Pros: This bird fly's great, long rang, good video great battery life, ordered 2 extra battery's from Newegg, got he drone about 2 Mo's ago. this is the best price anywhere for this drone with the 5" screen. every where else it is 499.00, 299.00 is a great price, thanks Newegg for a great buy. also the battery's are the best price on Newegg, 69.00, all others are 89.99, List 99.99 The orange color makes it easy to see.
Cons: I think i need to boost the signal to the remote for FPV, it gets a little fuzzy, but with a boosted antenna, I think this will be fixed like the Hubsan or any other drone out there right now.
Overall Review: I would recommend this Bird to all. it is a great deal at 299.99 from Newegg. 5" screen.
Pros: Very fast, easy over clock, 4333, 1.3375v, idle 15.c in game, any game basically 34.c, 9 fans including a cooler master 2000 Rpm on top of the processor. connected to cooler master Gemin ll S524, took stock fan off. Also on back side of the case to push the warm air out. 32gigs of G skill Sniper gaming 1866 MHz. XFX 7900 series gaming card. 2- WD VelociRaptor's 500GB 10000 RPM Hard drives, & a Samsung 128GB SSD. all of this connected to a ASUS Sabertooth 990FX R2.0 MB. This system will do anything i want. So for you folks who say this processor runs hot or too warm, it's not the CPU, it's your configuration. my processor has never been over 35.c, ever, no matter what i am doing. Hope this helps
Overall Review: I have 2 of these and plan on buying a 3rd, for my new build I have built 12 computers so far. all AMD. they are all still going strong and i have had no complaints from anyone. Match your systems, do not have any bottle necks. Start with MB and go from there.
Pros: all pros no cons. worked perfect
Pros: i have been using theses PSU's for all my builds. but i started with there former name Hex 750's PSU. i have never had any prob. with any of the knock on wood. now i bought this cougar. i like the look of there PSU's this 760 is a little more power. i have this thing powering a AMD 8350 boosted to 4.3 i have a Sapphire 7870 xt, 32 gigs of GSkill memory.
Overall Review: this PSU is also powering a Areo 5 fan controller very nice controller and 10 Fans. i can play any game i want at full graphics. my window scores are the best i have had on any computers i have built.
Memory 32 gigs: 7.8
no SSD so that kills it
but i do have a WD.500 gig Velocirapter
thought i might get a higher score but guess not.
Pros: this works great. keeps my AMD 8350 cool as a cucumber, and does not interfere with my 1866 GSkill Sniper memory. i like this cooler even better than the old Gemin II. which i have in all my other builds. they both work great but the new one looks even better.
Overall Review: not only does this cool my CPU but also keeps my memory cool.
Pros: lots of room, looks great, easy to clean, holds a lot of fans. this case holds everything i needed to put in it. i got this case to build a World of Tanks gaming rig. and boy does it fit the bill.
Overall Review: this is an all metal case and the clips on both sides of the case makes it easy to open. no screws in the back to unscrew.
Pros: This is a great MB i have had no trouble with it at all. Knock on wood. a comment on 9-2013 Mr NA lol stated you did not have to flash the Bios to get the 8350 working properly. well i didn't have to either but some might depending on the Bios version. my 8350 working on this MB right out of the box. but i called Asus and it would be better if i did flash to the newest Bios. it will perform even better. so i did and it was a breeze with the usb on the I/O shield in the back of the case. every thing it working great. i was also able to overclock the CPU and get the settings on my GSkill 1866 memory after the flash. so it will run in most cases but it would be better to get the newest Bios update.i put a fan controller in my case that not only controls the fan speeds but provides 5 heat sensors that i placed in different areas on the board to see how my cooling was working. i have 10 fans in the case and it keeps all nice and cool. this is one of the best MB i have ever used. very pleased with it.
Cons: no cons
Overall Review: i do have a question for Asus though. how come your MB for the Intel processors seem to have extra goodies on them like the armor shield's. myself as a AMD fan would pay a little more for an upgraded Board when it comes to heat shields and such. i realize it's not just Asus that does this but all Manufacturers seem to favor Intel when it comes to MB. I think there are a lot of us who would like to know the answer to this question.
