Great value

DIYPC D480-W White Dual USB 3.0 ATX Mid Tower Gaming Computer Case with Build-in 5 x Fans (2 x 120mm Blue LED Fan x Front, 1 x 120mm Blue LED Fan x Rear, 2 x 120mm Fan x Top), Fan Controller
DIYPC D480-W White Dual USB 3.0 ATX Mid Tower Gaming Computer Case with Build-in 5 x Fans (2 x 120mm Blue LED Fan x Front, 1 x 120mm Blue LED Fan x Rear, 2 x 120mm Fan x Top), Fan Controller

Pros: 5 fans Nice LED lights Wire management Dedicated SSD mounts Large horizontal space for long cards Great airflow design

Cons: The PSU cover kind of takes too much space, if you're running an ATX board it will push right next to the PSU case at the bottom, potentially making your last PCI slot useless for larger cards The fans don't move a whole lot of air, but you get 5

Overall Review: Great value for its price, would definitely recommend to others

Great card

MSI Gaming GeForce RTX 3070 8GB GDDR6 PCI Express 4.0 Video Card 3070 GAMING Z TRIO 8G LHR

Pros: - Runs very cool - Nice RGB capability - Works as intended

Cons: - Large, make sure you read the dimensions of this card - The brace sags with the card

Overall Review: Cheap backplate or not, this card runs cool. The bracket that came with the card is kinda useless, as it sags with the card. Your experience may vary. Picked it up for $560, can't complain. Can run most titles at 1440p 144fps high/ultra. If your looking to play Cyberpunk at the mentioned specs with raytracing, get the 3080 instead.

Good board

Pros: - Very solidly built - Easy to install - BIOS flash not needed for 5000 series - Easy XMP activation

Cons: - Cheap LEDS; individual LEDs under the chipset heatsink and not a bar - No WIFI - Driver update required to smooth out kinks

Overall Review: Very impressed with the build quality of the board. LEDs are a bit disappointing, but not a huge deal when everything else works well. Audio issues (microphone static) were fixed after updating audio drivers from MSI website. I would like to see WIFI built in, but I guess MSI wants us to pay more for that feature. TLDR: Solid board, can't complain
