Pros: It works?

Quality board

MSI PERFORMANCE GAMING B360M GAMING PLUS LGA 1151 (300 Series) Intel B360 HDMI SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.1 Micro ATX Intel Motherboard

Pros: Everything I needed on a beautiful red/black mobo. Not to big, not to small. Works with coffee lake. MSI quality. M.2.

Cons: Only 2 dimms. Not a big deal for me. Everyone's running 2x8g memory these days anyway, right?

Overall Review: Good board. Good price. If you're building a coffee lake rig on a budget I'd highly recommend.

Good. Not great.

Pros: Looks nice. Matches my red/black theme. Cools a little bit better than stock. Quiet. Price.

Cons: By cools a little bit better. I mean... a LITTLE bit... Did I mention it looks nice?

Overall Review: Don't you dare overclock anything under this. But for aesthetics sake it's a lot nicer than most stock coolers. Keeps my i5-8500 under control.

So good. So, so good.

Pros: Quiet fans. Great price. Only requires an 8 pin. Runs everything at 1080p/Ultra at 60+ fps. Overclocked mine to 1450mhz no problem. Well built. Very sturdy. Just quality design all around. It looks cool, lol. Red/Black themed builders eat your heart out.

Cons: None.

Overall Review: If you game at 1080p, here's your card. Ultra. 60fps. Happy Birthday.

Excellent CPU

Intel Core i5 8th Gen - Core i5-8500 Coffee Lake 6-Core 3.0 GHz (4.1 GHz Turbo) LGA 1151 (300 Series) 65W BX80684I58500 Desktop Processor Intel UHD Graphics 630

Pros: FAST 6 cores Reasonably priced. Handles all the latest games, even core hungry Ubisoft titles.

Cons: Runs a bit hot. The stock cooler is pretty wimpy. I'd recommend upgrading.

Overall Review: Brilliant cpu for anyone who isn't worried about overclocking. It comes with a very respectable clock speed already. But at just 200mhz higher than the 8400, the difference in real world performance is a wash. Maybe save a few bucks and get the 8400. Unless you're like me, and just HAD to have that 3.0ghz base :)
