Decent performance for a decent price
Pros: Good price Looks good enough fan headers Two M.2 slots Four DIMM slots (though im not crediting ASRock for that) Passively cooled VRMs and chipset
Cons: It's only (I believe) a 2+2 phase motherboard Rear I/O is a bit lacking The Bios, while robust, is lacking some features that dissapointed me a bit
Overall Review: If you arent looking to overclock or drop a ryzen 9 5950x into this then it's a reasonable board, make sure it's a good price first. If you are looking to overclock (as i was) then you will be dissapointed. I was able to get my ryzen 7 2700 to 4.05GHz all core, which is not bad, but I was hoping for more control than the bios allowed. Some b450, b550 and most x470, and x570 motherboards have certain features (that you can find out more somewhere else) that i was hoping for. I came from an old X58 system to this and while that was a huge jump, I was expecting somewhat similar overclocking potential from this.
It's a cheap SSD with DRAM
Pros: It's cheap It has DRAM comes with a SATA cable
Cons: It's got a pretty cheap build only 240gb It isn't the fastest SSD out there but miles ahead of any HDD
Overall Review: If its replacing a HDD any ssd will be noticably better. This one was a pretty good price when i got it
A very good looking case!
Pros: Glass front and side panels Good enough front, top and bottom airflow comes with rear fan Big enough to fit any proper ATX motherboard Can fit radiators, but i never tried that
Cons: Actually a bit bigger than i though it was Could have slightly better airflow
Overall Review: If you are planning to use RGB lighting then it will look good in this case, it also often goes on sale or gets bundled with RGB fans. Be mindful that this might not fit where you are planning to fit your computer
It's a GT730 oooohh... wow thats awesome? Wait isn't it?
Pros: Gives more display outs Allows games like Minecraft and Terraria to be played Actively cooled
Cons: Old Low performance It's really not intended for gaming regardless of what the shroud might suggest it's a full height card It needs the fan otherwise it will overheat It only allows for three more displays, four if you split the DVI into two VGA
Overall Review: Only buy if you need more displays not more computing power, if it will fit in your case, and if you only need it for general web browsing and maybe the odd indie or other light game. Not recommended - Buy a gtx 1050ti or a gtx 1650 LP for a low profile but powerfull enough GPU, or a gtx 1050 for a very budget oriented card that can play games at low settings
