Video Card

Great Graphics card overall. I purchased when it was first released and expected it to become sub-par GPU within a few years. Four years later and there has not been a single game that I have attempted to play that this card doesn't handle like a BOSS. For a "mid-range" card, the ASUS GeForce GTX 1060 6GB Turbo by far exceeded my expectations. Only thing that I wish: When I first bought it, it came with an app that allowed me to change the lighting modes.(Ex. Pulse, Brightness, Strobe) As of recently this application has been removed and you cannot find it anywhere online. I wish it would return.

Case

Absolutely beautiful mid-size case. Currently have six fans equipped with a 240mm radiator on the front but room to have it on the top. Rubber grommets allow discrete cable management. The magnetic dust filters you find on the front and top definitely keep your PC nice and clean with easy cleaning. Tempered glass gives this beautiful case a nice sleek touch. Only thing I don't like: The tempered glass is held on with four screws that require an Allen key. The rubber washers that are used to protect the glass from making contact with the screws and case fall very easily when not tightened down. In fact lost one the very first time I went to go put my PC together.

Ooooh, I always like seeing another 3570k! The mis-matched RAM is a bit odd but they're the same speed, at least.

The blue fans and heat sinks look amazing together.

It's a nicer build in person, pictures don't serve it justice. 10/10 would recommend with maybe an update on i5 to i7 or i9 with a newer motherboard.

What do you think of the RGB ram heatsinks? Are they actually addressable? If so, should I get them?

They are addressable. They have a plug to plug into rgb heads on your motherboard however my motherboard does not have rgb heads so I just use the remote to change color. The remote has 50+ modes and colors. I'm yet to find all the modes. I recommend getting them if you're looking for a cheap way to make your RAM RGB.

Awesome! Does the remote come separately?

Nope! The pack I got for $22-$23, it came with the cables to connect to RGB headers, an adapter to connect those headers to a power source (in the case I didn't have RGB heads) and a remote that has no problem working through my PC case! I highly recommend these heatsinks to make your RAM more colorful
