ASUS ROG MAXIMUS VIII HERO LGA 1151 Intel Z170 HDMI SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.1 USB 3.0 ATX Intel Gaming Motherboard
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 week to 1 month

Pros: Fast, lots of options and support for future proofing. Excellet Asus quality system board.

Cons: The only con I can point out is the intel lan they decided to use. I find it to be a bit sluggish at times. Very minor, if at all. Other than that, this board rocks! I have used Asus boards for years now and I am still a big fan.

Intel Core i7-6700K 8M Skylake Quad-Core 4.0 GHz LGA 1151 95W BX80662I76700K Desktop Processor Intel® HD Graphics 530
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 week to 1 month

Pros: This processor seems like you can throw just about anything at it. Runs cooler than 4th gen.

Cons: Although I love the new processor, I was slightly disappointed. The WOW factor over a 4th gen isn't significant enough to justify the cost. For those of you running 4770k etc and are looking to upgrading, I'd hold off. Don't get me wrong, the 6700k rocks, but cost (processor, ram, board) 6 to 700. Not worth the $$$

Other Thoughts: I was aware that there would only be a slight performance from 4th gen, but I expected a bit bigger of a WOW factor for the $$$. Other than that, this is a great processor and if you are going from 3rd gen or further back, this is the way to go.

5 out of 5 eggs Looks good 07/30/2015

This review is from: EVGA GTX 970 SSC Backplate ACX 2.0+ Model 100-BP-3973-B9

Pros: Looks good, helps support the cards heft in your case. Acts as a heat sync. This top/heat sync really does work well. It helps draw the heat away from your card by a few degrees Celsius. Also acts as a support for the hefty card to keep it from warping over time.

Cons: Can create heat in your case by a few degrees Celsius. This heat sync works well as it draws the heat away from your card. However, be warned that it can cause your ambient case temp to rise a few degrees because of this. I have a mid tower case, so that may be my problem. Id imagine a larger case perhaps with a side fan would not be an issue.

Other Thoughts: Great card, decent price. Video cards are a tough one though. They come and go very quickly. This time next year this card will be available for about a hundred bucks! If you have to have it now and are a gamer, go for it. This card alone blows the 700 series cards out of the water, even in SLI.
