Pros: Temps have not exceeded 71C on both dual monitors and VR running games at 1080 or 1440, frame rates 15-20% higher than the EVGA 3070 FTW3 that was previously installed, leaving on non-OC bios switch as performance is that good!
Cons: Size on a card of this class is always an issue, Im installing a proper anti-sag bracket shortly

Ill be swapping out the R5-3600x for a higher-performance CPU soon. Mobo has PCIE gen 4 slot so we are getting full speed from the GPU
Overall Review: Flawless PSU, stable and silent, no coil whine. Very happy with it!
Overall Review: Instantly recognized by BIOS for AMD, set XMP with no issues. Great RAM and blingarific!
Pros: Easy to match speed on Ryzen builds, fast and consistent performance
Cons: None...its Corsair and on the QVLs!
Overall Review: This works on every board Ive tried, 450 to 570 series all Ryzen builds. I was able to match the 3600 speed every time in BIOS without any glitches. It fits under large air coolers and complements dark builds with its gloss black cover. Great RAM and frequently on a low price since no RGB.
Pros: Runs cool, VR compatible and performs great
Cons: Not a 3070 or 3080 but costs less so all good
Overall Review: I got this card needing a step up from a 2060 for a micro build, so a 2-fan compact card was right. 12 gig on this wont get utilized on gaming but with resizable bar the excess memory can be shared with the CPU...check out EVGA resizable bar for info. Great performance when you dont need a higher card so Im happy with it!
Pros: Easy to navigate the BIOS and stable performance
Cons: If you want Princess Rainbow Puke this isnt the board you are looking for.
Overall Review: I got this board for a dark build, with a Ryzen 5 3600, Fractal Celsius S36, EVGA RTX 3070 and an EVGA Supernova 750 G5 in a Lian Li Lancool II. Ive had no heat management issues and run VR on the rig with no problem!
Pros: Great for gaming and all purpose rig
Cons: Do you need more than 6 cores/12 threads?
Overall Review: I bought two of these to build extra systems where the original ones had Ryzen 7 3700 X. Running the system with an X570 motherboard and an RTX 3070 card, and using a VR system, my son was not able to see any performance difference. It makes for a great build!
Pros: Great RGB effects
Cons: Reported bearing leaks by some users
Overall Review: I got these to complete a snow build with Cooler Master MF120 Halo fans. They complement the build well and sync with the RGB effects, which look amazing with the lines. Some people have reported fluid leaks from the bearings which shorten the lifespan but mine are good so far
Pros: RGB, easy to connect
Cons: Reports of bearing leakage over time
Pros: Decent mid-range X570 board and looks great for a snow build
Cons: The M.2 heat sink has caused some frustration
Overall Review: I was torn between the Asus B550 A and this board for a snow build. After reading other reviews I knew the issues with this board were not a problem for me. The M.2 heat sink is part of the chipset fan cover and has an attached wire for the RGB so just be careful and plan ahead, have a friend nearby in case you need extra hands. The board works great and recognized my Trident Neo 3600 RAM and was easily adjusted in BIOS. Built for a gaming and remote school learning rig, it has been stable and works flawlessly.
Pros: Fantastic RGB on front, back and sides
Cons: None, just follow directions
Overall Review: I bought both the black and white sets. On the black set I hooked the RGB directly to the motherboard and it was dim; but when I used the attached hardware and powered the RGB via a SATA power connection the lighting was bright and impressive! Great addition for a build!
Pros: Fast and readily identified by the system
Overall Review: Are use this for two builds where I wanted to speed to be 3600 and both of the boards immediately recognized it. I was able to set the speeds in bios without any trouble at all. I have never had a problem with any of these ram sticks. It is a great deal and definitely worth getting especially for an AMD build
Pros: Still a WD Black
Cons: So ugly you gotta hide it in the back
Overall Review: I bought this drive with the intent to stick it in the front of the case to show off the WD black logo that it’s advertised with. However the one that I received appears to be standard retail packed with the basic decal on the front that does not cover it with a large WD black logo which I had hoped for. It’s still a great drive and it will still be useful but I just won’t be able to stick it in an exposed part of the case where it could’ve been shown off.
