ASUS Z87-PRO (V EDITION) LGA 1150 Intel Z87 HDMI SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 ATX Intel Motherboard
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: 1 day to 1 week

Pros: Really easy to install - large board made everything easy to wire and route for cable management.
Easy to access bio with user friendly features, makes system optimization easy to perform.
Stable with my Vengence Ram (8GB going to 16GB soon)
Accepted the GTX 770 well with minimal crowding and easy to keep everything cool.

Cons: no built in wifi - I knew this going into the build though so no big but I guess the only con I can tell from here

GIGABYTE GV-N770OC-2GD G-SYNC Support GeForce GTX 770 2GB 256-Bit GDDR5 PCI Express 3.0 HDCP Ready WindForce 3X 450W Video Card
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: 1 day to 1 week

Pros: Handles almost anything that's graphically intense and doesn't care.

Cons: 3 fans can kind of drone up when running anything visually intense, programs like BF & Assassin's Creed or even just starcraft get the 3 fans flying up. This is in ambient temps of about 69*F. I haven't measured the temp of the card with an IR thermometer but the fans make it sound like it's ready for flight. (Mounted in a NZXT phantom case, so I imagine it has plenty of realestate for cooling and isn't being choked off).

Intel Core i7-4770K Haswell Quad-Core 3.5 GHz LGA 1150 84W BX80646I74770K Desktop Processor Intel HD Graphics
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: 1 day to 1 week

Pros: Easy to install, CRAZY improvement from my QX6850 that I loved for a few years. Handles anything I throw at it and doesn't care. Most all of my games run at full settings now and maintain a 60+FPS.

Cons: runs a touch hot... using the stock heater it's hanging around 60*C at idle.... yes I know the stock heatsink is not the best but you'd think it would ship with something that would handle the CPU better...

Other Thoughts: i7 FTW
