ASUS Z97-PRO LGA 1150 Intel Z97 HDMI SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 ATX Intel Motherboard
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 week to 1 month

Pros: I can't begin to tell you how disappointed I am with this motherboard. With a core i7-4790K (4GHz) chip installed, I'm getting about a 3% performance bump over 3770K chip on a P8Z68-V Pro/Gen3 board. I suspect ASUS is so concerned about the power its consuming, it may be throttling back even though my program is single threaded and not causing a heat problem.

Cons: This board is a huge disappointment.

Other Thoughts: I shouldn't have to overclock to get 4GHz performance from this chip.

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

Pros: It works. All comparisons below are standard installs - NO overclocking.

Cons: I can't begin to tell you how disappointed I am in this chip. Two years ago, I got a 13% improvement in the 3770K over my previous 2700K - both 3.5GHz. When I moved "up" to the 4790K (4.0 GHz), I was fully expecting another 13% bump. Instead I got a 3% bump and some math functions (Eratosthenes sieve) are actually 12% slower!!

Other Thoughts: So I suspect Intel mislabeled the chip and/or they are trying to mislead us as to its actual speed. I also have access to a 4771 - which is about 1 - 2% slower than the 3770K.

ORICO DCAP-5S-BK 5V/8A/40W 5-Port USB Smart Charging Station with Intelligent Charging IC for iPhone 6 5s 5c; iPad; Galaxy S5 S4; Note 3 2; HTC One; and most USB-Charged devices
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 month to 1 year

Pros: I like this charger so much, I am going to design and build a charging station around it. A small surge protector, plus two of these (just ordered a second). Maybe it will all fit in an old brief case?

3 ports charge 5V at 1 amp - plenty for phones and small devices, 2 ports can charge at 2+ amps - needed for both my Nook HD and Nexus.

The fact that it doesn't have a separate power supply (brick) is a real bonus, and it uses a standard 2-prong mini electric plug. Since I have a 120v outlet in the truck, I'll get one for it also!

Cons: None
