Easy to set up for windows 10 but the wifi is not too stable

ASUS ROG STRIX Z370-G Gaming (WI-FI AC) LGA 1151 (300 Series) Intel Z370 HDMI SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.1 Micro ATX Intel Motherboard
ASUS ROG STRIX Z370-G Gaming (WI-FI AC) LGA 1151 (300 Series) Intel Z370 HDMI SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.1 Micro ATX Intel Motherboard

Pros: Easy to set up for Windows 10

Cons: Hell to setup for Windows 7, but that's understandable EZ setup for gaming causes random bluescreens Too much useless fluff in the package like stickers and a door tag. (update) Wifi sporadically goes haywire requiring a reboot. This is with Windows 10 and their own driver connecting to an Asus router. I can confirm that the router is still working fine with another wireless device running the same speed test. On the PC=0.28 Mbps on the Android device 56Mbps.

Overall Review: If you're insane enough to try to install Windows 7 on this, you're going to have to go through a lot of driver issues. Once you install windows 7 nothing really works not even the mouse and keyboard unless you remember to put it on the USB 2.0 slots You need a copy of Ubuntu live CD in order to put in some files into your drive specifically the Wireless LAN drivers. I'm going to write more after I go on and use it but seems to be working fine and dandy except for the EZ Setup when tuning for gaming you would get random blue screens.

Not really modular

RAIDMAX HYBRID 2 RX-530SS 530W ATX12V V2.2/ EPS12V SLI Ready CrossFire Ready Modular Power Supply, New Version with Build-in LED Fan On/Off Switch
RAIDMAX HYBRID 2 RX-530SS 530W ATX12V V2.2/ EPS12V SLI Ready CrossFire Ready Modular Power Supply, New Version with Build-in LED Fan On/Off Switch

Pros: Blue LED

Cons: Not really modular

Overall Review: When describing itself as modular I was expecting something like the Corsair's modular series. However, it's still a bunch of cables sticking out of the box, the only thing that makes it relatively modular is that the cables sticking out are short and you can just attach other cables on it. It's a lot of wasted space on a case.

Quite a lot wish they had some sort of guide on how to use it

Arctic Silver 5 High-Density Polysynthetic Silver Thermal Compound AS5-12G - OEM
Arctic Silver 5 High-Density Polysynthetic Silver Thermal Compound AS5-12G - OEM

Pros: I think it is good for many applications.

Cons: Needs some sort of guide as to how much to put in.

Overall Review: Since this was my first build on using thermal paste, I used to get some preset amount that was already provided so I didn't have to worry about it before.

All glitter but annoying to install

Cooler Master MasterLiquid Lite 240 AIO CPU Liquid Cooler, White LED Pump, FEP Tubing, Dual 120mm Air Balance MF, Dual Dissipation Technology
Cooler Master MasterLiquid Lite 240 AIO CPU Liquid Cooler, White LED Pump, FEP Tubing, Dual 120mm Air Balance MF, Dual Dissipation Technology

Pros: Seems to work Nice packaging

Cons: You need to have a two additional driver heads a flat head screw driver and a larger philips head. The bottom bracket tabs do not clip to the spot indicated for the LG 115X

Overall Review: My comparison for installation was a Corsair H20 liquid cooling back in 2015. On my new rig I basically installed every component with a single Philips screwdriver head. This one annoying in that the fan screws required a larger Philips head, then the mounting screws required a flat head screwdriver. I hope their pro version isn't as annoying. I think compounded by the shipping difficulty for this product just really annoyed me enough to write this review.
