Toshiba FlashAir 8GB Wireless Flash Memory SD Card 050332409323
  • Owned For: less than 1 day

5 out of 5 eggs Be Carefull 05/29/2014

This review is from: Toshiba FlashAir 8GB Wireless Flash Memory SD Card 050332409323

Pros: Nice if you own the camera

Cons: Needs the Olympus app on the other end

Other Thoughts: If you check the final picture you can see the "not for individual sale" warning on the bag. That should be a clue that this is something odd. It's a card that goes in an Olympus camera to let it WiFi dump pictures.

Intel Core i7-2600K Sandy Bridge Quad-Core 3.4GHz (3.8GHz Turbo Boost) LGA 1155 95W BX80623I72600K Desktop Processor Intel HD Graphics 3000
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 month to 1 year

Pros: Great CPU
Overclocks well
Hits 4.8 to 4.9 GHz with rational voltages and cooling
Hits 4.4 to 4.5 GHz with stock voltage (< 1.3V) on my MB
Power / heat really drops back when you stop doing stuff. >10:1 change between Prime95 and nothing going on.

Cons: Does not cook bacon
Won't clock quite as fast as an i5 Sandy Bridge
Roughly 2 to 3 % slower on most benchmarks than "fastest thing on the planet" (not a bad con ...)

Other Thoughts: If you are going to overclock, just throw away the Intel fan. It's for non-overclock use. Get a nice big air cooler for $20 to $60. There are LOTS of them to pick between.

Keep the core voltage below 1.4V and it should run a long time.

If you have temps above 70C check your case fans, they should keep the inside of the case at room temp. If they aren't - add some more.

Be carefull with "stock voltage". Not all motherboards agree on what that should be.

ASUS MAXIMUS IV EXTREME (REV 3.0) LGA 1155 Intel P67 SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 Extended ATX Intel Motherboard
  • Owned For: less than 1 day

Pros: High end board with lots of PCIe lanes
As good as it gets on voltage regulators
Lots of features
Asus software is *very* good compared to what othes supply
BIOS updates quicker than the competition.

Cons: Not every feature is usefull for every user

Other Thoughts: See - some people who aren't verified owners like the board.

You pay a lot for this board and you get a lot. Be sure you need what you get. If you need what this board has, it's *way* ahead of the few boards out there people suggest as competition.

Still a mid range CPU. If you want high end, spend 3 to 4X more. With some luck, you will (barely) do better than what this board can do.