Pros: Great case
Easy to mod
6 LED connectors on the front panel underside
Cons: QC for the offsets? Why would they have different widths?
Overall Review: I bought the case for a snow build and as I was dropping in the motherboard everything fit fine. But when I went to go put in the screws five screws theaded in, three of them just fell into the screw hole without any grip so I had to sit there with a magnet and fish them back out. Why would a case be produced that does not have consistent thread width on its offsets? I specifically used the bag of screws and materials that came with the case and I have enclosed a photo to show one of the screws that went into the offset and had no grab￼. At least I have other parts to finish the build
Pros: EVGA has great designs and engineering (usually)
Cons: 1. Radiator is equipped as exhaust so you have to rearrange fans if you want to mount it at the front of the case.
2. There is no safety plate on the rad; and the factory screws were into the fins (see the photo).
3. Hoses are too short for a front case “hose at the bottom” arrangement.
Overall Review: I really had high hopes for this radiator system for my EVGA DG-77 snow build. However the design of the radiator is not very compatible with this case, and for that matter not very many other cases I can think of which really perplexes me. Why this was configured initially as an exhaust radiator indicates the intent was pretty much to be top mounted in a case. However on the DG-77, with the extra wires coming off of the front panel, there’s only room for 280 or 240, not a 360. I can still make it work for a front panel mount with different fans and the hoses mounted at the top of the tank but that’s not optimal and it’s extra expense. Switching around the fans to the front of the rad with the scalloped edges facing the inlet does not make a good seal, and might draw air from the inside of the case￼. JaysTwoCents review showed the scalloped edges creating blow-by, so with a push-pull it might work out. My greatest concern is that there is no safety plate, and the factory set screws were into the rad fins. This is unacceptable from any major company making a product of this grade. Photos are attached for reference.
Pros: Consistent and balanced power supply
Stays on the cool side even under load
Motherboard peripherals that light up when power down automatically recognize power supply wind switched back on￼
No issues so far with system lock or hang when powering back on which I have dealt with on other power supplies￼
Cons: The green vent cover tickles my inner leprechaun (maybe not a negative) but it makes me want to mount it vent up in an open case
Overall Review: I really enjoyed using the G5 power supplies due to the reputation, stability, and ability to deliver consistent power while staying cool. The green vent cover makes me want to show it off instead of keeping it hidden underneath the shroud, and the fully modular system allows me to utilize only the cables that I need for each build.￼ Overall the cost is not that much more or directly in line with its competition and the value that comes with its reputation makes it worth it in my opinion
Pros: Recognized by the mobo immediately, runs console-quality graphics so save the expense of having to purchase a GPU! The onboard graphics are surprisingly good and due to its low wattage draw I’m using a Noctua NH-D9L and single fan. Ran CPU-Z stress test and stayed at 77C.
Cons: Only 4 cores 8 threads but games don’t require that much so no worries

Pros: Multiple red LEDs for full circle effect rather than 4 points.
Cons: Molex adapter coming off the fan pin?
Overall Review: I bought this fan for a stealth-red pc build, and although it is overwhelmed by the other red LEDs I still like the effect. The blades are smooth, clear and quiet. You can clip off the Molex connector if not needed so that you can connect directly to the PCB without having a molex dangling there. Might get some more for the front or back to keep the theme.
Pros: Fast as my old 2070 and got it fast!
Cons: 3 ports out only
Overall Review: We installed in a VR/Gaming rig. No lag, works great and just enough video ports for Dual Screen + VR headset. Very happy and arrived on time, will do business with Newegg and Antonline again!!!
Pros: Built Princess Rainbowpuke in this one, will play with custom water cooled later, TONS of room and the management compartments on the back are a dream!
Overall Review: Definitely recommend, easy to make a build look pro-level!
Pros: Lots of room for putting in controllers and no air moving issues, great case!
Overall Review: Likely going to try the 210 for an itx build, the 510 is incredible and handles up to EATX boards
Pros: 32 inch and 1ms with Hugh frame rate and synch is all you need to know
Overall Review: 32 inch and 1ms with Hugh frame rate and synch is all you need to know, even hooked to a laptop with AMD graphic card still getting 120 hz
