Intel Core i7-4790K Haswell Quad-Core 4.0GHz LGA 1150 Desktop Processor BX80646I74790K
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 month to 1 year

Pros: Good solid performer.

Cons: None yet.

Other Thoughts: At first I was unhappy about the Intel promotion that went along with my purchase but I did eventually receive the t-shirt. As for the 4790k, I'm happy with it and glad that I kept the BIOS updated on my Z87X board as it had no problem recognizing the Haswell refresh. I don't plan on overclocking it as the results may only be marginal since I'm starting out at 4.0Ghz and it can turbo up to 4.4Ghz. The additional yield will probably have a minimal effect on video encoding speeds anyway.

So overall, I'm pleased with this processor and would certainly recommend it to anyone upgrading to this platform.

By the way, it doesn't blow away my Sandy I7-2600k as I thought it might although I do have to overclock my Sandy rigs to keep up with this puppy. The flip side to this, however, is that Sandy is more amenable to an overclock.

DEEPCOOL TESSERACT SW Mid Tower Computer with Side Window and 2 Blue LED Fans CaseSGCC+PLASTIC+RUBBER COATING
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 month to 1 year

Pros: Adequate, though just barely...

Cons: One SEVERE flaw...

Other Thoughts: I'm torn between two case types. One, is the solid as a tank Antec cases of old. I love 'em because of their sturdiness and construction. The other is the Rosewill Challenger, Deepcool Tesseract lightweight cases that are much easier to move around. I like the fact that these lightweight cases can be flipped over easier for removing/replacing/rearranging connections, disconnecting and reconnecting hard drives, etc. The Tessearct falls into this catergory.

The severe flaw, however, is the expansion slot design. They're made of cut out steel and, yup, once you pop 'em out they won't fit back in. Not no way no how. That means that if you decide to remove your graphics card or some other device you're stuck with a gaping hole in the rear of your case.

Have never run into this before not with cases new or old, cheap or dear. This made my experience with this case somewhat disappointing.

Kaybles 15ft HDMI-S-15 15 ft. High Speed HDMI Cable with Ethernet and Gold Plated Connector in OEM Package M-M 15 feet
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 month to 1 year

Pros: Seems to work and haven't ruled out using it for other devices.

Cons: Expected better... I expected that thick, sturdy, shielded rubber feel but this feels more like thin, stiff, plastic sheathing. May be of lower quality than the one I got from the cable company; will have to check them side by side to confirm...

Other Thoughts: I had hoped to use my HDTV as a computer monitor via HDMI as the supplied VGA input lacks HDCP support. Am using an ATI 6850 card which offers native HDMI support and went with this cable directly to the HDMI out on the TV. I was much better off with dual link DVI-D cable via a small DVI female to HDMI end. Don't want to blame the product unnecessarily but thought that a straight HDMI to HDMI connection would offer the best video. I was wrong. Use of this cable got progressively worse and so I went back to my old connection after a week. Will keep it around as it may be useful for something else (other than a PC to HDTV connector).
