DEEPCOOL CF 140 (2 in 1) Super Silent PWM intelligent control Addressable RGB Fan Motherboard Sync A-RGB Controller high performance
DEEPCOOL CF 140 (2 in 1) Super Silent PWM intelligent control Addressable RGB Fan Motherboard Sync A-RGB Controller high performance

Pros: Well built, Heavy, solid, Quiet, beautiful, RGB is vibrant from the front and back of each fan, not from the side. Simple!!!!!! Finally, fans that are designed to use the adressable header on a motherboard!!!! Without control boxes, without any proprietary software that may or may not work, and affordable!!! The 4 that I bought (2 -2 packs) are simply amazing, Each fan has a RGB 3pin that daisy chains to an addressable extension cable that can connect up to 4 fans total on 1 header. Each fan also has a 4 pin conector that can connect to a PWM header on the mobo, or you can use the 4 fan hub that comes with the fans and simply plug the 1 4pin cable to a PWM fan header on the mobo. My set up ::: My 3 front intake fans are connected to the 4 fan PWM hub, that is then plugged into Chassi fan header 2, and the 3 RGB cables are daisy chained to the 4 -3pin extension and plugged into ADD1 on my mobo. My exhaust fan is plugged directly into Chassi fan header 1, and the fans 3pin RGB cable is connected to the single addressable 3pin extension, and plugged into ADD2 on the Mobo, I have the Rog Crosshair VII, which has 2 5v adressable headers, and 2 12v 50/50 light strip headers. and Asus Aura recognized all the fans immediately!!!! no stupid nonsense to deal with, and 3 cables to cable manage. I am super impressed, all my 140mm fans are quiet and beautiful, and I HIGHLY RECOMMEND these fans to everyone that loves RGbling in their rig.

Cons: none

Overall Review: YES YES YES!!! 4 -140mm RGB fans for 75.00$$!!!!!!! Absolutely. Got here in 5 days, Great packaging, no problems. Each box of two fans come with the addressable cable for Asus or Gigabyte Add headers. If you don't have an addressable header they come with a Manual controller, but you will not be able to sync with your mobo. Do Not connect these fans to the 12v RGB headers, you will burn out the LEDs. 5v Addressable RGB headers do not power the fans, only the LEDs. Update: 5/24/19 It's been almost a year since I bought these fans, and they are still rocking!! Still just as vibrant, and the blade design actually prohibits dust build-up!! pretty amazing. I highly recommend these fans. period.

GeIL SUPER LUCE RGB SYNC 16GB (2 x 8GB) DDR4 3200 (PC4 25600) Desktop Memory Model GLWS416GB3200C16ADC
GeIL SUPER LUCE RGB SYNC 16GB (2 x 8GB) DDR4 3200 (PC4 25600) Desktop Memory Model GLWS416GB3200C16ADC

Pros: I just replaced my GeIL SUPER LUCE 8GB (2 x 4GB) 288-Pin DDR4 SDRAM DDR4 2400 (PC4 19200) Desktop Memory Model GLB48GB2400C15DC with this set, and its like nothing changed!!! all my settings from the previous set were the same @ 1st boot, and that setting was 2933mhz @1.35v. That set was the 8gb 1.25v pair and I had to bump the voltage to 1.35v to get it to go to 3200mhz, which it did, (I backed it off to be safe) however this set comes @ 1.35v, so I set it to 3200mhz, and BAM!!! just ran Memtest64 for 10 Loops, 0 errors with my Ryzen7 1700x @3775mhz. Asus B350-F mobo. Asus Aura Sync is freakin beautiful, all settings in Aura work perfectly. Very good quality products!! Used my previous set for the last 3 months, overclocked, and overvolt, and not a hiccup the whole time, but I really wanted 16gb and Aura Sync without having to overvolt, and my old set was not Aura Sync compatible (Blue RGB) I'm confident this set will be no different. UPDATE:: This RAM will run @ 3200mhz on a Asus ROG STRIX B350-F Mobo, However, NOT under D.O.C.P which will set an automatic voltage of 1.350v!! I have been getting BSOD's, and I went to the GeIL tech support forums and it says that optimum voltages for this speed is 1.270 or 1.280v, so I went into my BIOS, and set my voltage to 1.280v and here I am. My computer would have BSOD'd by now @ 1.350v. They say that they stress test all of their memory modules @1.300v. I noticed I got to a stable clock of 3000mhz @ 1.2000 native voltage and that got me thinking, that can't be right!! I believe that this set is better suited for INTEL, but it will run @ 2933mhz right out of the box on a Ryzen platform. and it will run @3200mhz @1.280v. will update if it is not stable, haven't stressed the system yet. UPDATE: Thaiphoon RAM identifier confirmed, SK Hynix AFC Kit. Will not remain stable at 3200mhz with my Ryzen 1700x. Tried everything, Memtest86 shows over 100 errors at that speed, Tried multiple configurations with Ryzen DRAM Calculator for more stable timings, they did not like that not one bit!! BSOD. Thought I had a bad memory controller on my Rog Strix B350-f mobo, upgraded to a CrosshairVII, which is much more forgiving, no BSOD but same thing, unstable above 2933mhz. Intel will love this kit, but not 1st gen Ryzen. Went for Trident Z 3000mhz, CL14-14-14-34 kit, No issues.

