ASRock ASRock Fatal1ty Gaming Fatal1ty Z97 Killer LGA 1150 Intel Z97 HDMI SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 ATX Intel Motherboard
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: 1 month to 1 year

Pros: - looks great
- 2 pci-e ports
- good for over clocking

Cons: None being that I upgraded from an old board

Other Thoughts: I upgraded from an intel DH61CR board. Huge leap. Great for my overclocking.

Intel Core i7-4790K Devil's Canyon Quad-Core 4.0 GHz LGA 1150 88W BX80646I74790K Desktop Processor Intel HD Graphics 4600

  • neweggOwned For: 1 month to 1 year

Pros: -4.0ghz stock 4.4ghz turbo
-hyper threading
-K series CPU, meaning excellent over clocking capabilities
- one of the best consumer CPUs available currently.

Cons: -Have heard it runs hot with the stock cooler so I'd recommend getting an aftermarket cooler, though I haven't used the stock cooler as I have a corsair h55 liquid cooler which produces great temps.
-$100 more than the i5 4690k, not really a con just stating that if you're just going to be gaming go with the i5. However I have noticed a significant difference in tasks such as rendering, streaming, and editing with this CPU.

Other Thoughts: I upgraded from a core i5-3570k CPU to this CPU and I have noticed a significant increase in performance. Such as having multiple applications running at once, rendering, streaming, editing, etc. however you will not notice much if any performance increase in gaming except on a few titles that utilize hyper threading technology. But for what I use my computer for, this processor gets the job done very well. I am using a corsair h55 liquid cooler and my temps at idle are around 40c and under load I rarely exceed 70c. This is with a 4.6ghz overclock. So in conclusion, if you're looking to do some crazy multi tasking and some other high CPU intensive things, this chip is it.

Cons: -Ran hot for me at one point.
-Lga 1155 discontinued :/

Other Thoughts: worth the money. although now the 4690k and the skylakes are what you'll probably be aiming for.
