Assembly

No Assembly– You get to build the system yourself. We will ship all the components you select below as a single order, but they will be packaged individually and arrive unassembled. If you are interested in having Newegg assemble a pre-configured system for you, we suggest viewing a different configurable system that allows the option for Newegg Assembly.

5 out of 5 eggsReview after 1 week of use

Pros: -Assembly was decently easy for a first timer (I have upgraded computers in the past, but never done a full system build until now)
-The 5960 X processor is a beast. Running games on full graphics settings without overclocking and it's only using 4-6% of the processing capacity!
-MSI Gaming 9 ACK motherboard looks great, and I have had no problems aside from 1: See Cons.
-Corsair's RAM works great as far as I can tell. Most programs/games don't use more than ~8% if available memory.
-The 512 Mushkin SSD works, so far very reliable and stable. Haven't seen any crashes or data loss from it.

Cons: -Using the OC Genie to overclock caused me to have frequent crashes/BSOD's. Turned off the overclocking and haven't had any problems since, and I personally really don't need to overclock anyhow, so it's kind of a non-issue. I might try playing with the settings to overclock the processor and not the RAM (OC Genie overclocks both by default) to see if that solves the instability problem, but on the other hand I may just leave it be because even properly cooled, overclocking still shortens the lifespan of the components.

Other Thoughts: My bundle is:
-Intel Core i7 5960 X processor
-MSI Gaming 9 ACK motherboard
-64 GB Corsair RAM (4 X 16GB)
-512 GB Mushkin SSD
This setup is MONSTER. I also have the EVGA GeForce GTX 980 Ti (2X SLI) graphics card, and it is so fast, so powerful, it's indescribable. Games look beautiful, frame rates are high with no hiccups, the internet pours in fast, videos stream instantly, this system does everything I hoped for and more with ease and SO much more power to spare.
