Intel Core i7-11700F - Core i7 11th Gen Rocket Lake 8-Core 2.5 GHz LGA 1200 65W Desktop Processor - BX8070811700F

Pros: Hyper threading is always a plus like having 16 core Its 65 watts & comes with copper based heatsink which i used for my i3 I used corsair h80i v2 i got from new egg for this

Cons: None

Overall Review: I like this processor Combined with Asrock motherboard ASRock Z590 PRO4 LGA 1200 On this board I can go into bios & set Base frequincey Boost from auto to 125 watts & this processor will run all cores at 4.4 & more when needed If i wanna run cool I switch back to auto in bios & it will not get any hotter than 65 watts will throttle down no futher than 3800 when set to 65 watts Im using 3 different nvme with this board, processor has no problem handleing it with one x16 3.0 video card rx-570 3200 ram 64gb ripjaws & no issues

Most Critical Review

psu please dont fail me now

COOLMAX V-400 400W ATX v2.01 Non-Modular Power Supply
COOLMAX V-400 400W ATX v2.01 Non-Modular Power Supply

Pros: dual rail, and 24pin

Cons: it died on me after the second week

Overall Review: was cheap so i cant complain that much, not worth spending 10 bucks to send back to just half to go through the whole process again, I only had one hd going, an asus radeon 5450 video card, 1 120 fan a 92 mm tornado, mb msi 880gm-e43, and a dvd burner. I bought a themaltake at 430 whats and 5 year guaranty, no problems so far

Great Processor

Intel Core i5-10400F - Core i5 10th Gen Comet Lake 6-Core 2.9 GHz LGA 1200 65W Desktop Processor - BX8070110400F
Intel Core i5-10400F - Core i5 10th Gen Comet Lake 6-Core 2.9 GHz LGA 1200 65W Desktop Processor - BX8070110400F

Pros: Hyper threading for a low price 65 watts Did i mention cheap

Cons: None

Overall Review: In my life time I have built a little more then 10 computers they where all amd Mainly fx & some phenoms My first being a one core athlon am3 I always considered Intel but it was always so expensive so when i seen this 10th generation i5 for 177 I couldnt pass it up Intel is superior to amd I always knew it I love that its 65 watts and twice as powerful than my fx-8300 I saved the parts for my h80i & paired it with this i5 The TJmax never goes above 64 degrees Celious & the cores never goes over 56 & silent only one exaust fan needed on my case Amd requires to much power & creates to much heat. The corsair fan actually gets to the point where it stays at 0 rpm at idle. I Paired the processor with ASRock Z590 PRO4. & a rx-470 This build is my most silent and low temp system i ever built My card under load doesnt ever get above 71 C Sapphire nitro 8gb

Awesome little card for pci express 1

ZOTAC GeForce GT 710 1GB DDR3 PCI Express x1 Video Card ZT-71304-20L
ZOTAC GeForce GT 710 1GB DDR3 PCI Express x1 Video Card ZT-71304-20L

Pros: Its pci express 1 and low bracket if needed

Cons: None

Overall Review: I like this as an option for Boards that only can spair pci express one slot, i have this card also with pci express x 16 cant really tell any difference in desktop performance. I have bought plenty of video cards and they all have thier own personalities this one is great i have a Saphire rx 470 8gb card that I bought brand new cheap from new egg and didnt realize that it only had one port being the Dvi anyways later down the road I bought this to have two other screens It works flawlessly I was playing Tombraider with all setttings max out on 1920x 1080 since the dvi port limits me too with rx 470 anyways I used this card with limited pci express x 1 that is this 710 With tombraider in window mode not fullscreen & was pulling 37 frames The 710 was maxed out with gpu clock and mem clock of course but Memory USED was only 200 mb I was amazed to see The 8gb 470 playing through the limited pci express x 1 710 If cheaper I would by more but I dont really need anymore right now. Got to my house in like 2 or 3 days

Works well with windows 10 remote access

Corn Electronics NANO 802.11n 2.4G 150Mbps USB WiFi Dongle & Wireless Network Adapter for Laptop / Desktop Computer

Pros: This worked out well and this company should really pick up well, , but needless to say its plug and play, gotta love windows 10, lol. i kept looking and looking, conrol panel device manager no go but device manager showed network adapter, or was that vice er versa.

Cons: this worked out well and this company should really pick up well, just their website lacked for me a support for easy access to drivers because whatch out for when u onpen package there is a mini disk u cant see when oping with steak knife

Overall Review: I dont use wireless much i turn it off when i can this runs 58 probably better than my belkin, people who have bad reviews need to check other networking settings of system, my only question is how long will it last. No 5 G 4 ME

complete compatibility

GIGABYTE GA-970A-DS3P (rev. 2.0) AM3+ AMD 970 SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 ATX AMD Motherboard

Pros: went together well 2 sata 6gb wires nice wires with right angle and straight, documentation shows front panel hook up unlike my last asus bored no screws or stand offs but i think that comes with the case i had an old rosewill challenger case with standoffs already set up. I like this bored cause of the V.R heatsinks nice temps im only running phenom 2 x 4 960t with aluminum amd heatsink, will not unlock to six core. its 80 f in the house running 100 percent with virus protection, going right now temps are 44 c cpu 43 case temps cpu socket 56c with 4 dimms of gskill 1.35 volts 1333 cas latency 777 G.SKILL ECO Series on rx 460 51c three monitors. samsung 840 256 gb 42c i like nice and simple. fun to build.

Cons: no so far only had it up and running one day, usually use msi and asus. seems alright so far no cons,

Overall Review: yeah i would recommond this bored new for the price, not power house for 20/19 but sometimes u dont need all that
