Best heat sink ever
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.
Well built, solid, spacious, great value
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.
Overall Review: This is a terrific case. Highly recommended.
Solid, fast, has AMD x570 chip set, supports PCIe 4.0
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.
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.
