Intel Core i7-4820K Ivy Bridge-E Quad-Core 3.7GHz (Turbo 3.9GHz) LGA 2011 130W Desktop Processor BX80633i74820K
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 month to 1 year

Pros: - Runs cool despite 130watt TDP
- Powerful (encoded a 320Kbps, 1 GB File Size song in 25 seconds)
- Awesome Overclocking ability

Cons: - None

Other Thoughts: This thing is a beast! I upgraded from a Core i5 2500 and this CPU blew my mind being able to handle anything I threw at it with ease. My example is in a game of Minecraft in an amplified world..... My old Core i5 2500 would get maxed out during normal gameplay and heat up ~65c where under the same conditions this CPU goes, "Haha That tickled" only needing 25% of its total processing power!! Now THAT IS AWESOME!
I can get with a Xigmatec Black Knight CPU Cooler and thermal grease I run temps around 35c idle to 50c max load! Yes 50c max load..... all cores clocked @ 4.1GHz
and oh I normally run this CPU at 4.1GHz BUT IT CAN DO SO MUCH MORE. I hate overclocking but its like a waste of cash not to overclock this beast! I got a stable 4.65GHz before needing to back off.
If you are on the line.... just buy this beast! You will NOT be sad at all!

Intel Elements

1 out of 5 eggs SO MAD 02/28/2014

This review is from: Intel Elements

Pros: .........

Cons: Contest or whatever this is ended 3 days after I got this as a combo deal with my processor?

Other Thoughts: I bought my processor on 2/6/2014 and got Intel Elements as a free bundle...... well come to find out Intel Elements ended on 2/3/2014!!!!!!!!! and this "product" is still listed as a free bundle deal!!!!
Newegg! Get it together! This was totally unfair to give my a expired promotion. Not Cool.

ASUS Xonar Essence STX Virtual 7.1 Channels 24-bit 192KHz PCI Express x1 Interface 124 dB SNR / Headphone AMP Card
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 week to 1 month

Pros: -Amazing Sound Quality on my Bose AE2
-Easy Software to use
-Stable Sound Card/Drivers

Cons: -No immediate Cons *See other Thoughts*

Other Thoughts: I was a bit undecided on this card because of its age but then realized the rest of the sound card market is like that. A awesome review from LinusTechTips pushed me to buy and I am not regretting it AT ALL!

My Bose AE2 Headphones have never sounded this amazing when playing music on this card. Its like listening to heaven the sound is that pure! I upgraded from a Asus Xonar DX and it is worth every penny!
Make sure to download the latest drivers from Asus tho otherwise the old drivers are a complete pain.
Also, do not expect to hear good quality out of cheap $30 headphones. To experience the full benefits of this card you need excellent headphones as well.

However, out of the box this card does sound flat and blah. You will need to do some configuring in the software and EQ settings. Make sure to know the impedance of your headphones and adjust the software to match. Also make sure that your PSU has at least one molex power(4 pin) connector as this card requires it and Asus does not provide a converter.

If you are on the edge about this card...... I say buy it. Asus has an top tier product that you will not regret and if something does go wrong (which will happen once in awhile in this industry) Asus's tech support has not failed me once!

Thank you Asus once again for another awesome product! Cheers!
