Pros: Power usage is low and price is very reasonable considering the warranty it comes with. 1080p runs well above what the human eye and brain can decipher. Quiet fans. Low heat and performance differences from my previous 660 is wonderful. About a 120% increase in over all performance. Please see Other.

Cons: None.

Other Thoughts: About 3 years ago I purchased a MSI GTX 660 and experienced a approximate 80% increase in over all performance from my previous GTX 460. The price vs performance was a perfect upgrade. I just bought an open box PNY GTX 1060 3GB from newegg for 159.99$ shipped. Overall I am very happy with Nvidia cards and my particular upgrade path. This card is still able to run 2160p (4k) games in high settings above 30 FPS, which is acceptable to me. Side by side, this card is no different than a 1060 6GB card when running 1080p games. For the price, cooling and power consumption, I highly recommend this card over other 1060 3GB cards. Oh, and you can't beat the warranty. I hope you find this helpful.
My Computer:
i7 5820k
GTX 1060 3GB PNY
32GB DDR4 2133
SSDs for OS and Storage.

In comparison to my GTX 660 WindForce, The 1060 just more than doubles my 1080p Final Fantasy HeavensWard Benchmark.

Pros: 2133 freq. 15 15 15 35 CAS. 4GB. All that for 9$. Not much else to say.

Cons: None

Other Thoughts: Unfortunately this was a short time offer and I was only able to purchase 2. I did buy other RAM from another website that matched the clock frequency, Voltage and CAS latency and paired it up with my Avexir. No issues at all. I have a total of 8x4GB (quad channeled) DDR4 2133 installed. If you see this deal again, I recommend Newegg as a purchase point. Cheers!

5 out of 5 eggs This is the best motherboard for 2011-3 processors. 09/11/2016

This review is from: ASRock X99 Taichi LGA 2011-v3 Intel X99 SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.1 USB 3.0 ATX Motherboards - Intel

Pros: For new people to tech, this provides easy OC features. A-Tuning (a must have) application is amazing and provides a wide range of abilities to manage your motherboard and processor/RAM. It connects to the internet and will let you know if your drivers are out of date and so much more.

Cons: Absolutely none.

Other Thoughts: I researched several motherboards before purchasing this one. I purchased a i7 5820K (for only 325 new!) and plopped it in the Taichi. This motherboard is so easy to install. The features are amazing. Builtin WiFi, 2 1Gb NICs and 8 slots (128GB max) DDR4. I highly recommend this to everyone who is going to purchase a 2011-3 processor. You will not be disappointed.
