Most Favorable Review

Bang for buck

XFX Radeon RX 5700 XT 8GB GDDR6 PCI Express 4.0 ATX Video Card RX-57XT83LD8
XFX Radeon RX 5700 XT 8GB GDDR6 PCI Express 4.0 ATX Video Card RX-57XT83LD8

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?

Most Critical Review

It performs like it should... But...

ID-COOLING IS-40X Low Profile CPU Cooler for Intel/AMD 45mm Height AM4 CPU Cooler 4 Heatpipes CPU Air Cooler 15mm Thickness PWM Fan
ID-COOLING IS-40X Low Profile CPU Cooler for Intel/AMD 45mm Height AM4 CPU Cooler 4 Heatpipes CPU Air Cooler 15mm Thickness PWM Fan

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

COUGAR DUST 2 Dessert Sand Mini-ITX Computer Case
COUGAR DUST 2 Dessert Sand Mini-ITX Computer Case

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

GIGABYTE Radeon RX 5500 XT 4GB GDDR6 PCI Express 4.0 x16 ATX Video Card GV-R55XTGAMING OC-4GD
GIGABYTE Radeon RX 5500 XT 4GB GDDR6 PCI Express 4.0 x16 ATX Video Card GV-R55XTGAMING OC-4GD

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?

Good starter case

DIYPC DIY-F2-O Black/Orange USB 3.0 Micro-ATX Mini Tower Gaming Computer Case with 2 x Orange LED Fans (Pre-installed)

Pros: +Lots of area to build in +Looks good

Cons: -Terrible cable management

Overall Review: While the side panel space is appreciated (and absolutely required for cable management on a non-modular supply), cable management is super frustrating and hard to work with.

Easy AMD installation

RAIJINTEK JUNO X - RGB CPU cooler

Pros: +RGB controllable +Fairlyl silent

Cons: -Mini-ITX boards will require LPX RAM

Overall Review: Don't overclock with this. Temps get a bit hotter faster than stock, but plateau at a safe temp.

Pay the extra for express shipping

Professional and friendly, shipping to America is already going to be a pain though, of no fault of their own. Highly recommend

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.
