Most Favorable Review

Best CPU I have owned.

AMD Ryzen 7 2nd Gen - Ryzen 7 2700X Pinnacle Ridge (Zen+) 8-Core 3.7 GHz (4.3 GHz Max Boost) Socket AM4 105W YD270XBGAFBOX Desktop Processor

Pros: Fast and cheap! Runs all my games faster than the old CPU. Not Intel. Fan has pretty colors.

Cons: Only thing I had to complain about is the fan. It gets REALLY loud. Would like better control of the fan speed via software. Might eventually get a different fan or liquid cooler but I cant figure out what to get yet.

Most Critical Review

Monitor worked great for 4 months then died randomly

AOC U2879VF 28" 4K 3840 x 2160 UHD Gaming Monitor, 1ms Response Time, 10-bit Panel w/ Over 1 Billion Colors, AMD FreeSync, 20M:1 SmartContrast, DisplayPort/HDMI/DVI/VGA Inputs

Pros: It did have good color and brightness.

Cons: Monitor died one morning when bring the computer out of sleep mode. There is no AOC splash screen and no OSD. No way to reset the thing either. No tips or tricks I have seen will bring it back on. All I get at this point is a monitor that will stay in low power mode forever.

Overall Review: Multiple cables tried, HDMI, DP, two video cards. My other LG screen works fine with all cables and both my GPU. Good thing I saved the box for RMA!
