Stunning but a bit whiny

MSI Suprim GeForce RTX 4090 24GB GDDR6X PCI Express 4.0 Video Card RTX 4090 SUPRIM LIQUID X 24G
MSI Suprim GeForce RTX 4090 24GB GDDR6X PCI Express 4.0 Video Card RTX 4090 SUPRIM LIQUID X 24G

Pros: - Looks amazing - Runs extremely cool - Basically silent if you put Noctua fans on and set them to 50% - High performing out of the box - Two slot card

Cons: - 520w power cap even though it has a four plug adapter - Coil whine when gaming, though it got a bit better with time and use - I would rather a 360 radiator - Doesn't really perform any better than the cheapest 4090 cards

Overall Review: It was the one I wanted and besides some coil whine, it's amazing. Just remember that all 4090's run pretty much the same, so get the one you like and can afford.

Most Critical Review

Broken Out of the Box

GIGABYTE Z690 AORUS XTREME LGA 1700 Intel Z690 EATX Motherboard with DDR5, Quad M.2, PCIe 5.0, USB 3.2 Gen2X2 Type-C, Intel WiFi 6E, AQUANTIA 10GbE LAN, Intel Thunderbolt 4
GIGABYTE Z690 AORUS XTREME LGA 1700 Intel Z690 EATX Motherboard with DDR5, Quad M.2, PCIe 5.0, USB 3.2 Gen2X2 Type-C, Intel WiFi 6E, AQUANTIA 10GbE LAN, Intel Thunderbolt 4

Pros: - Good looks - Good performance - Tons of USB ports - Tons of cooling with almost everything covered in metal heatsinks (look at the M.2 heatsink!)

Cons: - The RAM cover never worked - Terrible RMA process, they wouldn't send a new cover I had to send the entire board back - Not worth the extra money

Overall Review: There is no reason to buy this board other than you can. And, even then it might not work. That's a lot of money for a broken board.

Everything that was promised

G.SKILL Trident Z Royal Series 32GB (2 x 16GB) 288-Pin PC RAM DDR4 4266 (PC4 34100) Desktop Memory Model F4-4266C16D-32GTRG

Pros: - Blazing fast XMP profile - Good looks, if you're into the style

Cons: - Collect finger prints from people who haven't even been in the same room as them - Poor cost per dollar - Some might not like the looks

Overall Review: Unless you have to have this look, get the Trident and save the money and finger prints.
