SAMSUNG UD590 Series U28D590D Black 28
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 month to 1 year

Pros: Lots of screen settings to tweak the color profile.
Great behind the monitor button joystick thing.
Super sharp at 4k over Display Port

Cons: I have had a lot of problems with this monitor and I probably should just send it back for a different one.

Stuff that is bad no matter what:
The stand is cheap and wobbly
No VESA mount
Cords stick straight out of the back, making cable routing a challenge

My issues:
The screen randomly seems to be "resying" with whatever I have it plugged into. It will just freeze, go black, then come back. I'm not even gaming, just software engineering stuff. I think maybe it can't actually handle 60Hz at 4k over DisplayPort. See below for machines used.

If I wanted 30Hz, there's a wide range of monitors I could have used. I bought this one so I could get 60Hz! I'm an engineer, I can't have my screen randomly blinking out and locking up.

Other Thoughts: Computers used:
15" MacBook Pro Late 2014 10.9 and 10.10 with Intel Iris Pro over Display Port 1.2 (Haven't tried HDMI yet)
i7 4970K w/ GTX 770 4GB Windows 7 and Windows 8 over Display Port 1.2 (Haven't tried HDMI yet)

Cooler Master Hyper 212 EVO - CPU Cooler with 120 mm PWM Fan
  • Owned For: 1 month to 1 year

4 out of 5 eggs Update from my previous low egg review 12/29/2013

This review is from: Cooler Master Hyper 212 EVO - CPU Cooler with 120 mm PWM Fan

Pros: Just wanted to update that it appears that the noise issue I complained about in a previous issue was NOT made by this fan. I updated the fan to a silent one and the noise is still there. I'm assuming that the video card was the actual issue, but I still can't seem to pinpoint where the grinding noise is coming from under load. See previous review by doku.

Cons: See Pros

Intel Core i5-4670K Haswell Quad-Core 3.4GHz LGA 1150 84W BX80646I54670K Desktop Processor Intel HD Graphics
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 day to 1 week

Pros: Good value for money, especially with Newegg deal. This is the most money I would spend on a gaming CPU, and even for a workstation, its very hard to argue with the bang for buck here. Easy to install!

Cons: Intel's decision to go with shoddy thermal paste against the IHS is just terrible and causes lots of issues for overclockers. I spent extra money to get an OC motherboard and I can barely maintain 4.0Ghz on air with any stability, regardless of voltage just because of the heat issues.

Many have shown that pulling off the IHS and replacing the shoddy paste they used with high grade stuff lowers temps by 20C! That is a HUGE drop in temps, and enables a stable 4.5 - 4.7 OC.

I obviously didn't get a unicorn chip, and I'm sure someone else here can report a stable 4.2 4.3, but I can't.

Other Thoughts: The K is for overclockers. Intel, at least put good thermal stuff on the K series, or even go back to solder!
