Most Favorable Review

Awesome for VMs!

AMD Ryzen Threadripper 1st Gen - RYZEN Threadripper 1920X Whitehaven (Zen) 12-Core / 24 Threads 3.5 GHz Socket sTR4 180W YD192XA8AEWOF Desktop Processor
AMD Ryzen Threadripper 1st Gen - RYZEN Threadripper 1920X Whitehaven (Zen) 12-Core / 24 Threads 3.5 GHz Socket sTR4 180W YD192XA8AEWOF Desktop Processor

Pros: -Picked this up for $689 while it was on sale. That is a whole lot of processor for $689 -Currently using it to host 3 gaming VMs for my WoW guildies during LAN nights -Overclockable. Chip doesn't hit boost frequencies in a VM environment FYI -Kept me from having to buy another expensive intel chip! -Soldered IHS -PCIe lanes for all! -Works wonderfully with my Zenith Extreme board

Cons: -NONE

Most Critical Review

Refurbished means nothing for stuck pixels

Pros: -Discount off new price

Cons: -I have a cluster of 4 pixels almost in the dead center of the screen that are stuck in a teal color. Horrible.

TOXIC is BACK! (With a catch)

Sapphire TOXIC AMD Radeon RX 6900 XT Air Cooled Gaming Graphics Card with 16GB GDDR6, AMD RDNA 2 (11308-11-20G)
Sapphire TOXIC AMD Radeon RX 6900 XT Air Cooled Gaming Graphics Card with 16GB GDDR6, AMD RDNA 2 (11308-11-20G)

Pros: First time a Toxic has been made in basically a decade. Huge boost clock for an XTX die to around 2500mhz. Great Sapphire build and lighting quality. Love the Toxic theme.

Cons: Contrary to popular belief, the Air cooled version of the Toxic is NOT using XTXH silicon. XTX does come with a 110C hotspot limit vs the XTXH 95C limit (except Red Devil Ultimate) so this card is more forgiving in thermals while still boosting like an XTXH card. Toxic Boost in Trixx software is hit or miss depending on the load. Sometimes it results in a downclock.

Overall Review: Took one egg off because Sapphire opted to stick XTX silicon in a top tier GPU. I would of taken one additional egg off, but somehow they are making regular XTX silicon in these cards boost to over 2500mhz stock. I am just thankful that the Toxic lineup is back!

SAPPHIRE NITRO+ Radeon RX 580 4GB GDDR5 CrossFireX Support ATX Video Card w/ Backplate (UEFI), SAMSUNG MEMORY 100411NT+4G-2L

Pros: -Maintains 1411 core with ease -4GB Polaris card with 2000mhz memory! Most 4GB cards are clocked at 1750mhz!

Cons: -I wish these had the same fans as the LE model

It is only ONE fan....for $20

SAPPHIRE NITRO Gear LED Fan (Cyan Blue Color) Model 4N001-01-20G

AWESOME cooler and solid boost clocks!

AMD Ryzen 7 2nd Gen - Ryzen 7 2700X Pinnacle Ridge (Zen+) 8-Core 3.7 GHz (4.3 GHz Max Boost) Socket AM4 105W YD270XBGAFBOX Desktop Processor
AMD Ryzen 7 2nd Gen - Ryzen 7 2700X Pinnacle Ridge (Zen+) 8-Core 3.7 GHz (4.3 GHz Max Boost) Socket AM4 105W YD270XBGAFBOX Desktop Processor

Pros: -The Wraith Prism cooler looks incredible. Be sure to download the LIghting tool from Cooler Master and use the USB cable and plug it directly into a USB 2.0 header on your motherboard if you want full independent lighting control. -Works on current AM4 x370 boards with a BIOS update. No more having to buy a whole new board with every CPU like intel makes you do. Updated the BIOS on my Crosshair and everything was fine. -I see boost clocks as high as 4.295GHz on single core, 4GHz all core on medium load, and 3.7-3.9GHz under intense stress testing at stock settings. -Running my GALAX HOF ram at 3200mhz no problem. -8 cores of pure Ryzen goodness.

Cons: -It can't make me a sandwich. -I wish the cooler had a different latching mechanism, but this one does make it compatible with legacy AMD boards so I get it.

Overall Review: -Seriously buy it. The multiple advantages this has over the 8700k more than makes up for the small IPC difference.
