Pros: High performance
Strong build (Well manufactured and engineered)
Easy OC with the right setup
Most important for me because I sell computers, hardware, etc. G skill customer service.
Lots of companies develop ram but G skill has a fantastic reputation of pleasing its customers, superior customer service, and quick reply times. All of these are very important to me because they ensure my long standing commitment to buy ram and other products from the company will continue into the future!
Cons: That I didn't buy more!READ FULL REVIEW
Overclocking ability, I could get 4-5GHz with minimal cooling.
Helps run games flawlessly
Intel makes a stronger product than its competition
High benchmark scores
Other Thoughts: Unless AMD releases something absolute incredible - and even then - I don't think I would ever buy an AMD chipped product again. Intel all the way and ever PC I have ever owned had an AMD chip inside.
I believe I received what some refer to as the golden CPU because with the Asus X79 Deluxe MOBO you are able to overclock to 6GHz with an adequate cooling system. Don't try this at home ;)
Pros: Large Screen
-Quad Core Processor
-6GB would put it at what I believe over the regular consumer industry standard of 4GB (debately 8GB)
-The combination of the medium end processor with a low-medium (consumer end) set of ram sticks also makes this computer very future proof.
Cons: I'm personally not a fan of windows 8, especially on computers without touch screens as I feel that is what the operating system was designed for. Some enjoy windows 8 - 8.1 so my con may be your pro!
-AMD Processor, knowing what I know regarding benchmarks this isn't an awful PC but the AMD processors unless they are A8-A10, or the desktop models FX,etc. they do not compare to the i5 and i7 processors. Don't get me wrong either AMD make wonderful products but the processor will not blow your socks off.
I also noticed that the fan gets really loud on the pc. I have cleaned it a few times but
Other Thoughts: For the price I paid on a good refurb/priced product at the time I have definitely gotten my bang for my buck and this is why I would recommend never immediately shying away from newegg.ca/.com deals and other companies refurb deals because you just may find that perfect pc.READ FULL REVIEW
