ASUS MAXIMUS VI HERO LGA 1150 Intel Z87 HDMI SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 ATX Intel Motherboard
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 month to 1 year

Pros: I like ASUS motherboards they last. You get what you pay for. look for the best capacitors on a motherboard, this motherboard has it, most other parts never fail from my experience . I have been fixing computers for 15 years, and see very few problems with ASUS, MSI, and Gigabit motherboards. You want one that will last. I even like the new Bios on this board.

Cons: NONE

G.SKILL Ripjaws X Series 32GB (4 x 8GB) 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM DDR3 1866 (PC3 14900) Desktop Memory Model F3-1866C9Q-32GXM
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 week to 1 month

Pros: I did a lot of research before buying this DDR3 ram, G.Skill has a good reputation from many overclockers for lasting a long time. This ram is very stable, grate heat-sinks, and just looks sexy. ASUS has this ram on the Qualified Vender List for maximum compatibility with my board, you can never go wrong if ASUS says its stable, and puts it on their QVL. Super easy to install, Just go into Bios, and select XMP, and that setting will automatically set all the timings for the DDR3 1866 ram automatically, or you can also set them manually if you please, how easy is that. I needed the 32gigs kit, if you are using 3DS MAX, MAYA, or BLENDER for computer animation, or video editing with CS6 MASTER COLLECTION, or SONY VEGUS PRO, the extra gigs will definitely help on those big projects. RAM DISK is another grate option to use with this ram. Comes with LIFE TIME WARRANTY, wow!!!!!! and Works with AMD and INTEL platforms. RAPJAWS X rock.

Cons: NONE

Intel Core i7-4771 Haswell Quad-Core 3.5GHz (3.9GHz Turbo) LGA 1150 84W Desktop Processor Intel HD Graphics 4600 BX80646I74771
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 week to 1 month

Pros: The pro features of the 4771 cpu are, Trusted Execution Technology (TXT) ,Extended xAPIC support, virtual machine manager (VMM),and instruction set extensions like, TSX (HLE interface), TSX (RTM interface). The K series lack those features, but overclocks better like up to 4.8ghz with proper cooling. I7 4771 is perfect choice for my needs with the pro features. I overclock the I7 4771 to 4.134ghz just by changing the BLCK frequency to 106, and change the additional turbo mode cpu core voltage to 1.25. and set core voltage to adaptive mode. Use a program like Real TempGT its free, it will show temps and actual CPU speed, windows basic information will show 3.5ghz don't worry its overclocked to 4.134 but will not show it. My idle temps are 35c, and with Prime 95 it goes up to 58c on max load. If you are a MAME team Engineer, or a tester all the games will run a full speed, even Gauntlet Legends,NFL Blitz 99,Vapor TRX, and many others. N64 also runs at full speed with this CPU, it's also grate for rendering in 3DS MAx and, playing all the new games for windows, audio programs like Pro Tools love this CPU. Bench marks do not lie, this CPU is fast.

Cons: Not Fully unlocked
