Intel Core i7-4820K Ivy Bridge-E Quad-Core 3.7GHz (Turbo 3.9GHz) LGA 2011 130W BX80633i74820K Desktop Processor

Pros: It runs really fast and has the power to do what you want in computing. It will run any software you like to use. It will get the job done. It is the biggest processor that Intel makes at this time.

Cons: People from Intel and other techs fail to mention that you need more than an air cooled heat sink and fan to cool this beast down. It does not matter how big and powerful your air cooled unit is, it want get the job done. Why did those whom are suppose to know keep it from us the public ?

Other Thoughts: I solved the problem of this processor over heating. It was simply to buy a self contained water cooled unit. It keeps the temperature within normal limits. 30 degrees C at idle. While running it under full load it gets to 43 degrees, well within normal limits. Something techs do not tell you..

G.SKILL Ripjaws Z Series 16GB (4 x 4GB) 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM DDR3 2133 (PC3 17000) Desktop Memory Model F3-17000CL9Q-16GBZH

Pros: Good looking case. Nice colors. The feel of the individual strips strong. It was made for the X79 chipset but, works well with the Socket 1155 series motherboard with latest bios updates.

Cons: None so far.

Other Thoughts: I used these memory strips in all four memory slots. The Ripjaw Z memory straightened out my bios problem. I was having troubles with my Asrock Extreme 3 Gen3 motherboard. It would not start from a cold start without pressing the reset switch several times. It was acting squirely all the time. After using this memory, all my problems disappeared over night. My motherboard runs really great now.

2 out of 5 eggs Bad memory strip onboard 10/28/2010

This review is from: ASUS Sabertooth X58 LGA 1366 Intel X58 SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 ATX Intel Motherboard

Pros: I had it a couple of days but, from what I could see of it, the bios graphics are nice.

Cons: Abcourse, it had a bad memory strip at the B1 spot in the memory block. I did not have time to give it a real test.

Other Thoughts: I will review it again once, NewEgg returns my replacement board. I ask for an Exchange. I am more than willing to give it another try. I will re-evaluate this board again once I have it up and running. Do not, I repeat blaime NewEgg for, this could happen to anyone or any manufacture whom makes motherboards. Asus is a trusted company among PC board manufactures.
