Intel Core i5-4690K Devil's Canyon Quad-Core 3.5GHz LGA 1150 BX80646I54690K Desktop Processor Intel HD Graphics 4600
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 week to 1 month

Pros: While a bit pricier than some AMD offerings, this processor is a champ with gaming and single tasks. Best bang for the buck on a number of review sites, and probably one of the best CPUs I've owned in a while.

Plus, bonus, I can overclock when I start feeling lack of power for only a few dollars over the non-K version of the same processor.

Cons: I can't really think of any. It's a processor, and it does its job well. I might have gone a different direction with video editing or other tasks, but this CPU is pretty champ for gaming, web browsing, some minor multi-tasking.

Other Thoughts: None really.

HyperX Fury White Series 8GB (2 x 4GB) 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM DDR3 1866 Desktop Memory Model HX318C10FWK2/8
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 week to 1 month

Pros: * It's memory
* Low profile heat spreaders
* Nice black PCB on the memory, with a white heatsink cover.
* Goes well with my black and white build.
* Mobo immediately detected speed and adjusted the overclock for 1866.

Cons: Very, very slightly pricier than standard memory, but worth the couple of bucks difference.

Other Thoughts: It's RAM. It works, nicely, and has a unique appearance. Not insanely over priced, and... well, not much else to say about RAM.

I'm using this with an Intel 4690K and MSI Krait Edition LGA 1150 Motherboard.

ARCTIC Alpine 11 Plus CPU Cooler - Intel, Supports Multiple Sockets, 92mm PWM Fan at 23dBA

4 out of 5 eggs It's better than a stock cooler, and quiet. 04/09/2015

This review is from: ARCTIC Alpine 11 Plus CPU Cooler - Intel, Supports Multiple Sockets, 92mm PWM Fan at 23dBA

Pros: * Quiet even under load
* Cheap
* Better than the stock cooler

Cons: * Doesn't lower temps from stock, but will keep them in an okay range under normal or slightly OC'd load.
* I'm used to some film over the thermal paste, or applying paste myself - but once out of the plastic, paste is right on the bottom of the cooler.

Other Thoughts: I bought this as I dislike Intel stock coolers - they are noisy, mostly cheap plastic, and the push-pins are a pain to get into the mother board. You feel like you're going to crack the mother board with that junk.

This cooler has a good weight to it, mostly metal, the fan is nice and quiet. Had to check that it was working a few times, because I couldn't hear the darn thing.

It will keep the CPU cooler than stock, but don't look to do more than a minor overclock with this cooler. Go for something a bit more expensive if that's in your immediate plan.

I plan on upgrading to a liquid cooler later, so I got this for the price of a Starbucks froo-froo coffee. The installation pins were easy to get in, and had screws to attach the frame to the main board. Took perhaps 2 minutes to install.

When removing it from the plastic shell, be careful - the paste is already applied and has no cover film, so I smudged it and had to re-apply aftermarket thermal paste.

I'm using this with an Intel 4690K and MSI Krait Edition LGA 1150 Motherboard. Unless you're installing it into a shoebox, this cooler will fit with no clipping on the RAM slots or anything else - it is slightly bigger square than stock, and perhaps an inch or so higher.
