Pros: This laptop is incredibly powerful. Except for the MUCH more expensive Razer Blade, which is sold out in so many places, you cannot get a faster 14" Laptop.

14" is truly a size I've fallen in love with. Great for carrying in a backpack, but the screen doesn't feel *small* like a 13.3.

This laptop is overloaded with great features. It takes a few design ques from the Macbook Pro, but it is indeed it's own laptop. The two cooling ports are a great idea. It is aesthetically beautiful.

Almost all the laptop is Metal, and it is very light. It comes with a leather case even!

The Warranty is 2 full years.

They keyboard is even backlight, and great to type on.

Bloatware is minimal, and uninstalls painlessly. The Gigabyte update utility does a better job of getting you the latest laptop than anything I've seen from Asus, Acer, and MSI.

The 128GB mSata drive really does boost performance. You would not believe it's main storage *is* a 5400 RPM harddrive.

Cons: No Optical drive. I have noticed I don't really need one built in at all as of late, digital distribution really is here.

Fans can be loud.

May take a little tweaking to get the best battery life for light use.

Other Thoughts: I wonder how this would do with 16GB 2133mhz dual channel ram and a 1TB 840 EVO instead of the mSata and traditional hard drive. I imagine it would be a incredible experience for years to come, not that I have any doubts it will be the way it's shipped!

Cooler Master Hyper T4 - CPU Cooler with 4 Direct Contact Heatpipes
  • neweggOwned For: 1 day to 1 week

5 out of 5 eggs Pleasure to install 04/29/2014

This review is from: Cooler Master Hyper T4 - CPU Cooler with 4 Direct Contact Heatpipes

Pros: This is hands-down the easiest, most straight-forward, enjoyable install of a cooler for a intel CPU I have ever done. Well the stock one is easier, but you wouldn't be here if you wanted that!

Cons: None currently.

Other Thoughts: Unfortunately, my motherboard was in worse shape than I thought, so I cannot comment on the cooling performance. From what I understand, it's about equal to the 212 plus, with a evo having a clear edge.

Cooler Master Hyper N520 - CPU Cooler with Copper Base and 5 Heatpipes
  • neweggOwned For: 1 week to 1 month

3 out of 5 eggs A little loud, works pretty well 04/29/2014

This review is from: Cooler Master Hyper N520 - CPU Cooler with Copper Base and 5 Heatpipes

Pros: TWO fans! the entire bottom is flat copper, no aluminium between pipes, no gaps. I like that it's a bit shorter than some of the other cool master rifle coolers.

Cons: No PWM = always loud, somewhat of a disappointment.

Other Thoughts: Keep in mind copper is somewhat weak. IC 7 did scratch the bottom of the cooler a bit. I have to wonder if this is actually better than 1 good quality 120mm fan. Looking at CMs other offerings, I don't think so.
I'd recommend the TPC-612 over it for sure, ESPECIALLY with the current promo.
