Worth it if you're willing to put in the work

CORSAIR Carbide Series SPEC-OMEGA RGB Tempered Glass Mid-Tower ATX Gaming Case
CORSAIR Carbide Series SPEC-OMEGA RGB Tempered Glass Mid-Tower ATX Gaming Case

Pros: - Looks absolutely amazing - Plenty of space for the build itself - Adjustable PSU shroud, if you want to install a 240/280/360mm rad in the front - Removable HDD and SSD caddies (+ the SSD caddy's spring-loaded system is just plain awesome) - Included RBG controller for up to 6 fans, and 2 HD120s are a plus over base SPEC-OMEGA cases - Case feels very sturdy/solid on its feet.

Cons: - (minor) Hex key glass panel. Not a deal-breaker, but tool-less would be a big plus - (minor) Manual should include instructions to remove both the PSU shroud and the front panel. - If you put regular 140x140x25mm fans on the top, clearance for cables becomes almost non-existent. I imagine the same applies to rads. - Back of the case gives very limited cable management room. You WILL have to cable manage to even close the back panel. Cable ties are included for that reason, and removing the SSD caddy helps, but the case is pretty unforgiving in that regard.

Overall Review: - Surprisingly, airflow seems alright, considering the limited openings at the top and (especially) at the front. The large depth seems to help in that matter. - If you're wondering: - To remove the PSU shroud: there are many screws (6-8) lining up the back of the motherboard tray that hold it in place, and one on the bottom of the case. It should slide out, afterwwards, though it feels kinda fidgety to me. - To remove the front panel: there are 7 tabs you need to push: 3 on each side of the front panel, and another one on the top. Removing the top panel first helps. Don't forget you have a cable connecting there! All in all, a solid and gorgeous case that, if maybe 2-3cm taller and deeper, would be a natural recommendation.

Most Critical Review

Works as a board, BIOS revisions are wonky, support absent

ASRock X570 STEEL LEGEND AM4 AMD X570 SATA 6Gb/s ATX AMD Motherboard
ASRock X570 STEEL LEGEND AM4 AMD X570 SATA 6Gb/s ATX AMD Motherboard

Pros: - Looks pretty nice. - Supports Ryzen 3000 nicely. - Good internal connectivity.

Cons: - BIOS revisions. We go from a decent BIOS on P1.70, to one that sends huge static through audio (EVEN a USB DAC/AMP combo, P1.90), to one that refuses to apply IFClock and PBO settings (Latest at time of review, P2.10). - Two of the rear USB ports are dead. Contacted support about it, I haven't gotten an answer, one month later. - PCH fan is right under the graphics card if you're using the top-most slot. This could easily become a problem in the long run.

Overall Review: I'd love to give this board a better review, as its specs are pretty decent. However, ASRock failed to come through here.

Over nine months in, no complaints!

LG OLED65C7P 65-inch OLED 4K HDR LED Smart TV - 3840 x 2160 - webOS 3.5 - Magic Remote - Wi-Fi - HDMI
LG OLED65C7P 65-inch OLED 4K HDR LED Smart TV - 3840 x 2160 - webOS 3.5 - Magic Remote - Wi-Fi - HDMI

Pros: - The picture quality is super crisp - The Smart TV UI is pretty great - As a refurb, came with everything needed in the box. Was easy to wall mount. - TV was pretty much spotless.

Cons: - The 90 day warranty, obviously. No problem so far, however.

Overall Review: - I would recommend both the product and the seller for an amazing refurb TV!

Issues at first, Rosewill customer support absent

Rosewill RNX-AC1300PCE WiFi Adapter / Wireless Adapter / PCI-E Network Card , 802.11AC Dual Band AC1300 PCI Express Network Adapter, 2.4 GHz 400 Mbps + 5 GHz 867 Mbps, Include Low-profile Bracket
Rosewill RNX-AC1300PCE WiFi Adapter / Wireless Adapter / PCI-E Network Card , 802.11AC Dual Band AC1300 PCI Express Network Adapter, 2.4 GHz 400 Mbps + 5 GHz 867 Mbps, Include Low-profile Bracket

Pros: - It's not a green PCB. Being red on black might fit more color schemes - 2nd unit seems to work quite nicely for its (very low) price

Cons: - 1st unit was found defective within a week; it would reset itself if you attempt to connect to a network, as seen through Device Manager - No answer to a support email sent concerning this issue. It has been 3 weeks, without even an acknowledgement. Thankfully, Newegg accepted to replace the unit.

Overall Review: Works great if you don't get unlucky, but when you do, the support from Rosewill seems iffy at best.

G.Skill means quality

G.SKILL Trident Z RGB (For AMD) 16GB (2 x 8GB) 288-Pin PC RAM DDR4 3600 (PC4 28800) Desktop Memory Model F4-3600C18D-16GTZRX
G.SKILL Trident Z RGB (For AMD) 16GB (2 x 8GB) 288-Pin PC RAM DDR4 3600 (PC4 28800) Desktop Memory Model F4-3600C18D-16GTZRX

Pros: - Runs at its rated 3600MHz with no issues. You can even play around with timings at 3600MHz. - Excellent RGB look - If that excites you, seems to hold up pretty nicely in benchmarks

Cons: - Chips are Hynix M-die, and not Samsung B-die. Minor to most, but a heads up.

Overall Review: No issues on an X470-PRO board. All X470 ASUS boards are on the kit's QVL, so if you plan on getting one of those, do get this RAM kit.

Absolutely worth its price!

Noctua NF-S12A PWM, Premium Quiet Fan, 4-Pin (120mm, Brown)
Noctua NF-S12A PWM, Premium Quiet Fan, 4-Pin (120mm, Brown)

Pros: -Good 120mm fan, pushes a lot of air around -Accessories aplenty: rubber anti-vibration grommets, low-noise adapter, a y-splitter (with each fan!), an extension cord. -Silent (at least compared to other components)

Cons: N/A.

Overall Review: If you don't mind the classic Noctua colors, this is a must.
