Bang for buck
Pros: +Runs fairly quiet +Aesthetically pleasing +Plays almost all games maxed out at 1080p
Cons: -VERY long card -Power inputs offset from the far right edge
Overall Review: I wanted more power than the 5500 XT could deliver, and this definitely does it. It's sleek and has an unobtrusive design that perfectly meshes into my case (albeit after some awkward fitting). It's a 5700 XT under MSRP, what more could you want?
It performs like it should... But...
Pros: Compact Looks good Performs well
Cons: Extremely late Damaged fins due to no liner in the box
Overall Review: While I'm happy that the seller updated me when I asked, I'm disappointed at the quality control. Having a dented heatsink and bending the fins back is not fun!
Amazing case and thermal performance
Pros: - Easy to carry - Fits a 280mm radiator - Fits a 330mm graphics card - Easy to build in
Cons: - PCIe Gen 3.0 riser cable - ATX PSUs have naturally long cables, so it can be a hassle work with if using a full 280mm radiator - Fully built with largest components make this as heavy as an IRL ammo can
Overall Review: I LOVE the aesthetic of this case, the fact in only needs two fans for exhaust, and that I can easily move it from place to place. I'm very mobile and being able to one-hand this case on the move is a major go. I stress tested with a 3950x and 6900 XT and it didn't go above 70 degrees C under load for either component. (Scored an 18,000 on TimeSpy too, naisu) The only thing that kept me from giving it a full 5-star is the PCIe riser cable. If it were a 4.0, done deal. Great case Cougar, I'm going to hope for more compact case solutions in the future!
For its price point, it's a great value
Pros: -Silent under load -Low power draw -Plays all of my games at acceptable frames
Cons: -Official software (such as AORUS Engine) support is terrible, conflicts with AMD tuning software -4 GB may turn out to be a hindrance in the future
Overall Review: My Vega 64 sprung a leak and I didn't want to deal with maintenance anymore. I decided to get this as it was cheaper and came with RE3 and Ghost Recon. Overall, I'm happy with its performance for the price point. I can still stream, I don't have a jet engine blasting my ears, and since it sips power at a very low rate, I can expect savings in the coming years. Did I mention that it's aesthetically pleasing?
I'm sure they can work fine, but not for me
Going to get right to the point. I made an order, it was marked delivered, I didn't see it. Probably stolen. Contacted seller, got no response, gave up. I'm pretty much accepting my loss, but I don't approve of zero feedback from the seller.
