4 out of 5 eggs Fast. Cool. Expensive. Overclocking is a bit limited. 07/17/2016

This review is from: Intel Core i7-6800K 15M Broadwell-E 6-Core 3.4 GHz LGA 2011-v3 140W BX80671I76800K Desktop Processor

Pros: - 6 cores, 12 threads is great for gaming and heavily multi-threaded applications.
- Runs cool.

Cons: - Expensive
- Performance difference from 5820K is minimal
- Not the greatest overclocker

Other Thoughts: I "side-graded" from my 5820K. I wasn't expecting a vast performance difference, just wanted to play with the latest and greatest technology. I can only manage 4.3Ghz stable on my ASUS X99-PRO @ 1.300v. The system would immediately crash at 4.4Ghz @ 1.325v. I could have tried cranking the voltage up really high, but I didn't think it was worth it. From what I've read, 4.2-4.3Ghz seems the normal range for this particular chip.

This CPU is running noticeably cooler than my old 5820K, despite running at higher voltage. Idle temp is about 32C, and goes up to about 46C during gaming. Impressive.

System Specs:
6800K @ 4.3Ghz
Corsair H110
16GB G.Skill PC2800 DDR4
MSI Gaming 980 Ti
500GB Samsung 850 EVO
EVGA 850w Platinum
Dell U3011
Jonsbo W2 Case

NOTE: I happened to get this CPU on sale, and with a gift code for $399.99. At the regular price of $439.99 I think it's overpriced compared to the 5820K.

5 out of 5 eggs Works great! 12/18/2015

This review is from: Corsair Gaming MM200 Mouse Mat - Standard Edition

Pros: Thin
Doesn't slide around
Doesn't collect dirt

Cons: A bit large

Other Thoughts: I bought this to use at work. I wanted something simple and thin, and this fits the bill perfectly. I didn't notice any smell to it, or any issues with it sliding around as other have experienced. It also seems to stay pretty clean.

5 out of 5 eggs Smooth Upgrade from Windows 7 Pro 08/12/2015

This review is from: Microsoft Windows 10 Pro 64-bit

Pros: I'm not sure what all the negative reviews are for. My upgrade from Windows 7 Pro was near flawless. The only thing that didn't automatically update was the Nvidia High Def. drivers, which updated a day later.

I upgraded by downloading the installer and running it from the desktop. The whole process took about 15 minutes after the download finished.

- Smooth upgrade
- Familiar feel coming from Windows 7
- DirectX 12 support

Cons: - Metro tiles still exist to some extent
- You have to install MS updates eventually. Pro version only lets you defer them.

Other Thoughts: i7 5820K @ 4.4GHz
16GB PC2800 DDR4
500GB Samsung EVO 850
Corsair HX750
Corsair H110
Jonsbo W2 Case
Dell U3011
