AMD RYZEN 5 1600
Pros: 6 Cores 12 Threads?! Beast of a CPU. performs better than Intel Core i7-7700K and just under Intel Xeon X5650 according to Cinebench great AMD Wraith Spire Cooler included
Cons: absolutely none.
Overall Review: I wanted to build my first PC and was torn between prices and specs and blah blah. Initially, I was planning on building the typical Intel system, but with research, I quickly learned that I could build a much better, specs-wise, system at the same price with AMD. I don't think a lot of people know what AMD is now capable of without looking into it. I know I wasn't.
Seasonic 500W 80+ Bronze
Pros: Won't lie, I was hesitant on buying this based on the reviews, but I'm glad I took the chance. This was the cheapest good branded 500W power supply I could find for my first build. I know its never a good idea to go "cheap" on the PSU, but so far I have no regrets. Mine is quiet and provides adequate power for all my components.
Cons: cable management. but with patience and a good case, it's possible.
Great RAM Stick
Pros: low price and consistently performs above expectations in benchmarks
Cons: none that I can think of
Overall Review: Highly recommend for the price. I was looking for decent DDR4 RAM for my first pc build and this RAM hit the spot. No regrets so far and back to order an additional stick. PC Build: ASRock B450M-HDV R4.0 MoBo AMD Ryzen 5 1600 Radeon RX 570 8GB OC Crucial 8GB 1x8GB 2400MHz
