Most Favorable Review

Best heat sink ever

Cooler Master Hyper 212 Evo CPU Cooler, 4 CDC Heatpipes, 120mm PWM Fan, Aluminum Fins for AMD Ryzen/Intel LGA1200/1151
Cooler Master Hyper 212 Evo CPU Cooler, 4 CDC Heatpipes, 120mm PWM Fan, Aluminum Fins for AMD Ryzen/Intel LGA1200/1151

Pros: Great cooling. Easy installation.

Cons: I wish the instructions had some words, instead of pictures exclusively. It took me forever to understand that a bracket belongs underneath the motherboard; after that everything made sense and installation was easy.

Overall Review: Make sure your case is wide enough to accommodate such a tall heat sink.

Most Critical Review

Has no Windows drivers

HID DigitalPersona Crossmatch U.are.U DP 4500 Optical USB Fingerprint Reader (88003-001-S03)
HID DigitalPersona Crossmatch U.are.U DP 4500 Optical USB Fingerprint Reader (88003-001-S03)

Pros: I'm sure this thing will be terrific if the company ever decides to create a Windows 10 driver.

Cons: Works only with the vendor's enterprise software. No Windows drivers at all. This was confirmed by their tech support.

Overall Review: Returned.

Well built, solid, spacious, great value

Corsair Carbide Series 200R Black Steel / Plastic Compact ATX Mid Tower Case
Corsair Carbide Series 200R Black Steel / Plastic Compact ATX Mid Tower Case

Pros: I agree with other reviews that this is a terrific mid-tower case. Lots of room, easy cable organization, accommodates many drives and has great air flow. I don't do water cooling but it looks to me like it has good provision for that too. It ships with two 120 mm fans, one in the front and one in the rear. But I wanted to be clear about what fans can be added because I didn't see that in the specs and for some reason other reviewers have been getting it wrong. A total of 5 additional 120 or 140 mm fans can be added: two on top, one on the bottom, and two in the side panel.

Cons: None.

Overall Review: This is a terrific case. Highly recommended.

Great unit, well built, solid.

Pros: I needed a PS that could handle a number of drives and peripherals. This 850W unit is superb. Modular and easy to install.

Cons: None.

Overall Review: Highly recommended.

Solid, fast, has AMD x570 chip set, supports PCIe 4.0

ASUS Prime X570-Pro Ryzen 3 AM4 with PCIe Gen4, Dual M.2, HDMI, SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.2 Gen 2 ATX Motherboard

Pros: Easy to install, solid. Has lots of external USB 3 ports on the back panel including a USB-C connection. Supports up to two M.2 SSD drives. Has a fast and reliable Intel gigabit ethernet connection, great for my fiber optic service.

Cons: None. One review complained that the screws for the M.2 mounts were small. But lots of parts are small when you're connecting a motherboard. That shouldn't be a surprise. With a small screwdriver and a pair of glasses I had no problem at all attaching an M.2. It might have helped that I attached it before placing the motherboard into the case.

Overall Review: For me this is a perfect motherboard. Highly recommended.

Works as advertised. Great light show.

Pros: I've always had good luck with Corsair DDR memory. Snapped right into place and works perfectly.

Cons: None. It's kind of too bad if your case doesn't allow you to see the light show.

Overall Review: Highly recommended.

Perfect as advertised

On my Windows 10 desktop system I just plugged this unit into a USB port and it works impressively. It immediately recognized all nearby Wi-Fi networks and connected quickly with a password. Speeds are faster than I thought possible with Wi-Fi, though it's only about two feet from my router. I chose my wired connection as the default since I need Wi-Fi connectivity for this machine less often. When using the wired connection a little airplane (get it?) appears in my task tray. Perfect.
