Most Favorable Review

Very good GPU, pleasantly surprised.

GIGABYTE Radeon RX 6600 XT GAMING OC 8G Graphics Card, WINDFORCE 3X Cooling System, 8GB 128-bit GDDR6, GV-R66XTGAMING OC-8GD Video Card

Pros: Performs very well, better than what I expected. Thought it would be good for just 1080 P gaming , but I was able to play all the way up to 4K ,60 FPS on Horizon 4 and 5 high settings. Installed it into a PCI e 3.0 slot( they say 4.0 is optimal) on a Z490 Mobo and it started right up with the Windows driver then automatically updated to the AMD driver. It's quiet and stays at a reasonable temp.

Cons: The only real con is not being able to get the GPU at MSRP, but I paid approx. 25 % over MSRP and these days that's pretty good. Most GPUs are at least 100 % or more above MSRP.

Overall Review: I would recommend it, I would buy it again if I had to do it over again. I have it paired with an i9-10900K and m.2 drives , Windows 11, works great.

Great CPU, installs easily and a great value.

Pros: It's performance is outstanding. It can reach 5.2 GHZ without much effort. A person doesn't have to do a lot of tuning to get to peak performance. Current prices make it even more appealing. It will run at 5.2 ghz gaming with a decent air cooler and stay between 30 to 62 degrees Celsius. I have even ran it at 5.3GHZ on all cores stable.

Cons: Something to be aware of, it will create a lot of system heat. Meaning a small room that is already hot isn't the best place for a PC with this CPU. That would go for pretty much most CPU's in this range.

Overall Review: I would certainly recommend this to anybody looking for a powerful and versatile CPU. The price and performance are excellent. It may be a lot more than most people need or would use ,but contrary to popular belief it doesn't run any hotter than lower end CPU's proportionate to task. Casual use it will run at lower frequency and maintain a low temp. Gaming will raise the temp as with any CPU, but well within reason. Rendering etc will raise it up some more ,but as long as it is sufficiently cooled there won't be a problem. It has no problem reaching it's top speed on all cores with little effort on the user or CPU. Other than a professional gamer I personally don't see the need to do a lot of overclocking adjustments for another 100 MHZ+/- . It will work in several different class of Motherboards , though the Z class would be optimal. I have it in a B 460 , but am going to get a Z class.

Great Graphics and quiet.

Pros: Light and sturdy, doesn't sag in the slot. Performs as expected and even better. Can be easily overclocked and stay stable. Installation is easy, from putting it into the motherboard to driver set up. Not too long or wide. A lot of performance for the price. Works flawlessly with other hardware , 10th gen i5,64gb DDR4 ram and 1 TB m.2 ,B460 MOBO.

Cons: Idle temp seems high, but it's because of the fan curve which can be changed. There's really not much to complain about.

Overall Review: I would recommend it to others. Plays new games well. Plays games in 4k at high frame rate. Yes I would buy again.
