Pros: 12 year warranty.
Overall Review: I've returned to Newegg to give this a review after 13 months of ownership of the PSU.
Sadly, the PSU has stopped working 13 months into ownership. The load on the PSU was a relatively constant 700-800 Watts, despite being rated for 1200, I never loaded it at or near its ceiling. At least it has a 12 year warranty, which, in my experience, I need.
The PSU today emitted the tell-tale smell of burnt electrical wires as it is clearly on its last legs.
I hope your ownership experience is better than mine, but if I were to do it all over again I would likely keep looking in the PSU space.
Pros: 16C / 32T. Mic drop.
Cons: At present, it's a bit of a budget buster.
Overall Review: No problems as a drop-in upgrade into my existing MSI X370 Gaming Pro Carbon. I did require the latest BIOS update, of course. However, after updating my BIOS it was a simple, drop-in upgrade that I've been super pleased with since. Nice to see AMD on top again these days.
Pros: It's cost effective.
It cools very nicely.
Overall Review: To me, this is "the standard" thermal paste for which others seek to emulate.
Pros: Powerful air cooling solution that will significantly lower your thermals.
Made of high-quality, not "flimsy" components.
Good brand and reputation; they are especially helpful when new sockets come along and you want to migrate your cooler to your next build.
Cons: Maybe next time I'll go for the ChromeBlack version that Noctua has out now - the brown colour scheme is getting a little old.
Overall Review: This is the 2nd NH-D15 I've owned. I'm still using another one from a few years back and they both work great. Truly, this is the "standard" to which others will benchmark and compare against. You will not be disappointed if you choose to invest in this cooler.
Pros: Super fast.
Cons: Included SATA cable would be nice.
Overall Review: This SSD was super easy to install. Samsung's data migration software is a godsend. I simply opened up the old PC, connected the SSD to power and SATA, and powered it up. Launching the data migration software was a breeze, and the whole previous hard drive copied to this new drive rather quickly. Once complete, I removed the old HDD in its entirety, being sure to keep it as a back-up.

My boot times went from 45 seconds (yes, I timed it) to 9 - NINE - seconds.
Samsung's Magician software is also super handy, with lots of tools to keep the drive running in tip-top shape.
Cons: I'm struggling to think of any cons. It's actually well-priced at present.
Overall Review: Truly, if you're upgrading an older SATA-based PC, buy this.
Pros: No issues with this RAM. I was upgrading a workstation in an office setting. As such, I did not need fancy heat spreaders, lights, etc, for this machine.
Cons: I would have preferred some stronger shipping materials, the package was a little, shall I say, "bendy". But hardly worth taking off an egg for.
Overall Review: Good RAM, good price, go for it.
Pros: It's Noctua, you just can't go wrong. Solid fans delivering good cooling with low dB.
Overall Review: Would definitely recommend this product.
Overall Review: Would recommend; a strong PSU. Solid cabling.
Pros: It gets the job done.
Cons: The included battery lasted only a week, then had to be replaced. This despite the battery's date being in 2022 (purchased Jan. 2020). So I removed one egg for the poor battery.
Overall Review: I would recommend this, yes. Just make sure you have some batteries of your own on hand.
Overall Review: I have a MSI x370 Gaming Pro Carbon. This is the *first* time I've had RAM able to run on this MOBO with advertised speed. Installed new DIMMs, went to BIOS, loaded XMP profile. I then manually increased the voltage to 1.35v from default.
No issues. 3200Mhz.
Pros: Able to achieve 3.25 GHz (base clock = 250 MHz) on air, not one single extra volt required. That's Prime stable, by the way ;-)
Cons: None. Bravo AMD for low prices.
Pros: This is a superb drive. It's very fast and reliable. Seagate definitely figured things out since the firmware debacle of previous generation drives.
I would definitely purchase again.
Cons: None coming to mind.
Pros: Passed memtest86+ on arrival. No issues. Solid. Stable.
