Pros: Overclocked like a boss. 4.8ghz under a Phanteks PH-TC14PE.
Super fast CPU.
40 PCI-E gen 3 lanes vs only 28 lanes of the 5820K.
Scored a 1409 in cinebench R15
Cons: This isnt really a con since I knew it coming in to it, but I really with they'd start putting integrated graphics on these chips. It cant hurt to have it and the newer haswell and skylake igpus actually have pretty good power when paired with fast RAM.
Other Thoughts: Runs a little on the warm side at 4.8ghz, but that's to be expected of a hex-core CPU. Worth the money for the extra lanes for enthusiasts that want to run three or more graphics cards. and still have lanes left for a PCI-E based M.2 SSD. *waves hand*READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: -Runs quieter than my old Sapphire R9 290 Tri-X
-Uses less power than the 290 Tri-X
-Sexy as hell
-Fast as hell
-Perfectly playable framerates at near ultra settings at 4K resolution
-HBM is stupid fast
Cons: -Only 4GB of VRAM
-A little on the large side, dont buy if you've got a tiny case
-Voltage is locked....Not very happy about that for a flagship card.
-HBM only overclocks a little bit, but hey, it overclocks. Was able to get 580mhz out of it, still much faster than any other VRAM out there
Other Thoughts: Overall i'm very happy with this product, aside from the minor gripes I put in the cons. I want to get another for crossfire because according to many benchmarks, two of these in crossfire are faster than two 980ti's in SLI.READ FULL REVIEW
This review is from: SAMSUNG SM951 M.2 256GB Internal Solid State Drive (SSD)
Pros: Blazing fast...in the right motherboard.
Cons: Cant get windows to boot on it to save my life.
Other Thoughts: Running a Gigabyte X99 SOC FORCE and i7 5930K with dedicated M.2 port that claims 20Gb/s written right on the board. Still only reads at about 1650 and writes at about 1200. You'd think a $340 motherboard wouldnt have any problems with this drive. Dont do what I did. Do a LOT of research, not just some. As of now i'm gonna keep this thing and just make it a dedicated game drive.READ FULL REVIEW
