Flawless

Team T-FORCE VULCAN Z 16GB (2 x 8GB) 288-Pin PC RAM DDR4 3200 (PC4 25600) Desktop Memory Model TLZGD416G3200HC16CDC01
Team T-FORCE VULCAN Z 16GB (2 x 8GB) 288-Pin PC RAM DDR4 3200 (PC4 25600) Desktop Memory Model TLZGD416G3200HC16CDC01

Pros: Works at the rated speed and without the use of bulky heat sinks Ran on my ASUS TUF GAMING B550M-Plus and Ryzen R5 2600 I love the sleek look.

Overall Review: I've used Team Group RAM in my previous build and am once again a happy customer. I used these in a resurrection of an old HP Pavillion I bought used as a non working unit for parts only merely for this specific case as it reminded me of a PC my brother gave me in the early 2000s. I also wanted to make a sleeper gaming PC and this unassuming little HP was my pick and have modded the case to install two 120mm fans to increase airflow. In all am very pleased with the outcome. My thanks to Newegg and Teamgroup for their help in keeping this PC case out of the scrap heap.

AMD RYZEN to the rescue

Pros: Great value and still relevant in 2020 Included cooler works like a charm Boots up in my ASUS TUF Gaming B550M-Plus natively runs 3200 mhz ram no problem

Cons: None

Overall Review: I chose this CPU for a revival project of mine that involves an old HP xt963 that I bought as a non working unit for the case alone because it reminded me of a PC my brother gave to me in the early 2000s. That PC I have spent so many hours on it and I regretted selling it to friends a few years later who ultimately threw the entire thing away instead of asking if I'd like it back. This time I will not be giving up my little sleeper of a gaming machine. Big thanks to Newegg and AMD to thank for making this possible and helping keep this case off the scrap heap. Am totally pleased with the results and I intend to take this to future LAN parties since its smaller and lighter than my tower as well as act as a back up gaming machine if in case my main rig goes down.

Pros: 512 GB low cost pretty responsive

Cons: none

Overall Review: I used this in my sleeper PC project that I based off a PC my brother gave me in the early 2000s, I also used TeamGroup Vulcan 3200mhz ram and so far pleased with the results in reviving an old HP xt963 and keeping it out of a scrap heap. Big Thanks again to Newegg and Teamgroup for making my project possible.

Decent PSU

Pros: 500 watt inexpensive Well built

Cons: Non Modular but knew this upon ordering no eggs removed.

Overall Review: I used this in the resurrection of an old HP Pavilion xt963 I bought used as parts only unit for the case alone feeling nostalgic for a PC my brother gave to me in the early 2000s. I won't bore you to tears as I told this story in my other reviews of products I used in the making of my little sleeper PC bringing it back from the dead. So instead I'll show pictures of the end product. Big Thanks to Newegg and EVGA for making this project of mine possible.

Wait Intel makes something affordable?

Intel 660p Series M.2 2280 512GB PCIe 3.0 x4, NVMe 3D2 QLC Internal Solid State Drive (SSD) SSDPEKNW512G8X1

Pros: As the title suggests I am not used to Intel having value oriented products but I can say I love the price of these NVME M.2 SSDs and I am not afraid to give credit to Intel making a decent product the masses can afford. Kudos to you Intel from an AMD user. Works great on my ASUS Crosshair Hero VII so far no issues been rock solid the last few weeks of using it. I dual boot both Windows10 and Ubuntu (linux) and find myself at the desktop sign in within a second after the bios posts. I just love the speed bump from switching to M.2 vs Sata.

Cons: None

Overall Review: I'd highly recommend these to anyone looking to get away from SATA 6gbs. Intel really has a value component that isn't robbing the bank. Sure its not as fast compared to Samsung's Evo family of M.2 NVME drives but seriously its fast enough and comes at a sweeter price.

Solid sata SSD

Team Group GX2 2.5" 1TB SATA III Internal Solid State Drive (SSD) T253X2001T0C101
Team Group GX2 2.5" 1TB SATA III Internal Solid State Drive (SSD) T253X2001T0C101

Pros: 1TB SSD at a reasonable price. 2.5 drive mounts just about anywhere and cases makers accommodate them. Its black branding sticker doesn't stand out unlike other drives that use a colorful sticker that may clash with certain aesthetics. The PRICE is outstanding for solid state storage I bought 2 of these wished I had more funds I'd completely switch out all my mechanical drives.

Cons: None

Overall Review: Its storage not the most exciting thing to go into a PC but plays an important role. I really just plucked it into my system and was working within minutes after initializing and formating the SSD in disk management. I have no complaints and feel TeamGroup makes a competent product having bought some of their DDR4 Ryzen ready Dark Pro 16gb 3200mhz speed ram kit a few years ago.
