Cables could be shorter.
Cons: Cables are literally almost 4 feel long!
Overall Review: These fans are beautiful. They don’t make a lot of noise and they DO DAISY CHAIN TOGETHER. I was worried I wouldn’t be able to use all three since my MB only has 2 RGB headers but they all link together and plug in to ONE RGB header. My only complaint is that the cables are like 40 inches long which makes it super difficult to manage them neatly. And that is the ONLY reason I gave them 4 eggs instead of 5. Plan on spending a few bucks on a bag of clear zipties if you have a see through case where you can’t hide your cable nest. Otherwise, 9/10
Second pair of A50's for portable gaming.
Pros: This is my second A50 headset, both are the new generation style. I bought the first one from Astro about three years ago. Last year I bought a gaming laptop for on the go gaming while traveling for work and I got tired of swapping the one headset back and forth so I bought another. The sound quality IMO is amazing. I have had Astro headsets for the past ten years. Bought an A40 in 2012 and the only reason I got the A50's was the wireless convenience. The Command Center software is very easy and the battery charges fast/lasts for at least 13-14 hours straight at full charge. The headset feels very sturdy and not flimsy like some Turtles Ive held. Ive worn them for a solid 16+ hours straight and never noticed any irritation or discomfort. The flip up mic is DOPE vs a button you have to push. Plus the fact that you can control the voice/game channel balance, volume, Dolby, and EQ all from the headset instead of having to swap windows to the app itself is a big plus to be.
Cons: The only minor, MINOR complaint I have about this headset is that you cannot just slam it in the dock and walk away. You have to take the extra three seconds to actually PLACE it in the dock so it will charge correctly. Everyone complaining about the dock being trash are probably just impatient people that are rough on things to begin with.
Overall Review: Overall the headset is one of the best IMO. Yes they are a little pricey but you do get what you pay for. The one tiny little con isn't enough for me to make it a 9/10 so I give it a solid 10 out of 10 would recommend over and over again
Overall Review: These sticks are probably the best looking RAM I have ever seen. The brushed metal heat spreader is gorgeous. The RGB is super versatile and works literally any way you want it to (with breathing, pulsing, starry night, rainbow, even music). The XMP profiles make it so easy to overclock with just a click. Definitely 10/10 would recommend.
Why are my temps so cool?
Overall Review: Seriously. This thing kept my Ryzen 9 3900X below 50 degrees celsius for an hour long stress test. Coolant temp was around 47 when the test was done. I had the 240mm version strapped to an FX-8370E on my old computer for over three years and it kept that fairly cool as well. Definitely worth the little bit of extra money for the EVGA name if you want to push your CPU and keep it cold.
3rd Consecutive ASUS motherboard...
Pros: Just about everything...
Cons: Not really a TRUE con, but the AURA software included in Armory Crate does not let you control the individual headers, RAM, MB lighting etc. It’s all or nothing.
Overall Review: This is the 3rd ASUS motherboard I have purchased over the last six or seven years and I won’t buy any other brand. Everything is clearly labeled, the board feels super solid, and all the ROG stuff looks cool too (if it were a car the RGB would add probably 50 horsepower). The ease of OCing is a breeze with the no frills BIOS. Everything has a description to tell you what it does and ASUS gives you literal full control over everything. If you want a pure animal that you can fine tune down to the wire and is also fairly priced, this is the motherboard for you.
Overall Review: Bought this as an upgrade for my 5 year old FX-8370E and it is without a doubt worth every penny. No it’s not a ThreadRipper, and it probably is overkill for what I am using it for, but it will definitely do anything and more than a hardcore gamer would want it to do.
Lied about shipping and condition of item.
I bought from this seller because they had the lowest price for a NEW item and the description said "Ships from United states". But I should've known better because I got the tracking info and sure enough it shipped from Hong Kong. The item arrived earlier than anticipated which is cool but when I opened the shipping box and saw the product packaging was not only damaged, but already opened as well??? Then I look inside to make sure everything is there and the product has wear and tear marks on it!!! Come on! At least put "New open box" or something along those lines in the description if that's the case. Don't market something as a new item and then send a used item to a customer. I wish I could post pictures on here to prove my case but from what I have read on here Im not the only one that's had an issue with this seller. Hopefully Newegg will step in and do something about these issues.
