ASUS Rampage IV Black Edition LGA 2011 Intel X79 SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 Extended ATX Intel Motherboard
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 month to 1 year

Pros: It's a great motherboard. The BIOS is very in depth and straight forward to use. It looks sharp. 4 PCIe 3 slots. The wifi adapter it comes with is adequate. The construction quality of the board seems decent.

Cons: The price ( -1 egg). Customer support is useless and time consuming (-1 egg).

Also, the LEDs really irritate me. Some are necessary, some can be shut off, others are just unnecessary light that make it hard to put together a decent looking computer that isn't red and black (-1 egg).

Lastly, it has a bunch of nice features...that most people will ever notice.

Other Thoughts: If I could go back in time, I'm not sure I would undo this purchase....but I would definitely think a little harder about it.

EVGA 03G-P4-3784-KR G-SYNC Support GeForce GTX 780 3GB 384-Bit GDDR5 PCI Express 3.0 SLI Support Dual FTW w/ EVGA ACX Cooler Video Card
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 month to 1 year

Pros: Handles everything I ask it to. ACX cooler seems to be quiet compared to other cards I've had and cools effectively. EVGA customer support has been really fast with responses. I think it looks sharp, some disagree.

Cons: EVGA customer support has told myself and several others that their HydroCopper series of waterblocks are compatible with this card. This IS a custom PCB and you will NOT be able to use anything but universal waterblocks on it.

Also, I don't see a performance difference between a 780 and 770 that warrants the large price gap so keep that in mind (reason for 1 egg dock).

Other Thoughts: EVGA customer service responded very fast to our questions...but that doesn't much matter if they give us wrong information. However, I didn't dock another egg because we should have trusted our instincts instead of a stranger.

Cooler Master V1000 - 1000W Power Supply with Fully Modular Cables and 80 PLUS Gold Certification
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 month to 1 year

Pros: Price to Power ratio is decent. It's fully modular. Doesn't have a lot of fancy graphics or anything on the side that are gaudy. Seems very quiet.

Cons: It doesn't have as many plugs for components as many people expect out of a 1000W power supply.

Other Thoughts: I haven't REALLY tested it yet, but so far I'm satisfied. Only 4 egg review simply because it didn't pleasantly surprise me.
