So far so Good! Update:12/2/18 UPDATE TWO: 12/10/18(RayTracing)

GIGABYTE AORUS GeForce RTX 2080 8G Graphics Card, 3 x Stacked WINDFORCE Fans, 8GB 256-Bit GDDR6, GV-N2080AORUS-8GC Video Card
GIGABYTE AORUS GeForce RTX 2080 8G Graphics Card, 3 x Stacked WINDFORCE Fans, 8GB 256-Bit GDDR6, GV-N2080AORUS-8GC Video Card

Pros: Quiet! : The Aorus turns off the fans when in idle, or when not needed for cooling. Fast!: I upgraded from a 980 ti (finally!). I know the 2080 is basically a 1080ti but regardless the performance is incredible, my fps went from 30's-40's in 4k to 60 solid! Cool!: I do have a decent amount of fans so I can them low and quiet without compromising cooling. At max case fan speed the card stays around 63C when under heavy load.

Cons: None yet, besides that the performance is on par with the "previous gen" (1080 ti). I wish Nvidia would have created a larger performance gap between generations.

Overall Review: RayTracing: I got the raytracing to work after joining Windows Insider Program which I believe is the only way to get the DXR update (if you missed the failed October Update). And the performance in BFV is awful. The card can run BFV in 4k all settings maxed at about 58fps, with RTX on if runs at about 14fps. The performance is terribly slow at the moment and for only a moderate boost in graphics. Hopefully they iron out some updates soon. UPDATE TWO: BFV released an RTX update again and the performance is now manageable, with this card I can run 1440 ultra settings with DXR on medium at 60fps with some dips into 50's. With time I believe the DXR drivers will run great but I am still not so crazy about Real Time Raytracing. The game looks better at 4k with it off than 1440 on medium in most cases, and to an untrained eye you'll never tell the difference between DXR on or off. It is up to the individual user in the end whether it is worth it or not.

Looks good and Works

PC Cooler Ladybird PWM Version - CPU Cooler with 100mm Ultra Silent PWM Cooling Fan - For Intel LGA 1156/1155/1151/1150/775, AMD FM2+/FM2/FM1/AM3+/AM3/AM2+/AM2/940/939/754

Pros: Keeps CPU about 5-8 C cooler than stock cooler, not a huge difference but I bought it for an orange themed mini itx.

Cons: Fan is RED not ORANGE. Heatsink feels very very very cheap.

Overall Review: Heatsink is orange while the fan is RED, why? Didn't matter much to me since I had other fans to paint but the picture (at least on my phone and computer) looks orange.

Fan-tastic Fans... (see what i did there?) UPDATED ON 1/23/2019

GAMDIAS AEOLUS M1-1205R 120MM RGB 5 in 1 Fan Pack with Controller and Remote, 5-Pack.
GAMDIAS AEOLUS M1-1205R 120MM RGB 5 in 1 Fan Pack with Controller and Remote, 5-Pack.

Pros: !! I bought these fans because I was switching from an older watercooled GPU to a newer air cooled one !! (AORUS 2080 Triple-Fan in case you're wondering) They keep my GPU in the mid 60's and low 70's (celcius) under full load which i'm happy with. They are incredibly silent, yet push tons of air! The controller box is very simple, the LED's/Speed/Brightness are all controlled with a remote. Hub supports up to 6 (GAMDIAS AEOLUS Plug (more on this in Cons)) fans, as well as a cable to link multiple GAMDIAS AEOLUS Controllers together for even more fans (if you're into that).

Cons: The fan connector is proprietary I think, i've never seen a connector like the ones these fans have... Which means that if your control hub goes out you can't just connect the fans to your MoBo, you'd need to buy another GAMDIAS AEOLUS Controller. ********!!!!!!!UPDATE!!!!!!!!!******* Exactly 2 months after I purchased these 1 of the 5 fans went out. I'm only taking one egg off since I only used 4 fans and was able to replace the broken one with the 5th unused fan.

Overall Review: The connector for RGB Sync is only a 3-Pin (the 3rd to last pin insert is nonexistant and has plastic in it) which means it only syncs with certain RGB boards... Asus Aura, Asrock's whatever-its-called, and Gigabytes proprietary plug. (We seriously need a standard for this).

Does what it should, perfectly.

Pros: I moved my computer into a different room so I no longer have ethernet to my pc, I went through about 3 different USB WiFi adapters and I am not happy with any of them, frequent disconnects and slow speeds. So I bought this, and it works like a charm. I recommend it to anyone looking for a good wifi adapter.

Cons: Took 2 weeks to get here, cannot pay for upgraded shipping either.

BEAAAASSSTTTT

AMD Ryzen 5 2nd Gen - RYZEN 5 2600X Pinnacle Ridge (Zen+) 6-Core 3.6 GHz (4.2 GHz Max Boost) Socket AM4 95W YD260XBCAFBOX Desktop Processor
AMD Ryzen 5 2nd Gen - RYZEN 5 2600X Pinnacle Ridge (Zen+) 6-Core 3.6 GHz (4.2 GHz Max Boost) Socket AM4 95W YD260XBCAFBOX Desktop Processor

Pros: - Super fast! - Boost up to 4.1GHz whenever it thinks it needs it! (no OC) - Lotsa cores and threads - Runs ice cold even under load for hours (The hottest it's ever been is 62 C after hours of gameplay with 45% utilization!!! p.s. I do have an aftermarket cooler but its a 1 fan 120mm heatsink so nothing crazy)

Cons: - It doesn't do household chores :/

Overall Review: I would absolutely recommend this CPU, get high clocked RAM if you can, or something that can be OC'd higher. Ryzen processors feed off fast RAM. Also if you're considering this, just buy it already!

Great Motherboard

Pros: Overclocked Ryzen 3 1300x to 3.9Ghz no problem RAM Overclocked to 2800Mhz no problem as well

Cons: None so far

Awesome little case with 1 flaw

Pros: Case is sleek Arrangement is smart, putting the Mobo upside down means if your PSU is shorter than 140mm you can fit a graphics card up to about 10 inches (don't hold me to that, other factors as well.) Cons: Brushed metal paint scratches waaaayyyy too easily, literally dropped a fan screw and it left a small gash. Absolutely no room for cable management, unless you drill new holes or something some cables WILL be visible. Needs more fans!!!!! I drilled 2 120mm intake fans on top which fit good and look cool I just wish they were there anyway, one intake fan is not enough to cool the entire machine especially when I'm running overclock.ls. Other thoughts: After drilling the two 120mm fan slots on top the cooling increased 10 fold I swear, if you have the know how's or the ambition DO IT!! It is a great case with a few flaws not worth taking an egg off for, if you're looking for the smallest mini itx case than can fit kid size gpus and full CPU coolers in THIS IS IT!
