This review is from: Microsoft Windows 10 Pro 64-bit
Pros: dx 12
Cons: unless you upgrade from win 8 or 7 you dont get to have an admin account. it tells me th sole owner of my pc i need admin privlages so i tried to change admin user and it caused the blue screen of death and i could not reset my os or nothing. had to do a reinstall from scratch lost all my data included over a 100 60gb games that took ages to download.
Other Thoughts: AVOID THIS OS LIKE THE PLAGUE UNLESS YOUR UPGRADING FROM 7 OR 8 THAT ALREADY HAS ADMIN USER SET TO YOU.
on my prev build when i upgraded from 7 i did not have this issue but upon a clean install of new win 10 os i can no longer be the admin of my own pc. Microsoft messed up with this os.
Pros: its nice to have ram faster then 1600mhz
Cons: noneREAD FULL REVIEW
Pros: All my game fps stay around 90 to 140fps at ultra with my 980 ti sli setup at 1080p and i have aaa titles watchdogs witcher 3 gtav ark survival evolved( this is the only game whee i stay around 30-40 at epic settings)really the only demending games i dont have currently are rise of tomb raider dragons dogma and a few others on can you run it that require 4790 cpu (i do have fallout 4)
Cons: the gigabyte motherboard i bought that advertised overclocking will not let me change the multiplier or base clcock for this cpu even after a bios update. if you are buying this cpu id recommend avoiding GIGABYTE GA-Z170XP-SLI motherboard if you plan to oc and if you dont get the non k cpu.
Other Thoughts: i don't regret choosing this cpu even tho it was expensive and my gf was mad at me for buying it, the only fight that was ever worth it lol), but ill make it up to her later. some people say you can have buyers remorse after spending cash well not with this cpu. i feel intell has done an amazing job with this one. i have high hopes that the upcoming cannonlake 8 core cpu will be 1151 socket for a good upgrade path in the future.READ FULL REVIEW
