GIGABYTE GA-Z97X-UD3H (rev. 1.2) LGA 1150 Intel Z97 HDMI SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 ATX Intel Motherboard
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: more than 1 year

Pros: Accepts Haswell & refresh & some Broadwell cpus . Like the gold accents .

Cons: None

Other Thoughts: I just upgraded the cpu on it from an i5 4670K to a i7 4760K . Make sure you have the latest bios (A9 right now) before you upgrade . The A6 bios will not support the refresh (learned the hard way) . Tried the o/c feature in the bios on the i5 , it will overvolt your cpu . Don't use it .

Intel Core i7-4790K Devil's Canyon Quad-Core 4.0 GHz LGA 1150 BX80646I74790K Desktop Processor Intel HD Graphics 4600
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: less than 1 day

Pros: Fits current motherboard , big upgrade from 4570k .

Cons: None , except for UPS "forgetting" to deliver it last week .

Other Thoughts: First off , make sure you have the latest bios installed . Don't believe anything otherwise Gigabyte stated F6 bios will work - wrong ! Would not post at all , no video , just beeps & reboots over again . Could not flash via usb either .had to reinstall i5 , flash bios to F9 & reinstall i7 . Booted fine then . Should of had it on Friday , but UPS forgot to load it on truck for final delivery . Not Newegg's fault .

Cooler Master Hyper T2 - Compact CPU Cooler with Dual Looped Direct Contact Heatpipes
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: 1 month to 1 year

Pros: Has a fan ?

Cons: Allows cpu to get too hot . Loud fan on max .

Other Thoughts: Been in my system a month now . processor is running too warm for my taste . Before I reverted back to stock I had the cpu @ 3.4 ghz , it would hit 62C just watching a YouTube video . The old Corsair H50 that was in it cooled better ! After removing o/c & reapplying thermal paste it still gets too warm under load of a video . Be wary of this one . Oh , tech support is unresponsive about issue too .
