5 out of 5 eggs Intel Core i7-5930K Haswell-E 6-Core 3.5 GHz LGA 2011-v3 06/24/2016

This review is from: Intel Core i7-5930K Haswell-E 6-Core 3.5 GHz LGA 2011-v3 140W BX80648I75930K Desktop Processor

Pros: Intel's got it going on. This processor is fast!
Discrete graphics necessary. (Could be a con for some).
40 PCI Express Lanes.
Runs real cool (Corsair 110i GT, IC Diamond T.I.M.).
Hyper Threading.
Virtualization Technology.
22nm Architecture.

Cons: Only con I can think of off the top of my head is if somebody talked you out of buying this processor.
Some might consider the requirement of discrete graphics a con. Not really a problem. Even a low end
current card does pretty well.

Other Thoughts: Got this chip teamed with ASUS X99-A/USB 3.1 mobo. All components are playing extremely well together.

Motorola MB7420 16x4 686 Mbps DOCSIS 3.0 Cable Modem Certified by Comcast XFINITY, Time Warner Cable, and Other Service Providers

Pros: Motorola.
16 download/4 upload channels.
Nice looking in gray and black ( a bit tall though).
Truly impressed by the speed boost both up and down.

Cons: The power cord is at the top of the unit. Should be at the bottom to keep a low wiring profile.

Other Thoughts: Swapped out my Surfboard 6121 for the MB7420. I pay for 100 down/10 up. According to "Speed Test" my ping is 35ms, Download speed 171.11 Mbps, Upload speed 11.86 Mbps. Works for me!
I have the MB7420 paired with an ASUS RT-AC68U dual band wireless router and they are playing well together.

5 out of 5 eggs Great Product: Corsair Hydro Series H110i GT High Performance Water / Liquid CPU Cooler 03/19/2016

This review is from: Corsair Hydro Series H110i GT High Performance Water / Liquid CPU Cooler

Pros: Nice cool temps.
Creates a clutter free look in the CPU area of the board as opposed to air cooling.
Keeps temps well below anything that air cooling can offer.
Link software is okay and essential if your wanting to color configure your L.E.D. logo lighting on the pump head.
Pump is quiet.

Cons: None

Other Thoughts: Been using Corsair cases, closed loop liquid coolers, and DVD drives for as long as I've been custom building computers for myself and clients and I personally cannot complain ... much.
However, this cooler will not fit flush to the top of the Corsair 650D case. The reason? The bottom of the housing for the hot-swappable SATA3 dock (external) prevents the radiator tank from being flush with the top of the case. Therefore, it must be mounted at an angle of about 5% toward the front of the case. It doesn't take away from the aesthetics since the windowed side panel covers it, and it works every bit as good as it would if it were flush.
