Overall solid board.
Pros: -Tons of USB (10 on back, several hookups for front usb) -VRMs -SOC Fan control with bios update -Able to update bios without cpu or ram -Intergrated I/O also has LEDs which look cool if you're into that -Audio quality is pretty good compared to b350 tomahawk at least
Cons: -I couldn't get it to post with XMP default 3200mhz with 4 dimms(32gb). Granted, I have samsung E die instead of B die, This may be fixable with a bios update, and I have yet to try manually inputting timings. -Ryzen 3000 Voltage "issue" is present. Basically, it causes the voltage to spike up to 1.45 and back down repeatedly at idle(or close to idle), causing the fans to constantly ramp up to 100% and back down and temperatures to not be ideal(60c idling, 80c load using stock cooler). This isn't isolated to GB boards and AMD is looking into this, as there's a ton of threads on Reddit about this. For now I have disabled PB and although clocks aren't exceeding 3.6ghz on a 3700x, it's stable and quiet now until this gets fixed. It may not even be board related and could be fixed with a new chipset driver. Only time will tell. If that is the case I will update this review and remove this part. -Even with the SOC fan control, that thing can get pretty whiny. -No USB C, although there is a port for if your case has it.
Overall Review: This board checked all the boxes for the price. Being a "cheaper" x570 board, with tons of USB, great VRM, and fan control for the SoC fan, it's hard to pass up. For the other reviewer who had a really long post - First bootup took a while to post - it looked like it had to reboot 6-7 times before it actually posted. Ever since then, it posts within 5 seconds.
Pros: Great range, excellent router for the price. Haven't had to restart once in the two months of having it so far. Always at least 7 devices connected to wifi at once and no issue.
Cons: Gets pretty warm so that's something to keep an eye on.
Overall Review: Bought to replace an old WRT54G whose output just couldn't handle all the devices on my network.
Pros: I've had two of these for almost a year now, they look great compared to older monitors I've used. No dead pixels, quick response time, I wish newegg still sold them.
Cons: No longer available, I wanted a third. Also, since I have two, one of the power lights is brighter than the other. Small complaint, but worth noting.
Overall Review: 100% brightness is the default, and it's much too bright. Put it at 30% and it's perfect for me.
Pros: Literally plays EVERYTHING on highest settings with no issue. Runs cool, Doesn't get above 69C under load for hours. Quiet, I can't hear it over any of my other case fans.
Cons: It wasn't free. And I was worried since a lot of users seemed to get defective cards, I'm glad it hasn't been the case for me.
Overall Review: If you can afford it, definitely buy this card.
Pros: So far, I've had no issues with this chip at all. Under stock fan temps were a bit high, but I'll get to that in cons/other thoughts. It's enough to play Arma 2 which is very cpu demanding, while streaming with xsplit, AND recording with fraps full size, both of which are also very CPU dependent and still maintain a playable framerate(40+FPS)
Cons: This thing runs HOT. Idle temps with the stock fan were 50C. I bought a CM Hyper 212 and it lowered idle temps to about 40c. It doesn't go over 59c when doing anything intensive at least.
Overall Review: Apart from the temps, this is an amazing CPU for the price. I haven't even started overclocking yet, I don't really feel a need at the moment.
Item not received, no reply from seller
The tracking number I was given never was found on the carrier's website, and two weeks later I still have yet to receive the item I ordered. Seller does not reply to any emails. It was a cheap pair of headphones but newegg should have more strict guidlines about 3rd party sellers.