Cons: Package description is accurate, however 1.35v is for an INTEL system, get the Ryzen branded set to be absolutely safe, and save yourself weeks of infuriating troubleshooting.

Overall Review: This is totally Ryzen compatible, and it will run @ 2933mhz @1.280v. Not at 3200mhz, at least with 1st gen Ryzen.

Seasonic FOCUS GX-750, 750W 80+ Gold, Full-Modular, Fan Control in Fanless, Silent, and Cooling Mode, 10 Year Warranty, Perfect Power Supply for Gaming and Various Application, SSR-750FX.

Pros: Put this beauty in last night, and no more random crashes!! What an amazing product, compact, heavy duty, well laid out, it has a 12 year warranty!! What else can I say, it's a 750w Seasonic Focus Gold Plus, JohnnyGuru 9.6 rating. nuf said.

Cons: I could complain about the stiff cables, but I won't, that horse has been beat to death. They are all braided, and not horrible to see, and installation was a breeze.

Overall Review: Don't look any further, just get yourself a Seasonic, you will not be dissapointed.

Not Bad.

EVGA CLC 240mm All-In-One RGB LED CPU Liquid Cooler, 2x FX12 120mm PWM Fans, Intel, AMD, 400-HY-CL24-V1 LGA 1700 Compatible
EVGA CLC 240mm All-In-One RGB LED CPU Liquid Cooler, 2x FX12 120mm PWM Fans, Intel, AMD, 400-HY-CL24-V1 LGA 1700 Compatible

Pros: Easy to install, cable management is minimal, EVGA logo sync's with the Precision XOC software for my EVGA 1070 FTW2 ICX GPU when it works, and is quite nice. Water block is well made overall.

Cons: Well the CLC software for this unit is super buggy, I just wish EVGA would have tied all of their software into the Precision XOC package, and have only 1 program to deal with. Get a lot of DEVICE NOT FOUND errors, however the unit is always working, cause my 2700x never gets above 54c, even at load. Had to remove the ASUS AI Suite to get the software to load and control the CLC cooler, the 2 programs were in conflict for control, which was causing my computer to lock up. So I had to give up control of my Crosshair VII's on screen functionality that comes with AI Suite, and have to manually set my fan curves and all in BIOS, and install RYZEN Master software for the rest. And I replaced the EVGA stock fans with the fans that came with my Swiftech H220 x2 Prestige AIO for better temps.

Overall Review: The AIO is well built, the tubing is very flexible, and the radiator is solid, the fans are good, however the design is flawed, and air leaks from the sides, so Bordered fans work well with this design. The software is quite honestly poorly programed, and a Precision XOC menu for the CLC shouldn't be a stretch for EVGA, because that software works almost flawlessly. Having the tubing come in from the top of the water block with swivel heads at a 90degree angle would have been a better choice for tube routing, so as not to block my expensive Trident Z 14cL RGB RAM, but some Black cable tie mojo solved that issue. Fortunately building inside my custom rig is a passion for me so all this extra work was only a minor annoyance, and at the end of the day she looks darn good with this cooler, and it works very well at keeping my 2700x nice and cool. Recommend the cooler, software is not recommended, does not play nice with ASUS AI Suite.

Pros: Works perfectly, easy to configure, excellent packaging, great instructions, easy to follow.

Cons: None

Overall Review: EVGA, means quality, makes the 2x 8 pin cables almost invisible on my 1070 FTW2 ICX card.

