Works with AMD Ryzen
Pros: Perfect ram at 2400. The Intel memory profile works on the MSI B350M motherboard. Booted up with Ryzen R5 1600 1st time. I bought this ram 1 year in advance knowing Ryzen was going to use DDR4 2400 and so I held on to till I got the Ryzen CPU and Motherboard.
Cons: Price has gone insane. I paid $26.99 on 4/14/2016, Now it's $90.99 11/11/2017
Overall Review: I do recommend this ram but in all honesty I would wait on building a new PC right now while the ram is expensive. If you see an exceptional deal on something then go for it.
To the reviewer below
Pros: To the reviewer below "JB" from your description you have a weak or bad power supply. The one you have may be new, or good; but it is weak. I got this card and it performs FLAWLESS. Beautiful and Quite. This is a 100% card. Now if you are going to play Crysis, you are going to need 2 cards.
Cons: -0- Cons.
Overall Review: Make sure you get ""ALL""" of the old drivers out of the system first. It may take 3 or 4 cleanings. Make sure your power supply is top notch too. Bios settings is another thing. Video cards nowadays are more than stick it in the slot and play, there is some maintenece involved.
Unlocked and Overclocked
Pros: I have been running this 720 for almost a year. Running at 3.42ghz and 4 cores. Temps are very good, but I have a Scythe MUGEN-2 SCMG-2000 .
Overall Review: Listen up, this 720 X3 is fantastic, you never have to wait. It just fast. I am not going to tell you that it will be faster than a i7, because it's not. It is fast enough for anything except maybe CAD. Best CPU money can buy for the price.
Update 6 months
Pros: Unlocked 4th core. Runs at 3.225 ghz. Stock Voltage. Ran 4 hours Prime 0 errors. Max temp 27c. Air cooled with Scythe heat pipe 80mm heatsink. Absolutely Flawless CPU GIGABYTE GA-MA790GP-UD4H 4 gigs of G-Skill 1066
Cons: No Cons
Overall Review: Thanks AMD, this is a charm. I got the ATI 4870 too. Best setup I ever had. And I have had plenty of them too! I recommend this CPU highly.
Pros: Smooth driver install. Catalyst works great. FPS in COD4 are very good 125fps. Just a smooth running card. Can overclock to about 790 but dont really see any need. Probably the best bargain going right now. Only time fan makes any noise is on start up and it only last 2 seconds, other than that, no noise. But who cares.
Cons: Ahh, None
Overall Review: AMD X3 720, Gigabyte 790GX, 4 gig GSKILL, XP Home
