Intel Core i7-4790K Haswell Quad-Core 4.0GHz LGA 1150 Desktop Processor BX80646I74790K
  • Owned For: 1 day to 1 week

Pros: Performs well. I bought the Haswell to replace an 8350 AMD unit because I have always had good experiences with Intel products.This was a little different however. I used a good ASUS z97-AR board, 1866 memory, and a cooler master hyper 22 cooler and while it runs a lot cooler thant the AMD unit ran, I have yet to notice ungodly real world performance gains. Maybe it was wishful thinking on my part. The WEI score that went up was the 'calculations per second' to a 7.9, my cpu stayed at a 7.8. I have yet to over clock this beast giving it time to break in, The AMD would not overclock with its Gigabyte board period, so I ran it stock using it to play some games like Crysis, etc, which it did quite admirably, and research.

Cons: While there are o real cons, if I had to do it over again I would not have spent the 300 bucks on a new processor and the extra bucks on a new board as the performance gains are just not worth it. However as I say, I have not over clocked the machine, so I don't know how it will respond to O.C.efforts

Other Thoughts: Just wanted to get this out. In my experience both the AMD and the Haswell as so close in stock performance as to be negligible. The AMD is lots cheaper, runs hotter, but is very stable and robust. Sounds like I am a fan of AMD products, I am not, I just try to be objective about a thing. My preference is for an Intel based system, however their processors took a nosedive when Intel changed manufacturing processes a few generations back. The last good processor put out by Intel affordable by the masses was the i2700k. Now the price of those run as high as $460.00 - ridiculous, but so goes the market.

Corsair Carbide Series 200R Black Steel / Plastic compact ATX Mid Tower Case

  • Owned For: 1 day to 1 week

4 out of 5 eggs excellent cae, abysmal shipping 12/29/2014

This review is from: Corsair Carbide Series 200R Black Steel / Plastic compact ATX Mid Tower Case

Pros: Corsair quality. This is my third build with this excellent case known for its above average and able layout and airflow and capacity for accommodating large AGU cards. What I have a problem with is New Egg's shipping. I signed on for expedited shipping leaving plenty of time for the holidays. the shipping label was correct but still the D*** at UPS sent across town to another zip code in spite of having the right one on the friggin box!!!

Cons: Poor shipping performance cost me an hour in the freezing cold outside a strangers house waiting to see if they had my friggin box. Thank fully they did and were most kind in a tongue in cheek kind of manner. Get a grip New Egg and UPS or hire someone who has one on board.

Other Thoughts: No complaints whatsoever about the case however. It is well laid out, lots of room, thoughtfully designed, and I take issue with those who state that the case is "cheaply" made. I do not find it so at all. For a budget case this is the way to go!!!! The worksmanship is first rate...

Rosewill 120mm Computer Case Fan (Case Cooling Fan) - Hydro Dynamic Bearing, Silent Fan, 2 Rotation Speed with PWM Control; ROCF-11004
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 day to 1 week

Pros: Great design on paper, sturdy build, easy install with non-furnished fan screws, 4 pin connector. Had to install with 3 pin extension (see below) then they ran well and quietly.

Cons: Would not start with 4pin fan terminal on Gigabyte 990FXA UD3 AM3+ mobo. Used a 3 pin connector/extension to install; be sure you have one available in case your fan won't start.

Other Thoughts: Great fan if you get past the expectation that it will run off stock motherboard current with factory connections. They are truly silent. Used screws instead of supplied rubber mounting attachments for a simple swap.
