FURYous!

HyperX FURY 8GB DDR4 2133 (PC4 17000) Desktop Memory Model HX421C14FB/8
HyperX FURY 8GB DDR4 2133 (PC4 17000) Desktop Memory Model HX421C14FB/8

Pros: - Super clean and simple - You can tell it was built with quality in mind - Performs well, first time playing with DDR4 so not sure how others would perform compared to this one. Although basing off DDR3 HyperX Fury is a pretty amazing series of RAM

Cons: - Nothing, works the way it should and performs really good

Overall Review: - Got it for $40 on Cyber Monday

Most Critical Review

Lost Laser :(

QUMAX Lynx S2-Red Red/Black 7 Buttons 1 x Wheel Wired Laser 2400 dpi Gaming Mouse
QUMAX Lynx S2-Red Red/Black 7 Buttons 1 x Wheel Wired Laser 2400 dpi Gaming Mouse

Pros: Worked for....uhmm 2 days?

Cons: The laser inside the mouse ended up not working 1 day? Not sure why, I was gone for like a week at my grandma's and came back and I couldnt move. What's weird, I can still click and move back and forth on my buttons? Just not move the cursor.

Overall Review: Was a nice mouse though. BTW - I'm the person that did the, "Quite Amazing :D" Post :P

Outstanding!

Fractal Design Define S Black Window Silent ATX Midtower Computer Case
Fractal Design Define S Black Window Silent ATX Midtower Computer Case

Pros: - Beyond durable - HUGE window, super clear - So much room I put my cat and the computer in it - Air flow is super smooth, with it not having a hard drive bay in the front of the fans my CPU can tell - 2 Provided fans are superior quality - The provided Velcro-strips in the back for cable management is super handy, there's at least an inch of space for your terrible cable crossing and it'll still fit nice and flush! - Sound deadening, not only makes it even more quiet...But also adds rigidity to it - I love the angled rubber grommets, really makes the cable management super clean looking - Brushed aluminum face - Super easy setup for the 3 HDD bays and 2 SSD bays. - HDD bays also support SSD's - Have I talked about the space for cable management?! - It's not only the quietest build I've ever done, but also the best...And coolest. It's an extremely professional look and clean - Ample space for fans, and HUGE GPU's...I'm actually buying the biggest GPU I can find, because I can - Thumb-Screws stay in + Handle to remove panel is like, I can actually fit my sausage fingers into and actually grip the panel to pull

Cons: - No disc drive, although some like this (as do I) - No fan filter on the top - The plexi-glass is sort of reflective - The blue LED isn't blinding, although bright. It also doesn't match my Red/Black build. *I knew all of these going in, and am taking everything to an extreme.

Overall Review: I will never go with ANY other case brand, ever. Only Fractal for life, that include to ALL my customers. Absolutely amazing, Superior quality, and out standing performance + looks.

Amazing CPU!

Intel Core i5 6th Gen - Core i5-6600K 6M Skylake Quad-Core 3.5 GHz LGA 1151 91W BX80662I56600K Desktop Processor Intel HD Graphics 530
Intel Core i5 6th Gen - Core i5-6600K 6M Skylake Quad-Core 3.5 GHz LGA 1151 91W BX80662I56600K Desktop Processor Intel HD Graphics 530

Pros: - Lightning fast - Stupid cool, I idle @ 30C and when gaming I'm at 36C (Tops) To extreme CPU intensive games. I'm using a Rosewill RCX-Z90-AL cooler & some Cooler Master thermal paste from a Hyper 212 Evo I got awhile back. Fan spins @ 800RPM's, stupid quiet. - Performs DayZ @ 30FPS (High settings IN TOWNS {DayZ freaks will understand my pain} @ 1080p) So plays really well - I get a SOLID 60FPS+ in any games I've played with a Radeon HD 7770. (Testing a simple card with modern high end CPU) - Seriously, stupid cool. (I'm still using stock 3.5GHz + Turbo)

Cons: - Not Hyper-Threaded - Expensive - PCB/Waffle board is a little thinner, causing a sketchy feel when applying a think CPU cooler on top with a lot of pressure. - No CPU cooler comes with - No L4 (EDRAM) - No vPro Technology - No Trusted Execution Technology *I knew all these going in with the purchase, this is just all the cons. That being said, these aren't docked factors nor a reason not to buy it...They're just all of the possible cons ANYONE could say about the chip, and that's not very many.

Overall Review: I'd highly recommend this CPU to anyone whom plans to do anything serious with their PC. Although it's been stated with specific BIOS updates you can overclock any CPU and not need the "K" version. I didn't want to deal with those sketchy firmwares and such, and just chose to spend the more money. Main PC Build: Intel i5-6600k @ 3.5Ghz (3.9GHz) Asrock Fatality Z170 Gaming K4 1x HyperX Fury DDR4 8GB @ 2133Mhz 1x HyperX Fury Cloud9 Edition 120GB SSD (Boot) 2x WD Red 4TB HDD (Storage) 2x PowerColor PCS+ Radeon R9 390 8GB EVGA 120-G1-1000-VR PSU Fractal Define S (Stock 2 fans)

Amazing and beautiful!

AMD A8-3850 - A-Series APU (CPU + GPU) Llano Quad-Core 2.9 GHz Socket FM1 100W AMD Radeon HD 6550D Desktop APU (CPU + GPU) with DirectX 11 Graphic - AD3850WNGXBOX
AMD A8-3850 - A-Series APU (CPU + GPU) Llano Quad-Core 2.9 GHz Socket FM1 100W AMD Radeon HD 6550D Desktop APU (CPU + GPU) with DirectX 11 Graphic - AD3850WNGXBOX

Pros: Fast, quiet, low power, easy to OC, and is extremely solid.

Cons: Every once and awhile when I'm capping out my computer it will lag, sometimes freeze. But that could be my 12GB of RAM.

Overall Review: I've used this in a few builds, and it's been working not only for me. But for them as well, even my family has been using them nearly everyday!

Good and Stable

Pros: Stable, quiet, strong.

Cons: I had to stretch the 2 SATA power's, although that was kind of my fault. Sense the case is a little larger than most.

Overall Review: I've used this in a few builds, and it's been working not only for me. But for them as well, even my family has been using them everyday!
