being 36 underload being in 60s. I'm not overclocked no reason to as this cpu is already fast and some cores hitting 5.02 ghz.
Overall Review: I love it

I love this product and will continue to use as my main paste
Cons: Only enough for one or two uses depending on cpu size
Overall Review: Great product. Was sent and delivered within a few days. Faster than estimated upon order. I highly recommend this paste.
Pros: Fun to build up your character and shoot stuff. Great graphics and visual effects.
Cons: To much story line talking. You have to keep talking to people before going thru story. Gets boring. Missions seem repetitive
Overall Review: Good game I think it's no longer being updated though
Pros: Very sturdy. More than I expected actually for price. Easy to assemble took me 20 minutes. Very nice when done I like it alot.
Cons: The screws holes on wire harness are stripped on plastic. The plastic parts are very cheap. The table is wood so don't overtighten screws.
Overall Review: Good buy for cost
Pros: Lights are vibrant easy to install and move air like they are supposed to.
Cons: Wiring is a mess if you have alot of them. Pricey but well worth it.
Overall Review: I built this system in the era of shortages. I was able to snag everything except a gpu. Still stuck with a rx 590. But hey the lights make it look good at least. Make sure u get a commander pro if you plan on syncing a bunch of fans. I only wish they connected like lian li fans cable management is a mess if ur not careful
Pros: Went right in my lian li 011 dynamic with no modding required and looks great
Overall Review: Great buy very sturdy looks great
