Not a joke!

GIGABYTE GA-MA770T-UD3P AM3 AMD 770 ATX AMD Motherboard
GIGABYTE GA-MA770T-UD3P AM3 AMD 770 ATX AMD Motherboard

Pros: Overclocking AM3 on a budget. Good power circuitry, 140W processor capable, DDR3 1600 out of the box. Excellent price.

Cons: No mosfet cooler next to the CPU socket. The Enzotech M-81 fits perfectly. No other cons whatsoever

Overall Review: This is a great board. Takes my X3 720 to 4ghz and not a single setback from the motherboard. In response to the post above.. get a clue. You don't need the 790FX board unless you want to run more than one video card. This board offers everything that the 790 does and runs cooler. Overclocks great. Recommended for those on a budget. The 710 SB does RAID and does it well.

Junk...

X2GEN MW22U 22" WSXGA+ 1680 x 1050 D-Sub, DVI Built-in Speakers LCD Monitor

Pros: Picture quality is great... when it works.

Cons: The power supplies for these are horrible. On my 2nd monitor and has problems like the first with intermitently turning off for a second then turning back on Fool me once, shame on you, fool me twice, not gonna happen.

Overall Review: x2gens Customer service is great, unfortunately I cannot say that about thier product.

Decent card for the price.

ASRock Phantom Gaming D Radeon RX 570 4GB GDDR5 PCI Express 3.0 x16 Video Card RX570 4G

Pros: It displays.

Cons: AMD rewards program is a joke. Nothing claiming you need to have the hardware installed in your system to fulfill the rewards. Newegg took their time shipping the card out. Ordered the 8th. Not seeing it until the 18th.

Overall Review: Would of never purchased from Newegg with this ridiculous shipping time. I would of rather paid an extra ten bucks and picked it up locally.

Nice looking board, not ready yet.

GIGABYTE Z370 AORUS Gaming 7 (rev. 1.0) LGA 1151 (300 Series) Intel Z370 HDMI SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.1 ATX Intel Motherboard
GIGABYTE Z370 AORUS Gaming 7 (rev. 1.0) LGA 1151 (300 Series) Intel Z370 HDMI SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.1 ATX Intel Motherboard

Pros: Looks great, lots of BIOS options, it boots up, lots of RGB's!!!!!!

Cons: Bios likes to give out post codes randomly that mean nothing. The AppCenter that you need for Gigabyte's software is utter garbage. It's going to be the one reason I stay away from Gigabyte motherboards in the future. The BIOS doesn't know how to auto adjust idle voltage like every other motherboard on the market.

DOA

COOLER MASTER Silent Pro M600 RS-600-AMBA-D3 600W ATX12V V2.3 SLI Certified CrossFire Ready 80 PLUS Bronze Certified Modular Active PFC Power Supply
COOLER MASTER Silent Pro M600 RS-600-AMBA-D3 600W ATX12V V2.3 SLI Certified CrossFire Ready 80 PLUS Bronze Certified Modular Active PFC Power Supply

Pros: Newegg's excellent customer servics and prompt RMA.q

Cons: The unit was dead. Lights in the case would flicker for a second and that was it. This was a direct replacement for another working PSU.

Overall Review: While I'm dissapointed I got a dud, Newegg is on the ball with getting me a new one shipped back. That is where the two eggs come from in the rating.

Excellent RAM

G.SKILL Trident 4GB (2 x 2GB) DDR3 2000 (PC3 16000) Desktop Memory Model F3-16000CL9D-4GBTD

Pros: With my P55, I set the XMP profile for it, adjusted my QPI voltage to 1.39 and 2000Mhz rock solid stable at advertised voltage. Also tested with an AMD 965 BE and an Asus M4A79T Deluxe. Acheived 1800mhz cas 7 1.65v Very nice!!!

Cons: None whatsoever.

Overall Review: I'm buying another set. Get this stuff while it's good. :)
