Most Favorable Review

Very capable MB for the money

ASRock B450M PRO4 R2.0 AM4 AMD Promontory B450 SATA 6Gb/s Micro ATX AMD Motherboard
ASRock B450M PRO4 R2.0 AM4 AMD Promontory B450 SATA 6Gb/s Micro ATX AMD Motherboard

Pros: Has practically all of the features you would want. All in all a solid contender at this price point.

Cons: Wish it had indicator LED's to let you know what might be erroring when there are boot issues. I also wish there were better utilities for it for fan management and overclocking.

Overall Review: I would definitely recommend this to others. In fact this is my third one.

Most Critical Review

Windows 7 users will be out of luck with this

ASUS Prime B350M-E AM4 AMD B350 SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.1 HDMI Micro ATX AMD Motherboard
ASUS Prime B350M-E AM4 AMD B350 SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.1 HDMI Micro ATX AMD Motherboard

Pros: Worked fine with Ryzen 3 2200g. Bios update went smoothly. Seems fast and capable so far when running Windows 10. Pretty decent for the price.

Cons: Windows 7 CANNOT be installed with this configuration of processor/motherboard. Asus support through in the towel after a day. Board has only ONE chassis fan header. If you have more than one fan you'll need a Y-connector.

Overall Review: I cannot recommend this to anyone wishing to move to a new system but keep Windows 7. Ironically, I built a system using the Asus Prime X470 Pro with a Ryzen 7 2700x and even with some issues with usb mice during install I was able to get Win 7 going. If you're intending to install Win 10 then this thing is a dream so far.

Better than anticipated

Pros: Seems to work as advertised. Great value.

Cons: None so far

Overall Review: Got these on sale but I think they are worth it even if not. I have never had a true 'active noise cancellation" headset because they tend to cost $100+. So, we didn't have anything to compare them to, but the wife wanted something that would cancel out the sound of the lawn mower while cutting grass. For this purpose, they work just fine for her. The sound does change a bit depending on the whether the cancel function is on or off, but this didn't change our opinion of this one way or another.

No need to be skeptical. This is a very good SSD.

Pros: Works fast and has good cost per TB. When I build, I typically use a smaller 'boot' drive and a separate SSD/HDD for data storage but didn't feel I needed to with this. I did install this with a third-party heat sink mainly because this was going to be the only drive in the system and didn't want premature failures or slowdowns. Probably overkill but the temps do stay way, way down.

Cons: No complaints whatsoever.

Overall Review: Definitely would recommend and I think I'm going to buy again on my next build.

Just gorgeous!

Pros: Very easy to build in. Looks great. Built in RGB works nicely even with non-Phanteks fans. Great value.

Cons: Wish there was an HDD led but not a deal breaker. Just added one on my own.

Overall Review: I would definitely recommend this case to anyone.

Another Great Ryzen

AMD Ryzen 7 5800X - Ryzen 7 5000 Series Vermeer (Zen 3) 8-Core 3.8 GHz Socket AM4 105W Desktop Processor - 100-100000063WOF

Pros: Fast Fast Did I say fast?

Cons: None

Overall Review: Would absolutely recommend. Was used to replace a Ryzen 5 5600x which shouldn't be all that much more powerful, but it seems to be.

Slow, slow, slow delivery

Took over two weeks to get from California to Indiana. Probably not the fault of the seller being domiciled in hell California except for choosing FedEx as the shipping agent.
