Easy cable management (even includes zip ties)
Basic rgb controller
Will fit any GPU.
High quality packaging
Overall Review: If you are on the fence, buy this case. you will not regret it.
Bought this case on a recommendation from Gamers Nexus and Cooler Master did not disappoint. With good cable management- which this case makes a breeze to do- my CPU and GPU temps dropped significantly from my previous case (even if it was a budget case the difference is huge). dropped a good 12-15c off my CPU and 10-11 off my GPU and I couldn't be happier with how it looks.
Thought this case would be smaller and might be tight for extra large cards but make no mistake, there's plenty of legroom. I picked up an Asus ROG Strix 08g RTX 2070 and it doesn't come close to being tight.
Asrock x370 Taichi
Ryzen 5 1600
G.Skill TridentZ 2x8gb 3200mhz
Asus ROG Strix 08g RTX 2070
Pros: auto overclocks to over 1800 clock speeds when you start a game
LEDs and the card itself look awesome
Overall Review: I mainly play at 1080p capped at 60fps with plans to upgrade my monitor, and am currently playing a lot of Black Desert Online. even on the remastered settings I can't get the framerate to budge off of 60. plugged it into my TV and 1440p was the same story, 4k saw it leave 60 but not by all that much. ran around 45-55fps.
Going from a Gigabyte auros rx580 on high/mid settings bouncing off of my 100% fan ramp around 68-70c to this, on maxed out settings on the remastered setting it only hits about 50c which is a huge change.

2x8 g.skill tridentz 3200
Asus strix rog 08c rtx 2070
Pros: Good core speeds (overclock isn't even necessary)
Actually good built in graphics
Low power consumption
Less $$ than the blue team
Cons: Makes me feel stupid for having an old 4gb r7 370 that barely keeps pace with this app.
Overall Review: Budget gaming PC built with this wrecking ball of an APU came to $575. Handles every game I've thrown at it in 1080p in the mid range on graphics settings. That's just the APU. No video card. Black desert online, GTAV, Monster Hunter World, PUBG - you name it. The little engine that could doesn't just run these games, it runs them WELL. If you're on a budget, this is the answer to your CPU and GPU needs. Might even shave some dollars off your PSU with that low power consumption.
ASRock b450 pro4 Mobo
Ryzen 2400g apu

Whipped into a $30 DIY case with two fans.
Pros: still extremely satisfied, not a single hiccup after 10 months of ownership and paired with my x370 taichi board, this CPU is more than what I need. (gaming needs).
Cons: ... no lights I suppose..
Overall Review: saw how expensive intels were. said I'd get an Intel after having an fx8120 for a long time and just before it was time to upgrade I took a chance on the then new ryzen line. spent half as much and I couldn't be more impressed.
on a budget? buy this CPU. or the 2400g, has built in graphics.
Pros: Top of the line board with mid grade price.
Board was essentially plug n play
Pairs fantastically with a Ryzen 5 1600 with the standard wraith cooler and 16gb of 3200 RAM.
Cons: RGB is a bit underwhelming.
Overall Review: Going from a Gigabyte 970a-d3 board with a FX-8120 on it and man, I can't get over the difference in speed, reliability, and unnecessary overclockability with a stock cooler.
Seriously, planned on switching to Intel and then Ryzen dropped, figured I'd give AMD another chance to prove themselves. The only shortcoming of this Mobo/CPU combo is the game mine came with, Quake Champions, is awful.
Pros: the sticks look as fast as they are.
Cons: I feel like ram in general is overpriced.
Pros: Looks nice
Cons: Audio sounds tinny and very low bass.
Makes crackling sounds even when phone is handled lightly, sometimes pausing music and skipping songs.
Overall Review: Bought this cord to replace a cord I bought at a store in Texas for $6, I didn't think aux cable quality could change the sound of the audio as much as this cable does. The last cable I am replacing isn't actually broken, it still works, just the plastic bits around the connector have snapped off and it looks crummy. I thought it was just me so I went back and used my old cable and yeah, the Wavlink cable delivers way less bass than the other cable I'm trying to replace. Would try to get my money back, but it's $5 so it's not exactly worth the trouble.
Bottom line, the cable works if you don't touch your phone too much. Just barely.
Low bass and it crackles a lot when my phone is being moved. I would normally assume that means my aux port is dirty, but other cables don't make the crackling so I know it's the cord.
-Good Picture (once you mess with the settings)
Cons: -Not a fan of the curved base stand
-Not as bright as it could be
-The presets are terrible
Overall Review: Honestly, I upgraded from a 21 inch Acer, given the quality of that monitor, I don't know why I went for an LG. I love my 49 inch led LG tv, but I'm not a huge fan of their monitors (in comparison to others I have had). It's not low quality by any means, but I guess I expected more.
It's not a bad monitor, but apart from size, I liked my old Acer better. Sorry, LG, I'll always have your tvs though.
Wish I could give 3 1/2. I would give 3 but my LG tv is... eggcellent, so the tie breaker rounds up.
