Dell XPS X8700-1988blk
  • neweggOwned For: less than 1 day

5 out of 5 eggs A must have for large screen enthusiasts. 12/12/2015

This review is from: Dell XPS X8700-1988blk

Pros: 108" Screen Size. Lots of "Real Estate".
Of course it's a 1080P TN panel, but compared to older TN panels, it looks great.

Cons: "screen door" effect pretty apparent up close, but from 10 or 15 feet away it looks like the megatron at cowboys stadium.

Other Thoughts: Comes with a pretty zippy little desktop computer, too.
When it stops working, I'm going to re-purpose it as a gazebo roof.

Pros: Looks awesome. Illuminated 'DEVIL 13' logo. Great backplate design.
Size makes a GTX 980 CLASSIFIED look like a trinket.
Well packaged.
Plenty of VRAM (more than it needs).
Comes with a bunch of swag including a super-nice ambidextrous mouse.
Powercolor is a great brand in my opinion.

Cons: Lacks performance when compared to the old 295X2.
Could overclock a max of 1049Hz.
Huge and heavy. If mounted parallel to ground you must use the enclosed 'prop'.
Crossfire becomes disabled at times for no apparent reason.
Not enough horsepower to be a standalone 4k solution.
Requires some firmware attention by the manufacturer.

Other Thoughts: I purchased this because I was curious, and I'm keeping it in that spirit. I wouldn't recommend this to a friend though.

ASRock Z170 Extreme6+ LGA 1151 Intel Z170 HDMI SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.1 USB 3.0 ATX Intel Motherboard

  • neweggOwned For: 1 day to 1 week

Pros: Looks great with the bronze-colored highlights. Kinda matches copper pipes on gpu heatsyncs.
Front panel USB 3.1

Cons: I built an entire system, was tedious about cable management and component selection. When the moment of truth came, no POST. Debug LED read "00" (no cpu detected). Uh oh. I happened to have a working system with a 6600K, pulled it, reinstalled just for measure, same "00" code. Returned for refund.

Other Thoughts: Don't even write a reply ASrock. I'm mad at you right now.
