Intel Core i7-3930K Sandy Bridge-E 6-Core 3.2GHz (3.8GHz Turbo) LGA 2011 130W Desktop Processor BX80619i73930K
  • Owned For: 1 month to 1 year

Pros: There is very little out there that you will see that can top this CPU. It's expensive but to pass it requires way more money just for the CPU and then the motherboards will be expensive. Can easily OC this and it gains huge boosts in benchmarks and actual use performance while running cool.

Cons: Doesn't come with a heatsink but who uses the stock cooling with a high end processor?

Other Thoughts: Amazing performance and we have yet to see anything from Ivy Bridge that can match it. Guess we'll have to wait for the next batch of CPU's to see if Intel can beat their own product.

ASUS Sabertooth X79 LGA 2011 Intel X79 SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 ATX Intel Motherboard

  • Owned For: 1 month to 1 year

Pros: 2011 board so it's full of features, love the color over my previous Crosshair V red board. BIOS is incredibly easy to navigate and it is very stable when you OC.

Cons: Due to the design to support 8 DIMMs it doesn't have as big of a heatsink for Vcore, they try to make up for this by running a heatpipe to a tiny heatsink with a tiny fan. it does a good job of cooling but it doesn't stay as cool. Not really a big con as it's only a slight difference.

Other Thoughts: Great board for the price, 2011 boars are expensive and this board has tons of features without cranking the price too high. Long warranty from ASUS is a nice bonus but I doubt the board will die while under warranty.

XFX Double D HD-695X-CDFC Radeon HD 6950 2GB 256-Bit GDDR5 PCI Express 2.1 x16 HDCP Ready CrossFireX Support Video Card with Eyefinity

  • Owned For: 1 month to 1 year

Pros: Runs very cool, I run the fans around 80% without adding any noise from the system. Card runs great for any games I throw at it and it stays nice and cool.

Cons: It is a big card, anyone purchasing this should be running a decent sized system for gaming anyway so that should not be a problem.

Other Thoughts: 2 fans that are silent, heatpipes that do their job and look good, and a decent price before it was discontinued. Should last me until I decide I need even more power.