Pros: i found these speakers at our local goodwill computer store, wow what a find. didn't know Bose made speakers for computers. turns out these were the top of the line from Bose. plugged them in and was amazed at the sound quality. if i tell you what i paid for them, you will be sick. but here goes, are you ready for this, $75.00. didn't know that newegg sold them. i am hooked. if i ever have to replace them i will buy them from newegg. let me tell you there worth every penny. I crank these up and my neighbors thought i was playing my home stereo, which is a very nice stereo, about 50 times what i paid for these. these are the best computer speakers you can get. Newegg, thanks for selling such great equipment.
Cons: none, natha,
Overall Review: buy em,you will be the envy, of your block.
Pros: i have 2 of these the last one was for my 3rd build. the 1st one is running 2 XFX 4890's in crossfire. the 2cnd one is running a XFX 6950, both systems have 16 gig of memory, 1TB HD, and lots of fans. not to mention the over clocked CPU's 1- 6 core, 1 quad core. knock on wood i have never had any prob. with these units. i plane to buy another for my 4th build. can't wait to try out the new AMD pile-driver 6 or 8 core haven't decided yet.
Cons: none, natha, zilch.
Overall Review: it looks like Cougar has teamed up with Zephyr. i hope these units are still going to be as good as they have been. looking at the reviews here on newegg for the Cougar 760w does not seem to compare with these units. i did notice that the 1st pic. on newegg shows the unit with 80 plus bronze. like my 1st 2 have. but the last pic. of the bow with the cougar emblem shows 80 plus only. i am going to check with newegg today to confirm this. if this is the case, i guess i will have to pass. i want at least 80 plus bronze, if not better. i hope they haven't down graded the quality of these units. don't understand why company's do things like this.
Pros: i got this MB about 4 Mo's ago i have had no prob. with it. comes with everything you need and more. love the new Bios. very easy to operate. This is one of the best MB i have used. all Japanese gold capacitors. 3 PCl exp slots 2 with x16 great for crossfire or SLl.
Overall Review: I am going to get another for a friend on his new build. hope i have the same performance. after reading some of the latest reviews.
Pros: still going strong after a year on 1 of them 6 mo. on the other. the cooler master 120mm black on blue as i call them work really well on this cooler. 2000 rpm delivers plenty of cool air for the CPU and the memory.
Cons: con's? no con's
Overall Review: i did want to comment on my last review on this cooler . at the time when i made it, i could not find anymore. and was told by someone that cooler master was not making this one any longer. i was mistaken. and am glad i was, i plan to do a lot more builds and this cooler is the ticket. it cools the CPU great and the memory and still lets you add a fan to the side of the case, because it is not too tall.
Pros: Card works great, installed and went to AMD, loaded the latest drivers never look back. card runs real cool 38c normal running and 58 to 60C on World of tanks new 8.0 update now with physics. 60c on Skyrim. i have a lot of fans on this new system i built from newegg. so that helps. rebate no prob. called XFX told them i would make a copy of the code off the box they said that would be fine. got my American Express card with 30.00 on it. i have 4 XFX cards all registered and all have lifetime warranty.
Cons: the only thing i have found and i think it is the card. but when i play newegg videos or any on line video it stops playing and i have to move my mouse over it to get it going again. loaded new copy of adobe flash and shock wave but still get the prob. put in my other card from XFX 6870 black and prob. goes away. when i play DVDs no prob. in game no prob. so going to call XFx to see what they think.
Overall Review: so far for me this has been a great card. runs a lot cooler then my 6870. also my box looks different than the pic. they show on newegg. so don't know if i got a newer version or what. but all in all every thing i have bought from newegg has worked great. thanks newegg. hope this review has helped some of you.
Pros: Still working just fine. got it broke in and over clocked to 4.1 no heat prob. and only running at 1.325 volts over clock was easy with this new AsRock 990fx Extreme 4 MB. great board,get on for your next build you will be very happy it. idle temp on the 980 runs between 36 and 40c. gaming the highest i have seen was 59c. now that's cooking with out the heat! i got mine on sale for 139.99 now same price but with blue ray great buy!
Cons: wish i had the money to buy 4 more. :)
Overall Review: I have built 4 computers using New Egg as the main supplier, all 4 rock solid, thanks New Egg
Pros: i do not need this heat sink, i have 2 others that i have bought, by cooler master. the GeminII s, this is 1 of the best heat sinks that Cooler master made. why they quit making i don't know. it is a larger version of the stock heat sink that comes with the AMD cpu's. solid copper pipes and copper base, comes with 120mm fan that pushes up to 1800 rpm. i changed mine a bit by removing the stock fan and adding the cooler master black on blue 120mm fan, it goes up to 2000 rpm and has the nice blue light to light up your case, goes good with the other 8 blue fans i have in it. i put this cooler in both of my builds. the AMD 1090 6 core idles at 36c and 49c while gaming, the AMD 980 4 core idles at 34c and 48c, gaming. they are not tall so you don't have to remove a fan from your case and i installed my GSkill Sniper memory after the heat sink was installed. 16 gigs 4 slots. sometimes bigger is not always better.
