Pros: Fast. Super fast.
Cons: A little pricey
Other Thoughts: I used this processor to try and speed up my photography business. Running 800-1000 RAW files through photoshop every day was taking about 90 minutes with my old I5 2500 k. Now it takes 30 minutes. Tried to heat it up with a few games, and it never broke 35C with a water cooling rig. Great chip.READ FULL REVIEW
This review is from: GIGABYTE GA-X99-UD3 LGA 2011-v3 Intel X99 SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 ATX Intel Motherboard
Pros: Solid, once you get it to work.
Other Thoughts: I got this board for a build for my photography business to speed up photoshop processing. After installing the major components, I fired it up, only to have it cycle on and off continually without ever even booting to the BIOS screen. After 30 minutes with tech support, they suggested the Qflash to flash the bios. Nothing.
Finally, I stubled on the solution - I had a card reader installed in a usb port, and ANY usb that had something plugged into it casued the board to crash. I unplugged everything, it booted, and I installed windows. But for the rest of the day, every time Windows wanted to reboot, you had to take all of the usb devices out to get it to boot up.
Finally I updated the bios from the enclosed software, and suddenly, everything works. Like I say, good board, but buggy. Have some time to kill.
Pros: Small and very sturdy
Cons: Directions are poorly translated, but you don't really need them. No wall plug with it. The "charging" cord is a mini USB to USB, so you need a wall adapter to plug it in. Shipping was from Taiwan, took 15 days registered mail, and I had to go to the post office and sign.
Other Thoughts: Mini USB is hard wired so you wont ever lose it, also 2 usb ports available. Nice little device.READ FULL REVIEW
