Took a few tries to boot BIOS

MSI PRO B450M PRO-M2 MAX AM4 AMD B450 SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 Micro ATX AMD Motherboard
MSI PRO B450M PRO-M2 MAX AM4 AMD B450 SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 Micro ATX AMD Motherboard

Pros: Easy to set up. Took a few tries for it to boot with my Ryzen 7 3700RX CPU but after disconnecting everything and reconnecting everything it booted to BIOS. We updated bios and it works now without any issues!

Cons: The fact that it took more than a 10 boots for it to even display anything and get into BIOS is just ridiculous! But once updated with the latest bios, it worked fine. Just really slow boot up the first few boots. It does not come with the latest bios so you should update!

Overall Review: I would recommend this to others if they are looking for a low budget MB.

Great product for price

XPG GAMMIX D30 16GB (2 x 8GB) DDR4 3000 (PC4 24000) Intel XMP 2.0 Desktop Memory Model AX4U300038G16A-DB30
XPG GAMMIX D30 16GB (2 x 8GB) DDR4 3000 (PC4 24000) Intel XMP 2.0 Desktop Memory Model AX4U300038G16A-DB30

Pros: Easy to install, no glowy lights (a pro for me) 16gb as advertised

Cons: Speed is not recognized at the advertised speed without going into BIOS and overclocking it (which I guess it's a good thing if you don't want to overclock it making this last longer).

Overall Review: I have a "Ryzen 7 3700X" CPU with an "MSI PRO B450M PRO-M2 MAX AM4 AMD B450 SATA 6Gb/s Micro ATX AMD" Motherboard. This works great and no issues whatsover :) Will be hoping to upgrade to the 32GB (2x16gb) down the line!

For the price, worth it

Pros: Great price, good quality on the tempered glass, and metal quality is alright as well! Love the easy magnetic mesh to clean up any dust/fluff that gets stuck on there! I also love that I can see all my glowy components on the side window! No issues with the case getting hot whatsoever. I have 3 RGB corsair fans (120mm) and the two that came with the case (one in the back I left as is, moved the one from the front to the top back, although that one I currently have it turned off since I do need more extenders or w/e to connect it). The Headphone jack is a 3 ring which is great so I can use my phone headphones or my gaming headset that has a 3-ring plug! Reset button in the front as well and 2x 3.0 USB ports in the front makes it super convenient for me! The power light isn't super bright (a blue soft light in the top right corner behind the black front metal mesh) which is great since it doesn't take away from the RGB fans I put in and it's not shining up to my face like other PCs in the past!

Cons: Fans that are included are okay. They aren't the best quality, but they do what they need to do. The screws for mounting more fans aren't that great though (they got all worn out just setting my fans up in the case). I had to take out the metal case that holds the two extra HDD/SDD on the bottom in order to fit in all 3 of my fans in the front, but I made it work so that's all that matters! The battery sits on the bottom back of the case, and if you don't have it somewhat elevated off the floor, that may be an issue. Just don't place it on carpet, I have my case on an elevated metal grid platform that's attached to and below my desk. It has 4 legs on the bottom but it only gives a few inches of space for air to flow, which is not bad if on a flat, smooth surface that is not heat conducive. The case is a tad heavy for me to lift and put it at my desk with my back issues, but I have my husband to do that for me. If you are not able-bodied and live alone, I would probably not recommend it, but I don't really move it unless I'm adding more components or attaching things in the back and that's usually once and then I don't touch it for a long time, so I don't see this as a big issue, just a precaution for those who do live alone or have no means of asking someone for help!

Overall Review: I would definitely recommend this to others if they are building a case for the first time, since for the price and the quality it's not that bad. I can see this case lasting me at least 5-7 years maybe more since I take good care of my electronics. There is plenty of space if i want to add water cooling to the top, but the way that this case is built, I really don't see a reason to add it because it does not get hot at all! I love the look! Sleek, very clean, and the metal mesh in the front looks super cool with my rgb fans glowing through! Worth it for my first ever build :)

Works great!

Overall Review: Had no issues setting this up, super easy, and the cooling fan that comes with it has RGB lighting! Love it! Works great and have no issues running my games (FFXIV shadowbringers, sims 4, and DA:Inquisition) on highest settings!
