Pros: Super Fast render times
Cons: Gets very hot and feels like a space heater at times
Overall Review: My old PC had an i7 6700K processor. I would render an image at 2k full screen and it would take around 45mins to an hour. With this processor, the speed is reduced to 1 to 2 mins.
Pros: Great Design
Cons: Waste of space by power supply area.
Misses XL motherboard size by 0.5inch
Overall Review: Make sure you are not using an XL motherboard. It could have been a nice all-around case if it had room for an XL motherboard. It's literally to small by 0.5inch. Very frustrating.
Pros: 3200Mhz? Not sure how true that is.
Cons: Base speed is 2133Mhz
If your system has multiple ram stick from different manufacturers you will not get the advertised 3200Mhz speed.
Overall Review: Once installed I checked my bios and saw these chips have a base speed of 2133Mhz which is not what they advertised. You have to enable a profile in the Bios to utilize the 3200Mhz speed. This is a problem when paired with ram of a different speed. The profile only works with ram chips of the same frequency.
The bottom line, you will get slow speeds if you have different ram in your system.
Not recommended if you plan to upgrade your ram speed. Eventually, these chips will have to be discarded.
Pros: Good ram
Cons: Base speed is 2666Mhz
Does not run at 3200 Mhz when paired with other 3200Mhz ram with different base speeds
Overall Review: GSkill has been advertising 3200Mhz ram for cheap prices. Turns out the ram modules have very slow base speeds. Profiles have to be enabled in the bios to utilize the advertised speed. However, If you have different 3200Mhz Ram Modules with lower base speeds (2133Mhz) The computer will slow to the lowest base speed. In my opinion, this is kinda false advertising. Beware!
