Cooler Master V8 GTS High Performance CPU Cooler, Horizontal Vapor Chamber, 8 Heatpipes, Aluminum Fins, Dual 120mm Fans, Red LED, AMD /Intel LGA1200/1151/2066

Cons: none

Overall Review: wish i had bought more than 1

Most Critical Review

Poof goes the lights on the Fan

Vetroo V5 White CPU Air Cooler w/ 5 Heat Pipes 120mm PWM Processor 150W TDP Cooler for Intel LGA 1700/1200/115X AMD AM5/AM4 w/Addressable RGB Lighting Sync
Vetroo V5 White CPU Air Cooler w/ 5 Heat Pipes 120mm PWM Processor 150W TDP Cooler for Intel LGA 1700/1200/115X AMD AM5/AM4 w/Addressable RGB Lighting Sync

Pros: it was pretty good cooling and the lights were great while the lasted

Cons: The fan started popping and crackling and the smell of magic black smoke filled the air, I could see the led's self destructing quickly turned off the system and put the stock cooler back on . If i can find another white fan with RGB Light effect I will put it back on the system board

Overall Review: I must have gotten a lemon for the fan otherwise this was good cooler easy to install

looks pretty

GIGABYTE GA-990FX-Gaming AM3+ AMD 990FX SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.1 USB 3.0 ATX AMD Motherboard

Pros: sharp looking board has metal protectors on PCIE Slots

Cons: says it supports AMD FX-9590, it will boot up and run but when under load it overheats and freezes in game have to hard boot to get back in , looking at replacing with an older known to work with AMD FX-9590 board ASUS has 3 - 990FX based boards that i know work

Overall Review: i am using a ARCTIC COOLING Liquid Freezer 240 ACFRE00013A 240mm Liquid CPU Cooler rated at 300watt TDW and before board freezes i can see CPU temp running at 33 degrees c with board at 45 before utility stops reporting and system freezes , my Video Card is a ASUS R9Nano White and I am using a Sandisk X400 512GB M.2 SSD and 2 x 8GB Corsair Vengeance Ram 2400MHZ, Windows 10 Pro 64 bit

Pros: sets up real quick, boots fast after the initial setup took very little time to charge I'm already connected to my TV and the Internet plays browser games well, will put word, power point, and outlook on it later, used wireless for everything

Cons: nothing so far

Overall Review: was not charged when i took it out of the box not bad or good

Great Drive

SAMSUNG 850 EVO 2.5" 250GB SATA III 3D NAND Internal Solid State Drive (SSD) MZ-75E250B/AM
SAMSUNG 850 EVO 2.5" 250GB SATA III 3D NAND Internal Solid State Drive (SSD) MZ-75E250B/AM

Pros: I started buying Samsung SSD about 2 years ago. i have been very happy with price performance ratio it just keeps getting better and better. This drive replaces a 64GB Crucial Drive nothing wrong with the old drive just ran out of space. I used the Apricorn USB3 Notebook drive upgrade kit with EZ Gig Cloning Software , run this cloning software from the CD or windows 10 will barf. VERY important do not INSTALL the cloning software to a Windows 10 system AGAIN RUN IT DIRECTLY FROM THE CD and it works Jim dandy tickty-boo !!!

Cons: none for me

Overall Review: just a tech note for general information. Currently there are very few cloning or migration tools that are compatible with Windows 10. Do a little research and you will find that technical workarounds exist. I did not use the included Samsung tool, as I had already found a way to make EZ Gig cloning work with Windows 10.

Pros: the mounting kit is good its easy to setup and i like how it works for the AMD AM3+ processor, i have it cooling and AMD FX8350 CPU its at 17 C at idle and 25 C under-load

Cons: none for me its just what i was looking for
