Intel Core i7 7th Gen - Core i7-7700K Kaby Lake Quad-Core 4.2 GHz LGA 1151 91W BX80677I77700K Desktop Processor
Intel Core i7 7th Gen - Core i7-7700K Kaby Lake Quad-Core 4.2 GHz LGA 1151 91W BX80677I77700K Desktop Processor

Pros: Hero IX has it OC'd to 5 with a tower air cooler. And it's running cool, too; rarely hear a peep out of the fan. Super fast. It typed this review before I even touched the keyboard.

Cons: Pins being on the board gives me the heebeejeebies. But as thin as they are, I don't think I'd be comfortable with them on the processor, either. I suppose that's just agiven as the tech gets smaller and faster. I'm afraid I might have to be a licensed neurosurgeon when I get around to replacing this one 5 years down the road.

Most Critical Review

Do not buy.

ADATA Classic Series 32GB Retractable USB 2.0 Flash Drive (White + Blue) Model AC008-32G-RWE
ADATA Classic Series 32GB Retractable USB 2.0 Flash Drive (White + Blue) Model AC008-32G-RWE

Pros: No cap. seems sturdy enough...

Cons: Slower than any thumbdrive I own. 2-4 megs per second transfer rate. In my 4 days of ownership, I had to reformat it twice, and the 3rd time it crashed(mid-file transfer), it no longer was recognized as a drive on all 3 home PC's, my work PC, or my car stereo.

Overall Review: Great service from Newegg on the return! They've earned their rep regarding their customer service! One egg rating is for the product, only.

Works for me!

Cooler Master Hyper 212 Evo CPU Cooler, 4 CDC Heatpipes, 120mm PWM Fan, Aluminum Fins for AMD Ryzen/Intel LGA1200/1151
Cooler Master Hyper 212 Evo CPU Cooler, 4 CDC Heatpipes, 120mm PWM Fan, Aluminum Fins for AMD Ryzen/Intel LGA1200/1151

Pros: Quiet and versatile. Can mount another fan for push/pull, but so far I haven't needed it.

Cons: Instructions could sure use to be clearer. Fortunately, several people have done youtube vids on mounting this unit. Dog Bless 'em!

Not sure how overclocking could be any easier...

ASUS ROG Maximus IX Hero Z270 LGA1151 DDR4 DP HDMI M.2 USB 3.1 ATX Motherboard

Pros: Looks good, plays good. Run the AI app, and you're overclocked. Easy peasy.

Cons: Bios doesn't recognize my Logitech G510 keyboard. Had to go and pick up a 12 dollar KB which works fine. Go figure. If you have a big video card(you're buying a gaming mobo... duh), it will completely cover the sata drive ports.

Overall Review: If you want to get the most out of your components with almost no effort, this mobo is a good choice.

So far, so good.

ADATA 16GB Class 6 Micro SDHC Flash Card with SD adaptor Model AUSDH16GCL6-RA1

Pros: Seem pretty dern quick. It's faster than most thumb drives I own.

Cons: None, really. Bubble Packaging makes it hard to get to, like pretty much every drive.

Overall Review: Used in an HTC Evo. Original card was a class 2. It used to take forever to copy TV episodes; now it takes nowhere near as long. I'd say Class 6 is conservative.

Rosewill R-BC-01 Battery Charger for AAA/AA Alkaline ,Ni-MH, Ni-CD and 9V Batteries(battery not included)

Pros: See my review from 2/10/2011

Cons: See my review from 2/10/2011 Lack of power turned out to be the AC adaptor.

Overall Review: This is an edit to my review posted on 2/10/2011. My complements and criticisms remain(see that review) regarding the product itself. It's important to note that upon contacting Rosewill support via email(as they requested here on my review), I was treated promptly and courteously, and they sent me a whole new unit which shipped very quickly at no cost to me. I'm very appreciative of Rosewill's will to make things right on this product. They couldn't have been much more accommodating. Despite its ergonomic failings, the thing that the item is supposed to do (charge batteries) it does very well. I'm not sure how to re-rate it since I've already rated it, but in a complete do-over(as though the original hadn't died), I'd give a it 4 eggs.
