ASUS VX279Q Black 27
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: 1 day to 1 week

Pros: Sleek, very thin bezel, looked very good on my desk.

Cons: 1920x1080 is very pixellated at 27". This monitor might look good, have a fast response time, nice color, etc., but that means nothing to me if I can actually see the pixels in diagonal lines. I RMAed it.

Other Thoughts: Coming from an old Dell Ultrasharp 24" monitor, I was expecting better resolution, smoother lines, and somewhat crisp text. As soon as the "Asus" splash screen appeared, I noticed the pixellation. I really think we are all becoming spoiled by the high resolution smartphones and tablets. I would spring for one of the higher end Asus monitors. Don't get caught up in the "outer beauty" of this one.

Cooler Master Hyper 212 EVO - CPU Cooler with 120 mm PWM Fan

5 out of 5 eggs Effective cooling, low price 08/01/2014

This review is from: Cooler Master Hyper 212 EVO - CPU Cooler with 120 mm PWM Fan

Pros: It's rare to get this kind of performance for such a low price. At $35, I wasn't expecting much from this cooler. It actually keeps my Haswell cpu under control, as long as it isn't overclocked too hard.

Cons: The mounts can be a pain, but they aren't that hard to figure out.

Other Thoughts: This cooler isn't as good as my old trusty Noctua cooler, but it comes in at a much lower price point too. If you intend to overclock hard, I would pay more for better cooling. Otherwise, this cooler is great.

Intel Core i7-4790K Devil's Canyon Quad-Core 4.0 GHz LGA 1150 88W BX80646I74790K Desktop Processor Intel HD Graphics 4600
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: 1 week to 1 month

Pros: Runs strong. Overclocked easily to 4.7ghz with an inexpensive Hyper 212Evo cooler. This is plenty fast enough for my needs.

Cons: Runs hot. In a Gigabyte Z97 board with default bios settings, it was hitting 100C under load! As many other people did, I checked the cooler thinking it wasn't mounted right, but it was fine. I guess the 4790k really does run that hot. I'd suggest going into the bios and getting the temps under control before doing anything else.

Other Thoughts: This is a very fast, very hot cpu. I think Gigabyte boards are somewhat overclocked right out of the box. I found out that "Auto" translates to "as fast as possible," so you might have to go in and set some things manually just to get the temps down.
