Most Favorable Review

Nice temps, design flaws

Pros: The cooler fits perfectly in my case (CM Masterbox 5T). Lowered the temps of my Ryzen 5 1600 to 70-80 @ 3.45Ghz to 40-70 @ 3.85Ghz (also changed my Motherboard so that could be helping too). Nice color, good looking.

Cons: Aparently there is a design flaw either with the fins or with the fans because if I have the two fans the cooler vibrates like hell I guess something is creating turbulence, if I disconect the "exaust" fan the cooler vibrates a lot less, but still produces a slight vibration. Im concerned as I don't want it to damage the socket or other components due to vibration, so i'm using it with only one fan, and I will switch the fans to see if thats the issue. If you buy this take a closer look at the vibration as you don't want to damage other components (if possible).

Overall Review: Is a good cooler, works as intended, i'm just a little bit concerned about the vibration part, but I hope that a new set of fans will solve the issue.

Great motherboard

Pros: Good lookin (although not as good looking as my old Mobo, the GB Gaming K5) Nice BIOS, no needed to update to achieve 3200mhz in memory OC. Running with my Ryzen 5 1600 @ 3.85Ghz and a pair of Corsair LED @3200 Mhz, with my old GB Gaming K5 that was not possible.

Cons: Aesthetic complaint, I know this is a Mid-Tier MOBO but having a cover plate for the IO part of the mobo would be nice like the one in the Carbon PRO or similar. An unconvencional front I/O panel pins, labeled as JFP1 and JFP2, makes most of the easy connection blocks not 100% suitable, my connection block pops out of the jumper area and almost to the end of the mobo, fortunately there was no other components there or that would render my accesory useless. Doesn't have Dual BIOS even when other MOBOs at the same price range have.

Overall Review: Recomended purchase even with the "flaws" is not a deal breaker.
