CHEAP AND AWESOME
Pros: -Cheap -Works exactly as advertised -Response time is insanely fast -Color is perfect -Menu is super easy to navigate and is also very intuitive -Curved screen
Cons: -Very small amount of backlight bleed
Overall Review: This monitor is insane for the price. It looks and feels high quality. I am having no issues with it, other than the very small amount of backlight bleed but it really doesn't bug me at all. This was a huge step up for me since I came from a 60hz 1080p monitor with a 15ms response time. The 1ms response time and 144hz refresh rate is an extremely noticeable upgrade. The Freesync works perfectly with my Sapphire Nitro+ 8gb RX 580 and makes everything buttery smooth, even when the frame rates dip below 60 for brief moments. When I was using Vsync it would be really choppy when it would drop below 60fps so adaptive sync technology is definitely the way to go if you're in the market for a new monitor. P.S. The monitor did come with a Display Port cable.
Pros: -Fast -RGB lighting and custom heatsink
Cons: -None for me
Overall Review: I wanted to upgrade my 4x4 16gb kit to a 4x8 32gb kit so I ordered two sets of these. Runs perfectly at stock 3200 profile on my MSI x370 mobo. The software that you get from Patriot's website is very robust and works well. The default lighting profiles are really cool and you can customize each of the 5 individual lights separately. I'm satisfied with this product and I would definitely recommend.
The Best ARGB Fans
Pros: -Look and feel premium -Included ARGB controller -Tons of accessories in the box
Cons: -None for me
Overall Review: Deepcool has come a long way in a short period of time. These fans look and feel premium and the box is full of stuff to make your life easier. Would definitely recommend.
The Best RX Vega 64 Money Can Buy Right Now
Pros: -Great gaming performance -Looks epic -Comes with its own GPU brace (You're definitely going to need one) -Feels premium -Stock overclock is pretty generous
Cons: -VERY power hungry -Noticeable coil whine
Overall Review: If you see this card in stock and it's anywhere remotely close to MSRP, buy it. This thing is an absolute behemoth of a card so luckily it comes with a GPU brace. The triple fan design keeps this card cool and the lights are incredible. Coil whine is very noticeable with higher FPS but using AMD software (not Vsync) to limit framerates to what your monitor can handle is a great workaround for that. For people that don't wish to experiment with undervolting, this card is hands down the most power hungry card I have ever seen. It will easily hit 300-500w while under full load so make sure your PSU can handle your system with that number in mind (PCPartpicker lists the power consumption of this card as up to 250w...and I can only assume the person who put that number in there was joking and had a good laugh with his buddies). I was fortunate enough to get this about a month ago for just under $600 and I do not regret it. If you're looking for the best that AMD has to offer, this is it.
I Can't Believe This Actually Exists!
Pros: -Lights are bright -24 pin extension works great -Included controller
Cons: -A little bit of a pain to install and make it look neat. Not a big deal.
Overall Review: I was floored when this was announced a while back and I'm excited to own it. The included controller works great and has a ton of lighting modes to choose from. comes with optional 4pin and 3pin 5v ARGB connections for use with mobo or controller. It goes great with my RGB setup and I love to show it off haha.
