Pros: Works great with my ryzen 5 1600 and G.SKILL Ripjaws V Series 16GB (2 x 8GB) 288-Pin DDR4 SDRAM DDR4 3000Platform Memory Kit Model F4-3000C15D-16GVKB and GeForce GTX 1060

Cons: none yet

Overall Review: I would buy another one for my newest build But not atm. Newegg and every other store that sells PC parts are price gouging us like crazy with the GPU and Ram prices. Not buying any PC parts at all until this ends. Have a good day.

Pros: Lots of room. Great cable management! Looks great!

Cons: I want to buy another one for my new build but I'm not doing that until newegg lowers their crazy prices. Enough is enough. GPU and Ram prices are way out of line. Saving my money for now. Newegg, if you want my money, Fix those prices.

Love it

Pros: Plays everything my son wants it to with ease. Mileage will vary with each set up and game but it is worth the money. Great card.

Cons: Wasn't free

Overall Review: Solid card. I have 2 of these in the house and both are working like a charm.

Best CPU I have ever bought!

AMD Ryzen 5 1st Gen - RYZEN 5 1600 Summit Ridge (Zen) 6-Core 3.2 GHz (3.6 GHz Turbo) Socket AM4 65W YD1600BBAEBOX Desktop Processor

Pros: Cool. Fast! Have had 0 issues overclocking it to 3.9 Ghz. The cooler it comes with really is a good cooler.

Cons: Use the latest Windows 10 OS if you want to avoid issues. I installed a very old windows 10 build on this new system and this CPU hated it. Kept crashing. Had to download a newer build to get it to work. Otherwise it's running perfectly. No issues at all for 2-3 months. I do plan on buy another one for my new PC. This one was for my sons Birthday.

Overall Review: My son games a lot. Paired this with a nvid 1060 and ddr4 3000 ram. The 1060 is the bottle neck in this set up.
