Super fast, nice heatspreader
Pros: comes with cupper heat spreader actually reachers advertised speeds, stays pretty cool (at least in well ventilated case)
Cons: Slightly more expensive than the sabrant drive It's possible that getting the sabrant and using an aluminum heat spreader that comes with your motherboard will give you effectively the same performance for a little cheaper.
Overall Review: Actually reaches advertised speeds and stays there. It benched Read: 4996MB/s, Write: 4465 MB/s in crystal disk (Seq Q32T1). Did not see temps over 50C while benching.
Fully featured, decent price
Pros: good IO options (upcoming TB card, lots of USB 3/3.2, USB 3.2 type c) intel gygabit lan supports fast ram (running 3600 c16)
Cons: not the most generous VRM according to some reviewers. Though that should only be an issue if you plan to aggressively overclock a 36950x or something. But overclocking 3000 series cpus doesn't really get any more performance so it's not really a con. No built in wifi
Overall Review: If you don't want built in wifi, I think this is a great board. Lots of modern IO and a good price. You also aren't paying extra for ultra rare and expensive capacitors. This review for ASRock review rebate program. -Ian Hoover
Nice looking case, good ventilation, dumb fans
Cons: The RGB fans can only be controlled from the corsair fan controller and honestly the presets are dumb and limited. Can't adjust brightness or really do anything beyond choose between 6 preset colors. Can't even turn the lights off without unplugging them.
Overall Review: Very nice case especially with the deals going around. nicely made with good dust filter on top front and one on bottom for the PSU. Coming with 3 120mm fans increases the value proposition.
