Intel Core i5-3470 Ivy Bridge Quad-Core 3.2GHz (3.6GHz Turbo Boost) LGA 1155 77W BX80637i53470 Desktop Processor Intel HD Graphics 2500

Pros: (EDIT) Yes my CPU is still doing great! But I want to make issue with this CPU being sold by NothingButSavings for $309! This is a CPU from 2012/2013! And when I bought it back in mid 2014 it only cost me $179. When this CPU was brand new in late 2012 it only cost $190! So why is NothingButSavings selling a dated 3rd gen i5 for $309? Stay away from NothingButSavings! Newegg needs to stop allowing questionable vendors use their site! This is why I stopped using Newegg!

It's fast and very powerful at stock speeds. Goes perfect with my R9 270. I had a i5 750 lynnfield chip running my rig before this one, And the temps on the i5 3470 is so much better. I am using just the stock cooler and it idles in the 30's and does not go past 58c under load. The old i5 750 would get past 80c under load. So there is a big improvement in temps with this chip over previous gen i5's. Also the performance of the i5 3470 is a massive improvement over my old i5 750.

Cons: Well I can't think of any big cons except the multiplier being limited to x40, But honestly it is still able to be overclocked decently.

Other Thoughts: Well in my opinion this is the perfect gaming processor. It holds it's own against all other processor's and you never need to take it past stock speed. It is not the fastest or the newest on the market. But it is a very respectable High end processor. And it should satisfy most enthusiasts.

Thermaltake Versa H22 Mid-Tower Case CA-1B3-00M1NN-00 SPCC ATX 7 x Expansion Slots 3 x 5.25
  • neweggOwned For: 1 day to 1 week

Pros: Cheap! And is excellent quality!

Cons: Drive bay snaps can be annoying, And the sides should have been designed a little better to make them easier to get off and on.

Other Thoughts: You can't ask for a better case at this price! I bought this to replace my very very loud Antec ThreeHundred, Don't get me wrong I love my old Antec case, but it is a older design. My New Thermaltake Versa H22 keeps my system just as cool as the Antec did with only one fan! I run this hardware in this case,
CPU: Intel Ivy i5-3470@3.8ghz
Mobo: Biostar TZ77A
Ram: 8GB G.Skill Ripjaws 1600mhz
PSU: Corsair CX600
And just the rear fan in this case keeps everything cool, My CPU (stock intel fan) and GPU will get a little past 60c under load but that's it. And most important it's very quiet now. My ears no longer ring. Also cable management is excellent. I have no idea why some people can't figure out the fan mounts on the air filter. It's called common sense people! Just like when you played legos!

Microsoft Windows 10 Pro 64-bit

1 out of 5 eggs Great if you love living in a glass house! 08/28/2015

This review is from: Microsoft Windows 10 Pro 64-bit

Pros: The only pro is DX12, And that is it! I would not have even gone with windows 10 if it was not for all the money I spent on a DX12 card! Windows 10 is a Orwellian nightmare! And I would still not use 10 if I was not smart enough to know how to disable all the spyware! It took me almost a whole day to disable and get rid of cortana and edge, And drive one, and the cloud garbage! And the rest of the spyware! Now it is basically Windows 8.1 without Internet Explorer, But I never used IE anyway! So no loss!

Cons: Cortana is just annoying! And it takes forever to sift through and disable all the new Microcrap embedded spyware!

Other Thoughts: This is just unacceptable! Whatever happened to power to the people? Give the people what they want? Nobody wants this garbage!