WOW!!

G.SKILL TridentZ RGB Series 16GB (2 x 8GB) DDR4 3000 (PC4 24000) Desktop Memory Model F4-3000C14D-16GTZR
G.SKILL TridentZ RGB Series 16GB (2 x 8GB) DDR4 3000 (PC4 24000) Desktop Memory Model F4-3000C14D-16GTZR

Pros: I am so impressed!!! Brushed aluminium, silver on one side very dark grey on the other, Freakin heavy, very solid. Timings have not dissapointed, your bios will show 2133mhz though, would have liked to have a starting clock at 2400mhz but those sticks are out of range for my wallet, however My R1700x really perked up quite a bit with these tight timings, Is samsung B-Die!!!++++already started playing with the clock speeds, my processor gets super finicky at 3200 but i'm sure a Ryzen second gen CPU would solve that. Super stable at 3000mhz D.O.C.P.and with tight timings like these it makes 3200 a bit irrelevant, because your timings start to loosen up too much, diminishing returns. This is hands down the most impressive RAM kit I have ever owned. Aura Sync recognized them instantly. Got them in a Crosshair VII mobo, now I can finally use the Tweakers Paradise in my BIOS!!!

Cons: Clock starts at 2133, that is all.

Overall Review: I highly reccomend this kit, and you will not be dissapointed, as long as they work when you get them. Ryzen DRAM Calculator shows headroom all the way up to 3600mhz, My processor will not handle those clocks though, Your clock speeds are always determined by the memory controller on your MOBO, and the one in your CPU, Shop Wisely, Cheap mobo, = cheap VRMs, and other chipsets/controllers. Spend more than 80 bucks on your mobo!!! Update:: Well i've had these sticks for a month, and I have a brand new Crosshair VII Hero mobo, so I believe the IMC in my CPU has become a bit finicky!! Had to turn off D.O.C.P. and go manual. ( I really pushed this CPU this year). 3200MHz is not stable on my R7 1700x sadly!!, this is my second kit that failed 3200mhz. GeIL Super Luce 3200 failed also, but that was a SK Hynix kit with much looser timings, CL16. Originally the GeIL kit ran at spec, so I thought I lost the DRAM lottery on that kit when BSODs started appearing randomly. Still, even this kit was giving me "ram failed to initialize" problems at boot and resetting my timings to some really unacceptable CL15 timings!!! I was able to get better results @ 3.6GHz @ 1.343v with even tighter timings for 3000MHz @14-14-14-30-44 1t, and some voltage tweaks and other settings changes I got from Ryzen DRAM Calculator. (DRAM 1.365v), Today I was FINALLY able to go from a cold boot to windows with no issues!!! The new timings have actually made my system really responsive and super stable!! I'm gonna leave it there until I am able to move up to a second gen Ryzen. These timings actually gave me some FPS in every game I play, I got 5-6 FPS in Total War Warhammer II, which was really nice, so now I never fall below 54 FPS on high settings, 60 FPS is almost constant now. All of my older titles never budge from 60 with Vsync on.

Magnificent!

This was the most expensive PSU I ever bought, that being said, the quality of this solid brick of power conversion technology is outstanding!! 10 year warranty, the cables are almost of a quality on their own to be good enough in your build, I'm using Cablemod cables though, which this PSU has been certified for. It came with more cables than I will ever need. Nothing flashy, no RGB, but in the Lian Li 011 D Evo you don't see the PSU anyway. Every cable is clearly marked, and so is the cable insert plate, you could do a triple 8 pin SLI if you wanted! I am completely satisfied, and Superflower really made a bad#$* PSU here!

Great Response

I ended up having to return this item when it arrived because I discovered after I purchased it that CableMod custom cables have not been certified for this PSU because of the custom 9 pin configuration, so I contacted SuperFlower, and they responded quickly and sent the return sticker in an email that same day and took the Shipping fee out of my return amount, and waived the restocking fee. Seeing how this was my fault, I am extremely happy with the whole process!! I bought the Titanium 1000w one instead. Thank you SuperFlower, PSU works perfectly!!

Fantastic

I gave them the wrong address to begin with and they promptly cancelled my order, and refunded my payment, and I was surprisingly able to order another 5600x right away, Got it in less than 7 days. Very happy with the service, and the tracking was spot on.
