GIGABYTE G1 Gaming GA-Z170N-Gaming 5 (rev. 1.0) LGA 1151 Intel Z170 HDMI SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.1 USB 3.0 Mini ITX Intel Motherboard
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: 1 month to 1 year

Pros: Skylake 1151 socket
DDR4
Qualitry parts
Easy to use Bios (all are pretty much now UEFI)
Easy OCing
Good port locations
X-fi option
Killer network option
Red LED can pulse, beat or stay on/off
Built in Wi-Fi (but I use the lan)
m.2

Cons: As my first mini ITX build, this mobo is way smaller than a normal ATX ( hard to build in)
CD comes with many usless programs
USB 3.0 should be right angled like a sata port


Other Thoughts: Had this mobo for about 2 month and I must say, its a great little board. Z170 chipset seems to work great, bios is easy to use and flash. The built in wifi and killer lan port both work great. If your in the market for a mini itx board, this could be the one.

Cooler Master Hyper TX3 - CPU Cooler with 3 Direct Contact Heatpipes
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: 1 week to 1 month

5 out of 5 eggs Much better than expected 03/02/2016

This review is from: Cooler Master Hyper TX3 - CPU Cooler with 3 Direct Contact Heatpipes

Pros: Compact design fits snugly in my Thermaltake core V1 mini case
Cools better than expected
Quiet
Cheap
Cooler Master Brand is quality
No need to install a backplate

Cons: *Neweggs shipping is really getting slow (not to deter from the product at all), but took 2 weeks to arrive....
Not water cooling, but its not trying to be
Uses the same style plugs that intel does on its stock cooler (yuk)...but its easy to install.

Other Thoughts: After reading all the naysayers out there that this wasn't even close the the 212 evo, I didn't expect much. I've owned many different cooling solutions over the years from custom water loops, to AIO water solutions, to 212 evo and many others. I recently did a mini ITX build and needed something compact that wouldn't make me switch out the big front fan in my Thermaltake Core v1 case. Ya, I thought about watercooling, but decided it wasn't worth the cost for my Skylake i5 6400. So, looking at what would fit in my small case, this baby popped up. As mentioned, I owned many other products and really liked the tower design of the 212 and knew this would be similar but on a slightly smaller scale.

As it turns out, this is a great cooler! Don't let people who want a degree or more out of their cooling deter you from this item. This thing is quiet and cool. Keeps my cpu @ 25C idle and 40C load. Its actually pretty decent and considering the price (which is super cheap)...why not!

Sure, its not a water cooling solution, nor does it have the other high end coolers specs, but hey, this thing is super cheap and gets the job done without having to remove the mobo.

ASUS PB258Q Black 25
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: 1 day to 1 week

Pros: 2560x1440 is the sweet spot currently
Quality company
0 dead pixels
IPS
Easy to use OSD
Good stand
25" is great for smaller desks

Cons: Not G-sync (but its not in that price range so not really a con)
Only 60hz
4K might be affordable soon?

Other Thoughts: I owned two different Korean 2560x1440 IPS monitors over the past 4 years. They were good monitors with horrible stands. One of them was able to OC to 120hz and worked well. However, you were getting a no name panel from Korea without a warranty... was always worried when I ordered one.


This however, is an amazing monitor. The colors are bright due to the IPS panel, the res is amazing at 2K. Both of the Korean monitors (Yamakasi & QNIX) I owned were 27" which were HUGE! Don't get me wrong, if I had more desk space and didn't have my wife yelling at how big it was, I'd get the 27". However, I got a smaller desk and wanted a smaller screen so it wouldn't be so overbearing. This is prefect! Those 2 extra diagonal inches make a big difference, yet still has the 2k res. Love it. If you're in a similar situation as I was, you won't regret getting this monitor, especially considering the price for a 2k monitor now!
