PowerColor RED DRAGON Radeon RX Vega 56 8GB HBM2 PCI Express 3.0 CrossFireX Support ATX Video Card AXRX VEGA 56 8GBHBM2-2D2HD/OC

Pros: Plugin play just what I was looking for. Replaced my 7950 with this on I'm still using an older system Amd 5800k and wanted to find a decent graphic card before my complete system up grade. All i can say is WOW this card has put new life in my system and at a very decent price. The card is well made very solid feeling I have no coil noise and the fans rarely speed up very quiet card. it came with Samsung memory I have been testing it at stock settings and I'm running all my games cranked up and WOW. No need to overclock on older systems as your system will only handle so much before you bottleneck.Nice Job Now is the test of time to see how well the card holds up. out of the box Perfect... Need a decent card this is the one.

Cons: None at this time

Overall Review: Some people don't realize PowerColor has been around for a many years. When I was building systems with the smaller cpu's 233mhz ...ect we used Powercolor in a lot of systems for office or gaming the were small as compared to today"s standard but always worked. I was excited to see them back in the market. Very Well Done Card And Welcome Back Old Friend Update: After a month of using this card performance is still great out of the box. i'm updating my review for the cooling performance of this card I can't believe how cool and quiet this card runs. I have been playing some of the newer games cranked up and the fans hardly speed up. What a difference from my old card. I hope in the future other cards look at this cooling solution with the smaller pcb and open heat sink fins seems to work very well Just my thoughts ... cool and quiet is nice

Most Critical Review

Third Review I must be fair

Seagate Central STCG3000100 3TB Cloud Storage System

Pros: Still working

Cons: Still slower than I hoped

Overall Review: Well after a lot of different setups I did manage to improve the remote access speed Mac's work pretty well with this unit and Win 7 seems to struggle with reading the packets. Michael is dead on with that review congrats for that using ftp for file transfers instead of the remote access provided is like night and day. I can live with the speed of downloads using ftp until a better firmware arrives (I hope) Better setup options and control of the unit will be a big plus. That being said I added two eggs because I can't put all the blame on the unit now that software, browsers, and os have entered the picture

Power Button

Pros: Perfect plug and play Does what it should do very nice installation bracket for the back of your case adds a nice touch. No problems with any buttons and well made. I picked up two and both work fast shipping which is always nice these days.

Cons: None really maybe a red lit one I now have a red lit one I switched the blue led for a red one took about 10 mins very easy I did it only to match my setup

Overall Review: Would recommend

Pros: Size is perfect for my smaller case Lots of power Gold Rating 10 Year Warranty

Cons: None

Overall Review: all around a nice power supply and being fully modular it made cable management easy which is harder in a smaller case. With todays price market for what you get this is a good deal.

X570 Upgrade Perfect!

ASRock X570 PG VELOCITA AM4 AMD X570 SATA 6Gb/s ATX AMD Motherboard
ASRock X570 PG VELOCITA AM4 AMD X570 SATA 6Gb/s ATX AMD Motherboard

Pros: Solid board! Great looking for a Motherboard. Many perks with this board.. usb and header are plenty. Two 4.0 m.2 slots big plus My Amd 5800x fired right up Runs my 3600 mhz memory at rated speed 4.0 Pcie Wifi if needed

Cons: None I could find.

Overall Review: I have built many computers over the years some for looks some for speed using many different brands based on the market. The one thing that has always been constant for my personal computer is I have always use ASRock boards since they started selling them Amd and Intel over time they have proven to be the most stable boards on the market and I recommend them to builders who ask. This one is no exception very nice upgrades for the x570 chipset. Well done in my option if you have been holding off for an x570 upgrade look no further this one fits the bill and with today's pricing for what you get with options it's a good deal. They nailed it on this one.

Pros: Colors and cooling works well so far

Cons: When the fans are placed horizonal some of the have a small bearing noise not all of them do. Place them vertical and the noise goes away.

Overall Review: Work
