Most Favorable Review

This is my favorite.

G.SKILL Sniper Series 16GB (4 x 4GB) DDR3L 1600 (PC3L 12800) Low Voltage Desktop Memory Model F3-12800CL9Q-16GBSR1
G.SKILL Sniper Series 16GB (4 x 4GB) DDR3L 1600 (PC3L 12800) Low Voltage Desktop Memory Model F3-12800CL9Q-16GBSR1

Pros: Fast Stable 16 GB of ram 7.9 on windows experience I have had NO skipping, NO lock ups, NO issues at all with it. Looks COMPLETELY awesome.

Cons: The only issue some one may have is that 1. They scratch easily 2. The heat sinks on them seem like aluminum and MAY bend eaily, I'm careful so I didn't have an issue with that but these are some completely awesome sticks. Runs W7 Pro @ 10% memory used.

Overall Review: Using in a EVGA Z68 SLI motherboard I love these sticks and I will definately buy again if any issues.

Most Critical Review

It's a lie.

EVGA Z68 SLI 130-SB-E685-KR LGA 1155 Intel Z68 SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 Intel Motherboard
EVGA Z68 SLI 130-SB-E685-KR LGA 1155 Intel Z68 SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 Intel Motherboard

Pros: Black, easy to mount, lights on the mobo, EXCELENT manual, Helped VERY VERY much with my build, 3 Slots.

Cons: I couldn't find that "e-sata" by the satas but the huge problem is how it was advertise. IT'S A LIE! THERE IS NOT 3 FULL x16's. IT's x16, x8 x4, And because of how close the x16 and x8 are, you have to plug your dual slot GPU into an x4, They CLEARLY lied saying 3 x16's when you only get ONE, Use the picture and read the motherboard it says x8 and x4, even the manual says it.

Overall Review: Can I still trust newegg?

Great little screwdriver!

Intel Gift
Intel Gift

Pros: It's free first of all it works 2 flat heads, and 2 cross heads.

Cons: A lot of people stated it's just flat heads, that's false. It's just EXTREMELY stiff and hard to take apart!

Overall Review: Grab some pliers, pull the screw driver bits out, grab a nail file and just shave the body of the screw driver down a little bit. Fits perfectly now!

Finally upgraded from 60 hz monitor!

ASUS MG248Q Black 24" 144Hz 1ms(GTG) Adaptive-Sync (Free Sync) LCD/LED Gaming Monitor, HDMI 1920x1080, w/ Asus Excusive GamePlus and Flicker Free Technology, Pivot&Height Adjustment, Built-in Speakers
ASUS MG248Q Black 24" 144Hz 1ms(GTG) Adaptive-Sync (Free Sync) LCD/LED Gaming Monitor, HDMI 1920x1080, w/ Asus Excusive GamePlus and Flicker Free Technology, Pivot&Height Adjustment, Built-in Speakers

Pros: This coming from a 60 hz monitor user, please keep that in mind. - The stand is super sturdy - The display is super bright - Very affordable - Came with the Display port cable! - The ability to wall mount, raise, lower, adjust is what sold me on this. - 144 hz! Duh. Overall, the colors are great. Little bit faded compared to an IPS but not very noticeable. Seems almost as if the backlighting is too strong. The set up for running 144 hz was very simple. I play mostly CS:GO which is why I wanted to upgrade from my 60 hz (overclocking that to 70) to a 144 hz monitor. There is no wobble, doesn't take up much space, and the aesthetics of the monitor is also pleasing.

Cons: -The sound quality for the built in speakers is just atrocious. I usually don't care much for monitor speaker quality, however it sounds much like it's a mono speaker from an old iPhone. - Newegg also will not price match this monitor to the price at another online Eseller, which was selling this for $50 cheaper at time of purchase. However the shipping was cheaper through Newegg. - The built in cross-hairs are more a gimmick. You get a pre-made selection of about 4 crosshairs which cannot be modified, nor can you make your own. However that's not much of an issue since I was paying for a 144 hz monitor, not much else.

Overall Review: I would definitely recommend this monitor to people looking for a low budget 144 hz monitor! It's great for the price, not a lot of gimmicky features that most companies use to up-sale a product for more than what it's really worth. I have not used the AMD Free Sync since I'm using Nvidia graphics cards so I cannot say much about that. That being said, for FPS games, this monitor is a must if you're on a budget.

I bought two!

ASUS GeForce GTX 970 4GB GDDR5 PCI Express 3.0 SLI Support Video Card TURBO-GTX970-OC-4GD5
ASUS GeForce GTX 970 4GB GDDR5 PCI Express 3.0 SLI Support Video Card TURBO-GTX970-OC-4GD5

Pros: First let me state I loved this card so much I had to buy two. I moved from an Asus GTX 780 SLI to the 970 SLI for the slight performance boost it brought - and it really brought it! The card is 4 GB, despite the complaints about only 3.5 GB usable, I have had no issues using 4 GB on the card. The card runs very cool and pretty quiet - sometimes. Overclocks like a beast! I'm at 1440 Mhz on the core with no issues whatsoever. The overall aesthetics of the card are wonderful. Let me make a note now that the shroud of the card is PLASTIC.

Cons: When I got the cards and put them in my system, I noticed a slight issue. The plastic cover that allows the fans to have dual (Top and bottom) intake were not secured fully and rattled, A LOT. I took charge and grabbed my dremel, since I had no screw driver small enough, and fabricated my own to tighten down the screws. Once they were tightened down I had no problem with noise. Contrary to popular belief about blower style cards, this card remains cooler then my previous GTX 780 SLI set up by Asus. Last con of the cards would be a lack of customization. There's no LED lights that shine; the only LED on the card is a single white LED that indicates power.

Will buy again!

Mushkin Enhanced Blackline 8GB (2 x 4GB) DDR3 2400 (PC3 19200) Desktop Memory Model 997092

Pros: It's made in America! 2400 Mhz speed Never warm

Cons: Not 2400 out of box for 'me'. I had to enable XMP. Not the lowest voltage

Overall Review: I've owned Mushkin memory in the passed (a 16GB kit) and was for sure to buy from them again! Glad I did, I love the quality of their products. They're an underrated brand and people should give the side brands a chance instead of the mainstream mark up companies. I so far only own a single kit but will be purchasing another in the future for a full 16 GB. 4770k @ 4.2 Ghz 1.225v ASUS DCU2 GTX 780 (x2, SLI) ASUS Sabertooth Z87 Corsair RM 850 WD Blue 500 GB 16 MB cache Intel 510 Series 120 GB Windows 7 x64 Bit