Cons: looks are great, but it needs to work in more applications. more sales of the product would be generated.
Overall Review: Cooler master makes some great products. i have 2 of there cases best I've ever owned. all my fans are cooler master all 15 of them. ranging from clear blue 80mm to clear blue 200mm not to mention the 120mm black on blue, there the best exhaust fans i have found. like i said i put 2 of them on my Cooler Master GeminII s heat sink's, 2000 rpm blowing down on the CPU keeps them nice and cool.
i think Cooler master should bring them back. if your not going to water cool. this does the trick. you can still get these you just have to check around. i hope this helps some of you out there for your cooling needs.
Pros: theses fans are high output fans there for i have learned the intake side of theses fans should not be covered, i use them for my rear exhaust systems in 2 of my builds and used a 3rd 1 for my aftermarket cooler master Geminll s heat-sink cooler. not only does it add a nice blue light inside my case along with my 8 other fans with blue light it keeps my CPU even cooler because this fan has 2000 RPM compared to the 1200 that came with the cooler. when i tried to use the fan as an intake fan in made a lot of noise and was dragging the fan down. i hope this helps with the noise problem, and the vibration you seem to be having.
Cons: exhaust only , but not a big deal, i use clear blue for my intake fans 140mm ,120mm and 80mm all from Cooler Master. no prob. at all
Overall Review: i have 9 fans total in my Cooler master case all blue light fans looks great, keeps my CPU at 35c at idle 52c full gaming, keeps the system at37c . HEAT? not a problem for me. i run 2 XfX 4890 in a cross fire never get above 76c 2-140mm on the left side of my case blowing right on them to keep the cards nice and cool.
Pros: i am looking for a board for my next build, my 1st board was the Gigabyte 990fxa UD-3 very good board, just maybe wanted something diff. for my 2cnd build. from the reviews it sounds good. but i can tell you this, if you have a prob. with a Gigabyte MB. you don't have to email them you just call and they will actually answer the phone. just called them today and got my answer, but they thought of something else and they called me back to give me a different, possibility to my question. Now that is service. if you can get someone to answer a Email that is good, but to actually speak to someone on the phone is the best service you can get. like i said i am looking for a MB for my next build and when i read what the guy said about they got back with him in 2 hours i thought well that is good but if you can't call them then i don't think i want to buy there board. so the search goes on. but may be someone from Biostar will see this and get the hint. you think, Na they want care. good luck
Cons: no phone help just Email. Um guess not. i have to put 1 day of ownership on this or they want let me post.
Pros: bought my from another store Newegg was out of them. bought it to go in my 1st build from Newegg. I have had no problems at all with this card went on line down loaded the latest drivers and have upgraded them since then, when gaming it get's about 69c on the web or watching movies about 43c. i have 8 fans in my case not counting the PSU fan or the fan on the card it self. also not counting the big 120mm on my after market heat sink, which is a Cooler Master Gemni ll low profile so i would not have to take my 140mm blue fan off the side of the case. this card is overclocked to 940 and runs smooth as glass. I can Play any game i want at top settings very smooth i get on some games to140 FPS. Movies on my Samsung P2250 look like i am there watching in person.
Cons: none, Notha. i have had it since August and have had no Problems with it.
Overall Review: thinking about buying another and running a Crossfire with them. i would get it if you can still find them . i have only found a few, but they are still higher than i paid for mine. 183.00 free shipping. now the lowest i can find them is 205.00.

Cons: none. we will see how it goes, will give an update in about 3 mo. to see how it's going

Overall Review: Very happy with it. you will be too.
Pros: I got this on sale, so looking at the price now, i really got a good deal from Newegg Put it in and never looked back works like a champ. i will get an SSD when they come down, to help improve the Windows 7 Score 5.9 is the lowest i have because of the drive. which any mechanical hard drive will be rated at that. the rest of the system looks good. 7.5,7.5, 7.8, 7.8, 5.9
