First of a two part review 06/24/2014
I am an eggspert reviewer
It comes in a nice box complete with a handle has a good look to it.
It has a very sturdy thick pcb board.
Has lots of quality caps.
None since this is the first part of the review and testing it has not started yet.
This is the reason for a 5 star review. the second part is the more accurate reivew I hope to have done it by the 1st of july
I plan to use an intel 4790 i7 cpu.
I will test it with an hd7970 gpu
I will test it with a pair of r280x visiontec cards
I will test it with an asus r290 card.
this will use a 1tb samsung ssd as the only drive
it will use mushkin silverline 8gb sticks of ram
and I have a pair of 4gb gamer sticks that I reviewed a while ago they failed to work in 3 different z87 boards maybe they work here.
I will put all of this into a fractal design 4 midsize case.
I will use a fractal 1000 watt platinum psu to power this.
I will use a decent usb dac and attempt to decide if I like the sound.
I will use an asus dvd player to load software and play some cd's dvds etc.
I will also use a new windows 7 ultimate os which arrives tomorrow.
Every once in a while I make a build that is to game and do htpc.
This has that goal in mind.
