Pros: Does the job
Never had a problem
Cons: None so far
Overall Review: Does the job. I think it's rated above my current system as far as wattage goes, so no problems.
Cons: Collects dust very easily
Could come with more fans
Overall Review: Great case! A little roomier than I anticipated, so my lack of hardware in it looks silly. It collects dust very easily and needs to be cleaned often. Could probably benefit from filters on the provided fans.
Pros: Low temps
Runs everything I need it to
No problems so far
Overall Review: Great CPU, runs everything great on the ASROCK H97 Anniversary motherboard and Asus GTTX970 Strix. Planetside 2, a very CPU-heavy game runs about 100fps on ultra settings. Runs Shadow of Mordor, Advanced Warfare, and Skyrim all on ultra settings with no problem. Can't speak to the on-board graphics, though. I did use them while I was waiting for my GTX970 and could still play Planetside 2.
Pros: Just amazing all-round. Rarely kicks out of silent mode on most ultra-settings games. I play Planetside 2 quite a bit and the CPU limits me to where the Strix never kicks out of silent mode.
Runs Advanced Warfare on ultra with no problems.
