DEEPCOOL Gamer Storm CAPTAIN 240 CPU Liquid Cooler AIO Water Cooling Ceramic Bearing Pump Visual Liquid Flow with Dual 120mm FDB PWM Fan Rubber Coating Deep Silent Support LGA 2011-v3
  • eggxpert iconEggXpert

Pros: I like what they are doing with this cooler. it has a lot of really cool features others do not and some cool tech under its hood. first off the radiator is a basic standard 240mm radiator nothing new there but it is quality built. the cool stuff is in the pump and plate and also the fans. in this all in one the plate and the pump are separated the plate is up against the cpu ofcourse but the pump is at the top of housing and they are connected but the clear tube. so the tube isn't just for asthetic's . it also has L.E.D lighting where the tube come's out at the top. the pump is powered off of the motherboard and not off of the powersupply. it comes with a pwm fan hub with up to four pwm fans great for a push pull setup , also include's double sided sticky tape so you can put the hub any where in your case you would like. it has brackets to fit all modern cpu's AMD and intel...including the newest socket 1151from intel. the fans look and feel high quality and also come with a feature for the first time I'm aware of the blades of the fan remove by popping them off for easy cleaning. I had no issue installing the plate to my cpu it was very easy to install overall ...I have the newest 1151 socket of which not all coolers support yet but this one does. and last but not least it comes with one of the coolest case badge's I've seen to date, its an actuall metal plate which I wish more company's would start doing we still love the case badge's just not cheap one's...lol

Cons: the first thing I found I didn't like is the tubing, its small and made of cheap plastic and just like the original h100's I think they should have used a thicker clear tubing and it would have made a big difference. they should also sell other versions with rgb led lighting and different color liquid like blue and green and not just red my system is lit up in blue and the red looks off

Other Thoughts: as far as all in one's go it has some features to set it apart it has a few that help its performance but a few that may hinder it's performance so. it doesn't perform better or worse than any of the others

Linksys EA7500 Max-Stream AC1900 MU-MIMO Gigabit Router
  • eggxpert iconEggXpert

5 out of 5 eggs extremely easy to setup and configure 02/13/2016

This review is from: Linksys EA7500 Max-Stream AC1900 MU-MIMO Gigabit Router

Pros: first off this thing is pretty big in size with excellent build quality, the three antenna's are long and thick. the body is well ventilated to disperse heat. the set up was the easiest I've ever had, once I connected the router and powered it on it prompted me onscreen to configure the new network I created a smart Wi-Fi account and it brought up the configuration app on its own I put in my wifi passwords and setup a guest wifi and hit apply and I was done and up and running again. here are some of the specs I thought were great

easy setup, also you can download the app to configure from your ios or android phone

the MU-MIMO stand for multi user you can have up to 12 devices hooked up per band 2.4ghz or 5.0ghz

600 mgbt thru the 2.4 ghz and 1300 mgbt thru the 5.0 ghz simultaniuosly

1.4 mghz dual core processor

usb 2.0 and 3.0 inputs for a network attached storage

802.11 a/b/g/n/ac standards

and up to 128 bit encryption

beamforming

I was using an old asus n router in my game room that was bridged to a nighthawk router and I like this one and think the quality and how I functions is so good I replace that asus with this one I would definetly get this router again

Cons: the only con I can think of is all the led's are on the back except for the Linksys log on top so when you first start it up all the lights go off for like 30 seconds and I thought it wasn't working till it finally lit back up I wish they would have put a better indicator led on front to show its at least getting power while its rebooting but this is not a reason to take an egg away or anything just personal preference

Other Thoughts: Newegg as usual had superior service and quick delivery I always prefer to buy my tech from newegg over the other places
I was concerned about getting a Linksys in the beginning because I know the quality was really good back in the day and then I hadn't about them quality wise in awhile but I'm here to say this product is a great one I am very happy with it

GIGABYTE GA-Z170X-Gaming 6 (rev. 1.0) LGA 1151 Intel Z170 HDMI SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.1 USB 3.0 ATX Intel Motherboard
  • eggxpert iconEggXpert

Pros: this motherboard is absolutely beautiful and powerful. to be honest I usually use asus motherboards but I got this one and I think it great...I'm pretty set in my ways when it comes to motherboard manufacturers and components in general. but I'm not so set in my ways that I don't recognize a quality component when I see one, there are so many things on this board. I didn't think I would switch to ddr4 so soon but it works great i got this board and some 16 gb's ddr4 3200 mghz ram i bought an intel I5 6600k and a new gigabyte nividia gtx 970 g1 to match the board and this board installed easy and flawlessly as well as all the components. i swapped an amd rig to this intel so i already had the my ssd with os installed and case and power supply. but i was like a kid in a candy store, this board has the 2 m.2 slots i look forward to using once i get a couple M.2 ssd's to put on it. it also has the new usb 3.1 type c connector, 3 way sli, z170x chipset, gold plated audio connectors all the way around, my h100i fit great and this thing stays real cool. i am really happy i made the switch when i did, if your an intel guy or think you may want a new cpu i totally recommend this board and the asthetics are amazing it looks so good in my gaming rig all lit up and they do a great job of covering up the ugly parts of most boards and this thing just looks great

Cons: i can only think of one thing i wish was different about the board i wish ther were 2 x16 lanes for sli as it stands it goes x16,x8,x4 and i know the board could handle it, but i guess if you want that feature you have to buy the next one up

Other Thoughts: i have been an amd guy for a long time but with their lack of advancement for awhile now , i decided to switch to intel and this board made it pretty easy and I'm glad i did
